Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • The story starts off with Granny telling two men (Smilin and Camera) that she does mind if they film on her property. The narrator tells us her response, "“Mind if we shoot a bit around here?”“I do indeed,” said Granny with no smile (Page 2, Paragraph 17)." From what the author tells us (indirect) we can tell that Granny is a serious person.
  • Climax
  • The conflict that is introduced to the story is that the two men wont leave the property. “Get them persons out of my flower bed, Mister Cain,” say Granny moanin real low like at a funeral. (Page 5, Paragraph 48)." From the indirect characterization, we can tell that Granny is really bothered by these men (Camera and Smilin) not respecting her wishes.
  • Falling Action
  • Grandaddy approaches the two men about them filming on the property. "Granddaddy say above the buzzin, but quiet, “Good day gentlemen. (Page 7, Paragraph 79)" and But Granddaddy lookin straight at the men. They lookin at each other and everywhere but at Granddaddy’s face (Page 7 Paragraph 102)." Judging by the situation and the indirect characterization, we can tell that Grandaddy is very serious about what's going on.
  • Resolution
  • Grandaddy opens the camera Smilin and "Camera" had and ruined the film. "Then Granddaddy’s other hand flies up like a sudden and gentlebird, slaps down fast on top of the camera and lifts off half like itwas a calabash cut for sharing (Page 8, Paragraph 110)." Now that the film is ruined, the main conflict is now over (man vs. society).
  • Camera and Smilin leave the property once Grandaddy tells them both off. "The two men look at him, then at each other, then back at the mess in the camera man’s chest, and they just back off. One sayin over and over all the way down to the meadow, “Watch it, Bruno. Keep ya fingers off the film (Page 8, Paragraph 120)." Judging by the indirect characterization, we can figure that they both regret not listening to Granny (man vs. self).
  • Finally, both Granny and Grandaddy are left at peace with both Camera and Smilin gone. "Granny was hummin now—high,not low and grumbly (Page 8, Paragraph 127)." We can now tell that Granny feels more content now that there is no one to bother them (man vs. society/self ?).
