The Unformatted Movie Script
"Seduced by the Dark Side!"


EXTERIOR - The local movie theater - NIGHT


(1) The Young Person and Old Person stand looking at the movie poster outside the theater.


The "Dancing Fairies" music begins to play.

Slowly dolly in as music builds.

ArtRage2SBTDS1b160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS1b.jpg

A smile begins to form on the young persons face.

ArtRage2SBTDS1c160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS1c.jpg

Cut to the poster and dolly in slowly.

The "Dancing Fairies" music morphs into the Star Wars theme.



(2) Young Person: "That was a great movie..."



ArtRage2SBTDS2160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS2.jpg

Cut to a side view as the Star Wars music begins to fade to street noise.



(3) Young Person (contined): "but I do not understand one thing."



ArtRage2SBTDS3160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS3.jpg

The young person's head turns to the older person.



(4) Old Person: "What's that?"



ArtRage2SBTDS4160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS4.jpg

Wide angle shot to show emotional distance between the two characters.



(5) Young Person: "How can anyone be seduced by the Dark Side?"



ArtRage2SBTDS5160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS5.jpg

Immediately a dark cord plays.



(6) The old person thinks for a while. Old Person: "Humm!"



ArtRage2SBTDS6160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS6.jpg

Thinking very slowly.

Music: The music starts with "thinking music" and then morphs into to "fairie music". Finally, the music comes to a sharp halt.



(7a) Old Person: "What computer do you..."



ArtRage2SBTDS7160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS7.jpg



(7b) Old Person(off camera): "... have at home?"



ArtRage2SBTDS8a160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS8a.jpg

Cut in mid sentence to see the young person's anticipation.



(8) Young Person (eagerly): "A Macintosh!"



ArtRage2SBTDS8b160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS8b.jpg

The young person's face lights up with excitement.



(9) Old Person: "But what computer does your father use at work?"



ArtRage2SBTDS9160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS9.jpg

Military music for thoughts of father.



(10) The young person thinks for a moment. Young Person: "Humm!"



ArtRage2SBTDS10160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS10.jpg

Music: The music starts as thinking music and shifts to fairy music and then ends with the Star Wars theme.




(11) Young Person (amazed and excited): "Seduced by the Dark Side!"



ArtRage2SBTDS11160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS11.jpg

Full Star Wars theme begins to play.



(12) The Old Person smiles. Old Person: "Ahh!"



ArtRage2SBTDS12a160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS12a.jpg

ArtRage2SBTDS12b160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS12b.jpg

The face lights with a knowing smile as the fairy music starts again.



(13) Old Person and the Young Person walk toward home together.



ArtRage2SBTDS13a160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS13a.jpg

Lock the camera for a matte painting.

ArtRage2SBTDS13b160.jpgFrameForgeSBTDS13b.jpg

The camera remains locked. When the matte painting is added, the shot will look like this:



(14) Fade to Black.

Why Did You Create The Thuumbnai Storyboards?

Since the 3D storyboards look so good, why bother making thumbnail storyboards which look so ugly? Thumbnail storyboards are quick and dirty so see if the scene will work. 3D storyboards explain to everyone how the scene will be shot. Each has its own purpose. Each is important.

FrameForge 3D Studio - Demo Version

Important to all filmmakers
The most important thing to understand about this lesson is you can download and begin using the demo version of FrameForge 3D Studio immediately. All of the figures and the movie sets construction tools are built in. You can place characters into the scene and immediately look at them through different lenses. For a filmmaker, this is amazing. And since the demo version is free (for 20 uses), it is fantastic! It is rare that I can find a program that I can really recommend so highly. Robert Elliott


Your Next Step

Take your thumbnail storyboard and turn it into a 3D storyboard with FrameForge 3D Studio. When you have finished even just a few of the storyboards, email them to me.
Once you are finished, we will discuss which direction you should go next.
