Assigned Client Project - Final Idea

More development and taking feedback from my presentation showing my work on this project I feel I have reached the point where my idea is hitting the target I was aiming for and that it will convey my two key areas well ('Home' and 'Variety').

The Story

A man leaves his home (work? holiday?). 
He's sad and disappointed to be leaving (long day? missing something?).
He's left. His home small and simple.
Silence ensues.
Suddenly the home opens, a wall slides down, the roof lifts.
A castle wall extends from the side, a building rises opposite as a fountain sprays lightly in a square.
More buildings continue to rise, forming towering structures with the house at its core.
A Christmas tree pops up within a small room. The tracks of a tram spiral around a structure as the tram it self slowly trundles along them.
The Christmas tree grows squeezing into its tight room. The tram travels further, track growing ahead of it, as structures continue to build and unfold.
The Christmas tree bursts forth from the small room as it grows again, a towering structure of its own.
Night falls as the tram continues its journey. Lights flicker on inside it and spotlights illuminate the vast structures.
At the peak of the structures the tram ends its journey, the colourful lights of the fair shining out against the black of the night as it unfolds.
The structure is complete, rising high, full of activity as the rides jump into action and the tree gently rocks in the wind.
The man comes home, a skip in his step as he gets closer.
The man sees the structure, staring in awe at all that its built up from.
The man stands in wonder, silent.
Walking with eagerness/ pride he heads to his home.
The structure begins to close, folding back in on itself.
The man reaches the door of his home.
The structure is gone, it is a home again.
The man goes inside.
The warm glow of a fire/TV shines through the windows, the only light in the dark.
The home is small, warm, welcoming.


This is the story outlining what happens with my final animation. It details the idea of my character leaving his home with a sad and negative feel about him. With him leaving his small, simple house unfolds and elements symbolizing that of Nottingham features begin to form from it. All this happens resulting in a large active structure with the house at its centre.
When the character returns home, with a much more positive spin on his emotions, happy to be back, he stares in awe at the structure, taking it all in.
The structure closes up back to the simple home as he reaches the door, ending with the house giving off a warm glow through its windows.

The completed scene of the unfolded structure.
