Storyboard Text

  • Background music and slight diegetic sound for contrast with next shot, and voiceover. Chest-level angle, unmoving camera. Shot is of empty hallway, again to contrast with next shot. Will fade into shot of busy hallway.
  • Shot at exact same angle as previous shot, using fade in to give impression that background does not change, only people. Continuing music, much louder diegetic sound, voiceover continues. Camera does not move.
  • Direct interview with Keagan. Head off-center for rule of thirds and to make shot interesting rather than static. Sound is diegitic of interviewee, Background music continues as non-diegetic sound. Transitions in from title sequence and, after a few sections of the interview, transitions into montage
  • Direct interview with Ms. Wideman. Piano is at a different angle but is still obviously a piano, which sets the stage for the interview, as she is a music teacher. The diegetic sound of students tuning instruments in the background adds to this. Non-diegetic sound also exists in the form of background music. Will transition in from a voiceover section and, when finished, will cut to a clip of the library with more voiceover. The angle is eye level with the sitting subject to convey parity, and the subject is speaking facing to the left of the camera.
  • Student working on miter saw in shop class. Intended to show appeal of trades jobs in the montage. Shot from level of table, looking up at student. Diegetic sound low as saws are loud and background music is occurring (non-diegetic sound). Transitions as part of a series of shots of classes not focused on academics and more on arts or trades.
  • (this is a miter saw)
  • A head-on shot of lockers, which will be overlayed with statistics. It is a fairly static shot, because the point of the shot is the statistics. Non-diegetic background music is playing, with very little diegetic noise, as it is not important to the shot. It is at eye level, so as not to distract from the purpose of the shot, and transitions after an interview.
