‘Inanimate Alice’ tells the story of Alice, a young girl growing up in the first half of the 21st century, and her imaginary digital friend, Brad.
Over ten episodes, each a self contained story, we see Alice grow from an eight year old living with her parents in a remote region of Northern China to a talented mid-twenties animator and designer with the biggest games company in the world.
Episode 4 synopsis:
As we left Moscow on that plane I had no idea where we were going. It turns out my Mum and Dad had no idea either. We moved around. We stayed with friends. It took a while but finally we landed on our feet.
“And now I am going to die!”
Attempting to impress my friends on the way home from school, I climb a rickety staircase outside an abandoned factory.
When it collapses beneath me, I hang on by my fingernails and haul myself up onto a ledge. But then I get stuck. There’s no way down. And I can’t go up. The only way out is through the scary factory, half-demolished and very dangerous. Can you help me? Can you find the way out?
My friends (I have friends now – yeah!!) love the stories I create; they want to tell their own, so I came up with a simple little tool to help them. It’s called iStori.es – all you have to do is load up your photos, add some words, music and sound effects and BOOM! you have your own interactive story….in minutes.
If you’re a student, go tell your teacher to check out http://www.iStori.es – it’s very educational! Hehe…
See you in Hometown, Episode 4 on http://www.inanimatealice.com.
Yours – Alice
