FADE IN:

INT. CLUB – NIGHT

From darkness two hands emerge as they approach light, one guided by the other.

Johanne gently leads his girl to an awaiting table, illuminated by the only light in an otherwise completely darkened room.

Uncertain but trusting she allows him to sit her down, two  candles aflame catching a couple of her senses as she stares out at nothing in particular.

From Stage, With Microphone in CU Left Frame and girl seated at table In Right Background We Slowly Go Into A 180 On Johanne as he steps up to the mic and starts to SING OUT, also to nothing in particular. (A small hint as to what is to come.)

LYRICS

(Johanne Singing)

Let me hear you say

One more time

You can whisper

Or shout it out

Do as you please

Just let me hear you say

Let me feel the touch

One more time

Kiss me

Or hold me tight

Just let me know

That you will love me forever

Seated together, Joanne’s girl guides him as she writes in braille with a slate and stylus.

She releases the paper from the slate and turns it over.

Can’t get enough of your love

Can’t get enough of your touch

You create a void

Whenever you go

I become undone

FADE IN TO:

INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT

From ECU Johanne guides her hands over his bongo drums, teaching her a few beats…

LYRICS

I let you feel me

 one more time

As they both sit on the edge of his bed, her in his embrace.

And hold you tight

She gets the rhythm of the beat on her own….

To let you know

That I will be here forever

With eyes closed she smiles.

And nervously awaits for Johanne to accept her invitation…

Which he cautiously does as he slowly moves in for their first kiss.

(Johanne Singing)

Can’t get enough of your love

You create a void

Whenever you go

I become undone

My vow is to keep this love burnin’

From ECU We Fall Back On Johanne’s hand as he guides her finger tip over the braille he has prepared…

LYRICS’

Keep you warm

Safe forever calm

Never leave you yearnin’

Emotion overcoming her she looks over toward his direction…

Where we find him on bended knee.

ECU, with both hands he holds up an engagement ring, which she feels…

ECU, she nods her head Yes.

ECU, he places the ring on her finger.

Whenever you go

I become undone

LYRICS

(Johanne Singing)

I become undone

Whenever you go

With The Completion Of The 180 we are directly behind Johanne’s girl as he holds her close, his hand on the back of her head, the band at his back, The Camera Slowly Falling Back Until…

LYRICS

(Johanne Singing)

I become undone

I become undone

I become undone

Whenever you go

FADE OUT:

 

This is a video I shot for a local band.

Now that you’ve read the script,

have a look at our  finished product!

Most productions don’t go exactly according to plan,

and our project was no exception.

With no real budget, no access to the only blind school in our area,

 and just a day with our actress

I had to make some quick changes,

but believe the essence of what I was going for

remained intact.
