At 2.30 I had a meeting with Steve about the materials and style of the NHS film.
So far Charlotte has written a preliminary asset list which I spoke to Steve about.

Supplies we already have to use:

Foam for characters bodies
Foam under wrap for characters fingers
Tin foil for characters head.
Small hooks for curtains
Needle and thread
Steve has agreed with me that as many backgrounds as possible should be drawn and placed on card (or similar) to give the illusion of depth. Only things and characters that directly interact with Jane should be stop-motion. The colour pallet must be the same for both stop-motion and 2D objects to keep continuity.
Steve also happens to be collaborating on a film that he felt could help with ours, using large illustrated pictures cut out to create backgrounds, the environment changes rapidly around a character with the pictures changing behind it.
