This storyboard does not have a description.
Narrator: Hello, I am here to tell you the story of Hamlet. His father, the former CEO of the company called Denmark, has recently died and a man name Claudius has taken his place. Hamlet, however, believes that Claudius had something to do with his father's death. At this point, he does not know anything definitively, but he suspects Claudius is up to no good.
Claudius: I know we are all mourning the death of our former CEO, Hamlet, but let's continue working hard. Gertrude here has given me the amazing opportunity to continue as acting CEO. So let's celebrate rather than mourn!
Narrator: Remember, Hamlet suspects Claudius of causing his father's death. However, Claudius is responsible for Hamlet's job, as well as his mother's job, so Hamlet does not want to risk being wrong. Therefore, he stays silent, even though everything that Claudius says is enraging.
Claudius: Now onto other business. Laertes, I read your email about your request to go on that business trip to France. Polonius, would it be alright for him to go? I know Laertes is one of your most trusted employees and I would hate for you to be buried under work while he is gone.
Polonius: Of course! Laertes is like a son to me, but this experience abroad will be good for him. Don't worry about the work! Claudius: Fantastic! Laertes, you can go immediately. Now Hamlet, son...
Hamlet, muttering to himself: Don't call me son... Narrator: Hamlet's father was close to Claudius, so he feels comfortable calling Hamlet "son." However, Hamlet does not see Claudius as a father figure, but he also does not want to say anything too rude to his boss. Therefore, he only mutters quietly when in reality, he wants to yell at Claudius.
