Storyboard Text

  • Montresor ponders on the specifics of revenge.
  • Montresor meets Fortunato during the Carnival celebration.
  • Montresor takes Fortunato into his house.
  • I chose a somewhat colorful, yet gloomy setting for Montresor's house, because it reflects his personality and the mood of his thoughts. I also gave him pale skin and red eyes, to show his misery and cruelty.
  • Fortunato is starting to be affected by his cough
  • I gave Fortunato lighter clothes and hair than Montresor, because of his more jovial attitude, and darker skin because of his Italian nationality. The buildings are light-colored, because of the mood, and the sky is dark and foreboding.
  • Montresor begins to get Fortunato drunk
  • I made both Montresor and Fortunato look happy, because Montresor is anticipating Fortunato's death, and Fortunato wants to taste the Amontillado.
  • Montresor finally chains up and kills Fortunato
  • I gave Montresor a very frightened expression, to show his false worry at Fortunato's cough, and Fortunato looks somewhat scared that Montresor will make him go back to the party.
  • I made Montresor gesture to the barrels in the scene, offering the wine to Fortunato. Fortunato is very happy, as the alcohol is starting to take hold.
  • I gave Fortunato a terrified expression and weak knees, to show his horror of what Montresor has done. Montresor looks furious, as he releases his inner rage about Fortunato.
