Remember that you cannot have a good animation without a good story. The story comes first. When we storyboard (you will need this rubric) we start with the key frames (feel free to use this template). After your storyboard is complete, it is time to write the script. The script can be written on lined paper or on the back side of the storyboard.
If you would like a little more help in getting started check out The Stop Motion Classroom and The National Film Board of Canada's Stop-Motion Animation Studio.
This will be the on-line binder for the TGJ2OI class.
