Animation: Structure is everything!

Hi all,

This will be a short post today as I am in the middle of getting a stage play ready for performance a fortnight today. Interestingly, unlike my comedy farce from earlier in the year, this stage play – ‘The Lost World of Malcolm Ridge’ -has a non-linear structure. I won’t go in to detail other than to say that whatever you write – be that an animation, a TV series, a screenplay, a radio play, a novel,  stage play or whatever, make sure the structure works because this and plot are the  backbone on which everything else hangs.

Okay, onto all things animated.

Firstly, please find the third installment of my notes from Barbara Slade’s ‘Writing Animation’ seminar by clicking here.

Secondly, the other two installments from Barbara Slade’s animation class can be found here.

Til next time, keep it animated!


ps this week’s greyscale image is taken from the flyer we are using for the play.
