The story ladder and story frieze represent ways in which children might begin to develop narratives, normally by using the story structure of establishing a character and/or place, creating a problem for the character, developing the problem, and then seeking out resolution. Trevor’s Huge Adventure demonstrates this and finds a witty resolution, which relates closely to the theme of the story – aspiration and ambition, and its possible consequences. This structure can vary, of course – the children’s sandwich narrative continues to build its problems, but when such visual narrative building is allied to a revelation of a theme, it can prove an important teaching, learning and creative process.
Core Plots ANIMATED FILM SCRIPTS HAVE A GREAT DEAL IN COMMON WITH LIVE ACTION WORK AND USE MANY OF THE SAME APPROACHES THAT CHARACTERISE THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIVE ACTION SCREENPLAYS. This section looks at some of the dynamics of traditional scriptwriting and applies them to animation.

Suspense is created by how the story might be resolved, but employs aspects of rivalry and forbidden love as the man and woman conduct their ‘starcrossed’ romance. The narrative resists any notion of discovery, leaving the couple’s fates unresolved. Crucially, this kind of incident- or event-led narrative is highly suitable to the animated short form – it is the concentration on the narrative and aesthetic details that constitute the story. The chance encounter between the man and the woman is the inciting incident to an atmospheric noir-like plot, in which the engagement with the audience is effectively about the suggestion of underlying intrigue, threat and passion.
