Storyboard Text

  • Scene 1
  • Scene 2
  • Scene 3
  • Camera pans around to see the Dancer, walking down a dark and empty street. The Dancer walks down the street and stops for a short while to look around and then stops to exhale loudly. The Dancer would then continue walking down the street for the screen to transition with fade to black/Cutaway.
  • Scene 4
  • Fade from black/cutaway To a Black and white filtered Backdrop of a room full of mirrors (to signify Dream sequence or memory) This scene should leave sense of mystery as the Audience doesn't know that the Dancer is a dancer, so they just see a room full of mirrors and have no idea why.
  • Scene 5
  • The Dancer is in an open rundown space where they are slowly walking around kicking dirt and stones on the floor when something catches their eye and they stop moving and their eyes focus on an object on the floor, the Dancer lets a little smile spread across their face,a skipping rope, The Dancer starts to skip with the rope. The screen flashes black and the screens black and white again, the Dancer is now skipping in a different place, the room with the mirrors, The Dancer has sweat dripping down their face, you can see they're being pushed to their limit. The screen Flashes black again Cutting back to the Dancer skipping in the rundown open space, The dancer drops the rope and with a look on their face like they're being tormented.
  • Scene 6
  • Black and White POV from the Unknown Female Character, This scene Tells the audience that Some Male figure has been holding back the dancer from what he wants to do, this scene should help the audience build a connection with the Dancer for when they finally feels comfortable doing what They wants/Being who they want to be.
  • The Dancer is back in the rundown open area, where they start to stretch their arms and legs The Dancer starts to skip with the rope again, (Cut to the Black and white Setting) where the Dancer is skipping in the room with the mirrors, with sweat dripping down their face, cut back to the Dancer in the rundown open area,They should feel a build up.

The Music Climax's and the Dancer stops Dancing.
