Story boardsStory boards are used by directorsto give them a brief outline of howthe scene should be filmed. It givesa picture of the shot, and a briefdescription next to it.We thought it would be a goodidea to make one so that we coulduse it as a rough guide. We gottogether and drew out the scenes,and put them into this PowerPoint.To the right is an example of atypical story board.On the following slides is our storyboard, we used power point so thatwe could display our ideas clearly.Unfortunately, none of us werevery good at drawing, as you willsoon see.
SHOT ONEThis is an establishing shot, toestablish the setting, and otherfactors. This will be shot froma field just outside of thewoods so we can get a goodview of them. We may also usea time lapse to show theconcept of time passing so wecould see the clouds movingover the woods. This wouldalso act as a title sequencealong with some other shots,as credits fade in and out overit to show who was involved inthe production of the clip.
SHOT TWOThe second shot (or series ofshots) would be different shotsof the woods and the trees,with the camera panning toshow the different angles ofthe woods. This wouldcontinue to act as the titlesequence and establishing thescene.
SHOT THREEThis shot introduces Grady intothe scene. With an extreme closeup of his feet, and possibly the feetof the dog he is walking, hence hisreason for being in the woods. Thecamera would be a feet level andmove with Gradys feet to followthe match on action rule.
SHOT FOURThis shot moves from the thirdshot so that we can focus onGrady’s face as to introduce hisappearance to the viewer. He hashis headphones in whilst he iswalking his dog to show he is un-aware to his surroundings andwhat might be about to happen.
SHOT FIVEThis shot, shows someonewatching Grady walk his dog frombehind a tree, hidden in the dark.This introduces him as theantagonist, as he will be wearingblack clothes to represent evil.
SHOT SIXThis shot (possibly the worstdrawing in history) shows thatGrady is starting to think someoneis watching him after hearing anoise. He then looks in thedirection were the antagonist was,we would have minimal cutsduring this part as to buildsuspense.
SHOT SEVENThis shot shows that the antagonistbegins to follow Grady, althoughthis may not be the exact shot weuse, as I think we could build moresuspense by using over theshoulder and point of view shots.
SHOT EIGHTThis shot (yet again a bad drawing)shows the shot when Grady realiseshe is being followed. Again we maynot use this exact shot, as this isjust a rough guide to use when weare filming. This is a close up of theantagonist before the chase scenestarts.
SHOT NINEThis shot represents the chasescene, we would have more thatjust this single shot in the finalclip. This is a possibility of a midshot showing both of thecharacters on screen and showsthey are engaged in a chase.
SHOT TENThis shot is the end of the clip.Grady trips and falls in to a patchof light, to represent he is innocentand the protagonist, this is a POVshot from the antagonist POV.
