Storyboard Text

  • Call to Adventure
  • Secret Candy?
  • Maybe I should have offered some of my secret candy instead...
  • Threshold
  • Wow!
  • Whoa! These actually work!
  • Guardians/Helpers/Mentors
  • Shock Bits generate an electrical charge inside you that infuses your touch with a burst of energy capable of stunning an attacker...
  • Nate moves to a new town where he meets three new friends: Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon. From there, they all come across a new candy shop in town called "Sweet Tooth and Candy Shoppe". Once they help Ms. White, the owner of the shop, with some tasks, she starts talking about magic candy. Curious, the group of friends question her about it, but Ms. White responds that they will have to complete one more task for her before they could discuss it any more. The group wants more excitement in their lives so they agree to her request. Thus starting Nate's "Hero's Journey".
  • Physical Challenge (1)
  • Who are you?!
  • What are you kids doing here this late at night?
  • Once they complete the task of collecting beetles for Ms. White, she gives them their first magic candy, Moon Rocks. The group acts like their own "threshold guardians" by questioning Ms. White about what could be in the candy. They think there is a possibility that she could be giving drugs to them in the form of candy. They also question Ms. White's sanity. But in the end, they are reassured when Ms. White says there is nothing dangerous in the candy. Once they test them out they realize that Ms. White was actually telling the truth about the candies. They could actually jump high with them. It is there that they pass the boundary of the known world(one without magic) to the unknown world(one with magic).
  • Emotional/Mental Challenge (1)
  • Nate uses a Proxy doll to dig up the grave.
  • The group of friends always act as their own guardians because no one else can learn of what they are doing with Ms. White, so they watch out for themselves. Ms. White acts as a type of mentor, telling them what each of the different candies she gives them does and telling them what to do for each task. They themselves are each other's helpers. They help one another accomplish their goals in each of the tasks, and they also each work together to overcome any doubts and challenges.
  • Temptations
  • You will only get the candy if you continue helping me.
  • Ms. White's first request for them is to break into a museum and retrieve a timepiece and a book that apparently belonged to her. While doing so, Pigeon and Summer encounter a man who attacks them. We later learn that he is John Dart. All of the kids now have to try to stop him from pursuing them any longer by fighting back. As a result, they can only get the timepiece from the museum. The kids have to face the physical challenge of overpowering John Dart and escaping from him as they do not know what he will do to them if he catches them. They do end up escaping however, and Nate manages to evade John Dart to give the timepiece to Ms. White.
  • Ms. White gives the kids a task of digging up a grave to try to find a kaleidoscope that she states would help them find the treasure. The kids however start to worry that what they are doing is wrong and that Ms. White can not be trusted. Though they still continue to complete the task and they succeed in doing so because they believed that it was only paranoia. They overcame the mental challenge that made them believe Ms. White does not have good intentions, though their minds were indeed correct as shown further along in the story.
  • Hurry up Nate!
  • Ms. White's true intentions start to be really questioned when the group of kids notice she had become less giving of the magical candy, and starts to threaten to take it away more. She tries to tempt them with the prospect of more amazing candy they have not seen yet to give a Clean Slate to Sebastian Scott, another magician who she says is after the treasure for malicious purposes. He also so happens to be the nice old man the kids know that sells candy around town sometimes. Summer and Pigeon decide to not help Ms. White any more, but they got to keep their candies anyway. Nate and Trevor continue to want to help Ms. White, but they only want to be able to keep track of Ms. White and what she wants to eventually do with the treasure. So the group manages to realize that Ms. White may not have been like what she appears to be, and they overcome a temptation of having more magical candy at the expense of what they do not know about her true intentions for the treasure yet.
  • We're not helping anymore.
  • Okay.
