Quest 1: Story DevelopmentTo create an animation, you must begin with developing a story. This story must be original and could be true to life or from your imagination. There are 3 parts to this quest:
- The Story Treatment
- The Story Board
- The Story Structure Worksheet
Quest 2: Character DevelopmentUnderstanding your character - both visually and in terms of backstory, motivations and etc. is extremely important in Animation.
For this quest, we will create a variety of character sketches so that you will have a deeper visual understanding of your character.
Quest 3: the Script & AudioBefore we can animate, we need to have a script to plan out any audio, music, and sound effects. As we've seen when there have been some technical difficulties, an animation without sound is boring - we don't want boring animations! After creating the script we will record our audio.
