Ding Dong Bell

Ding Dong Bell

Ding Dong Bell, an Nursery Rhyme that describe a poor cat has
been put in the well by an naughty kid Tommy
Green( Different version, different naming). After that, there is
a kid Johnny Stout save the cat and pulled it out. At the end,
we know that the cat was a good cat which killed the mouse in
barn.
It is an happy ending in general, however, in the origin rhyme,
it does not mention the cat being pulled out by anyone. The
fear that children might be affected by the horror and
violence, it has led to several attempts to reform it, and that is
the reason of the appearance of the "Johnny Stout".

Storyboard-1

This is a rhyme that suitable for children read, with sweet characters and fun. It is following the
normal "Ding Dong Bell" rhyme which end up with a happy and wonderful. It is good for children to
treat animal good because it is a helpful partner to us, and also pay attention to the one who did bad
stuff on animal.

Storyboard-2
It is a story target on adult and horror lovers, it is not suitable for children, although
the rhymes does not make any changes. It is a story about grudge, death, and black
humor. The whole story using dark and grey colour to present the mood of the story.

The concept of second storyboard is mainly from the original rhyme, it was end up with the cat's
death. In this storyboard, the cat was dead and turn into a ghost because of the grudge and
anger to Johnny Flynn. One day, Johnny heard a sound of a bell, "Ding, Dong, Ding, Dong.", it
makes him remind the cat which he put into the well before, at this moment, a cat and a little
boy walked pass, it was looked like the cat. "It was an illusion. It is impossible.", he thank.
Suddenly, the ghost cat appeared, and Johnny was eaten.

Character design- Normal ver.

(1)
(1) The design being changed for
few times, although body design
has been reform, hollow eyes is
the key characteristic of this
character. The whole design
concept is " it is lovely, cutie cat,
with deadly hollow eyes. Just like
looking at something we cannot
see."
(2) Black cat generally presents an
image of unfortunate, bad luck. So
I try to put on to its design
concept.
(3) The movement of the cat.

The making of normal cat is from these two
animations. They are cutie, innocent and facing death
at the end. Hollow eyes being used, it likely as an
image of no soul and hopeless to the world. These two
characters body were dead in the story, however, it
turns into another kind of creatures and continue to
live, which is an eternity life. These elements inspire
the making of the storyboard and character design.

Character Design - Ghost ver.

(1) Ghost, an unknown object


which usually there is no legs. This
character turn from a sweetie
creature to a bloody and savage
object. The design concept is
inspired from many horror movie

audiences that treat animal kindly
and gently otherwise they will
take revenge on you.

(2) Similar to Normal version,


black and grey are the main body
colour. It's eyes change into sharp
yellow cat eyes, like a predator.
Bloody hands presenting an image
of savage.

(1) The concept come from a song call "The Fairy Tale
of light and darkness" by Revo. In a moonlit night, trees
were swinging like catching something, at the end of
those trees, there was an old well. A myth said there
was a ghost cat and it would eat someone who killed
animal.

(2) That also from "The fairy Tale of Light and


Darkness" by Revo. That is the bottom of the well, it
was dirty and deep. If something throw into the well,
nothing can be climbed up until someone pulled the
rope.
