Art Direction

Paper Cut-outs

  • moveable limbs
  • change eyes and mouth to make them blink and speak
  • Fabric materials applied to puppets to give three-dimensional feel to characters
    • Skeleton-princess –> tutu
    • Demon Clown –> balloons


Fireside Kids

  • Color
  • Detailed (in complete contrast to simple look of HIM story)

The Story Within the Story

  • Black Silhouette
  • Colored background
    • The Rules (orange)
    • HIM’s appearance (red)
    • Nimmy’s Demise (purple/blue/nightsky color with white dots for stars)

Transition Ideas:

  • Mask of the Storyteller Kid will be symbolic of the HIM story
    • either how Nimmy looks or how HIM likes
    • The Goonies title card?
