Never Talk To Strangers
I created the Scratch animation Never Talk To Stranger as my response to a project to create an interactive ethical story. An ethical story is a story where a character is faced with a decision were he or she must choose between right and wrong. If the character makes the right decision he or she gets a reward and if the character makes the wrong decision they get punished.
My story is about a boy who is playing with his friends in the school yard. Then his friends leave the yard, leaving him alone. When he is alone a man approaches him and asks if he wants candy. If the says yes the boy gets abducted and taken to the mans house were he barley escapes him. If the boy says no he runs away and he tells his mom a man is chasing him. Then the mom calls to police and the man gets arrested. For helping the police the boy gets a 500 dollar reward.
My story was inspired by a Aesop Fable I found in this link. http://www.umass.edu/aesop/content.php?n=33&i=1
In this story a sheep is deceived by wolf and the sheep gets eaten. This story is related to my story because both storeys teach you never to talk or interact with someone you don’t know even if they seem kind.
I think I was successful in creating my story because I carefully followed all of the requirements and I worked really hard at creating the story. It took my time instead of rushing and I made sure many times I followed all requirements. I made sure there was an ethical decision with 2 choices and 2 outcomes. I also made sure each outcome was 3 minutes long. I am also very proud in my work because I think the story flows quite well and I think it is a fun and educational video that teaches a very important lesson. Overall I feel like I was very successful in making my animation.
