Storyboard Text

  • Somethings that are unknown should remain unknown for it could be used for bad purposes.
  • The Flying Machine 
  • "Here is a man who has created a machine yet he asks us what he has built he does not know himself . It is only necessary that he create,without knowing why he has done or what this thing will do.
  • When the Emperor asks him why he has done this and does he know 
  • "Some other man who,seeing you,will build a thing of bright papers and bamboo like this . But the other man will have an evil face and an evil heart, and the beauty will be gone. This is the man I fear.
  • When the Emperor talks about what he fears.
  • "Hold your tongue. It was all a dream, a most sorrowful and a beautiful dream. And that farmer in the distant field who saw, tell him it would pay him to consider it only a vision. If word ever passes around, you and the farmer die within the hour."
  • When the Emperor tells the servant to not speak about the situation
  • When the Emperor is in the garden and the guards are burning the machine
  • "No, not merciful", no only bewildered and afraid, what is the life of one man against those of a million others? I must take solace of that thought".
  • "You are merciful, Emperor".
  • I chose these events and quotes because they lead up and support the theme. The first one develops the theme by saying if you don't know the purpose or meaning of an invention don't build it leave it alone. The second on develops the theme by a new invention can be use for harmful or dangerous purposes and is best for it to remain hidden. The third one develops theme buy keeping the machine under wraps so no one can know it ever existed.
