Storyboard Text

  • Should I tell them what happened to their son?
  • who is that?!
  • I am going to do it!
  • What does he want?!
  • I come from Maw and Meggins.
  • Here Mother sit and calm down, maybe he's wrong! 
  • Is Herbert okay!? Has anything happened to him?
  • A man was standing outside of Herbert's house. He was really nervous and couldn't decide if he should go and tell Father and Mother what had happened to Herbert. For this part I would do distance shots because it would look better to show the movement of the characters. I wouldn't add any music for this part, but I would let the audience know what the characters are thinking (what they are saying inside their head.)
  • I'm sorry, Herbert is hurt but he isn't in pain.
  • Thank God!
  • The man then decides to go and tell them what had happened. He told Mother that he needs to tell them something important. I would do a close up shot on Mother so the confusion would show in her eyes. I would also add a kind of low and mysterious music while the man and Mother talk.
  • He was caught in the machinery!
  • He was the only one left to us. It is hard.
  • The man went inside with Mother and Father. He was nervous and uncomfortable. The man said that he comes from Maw and Meggins which is the place where Herbert works. Mother and Father were really scared and they wanted to make sure that their son is okay. For this part I would do a close up shot on Mother and the man to show all of their face expressions. I would also add some loud and serious music when the man says where he comes from. 
  • 200 pounds
  • In view of your son's service Maw and Meggins are going to present you with a certain sum.
  • How much!?
  • The man said the Herbert was badly hurt. He also said that Herbert isn't in pin which calmed Mother down. Father didn't say anything because he was still trying to understand what the man had said. For this part I would do a distance shot to show how all of the characters are acting. I would also add a little bit of loud music when the man says that Herbert was hurt. 
  • The man told Mother and Father that Herbert was caught in the machinery. Father was in shock and so was Mother. Herbert was their only son, which is really hard for both of them. Mother's face was white and her breath wasn't heard, she lost her only son. For this part I would do a close up shot on the man first and then on Mother and Father. I would add loud music while the man tells Mother and Father what had happened.
  • The man told them that Maw and Meggins are going to give them 200 pounds in view of their son's service. Mother was in shock. Father fell on the floor. Father's wish came true (200 pounds), but it costed him his son. I would do close up shots on all of the characters. I would also add loud music from the beginning of this part.
