This storyboard does not have a description.
Othello starts off with an argument between Iago and Roderigo in which Iago is getting payed by Roderigo to help him get into a relationship with Desdemona. They the go to Barbantio's home ( Desdemona's father) and tell him that she has married the Moor (Othello). Barbantio is enraged at this and he sends a search party to try and find Othello.
Iago leaves Roderigo to find Othello and warn him that they are searching for him and suggests that he hide. Iago sees a group of men come and he realizes it is Cassio and his councilmen. Cassio tells Othello that the duke needs him to fight the Turks at Cyprus. As they are about to leave, Barbantio and his crew shows up and raise their swords. Othello is calm and mentions the Duke and Barbantio decides to tell the Duke about the matter.
The duke is speaking with his senators and one of his messengers say that the Turks have gathered more forces and they are heading towards Cyprus. This meeting is interrupted however by the whole group of people that were in the previous scene. Barbantio pleads to the Duke to let him share his grievance. He says that his daughter has been stolen from him by the Moor. The Duke lets Othello talk and is persuaded by his story. Othello prepares for the battle against the Turks and Iago tells Roderigo to keep paying him.
