i. Establishing shot - Heavy breathing is heard while the shot slowly fades to a man running. The shot will last aprox. 6-7 seconds and consist only of his feet.
ii/iii. The first of the opening credits. Currently debating on whether to keep the heavy breathing over these or not. The text will fade in.
iv. Similar to i, shot of man running, this shot will last only about 3 seconds.
v. More opening titles.
vi. This shot consists of the main character making a turn to the right and going up some steps. The shot will pan slightly as he makes the turn.
vii. Group names
viii. This shot will start with the character appearing from the right hand side of the screen. He will be walking backwards so the audience can see the front of him, he will have blood on his shirt and should give the impression that he is running from something. He will then jump over a fence behind him.
ix. During the same shot the camera will move forward with the character as he jumps over the fence. Then quite loudly (probably through use of sound effects) a car will appear from the right will collide with the main character. During viii and ix smaller opening credits may appear.
x. The scene will cut to a shot of a man getting out of a car, he will ask if the man on the ground is okay.
xi. The shot then cut to a POV shot in which our main character will appear dazed. He will then get up and begin to run to the right. Smaller opening credits will stop here if introduced.
xii. The scene cuts to the main character running off, possibly telling the man in the car he is fine.
xiii. The scene then cuts back to the same angle before of the man in the car. He will mutter something under his breath and look dismayed and then get back into his car. Upon the door slamming shut the scene will instantly cut to a room with a lady in it. Not sure what she should be doing in the room, it might be a good idea to avoid her doing housework, someone might complain for all we know. A phone will ring and she will walk over to it.
xv/xvi/xvii/xviii/xix. Brief conversation on the phone, it should be understood at this point that the main character and this secondary character are or were engaged in a relationship. MC as we shall now call him for convenience purposes will more or less force invite himself round her apartment. The shot will consist him running towards the camera head on while the camera maintains distance. Before SC can say otherwise, he hangs up leaving her saying "hello?" and then looking at the phone in confusion.
xx. Scene cuts to a birds eye shot of the MC running up a set of stairs.
xxi. Shot of MC coming through the apartment door with a brief shreak from SC, the camera pans right and MC exits to the left of the screen.
xxii. From the right MC walks towards a door and goes in.
xxiii. These shot will make use of a canted angle to represent confusion as nobody other than MC knows what is going on. He will turn the tap, take off his bloody shirt and then lean over the sink until he turns them off when the sink is full.
xxiv. Over the shoulder shot as he splashes water over his face and then he will begin to dunk his head in the water.
xxv. Shot shows his face entering the water following shot xxv. He then exits the water.
xxvi. Shot then cuts to the shown shot and SC appears round the door.
xxvii/xxviii/xxix/xxx/xxxi/xxxii. Contrary to the dodgy story board pictures the couple then engage in conversation. Something along the lines of what has just taken place. The two minutes of filming should at this point be complete.
