For this project my three words were; trapeze artist, grappling hook and museum. It was quite easy to fall into the generic trap of thinking of an acrobatic thief stealing from a museum and obviously didn't want to do something quite typical like that.
The idea I propose for my project is a museum dedicated to circuses, and one of the displays it has an old yellowing newspaper clipping and rusting grappling hook with it. The story within the newspaper clipping describes a horrific accident at a popular troupe's performance, and all that's left of them is this report, name completely tarnished because of the accident. What that is, well I'm not entirely sure just yet. Maybe the star performer, a trapeze artist had introduced a grappling hook into his routine and it went completely wrong? Maybe his screw up cause fatalities in the audience?
I'm currently putting together some storyboard ideas for this and a couple of pose studies as I'd find them quite beneficial for this project, regardless of what idea I end up going with in the end. I've also been throwing influence maps together too as I've been looking at designs quite a lot this past week and those will be posted up shortly.
