Project Main Details

Marcos Medina 30 year old father 
We are working on a series of short (2-5 minute) educational animations for parents. These animations are fun, entertaining, but also meant to serve as parenting resources.

Marcos Medina is in his early 30's. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Maria, his daughter, Vanessa (6 years), and his mother-in-law, Lupe. His parents immigrated to the US from Mexico (DF), and he was born and raised in Southern California. Marcos speaks perfect English, but occasionally will throw in a Spanish line. Marcos is very traditional, expecting Maria to take on most of the housework in addition to her retail job, while he works as a carpenter/handyman. He is a very good father and is commited to Vanessa's education.

In this script, Marcos and Maria try to come up with a plan to get Vanessa reading at her grade level.

Script Details

Please read Marcos lines. 
Please read Marcos's lines:

Marcos: What?

Maria: (closes her book, puts it down to user’s left) I'm worried about Vanessa. Her teacher says she doesn't want to learn to read--

Marcos: Vanessa's sharp as a tack -- she’ll love reading once she learns.

Maria: I know but she's not going to learn if it’s just us reading to her and her never reading to us.

Marcos: Maria, mi amor, no seas tan preocupada. (He puts down the TV remote on his side of the bed and touches her forehead.) You're getting worry lines.

Maria (swats his hand away, takes of her reading glasses puts them on bed to user’s left, and looks exasperated but amused) I'm serious! We need to make a plan.

Marcos: So, make a plan.

Maria: What do you mean?

Marcos: Well, you could make a chart where she gets a sticker every day for reading-

Maria: I know -- (Above her head the same scenario is visualized as she speaks, the idea is the same but more sparkly and colorful.) I could create a chart to help her visualize her progress. Then every time she reads 15 minutes, I could, give her ...a sticker!

(Maria looks at Marcos who is staring at her not sure exactly what to say.)

Maria: What? You have a better idea?

(Marcos opens his mouth, then shuts it.)

Marcos: No, mine wasn't nearly as (glances at her sparkly star strewn chart) um, brilliant.
