Inanimate Alice Episode 5

Room 13 have been watching Inanimate Alice and exploring digital storytelling. In small groups we then created our own Episode 5 using PowerPoint (PPT). We found PPT easy to use with good animations but hard to convert for the internet. We managed to capture some of our stories using Jing but lost some of the sound affects. 

Today we Skyped one of the authors, Kate Pullinger. Some question we asked her are:
  • Where did the idea for inanimate Alice come from? 
  • Who inspired the names of the characters? 
  • Why do you never show the faces of the characters? 
  • What is Brad supposed to represent?
  • Has inanimate Alice been recognised internationally? 
  • Will there be new main characters in the next episode? 
  • What has been the most exciting part of creating this story?
  • What has been the hardest part of creating inanimate Alice? 
  • What advice would you give for telling a good story?
  • When will the next episode - (5) come out?

  1. That's pretty impressive. How fabulous that you were able to talk to an author directly.
