Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Fades into a living room with silence. Melting candles are on the table. Establishing shot pans around the candles and through the dusty light towards the lounge where we see an old woman's body on the floor.
  • Tracking shot begins at the woman's feet and travels up her body, panning round her. She is bloodied and dead. Camera ends up on her eyes, open and staring, a look of shock on her face. We begin to hear sirens.
  • Policeman appears at the door as the sound of sirens escalates. He first knocks, but to no avail. After a brief period, a tracking shot from inside shows him knock down the door and the camera follows him towards the body.
  • Policeman tends to the woman as the camera pans around him showing his face: shock and bitterness. More police enter the room from behind him in the blur, which then fades out to black. Cuts to next scene after fade.
  • A teenager appears in his kitchen. His hand turns on the steam kettle with a close-up shot. He leaves the kitchen and travels to his lounge. The sound of the kettle increases like a crescendo to create tension. This stops when there is a loud knock on the door. He travels to the door and opens it, where there is the same officer stand outside. Close-up of the boy's face which is now nervous.
  • Close-up to the officer's mouth. He immediately reads him his Miranda rights whilst the camera pans around them. Cuts to black as the handcuffs around the boy's hands click to place. Small pause. Titles roll.
