After our tutorial with Alan, we started to discuss how our animation could look. As our initial idea was too original/generic, we started to think about more ways as to make our animation unique, especially with regards to the style. We then started to talk about games like Battleblock theater and Limbo, and how we found their styles quite interesting. We then expanded from this and started to look at puppets/puppet animations, which lead us to Punch 'n' Judy and Shadow Puppets.
We will continue to discuss ideas and will look to have a final idea for both the story and style finalised soon.
