Animation - Story Creation (7th April 2010)

Each student is to come up with 3 stories.
Bring the hardcopy of the stories for discussion during the next lesson, 8th April 2010.

Some things that you might want to take note of are:

* Use the research information that you and your group have collated earlier in Term 1 to come out with some initial story ideas/seeds
* Do be mindful of your 5W+1H's (Who, What, Where, When, Why, How). For eg, who is your target audience, what is the message that you want to deliver, when would be an appropriate time for your clip to be shown, why do you think your clip would be most effective, etc
* The 4 key structures of a story, as mentioned in the last session on creating a story:
o PREMISE: (5W+1H, Protagonists, Antagonists, Goals)
o CONFLICT: Goals, Opposing Attributes, the Antagonists (Others, Self, the surrounding Environment)
o Crisis: Height of Conflict, Important Decision
o Climax: Resolution of Conflict, Achievement of Goals
