Storyboard Text

  • How about we celebrate wiining at the big baseball game with pizza night?
  • EXPOSITION: Maple Street live their normal lives before the "monsters" came
  • Dude, that home run you hit was so awesome! We totally beat that other team!
  • Is my bike ready now, Dad?
  • Okay
  • Not yet, Alex. Why don't you play with some of your toys inside while I finish fixing it?
  • The computer's busted.
  • Hi Steve. Did you see something fall from the sky?
  • CONFLICT: the electricity is gone on Maple Street
  • My phone's dead and it won't charge.
  • I sure did, Don. Possibly a meteor, but I didn't hear any crash or anything.
  • Lights out at my house too!
  • Are we going to stand here and listen to some science fiction?
  • RISING ACTION: Tommy and AJ explain about the aliens that turned off the power.
  • It's the truth! The aliens, just as the Alien Hunt 101 predicted, aliens are here on earth.
  • Mr. Brand, please don't leave. Whatever was in that ship that landed here doesn't want us to leave. That's why they shut everything off
  • RISING ACTION: The people accuse Les Goodman
  • I have nothing to do with the electricity failure and letme tell you people, you're starting something that's a nightmare.
  • How could your car start and I know you wait for something at night.
  • Yeah Goodman!
  • Let's get them!
  • You know, Tommy and AJ are the ones who knew about these aliens the most on this street. Could it be them who are the aliens who shut off the power? Something tells me it's them.
  • CLIMAX: The people suspect Tommy and AJ are responcible for the black out an attack them as a mob.
  • But they knew!
  • Uh oh! RUN!!!!
  • Stop it! they're little boys. And nobody picks on my AJ.
  • Sure. That Maple Street will probably kill of each and every one of each other. All we have to do is wait. The world is full of Maple Streets.
  • This Maple Street is no different. I turn off all electricity, turn on one car, and already they're attacking four residents.
  • The concept in each location is quite familiar. They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find and come to collusions based on behavior and evidence they find to be "weird" or out of the ordinary.
  • Do you now see a similar pattern?
  • RESOLUTION: Two aliens are responsible for the power failure
  • Shall we call it a night and take a break?
