Project Overview

Around the World in Eighty Days is an adventure novel by the French writer Jules Verne, first published in French in 1872. In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly employed French valet Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager set by his friends at the Reform Club. They took an unexpextedly amazing aventure and won their prize successfully.

We use a creative artstyle to remake the dramatic climax of the story which is Fogg and Passepartout were put in a prison by mistake and finally were released at the last moment.


Process


Script

Extract and combine the most exciting parts of the whole story which are the arresting and adventure.


Artstyle

First, differentiate the dark and bright side of the character. Then use newspaper texture to color the brightness and use brushes to paint the darkness. Finally unify the style.


Editing and combining

First, extract iconic shots during their journey from the original movie, then add some suitable transitions like bell ringing, vehicle transportation in that historical background. After that, unify the style with artworks. The last step is to synchronise the score with the plots.
