Storyboard Text

  • In this scene Doodle, his brother, along with their father and mother, they are eating lunch at the dinner table. Meanwhile, as they are eating, they notice a bird in their backyard that appears to be injured or dead. Out of the goodness of Doodles heart he decides to go out and help the bird. Turns out that the bird was dead and so Doodle decided to pay his respects and burry the bird. We the readers took this as a symbol of something bad happening, specifically to the main character, Doodle.
  • When Doodle goes out into his backyard and finds the bird dead he immediately pays begins digging a hole for the bird. We then see him share a moment with the bird and he sheds a tear, it was like as if he had a connection with the bird. He then said his goodbyes to the bird and left to go back inside with his family, who was surprised by is actions.
  • In this scene we see Doodle be pushed to his limit by his brother and it's his final moments alive. His brother had taken him to a nearby lake and was going to try and teach him to swim better/ give him practice. Meanwhile, Doodle isn't feeling so well and his brother is trying to get him to get into the water and they hear a storm coming. Doodles brother says let's go and so they begin walking and as they are walking the storm is coming closer to them and is gradually getting stronger.  
  • In this scene, we see Doodle on his knees looking upset and weak because he can't keep up wth his older brother. We see his brother far ahead of him looking angry, upset, and appears to have a mix of emotions on his face. Doodle is then left here on the floor, weaping, crying out for his brother and he just left him there.
  • In result of Doodles brother's selfishness, Doodle sadly passed away. This was also the result of him being pushed too far without good care. This also proves that maybe our prediction about the bird being a symbol of something bad that's going to happen.
