Commission Overview

Brief details now, images to follow tomorrow.

I shall endeavour to communicate the 'Cell Cycle'.

Initially I envisage a military style briefing, given to Prokaryotic 'troops'.This will take the form of a bootcamp style given by a Sergeant Major to trainees to inform them of the expectations placed on them. Either that, or a mission briefing delivered by a General to crack troops advising them of mission objectives (mitosis and division).

Music can be a rousing score indicative of the British military circa 1945. I shall voice the script in a befitting manner. An exaggerated drill Sergeant similar to Michael Palin in 'Monty Pythons: The Meaning of Life' or something similar to Peter Sellers' performance as RAF officer in Stanley Kubrick's 'Dr Strangelove Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb'.

Another idea would be to present the animation as if it were a 1950's style public information film. Delivered by a Prokaryotic Cell wearing a suit or a lab coat, explaining the Cell's cycle. At least this with this idea I could get away with calling the film, 'Go Forth and Multiply'... just a thought ;).

Early concepts on character appearance will follow.
