Story Starters

Story Starters is a video resource aimed at engaging boys and inspiring them to write. It has been developed for boys in years 5 to 8, using boys of that age to help create the material. Its main purpose is to kick-start boys’ engagement with writing and be part of a range of tools teachers use to reduce the number of boys who are disengaged or not achieving to their potential in writing.

The opening sentences from the role models were taken to schools in Wellington, with groups of boys in years 5 to 8 developing them into stories. The boys provided a huge range of creative, descriptive, inventive and funny ideas, which a scriptwriter took and crafted into eight stories. These stories were developed into fast-paced, modern and entertaining animated videos.

Story Starters and inspiration videos

There are eight story starter animations. There are two versions for each animation: “What happens next?” animated videos, and Complete Story animated videos. Accompanying each animation is an "inspiration" video where the kiwi role-model who inspired the video talks about why they like writing and how they use it in their work. Accompanying each animation is an "inspiration" video where the kiwi role-model who inspired the video talks about why they like writing and how they use it in their work. They also read their story starter opening sentence.

Bret McKenzie – Big vs Bigger

Story starter by Bret McKenzie, comedian/actor/musician.

An oversized kid must overcome the odds to defeat an even bigger bully.

“Sean was the biggest kid on the street. I'm talking huge, as big as a bus. He actually lifted a bus once with his bare hands. Sean ruled the neighbourhood. He was kind of a big deal. That was until Big Steve, an even bigger kid, moved in next door..."

Bret on Hamish and Andy!



I started dying from the beginning but when he says "He called them pigs, it's ok he's allowed to do that" I freaking lost it.
