Thesis Idea 1A

 

Because of the length, this post will only contain Part 3 of the Thesis Introduction. The other parts remain the same.

 

Part 3

The core concept that I want to

Voice-over Dialogue:

There are many gifts that humans have.

The gift of existence, the gift of thought, the gift of free-will.

But perhaps one of the most important gifts, is the gift of imagination.

With it, we can dream of worlds that once were, worlds that are, worlds that will be, and even worlds that will never be.

*(With it, we can birth our greatest aspirations, our goals, our hopes, our dreams.

We can realize our fears, fight our vices, and struggle within ourselves.)*

All of this can be yours.

But only if you have the courage to use it.

 

Story Board: Voice-over within *()* do not currently have shots.

Unless noted, transitions are hard cuts.

Scene 1:

Shot 1: A slow pan revealing the world’s scenery, which will be a dark craggy earth, to clarify the setting. Voice-over: “There are many gifts that humans have.”

Shot 2: Eye level shot facing emerging figure. A cloaked figure emerges from rolling black mist/fog. Voice-over:”The gift of existence.”

Shot 3: Close profile shot of figure’s face. Figure raises head and opens eyes. Voice-over:”The gift of thought.”

Shot 4: Over the right shoulder shot of the figure. Figure raises arm towards him looks at hand, and clenches fist. Voice-Over:”The gift of free-will.”

Shot 5: Same position as Shot 2 slow zoom out. Figure releases fist and looks forwards again. Voice-over:”But perhaps one of the most important gifts, is the gift of…”

Shot 6: On the word “imagination”, quick and expansive zoom out along eye level. Dark, rocky earth begins to shine with light piercing through cracks in the earth. Light eventually turns screen white. (Transition)

Scene 2:

Shot 1: Slow pan at eye level. Scenery has changed. If Roman battlefield, soldiers with have minimal animation, moving only a couple inches. If Roman city, civilians would also have minimal animation. Camera may also move up buildings.  Voice-over:”With it, we can dream of worlds that once were.”

Panning around person or shining light can provide transition.

Scene 3:

Shot 1: Low angle shot looking up at skyscrapers, camera moves forward. Scenery has changed to modern city on a sunny day with some clouds. Voice-Over:”Worlds that are.”

Car driving over the camera can provide transition.

Scene 4:

Shot 1: Panning shot. Scenery has changed to space. (Possibly a futuristic city) Pan reveals spaceships and stations. Voice-over:”World that will be.”

Transition can either be a star’s light whiting the screen or a passing ship.

Scene 5:

Shot 1: Zoom out revealing some fantasy setting. Quite possibly a fantastical battlefield or scene otherwise impossible. Voice-Over: “And even worlds that will never be.”

Scene 6:

Shot 1: Scenery returns to high camera shot of original scenery. Slow pan. Scenery is dark except for a brightly lit area containing the imagery shown previously.

Ending A:

Shot 3: Profile shot of figure and the lit area. Voice-over:”All of this can be yours.” Then lit area dims to black.

Shot 4: Close up shot of figure’s face. Voice-over:”But only if”

Shot 5: Same as shot 2 in Scene 1. Figure turns and walks back into the black fog. Voice-over:”you have the courage to use it.”

Ending B:

Shot 3: Profile shot of figure and the lit area. Voice-over:”All of this can be yours.” Lit area dims to black.

Shot 4: Close up shot of figure’s face. Voice-over:”But only if”

Shot 5: Same as Shot 6 in Scene 1. Figure suddenly raise both arms. Voice-over:”you have the courage to use it.” Camera zooms out rapidly, light bursting through the ground and the earth rupturing into white light.

Transition to credits.
