Storyboard Text

  • Chapter 1: The Greenlight
  • Chapter 2: The Eyes of TJ Eckleburg
  • Chapter 3: Gatsby's House
  • I made the scene of Gatsby reaching for the greenlight at the end of chapter 1. The greenlight is a important symbol because it represented Gatsby's hope and dreams, and how soon he will have it at his finger tips. 
  • Chapter 4: Gatsby's Yellow car
  • I recreated the eyes of TJ Eckleburg. It represented a god-like presence that sees all the good, and all the bad that goes on inside the valley of ashes. This is important because Tom's mistress lives in the valley of ashes.
  • Chapter 5: The Clock Falling
  • I recreated the scene when everyone was pulling up to Gatsby's house for one of his parties. I believe that Gatsby's house symbolizes his love for Daisy, but at the same time it also represents how lonely he is because he lives in it alone. 
  • Chapter 6: Dan Cody
  • I recreated the scene of Nick hanging out with Gatsby for the first time in his yellow car. Gatsby's yellow car represents the American Dream and how he is spending his money on crazy extravagant things. This is important because later in the book Tom's mistress gets hit by it. 
  • I recreated the scene of when Gatsby finally meets up with Daisy again for the first time in years. When Gatsby drops the clock in this scene it represents the time he has lost with Daisy, and how he's catching up with her.
  • I recreated the scene of Gatsby and Dan Cody on a boat at lake Superior. Dan Cody plays an important role in Gatsby's life because he gave Gatsby his name Jay Gatsby, and taught him the proper way of acting.
