Storyboard Text

  • Luckly, my father was a brilliant inventor and had used his ability of creation to find a solution to our problem.
  • After my father, Daedalus, was imprisoned by King Minos, I was forced to stay on the Greek island, Crete.
  • The night before our escape,  I began seeing visions sent from the god Apollo.
  • Icarus. Your father is destined to escape from the island. Though, should you interfere by following him on his journey, he will meet his end.
  • Stay on the beach as your father makes his escape and you shall both survive. Do not head my warnings and... well, why don't you see for yourself.
  • Apollo had granted me the chance to see the outcomes my actions would have.
  • In my vision, father had created beautiful wings to use in our escape. At first I was hesitant to leave, thinking about Apollo's warning. Though, I came to my senses. I knew I could not separate from my father.
  • "Ha! Apollo must have been mistaken. We are both fine."  I thought. I believed I was right. Until, of course, the griffin tore my father's wings, leading to him plummeting to his death.
  • Are you coming, son? We must be on our way.
  • It might be that following my father was not the best idea.
  • I was sure that my plan would work, though I had a sense of doubt seeping into my mind.
  • After my first failed attempt, I was now determined to save my father.
  • Fly ahead, father. I want to see your skilled flying.
  • What if the deity was right? What if I can't stay with my father? What if my father dies in reality?
  • I told my father to move ahead, hoping that if I stayed far enough behind I wouldn't jeopardize my father's safety. 
  • If you insist.
  • With these questions still in my mind, I prepared to lift off. But, I didn't even get close.
  • In frustration, I gave up my search for solutions and ignored Apollo and his warning.
  • I give up! I don't care what happens anymore. At least if my father dies he will not have to live a life without me in it.
  •  Out of nowhere, a lightning bolt comes and strikes my father from the sky.
  • On the morning of our departure, I started flying ahead of my father. Soon, I started regretting taking flight and putting my wants before my father.
  • With the fierce heat covering every inch of my body, I sacrificed myself for my father.
  • Slow down.
  • With me rising higher by the second, I could find no way to stop and save my father. That was until I felt the hot sun on my face, the same sun my father told me not to fly to.
  • If I had just listened to Apollo I could have kept both of us alive. Now I shall just be remembered as a foolish boy.
