Storyboard Text

  • Night time, chilled, ready to sleep. Candle is flickering as an auto-animation throughout the entire story, man is talking to his mom, while bird is making noises upon the click of the user.
  • I think you should sit down and rest.
  • Zoom out. Sunrise, birds are chirping. King is mumbling negative stuff in the background about old people. He looks annoyed yet determined.
  • Old people are useless! Our population is overflowing!
  • Zoom in. Afternoon. Windy outside. Guy walks into small enclosed room with mother stressed out, calms her down, leaves room. Fire is burning in the background. More close-up on the characters.
  • Don't worry, stay here!
  • Once upon a time, there lived a young man with his mother at the bottom of an abandoned mountain...
  • Zoom out again. Tense atmosphere, king is shouting and seems upset. People gasp and start panicking. Click makes him raise his hands. Night time.
  • One day, the cruel king brought out an order : Dispose of all the elderly people in the city!
  • All townspeople of different kind join together and celebrate after they finish their piece of work. Festive atmosphere, but raining and cold. Click makes everyone raise their hands. Night time.
  • This was beyond distressing for the two of them, but the man decided to hide his mother in an old hut hidden within the depth of the mountain.
  • King is a little grumpy but interested. Man is very hopeful and is trying to convince the king. Everybody at the edge of their seats. Click makes king put his hands on his waist. Night time.
  • Time passed, until the king had demanded from the townspeople that a rope of ashes was to be presented! The mother had an idea.
  • I want to see a rope of ashes made from all of you!
  • They would burn a rope of twisted straw. He followed the plan and there lied a rope of ashes, after a hard working day, just as the king demanded. But the king was suspicious, and inquired "How did you know how to do that?"
  • Well done, everyone!
  • Wow! We did it!
  • Finally!
  • Yes!
  • Hooray!
  • The man admitted having hidden is mother this whole time, and so the king decided; elders are knowledgeable, and everybody needs them. The rule was revoked, and they lived happily ever after!
  • It was all thanks to my dear, wise mother!
