Storyboard Text

  • My actor Mpho is introduced to the audience in a derelict abandoned room (no fire) the room is lit from above to create and exaggerate and emphesize shadows of the rubble on the floor.
  • Mpho dances aggressively and robotically whilst the lyrics repeat "i am the greatest", the words of Muhammad Ali,however the words are said in w white american male voice, the song already has controversial elements. Mpho continues to dance and sing to the lyrics, this is a mid shot.
  • The dancing will continue and Mpho will continue to dance to the rhythm of the song "I am the greatest" by logic, shots show an abandoned location from close up, mid shot and long shot angles. Mpho wears a clean black jumper and bright blue spotless, trainers. his clothes and passion suggest that he believes that he actuallyis the greatest.
  • Mpho moves from location to another showcasing street art and reverse shots of movement up and down stairs, close ups of his shoes
  • In the darkness, Mpho dances in a dark buiding with smashed windows, his dancing becomes more natural and positive as the sound progresses, to show his confidence building, finally believing that he is thegreatest, and it shows in his dancing.As the song begins to end and the tempo slows, the dancing becomes more robotic again and he begins to lose his balance, he the dances lower to the ground until he is eventually lying on the ground and appears to be asleep,
  • ... or dead depending on the audiences interpretation. this has connotations to black freedom in america, and how it could of all been a dream, that peace and acceptance was only short term now that President elect Donald Trump has resident to power. This is thesecret message that i am trying to show. 'Donald' says that he wants america to be great again, so a black male dancer saying that he is the greatest showing aggression and passion,contradicts what Trump is proposing.
