After showing my ideas to my tutors, i was encouraged to follow my idea about the life of a pointe shoe as its a great metaphor for the life of a ballerina due to the fact that dance takes its toll on a ballerinas body the same way it does to their shoes. The more they are worked, the more they wear out.
I have so far produced a short animation of a ballet shoe pirouetting as way to explore how i want my final film to look. I took reference from the film Black Swan (2010)
I will now be spending my time sketching and researching ballet animations and videos.
