Here’s another storyboarding assignment. This one, we were given a fable, and told to make a faithful modern interpretation of it. The rules were:
- The characters don’t have to be animals, but they must maintain the characteristics of the animals given.
- The story must be faithful in spirit and in moral to the original – no fractured fairy tales.
- It does not have to be slavish to the original dialogue, and there’s plenty of room for re-interpretation.
- Try to flesh the story out.
So I’m going to present my storyboards without comment, followed by the original fable prompt. Then I’ll talk about what worked and what didn’t.
