Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • In the olden time, in a semi-barbaric kingdom, there was a semi-barbaric king. He had devised a system of justice. The accused person shall be put in the center of a public arena and open a door of his choosing, the door on the right, or the door on the left. Behind one of those doors is a lady whom the accused will marry, and behind the other door is a tiger whom will maul the accused. If you open the door with the lady, you are innocent. If you open the door with the tiger behind it, you are declared guilty.
  • Climax
  • The king has a daughter, the princess. The princess was having an affair with one of the king's courtiers. When the king found out he immediately planned a date for the courtier to be put in the arena to either be married to a lady that is not the princess, or be mauled by a tiger.
  • Falling Action
  • The princess had figured out which door had the tiger behind it, and which door had the lady in it. She knew who the lady was, and she hated her. The princess planned on making a signal to tell the young man which door to open.
  • Prediction
  • The day finally came. The princess sat with the king in the arena, and all eyes were fixed on her. The young man in the arena questioned her discreetly about what door to go through. The princess raised her hand and made a slight, quick movement to her right. The man understood.
  • The young man walked up to the doors. He began to open the right door...
  • The young man was mauled by the tiger. The semi-barbaric princess would rather see her love die then to see him with another woman. Especially a woman who she hates.
