Storyboard Description

Mark Beaulieu using this awful software to outline the conflict of The Old Man and the Sea

Storyboard Text

  • Man vs. Society
  • It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact.
  • Man vs. Nature
  • I must remember to eat the tuna so I can stay strong.
  • Man vs. Man
  • Let him think that I am more man than I am and I will be so.
  • The old man, Santiago, has had 84 days of no luck with fishing. The other fisherman make fun of him for this, so to change his luck he goes far out into the sea, but loses his catch.
  • Man vs. Society
  • But man is not made for defeat. Man can be destroyed, but not defeated.
  • Santiago had to fight to catch the giant marlin and stay healthy and survive out on the water at the same time, eating tuna, flying fish, and dolphin.
  • Man vs. Nature
  • Santiago struggled to reel in and catch the marlin, using all of his stength to catch it.
  • Man vs. Man
  • What beat you...
  • However, despite being beaten by the sea, Santiago still wants to adventure. He may have been physically beaten, but he was not emotionally beaten.
  • Santiago must protect his catch in shark infested waters, fighting against the sharks' natural instincts.
  • Santiago could not fend off the sharks, despite defending with a harpoon and, after losing that, a knife tied to an oar.
  • Nothing...I went out too far.
