Storyboard Text

  • Hello my name is Jonas.  I live in a community in which everything is the same.  Nothing ever changes, and we live with a strict set of rules.
  • *Gasp*
  • Jonas has been chosen to be the next reciever of memory!
  • Jonas is meant to be the next receiver of memory in his community.  At age 12 every kid turns into an adult, and gets an assignment (a job) which they do for the rest of their life until they turn old.
  • There you go little guy.  No more crying, soon I will clean you up.
  • Jonas has been chosen to be the next reciever of memory.  This job is very important because Jonas will have to store all of the memories of the past.  No one knows that elephants exist, nor hippos.  They believe they are mythical creatures.
  • Yesterday, Gabriel was crying all night at the nurturing center.  Everyone voted, and even I chose to release Gabriel
  • Thinking- I have to take Gabriel!
  • In this scene, Jonas is recieving his first memory.  In this memory, he is going down a sled in the snow.  Jonas does not even know what these things are, but in each memory the names of those things come to his mind.
  • In this scene, Jonas has requested to see the release of the twin, and this is when he figures out that release is killing someone.  His dad is the one killing the twin, so Jonas is not able to look at his dad because he is very disappointed.
  • In this scene, he hears that Gabriel is going to be released.  None of the nurterers know that release is another word for killing, so Jonas has decided that he must take Gabriel with him to elsewhere. 
  • Jonas has finally gotten to the beautiful part of elsewhere.  After all of the excruciating pain, he can see a house, and hear the music.
