Storyboard Text

  • The scene begins with Abigail walking to Tituba's house. She goes there in hopes that Tituba knows some spells from Barbados, to help her.
  • Tituba asks Abigail what her unnexpected visit is about, and Abigail tells her that she has a favour to ask.
  • Abigail explains to Tituba that she had an affair with John Proctor. Tituba is shocked to hear it, because this is against the norms of their society.
  • "This is not a good thing, young Abigail. You have to tame your desires before any of the townspeople get hold of this!
  • "Tituba, I have known John Proctor in a way that only his wife has. I cannot see him because of Goody Proctor, and Tituba my desire grows day after day."
  • The scene will begin with a fade in effect. Shot: The scene will be a medium shot with negative space, of Abigail walking away from the camera towards Tituba's house. Camera Movement: A pan will happen at the beginning to give a glimpse of the surroundings. Music: Instrumental music that starts soft but builds up quickly.
  • The camera zooms in on Abigail's face, so that the audience can get a better perception on how she is feeling. She starts to make demands that Tituba should help her by casting spells.
  • Are there any spells you remember from Barbados? They might be helpful to me, since neither of us want to see my heart get broken. Even the other girls crave to be with married men, and all this frustration is not doing them any good. I think you should help us Tituba.
  • Camera Movement: The camera will track Abigail into Tituba's house. Shot: Medium shot, showing both character's and some of the surroundings. Angle: Eye level. Music: There is no music in this scene. Abigail: "Hello Tituba, I come with a favour to ask."
  • As the camera zoom in on Tituba, the audience see's that she does not apprecaite Abigal demanding in such a way. However, since she does care about Abigail, she does suggest a few spells that she knows.
  • Shot: Both characters are shown at the same time, because a medium shot is used. Angle: Tituba and Abigail are both filmed from eye level, so that the audience feels more engaged in the scene, making them feel like they are a part of it. Camera Movement: still. Music: There is no music in this scene, only dialogue.
  • Abigail leaves Tituba's house. Abigail is very pleased and excited, since she has been concealing her desires for a long time. Tituba on the other hand, is having an emotional argument within. She does not know whether to be excited, or worried as for what is to come.
  • Camera Movement: The camera slowly zooms into Abigail's face. Shot: The shot is a close up of Abigail's face, to reveal more of her personal emotions. Angle: The close up is filmed from a slight low angle, which suggests that Abby possesses more power since she is making demands. Music/ Sound Effects: There is some soft drumming noises in the background, which will eventually build up to add suspense.
  • Camera Movement: The camera turns to face Tituba. Shot: The shot is a close up of Tituba, showing that she feels uneasy about Abigail's demands. Angle: She is filmed from a tiny bit of a high angle, to show that Abby's demands have power. However, it is not too much of a high angle, since Tituba also has power in the situation. Music: The drumming sound effect builds up as Tituba speaks.
  • Camera Movement: The camera tracks backwards continuously, as Abby walks towards it. Shot: Long shot. Angle: Angle of destiny, showing the surroundings, including Tituba. The canted angle creates feelings of uncertainty, even though Abigial is determined. Music: Intense loud music with lots of instruments.
