  1. 1. Medicine Story Board By Katie Norris
  2. 2. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 1, shot 1: Birds eye view medium close up. Natural light used from bedroom windows. Left screen is in colour Right screen is in black and white throughout until later scene. This is the start of the video. Audience is introduced to two main characters who are asleep. Character 1 (left) appears to be wearing a lot of make up and dressed for a party. Character 2 appears to be more natural in her sleep and at peace, but can seen to have been crying at some point. Scene 1, shot 2: Birds eye view medium close up, camera zooms in slowly towards characters faces. Natural light coming in from windows. Scene 1, shot 3: Camera is placed at the end of the bed, medium shot on characters upper body. Camera remains still. Scene 1, shot 4: Camera is in shallow focus on the bedside table medium close up. Girls can be seen next to the tables but are slightly blurred and out of focus. Scene 1, shot 5: Camera remains in position but close up shot is used to indicate what is on the table. Hand comes into shot but camera remains still. The characters awake and open their eyes at the same time. Indicating the start of their day. They lie still until the camera cuts to the next shot. The characters sit up casually and either rub their eyes or stretch to make them waking up look realistic as this is what most people would do. A shot of the table shows that there are some objects on the table. This includes a mobile phone for each character. The close up of the mobiles allows the audience to see that these have a relevance to the characters as they reach for them. Stating that they may be expecting someone to be in contact with them.
  3. 3. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 1, shot 6: Close up of mobile phone from characters perspective. This allows the audience to see that the two characters have plans for today and that the girl on the left is meeting her boyfriend, whilst the girl on the right has a meeting at the hospital. Scene 1, shot 7: Camera is placed at the end of the bed. Remains still whilst the characters move. Shot is a medium long shot. Scene 1, shot 8: Camera is place on the floor. Close up of girls feet. Camera remains still as girls pass. Scene 1, shot 9: Camera remains in place after the girls have walked past for a brief second. Position stays the same. Scene 1, shot 10: Camera has a long shot of the staircase. Remains still. The characters place their phones on the bedside table again and turn to get out of bed. The characters then stand up and walk past/towards the camera whilst the camera stays still. This shot allows us to see character 1 in high heels whilst character 2 has cute girly socks on. A simple shot of the bed to show that the girls have left the room. The staircase allows the audience to know that the scene is now on the landing, and the characters are likely to move out of their rooms.
  4. 4. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 1, shot 11: Camera remains in the same position as in shot 10. Medium long shot. The characters move past the camera and walk down the staircase. The camera remains in position until they reach the bottom. Scene 1, shot 12: Camera is placed at the bottom the stairs at the other end of the hallway. Medium long shot. Scene 1, shot 13: Camera is placed at the entrance of the kitchen. Medium shot, remains in position as girls turn to face object. Scene 1, shot 14: Close up of bottle of alcohol and close up of bottle of tablets and water. Scene 1, shot 15: The camera returns to a medium shot. The characters walk towards the camera as they are about to enter another room. The characters walk into the kitchen and turn to the counter. On the left screen there is a bottle on the counter, on the right screen there is a bottle of tablets with a glass of water next to it. The close up of the alcohol and tablets lets the audience think about what relevance these objects might have. The song lyrics at this point may give them an idea that the term medicine is being used for drink as well as actual medicine, (in the form of tablets) . Character 1 can be seen taking a sip of alcohol straight from the bottle which may show her to be a lazy type of person due to not pouring it into a glass. The girl on the right takes her tablets and uses a nice fresh glass of water to help swallow them. Making her appeal less lazy. Audience may begin to sympathize with character 2.
  5. 5. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 1, shot 16: Camera is positioned facing the exit to the kitchen, shallow focus on the bottle and tablets. Character become out of focus as they walk off. The characters place their items back on the counter and walk off into the hallway. Scene 1, shot 17: Camera positioned behind the character for an over- the- shoulder shot which allows the audience to seethe characters face as well as their reflection. Medium long shot. Scene 1, shot 18: Camera is positioned in the same place as shot 17. Medium shot. Scene 1, shot 19: Camera remains in the same position as shot 18. Medium shot. Scene 1, shot 20: Medium close up of the characters reflection in the mirror. Camera placed behind character. The characters are now in the bathroom and are looking at their reflection. This allows the audience to have a clear view of the characters and gives them the impression that they see that the character sees. Character 1 turns on radio and begins to apply make up whilst dancing to some music character 2 checks face and begins to clean it, looking quite sad. The characters brush their teeth. Continuing to show that they may be getting ready to go somewhere (also shown by the text messages in the previous shots.) The reflection of the girls, shows a before and after image of when they have finished getting ready. It also gives the characters a chance to express a facial expression to let the audience know how they may be feeling.
