The Goonies

The Goonies - student project


For my project I have chose to work with one of my always favourite film, The Goonies. I think it gives a lot of ideas, it has maps, traps, skulls, treasure and of course adventures! I love the 80' movies style! Let's start!


My keywords for this movie are:

  • Maps
  • Route
  • Bicycles
  • Kids
  • Treasure
  • Skulls
  • Pirates
  • Pirate's patch
  • Chocolate!!!
  • Slot
  • Traps
  • Fratelli's family
  • Gold and diamonds
  • 80's style

Also I have think one keyword for each Goonie:

  • Mikey - Inhaler
  • Brand - ¿Elastic extensor? ¿hair band?
  • Chunk - Chocolate bar
  • Mouth - Comb
  • Data - A trap, of course ( bites one! )
  • Stef - Broken glasses
  • Andy - I don't know, maybe a cheerleader pompom? 

Here is a board with some posters of the film:

I have been a little busy this week and also I'm feeling bogged down with the concept of the animation. There are a lot of elements and actions key on this films and I don't know which ones to choose because I want to do something clear and simple, not a new version of the film.

So, on one hand I would like to show the differents elements characteristics of each character, but on the other hand I like the story of the map, the treasure and the traps and all of that, I mean the storytelling.


I had been very blocked, doing some sketches but finally I have seen the light between a coke and some olives :D
