Creating a Pixar Short

Your assignment is to write your own pixar short, like the

ones we watched in class. You will need to utilize the material

youve learned in class about grammar and formatting including:

proper punctuation, avoiding run-on sentences, and following

proper paragraph structure. Using planning sheets you will plan an

entire short and plot out the events on a plot diagram explaining

the exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and

denouement. You will have at least one person in the class edit your

assignment using the peer editing sheet provided.

After youve planned your short you will write and animate

one detailed scene. In 3-5 well structured paragraphs you will write

the scene of your short and animate it using one of these two

Once it is animated you will print your animation and hand in all

components of the assignment. This will include:

1. A detailed plot diagram modelled after the example provided, outlining

your entire story.
2. A small story map, similar to the example above.
3. A working-draft and final copy of 3-5 detailed paragraphs telling one
scene of your story.
4. A storyboard animation of your one scene
5. Two completed editing and Proofreading checklist with your first draft.
