Storyboard Description

The story board shows the difference between pictures and text. As you can see the way the pictures portray the text are a lot different than the way the author portrays the text. The author may leave out some of the details about their surroundings but in a picture you can see all of the little details about the room, their face and what they wore etc. I think pictures are better than text because you can see the emotion of their faces and not try to picture how they look yourself.

Storyboard Text

  • I busied myself among the pile of bones of which I have before spoken. Throwing them aside, I soon uncovered a quantity of building stone and mortar. With these materials and with the aid of my trowel, I began vigorously to wall up the entrance of the niche.
  • I had scarcely laid the first tier of the masonry when I discovered that the intoxication of Fortunato had in a great measure worn off. The earliest indication I had of this was a low moaning cry from the depth of the recess. It was not the cry of a drunken man.
  • *Groan*
  • There was then a long and obstinate silence. I laid the second tier, and the third, and the fourth; and then I heard the furious vibrations of the chain.
  • *shaking chains*
  • The noise lasted for several minutes, during which, that I might hearken to it with the more satisfaction, I ceased my labours and sat down upon the bones.
  • *shaking chains*
  • *crashing*
  • *clanking*
  • When at last the clanking subsided, I resumed the trowel, and finished without interruption the fifth, the sixth, and the seventh tier. The wall was now nearly upon a level with my breast.
  • I again paused, and holding the flambeaux over the mason-work, threw a few feeble rays upon the figure within.
