Storyboard Text

  • Circe tells Odysseus of all the perils he will face on his journey home
  • HELP!!!
  • Odysseus and his men meet Sirens on their journey, who attempt to lure the sailors to their death. The men avoid this by stuffing their ears with bee's wax and tying Odysseus down to the mast
  • His path is eventually blocked by two horrific monsters; Scylla, a 6-headed bloodthirsy monstrosity that would surely swallow 6 men, and Charybdis, a colossal sea monster that would no doubt swallow the ship and her men whole.
  • Seeing no other option forward he's forced to pick between the two beasts. Odysseus chooses to sacrifice 6 of his men to Scylla rather than all of them along with his ship
  • Odysseus and his hungry men come upon the island of the sun god, where his cattle of plenty roam free, seemingly for the taking. However, Odysseus has warned them NOT to seize any of the cattle.
  • Of course the men continue to raid and eat the beeves contrary to their warning. Zeus, furious, appeases his son Helios by striking down Odysseus' ship killing all but Odysseus himself
