STORYBOARD

Storyboard

NOTE: While in production, we realized that we didn't have enough time to meet and shoot for our video, so we decided that instead of actually going to a forest, like we had originally planned, we would change our plan and do a less literal and more abstract version of our original idea. We decided on having no dialogue, filming everything at one location and using only lighting, facial expressions, and music to tell our story.
