Storyboard Text

  • Do I hear footsteps?
  • Who's there...Long live the king!
  • Is that you Bernardo? You've come right on time.
  • It's alright, we're friends of the country.
  • I'll be leaving now. Wait, who's there?
  • You can go home now, Francisco.
  • There is no ghost.
  • I haven't seen it tonight. Listen up, and we'll tell you about it.
  • Tell us, Bernardo, did you see that thing again? Horatio says we're imagining it.
  • At Elsinore Castle in Denmark, an officer named Bernardo comes to replace the watchman Francisco. Because of the dark, the men cannot see each other. However, after both men recognize each other, they relax. Cold and tired from his shift, Francisco prepares to go home.
  • It's terrifying! Who are you?
  • Well, it was night...
  • Shut up! It's coming!
  • As he is about to leave, two men approach the watchmen. It turns out to be Marcellus, another watchman, and Horatio, a friend of prince Hamlet. Marcellus assures Francisco that he can now leave.
  • If I had not seen it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it. It looked just like the king. It's giving me a bad feeling. Wait! Here it comes again!
  • In hushed tones, the two watchmen tell Horatio of the apparition they have seen for the past two nights that resembles the dead king. Horatio is skeptical and does not believe them.
  • Please don't go! I want to speak to you... I must tell Hamlet.
  • While Bernardo attempts to tell the story of the apparition, the ghost suddenly appears. It looks upset. Then it suddenly vanishes.
  • Horatio is terrified and acknowledges that the ghost does resemble the dead king of Denmark. He has a bad feeling about what its appearance could mean for the kingdom. The ghost materializes again.
  • Horatio attempts to speak to it, but the ghost remains silent and disappears again. It becomes dawn. Horatio suggests that they tell Prince Hamlet, the dead king’s son, about the apparition. He believes that if it is really the ghost of King Hamlet, it will not refuse to speak to his beloved son.
