Storyboard Description

In the year of 2055, a company creates a time machine and starts a business, but it isn't no ordinary business, it's a business where they use the time machine to take people back in time to years in the past to shoot animals from from the past. However, one day a man named Eckels comes to the company and goes back to prehistoric times with Travis, his assistant, Lesperance, and two hunters named, Billings and Kramer, to shoot a Tyrannosaurus Rex. When they eventually kill the dinosaur and head back to the time machine, they discover that Eckels went off the path and got mud and dirt on his shoes. They worry about changing history. They clean off his shoes and go back to their timeline, but when they return, they discover that they have changed history and the present by killing one small thing, a butterfly. Eckels found out that he must've stepped on it. He then wishes that they could go back and fix everything. Travis then shoots Eckels to fix the timeline.(Based on the short story by Ray Bradbury.)

Storyboard Text

  • The sign on the wall seemed to quaver under a film of sliding water. Eckels felt his eyelids blink over his stare, and the sign burned in this momentary darkness:
  • We guarantee nothing, except the dinosaurs.
  • A Sound of Thunder
  • Does this safari guarantee I come back alive?
  • TIME SAFARI INC. SAFARIS TO ANY YEAR IN THE PAST YOU NAME THE ANIMAL WE TAKE YOU THERE YOU SHOOT IT
  • They moved slightly across the room, taking their guns with them, toward the Machine, toward the silver metal and the roaring light. First a day and then a night and then a day and then a night, then it was day-night-day-night. A week, a month, a year, a decade! A.D. 2055. A.D. 2019. 1999! 1957! Gone!
  • They fired at the metallic eyelids and the blazing black iris, Like a stone idol, like a mountain avalanche, Tyrannosaurus fell.
  • They let themselves be led along the metal Path. They sank wearily into the Machine cusions. They gazed back at the ruined Monster, the stagnating mound, where already strange reptilian birds and golden insects were busy at the steaming armor. A sound on the floor of the Time Machine stiffened them. Eckels sat there, shivering.
  • It's his shoes! Look at them! He ran off the path! That ruins us! We'll forfeit!
  • He did not move. Eyes shut, he waited, shivering. He heard Travis breathe loud in the room; heard Travis shift his rifle, click the safety catch, and raise the weapon.
  • TYME SEFARI INC. SEFARIS TU ANY YEER EN THE PAST. YU NAIM THE ANIMALL. WEE TAEK YU THAIR. YU SHOOT ITT.
  • Can't we, can't we take it back, can't we make it alive again? Can't we start over? Can't we-
  • There was a sound of thunder.
  • The End
