Shadow of Brutality/Evolution of Combat
For my project I am going to show the evolution of combat throughout human history through the use of shadow. Using my hands, paper cut outs and whatever else is deemed necessary, I am going to animate shadows on a wall. Then I go to a medieval army marching, followed by a flurry of arrows arising from behind them.
My project will start off simple, with one caveman hitting the other with a stick or club. I may or may not use text throughout but if I do it will be with my hands, unless there is some sort of shadow puppet font I can use. If I do use text then the word "Bonk" will float through the air. I then go to the Roman/Gladiator age, where the emperor's thumbs down makes one gladiator cut off the head of another. Next I will show a sea battle between pirates and another boat, followed by a World War One sequence where germans are shooting down many a soldier. Next will be the bombing of a village, then a tank blowing up random things. My last combat shot using shadows will be a finger pressing a button and missiles subsequently launching. My last shot I want to show an endless graveyard with the words "The End?" floating mysteriously in the background, but that might change.
