Storyboard Text

  • There are only four survivors from the shipwreck from the previous night and their boat is small and the waves are rough and they fear of capsizing. 
  • The chef and the correspondant begin to bicker about being saved as they slowly inch towards shore
  • A seagull lands on the captains head, they are all insulted by this because the birds are at such peace while they themselves are struggling, they cannot swat the bird away because the sudden movement would make the boat flip. (eventaully the captain does swat the bird away) 
  • After hours and days of rowing the captain sees a lighthouse in the distance. Although the chef is skeptical of this the men shore towards the lighthouse anyway itching the be saved. When they grow closer the realize it is abandoned and they aren't going to be saved
  • The captain sees a man on the shore. They gesture and wave to the man hoping for the best, and they even think they are spotted by the man. The more they inch closer the more people appear, even possible a boat to rescue them. But, sadly, before they reach shore everything goes black and their hopes once again are defeated.
  • The captain says they should try to run the surf while they still have the energy, eventually the boat capsizes and they are submerged into the icy water and they find themselves swimming for their lives to shore pulling their boat behind.
