Navigation Project: Update Early thoughts

Der three things...

Taxidermist:

I like the idea of a rogue Taxidermist, not necessarily the type of Rogue Taxidermist who creates funny looking animals out of other animals like this but more like a wandering vagabond Taxidermist.

Forest:

Not so keen on the literal meaning of the a Forest, trees are great and all that but so much has been done with tree's, leaves, bark and animal droppings that its tough to get excited by the prospect of having a literal forest as the setting for my story. Certainly going to side-step, but doesn't mean that it won't take some inspiration from a forest. A forest to me seems too obvious a place for a taxidermist to hang about.

Camera:

No idea what this camera will do, stupid camera. Perhaps it'll get broken and then incinerated within the first couple seconds and serve as the 'MacGuffin'. Also obvious links between what a camera does and what a taxidermist does. I think some blatant in your face symbolism is totally in order here.

Story:

Wandering Vagabond Taxidermist, goes to Forest which isn't actually a Forest, takes pictures of Animals, done.

Style/Setting:

High School RomCom with Taxidermy
