Brainstorming on this project was difficult. It took us a long time to get to this idea, an overall comedic/surrealist take on “Helping Hands”. We went through many iterations. One goal, for comedy, was to think of three “trouble” situations for the protagonist to overcome. Something like getting water spilled on him, or tripping, or his actions being misinterpreted by a girl he liked. We eventually got to this idea of mysterious hands which were “overly helpful” and went from just helping start the day to controlling the character’s behavior. We envisioned a climactic fight over a doughnut among other things. It was a lot of fun but very frustrating trying to envision this without many guidelines. We had no idea who would be acting in it either.
