believes that within the next half a century, if not sooner, we will be able to download human consciousness in digitalized form and either give it a life in cyberspace, or put it inside robots.

Treatment

Why?
Do not have to draw Can reuse cuttings

Treatment

Downside
lots of preparation Need to find all the clippings from newspapers Can take along time

Influences

Non-linear/linear component
Interactivity
Choosing the look of the robot -being able to select the eyes, nose, lips Help in making the robot -pulling the colander onto his head -pressing yes or no to transform -connecting the wires -dragging in the new arm

What will this be able to achieve?


Keep the audience engaged with the animation Will give idea of freedom within the animation as there will be different options

Difficulties
What problems will it have
Involve a lot of preparation Am I going to be able to source all of the clippings

To help resolve these problems


Time management is going to be key I will try and collect any free newspapers, leaflets, and magazines
