These are pictures of both my finished final storyboards that I’ve created for my A2
music video. I’ve made two because there were some particular scenes that weren’t added
to the first one and some scenes where I’ve described in a little more detail. So I’ve
made two to sort of support each other and to make it quite clear what I hope to portray
within my music video.
These are the first two scenes from both storyboards that I’ve decided to start the music
video off. At the very beginning it starts off with a slow fade in to me walking to Olivia
while dragging a wooden chair that I intend to use and sit on when I get to her. The first
scene is taken from my back and is tracking me throughout the walk to Olivia. Then the
next scene is a long, panning shot of me still walking to her. After I reach her I sit
down on the chair, looking at her with a quite serious, emotional look on my face. After
this there’s then another fade in to the beginning of the song, this is where the song
starts and I start singing. While I’m singing the camera is taking a close, mid shot of
me, centrally framing me throughout it all.
Following that scene would be this one above where the camera starts arcing around both
Olivia and I while I’m still singing. The arch is quite slow up to a point where when it
reaches my back it stop giving Olivia time to leave her chair that she’s been sitting on
right from the beginning. Once she’s gone the camera arcing continues and stops at a side
view of me. The reason why I wanted the camera to stop at my back is so that when I edit
out the time taken for Olivia to leave her seat it would turn out to be a clear arc around
both of us, creating that illusion of her disappearing.
The next scene after this is basically of both Olivia and I walking down the pavement
together, the camera is tracking us as we move down. Olivia then pushes me with force and
as a result I’m sent flying, even while this is happening the camera will still track me,
leaving Olivia out of that scene. When I come to a halt and I turn around the camera pans
along with me and there no sign of Olivia. Its then after this scene that I am then seen
through an over-the-shoulder shot through Olivia. The camera then zooms in on me (once
again giving her time to leave the scene) then pans while I get up to move her Olivia’s
seat – at this point in time she’s gone.
While the entire scene of me sitting and singing while facing Olivia until I get up and
through the chair that she’s disappeared from will be playing, there would also be
various scenes of our memories playing in the background with quite a low opacity to
clearly see both of them playing together. These two drawings are one of the many memory
scene being played, the one in the first box is of both Olivia and I walking together in
the rain. The next one is when both of us are sitting on a bench just staring at each
This next memory scene is of Olivia dragging me through an aisle in Tesco while I’m
carrying the carrier bag. This scene would be done with a track
This contains both of us sitting down on a sofa and watching a movie together. The camera
will take this scene with either a mid-shot or a long shot depending on which looks
Within the first box is me trying to teach Olivia how to skate with a cruiser board while
the other is of me entering a class and then waving at her when she turns around. This
scene would start off as a possible over-the-shoulder shot and then track my movements
when I enter the class. Olivia then turns around, sees me then waves back at me – this
could be taken as its own separate scene with her being centrally framed with a mid-shot.
This scene is of Olivia flicking through the various pictures we took together on her
phone through the use of an extreme close-up.
After all these flashbacks as to the wonderful memories I’ve had with Olivia are done I
will then edit it in such a way that once they’ve all been played I will fade it out then
bring it back to what is happening right now (which was the scene in which I threw the
wooden chair out of anger. In this next scene I stand up singing – at this point the
camera pans slowly at my side revealing that Olivia has disappeared from her seat and
reappeared to mine.
Directly after the above scene I start walking towards the camera to cut to the next scene
which is of me walking to the steps only for me to be confronted by Olivia loo king down on
me with a disappointed expression on her face and with her hands crossed. She will then
walk away from the area vanishing from sight – (I plan to do this by staying perfectly
still throughout the entire thing, so when I edit it I’ll overlap certain layers, and
because I’m still it would make overlapping layers much easier to create that vanishing
