4 Week Project – Storyboard + Script
We all had a meeting in order to develop our story, and to write a storyboard. This is what we’ve got:
Smiley leaflet in every scene / On guitar / On lampposts /
Music video starts off camera inside car whilst parking. The driver gets out of car; the camera is on Adina who draws a smiley face on a sticky note and then displays the leaflet on his car; camera focuses on the woman’s hand until the leaflet is on the car window. Then, we focus on the sticker from the car whilst people are walking past.
An angry guy (Tik) is ranting over the phone, he is about to walk past the car with the smiley leaflet on the window, and see’s this note and begins to smile and brighten his mood. He is now happy and walks into underground tunnel towards the train station. He then walks slowly past a less fortunate man “Busking” angry man then gives money to him; tramp is happy and plays more guitar tunes, up until he has enough money to get a coffee. He then walks to the nearest café, and whilst about to walk around a corner in the tunnel bumps into Ben. A random person – Ben is furious because he’s a busker who bumped into him. Money is dropped on floor, tramp goes to pick it up, but camera then focuses on Ben who walks out of the underground tunnel. Another guy sees what happened and goes to help Joe to pick up his money.
Camera then follows angry Ben out of tunnel. As he’s walking he see’s a yellow note on the path ahead of him, more begin to appear, camera shot of his foot… He see’s more and eventually he notices Adina trying to gather her fallen leaflets, Ben assists his help… close up of them 2 smiling and Adina then gives him a leaflet for helping. Then Adina walks and Ben goes in the same direction. A last shot a a smiley face on the floor.
So after we all made this storyboard, Joe made the script:
The camera is fixed on a car as we are looking out towards the road. The car slows down to park where the camera remains in it’s fixed position. You can see a number of people in the back ground. No music is being heard.
The camera is then focused onto the window, which is blank, with a slow zoom inwards.
We see a note bring stuck onto the window with a smiley face and smile drawn on it as we watch. The music begins.
The camera swivels to see Adina who has put on the note. She smiles and walks off.
A medium wide shot from behind the car shows a number of people walking past and not paying any attention.

We then follow Tik who is walking towards the car. He is on the phone and is clearly upset at the caller, visibly shouting. Medium close-up, over the shoulder.
