Storyboard Description

"The Sniper" by Liam O'Flaherthy is a tragic but thrilling shortstory. I use size to demonstrate the intensity and suddenness of the shots. I also use Shapes such as a cloud to tell the reader that he is currently thinking, and Rectangles when the story is narrated, but I also use color to distinguish the characters.
