Fox in
a box.

A fox from the country
undertakes a journey into
the city in search of rest bite
from hunting and to become
a success. He doesn’t
foresee the bizarre,
confusing and sinister
troubles that lie ahead.

Many people move into
cities in hope of finding
a better life for
themselves. In many
cases, the transition
from the country (or
small town) to the big
city is initially a struggle.
Finding your feet takes
some time and that is a
story in many people’s
lives that I feel would
engage an audience
and also work well with
my chosen treatment.

This outcome will host the
journey of the fox using
projection mapping. Large
cubes will be stacked up
haphazardly against a wall
to create an interesting
canvas. The structure of
the cubes will be taken
into consideration when
producing the animation
itself in order for the fox to
be able to actually move
from cube to cube. Each
cube will be a
setting/scene in the story.

Pulling inspiration
from German
(among other
sources), the scenes
will become more
and more off- kilter
as an indication of
getting closer to the
city and the fox’s
mind becoming more
unbalanced and
unfamiliar with it’s


Alice 1988 features a lot of
abstract environments that
would suit my animation very
well. The fox’s mind is going
to become disorientated and
this film really sums up the
unease that he will start to

Using a puppet fox like
this would contrast
against the skewed but
clean-cut appearance of
the expressionism style.

Although this German
expressionism is
some of the first that I
came across whilst
searching, it has a
very specific contrast
and flat look that
would work very well
as projected footage
against white boxes.
Not only that, it has the
dis-jointed abstract look
that I’m aiming for.

These ambient occlusion renders are
perfect 3D representations of what could
be achieved in Maya if I choose to go
down that route. Again, black and white,
these renders could be duplicated and
overlaid multiple times to give even
more of a concentrated, contrasting
look. Compatibility with projection
mapping would be perfect.

My environments wouldn’t be as
complex and high poly as these
but it’s still helpful to be reminded
that an AO-based approach
would work for me.

These are few examples
of projection mapping. It
offers the opportunity to
turn a video outcome into a physical,
installed piece of art. I might even go down
the route of making my outcome more of a
work of art than a video itself.
