Storyboard Text

  • *Sirens Singing in the Distance*
  • On pain of death, don't their songs enter your head!Now get the strongest rope on board and lash me tightly to the mast . . Bind me in coils of rope.
  • Sir, we wouldn’t dream of roping you like a wild horse
  • Here where the fires burn...
  • This is witchery... but pleasant. Soothing.
  • Come, Odysseus. Odysseus, come . . .
  • Here where the stars glow . . . 
  • *He wails and moans as the ship passes the island and the music dies away in the distance.*
  • Some time ago. You passed out.
  • Is it over?
