I’m beginning work on my Senior Project soon, so I’ve started coming up with some rough concepts.
I’m a huge fan of Lovecraft, so I’ve decided to base my Senior Project on his writings- specifically this quote from The Call of Cthulhu:
“That cult would never die till the stars came right again, and the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from His tomb to revive His subjects and resume His rule of earth. The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.”
The project will consist of eight animated, camera projected matte paintings- four set before Cthulhu arises from R'lyeh, and four set after.
