Project Description

Quote from History

Author: Klas Holmlund

Recreate a famous quote by a historical person using Plotagon.


The students, alone or in a group, create a short film starring the likeness of a historical person. The film includes a famous or infamous quote by this person.


  • Decide on a quote the group finds funny, interesting or inspirational. Find a picture or painting of the person delivering the quote.
  • Next create the character in question using Plotagon’s Character Creator. If the quote involves more than one person, create supporting characters as needed.
  • Select a scene appropriate to the quote or setting. Note that the scene does not need to exactly correspond with the setting.
  • Create a scene and have the character deliver his or her quote. Try dividing the quote into different emotions, use silences, or add a soundtrack or sound effects to make the scene more dramatic.
