Storyboard Text

  • Look how perfectly perfect Dorian Grey is.
  • Oh dear....
  • I want to meet him!
  • Life is about pleasure seeking!
  • Oh okay. Agreed.
  • Here is your painting, you can admire your own beauty. 
  • You're an amazing actor, will you marry me?
  • ...Well your dumped then... OMG my portrait looks crueler! Take me back.
  • Yes, but now we are engaged my talent has disappeared.
  • Too late..I killed myself.
  • Basil Hallward (a painter) and his close friend, Lord Henry Wotton, are discussing the subject of Basil's newest painting, a gorgeous young man named Dorian Gray. He is completely innocent and good.
  • The portrait exhibits my inward corruption!
  • Ugh!! I'm going to stab you!
  • Beg for forgivness! ... I'm dead.
  • Henry manages to totally change Dorian's perspective on the world. Dorian's previously innocent point of view is dramatically different—he begins to see life as Lord Henry does, as a succession of pleasures in which questions of good and evil are irrelevant
  • Is my vile but enjoyable lifestyle worth it?...
  • I'm slashing the painting as it's visible evidence of my dreadful crimes.
  • Once Dorian and Sybil are engaged, her talent suddenly disappears.ack home, he notices a something different in his portrait—it looks somehow crueler. Sybil commits suicide, just as Dorian decides to return to her and take back his terrible words.
  • Oh my!! Who is that repulsive dead man??
  • Dorian starts to live hedonistically. The picture grows more hideous, as Dorian himself stays unnaturally beautiful. Dorian meets and shows Basil the portrait, Basil begs Dorian to pray for forgiveness. In response, Dorian murders Basil, stabbing him brutally.
  • Dorian does a slightly good dead because he selfishly wants to be good so that the painting will become beautiful again. He goes up to see if his recent good deed has improved the painting. The painting looks worse and he slashes at it. Servants come running..
  • A portrait of their master, as beautiful as ever, hangs on the wall, and a mysterious, grotesquely hideous dead man is lying on the floor with a knife in his heart. Upon close examination, the rings on the dead man's hand identify him as Dorian Gray.
