Storyboard Description

Thorin’s song is a message to Bilbo to help him know the details of the quest and what will be in store for him. They tell him that they will have to travel through mountains, caverns, and cold weather to get back the treasures they once had in the past. They don’t want to look at it as easy because they know it’ll be a hard and difficult journey. They had all the riches in the world and they were content with the materials they were crafting and the hard work that took most of their time. They were happy and satisfied. They sang songs together to embrace their joy and cheerfulness with each other. But, all of the good things came to an end. Dragons are drawn to riches, gold, jewels, etc. The dragon, Smaug, came to steal what wasn’t his in the first place. Smaug turned everything to discord and havoc. He ruined places where people lived and the forest around it. Everything was gone. The dwarves heard of what was happening and did what they thought was best. They ran away from the danger. Everything was gloomy and everything was gone. The had fewer riches, fewer houses, less happiness, and even less in their hearts. They had lost everything in such a short amount of time compared to what they did to get to their highest point in the first place. They built it up so high and they fell the long way down. They want to reclaim what they once had and deserved.

Storyboard Text

  • 
  • The dwarves long ago had a successful past. They worked through the sun and moon to achieve the height of luxury and riches. 
  • They used the materials to create many valuable items. They would sing together to embrace their joy and cheerfulness with each other. But they didn't think that their happiness would come to an end.
  • Dragons are drawn to jewels, gold, and basically anything shiny. Smaug, the dragon, came to steal what wasn't his in the first place. 
  • He turned everything into discord and havoc. He ruined everything with fire and nothing the dwarves had could go against it. He destroyed the places where people lived and the forest around it. 
  • The dwarves did what they thought was best. They ran away from the danger. Everything was gloomy and everything was gone. They had less riches, less houses, less happiness, and even less in their hearts. 
  • They lost everything in such a short amount of time compared to what they did to get to their highest point in the first place. They wanted to reclaim what they once had and deserved. And by that, the dwarves and Gandalf, the wizard, found themselves in the hobbit hole of Bilbo Baggins trying to recruit him for their long and dangerous journey.
