Together we looked at different articles with statistics that showed how much technology is taking over children’s lives.

We started to experiment with text but then after shooting the footage we found that this wouldn’t work in our animation.

After the text failed we moved on to using a baby with wire coming out of its head…this symbolises a television ariel that makes the child think, walk and talk. The television is taking over the child’s life.

We really enjoyed the doll technique, it was showing what we aimed to get across to parents.

After this achievement we started to brainstorm different idea’s for props. We thought of black matter, coming from the unknown taking happiness from a child’s life, due to lack of going outside in the environment. We wanted to add a television into the animation, wire, pipe wires and cloth.

This then lead us onto the final animation piece.
