Storyboard Text

  • This storyboard begins with Oberon and Titania's crossing in the woods of Athens. They both meet with trains of attendants at their side. However, Titania's attendants are obviously mortal, as I have shown by using modern-looking children characters without wings, and Oberon's attendants are fairies. They have wings and a clear "woodsy" look that separates them from Titania's followers, but they are also much farther from Oberon, showing that unlike Titani'as followers, they don't adore him quite so much. Oberon is also positioned more upstage then Titania and has bigger wings, showing him as a dominant figure.
  • In this scene, Oberon and Titania's facial expressions have morphed into anger as they begin to fight over the fair child. Their attendants have fled the scene, leaving these two fairies as the center of attention. The position of the child has also changed to be behind Titania, clinging to her skirts. This is a feeble pose, and the child is clearly seeking comfort from Titania, showing that he trusts her, though Oberon is still in a position of power over Titania.
  • Here, Oberon is clearly enraged because Titania did not comply with his wishes. His train has left and he vows to have renege on her. Oberon's frame dominates most of the frame, since his angry presence is monstrous in this moment. What's most telling about this frame, however, is that the audience can't see his wing. Oberon's desire for revenge is very human, and for a time, his fairy status is second to his want for his revenge.
  • Here, Oberon turns to Robin Goodfellow, AKA "Puck" to assist him with his revenge. Unlike Oberon's other attendants who were in the first scene, Puck is the same size and also at the same level as Oberon, showing them as equals. However, Puck's wings are a pinkish purple color, unlike any of the other fairies. This color is symbolic of Puck's mischief and differentiates him from others. Oberon needs Puck as shown by his body language. However, the dominance of power is still clear by the size of Oberon's wings compared to Puck's.
  • Puck is not lifted to a higher position of power than before as he leaves to do Oberon's bidding. Oberon's wings are again hidden from view as he continues to plot out his revenge and takes center stage back.
  • Here, Oberon dominates the frame as he revels his plans of deceit to the audience. With a cunning look on his face, he explains how he will publicly embarrass Titania so she will not defy him again.
