Our Inanimate Alice iPad Challenge

As we talked about in class on Friday, we are going to be using iPads this week to create a digital comic for the next chapter of Inanimate Alice. We are going to use an app called Comic Life, so if any of you can look at it before Wednesday, that would be great!

In preparation for this you need to storyboard the comic you would like to create. This means you need to decide on the story you will tell, the images you will need to tell the story, and any writing that you want to accompany the images (keep this to a minimum). We will take photographs for the images on Wednesday, or you can use any from the bank of photos already stored on the iPad. This weekend can you think about your story, so that on Monday afternoon we can storyboard in the pairs we will be working in.

Episode 5 of Inanimate Alice takes place in Hong Kong, the home city of her mother, Ming. Lots of her mother’s family live there, including lots of cousins – Alice does not really like them. Hong Kong is famous for its huge skyscrapers all crammed together – check it out on Google images – so you will need to include these in your comic images. Hong Kong is also famous for having a horse racing course right in the middle of the city. Alice, who is now 15 years old, has gone there with her parents, but has mysteriously become separated from them not long after arriving. Where are her parents? Have they been followed to Hong Kong from Moscow? What advice does Brad give her? How does the problem resolve itself? Where will they be heading to at the end of the episode?

Remember to include events that follow the pattern of the other episodes, and I look forward to hearing your ideas on Monday. Have a good weekend!

Whilst we were at the Shakespeare play, there was a marvellous audience waiting for us. Everyone said that our play was EXCEPTIONAL. Next year we hope to give the audience a bigger thrill.

Whilst I was at the amusement park, I saw a new ride which was all grimy. Before I went on it, I saw a girl cower in fear because of the same ride. She had the ability to cry.

There were a lot of gaps in between the snooker tables. I had cowered under the table. “You are an agile person “, pleaded John.

When I went to see the Olympic torch, the roads were congested. Jubilant, everyone was waiting for it to arrive. Finally it arrived. People were beaming like they had won the lottery!

My favourite sport is rounders. I like rounders because you can run alot and it is challenging. You also have to try and hit the ball with the rounders bat. It is better if you hit it really far so you can get a full rounder. Whichever team gets the most full rounders wins. Sometimes when you are running people can get you out by getting the ball and putting it on the cone, or by a person fielding throwing the ball to the bowler so you have to stop at one cone. If you don’t you are out.
