Storyboard Text

  • What a dreadful life I've chosen!
  • Maybe I *cough* can just sleep it off *cough*
  • ...Gregor?
  • Mother?
  • I can't afford to be late!
  • Gregor wakes up feeling awfully sick. The room looks blurry, giving a dreamlike uncertainty. His voice is strong and deep. We hear cars going by, but otherwise the room is silent. The room is well lit--Gregor is not something we should fear in the dark.
  • Useless! Look what you've done to this family!
  • Gregor rolls back over, weary. He is visibly sick, with sweats and heavy coughing. When he speaks now, his voice is soft, and barely audible. Zoom in to get a better sense of how off color and sickly he is. Have him cough right into the camera. From off screen, an elderly, raspy female voice is heard.
  • I should have left you outside that night.
  • A soft violin can be heard in the background. Gregor's voice is hard to make out. He immediately shoots up when he hears his mothers voice. He looks at the clock and is startled.
  • Soft, classical music plays, as if for a ball. We shift perspectives from Herr Samsa to Gregor as if they were dancing. The scene is played in slow motion to highlight the absurdity. Gregor's hissing can be heard every time he's in focus.
  • Herr Samsa speaks softly, with reflection. Miss Samsa is hysterical, and screaming at the top of her lungs. The music cuts and all that is heard are sobs and Gregor's slow scuttling away.
  • MY BABY!
