Project Main Details

Think Before You Believe 
This is a personal project that I am creating for my senior thesis animation. The intent of this piece is to re-educate the public on media spin. The aim is to encourage the public to seek outside sources for information, instead of completely relying on conglomerate controlled media, that has an obvious agenda. I intend to create empathy for the main character through this narrative so that the viewer can relate to the character (the voice over). In the first half of the script as the tension builds I would like the character to sound increasingly more frustrated until it seems they have had enough. Then after the climax (after this line:"And they have told me, to destroy anyone that gets on our way.") the tone shifts to be more hopeful and encouraging the change that is brought up. Also, when there is a coma pause slightly, while still sounding fluid to allow for post editing.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
I have realized something lately,

Everything I believe, has been shaped by the stories around me,

These stories have taught me what to think,

How to act

And what to be afraid of.

They have told me, to fight for my country,

They have told me, to hate those with different beliefs,

They have told me, that my family is doomed to economic destruction,

They have told me, that big businesses are ruining my lively hood,

And they have told me, to destroy anyone that gets on our way. (climax/tone shift here, leave some time between here for pause)

If only I had realized to think for myself,

I would have noticed that I am not always given the entire story,

And I would be able to understand the difference between reality and when I’m being sold something,

I would also have the will to believe that no matter how bad things seem,

It can be turned around or transformed into something good.
