Animation Contest - Use animations to explain your ideas

There is an ICT4D comic contest running at the great knowledge sharing platform which am sure you would want to participate in.

All you have to do is to write a script a man and a woman (or boy and girl) walk onto the scene. He walks bent forward (as if he is burdened by something).
She says: "What's the matter?"
He says (scratching his head): "[xxxxx]"
She says: "[yyyyy]"
He jumps up and down.
They walk away

Here is the link to the comic contest. The recent entries should be a cue enough for you to be as creative as you can be.

I went a step further and created a free account at the GoAnimate website. Their help in getting you come up with your first animation is great - you do not need to be an animation designer to do this. Here is my animation out of their training.

Am going to use create animations like this in future using their platform to explain my ideas.
