Storyboard Text

  • The narrator stops talking and the viewer hears a non-diegetic sound of creepy music playing in the background. The camera pans down the same side of the street at a downward angle and we reach the third house. The camera then moves to eye level and a medium shot of the front of the tall building. The narrator begins to speak again. He explains how this building is being renovated floor by floor and how he feels sorry for the couple who lives there because of all the constant construction they must hear above their heads. A non-diegetic sound of banging and a screwdriver then sounds.
  • The camera then zooms into the top left window and has a close up view at eye level of the shadow of a women in a bathrobe standing by the edge of the widow holding her head. There is non-diegetic sad music playing in the background. The narrator is still speaking but now his attention is focused on the women behind the bedroom window. He is explaining how she is very ill and wonders why the husband does not have a doctor watch over her. He says that the light stays on constantly late at night and she must not be able to sleep.
  • The music stops playing. The scene becomes bright as it is now daytime. The sounds we hear are those of the narrator speaking and the man smoking a cigarette as he breathes in deeply and blows out. We also hear the banging coming from the construction upstairs. The camera now pans to the top right window and zooms inside the room. We see a man from a medium distance standing back turned to the audience in front of a window smoking a cigarette. The narrator explains that this is the first sight he sees of another shade being opened in the house. He describes the man as being very nervous and fidgety, taking a lot of puffs of his cigarette. He thinks it may be due to the fact that he has an ill wife and lots of noise going on upstairs.
