    Evening Beckie,

    Okay - so the fixed camera / automata idea has bags of potential: I can sort of imagine it like a purposefully 'lo-fi' science project - the sort of thing someone might bring to a 'show and tell' at school, one of those science projects which Dad helped build in the garage. I guess for this reason I don't think you need the literal 'theatre set'; that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. You could just design the whole thing as if it's been made inside of a shoe-box or similar - we can see the sticky-tape and the drawing pins etc. Something like this?

    This was the fixed-shot video I was talking about:
    And this is other stuff I was talking about too: automata /

    You've hopefully seen this from a CAA student a while back:

    So yeah - I think this could be a really nice answer to the challenge of this project, but maybe a cardboard box automata-style 'science project' presentation might be the perfect blend of your original influences and the context of the scenario itself? In terms of texturing, for example, you could work with real textures of cardboard etc to really make the thing look 'hand-made'. Don't underestimate the challenge, however - this will take a lot of planning, designing, modelling, texturing, lighting - and then a lot of snappy animation too. I suggest you get stuck in as if your life depended on it! :)
