Storyboard Text

  • 00:07 "INTRO"
  • Track back from 'ECU/Soft Focus of light flares on rain pouring down windshield' to 'MS Girl and Boy sitting in stalled car, upset at each other, windscreen wipers going'. She gets out of car angrily.
  • 00:38 "2ND KICK DRUM...not exactly heaven" - 00:59 "END CHORUS"
  • 00:22 "I guess it's sort of denial"
  • Follow CU Girl as she slams car door angrily and exits car, hands through her hair frustrated, fighting back tears. She leans on the bonnet, hands crossed.
  • 00:45 - 01:01 WHOLE CHORUS
  • 00:33 "KICK DRUM PRE-CH...not exactly heaven"
  • LS. Suddenly girl looks up, noticing something strange before her, camera TRACKS BACKWARDS (Dolly zoom?) as more smoke swirls, headlights flash and car reverses suddenly, eerie. She starts to step forward, squinting through the smoke, becoming a front-on CU.
  • 00:45 - 01:01 WHOLE CHORUS
  • 01:01 - 01:15 HOOK
  • 01:16 - 01:32 Verse Two
  • 01:16 - 01:32 Verse Two
  • Follow behind Girl then push past to become 'MASTER chorus shot'. 5 'Asian-Takeout' Girls in matching visors, work uniforms and bleached blond bobs it on apple crates with identical noodle boxes frozen in their hands with chopsticks mid mouthful. Chorus hits and they come to life; robotic, mechanical, manufactured.
  • 01:32 - 01:45 PRE-CH
  • 01:47 - 02:02 CHORUS
  • CU Reaction shots of Girl
  • 02:03 - 02:17 HOOK
  • CU Girl tracks backwards as 5 "BOYFRIENDS" emerge from every side and whisk her into the centre of the action. Perhaps one twirls her, then another pushes her forward.
  • 02:17 - 02:33 BRIDGE "Yeah we could go on"
  • LS Slow Dolly Push-In. Girl singing 'talking to boy/sad/disappointed/torn' and dancers in synchronized dancing - small, mechanical movements. And PUNCH IN'S of faces and gesture details. (performance - play with eye-contact to boy VS eyes downcast)
  • 02:26 - 02:46 "END OF BRIDGE - Yeah we could go on - CHORUS We're like kids"
  • CU Boy in car slow push-in, reaction shot. Hearing her. Sad that they're fighting. Gets out of car firmly, to make up (on 1:32 KICK DRUM beat?)
  • 50 FPS MOVI - Begins with OTS then CU profile, camera circles to become two shot as they try to make up but end up arguing and fighting even more. (When we come around, dancers are no longer there...). Flare of car headlights in background.
  • 02:46 - 03:03
  • 50 FPS or even slower? Big Light Fade-Up and Down (slow motion headlight flash?) on key beat of chorus. Girl and Boy continue fighting more intensely and dance partners in background also dance as if in conflict, SLOW MO. More coverage, CUs etc.
  • HOOK
  • Girl and Boy do some sort of choreographed movement in harmony with dancers that communicates their fight through dance. Now dance partners are all showing conflict and tension through movement, pushing and pulling away. SAME COVERAGE.
  • CU Profile, Pan Around, quite tight on girl in car, leaning against window, looking out, singing/thinking to herself, she closes her eyes.
  • Close up girl with eyes closed outside on last "yeah we could go on like this" of BRIDGE. On chorus beat: sudden gust of wind in hair, camera tracks back QUICKLY as the WILD DANCING girls and boys are revealed. In more of a narrow 'line' initially
  • Camera tracks back suddenly...then once in WS she runs forward as dancing intensifies.
  • Twirls, leaps, even more freestyle? Girl free styling in centre, singing with so much heart, freedom and energy. Partner Dancers no longer tied to one another, they dance their own dance. They eventually part out of shot as camera moves into a CU of Girl, dancing on her own. Wildness / inhibition / sparkle in her eye. (CAR is gone? DANCERS throw away their wigs? Are BOYS gone?)
  • Dolly Tracking in to a CU of girl, now dancing on her own as the dancers have parted out of shot. She's smiling.
