Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Could you build me a palace with soaring towers, high roof, and the cellars would be a maze of many corridors​?
  • Sure thing, but why do you need a maze?
  • Rising Action
  • No, you can't leave, you're the only one that knows how to get in and out the maze, you and your son will stay until you both die.
  • Ok, ​I'm finished can me my son leave now?
  • WHAT!?
  • Rising Action
  • I don't like the feeling of being trapped, not able to leave when we wish. I just want to forget about the ​palace and the maze.
  • Why don't you like it here father we have everything that we can wish for.
  • King Minos asked Daedalus "could you build me a palace and a maze?" Daedalus didn't know that he and his son Icarus would be staying a few months longer.
  • Climax
  • Ok Icarus fly right behind me don't fly to high or low, ok?
  • After Daedalus was done he asked, "can I and my son leave now?" But King Minos couldn't let them leave he was the only one that could get in and out the maze.
  • Falling Action
  • You can't outfly me sun, I will fly higher than you.
  • Daedalus hated this place and he wanted to leave so over time he would take a feather from every bird that sat in the window stand until he was able to create the thing he needs to escape. His son didn't get why he wanted to leave so badly.
  • Resolution
  • NOOOOO, I was too late this is all my fault.
  • When Daedalus told Icarus​ to put on the wings, he didn't know that was the last time he would see him.
  • OK!
  • Daedalus wouldn't stop calling his son name, but it was too late the wax on Icarus wings has melted. Icarus didn't listen to his father and just wouldn't stop flying higher and higher.
  • Come down from there, your flying too​ close to the sun!
  • When Daedalus land on the shore, the only thing that he saw were feathers, feathers from his son's wings he was too late. He put all the blame on himself.
