AYAYAYAYYAYYA I am so excited to announce I am doing a summer AGMV! (American Girl movie!) It’s still a stop motion, but just a really long one.
To know what I’m talking about, check out this trailer. I didn’t create it, but it’s a super awesome stop motion done by a pretty amazing AGTuber.
SO! Back to my point, I am creating something like this. OF COURSE, IT’S DEFIANTLY not 35 minutes long, but I am hoping to create maybe a 10 min stop motion.
AUGH! I just realized I haven’t told you what I am going to be doing! It’s going to be 11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass. It is such an awesome book. It’s sort of older (copyright 2009) but it doesn’t really make a difference. Sooo now I am just taking the book and creating it into a screenplay format! Here’s a sample…..
11 BIRTHDAYS: An AGSM
Leo’s mom: Dark curly hair in a low pony
Amanda’s Mom: blonde with a running suit
Angelina D’Angelo: duck-shaped birthmark, small, swift , old, in a hospital gown
Leo’s Dad: same as him
Amanda’s dad: blonde hair?

Stopped in front of a nursery window
Press her hands against the glass
Looking for the right baby
Show baby Amanda and Leo
Have their moms and dads come down the hall way
Not have them notice Angelina
Leo’s mom: Which one’s yours?
Amanda’s mom: That one. She’s our second. We have a two-year-old at home.
Leo’s mom: She’s precious.
Points to Leo
Leo’s mom: That one’s ours. He’s our first.
Angelina: What have you decided to name them?
Leo’s mom: Leo. After my husbands great-great-grandfather, Leo Fitzpatrick.
Amanda’s mom: That’s funny. We’re naming Amanda after my husbands great great grandmother, Amanda Ellerby.
Dads look at each other
Angelina: Being born of the same day is very special. I believe Amanda and Leo will be best of friends. You will be sure to celebrate the day together every year, no?
Looking at each other, not meaning it
Leo’s mom: oh, yeah
Amanda’s mom: um sure ok
Angelina: A very wise decision. (nod) blessings to you all.
Amanda’s father: that was strange
Leo’s father: Angelina’s an odd one. But I’m sure you know that. She’s lived in willow falls forever.
Both A’s mom and dad shake heads
Amanda’s mom: We just moved to town.
Amanda’s father: My parents used to live her, but my they moved before I was born. We really don’t know anyone.
Amanda’s mom: Well, we’d better get going.
Leo’s mom: us too. Good luck with little Amanda!
Amanda’s mom: Thank you! You too, with Leo.
