Scratch animation unit 3 project 21ngj

This is an alteration to the classic cinderella tale. It was originally a project for my tech class. This unit focuses on the moral choices characters makes in stories or in real life and how to animate it. It was frustrating trying to create it but the end result came out to be pretty nice. So in the story, the character cinder finds herself talking to a cat, lucifer, the cat tells her to leave since she is suffering a lot working for her step- sisters. The decision she has to make is whether she stays or not.

This is the script for the animation:

Act One:
Characters:
Cinderella (Cinder)
Prince Charming (Jack)
Fairy godmother (Annie)
Step-mother (Sasha)
Step-Daughter #1 (Anastina)
Step- Daughter #2 (Ashley)
Mice #1 (gus)
Mice #2 ( Sebastin)
Mice #3 (Minny)
Cat (Lucifer)

Setting:
Old house
Nice Mansion
Old house backyard

Script:
Anastina: [Runs frantically around the screen] Cinder! Ashley and my clothes are not cleaned yet! CINDER!
Ashley: [Runs frantically around the screen] Cinder where is my perfume?! CINDER! [Runs into Anastina]
Anastina and Ashley: OH MY GOD! CINDER! [Runs to the right stage]
Cinder: [Comes in from the left stage] I’m coming! I… I’m coming!
Cinder: [Murmurs to herself] 19 and still stuck here.
Sasha: CINDER! Do your job faster, if my beautiful daughters don’t get what they need, they will be sad and you will need to live in the attic again!
Cinder: I am, Sasha! [Murmurs to herself] I wouldn’t have to if they actually knew anything…
Sasha: What was that?
Cinder: N… nothing.
Ashley and Anastina: CINDER!
Cinder: Coming! [Runs off stage to the right stage]

Ashley: [walks in from the left stage] Where is mother?
Anastina: [Walks in from the left stage] CINDER!
Cinder: Y...yes?
Anastina: Where is our mother?
Cinder: I don’t know, she’s probably in her room with Lucifer.
Ashley: Well, go call her, then.
Anastina: Cinder, what does it take to make you smart?
Cinder: Yes, stepsisters.
Ashley: What was that?
Cinder: [Sigh] Yes, gorgeous stepsister and beautiful stepsister.
Anastina: There you go.
Cinder: [Walk off to the right stage] Why… am…i ….still… here

Cinder: [Walk on left stage] Your daughters need you down stairs, Sasha.
Sasha: You haven’t fed Lucifer yet, Cinder.
Cinder: I will feed him right now.
Sasha: Now what did you need?
Cinder: Ashley and Anastina needs you downstairs.
Sasha: Okay [Walks to the left stage]

Cinder: [Walks toward the center] Come on Lucifer! Come on!
Lucifer: Meow! Cinder, why are you even still here, Sasha is clearly using you to do chores.
Cinder: I know…..
Lucifer: Cinder! Just leave already, it’s for your own good!
Cinder: I don’t think Sasha can do any of these chores she is making me do…
Lucifer: [Sighs] Well you did the chores ever since you were 9 yrs old, I think she can pick up a few ideas.
Cinder: Well she still needs my help.
Lucifer: [Sighs] Why did I even try?

Moral decision:
Cinder is compassionate and needs to decide whether she will stay and help like the girl Sasha wants her to be or will she listen to Lucifer and leave to create a new life for herself and even meet the prince?
Act 2a:

Sasha: Ashley! Anastina! We just received a letter from the royal palace!
Ashley: What does it say mother!?
Sasha: It says we are invited to go to the royal mansion hosted by Prince Jack!
Anastina and Ashley: Ahhhhh!! Oh my god!
Ashley: Wait, when is the ball?
Sasha: In 3 days!
Anastina and Ashley: Ahhhhh!!
Sasha: Girls, you must get ready! Ashley! Call the dressmaker!

[cinder and Lucifer walk on from the left stage]

Cinder: Sasha, can i come?
Sasha: Sure……. When you complete you chore……..
Cinder: What do i need to do?
Sasha: Clean the floors of the basement, clean the kitchen, clean the my room, clean the girls’ room, clean your room. This house should be spotless by the end of your chores.
Cinder: I can’t do that before the ball happens! Can I at least have my own dress?
Sasha: Of course not, if you want to go you will need to get your own dress!
Cinder: That is not fair! I do all the chores and I don’t even get a dress?
Sasha: Life isn’t fair Cinder!
Ashley: Okay….. Um i think mother and Cinder needs to take a breather and calm down. Don’t you think that is right Anastina?
Anatina: Um…. yea,,,,, Ashley why don’t you take Mother on a walk, i will stay with Cinder.

[Ashley and Sasha walk off to the right stage, Cinder and Anastina stay behind]

Cinder: I don’t think i can that Sasha anymore…..
Anastina: Well, as her daughter, i never saw her flaws until just now,
Cinder: [signs] Where’s lucifer?

[Lucifer walks in on the left stage]

Lucifer: What did i tell you, cinder? Leave already!
Anastina: Wait, lucifer can talk?
Lucifer: I always could talk, you guys were just too busy talking about the prince and your clothes to realize.
Cinder: Yea [2 seconds of silence between the three] Anyway, Lucifer what should i do? Leaving might do me some good but, i have no one out there, no one to take care of……
Lucifer: Fine! If you want to leave and suffer the wrath of Saha, do it. But if you don’t leave after 2 years, i don’t know what kind of person you are.
Anastina: After 2 years, i will kick you out. [Laughs]
Cinder: [Laughs] Fine whatever….. But the ball, i still can’t go.
Anastina: Okay, I will sacrifice this chance to see the prince, I will stay behind…..
Lucifer: YOU WILL? Oh my gosh, Anastina, i have misjudged you!
Anastina: Yea, everyone does. Okay, now i need to convince mother to not let me go and you need to do the chores, I will help you when i am done with mother.
Cinder: Thanks, Anastina. I am glad you are not like sasha.

Annie: Nevermind…. So, what is your wish?
Cinder: I wish Anastina, Lucifer, and I may go to the ball without Sasha…..
Annie: Since you are so kind and so nice, I will grant your wish and i will give you dresses. But since lucifer is a cat and can not go to the ball, i will transform Lucifer into a handsome gentlemen who will be the partner for Anastina.
Anastina: Oh, I want to see what he looks like as a human! If he is handsome, can we keep him as a human?
Lucifer: What? Anastina! Okay maybe….
