Animation - Story Creation

The various groups would need to firm up your story by the next lesson, 13th April 2010. Those groups that are faster, you may start searching for images to be used in your storyboarding.

Some things that you might want to take note of in story creation:

* 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
