Shirley the Shooter

Storyboard Text

  • Hi. My name is Shirley. Sadly this was my house in a hooverville that my family and I lived in for a while when our money, lives, and identity was stripped away from us. I'm here to tell you about how my life became what it is today. But it's not something I'm proud of to say the least.
  • Before the crash of the stock market, and before we lost everything, we lived here. My mom and dad worked in the factory, and they were alive. It was before I had to take care of my five siblings all by myself. It was before our lives fell apart.
  • It all started with a horrible accident. I was just looking out for my family. That's when he attacked me. I was just protecting myself and he fell back and smashed his head, and he was gone.
  • What do I do?!?!
  • He looked like a rich man, so I took his wallet, his keys, and eventually his money and home. I wanted a better life for my family and there was a way for me to get it. I packed up my siblings and fled our hooverville home to a new one where food was abundant.
  • That looks delicious!
  • I'm so hungry!
  • I saw that one horrible event as a blessing for my family even though it haunted me for years. I wanted to help other families in need. That's when I became Shirley the Shooter. I killed the rich to share their wealth. It's the worst and best thing I ever did.
  • I'm so sorry!
  • NOOO!!!
  • I ended up helping so many people and got them back on their feet for a price I was willing to pay. I wouldn't take anything back I just wish there would have been another way.
  • No problem.
  • Thank you for your generosity and kindness!
  • Thank you!
  • We can't thank you enough!
