Response: The 5 Essential Story Ingredients and 2 others

更新日期:2018年9月22日

I made a animation of Major Major last semester


In this story, A scientist created an Artificial Super Intelligence to save the environment. He did not intend to kill humans while he was programing it, but he knew there was risk. The last straw for him to finally launch the AI was seeing wars happening all over the world. Therefore, the scientist thought if humans are going to kill themselves after all, then the task for his AI to kill humans is acceptable. So he decided to launch it. In order to protect the Earth, the AI functioned as a crime (damage to the environment) predictor and preventer. It surveillanced what people

were doing, and it seems like people are all sinners of the seven deadly sins Therefore, the AI start to hack IoT devices and other systems. In the end, the scientist is the last human on the Earth. He then confesses his crime and the AI kills him.


My only character, the scientist, has three stages of change, from

Likability 1, Competence 8, Commitment to cause 5

to when he lunched the ASI

Likability 1, Competence 8, Commitment to cause 10

at the end he feels regret

Likability 1, Competence 3, Commitment to cause 2

I don't know is my videography skill can convey the changes ti the audiences.

I feel like this animation is a total failure when I read The 5 Essential Story Ingredients, but after more discussions over the first class. I think maybe it I not that bad.

The orientation is the scientist create an ASI to save environment.

The crisis being the scientist debating whether he should launch the system.

The Escalation being ASI started to affect more and more system

The Discovery being launching ASI is wrong because it kills innocent people

The change being scientist regret for what he has done.

But again, I think my storyboards and other aspects could add more emotion to make it a better piece.

Maybe we can count ASI as a character?

Likability 1, Competence 10, Commitment to cause 0

when ASI is surveillancing people

Likability 1, Competence 10, Commitment to cause 5

at the end he feels regret

Likability 1, Competence 10, Commitment to cause 10

I don't know is my videography skill can convey the changes ti the audiences.
