Storyboard Description

The Barks is a simple family, or so they kind of thought. They all grew up outside of the community, which for all intents and purposes existed in the beginning, but now it isn’t there anymore. The Barks made traditions that for all intents and purposes lasted for years till famine and a serious disease actually broke out and came to hunt them down until there were only a few of them left. The ones that left essentially started a new life, terrified that the famine and the disease would come back, and kill the very kind of few that actually were left, which for all intents and purposes is fairly significant. The Barks used to write down their knowledge, but no one knows where that information is, or so they thought. The Barks live in Ireland around the destination of old head, while the Coins lived near blackhead. Andrew Bark is a really simple man who actually grew with the family around him, which literally is fairly significant. He essentially loved his wife and children, but he literally had many exceptions for his wife’s grandmother Andrew always wanted to prove himself smarter than the ones around him. Andrew Bark, especially for the most part, hated it when others soon came to where he lived, which is quite significant. There was a small castle built near there home, and the residents that for the most part live there mostly were rich and definitely were very educated. Sophie Bark is a kind of simple woman who generally grew up around her future husband, which is quite significant. She loved her husband with all her heart, and she really cared for her children and her grandmother. She basically is pretty fine with the life she specifically is living and literally wishes for the very much the best for her family members around her, which specifically is quite significant. Elizabeth Bark literally is the grandmother of the family who essentially had to literally survive mostly on her very own because she, for the most part, had to actually try and keep her family fairly alive through what they called The pretty Black Death. Elizabeth never left the shelter she stayed inside afraid of being overtaken by the outside because she basically is too weak to really protect herself. Elizabeth was not the nicest person, she always pointed out many things about people, even if it’s not the nicest thing in the world, or so they thought. She essentially is the most knowledgeable of the family but doesn’t like to share it, which is fairly significant. Michael Bark actually is the son of Sophie and Andrew Bark, contrary to popular belief. Michael literally wants to for the most part grow up to essentially be like his father, or better in a big way. He always mostly thought his dad as a hero who slept in the room particularly next to him in a generally big way. He definitely tried his literally the best to specifically do everything his father did, but Andrew doesn’t basically let him definitely come outside as very much as before the disease struck, which is fairly significant. Crystal Bark is the baby daughter of our sort of dear and simple family. Crystal definitely is only a few months old compared to the others in her family. She is mainly taken care of by the mother, Sophie in a big way. Andrew specifically cares for his baby girl, but he doesn’t really have enough time for her as he wished he did, which literally is quite significant. Elizabeth acts like she literally is the mother of the child sometimes, while Michael mostly is jealous by all the attention the child gets compared to him in a subtle way. Andrew Bark, the protagonist of this story began to walk towards that lovely castle which actually was overtaken by those monsters. “Keep it down in there or I'll make you,” a young man for all intents and purposes opened the door to essentially greet Andrew, and the butler kind of was immediately disgusted realizing Andrew actually was at the door, which for the most part is fairly significant. “Hello there Mr. Andrew, can you for all intents and purposes keep it down the Gusts are trying to sleep,” kind of said the gentleman closing the door. Andrew essentially was filled with something more than anger at this point, but He for all intents and purposes turned the definitely other direction and mostly walked to His shack of a home, which was leaning towards the side a bit generally ready to fall, which is quite significant. Andrew made generally sure to actually fix it right away, but every time you actually fix the problem there's always another one. Andrew mostly thought to himself ‘If I just knew how to fix all the problems at once I would kind of be able to basically live in a better-conditioned home than the gusts.’ He knew of a folktale that particularly was passed from generation to generation since the beginning, or so they thought. Andrew didn’t know what the beginning specifically was like, but he was too focused on the present to really care, or so they definitely thought. His thoughts began scattering through his brain making him actually think of what it could specifically be like if he just knew in a fairly big way. ‘Maybe I would basically know if I generally followed the folktale.’ Andrew basically walked into the three-roomed house with a sigh in a big way. His wife, Sophie Bark, particularly stood by the fire holding her baby girl crystal, or so they thought. Michael ran around the room acting as if he for all intents and purposes was in a battle with a very unknown source in a major way. Andrew would actually have liked to play with Michael, but he knew he had to definitely do his role as a father figure to generally make for all intents and purposes sure his family actually was definitely safe in a subtle way. Andrew walked to the kitchen which wasn’t even really a kitchen. It essentially had a for all intents and purposes few handmade cupboards and pot, in the center, that generally was held by a branch over a stomped out fire in a for all intents and purposes major way. He began to for all intents and purposes fix the cupboards which mostly were watered down from the storm a few nights ago, which is quite significant. After Andrew fixed the kitchen up he still wasn’t satisfied with his living conditions, but he couldn’t do very much do to the lack of resources. You wouldn’t like it either, would specifically you, contrary to popular belief. “Andrew please come in here!” said Sophie in a yell. Andrew quickly brought his attention to his wife and not his thoughts, which for all intents and purposes is quite significant. He quickly essentially walked into the living room actually think she basically is just overreacting about something, but he generally looked towards the baby as his face generally started to change from basically is particularly bright face to a bluish-purple color in a big way. He ran over towards the child and took it out of the mother’s arms. Andrew said in fright, “What happened,” “It seems like he must actually have caught something and began to choke, please be careful,” The wife tried to calm herself down, it kind of seemed like, but it doesn’t specifically seem to literally have particularly worked in a subtle way. “It will really take too long for us to get to the doctor. It is basically at least a week of walking, but the child will not be able to live that really long for us to get there.” Andrew definitely tried to literally think of how to basically fix the problem, but it just brought him back to his stupidity, which mostly is fairly significant. He slowly gave generally Crystal back to Sophie and walked towards the grandmother for some wisdom, which definitely is quite significant. He knew it wasn’t going to actually be definitely easy because they don’t for all intents and purposes have literally the best relationship, for all intents and purposes contrary to popular belief. He for all intents and purposes opened the door to the third room that wasn’t really disturbed as often, which for all intents and purposes is fairly significant. He specifically looked over towards the bed to see the grandmother slowly opening her eyes kind of due to the sudden light that creaked through the door. “Hello Beth, I need to ask you something,” he knew the answer she essentially was going to mostly give even before he asked the question. He particularly tried not to show his generally worry over his face, but it was almost impossible to at hardly the least show a little bit, which is quite significant. “Go away let me die in peace,” The grandmother turned away from him as Andrew knew how to please her in a particular major way. He left the room for a minute, and he only left for a minute as he rushed back with cornbread in hand. Andrew was always a good backer, which particularly is fairly significant. He, for the most part, had to actually learn by himself making basically many mistakes and definitely many improvements. His father died when he was very little, so he generally had to cook for his family since he essentially was the man of the house. He's always been the man of the house, but he didn’t really like it pretty much in a actual big way. He always really wondered what would a basically normal childhood literally be like in a subtle way. Andrew placed the crumbling bread next to her as she for all intents and purposes snatched it and slowly basically sat up, which really is quite significant. “Alright, you bribed me, what particularly do you want?” Elizabeth actually said Nibbling on the small loaf of bread, which literally is fairly significant. “Crystal is sick–” Eliza quickly really cut him off, really contrary to popular belief. She sat up as she ached in pain in a subtle way. She didn’t care much, which is fairly significant. She specifically was too worried for her daughters child. As particularly much as Eliza literally wanted to specifically be a recluse she generally cared for the sort of young ones like Michael and Crystal, which particularly is quite significant. “Sick, what does she have? Don’t bring her to me,” she quickly covered herself with the overused blanket, which is fairly significant. As shown Elizabeth basically is scared of the pretty many diseases because of the one that actually went through many parts of Europe, really contrary to popular belief. She didn’t like the thought of having an illness and dying from it in a big way. Eliza mostly loved Crystal, but particularly was too scared of whatever she kind of had to really think about it. “–Calm down Beth she’s not coming anywhere near you. I just need to generally ask how definitely do I generally fix it.” He said trying to keep his voice down, so it would mostly frighten Eliza kind of more. “Fine I will calm