Story: Known for their wackiness and their hyperactive energy of wanting to have fun all the time (plus their love for banana’s), these little yellow creatures are possibly the cutest animated characters that all ages have come to love and wish they could have our own Minion and this one has a present for you.
Creating: With the huge popularity of the Minions being seen everywhere on posters, toys and other merchandise’s, I knew I had to create my own project of working with a Minion. With so many different Minion’s to work with for my photo, I remembered the scene where three main Minions go to the shopping center to try and find a new unicorn doll for the character Agnes. Not succeeding in their mission given by Gru, one of the Minion’s then gives Agnes a handmade unicorn (made from a toilet brush with an ice cream corn for a horn, two doll eyes and white ball for a nose) and she of course falls in love with her new gift. Just by that one moment of the film and inspiration to creating this photograph, this created my idea of thinking if you were to be given something by a Minion, how would you react and feel? This then naming the photograph as Present.
Facts: How were the Minions actually created? Like everything that begins a new life it finds its way to grow and then becoming a creation of evolution, but with the Minions it started by being evolved from a cell organism which began growing their DNA and then multiplied and never age. As the Minions then began to grow in their numbers, they had been born to serve a master and do their part to help.
. Known mainly for their silly ways, sizes and their voices, the Minions were actually inspired by two other franchises of films which their characters were adapted by the Jawa’s from Star Wars A New Hope and the Oompa Loompa’s from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which when looking at how the Jawa’s act and are seen as small little creatures for having their own secret language and acting childish (which the actors of the Jawa’s in Star Wars were kids), you can then see where the Minions personality came from. As for the Oompa Loompa’s, the first time you see them is when they are working and are known for helping their master Willy Wonka, which then shows how the Minions are dedicated to their master Gru and look up to him and all wear the same uniform (G for ‘Gru’ and W for ‘Wonka’.
. As for their language, the Minions language is actually a real language. When the Minions talk it is actually different language’s from around the world, which is then mixed and is then altered together to creating their new language. That’s why when you hear certain words you know what they said and is voiced by the co-director of films Pierre Coffin.
