Storyboard Text

  • Reason and Evidence #3
  • Where did our home go?
  • Where did all my friends go?
  • Counterclaim
  • Thanks to your hard work, we can now start a plaza here, open up jobs, and start a new community!
  • Concession
  • Thank goodness for this new store opening! Now I have a job and can finally start saving up for my new car!
  • Deforestation literally destroys the Earth. See: a time lapse from one period of time to another period of time of the amazon rainforest, and it shows how many trees being cut down every year. Read: a label for what year it is (1997, 1998, 1999, etc.)  to tell the viewers what year it is for that specific shot. Hear: Kind of sad, but like scary, background music because it is sad and scary that many trees are disappearing every year. Put together: just one video of deforestation over time  Intended effect: inform the viewers about how many trees or deforested every year and how over time it ends up being a gigantic sum of trees lost
  • Refutation
  • CO2
  • CO2
  • CO2
  • Cutting trees create jobs, produces useful products, forests can grow fast, they yield higher timber, and max profits are attainable in less time. See: a plaza like a place where a forest used to be, but now is developed with shops and businesses Read: the names of the new stores Hear: the sound of cash registers opening (ca-ching!) and shopping carts moving around. Put together: this will be fast paced, jumping from shopping carts moving around to cash registers, etc. with quick cuts. Intended effect: show how "successful" these places are, and how they make a lot of money, so people think "well, at least they're making money!"
  • Call to Action
  • Yes, there some reasons as to why one might say deforestation is a good, beneficial thing for humans to do. See: to show an example of how it's good, they will see people working at stores or businesses because because the stores were able to open, which was able to happen because forests were clear, that is what allowed them to get jobs. Also maybe interviews of people that needed jobs, and how getting a job at the new store changed their lives or helped them Read: the names of the people being interviewed Hear: people's voices, cashiers working and telling people their totals, etc. Put together: medium paced, first show workers then show interviews with cuts Intended effect: inform viewers how opening stores opens up jobs, so admittedly, there are some benefits to deforestation
  • Although there are a few reasons as to why that might be true, the negative impacts outnumber and outweigh the positive impacts to humans, nature, and everything around us. See: animals that don't have homes anymore because their forests are disappearing, animals running away, scared. Read: nothing to read in this situation. Hear: trees falling down, scary, menacing background music. Put together: medium to fast pace to show how scared and lost the animals are, play a series of sad animal photos, slow-paced, quick cuts during fast-paced areas, fade transitions in slower paced areas.  Intended effect: make the audience feel pitiful for the animals, create anger against deforestation because this is happening to them because of deforestation
  • People can plant trees, reduce demands for products fueling illegal and unsustainable logging, they can use substitutes such as recycled plastic materials, or bamboo (which is also the fastest growing plant), and reduce paper product use. Also, visit to save and protect forests, and all the life in and around them. See: show people planting trees, recycling, protesting, and other things to reduce/stop deforestation. In the ending shots, beautiful pictures/videos of the earth and the forests will be played to show what a magnificent thing we are destroying. Read: when showing people protesting/posters/signs, they will read things like "stop deforestation!" and "save the trees! save the earth!". Hear: when showing the beautiful earth, play uplifting and "grand" music to enhance the glory of the earth. Put together: slow paced, fading transition from picture to picture, video to video to create a slow pace and have a smooth ending. Intended effect: have them feeling that they also need to (and hopefully want to) take action themselves, and also instills hope in them that this global issues can still be helped/solved.
