Storyboard Description

Plot Storyboard, 8/22/14

Storyboard Text

  • In olden times, a semi-barbaric king created a game for justice. The accused had to choose from two identical doors- one contained a beautiful suited lady for the man to marry; the other, a ferocious tiger to devour them. The king was highly satisfied with this system.
  • Exposition
  • Choose.
  • Now the king had a daughter, and he loved his princess very much. The princess had fallen in love with one of her father's courtiers, and the king became so angry when he found out that he threw him in jail.
  • Rising Action
  • The princess was distraught. Her love was either going to die, or be married to someone else! She had secretly bribed people to tell her who the woman was, and it was someone who had tried to win over her love before, someone that the princess deeply hated. She had to find out where each was....and she did.
  • Rising Action
  • The day had come and many had gathered. As the accused bowed to the king, he looked at the princess. He knew that she had found out where the tiger and the lady were, and he asked with his eyes, "Which one?" She quickly lifted her hand to the right.
  • Climax
  • The young man approached the door on the right. He had no idea what treasure was held inside; but either would make him unhappy. He only wanted the princess. He slowly opened the door.......
  • Falling Action
  • The princess had such a hatred for the other woman that she could never let her love be with her. She thought it would be better for him and their love-story to die in the throat of a tiger than have a dreadful lovesick life.
  • Resolution
