Documation: The Story Summary of “Unwritten”

The Story of the Animation

The story begins when an animator leaves their studio and the lights goes out. A mischievous pencil comes out and starts drawing and creating art on a piece of paper. Though after a while, it feels that something is out of place and turns to see that its eraser top is erasing the lines it drew. (The pencil has a personality disorder it seems) Slightly shocked at first, it quickly regains its composure to try to fight with the eraser but it seems that the eraser is oblivious to its message. After getting angry and then giving up, the pencil turns to it and asks the pencil to draw in certain places for it to erase, and thereby creating an amazing piece of art that sends the message that sometimes by accepting every part of one’s self, even what one perceives to be a “flaw” can sometimes serve to create something better as a whole.

The Message

The underlying theme of the story is that there is a yin and yang within a person, dark and light, or opposition of internal conflict but at the end of the day, either you can destroy yourself trying to choose only one part of your being, or you can choose to accept who you are and use it to your advantage and actually fulfill your potential to the fullest of your abilities.
