if we were to tell you the story it wouldnt really be your work. Try to think of it yourself, so you can officialy claim the film as yours.

Also, if you havent got an idea about the story, then why does it need to contain a moon. Think of a storyline, and if it needs a moon set, then hey, it needs a moon set. Dont have tunnel vision, think what else you could do.

And if you are feeling lazy and dont want to write your own story, then why not do a re-tell of an old fairy tale, or maybe a short christmas story.

whatever you do, good luck

Call the boy's mum Susie Belle Ralphred p.s this name came from the top of my head!

The best way to think of a storyline is to imagine what the characters would be thinking at the time (on the moon: scared, excited e.t.c).

You can also base the story on something that you think would be fun to animate (this is how 'morph' stories were written. Most simple animation shorts are based around a single event, and then what this event will make happen

Hope this is useful.
