My dad and a friend suffer from it – I have quite a good understanding of it
Something people may not think of as a large limitation
A lot of people simply think of it as a condition where ‘you just can’t spell’
I wanted to make people more aware of how awful it is and how it can make people feel anxious over the smallest of things
Even though I was - and still am - unsure of the actual narrative structure of my piece; I completed Ohler’s exercise to see how the traditional approach would be.
In doing this, I’m fairly certain that the beginning part of my animation will contain most of this story.
Here I made a brief map of what will happen in the story.
It was good to do this because it pulls everything together in a clear and simpler way.
The difficult thing with my story
is that, for my dad, there never
really was a resolution.
Therefore I’ve made the
resolution the progress
that has been made:
Colours: muted inside the classroom except for red lines on the paper he has to write and read from.
Window: there would be a window indicating two worlds. Hate school (limitations) loves the outdoors (freedom).
Opposing feelings/attitudes towards a character/object/action
I hope to achieve this subtly through (perhaps) not disclosing that the main character suffers from dyslexia. Therefore judgement might occur upon the character, that leaves the viewer unsure, until the condition is revealed.
I may also be able to achieve this if I can make the viewer feel uncomfortable towards the character’s/my dad’s unease and struggles; however still (hopefully) find the animation engaging. Liking it, but also disliking it.
Revealing the character’s inner state
In the middle of my animation I hope to show the audience visual representations – through the boy’s eyes.
I also want to have a scene where the boy and people around him have been physically transformed; to symbolise how he feels.
