A fun, quick look at
Story Structure

Setting
The Setting of the story tells WHERE and
WHEN the story takes place.
CHARACTERS
Each story has a hero (protagonist) and a villain (anatagonist). Supporting characters
flesh out the story either for or against the
hero.
the CLIMAX
What is the
element of "CONFLICT"
in the story?
The Climax occurs when the CONFLICT is resolved. It is the TURNING POINT of the story where either the hero or the antagonist wins.

The Exposition describes the background, circumstances and how the character got to be in the situation. It is called the BACKSTORY
The EXPOSITION
This is a fairy tale
taking place in the world of imagination

from Cool Mouse
Media (in partnership with Godmother Productions)
The Conflict is the problem that occurs between the hero and something or someone in opposition. The "movement" towards a solution is what drives the narrative forward, and is what occupies most of the protagonist's time
Cinderella is so full of cinders!

we do not like her!
Cinderella is not treated well in her home by her Evil Stepmother and sisters
1) Mind map first
2) Group your thoughts
3) Draw a storyboard on PAPER
4) THEN create slides in Prezi
TA-DAAAAH!!!!
Interior & Exterior
Settings
Other scenes also take place inside the buildings and in other areas of the environment.
Step Mother's House
The Crop Field
The Castle Ball Room
She turns the mice into
white horses
She turns the pumpkin
into a carriage
She turns the lizard

I love this girl! Who is she?
I must FIND and
marry her!
Evil Step-Sisters - Fools + Villains
Archetypical references provide the basic rules of storytelling. As your own stories evolve, learn to simplify. Building a story touches on all 7 points.

Answer these Questions FIRST:
1) Why am I doing this project?
2) what is my objective?
3) who is my audience?
4) is the media platform appropriate?

Thank you!

4 KINDS of CONFLICTS


1) us against others (ex. Cinderella vs StepMother)
2) us against ourselves (doubt, fear)
3) us against nature (hurricane, flood)
4) us against society
Don't FORGET!
(Single slide + groupings in Prezi)
Note: I used an invisible frame
to surround the Fairy Godmother instead of a circle or square sha
Note:
Please divide your story ideas into CLEAR sequential chunks. Mindmap and /or storyboard
your ideas first. We will do this in-class.
