Our story begins with a wide angle shot of a futuristic
planet, similar to the Jetsons. The camera moves in on the planet, flying
around and eventually landing in a room.
This room reveals a piece of cheese on a plate, covered
with a doom-like force field. An Alien is sitting comfortably on a chair,
Enter Mouse character, Darwin. ( We have a few visual
concepts of Darwin.)
He cautiously approaches the cheese.
The camera pulls out showing a huge ray gun aimed at the
plate of cheese.
Darwin rather confidently walks over to the ray gun, presses
a button, and out pops a lever. He pulls the level down, disabling both
the force field and the ray gun.
The camera zooms in for a close up showing a very satisfied
and happy little mouse.
Cut to a shot of a busy factory that is making ray guns.
Camera pans in and shows a stamp of approval being pasted on one of
the finished ray guns. The camera pulls out showing a mouse with a conspiratorial
grin at the camera.

We have arrived at a common character colour scheme of
pink and green spots on our Mouse, and pink and green stripes on our
Alien. The colours will be used often throughout our mini film establishing
continuity. (Colour texture have already been done in Photoshop)
Our main character, Darwin, will be cool but cute
very lovable. The Alien is somewhat non descript in character, a nebbish,
almost a stand in. The essence of the story being that the mouse population
is more intelligent than Alien.
