Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • My talent is no gift from the gods, it is all me.
  • Zues: HELP!
  • Monster: Come back here
  • Rising action
  • You can never claim yourself to be better than a god because you're a mere mortal
  • Rising action
  • I've challenged you to a contest to see whos really better
  • I accept
  • There was once a talented spinner named Arachne, her skills rivaled the gods. As praise for her work grew, so did her pride, like how she would compare herself to a god. 
  • Climax
  • How dare you insult the gods! I shall curse you!
  • One day a very elderly woman came to her and said that she should never claim herself to be better than the gods. But Arachne only laughed.
  • Falling action
  • The old lady turns out to be Athena, the god of crafts and wisdom. She challenges Arachne to a spinning contest. Arachne surprised accepted the challenge.
  • Resolution 
  • The contest begins with the citizens being the judge. Athena's tapestry pictures the gods as overpowering, while Arachne's was the total opposite. She pictured the god's life as dramatic and improper.
  • When Athen saw Arachne's mocking tapestry, she knew it was better. Furious and enraged Athena cursed Arachne and turned her into a beast with hair growing out of her skin along with arms. 
  • NOO!
  • She respected her though and give her a single thread continuing to grow from her belly. Athena turned Arachne into the first ever spider so that she can spin forever, recognizing her talent and respecting it.
