[00:12.12]Creating a comic strip
[00:15.78]A robbery ...
[00:18.73]an escape from the zoo...
[00:22.57]an exciting and dangerous journey ...
[00:30.69]The first thing to do when creating a comic strip is to think of a plot.
[00:38.14]It needs to be funny or dramatic with an exciting finish.
[00:44.70]It should be full of action to keep the reader interested.
[00:50.26]The story needs to move fast,and something new must happen in each picture.
[00:58.51]The characters need strong personalities which will come across in the pictures
[01:06.56]You can tell what the characters above are like just from looking at them
[01:13.33]Drawing the strip
[01:17.17]Here you can see how the script (you can only see the first part)
[01:24.53]was made into a finished comic strip.
[01:29.29]It was drawn using a dip pen with a special nib.
[01:34.93]The Test-tube Affair
[01:39.19]A:Those stupid kidnappers can"t tie knots.I"ve been lucky.
[01:47.96]B:Why do we always get the boring jobs?
[01:54.02]C:Shut up and listen!
[01:57.55]Radio:Police are still searching for the kidnappers of Terry Test-tube,
[02:05.49]son of Professor Test-tube,the famous scientist.
[02:12.26]Today the Professor made an appeal
[02:17.22]saying that he would give the kidnappers his new wonder invention
[02:24.88]if they would return his son.
[02:28.92]A:This will fool those two idiots! (Crash!)
[02:35.87]A:This is my only chance.
[02:40.13](Meanwhile,back at police headquarters) (Brrring Brrring)
[02:51.28]E:Chief?We"ve got some news.
[02:56.25]The helicopter is searching green island...
[03:11.40]Some frames can be left without borders to add variety.
[03:18.95]The story is mainly told in the pictures
[03:24.23]but there are bubbles for speech and thoughts.
[03:29.87]A line of text at the top can explain changes of scene or time.
[03:37.60]Sound effects add excitement to the pictures.
[03:43.56]Frame sizes are varied to make the strip more interesting.
[03:50.40]Scenery can make the strip come to life.

[07:02.37]Can you smell anything from the outside air?
[07:08.62]Rita:Oh,yes,there"s a strong smell of fish.
[07:15.28]I can smell fish most of the time,and I can smell the sea.
[07:23.45]I think I"m quiet near the sea.
[07:27.61]Police:Good.Now,there"s a big plastic factory on the island.
[07:35.94]There"s a lot of strong chemical smells from that factory.
[07:42.79]Have you smelled anything like that?
[07:47.44]Rita:Yes,just a bit,not often though.I must stop now.

[10:01.86]When we say sentences,we normally stress important words
[10:15.86]We do not stress unimportant words
[10:33.26]We usually put a little more stress on the last important word in the sentence.
[10:42.22]Inspector:How did you escape?
[10:45.98]Terry:I was lucky.
[10:49.04]The kidnappers couldn"t tie knots.So I freed myself from the rope.

[11:01.55]Terry:I tied the rope across the floor of the room.
[11:12.37]Inspector:I want to speak to the chief.

[11:31.88]We think it belongs to the professor"s son.
[11:44.52]The Fox and the Crow Early one morning,a crow was sitting in a tall tree.
[11:54.87]She was holding a big piece of meat in her mouth.
[12:00.93]She thought it would be a nice breakfast for her baby.
[12:07.30]An old fox was looking for some food.
[12:13.36]He saw the crow with the meat.
[12:17.49]He really wanted to eat the meat himself.
[12:23.05]He thought very hard about how he could take it from the crow.
[12:31.41]The fox made a plan.
[12:35.17]He could not climb the tree so he would have to make the crow drop the meat.
[12:44.53]He spoke to the crow very politely
[12:49.10]and asked how she was and how her baby was
[12:56.25]The fox then told the crow that she had a beautiful voice
[13:04.12]and that he would like to hear her sing.
[13:09.68]The crow was happy and thought that the fox was very kind.
[13:17.54]So she decided to sing a song for him.
[13:23.19]She opened her mouth and the fox"s plan worked.
[13:30.03]The meat fell down into his mouth.
