fact of life (final)
This was what actually went on in the planning stages.
The storyboard consisted of eight panels.
Panel 1 Long or extreme long shot of the setting, either with or without the character.
Panel 2 High camera angle taken from the top of the stairs, showing vulnerability of the character in relation to the setting.
Panel 3 Introductory close up view of the character showing her reluctance to start climbing the stairs.
Panel 4 Over the shoulder back view close up shot or an extreme close up of her feet to show the start of her climb.
Panel 5 A full view shot shows her position in relation to the top of the stairs.
Panel 6 Close up reaction shot of the “surprise”
Panel 7 A neutral point of view shot of the “surprise”.
Panel 8 Medium close up reaction shot after the “surprise” sinks in.
