Activity2.18 Alternative endings


First view both of the Crowfield animated GIFs below then compare and contrast the two different storyboards. The three common elements of the storylines are a crow, a cornfield and a bang. However, the endings have been modified to suit different audiences.

a) The first ending makes reference to the death of the artist Vincent Van Gogh and to his final painting, Wheatfield with crows (storyboard).


b) The second version is directed at younger children and takes a more light-hearted approach (storyboard).

Crowfield 1
