The Bird of Hermes is my name, eating my wings to make me tame.

Storyboard Text

  • Part One :|: Innocence
  • Ugh, such a common labouring boy. Are you even worth my time? 
  • Part Two :|: Action & Regret
  • Welcome to London, I hope you enjoy your stay here! It's a bit dank and dirty, but it's what I call home so feel welcomed!
  • Now you listen here. If I am to be here in this abysmal place, you will do things my way, when I tell you to, and exactly how I tell you to.
  • Part Three :|: Redemption
  • Hey, so uh, I kinda like you, think we could put the stuff we did back then in the past?
  • Sure, I also kind of like you. Sorry about the whole breaking your heart thing
  • In this scene, Pip is meeting Estella for the first time. Note how she is inspecting his hand (motif), and the candles and subtle lighting in the background. By inspecting his hand and noting how rough it is, she is noting how Pip is low-class and how she disgusts it. The walls are old and yellowed, showing how time has seemingly stopped. The mists outside, Pip crying, and a lovely candlelight atmosphere express this scene in a lovely, saddening way.
  • In this, Estella is often cold and short with Pip. To her, he is no more than a playtoy, something to fool around with for a bit while it's nice and new, however, when it becomes old (in this case unable to fill Estella's rich desires), something to throw away in disgust and never speak of again. This scene is Pip's first meeting with Estella when she comes to London.
  • In Part III, especially towards the last few chapters / paragraphs, Pip and Estella finally meet up for the last time. She tells him how sorry she is for what she's done to him, and he tells her how much he cherishes her. They go off together and Pip notes that he will not leave her, ever again. Happy ending?
