“The Boy Who Drew Cats”

Introduction To My Animation:
I am posting my scratch animation which is about the story “The Boy Who Drew Cats” by Hasegawa Takejirō. The idea behind this project is identifying major moral decisions in the text and creating an alternate choice or decision. “The Boy Who Drew Cats” is about a boy who must decide whether or not to return to his family after being kicked out of a temple. The boy’s passion save a whole town from a huge threat. But in my alternate ending where he chooses to return home, the threat continues to terrorize the village. The boy is a little boy who has a passion for drawing cats. His father is a stern man who doesn’t tolerate children who can’t help him in life. The boy’s brothers are all excellent farmers who make fun of the boy’s lack of skill. The priest is kind and recognizes the boy’s real skill. The giant goblin-rat is menacing and threatening. I chose this fairy tale because it is about a boy who’s passions and his love for his passion helped save a village. It has a strong moral about not giving up on what you love, which is what I was trying to portray in my alternate ending, when he gives up on his passion.

My Fairy tale Remix of The Princess and the Pea

Intro to my fairy tale remixes The Princess and the Pea.
I remixed The Princess and the Pea making it much longer and I had an alternate ending. The Princess and the Pea is about a princess who is stuck outside on a rainy night and gets welcomed into the home of the king and queen when they found her outside. When she gets welcomed into the home of the king and queen the queen doubted the princess, not believing she was a real princess. To make sure she was a real princess she put a pea under 20 eider beds and waited until the morning. The queen knew that only a princess would be as sensitive as to leave the pea under the 20 eider beds. When the princess woke up she told the queen that she slept terribly and now that the queen knew that she was a real princess she allowed the prince to propose to her. However, in my alternate ending the princess told the queen that she slept good and with that she left the palace right after she changed into clean clothes with the prince never proposing to her. The process to making this animation was very hard. First I had to make a script that had to be revised over and over again to fit the constraints and design specification I needed to meet in order to complete this animation. I also had to create multiple storyboards making backdrops and editing characters in order to sketch out my animation. The process of making the actual animation was very challenging. There was a lot of coding involved and I had to make sure the timing was perfect and make sure I included everything including their movements.

Little Red Riding Hood the Animation

Hello fellow viewer, I would like to introduce you to my fairy tale animation. You’ve heard of Little Red Riding Hood before, right? It’s the story about a little girl who sets out to visit her grandma and meets a wolf. She decides to tell it where she’s going. After that, her grandma is eaten and a little while after, she is as well. My animation provides a choice where you can choose whether or not to tell the wolf where Little Red Riding Hood is going. In my alternate ending where Little Red Riding Hood doesn’t tell the wolf, the wolf ends up dead with axes sticking out of its body. Creating the animation wasn’t a simple process. In fact, I had to first come up with what I was going to make the animation about. I chose a simple, yet meaningful fairy tale and wrote a script based off of the original story, which was written by Charles Perrault. The next step was to create a storyboard for my animation, a reference that I could base my final product off of. After the storyboards were created, I made the actual animation.

Little Red Riding Hood Animation on Scratch by Tenzin C.

HELLO FELLOW YOUTHVOICES MEMBERS!!!! THIS IS TENZIN C!

There are some really good fairy tales out there, as well as some… not so good ones. But Little red Riding Hood by Charles Perrault is a classic. In my scratch animation, the original story is animated, but there is an alternative ending for you to view. Briefly, Red lies to the Wolf and sends him out of town, while the Hunter finds the wolf and a perfect opportunity to make some money. The process was not as simple though. I first had to write the script and create the storyboard for the project (link below), and then the coding could start. There were many different problems that I came across but i finally managed to come up with this masterpiece. A preview of the animation is below. Enjoy!

This is the animation scratch!

This link has the script and the storyboards that were made and used.

THANKS FOR READING!


Blue Beard Remixed

My story includes a jealous wife who learns the hard way that curiosity definitely killed the cat…

I created an animation where the watcher gets to chose a moral decision for a classic fairytale. I chose the story of blue beard because I found it fun that it had such dire consequences. I ended up being able to really switch the ending in a way that you can tell there was a huge change to the story. I started by writing a script for all the characters that introduced them and gave them their lines. Next I made a storyboard, which is basically a comic strip that acts as a blue print for the final result. Finally I code the animation through scratch to later post it here. I put my process down below… enjoy 🙂

This is a link to my script…<-

Next is my story board:

The Boy and the Wolves Remix

In this project, I chose to animate a Native American story, and I added an alternate ending to the animation as well as the original. The viewer can choose the ending by answering yes or no at one point in the story.

