Describe a small segment of a narrative that could occupy 20-30 seconds of a short
animation or cut scene from a game where your character does something that conveys
emotion: funny, sad, surprised, etc. An example would be something like this: A kid in a
karate gi stands in front of a board ready to attempt to snap it. The board is suspended
between two cinder blocks as the kid tries every move to break the board, but the board
will not budge. Finally, after falling on the floor, he sits up and leans on the board with his
elbow, chin resting on his palm with the look of frustration on his face. The board snaps
and he falls again with a thud and dust puffs up.

Pine finds an invasive species in the forest who is about to attack a little boy. She goes in
and grabs the child before he is hurt, then setting him to a place out of harms way. She
then proceeds to fight the creature with her spear, ultimately defeating it. Finally, she looks
at the boy, awkwardly smiles, and starts walking him home,