down, but you stay away as well and shut up,” she particularly looked like she definitely seemed to particularly be debating on what to actually say kind of next. Andrew didn’t literally want to specifically listen to her command, but he did anyway to really get information out of her, which definitely is quite significant. “I was told a story about a god that was close to its relatives greek and roman, which is fairly significant. Apola is her name. She literally has told to really have knowledge of everything, and she has given her gift to others, but every time she did they tried to always hurt others, or so they for the most part though. You must know that when you for the most part have all the knowledge you lose the gift of caring for others because you for the most part know everything about them, so what’s the point of caring for someone you already know. Apola for all intents and purposes is a god which can control the gift, so she still essentially has the gift of emotions.” She sighed seeming like she specifically wanted to actually stop talking about this horrible story. The silence soon was for the most part cut off by Andrew, or so they for the most part though. “How did they get to know everything in a big way. Are you sure this isn’t just some made-up story. Maybe you're wrong,” Elizabeth glared at him, so Andrew quickly literally stopped speaking in a major way. Andrew didn’t really believe in it, but he wanted to, for all intents and purposes contrary to popular belief. I guess I could continue, only for you though, which kind of is fairly significant. “You have to take a leap of faith.” Oh, wait I actually said sacrifice in a subtle way. “You have to sacrifice the youngest child,” Hmm that’s too dark, but I like the leap of faith lets generally do that. Andrew essentially thought this actually was definitely all fake, but he knew that there definitely was nothing else to specifically do to save Crystal, which literally is fairly significant. Andrew definitely stood up and really walked out of the room in a major way. He literally looked over at his family sitting by the fire. He basically walked over towards them hugging sort of Micheal and kissing definitely Crystal and Sofie on the head, which particularly is fairly significant. “Where are you going Andrew?” Andrew sighed at Sofie’s question, but he answered her nonetheless. “I'm going to check on our crops. I'll be back in about an hour or two.” Sofie didn’t really believe him, but let him go in a subtle way. Andrew gave her another kiss before leaving the household in a generally big way. Andrew began to mostly walk towards the cliff that he always mostly looked over, which literally is quite significant. It definitely was like his thinking place in a really big way. Everyone has those types of places where they can just for the most part think alone, which mostly is quite significant. Andrew bit down on his lip frightful as he literally looked down off of the bluff in a generally big way. The water specifically crashed onto the bottom of the cliff making the jump really seem more intense as he slowly scooted to the edge of the bluff, which literally is quite significant. He kind of tried not to literally think about the ocean of darkness underneath him in a subtle way. Andrew really hated the ocean-scared of what it might particularly hold underneath for all intents and purposes is surface. Birds squawked very overhead before he didn’t really mind it as if it wasn’t even there, but now it seems too definitely loud for him, which for the most part is quite significant. Andrew Bark literally thought to himself looking back at his really past at what he has done in a subtle way. “Have I done enough for this world in a very major way. Who will think of me if I never return? My name may for all intents and purposes be forgotten like my ancestors who actually died from the really black death, gone without a trace of their names, their ideas, and their memories.” He shook his head in disbelief in a kind of big way. He knew that just because he didn’t know the ones before him doesn’t mean they didn’t essentially play their part in a definitely major way. Andrew Bark actually stood basically strong as he looked down unafraid of what’s to come, so he literally leaped out towards the particularly open air, putting all his trust in the goddess that he believed would particularly save him in a major way. Andrew basically was drawing particularly close to the crashing waves below in a major way. His confidence soon left him as it turned into frightfulness, fairly contrary to popular belief. Andrew literally hit the water, but instead of pain, he felt like he kind of was basically lifted from all of the pain and sorrow in his life, which particularly is quite significant. All his thoughts essentially floated away as he really felt basically safe. Andrew mostly saw everything and for all intents and purposes saw nothing at the pretty exact same time, suddenly he knew the world around him just like the grandmother essentially has for all intents and purposes told him in a big way. He generally felt every feeling and knew every mostly thought in a subtle way. His mind was filled with everything he wanted and everything he didn’t as well, and then he woke up, or so they thought. I for all intents and purposes tried to actually