Today I was talking to Phil about my story board. We were brain storming ideas of how I should go about making my storyboard. We thought of the beginning and the end, but the middle was giving me some trouble. So Phil told me to look at some slapstick comedy to give me ideas of making some thing simple into something disastrous. So today I watched a lot of slap stick cartoons, mostly Goofy's series. I first looked at Donald Duck because in every situation he always looses his temper, So I thought I could look at the temper outburst of slapstick, the second was Goofy because he always turn something simple into a disaster, and I also know that he has a very flexible body, since he turns into knot with the object he is using. I thought he would be a good reference for the contortionist part of my story. And finally Tom and Jerry, these guys are just full of slap stick, with hurting each other, the expressions they make when feeling pain, and their bizarre rivalry of cat and mouse.
Here are some videos I found to be very helpful with my story.
