4D ideation week 2

Idea 1: Childhood rhyme

I want to make experimental music video on one of the Cantonese childhood rhyme that I have heard since young.

The name of the rhyme is called 點蟲蟲, which means point the worm.

Rhyme: 點蟲蟲, 蟲蟲飛。飛去邊﹖飛去荔枝畿。荔枝熟, 摘滿一包袱。

Rough english translation: Point the worm, the worm flies. The worm files to lichee site. Lichee ripen, (I/we) filled the bag with Lichee.

There is also a game which uses this rhyme to train children on their reflexes. The game is the adult would put an index finger on the child palm and sing out 點蟲蟲. The child is then expected to quickly grab the finger after the adult finished the rhyme, and the adult would try to avoid being caught by the child.

I want to incorporate the idea of this game and some of the images related to the song into the music video.

I am thinking of using a mixture of filming and stop motion animation in this film.

Idea 2: Bras Basah Complex


I want to film a experimental documentary video on the Bras Basah Complex. The Bras Basah Complex is built in 1980s. It is a famous place for students for books and art materials.

Inspired by the “5 minutes Museum” by Paul Bursh, I want to use similar style of filming (stop-motion) on Bras Basah Complex, to capture the  objects like books and people of that place.

Idea 3: Being Unique

Inspired by the short animation video “Eggplant” by Yangzi She (https://vimeo.com/145897706), I want to create a narrative story about being oneself.

I will be using colors to represents people different personalities. There will also be a main character that is trying to be unique but is discriminated by others along the way which he/she will try to resolve. As for the detailed storyline, i haven’t thought in-depth into it yet.

I am interested in using stop-motion animation on this film.

Thats’s all.
