Storyboard Text

  • The Red Death had become widespread across the land. Prince Prospero had enclosed his castle to protect his people. One night he hosted a masquerade and thus the story begins.
  • There were 7 rooms in the castle in which the party was hosted, each decorated with a single color. From east to west, the rooms were blue, purple, green, orange, white, violet, and ebony. 
  • The eeriest room of all was the ebony room. Unlike the other rooms where even the windows were stained the same color as the other furnishings, the ebony room contained windows of a scarlet hue like that of blood.
  • A large ebony clock stood tall with its large pendulum swinging. When the clock hit the hour, a clear, loud, and deep sound beckoned stopping everyone throughout the castle. 
  • With the 12th ring of the clock, rumors had spread of a mysterious masked figure.  
  • DONG!  x12
  • With Prospero's first sight of him, he was filled with terror. The figure was stained with blood and dressed in black resembling the figure of death itself.
  • Then, Prospero became reddened with rage, commanding everyone to unmask him. Everyone afraid, let him walk right by from room to room, east to west until he reached the ebony room. Prospero had become so enraged he went to take on the masked figure alone with a dagger drawn.
  • With a loud screech, Prospero was found dead, and before the clock struck 1, everyone was dead throughout the halls of the castle.
  • AHHH!!
