We're just winding down on a new series at work and its becoming unusually quiet, so I came up with a really simple idea for a short mini series. The idea was to make it as simple as possible, one set and a couple of easy to make characters.
My idea was about a robot and a crab living on a small remote island, so I quickly mocked up the robot character.
Turned out okay but I don't like the hands - they where just a quick bodge job. Anyway I showed to my producer who liked the idea, but wanted me to move the story away from an island setting and suggested the moon.
I came up with a story more suited to that environment, using the robot and a small alien instead of the crab. I'm now going to try and remake the robot better (without the rust this time) and mold up some hands. I've said the idea would be quick and simple to make so hopefully it'll be finished in a few weeks! Gulp!!
