The Precipitous Precipice

The Continuing Misfortunes of Simple Graphics Man ~

#10: The Precipitous Precipice.

Simple Graphics Man goes for a clifftop walk, but the fresh sea air goes to his head and he strays a mite too close to the edge...

Thanks Pete for the pic.

The cliff is floating in space. How did he up there to begin with?

"They made signs for me to come down from the rock, and go towards the shore, which I accordingly did; and the flying island being raised to a convenient height, the verge directly over me, a chain was let down from the lowest gallery, with a seat fastened to the bottom, to which I fixed my self, and was drawn up by pulleys."

Well SGM certainly faces at least as many perils as Gulliver anyway.

It occurs to me also that a CGI SGM would be a doddle. In fact, the SGM movie would be easy-peasy. I could do it on my Mac. Now let's see, what would we call it?

CGI SGM:can I wear the motion capture suit? We have the same body type.

Wolfman: Sure. I've heard you have had personal experience that might come in handy - especially in the realm of bicycles and steep slopes. Do you think you can convey the sense of SGM's anguish? I mean, you'll be competing with Andy Sirkus...

Reverend: Using Andy Serkis to motion capture SGM is a most excellent idea. Is he going to do a Gollum-esque voice as well?

You may as well let WETA do all the animation for the movie now that Pixar is owned by Disney. Disney would probably cut out SGM's raunchy sex scene (I'm pretty sure they has rules against simple graphics penises).

Maybe if he wasn't the size and weight of a radioactivated Lieutenant Colonel Glenn Manning, the ground wouldn't collapse beneath him.
