Storyboard Text

  • You're so great!
  • I know ...
  • Beware the Ides of March...
  • He is a dreamer!
  • Yet I love him so ...
  • 'Caesar' why should that name be sounded more than yours?
  • Julius Caesar, the audacious and mighty general had just returned victorious from a perilous battle. The war conqueror became known throughout Rome for his triumph and was praised  for his daring duty. Soon, Caesar rose to an exalted status, however as his red carpet grew, so did his arrogance. 
  • !!!
  • One fateful day, amongst all the celebration and excitement of the bustling crowds, an ominous, echoing voice haunted Caesar. The voice belonged to a soothsayer who warned the haughty man - "BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH". However Caesar simply ignored the caution, behaving in a hubristic manner. 
  • Et tu Brute?
  • Cassius, a cunning and convincing man discusses with Brutus, a loyal and honourable man about his views on Caesar's sudden popularity. Gradually Cassius plants seeds of doubt into Brutus' mind, clearly hinting at the idea that Caesar does not deserve this attention and someone (Brutus) needs to stop him. Although Brutus tries his best to keep Cassius out of his head, it becomes evident that his words start to bother him. 
  • Yet Brutus is an 'honourable' man ...
  • To convince Brutus further to pull Caesar down from the glory, Cassius plots a deceptive scheme. Cassius decides to send distressing and concerned letters to Brutus from the 'citizens of Rome', pleading him to stop Caesar from taking charge and requesting him, to lead Rome.
  • Brutus, after reading the persuasive letter from 'Rome' (actually Cassius) is convinced that Caesar is not the correct man to lead the country. Cassius' plan to tear the two friends apart worked.  Brutus and Cassius join together to plot against Caesar. On the Ides of March, they stab Caesar, killing him.
  • Mark Antony, a fellow general and friend of Caesar speaks to the public at Caesar's funeral. He tells them about all the virtuous deeds Caesar has done. After murdering Caesar, Brutus and Cassius explained why they killed them, making it seem like the right thing to do. However Antony, mocks them and says they were unjust to kill a noble man.
