Ben's Dream

Storyboard Text

  • I've always had a dream. A dream of playing the piano.
  • Piano Center of Chicago
  • Every time I sit down at a piano, I get transported to another world. Words can't really describe it. It's like-
  • It was certainly a tough case today, but Mr. Andrews is free! We really-
  • Ben! Pay attention to your father when he's talking!
  • Oh! Sorry, Mom.
  • Sometimes I get carried away. My parents catch me at dinner tapping the table as if I were playing a piano. Both my parents are lawyers and run a firm together, so they don't understand much about music. They want me to study law. I don't know how to tell them the truth, and about my dream.
  • Son, what's going on? This has been happening these past couple nights.
  • Tell us the truth! Please.
  • Tell us right now!
  • My anger was building. It became too much, and finally spilled out.
  • You want the truth! I want to be a musician! You will never understand!
  • I walked up the stairs, furious.
  • I got to my room and tried to sleep off the anger. Tomorrow would be a better day, I told myself.
  • The next day, I got to school and went to the music room. My friends Jacob and Lucy were there. I began playing a piece I was working on for them.
  • That was awesome!
  • That was beautiful Ben!
  • You know, there's a talent show coming up! You should sign up!
  • Yeah, you totally should!
  • The sign up sheet is on the board over there! Think about it?
  • Yeah, you totally should!
  • The sign up sheet is on the board over there! Think about it?

  • I practiced that piece everysingle day. It was the last day of practice before the talent show, and I had forgotten something very important. I had to tell my parents!
  • As I walked home, I was getting more and more anxious by the second.
  • It was good. I have to tell you guys something.
  • What is it son?
  • Hi Honey! How was school?
  • I've entered my school's talent show, and I'm playing piano! There's nothing you can do to stop me!
  • What!
  • No! You can't go! we forbid it!
  • With determination, I ran to the school theater. Ready to play my heart out!
  • Once I got to the theater that talent show started. Once it was my turn I sat down, and began to play.
  • After I finished the crowd roared with cheers. I ran backstage and was in awe at who I saw...
  • That was magnificent!We're getting a piano at home!
  • My Parents!
  • That was beautiful! I'm so sorry we didn't believe in you!
  • Every day after school now, my parents are the first ones to hear my new pieces, and finally accept me for who I am. A musician.
  • The End