 

[iframe allowtransparency=”true” width=”485″ height=”402″ src=”//scratch.mit.edu/projects/embed/157462127/?autostart=false” frameborder=”0″allowfullscreen]

I basically just wrote out the lines of the original story in my script and then wrote whatever I wanted for the alternate ending.

Little Red Riding Hood (remixed)

My animated story is a remixed version of Little Red Riding Hood. Halfway through the story there is a choice. Should Little Red Riding Hood Tell the wolf when she is going? You can choose. There are two endings that let you see the results of both actions.

Creating my final animation was a multiple step process. First, I chose the story and wrote my alternate ending. Next, I wrote a script, which was based on my story. In my script, it was important to include stage directions so I would know how each character is supposed to move. Then, I completed two storyboards: one for Act 1 and the other for Act 2a and Act 2b. This step was important because it helped me visualize where everything would be placed in my animation. After completing all of these steps, I finally created my animated story.

Here are some screen shots of the code I used to create this animation:

 


Little-Brier Rose remixed

Hi there! My animation is about the story of Little-Brier Rose. You might know it as the tale of sleeping beauty> This story is interactive. This just means that the viewer can decide what happens! There is one ending, which is the original ending of the story. While, the other ending has a cheese monkey in it!

The process I used to create this animation was very challenging. First, I created a script> I created one part for act 1 and one part for act 2a and one for act 2b (which were the 2 alternate endings to my animation. Then i used storyboardthat.com to make a storyboard that displays my animation. After that, I created a plan to follow everyday so that i could finish it as soon as possible.

Little Red Riding Hood Remixed

Welcome to my animation! I made an animated version of Little Red Riding Hood with a twist. In my animation you can make a decision which will change the ending, It’s a way to explore different versions of this classic fairy tale.

[iframe allowtransparency=”true” width=”485″ height=”402″ src=”//scratch.mit.edu/projects/embed/134574716/?autostart=false” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen]

To make this animation, I first had to learn how to create an interactive animation. After that was learned I had to research different fairy tales to see which one I would like to write about. I created a draft of the basic idea of what will happen. Then I created a script which included the two decisions.

Here’s a link to my script: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1b9W3SBJ-Ji8pxN17q8DEHvueNpnTUCXUw2tzRfXJryg/edit?usp=sharing

After creating a script I made storyboards to plan out my project using StoryBoardThat. Here I was able to show the emotions of my story using the characters given.  I was able to use the characters in the storyboard in my animation. While making my animation I divided the work among the time that I was given. i was very pleased with the results since I was new to Scratch. I was able to change the story in a way that still got the same message out. It was a new experience to represent myself within an animation.

Here are my storyboards and a screenshot of my programming:

 


The Fairies Remixed

 

“The Fairies” is a fairy tale collected by Charles Perrault. It is about a girl who receives the gift of having jewels fall out of her mouth after giving water to a beggar disguised as a fairy. Her sister is jealous, so she also goes to draw the fairy some water. However, she is cruel, like their mother, so she decides not to and receives a curse to have snakes and toads fall out of her mouth. Her mother drives the two girls out of her house. The good sister meets a prince, marries him, and they all live happily ever after, but no one wants to take in her sister because of her curse, so she dies alone in the forest. I created an interactive animation version of the story that, if the watcher chooses to, can lead to a happier ending for the bad sister based on the moral decision that she makes.

To make this final animation, I had to first go through a series of steps. The very first thing I did was create some short, simple interactive animations for practice. I then chose a story to work with. After choosing my story, I wrote a script to use for the dialogue in my animation. Then, using StoryboardThat, I created a storyboard for each of my acts, including the alternate ending, to plan all the scenes out and know how each character would have to move and react to each part of the story. I then created a project plan to plan my time out over the course of a week to make the actual animation. I then finally set to work creating it on Scratch. When I was done, I wrote a modified project script including all the changes I made throughout the creation of the animation and edited my project. After a tiring weekend, I was finally done. I shared my animation and rested.

[iframe allowtransparency=”true” width=”485″ height=”402″ src=”//scratch.mit.edu/projects/embed/132421697/?autostart=false” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen]

To complete my animation, I made storyboards and scripts to represent what I wanted my final project to look like. I then made a plan to plan my time and stuck to it. That is how I completed my animation.

Act 1                                                                       Act 2A      Act 2B

Those are my storyboards I created up above.
