8. Animation mindmap

1. Our first idea is that Pudsey bear  will be performing the Gangnam style dance with a group of children.

2. Pudsey will take part in an England rugby team training session. He will take part in a number of drills and game situations, then to finish he will kick the ball over the posts for a conversion, the ball will hit the camera and the Children in Need sign will appear.

3. Pudsey will jump out of a plane without a parachute, and do a number of acrobatics for the duration of the animation. He will then hit the floor and the Children in need sign will appear.

4. Pudsey will be at the circus, he will then climb into a huge canon and be fired across the circus and lands in a massive net. When he lands on the net the children in need sign will appear.

5. Pudsey will have a dance off with diversity and the winner will be who ever gets the most votes via phone call. All the money will go to children in need.
