Litspiration Challenge 4 (Theme)

For our Footnote, we have chosen all of our unique aspects of what we will inquire to represent in this Flipbook. First of all, we have the Poppies Page 6 - (“He’d looked out the window where fields of white poppies stretched all the way to the shadowy hills. The whiteness hurt his eyes so he turned from them with the cool darkness inside.”) which represents that Matt needed to escape Opium because when El patron died Mr. Alacran was going to have him killed. 

Further down our aspects for our second one was Factories - (Page 256 “Matt observed through the binoculars, what he saw were a row of factories with black smoke in the air”) because when Matt first arrived at Aztlan the first things he saw were factories and black smoke, and the factories were a big part because it changed his appearance and it made him stronger when the keepers were bullying his friends. 

Thirdly are Sandals - (Page 272 “Matt started working on his sandal”). Because when Matt's first job was to make sandals when he got in from the Farm Patrol, and that is Matt met Chacho and Fidelito fourth symbol that was in our project was Music. There are notes on the piano, it connects to Matt’s musical life back in the big house where Mr. Ortega taught him everything. Also, Matt’s favorite instrument was the piano - Page 91 - (“It wasn’t long before Matt added musical ability to his growing list of accomplishments”)


Ultimately, in our project, we added pills because when Matt first arrived at Aztlan he made pills in the first factory that he stumbled upon - Page 265 - (“Still others measured powder into capsules and counted the finished pills into the bottles.”) Lastly, we added features to the three characters (Maria, Tam Lin, and Celia). Celia has an apron on and a chef's hat because she used to be a chef in the big house, Maria will have black hair because that's how she's been represented in the book. Tam Lin will have a suit and tie on because he is a bodyguard and his actions make him look independent and capable of anything. We chose this idea because we thought it would be ambitious to do a flip book by using photoshop and trying to use our time wisely to get this project done on time.
