  2. 2. ANIMATE l E YOURS e mOWN n e FABLE Animation: Fina xercise ester O Overview Digital Storytelling is a multimedia convergence of many things that you have learned during the semester. You will have the chance to apply all of the lessons that you learned or practiced during the semester while creating your own animated fable. Objectives The students will research an Aesop fable, develop the characters and setting(s), story- board the fable, create an animatic (rough draft/animated storyboard), and then create a final draft of their animated fable with sound. They may use either Flash or Toonboom! WHAT? Create your own Animated Fa- ble from initial concept through final animation. WHY? This culminating activ- ity will demonstrate the skills and abilities that you have developed during the course of the year. HOW? You will use the stylus and computer to cre- ate your animated fable.

  3. 3. STEP BY STEP STEP ONE Spend 5 to 10 minutes reviewing Aesop Fables online. Choose a story that you can visualize. You can put your own twist or modern spin on the fable as well. Each fable can only be used one time per class.. STEP TWO Brainstorm visually telling the story. Make sure you like the story and will be able to make an interest- ing animation from the story. Before you start drawing/sketch- ing, what tone/style are you look- ing to have in your fable? Do some research and decide some possible character looks and anything else you think you will have to animate. instructor: mr. sheridan jsheridan@seq.orgfinalb-sheridan-itec854.indd 03 7/7/10 9:43 PM
  4. 4. STEP BY STEP STEP THREE Now that you have decided on the story, start developing the main characters. This example shows some sketches of the main character. As you are developing the char- acters, keep in mind the tone that you have decided to use. Poses or expressions that are very typical will be helpful when you are storyboarding or animat- ing your fable. Artwork by J. Sheridan STEP FOUR This will be a perfect time to ex- aggerate or simplify your designs based on your tone. Is the story a comedy? Drama? Emotionally intense? You want to plan on the various FINAL SEMESTER 1 EXERCISE expressions or emotions that your character(s) will display during the fable. ANIMATION Artwork by J. Sheridan 03finalb-sheridan-itec854.indd 04 7/7/10 9:43 PM
  5. 5. STEP BY STEP STEP FIVE Now you can develop your storyboard from your story and your character sketches. In the storyboard you are work- ing on planning out the story visually. The drawings do not have to be perfect- the most important thing is showing the characters and how they interact either with each other or the environ- ment.. Artwork by J. Sheridan STEP SIX Continue Developing your story- board. Spend 3 days working on the drawings for the storyboard. Having a good storyboard will make creating the animatic much easier. Artwork by J.
