Douglas Adams competition - complete!

We've reached the end!
Our entry for the Literary Platform Douglas Adams competition is now complete and entered.

Here is our wonderful video. If you'd rather watch it at the Literary Platform instead of course, there's the added benefit of being able to give it an up vote (you know you want to)...
Anyway, enough shameless self advertising, here's the video:

I worked on this video alongside Faye WombwellBecky BurstAdam Poole and Chloe Brown, and I'm very pleased with the outcome.

The brief was to illustrate the words of Douglas Adams using all or part of the provided recording. I think we've illustrated well and in an interesting way. We've also put in a fair few little gags and references to the works of Adams which will hopefully be a bit of fun for those who spot them. To keep with the spirit of Adams's writing we wanted to keep the animation light hearted and humorous, and I think we've done that too.


  1. Well done Dan on the completion of the project, I watched the animation and I thought it was very good and well done for everyone working so close together and producing the film of this quality in such a short space of time. Remember the blog goes towards the majority of grade in this project and you need to make sure you demonstrate how you spent your 125+ hours on this project. You've made a great start showing the designs for the cave men, but don't forget your research and also any other project that you looked and considered but reject and why. This all adds up to your hour-age for this module. Well done for the animation.

  2. Cheers Adrian. I'll get on that for the next post then.
    Guess it'll have to be a recap or something since it's going to be after everything else, is that all right?
