Below is a very basic storyboard which will provide a draft detail of how the short story will be created in animation.
In the first scene Balthier will enter the scene and walk towards the sword which is stuck in the stone. Over the next few scenes Balthier will attempt to pull the sword from the stone. These scenes will be used to express detailed character animaton using body language and facial expressions. Balthier will eventually kick the stone and simply cause the stone to break in half revealing the full sword.
