The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter is an old Japanese fairy tale telling of the princess of the moon Kaguya, and her adventures on earth when being raised by a bamboo cutter and his wife.



To create the animation, I created a script following the basic storyline of the tale in my own words. Then, I converted that script into a storyboard using storyboardthat and converted the sprites and backgrounds into scratch and made them into a fluid animation.


This is my script.
