I know. 05:59 Alex: Come on Oscar, our ride’s here. 06:52 Monster: Long howling moan British animator and illustrator Julia Pott created a simple script that permitted her to use animation to externalize bubbling internal emotional reactions in her animated film Belly (2011). 33 develops a script in response to a brief or an idea, using supporting developmental tools and processes such as a storyboard, sketches, character designs, and animatics.

In order to use animation as a storytelling vehicle, creators must decide where the root of content is to be found. A script is one starting point, but it is equally possible for some animated productions to exist without a script, the director instead preferring to use the storyboard as a visual scripting device, especially where there is no fixed dialogue or narration attached to a particular shot. Although animation shares some of the narrative conventions of liveaction film, such as the composition of scenes or the structuring of shots to tell stories or explain ideas, writing for animation requires some particular considerations that emerge out of the distinctive nature of the form itself.

Approaches to scriptwriting Unless a specific brief has been set requiring an answer, such as an advertising campaign promoting a particular product or service, the job of the scriptwriter is first to seek inspiration for the story. This can come from a rich variety of sources, including a writer’s own experience, observations, and ideologies, or from responding to facets of the experiences of others. These could include recollections, interpretations, dreams, or fantasies. Such starting points are known as the “premise” or “inciting incident” for a story, acting as a driving motivation for the production as a whole to be made.
