Final Project Proposal


-A live camera will be pointed down at imagery underneath.

-The live camera will be displaying imagery from a box that I will be building, with paper cutouts of each of the three scenes represented in my animations so far.

Phase One

-The box will be placed underneath the camera. Three scenes will slide in and out of the box, revealing different environments.

-These scenes will go from the mountains to the plains and the city

-Paper contraptions within the box will reveal different elements of each environment (The sun will come out, a tractor might cross the plains, etc.)

Phase Two

-The actions on the box will be repeated, only this time, the screen will display animations on top of the live feed

-Pre-rendered animations with alpha channels will interact with live manipulation of the box

Phase Three

-I’m imagining the loop being carried out two more times, with animation getting crazier and more convoluted with each go-round, and the cycle goes on


-Sound. I don’t want to be sitting in silence for this whole thing, but I don’t know what to use for sound

-Exactly what will be happening with the paper display. I’m hoping that what happens in the paper world will trigger the animations (eg. Sun coming out and melting mountains, harvester popping up and triggering the wheat transformation) but exactly what that will look like will depend on what I can pull of with paper.

-The ending.
