Preliminary StoryBoard

In order to plan the filming of our task we made a storyboard noting all the different angles and
shots we would be using throughout our short scene.
We have included notes and rough pictures to produce somewhat of a "play-by-play" of what our
peice is intended to show.

Below are the ideas we have produced -

Preliminary task script

The brief for our AS preliminary task is this

"Continuity task involving filming and editing a character opening a door, crossing a room and sitting down in a chair opposite another character, with whom she then exchanges a couple of lines of dialogue.This task should demonstrate match on action, shot/reverse shot and the 180-degree rule."

With this in mind my group and i set to work on a simple script with back and forth dialogue which would allow for us to use a range of angles and camera shots.
Our scenario is that of two characters having a conversation about a mysterious parcel entitled
"the thing".

character one walks down the corridor towards the meeting room, placing hand on the handle  and opens the door.
Character one: where have you been?
Character two: What do you mean?
Character one: I have been looking for you for ages.
character two: oh I see, i apologise, I was working on "the thing"
Character one: the thing is of great importance, I understand.
character two slides a brown envelope across the table, with a "? mark" on it, while giving a knowing
Character two: you should leave now.
character one departs swiftly.

Once the character is outside the envelope is turned  over and says"DO NOT OPEN , PRIVATE " , she  then procedes to open the parcel and reveals the fact it is a cookie , continuing to end the scene by eating the cookie and walking away.
