Unit 6: Commission
The Treatment
 The Animation starts with an African village filed with strawhuts. In the centre of the village there is a stone fireplace whichhas just been put out for the night and still emits smoke. Thetime of the day is the evening when the sun is about to set, thetime when the African savannah looks its best and brings outits natural beauty. The dominant colours are earth colours likebrown and gold which bring out the sand and the dry terrain. The bright sun light creates elongated dark shadows and makesthe tree silhouettes in the horizon stand out in front of thered/orange sky. The camera zooms in the inside of the furthest hut. Illuminatedby a source light coming from an opening of the hut’s roof, laysa thick book on a wooden log. Its cover is made out of dryleaves, bamboo and handmade paper from banana fibres. Thebook opens slowly and reveals a whole African world made outof paper. As a pop up book, it unfolds into a small village withpaper figures of natives moving like marionettes. They are alldoing their everyday activities like preparing food, cleaning upand taking care of their children. The camera zooms into amother figure sitting on a bench who sings a lullaby to herbaby. The page then turns and unfolds into the same mother againbut in a bigger size. This time, the page is filled with tiny papermosquitoes which are attached with string and hover aroundthe mother’s baby. The book turns page again and this timeshows a monstrous mosquito (magnified) which flies onto thebaby’s shoulder and stings it. The mosquito is obviouslyinfected with the parasite and passes it on to whoever it stings. The paper model of the baby’s skin shows the worm-lookingplasmodium parasites moving from the mosquito’s proboscis
 
into the baby’s bloodstream. The page turns and this timeshowing the inside of the baby’s body. The parasites move tothe baby’s liver where they feed themselves on and reproduce.Millions of parasites are being emitted to the body and returnto the bloodstream where they invade the red blood cells,multiply from them and destroy them. The blood cells aremoving mechanically into the blood stream which is shown likea tunnel merging into the book itself. The cycle continues asthe mosquitoes move to the rest of the natives spreading thedisease of ‘malaria’. The page turns again showing the baby sick with a hightemperature and the mother feeling desperate for her child’sstate. The colours of this page are now dull representing thesituation. But there is a solution to the problem: A precautionthat could have been taken before the baby got infected andthat would have kept it healthy. The book turns back to the first page where the mother wastrying to get her baby to sleep. An extra page attached to theprevious one opens out with a paper figure of a doctor holdinga vaccine. The page turns again to where the mosquito stungthe baby, but unfolds upwards showing the same imagewithout the insect this time. The doctor injects the baby andinserts a small portion of the parasite into its body. Thelymphocytes then immediately produce antibodies whichunleash themselves from the lymphocyte’s tips and attack theparasites by attaching themselves to their tips. The antibodies’tips (paratopes) attach with precision onto the parasites’ tips(epitopes) like a lock and key. After the ‘enemyhas beenrecognised by the antibodies the phagocyte cells are called inand devour the parasites, protecting the baby from thethreatening foreign body. The baby now, packed with antibodies that already recognisethe malaria parasite will be ready to tackle it the next time itenters the body. So returning to the sting part page, themosquito does infect the baby but this time the already
 
existing antibodies which were produced from the injection dealwith the parasites directly and keep the baby safe. So nowreturning to the last page, the gloomy atmosphere now getspacked with light and colour, which symbolise the rebirth of hope for the baby. The book closes. THE END 
The Step Outline
 The sun is about to set in an African village revealing thebeauty of the savannah.Inside a hut lays a chunky book made of raw materials andopens wide as a pop up book. It depicts a village again, madout of paper and point out a mother on a bench singing alullaby to her baby.But this touching scene is not as innocent as it looks. The babyis in threat, being stung by an infected mosquito with malaria. The parasite moves to the liver where I multiplies and thenagain into the bloodstream where it destroys red blood cells,leaving the child very sick.But still, this terrible incident could have been avoided with thehelp of injections, which carry a small part of the parasite andintroduce the body to them beforehand, which leads to theproduction of antibodies. The already produced antibodies arenow ready to fight the enemy the next time it invades thebody.Being stung again the parasites are attacked by the‘acknowledged’ antibodies as they attach on them like keys
