The Narrative Aspect

Following my initial storyboard, I thought it would be highly useful to briefly list the order that events occur in the story to reference later, both when developing my storyboard and within the post-production stages. It also allows me to conduct audience research without revealing much of my intentions for the promotional video.

Order of events:

  1. Hears tone.
  2. Wakes up.
  3. Checks phone – Date is Thursday 21st July. Time 14:32. Text reads from ‘Catherine McNally’ “Wanna so something?” Screen saver is picture of the sea. Phone screen is partially cracked.
  4. Gets up.
  5. Pulls on black skinny jeans that were on the floor.
  6. Goes to wardrobe.
