Storyboard Text

  • Beware the Ides of March
  • "He is a dreamer."
  • "Beware the ides of March."
  • Brutus reads a fake letter
  • Peace, Freedom, and Liberty!
  • Death of Caesar
  • "Et tu, Brute?"
  • This scene is meant to depict when the soothsayer tries to warn Caesar about the 15th of March. Cassius and Casca are seen in the background conspiring about how they will attack Caesar. Julius is looking off into a different direction to show how disinterested he is towards the soothsayer.
  • Brutus vs. Antony
  • "Had you rather Caesar were living, and die slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all freemen?"
  • "I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambitious?"
  • This scene is meant to represent Brutus receiving the letter from a "towns person." The dark shadows that appear are meant to symbolize the conspiracy and how opening the letter has fully convinced Brutus to join the conspiracy to kill Caesar.
  • Caesar's Ghost
  • "ay at Phillipi"
  • The dark men in cloaks are meant to signify the men in the conspiracy and the two men stabbing Caesar are Brutus and Cassius. The dark sky sets a dark, dramatic scene that develops an ominous and menacing tone.
  • Death of Brutus and Cassius
  • "Caesar, now be still; I killed not thee with half so good a will."
  • "O, coward that I am, to live so long, to see my best friend ta'en before my face!"
  • This scene shows the two speeches that were said during Caesar's funeral. The lines spoken by Brutus are introduced to support the idea that Brutus killed Caesar truly to avoid tyranny and believed that he was saving Rome. The smaller crowd is meant to show that Antony had much more of an influence on the people. He used irony and proved that Caesar had no bad intentions.
  • This scene is showing the ghost of Caesar visiting Brutus. This scene is important because it for shadows what is to come at Phillipi.    
  • This scene is meant to show the differences between the deaths of Cassius and Brutus. Brutus takes his own life upon realizing that all the people around him are cold and manipulative. He wanted what was best for Rome and his intentions were never greedy unlike Cassius. Cassius accepts and begs for death out of grief and fear of losing the fight. They are each other's polar opposites.
