This week we are looking at the animation ‘The dreamgiver’ Click on the link to access the animation.
Look at the clip and play it from beginning to end.
Questions: Who is he? Where has he come from? Are there more of them or just him? Is he happy/good?
Next, play the beginning of the clip again, pausing at 0:49 with the image of the Dreamgiver standing on the windowsill. Can you note any key visual aspects of the character (his wings/his goggles/his bag etc) using adjectives and descriptive phrases ·
Look at the paragraph describing the Dreamgiver –
Perched on the windowsill on two long, spindly legs, the Dreamgiver checked his notebook. Strapped tightly around his bulbous head, he wore a pair of grey circular goggles through which his tiny eyes peered down upon the sleeping children. He wore a tattered cloth wrapped around his waist; the standard attire for a Dreamgiver who had no need for lavish clothes to impress others. Upon his hunched shoulders and curved spine fluttered a pair of elegant wings, as delicate as lace, yet strong enough to hold his weight mid-air and allow him to swoop quickly and gracefully through the night sky. In one hand he grasped a wooden staff whilst in the other he clutched a hessian bag which contained his magical dream eggs.
Can you find the descriptive language and expanded noun phrases? Can you now write sentences describing the Dreamgiver’s physical appearance.
