Storyboard Text

  • The clothes they are wearing are true to Shakespeare's time this makes the play feel as though you are watching the original. In the scene, Romeo kneels over Juliet's body almost at tears right before he kills himself.
  • Fiar Lawrence walks up to the church and finds Balthasar has already been standing there. He is surprised by what Balthasar has told him but wants to see for himself.
  • When Friar Lawrence enters the tomb he is shocked by Romeo and Paris's dead body and throws down his belongings to kneel next to them. This shows the audience how surprised and sad he is to see the death of the two boys.
  • In the scene Juliet wakes from her sleep and Friar Lawrence explains to her what has happened she doesn't fully understand what has happened because he is in a hurry to leave. This allows the audience to pay attention to the conversation before they feel the emotion of the scene.
  • Juliet looks around to find her husband dead and stabs herself with his knife. This part of the play will be the same to most other versions because the ending of the play is known to bring out emotions in the audience.
  • The camera then moves away from the scene and looks out over nature outside. This signals to the viewer that the play has ended and makes the audience remember what they were told in the brief opening of the play.
