Research

Some research I did to try and find some inspiring material. Clare recommended the Terrahawks. The main ideas in all of these are that they are pretty simple in either design or story. The Ooglies don’t actually say anything, all they have is googly eyes and the sound basically makes it obvious how the character is feeling e.g. it makes little squeaks if it is scared. Kiwi is just fantastic in every way I think, sad ending though. Terrahawks is kind of creepy and reminds me of the witches from Doctor Who series 3. The Annoying Orange, well it’s pretty much self explanatory. It’s a simple concept, so if we try and keep the idea simple we should be grand.

Playing up on the asteroid and the dinosaur should be pretty good.
