Storyboard Text

  • In this shot, Atticus goes into Scout's room and wakes her up in the middle of the night for an unknown reason and puts his overcoat on her.  The camera angle I chose is a wide angle that shows the entire room. I chose this because I feel that it helps to capture Scout's reaction to being woken up in the middle of the night by her father (she is scared and doesn't know what is going on).
  • In this shot, the Finch children learn that Miss Maudie's house is on fire, and they can see her dining room in flames. I chose to have a shot outside rather than inside because I think a voice over at this part would intensify the children's reactions to the audience because it is just their voices, instead of seeing their bodies and faces as well.
  • In this shot, the entirety of Miss Maudie's house goes up in flames and the Finch children are instructed to go wait by Boo Radley's house until the fire trucks came. The camera angle in this shot is a wide shot of the house because it drives home the point that Maudie's beautiful house was destroyed by a fire.
  • In this shot, it is from the neighbor's perspective and it is the part in the scene where the town fire truck is being pushed by townsmen towards the fire. I chose to put it in the neighbor's perspective because it showed all of the different aspects of what was going on; the fire, the truck being pushed, and the melting snowman. 
  • In this shot, Boo Radley has just put a blanket on Jem and Scout as they are waiting outside of his house, but they don't realize that it was him. The camera angle is from the perspective of an outsider because I think it is cool to keep Boo Radley's identity a mystery with a shadow, but I want the audience to know who put the blanket on the kids. 
  • In this scene, the Finch children are on their front porch with Miss Maudie and they are offering to help her rebuild her house. Being sweet, Maudie declines and says they have to clean up their melted snowman first. I chose to depict this as a wide shot, but during the conversation I would have the camera switch back and forth to the person speaking.
