Things unlikely to happen (EVER) - Animated Elisabeth das musical. Concept designs (Part 1)
soooo yeah once it was a cracky joke, but i loved the idea of animated version of Elisabeth so much, my brain refused to work on anything but this (i tried to step away from the way characters were portrayed on the stage (yeeah TRIED is the right word) to make it less fanart-y haha) Anyway i know absolutely nothing about animation, but i’ve got a lot of ideas on this *project* (because i believe it would look hella rad duh) so be prepared for next part (which will consist of creepy furniture and *ahem* frau wolf’s ladies mostly)
one thing I find hilarious is when Shakespeare quotes are used out of context
like, people are always saying “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them” as if it’s all deep and meaningful when actually it comes from a prank letter in Twelfth Night
and “This above all: to thine own self be true” comes from Polonius in Hamlet wherein the joke is that he’s an old pompous dude giving a long and rambling speech full of contradictory pointless advice to his son
“Brevity is the soul of wit” is another joke, because again, it’s made by Polonius who will just not shut up
it’s “we are such stuff as dreams are made on” not “of “, as in, “such stuff as dreams are built on”
“wherefore art thou, Romeo” doesn’t mean “where are you, Romeo” it means “why the fuck are you called Romeo, shit, I wanted to bang you but I can’t because you’re a goddamn Montague”
all these lines have acquired a kind of dignity in text that they never had in performance or are constantly misinterpreted
It’s not necessarily bad but it is kind of funny, sometimes.
