Choose Your Own Adventure Assignment For Animation

For this project you will be creating an adventure of some sorts that pauses periodically and gives the viewer a choice in where the story goes, thus a "choose your own adventure" tale! Your movie must contain:

* 6+ adventures
* goto and play
* stop
* up, over, down, hit states
* no stick figures
*motion and shape tweens
* movie files
* three instances of sound
* published with naming convention quicktime file and a .html file in a folder

The Process
1. Brainstorm and Idea Session individual and then group
2. Sketches of characters
3. Treatment with story info is next. Answer all of these in complete sentences and place in my classes period 1 folder on the staff server.
  • Who are the characters? Describe in detail.
  • Where does the story take place. Describe the locations.
  • What is the story from beginning to end?
  • What are the options in the choose your own adventure?
  • How will your animation be more interesting and better looking than your last project?
4. Storyboard your video over 30 frames (you will obviously skip quite a few frames when you do this. Just give the general idea.)
5. We will go over how to create movie files.
6. Create the animation
7. We will go over how to add action scripts and buttons to your project. This will be the final piece we add.
