Target Audience
‡ The target audience for this animation is young teenagers, it is more story driven and artistic in order to entertain rather than educate. The narrative is dark accompanied by a setting which becomes darker in the appearance of the flu virus. It is not recommended for a younger audience due to the mild peril.

Unit 6 ± Acts
‡ Act 1 Soft classical intro is played accompanied by a black screen where a sneeze is heard. The screen fades in to a single flu virus which is then breathed in by an unsuspecting victim. The virus travels through the respiratory system heading for the lungs causing the respiratory walls to freeze up as it passes through. The virus makes it way to the cell membrane of a lung cell where it begins to push through. Act 2 As the virus breaks through the music begins to become more powerful as RNA is released menacingly making their way to the nucleus of the cell. The nucleus reads the RNA¶s µdata¶ causing the nucleus to freeze then the RNA makes its way to the cell¶s membrane and is encased within the proteins and lipid Bilayer as it forces its way out. Act 3 The music calms again as the flu virus leaves the frozen dying cell as it heads to another cell within the lungs. As it makes its way more flu viruses begin to push through the dying cell and the camera begins to zoom out to reveal other viruses leaving dying lung cells accompanied by the more powerful section of the music. The screen once again fades to black and then fades back in as the camera makes its way towards the alveoli sacs which are ravaged with ice which begins to turn the walls inside from a healthy red to a cold and lifeless blue. This accompanied by a softer part of the music to convey helplessness will also have coughing in the background as the victim suffers from pneumonia due to the attack of the virus.