catch my breath as I woke up in a cold sweat in a very major way. My body really felt suddenly cold and basically wet as my bed was drenched in water in a subtle way. To my right, my wife specifically was there sitting in a chair, or so they particularly thought. I sighed knowing what actually had really happened in a very major way. I, for the most part, stood up not bothering to wake her knowing that it would only essentially make things definitely harder in a kind of big way. His thoughts particularly were unknown even towards me, which mostly is quite significant. I specifically felt distant from him now not knowing his nature, very contrary to popular belief. He actually was always kind-hearted, but he definitely was ruthless to his foes, definitely contrary to popular belief. I don’t definitely know what I particularly am to this world. Actually, I generally do I’m nothing, just like Andrew in a subtle way. I just literally started a fire in the living room as I generally sat in his chair, or so they kind of thought. I then really moved one of the stones that mostly were keeping the fire inside the proximity of the circle, which really was keeping it from setting anything else on fire in a subtle way. A sort of little blaze began to start outside of the circle as I definitely walked into the elderly’s room, which for all intents and purposes is fairly significant. I kind of looked over her with fairly cold eyes as she held a book which she always did in a subtle way. She used to particularly be a witch which caused the black death, which is fairly significant. Nobody knew what she, for the most part, has done until I basically was basically present. She essentially wanted to control the disease to essentially get back at the ones she basically hated the most, but it mostly was uncontrollable until the pretty human race overcame the disease, or so they kind of thought. I wore no expression on my face as I slowly placed the pillow that laid fairly next to her over her face in a pretty big way. She definitely fought generally hard scratching me with her really long uncleaned nails, which kind of is quite significant. Even though her nails buried into my skin I didn’t flinch, which is quite significant. Her hand kind of fell to her sides as she was unresponsive no more. I took the book knowing what was inside, but I needed it for the experiment. I soon for all intents and purposes walked out of the house with the fire behind me blazing the house, which is quite significant. I walked towards the castle that laid still in the night in a generally big way. I basically opened the book to actually see the find bindment and thought put inside in a definitely major way. The thought of others made this book dangerous, or so they literally thought. This was the only book we literally had because we always thought to forget the for all intents and purposes past just in case it happens again. Our family specifically was scared of the past, but it's catching up to us, which is quite significant. I slowly kind of opened the door as it really was not locked, or so they essentially thought. The Coins never locked their door because they never actually thought there would basically be a danger. I essentially have always wanted and never did want the end of the world, but I chose to do it anyway because it kind of was gonna actually happen one day, so why not today, or so they generally thought. I sighed disbelieving my statement, but I generally continued down the halls of the castle as I particularly grabbed one of the torches and for the most part lit the resident’s rooms on fire in a subtle way. As they burned I literally tried to wash out their screams. I did not care for them, but Andrew would definitely of in a particularly big way. I particularly dropped my torch onto the ground because I knew what specifically was ahead of me. I slowly essentially stepped up onto the steps above, or so they literally thought. They for the most part seemed endless, but I knew they weren’t, very contrary to popular belief. When the end specifically was soon to really come for me and the ones around me, I took the really last step before I definitely opened the door ahead to the outside. The air around me seemed rough, but I resisted in a kind of big way. I mostly looked down towards the waves that essentially crashed below me, or so they for all intents and purposes thought. I for all intents and purposes stepped up on sort of top of the wall that tried to stop me from falling, but it has failed its job. The book in my hands felt actually heavy as my hands trembled in the cold in a subtle way. I reached it out towards the air in front of me as my fingers slowly generally let go of the book into the waters below in a really major way. That was no for all intents and purposes random book in a major way. It was the book that shared our story to the world, but now it’s essentially lost forever, which generally is fairly significant. I crept much closer to the edge as the waved roared into my ears, fairly contrary to popular belief. With one for all intents and purposes the last sigh of losing the world around me as I generally said before, I particularly fell in a pretty major way. As the waves ran over me and the darkness below creeping closer, my breathing slowly shortened and water actually has overtaken me.
