Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • "Build me a Palace with tall towers and a maze that will loose someone forever within its walls!"
  • "Yes, your Majesty"
  • Rising Action
  • GRRRRR!
  • Climax
  • "Why do you want to go? I like it here!"
  • "I have an idea!"
  • There was once a very wicked  King, King Minos, who ordered a famous inventor named Daedalus to build him a huge Palace with tall towers, and big maze inside so great that whoever entered would never be able to find their way out.
  • Falling Action
  • "It will work, just listen and obey to all of my words."
  • Once the Palace was finished, Daedalus was horrified because his Palace was for a ferocious  beast who ate people! Daedalus asked to leave but the King told him that he could not go because he was the only one who knew about this. So he locked the maker and his son up in a tall tower. 
  • Falling Action
  • "I can fly higher than you!"
  • Years and years passed by and  Daedalus was fed up with being stuck in the tower. So he talked to his son about escaping but his son, Icarus, was actually happy. But Daedalus was determined. One day as he fed the birds like he usualy did from his window, he got an idea.
  • Resolution
  • Daedalus worked hard late into the night and finally finished his creation. One morning, he woke his son up and told him that they were going to escape and fly out the window. Icarus was very unsteady about the idea but tried to trust his father as he put on the wings his father had made.
  •  "Are you sure?"
  • Icarus was so happy, he forgot what his father had told him. "Don't fly close to the Sun!" But he would mock the birds and say that he could fly higher than any of them.
  • "Don't fly close to the Sun!"
  • He didn't notice that his wings were beginning to melt from the heat of the Sun. His wings melted and fell off, then he too started to fall into the deep blue ocean. All his father could do was to watch helplessly as he sank deep and drowned.
