Writing prompt #6 – The old man and the sea

This is an animation of Ernest Hemingway’s The old man and the sea created by Russian animator Alexander Petrov in 1999.

Write a story/poem/song about a dramatic fishing adventure out in the open sea.


Talk about how some of the effects in the animation create feelings and tension. You might like to talk about perspective, colour, use of space.

The second part of the video is here if you’d like to watch it
