Creating a Story

Part of our AI-bility project is storytelling. We want to create different stories for young children that cover various artificial intelligence topics.

Creating a new story usually starts with deciding on a specific AI concept and a spontaneous idea for a storyline. I conduct proficient research about the selected AI concept, before outlining the first draft.

I first write down the overall storyline and then create a table where I distribute the different scenes into cells for a better structure.

Afterwards, I create the future scenes in the cells. I add snippets of pictures from the internet to visualize the children and their actions, as well as the scenery. I also add speech bubbles and narration texts.

Lastly, I add explanatory text under the scenes in the cells to explain in detail what happens in the scene. This approach helps to detail the scene I have in mind onto paper, giving another reference point for drawing the stories.

With Alessia’s great drawing skills, the final product gets created and we all get to read a new story.
