Storyboard Text

  • The scene starts with Herbert carrying boxes and placing them on shelves in the background. The camera then cuts to a close up of a different young man who eyes suddenly becomes red. The man then activates the forklift, the camera looking up onto his face from inside the forklift. Light violin music is playing the background.
  • The light violin music carries over into this scene. It starts with Mr. White waking up from his bed, his head turns and the camera cuts to Mrs. White upper body and head, with Mr. White in the background. "Did you get the money yet?" Mr. White asked. Mrs. White turns back and says "Not yet, I checked the mail, maybe it's in the house somewhere?"  Mr. White gets up and goes off screen. The camera cuts to Mrs. White looking out the window, out the window. "Maybe it's in the basement? How about we check," Mr. White says. The camera then cuts to him out of his pajamas and in a brand new attire.  "Ok," Mrs. White replies and the both head out the door.
  • The forklift starts moving, the violins get louder and tubas get added. The camera cuts to Herbert's shoulders and above. The forklift and Herbert both move at a slow pace, the forklift going slightly faster. Herbert stops and makes a confused face, and turns his head to the forklift slightly.
  • The music from the last scene with the violins and tubas carries over into this scene also. Mr. and Mrs. White just left their room into a room still on the second floor with a fireplace. "I can't wait to get this house paid off!" Mrs. White says excitedly, "What do you think Herbert would say." Mr. White replies solemnly "He'd probably say something similar to 'that money is cursed, you'll probably die whenever you use it.'"  Mrs. White gives a slight chuckle and heads downstairs after Mr. White.
  • Herbert's face turns to the forklift. The camera slowly zooms into his face, making a shocked expression, the scene turning black and white in the process. The camera changes to a slightly angled downward view of Herbert getting crushed legs first. His face tilts up and yells a muffled scream drowned by extremely loud tubas, violins, and trumpets. His head almost gets crushed right before the scene changes.
  • The music from last scene ends abruptly. Music similar to plays in the background. "Well let's hurry downstairs, our house being paid off is just a couple of steps away from being paid off!" Mrs. White says cheerfully right before heading off screen with Mr. White.
