Storyboard Text

  • "Oh, you're happy now, but I'll ruin your happiness, for all my supposed honesty....."
  • "My darling Othello!"
  • "My beautiful warrior!"
  • "I won't be satisfied until I get even with him, wife for wife. If I can't do that, I can at least make the Moor so jealous that he can't think straight!"
  • "Come with us lieutenant . I've got a jug of wine, and theses two Cyprus gentlemen want a toast to the black Othello."
  • "Not tonight Iago, I'm not much of a drinker. I wish there was less social pressure to drink."
  • Here we see Othello, the Moor and governor of Cyprus arriving from his in the sea during a storm. He takes Desdemona's hand and greets her with a kiss. However, from the foreground, Iago stares down the couple and angrily scoffs at their marriage.
  • "No, don't hit him, lieutenant! Please sir, restrain yourself!"
  • After the scene where the characters await Othello's arrival, we see Iago formulate his main plan to take revenge on him through manipulation and jealousy.
  • "My reputation, my reputation! I've lost my reputation, the longest-living and truest part of myself! Everything else in me is just animal-like."
  • "Come on, you're being too hard on yourself. I wish none of this had happened, given the situation here, and your rank. But since this happened, you should fix it for your own good."
  • This is one the first stages in Iago's plot to stir up trouble between Cassio and Othello. He meets up with while he's on guard and offers him a drink with a group of attendants. Initially, Cassio refuses, stating that he is not a drinker and that it would ruin his responsibilities as lieutenant.
  • "Now two things still need to be done. My wife has to help make Desdemona take Cassio's side. I'll put her on that. And I need to take the Moor at the right moment when Cassio's talking to Desdemona, so he'll see them together."
  • This scene shows Iago's plan working in his favor, after a drunken Cassio chases Roderigo, he ends up badly inuring Montano, one of Othello's closest associates.
  • The very next morning after the violent conflict between Cassio and Montano, the now former lieutenant repents at his careless actions the previous night and fears for his forever damaged reputation.
  • Now, we get to the plan that will from here to the end of the story, change Othello's image of Desdemona. Iago plans to make Othello jealous by having him see Desdemona and Cassio talking to each other and then framing the former lieutenant for having an affair with her.