  6. 6. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 1, shot 21: Camera is positioned in the same place as shot 20. Medium shot. Camera remains still as characters move. The characters walk away from the mirror and exit the bathroom, heading back to the bedroom. Scene 1, shot 22: Camera positioned on the floor level with characters feet. Medium close up. Scene 1, shot 23: Medium shot of upper body. Camera remains still. Scene 1, shot 24: Camera is placed at the top of the stairs. Medium Long shot. Scene 2, shot 25: Long shot of characters walking. Camera is positioned on the opposite side of the road. The characters put their shoes on. Character 1 wears trainers whilst character two wears pretty dolly shoes. Representing a more innocent persona for the second character compared to the one on the left. (Takes pride in appearance.) Both characters put a jacket on. Character 1 has a more edgy party jacket (possibly leather) whilst character 2 has a more feminine casual jacket. Once again clothes are used to emphasis the two different characters lifestyles. The characters walk past the camera and walk downstairs and open the door to leave. The characters walk to their next destination. The long shot allows the audience to establish that the girls are continuing their journey. This long shot also enables the audience to see what the characters are fully wearing, which once again helps them form a view point.
  7. 7. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 2, shot 26: Camera is positioned on opposite side of the road. Long shot which characters enter and proceed to bus stop. The characters can be seen waiting for a bus. Scene 2, shot 27: Camera positioned in the same place as previous shot. Bus comes into the shot. Leaves the shot after 3-4 seconds. Scene 2, shot 28: Medium shot of upper body. Bus seats can be seen in the background. Scene 2, shot 29: Long shot of the bus stop where girls arrive. Tracking shot of characters walking towards destination. Scene 3, shot 30: Close up of signs. Still shot. Characters walk past the sign as the camera stays in position. The characters can be seen getting on to the bus and then it drives away. Character 1 puts her bag down next to her seat, character 2 places it on her lap and looks out of the window. The characters get off the bus and begin to walk. The sign posts allow the audience to realise where each character has arrived at. Character 1 can be seen going to a woodland/park whilst character 2 can be seen going into a hospital.
  8. 8. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 3, shot 31: Long shot which is also used as an establishing shot. Character 1 sits down on grass and appears to be waiting for someone as she looks around and stares at her phone. Character 2 can be seen waiting in a waiting room of hospital. Scene 3, shot 32: Camera remains in same position as a new male character enters on the left screen, which then goes into a medium shot. On the right the camera then goes to a medium tracking shot of girl walking down a corridor into a room. Camera goes the medium close up as character 1 greets boyfriend and character 2 greets a man who appears to be a doctor. Scene 3, shot 33: Medium long shot of couple on the left. Medium long shot of conversation between doctor and character 2 on the right. Camera switches to close up of characters faces as they have a conversation. Scene 3, shot 34: Over-shoulder-shot of character 1’s face. Close up of a letter on the right screen. Scene 3, shot 35: Close up of characters faces. Left screen is now black and white Right screen is now in colour. Character 1 greets her boyfriend. Character 2 shakes hand with a man who appears to be a doctor. This makes the audience wonder what is going to happen next, as we are not quite sure what both people are meeting for. This is the start of the disruption to the narrative. Character 1 can be seen to look confused, as her boyfriend appears to be arguing with her. Character 2 looks concerned and worried, the doctor looks stern and serious. The audience should realise by the facial expression of character 1 that she is now unhappy and may have broken up with her boyfriend. The letter on the right screen shows the audience that character 2’s cancer has been terminated. The facial expressions of character 1 are now sad rather than happy and characters 2 are now happy rather than sad. The change of colour resembles the change from happy to sad, almost as if the characters have swapped lifestyles.
  9. 9. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 4, shot 36: Medium shot of the characters returning home. Scene 5, shot 37: Camera is placed at the bottom of the hallway. Medium long shot. Scene 5, shot 38: Medium shot from behind the characters. Scene 5, shot 39: medium shot from the side of the characters. Scene 5, shot 40: Long shot of both characters. Positioned on the side of the characters. Character 1 still appears to be upset as she returns home. Character 2 appears joyful. Both characters open their cupboards and look inside. Both characters take tablets out of the cupboard and stare at them. This makes the audience question that they are going to do with them. This returns the narrative to a brief equilibrium again. Character 1 swallows a large amount of pills whilst character 2 bins the bottle whilst appearing to be happy. Character 1 is distressed. The audience then may begin to sympathize more the character 1 than 2. The characters return home. Character 1 is crying whilst character 2 appears to be happy and smiling.
  10. 10. Shot type/ Camera movement Narrative Scene 5, shot 41: Medium long shot. Camera remains still. But is placed at a different angle as the characters move around. Scene 5, shot 42: Camera is close up to characters faces. Scene 6, shot 43: Birds eye view of characters. Long shot. Scene 6, shot 44: Close up of characters faces. Birds eye view shot. Character 1 drinks more alcohol and sits on the bed. Character two holds a picture of her friends. This is to demonstrate she is happy she gets to live longer to spend time with them, whilst character 1 drinks to use alcohol as a form of drowning her sorrows. Both characters are in a similar position to at the start of the video. Character 1 clutches a bottle in her hand and her eyes are open with make up stains down her face. We can see that character 1 has sadly passed away from an overdose of tablets and drink whilst character 2 awakens smiling. This is the end of the video. This then allows the audience to think about the moral of my video and see the consequences of what can happen. Character 1 begins to mess up her room in anger whilst character 2 dances around her room happily.
