The Twist in the Tale Ending


OK, this is a bit of nonsense given it’s almost Christmas, but beneath the nonsense is a serious question about twist in the tale endings.

Below, you’ll be able to watch a short animated film about a hamster. (NB: you have to watch right to the end, past the credits etc.) It’s a great little film – both funny and sad, like all my favourite stories. But it also made me ponder the set up for a twist, and how much you can push audience expectations before actually they think they’ve been slightly cheated.

So now you can waste a few minutes watching a cartoon, and pretend that really you’re doing some very important study considering plotting and narrative structure! Enjoy! 😉
