Quickly show negative SOME KIND OF SIGNAL THAT STARTS THE REWIND (a sound? a gong? a #CHOOSEKIND SIGN) Rewind Quickly show positive Sliding Doors IDEAS INCLUSION: Not allowing someone into a game (in classroom) TEAMWORK: UPSTANDING: intervening in bullying Cheating... Huang and Martey appear on shoulders as #choosekind and #poordecisions... OR with other keywords representing the choice kids are/aren't making in each skit

2.1.2. Todo Jobs

2.1.3. other ideas... Notes to my Future Self Show Future Jobs wrinkly old versions of self reading the letters Show the consequences of choices Diary or Precept coming to life acting out flashbacks on top of diary entry Time machine...

2.2. 5-237: Doodling Party Scene

2.2.1. Someone brings someone into the party Kid doodles a party scene and leaves it on the rug -- a kid steps on it and realizes Kids can jump into the party People toss in their favorite things Some kids come to the party and get left out of: dancing, talking with each other, they wind up all alone. Kids looking at the party doodle see kids left out in the background of the drawings. They dive in to help get them involved. Teachers are boring - ALL kids are doodling... kids fall into the party kid hand comes out of the party 3 points where kids are left out at the party Everyone is with their own friends Not in the selfie with friends Someone with Anxiety (REPRESENTED BY A BOX AROUND THEIR BODY) - steps out of comfort zone to feel better Can't do the dance... How do they get brought into the party? RECORD SCRATCH Left out person walks into class (like he forgot his lunchbox OR he can't find the whole 5th grade, goes to bathroom, comes back and everyone gone), sees a party drawing and jumps in...

2.3.1. Opening/Storytelling Framework -- the whole thing is a story being read by Old Emile to an IK or PreK or K kid -- "Why is TAOTS so famous", "this is a true story of POST PRODUCTION EFFECT: Cartoonize moments with narration & speech bubbles Narration from the K teacher fills in the blanks in the story (could be speech bubbles on her as well) Shoot this last

2.3.2. 2 forces in TAOTS: 5th Grade Secret Kindness Agents vs. Greedy Teachers trying to hold onto students forever Student use superpowers to perform secret acts of kindness. Each act of kindness leaves the recipient with a chunk of pink puzzle... What's the Agents' uniform or badge? - Black glasses and hoodies (Double Agents) Showing respect and thanks to adults (Ivan, Guards) Able Kids... Stop motion: Rolling "Brenny Ball" giving hugs Missing snack, one appears... Special effects Teachers are secretly planning to keep students at TAOTS. Each act of sabotage locks kids into TAOTS. Teachers wear villain costumes Sinister teachers agents have powers to sabotage (Sportella would be the overloard) Teacher uses Time Stone or Groundhogs Day (Trinkle) Turn them into Bitmoji's and stick them in the smartboard (Rathan) Teachers use magic to make them into Kindergarteners again... (Tisdall) Kids get put to sleep by GUM at their desks (Ramsay) SURPRISE: Kindness Agents pose as Mr, Rathan on shoulders of 2 other kids attends meeting the teachers reporting their progress to Sportella, Tisdall and Grancaric. Kids pretend to be teachers -- stacked up kids They plan to Kill them with acts of Kindness

2.3.3. Ending: Bits of kindness pull everyone together onto the playground and become a big heart that says "Be the Change" that blows away the evil of the teachers and then spreads into the wind... The final acts of kindness to the teachers trigger a magnet effect where all of the puzzle chunks start pulling the owners, and everyone in the grade out to the playground. After the teachers see the heart and realize they have to let the kids go, the heart explodes and the pieces fly off into the sky (shoot the pieces coming down and reverse it; shoot everyone looking up) Then they fly off to the next agents of kindness - Spread Kind "It's The TAOTS Way" Old Brendan is standing by the door and says "ha ha ha, those were the good old days... now excuse me, here are the credits" "Good night." Shoot it on green screen and superimpose it on the wall -- then the pieces can fly off from there/and or come together...

2.3.4. Jobs/Todo Make the heart make soundtrack/garageband with lyrics about Secret Agents of Change and plot points I'm just looking outside the door... with the iPad and the music is for the credits Develop the acts of kindness Develop the teacher acts of sabotage Narration: Paul Revere-style by Beastie Boys What's the name of this story???
