Storyboard Text

  • Camera Movements: The scene starts off as an establishing shot, looking over the horizon and not seeing the destruction taking place below until it pans down to the position it is now, running with the actor, then cuts to black once we have heard an explosion. Actors Movements: Actor running north-west of the camera as he becomes more and more aware of the truck about to explode whilst trying to convey as much information he can to someone on the phone. Sound: Diegetic sound is used, it slowly becomes louder and then we here an explosion and everything goes silent.
  • Camera Movements: Cuts to black to build suspense to see if the character survived or not. Once it cuts from black, frame for emotion/close-up shot is used for the rest of the scene on the new character. Actors Movements: Due to the appearance of the character, we know she has already been through a traumatic experience and we also know she is shocked to hear the explosion as well and her movements are slow and cautious. Sound: After the explosion, we hear diegetic sound as we hear an overarching 'beep beep' coming from the phone also done to build suspense.
  • Camera Movements: High angle shot is used to look around the house although we cannot see it here as she runs into the house. Actors Movements: We see the back of the main character running from the hospital into a mysterious house. It is clear she is worn and tired. Sound: Non-Diegetic sound is used during a brief period of time. The sound is eerie which contrast to the previous hospital and imposes what will come when we get in the house.
  • Camera Movements: Point of view editing is used over the next 2 scenes whilst the main character searches throughout the room. Character Movements: The main character walks cautiously around the house surveying each and every room. Sound: There is a mysterious radio playing and voices are talking. This is diegetic sound and the radio gets louder and louder whilst the main character discovers more and more of the house.
  • Camera Movements: Point of view editing still being used but when we see what the main character is looking at, the camera does a little pan. Actor Movements: The main character is walking around a dilapidated house and we hear the footsteps droning. Sound: We can still hear the radio but this time a violin is introduced instead of the voices and we hear Beethovens' Sonata No.9 in A major to build suspense as diegetic sound. Flies wizz around and you can hear the buzz.
  • Camera Movements: A mid shot is used to get the main character and the silhouette in the picture. The camera also gets brighter to indicate that the light has turned on by someone that is not in the picture. We then get a close up of the phone on the ground and see that the person in the first scene is calling her. I intentionally do not show the two characters so the audience does not know what happened past this point. That is why there is a close up of the phone. Actors Movement: The main character slowly turns a corner and the expression and the silhouette gives the audience a jumpscare. Sound: The violin gets louder and the song changes to Mozarts' Violin Concerto no.3 in G major once we cut away from the two characters and onto the phone. This is diegetic sound. We then cut to the credits and the violin piece is still playing.
