The Little Red Riding Hood

 

 

 

My scratch animation is based off of the Grimm Brother’s Little Red Riding Hood. My intentions behind creating this animation was to teach the audience a life lesson. I wanted them to learn that they should never talk to strangers and most importantly, they should always listen to their elders. In my animation I let the audience choose what Little Red Riding Hood would do. This way the audience would learn the moral behind the story. If the audience decided to make Little Red Riding Hood listen to the wolf, then the outcome would be different. But, if the audience choose to not listen to the wolf then the outcome would be different as well. One decision led to a better ending while another decision led to a more gruesome ending. This is my animation and I hope you like it. 

 

 

 

 

Script:

    The Little Red Riding Hood

Act 1:  

[Little Red Riding Hood’s mom and Little Red Riding Hood are at home talking about grandma]

Mom: Come, Little Red Riding Hood, here is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine; take them to your grandmother, she is ill and weak, and they will do her good.

Little Red Riding Hood: Okay mom!

Little Red Riding Hood: I will take great care of her!

Mom: Don't forget to say, Good morning, and don't peep into every corner before you do it.

Little Red Riding Hood: Okay!

Mom: Be back before sunset.

Little Red Riding Hood: Okay, can I go now?

Mom: Yes, but be careful.

Little Red Riding Hood: I will mom.

Little Red Riding Hood: Bye!

Little Red Riding Hood: [Strolls along the path to her grandma’s house until she bumps into a wolf]

Wolf: Good day, Little Red Riding Hood!

Little Red Riding Hood: Thank you, kind wolf

Wolf: Whither away so early, Little Red Riding Hood?

Little Red Riding Hood: To my grandmother's.

Wolf: What have you got in your apron?

Little Red Riding Hood: Cake and wine; yesterday was baking-day, so poor sick grandmother is to have something good, to make her stronger.

Wolf: Where does your grandmother live, Little Red Riding Hood?

Little Red Riding Hood: A good quarter of a league farther on in the wood; her house stands under the three large oak-trees, the nut-trees are just below; you surely must know it.

Wolf: [Thinks to himself : What a tender young creature! what a nice plump mouthful - she will be better to eat than the old woman. I must act craftily, so as to catch both.]

Wolf: [Walks alongside Little Red Riding Hood]

Wolf: I believe, too, that you do not hear how sweetly the little birds are singing; you walk gravely along as if you were going to school, while everything else out here in the wood is merry.

Little Red Riding Hood: Hmmmm…?

Moral Decision: To obey their parents and that they must never talk to strangers. Little Red Riding did not listen to her mom about staying on path and would’ve died because of it. She talked to strangers like the Wolf, which led to the Wolf eating her grandma.

Act 2 A:

Little Red Riding Hood: Suppose I take grandmother a fresh nosegay; that would please her too. It is so early in the day that I shall still get there in good time.

Little Red Riding Hood: [skips towards the flowers]

Wolf: Now let's go eat that grandma! [Runs towards Little Red Riding Hoods Grandma’s house]

[Setting changes to  Little Red Riding Hoods Grandma’s house]

Wolf: [enters the cottage]

Wolf: Yummy!

Wolf: [Eats the grandma and changes into her clothes]

Little Red Riding Hood: [Finds the perfect flowers and skips back into her grandma’s house to find the wolf in her grandmother’s clothes.]

Little Red Riding Hood: Oh! Grandmother, what big ears you have

Wolf: All the better to hear you with, my child.

Little Red Riding Hood: But, grandmother, what big eyes you have!

Wolf: All the better to see you with, my dear.

Little Red Riding Hood: But, grandmother, what large hands you have!

Wolf: All the better to hug you with!

Wolf: [Leaps at the girl saying I’m a wolf.]

Little Red Riding Hood: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Wolf: [Eats the girl and goes to sleep.]

Hunter: [Enters the cottage wondering about the grandma.]

Hunter: Do I find you here, you old sinner!

Hunter:I have long sought you!

Hunter: He must have the ate the grandma and the girl. I must save them.

Hunter: [Cuts the wolf's belly open and helps the girl and grandma escape]

Little Red Riding Hood: [Comes out of the wolf’s belly]

Little Red Riding Hood: Ah, how frightened I have been! How dark it was inside the wolf.

Little Red Riding Hood: Thank you for saving us!

[Scene changes to the end]

Act 2 B:       

[Little Red Riding Hood understands what the Wolf’s intentions are bad]

Little Red Riding Hood: You make a point but what is it to you if look around or not?

Wolf: Ummmmm.....

Little Red Riding Hood: You just wanted to distract me so that you could eat my grandmother and me!

Wolf: I'm screwed!

Little Red Riding Hood: Why you little.....

Little Red Riding Hood: I’m going to kill you!

Wolf: Uh oh!

Hunter: [Enters the scene holding a gun]

Hunter: Do we have a problem here?

Little Red Riding Hood: Yes we do! This beast intended to eat my grandma and I!

Hunter: Don't worry I'll take care of this scoundrel!

Little Red Riding Hood: You better!

Wolf: [thinks to himself] Bye Bye Life!

Little Red Riding Hood: Finish Him!

Hunter: As you say miss!

Wolf: Gulp!

Hunter: [Gun fires]

Wolf: [Lies down dead and then disappears]

Little Red Riding Hood: He deserved that.

Hunter: He probably did.

[Scene changes to the end]

I like how you put kind of a nice spin to a classic story
