Poem Storyboard

In storyboard we had to take a poem and create a storyboard of it. We could be as creative as we wanted.


The Spangled Pandemonium
Is missing from the zoo.
He bent the bars the barest bit,
And slithered glibly through.

He crawled across the moated wall.
He climbed the mango tree,
And when his keeper scrambled up,
He nipped him on the knee.

To all of you a warning
Not to wander after dark,
Or if you must make very sure
You stay out of the park.

For the Spangled Pandemonium
Is missing from the zoo,
And since he nipped his keeper
He would just as soon nip you!

Character Design:

Original Beat Board:

I followed the poem closely and didn't come up with anything really creative at first.

Final Storyboard:

I really had fun with this. This storyboard was pinned up on the wall and another classmate had to be able to follow the story and pitch it, called a reverse pitch. If the classmate had trouble "reading it", then many things would have to be fixed for the final. The person who read mine had no problem following the story, and everyone got a laugh that I put cameos of me and my two friends drawing animals at the zoo, which made me happy haha. She even knew it was us (: My professor told me to edit a few things, like panels two and three should be angled to match panel four (I did that in Photoshop), and to add in panel twenty to show my other friend and I running off away from the creature, leaving my other friend behind to get eaten. "Don't worry Alex it's just a cartoon," my professor said.
