The Ant and the Dove
I created the scratch animation the Ant and the Dove as a response to my project to create an interactive ethical story. An ethical story is a story in which a reader chooses, or the character chooses the right path or the wrong path, and when it isn't modified the endings of the stories in which the character chooses wrong he has a very painful punishment. Some examples include Aesop's Fables.
My story is about an Ant who wants a grape, and he has competition from another ant. But the Ant falls into the river, and a dove who happens to be there drops a leaf and the Ant was saved, Once he got the grape, a hunter showed up and was about to kill the dove when the Ant bit him, therefore causing the hunters shot to miss and giving enough time for the dove to escape. But in order to bite the hunter, you had to put down the grape and let the other ant take it. If you don't, well, watch for yourself!
My story was inspired by my friend, who recommended a website. I found this story engaging and decided to base my ethical story on it. I basically went with the flow while making this project, tweaking things here and there in order to make it a bit better.
I think I was successful in creating my story, but one of the choices was a bit biased because I didn't fully explain how you died if you chose wrong. If you take the time to read this, you died because you fell into the river again, and this time there was no dove to help save you. Fate has a cruel way of dealing punishment, but the moral is true: Do unto others as you would want them to you.
