THE MAZE CRAZE ANIMATION

Hello! Please enjoy your “visit” on my page!

Creative Process

I have spent over a month working on this project! I created a script for the scenes, characters, and each word that they speak. I also created a storyboard to outline our animation before I actually made it.

The Maze Craze: Intro

The maze craze is a fantasy animation. The main plot is that a crazy scientist wizard is trying to trap the 2 kids of really smart professors after being placed in 3rd of the class. The kids overcome obstacles to get back to their parents safely and defeat the scientist.

Script Creation

The script it a play script that has 3 acts. If you would like to follow along on the script while playing the animation, it is posted below.
