Comm Lab: Video & Sound

Week 3: Video Storyboard

For our storyboard, we decided to send a message about how important it is to properly throw away trash and recycle. Our story will follow a couple on a date through New York City.  On their way, they experience gradually worse examples of people not caring about how they remove their trash. The film will begin with scenic images of the couple sitting in places like the Brooklyn Bridge Park and Prospect Park.  Then they will witness someone eating and tossing wrappers and food on the ground. They are bothered by this but choose to ignore them and continue on their date. The scenery gradually changes from beautiful images of the city to trash-filled examples of the city. Their date ends at a trash-filled stoop.  They have to climb up their stoop over the piles of trash. As they climb, the film rewinds to the scene of the person dropping wrappers on the ground. This time the couple confronts this person and asks them to put their trash into a receptacle. The film ends with a message on the screen about our future and the importance of getting rid of trash properly.

The following images show our storyboard…
