What You Will Learn

You will learn there are many many ways we can say the same thing. In this brainstorming exercise you will generate a list of phrases, puns, idioms, and word play which may apply to a story like this, in a setting like this, with a character like this.

Why This is Important

The word play your characters use in voice-overs can be the most entertaining part of your animation. We'll take any puns, idioms, or clever word combinations as dialogue options for your movie. The plot of our story keeps our audience's mind engaged. Animation keeps their eyes fixed to the action. But most important is word play, which keeps their ears busy with unbelievably clever and inventive dialogue.
This list will incubate and hatch even more ideas when we revisit it in later lessons.
