Story + Storyboard / Mind Map
Alright, let's start.
In order to create any sort of logical visuals on a timeline you need to put your thoughts on paper. Or on a digital equivalent. This storyboard will be then turned into an animatic, a storyboard on a timeline (read more about storyboards and animatics here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storyboard) and later we're going to work it to be as much of an animated piece as possible.
If your piece is interactive, you will need to use some kind of mind map (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_map) combined with a storyboard to present your thoughts to the rest of us.
I put the due date to the 18th for this, but in case there's issues it's not like the Terminator will come and get you if you have hard time producing this, so just let me know if this feels bad. :-)
Also the storyboard doesn't need to be final. Some of you might still be learning what is possible with the tools we have and when you have an idea, do tell me, I can help figuring it out. If you have a course in tandem that could benefit from this course, it's ok to do work that is beneficial for both courses on my behalf.
Here's a handy tutorial video I made about storyboarding in it's simplest form:
