Storyboard (first draft)
Oppdatert: 13. mai 2020
Never have I ever…
I have never made a storyboard before.
I have never made a film before.
I have never composed music to a film before.
And yet here I am trying to figure out how to make it all happen within the next 30 days.
Panorama of the Desert Mountains.
Not a soul is to be seen in the picture.
Picture ends on Izy sleeping on a cliff with her legs curled up.
She awakes, yawns, stretches.
She finds her toothbrush and starts brushing her teeth.
She is interrupted mid-brushing by Azy appearing in the distance.
Izy panics and hides behind a rock as Azy pass by.
Izy looks up behind the rock with her toothbrush still hanging in her mouth. She looks after Azy with a longing gaze and sighs.
Slowly Izy starts brushing her teeth again but her gaze keeps turning to Azy’s direction.
Izy fights with her gaze and ends up giving in.
She looks after Azy as she puts her brush back in her pockets.
To her left she finds a flower. She picks it up, looks at it, looks to Azy’s direction and starts running.
Izy appears in the background struggling as she fights her way through the rough terrain.
She stumbles and falls.
When she is close to Azy she pauses and takes a deep breath.
She considers going home, but decides to stay.
She rehearses different ways of giving Azy the flower.
Carefully, without being seen she places the flower on the rock to Azy’s left.
Azy looks up front, sneezes, looks to her left, sees the flower, sneezes again, takes the flower, sneezes and throws the flower away.
Izy is standing in the background in shock. Disappointed she goes out of the Main Frame.
Shortly after she appears with a balloon in her hand.
She blows it up, tries to make it stand as if it was full of helium, it slips, the balloon deflates and disappears somewhere in the terrain.
Izy is annoyed and goes out of Main Frame.
Shortly after she appears with pen and paper. She writes a “love note”, folds it to a paper plane and throws it.
The paper plane is caught by the wind and flies out of Main Frame.
Shortly after she appears again.
As she walks her foot gets stuck between two stones. She tries to get her foot out without crying for help.
Finally her foot is free and she limps out of Main Frame.
Shortly after she appears just on the verge of Main Frame with a cupcake in her hand.
The cupcake falls to the ground.
Shortly after she appears with two cups of cacao. They are too full for her to carry and she spills all over her hands.
She is furious and throws the cups away.
Shortly after she appears and as she approaches Azy her sweater is caught in a tree.
Izy tries to escape.
Close up on Izy and the tree.
Izy struggles with the escape.
As she escapes she has a few words to say to the tree.
She yells at it and slaps it.
A branch slaps her in return making her angrier.
She slaps it again and it slaps her in return.
Izy rolls up her sleeves and gets ready to fight.
They fight for a while until the tree “wins”.
Izy cries and tries to explain the tree why she is mad.
They have a confidential conversation where Izy tells it the whole story.
They end up as friends.
As she turns away from the tree she realizes Azy is gone.
Main Frame – except without Azy.
Izy runs to the rock where Azy was.
Close up to the rock
Dramatically Izy throws herself at the rock.
She cries and griefs.
Izy ends up as a pretzel on the rock.
Main Frame – Azy is back.
Azy stands looking at Izy.
Izy realize that Azy is back.
She jumps of the rock, straightens her collar and with a guest she gives Azy the rock.
Azy sits down and Izy walks towards the verge of Main Frame.
With a turn she looks at Azy and walks back to her.
Azy looks up and Izy smiles.
Azy smiles back and scooches over and continues reading her book.
Izy sits down.
She looks at Azy and then to the front.
*Main Frame = Azy sitting with a book on a rock front right with clear view of the play space in the background
NB. Izy never looks directly into the camera although she is often commenting and looking in the direction of the camera.
