Storyboard Text

  • Panel 1
  • Panel 2
  • Panel 3
  • Fade-in on a man walking down a dock, as we watch him enter a simple looking boat and begin to paddle off to the right of the screen.
  • Panel 4
  • We do a quick jump-cut, and the sun is no beginning to set. The man is now paddling through a busy Thames River. The camera continues to track to the right as we see the man pass through the extensive river traffic. We see Big Ben pass in the background to establish our location.
  • Panel 5
  • The canoe leaves the shot from the bottom left corner, and the camera finishes it's long tracking shot, and begins to focus in on The Nellie. 
  • Panel 6
  • We get an establishing shot of the 5 men and their conversation slowly begins to get louder as the camera pans in. The camera begins to jump around to each man's face as they say their dialogue. 
  • The camera begins to zoom in on Marlow, as he appears to be spacing out and remembering his journeys in the Congo. His mind drifts here as the conversation shifts towards sailing and voyages.
  • Marlow snaps out of it once the director of companies regathers his attention. He apologizes and the men continue to talk.
