Now, let me show you some researches for the other character of my short-movie : Boru ! The faithful, optimistic and cheerful companion of Umio. Boru used to be human before but since the environment changed a lot, his body adapted and mutated to another form, half-fish and half-human. I’ve taken the koi carp as an inspiration for this character, the bright colors of red, orange and white were amazing contrast to the blues of the sea and sky. At first, I wanted to show in the storytelling some glimpses of the old body Boru used to have but after hearing good advices from teachers and friends, I threw away this idea.
An ornate shrine which was designed to hold a sacred text known as the Stowe Missal. It dates from circa 1030 AD and contains inscription that reads ‘pray for the king of Ireland Donnchad son of Brian (Boru) and Gormlaith’.
