The typing jellyfish monster

« on: May 08, 2017, 11:13:35 am »

Perc Tucker Regional Gallery in Townsville is currently hosting an exhibition about the process of turning Shaun Tan's The Lost Thing from book into short film.
The book shows a kid having gone to the seaside in a depressing industrial world where the people are there to serve the city, which exists because - erm, no-one knows, but it is not there for the people. Their whole civilisation was inspired by Brazil, and a few other elements besides; the kid goes looking for bottle caps, and encounters a bizarre - thing. It's a creature buried in machinery, like the city, but it isn't like the city whose inhabitants exist to serve it; the thing is much more alive, therefore it doesn't belong, and the kid has to work out what to do with it.

Orkses is never beaten in battle. If we wins we wins and if we dies we dies fightin' so it don't count as beat. Even if we runs away it means we can always come back for anuvver go, see!
