After missing Tuesday's Transcription briefing I've read through the assesment criteria and brief and I'm beginning to think about possiblities. After thinking about it and considering the projects I've worked on in the past, I'd love to transcribe a children's book to 3D. The first book I thought of, was one that although popular, is not the most widely known : Enid Blyton's The Faraway Tree.
The brief states: it needs to be a "complex project that exploits the aesthetic possibilities of digital environments." and this book, as I remember it, has such a rich description and basis of environment as well as characters, which I think would make it a perfect choice for a children's adaption.
I would have to decide whether to focus on Environment or Character, however, not focusing on characters from this book would be a huge opportunity missed. Two characters from this book really stick out in my mind - Moonface, a smartly dressed character with a massive moon-like head and The Saucepan Man, who is obviously, a man covered in Saucepans. There is also the possibility of creating the main characters from the book, the children who find the tree.
I'm going to leave this as a possibility as well as looking at other book options.
