Storyboard Text

  • The film will start out with me giving an intro about what the film is about. "This film was created to open the eyes of students on the University of Kentucky campus and allow them to think in ways not thought before. Men in UK Greek life will be asked to consider new perspectives on their current thoughts of homosexuality, the questions and ideas in this film stem from the questions prosed in the graphic novel "Fun Home" written by Allison Bechdel"
  • I will then go into a summary about what the book is about... "Fun Home, written by Allison Bechdel is a graphic novel that discusses the environment in which she grew up in and her own discovery of her homosexuality. The main character of the novel, besides Bechdel herself is her father. Her father struggled with his own sexuality his entire life and decided to stay closeted, while Bechdel grew up experiencing his struggle, she decided to come out within her college years. The novel discusses the struggles the Bechdel's father experienced as well  his death that took place a weeks after her coming out. In a way illustrated way, she touches on the struggles and realities of homosexuality while keeping the reader engaged."
  • The next step of my film is finding people to ask personally what they think of homosexuality, these people will be young men her at UK that are involved in Greek life. The questions will consist of things such as "what are your thoughts on homosexuality", "why do you feel this way", "have you always felt this way?"
  • After asking these questions I will proceed to read quotes from the novel to the men that I asked the original questions to, these quotes will serve as a new point of view for the interviewees to consider. Some of the quotes may include "sexual shame in itself is kind of death" and "what would happen if we spoke the truth?"
  • After reading these quotes I will ask the men if they have considered a new perspective and if they have new thoughts on homosexuality, I will then recommend to them reading the book because it can open up their lives to more than just surface level thoughts of homosexuality. 
  • I will conclude the film by talking about the change that hopefully will occur in the responses from the men, how becoming more educated on a topic can avoid stereotypes and I will reiterate why Fun Home is such an essential read. It allows readers to open up their eyes to new perspectives and create new and individualized thoughts on a topic that is so commonly grouped into one umbrella opinion.
