FADE IN:

We quickly push down a bare hall to a door at the end, slow tilt down when we reach its doorknob.

With the coming in of the STRINGS we’re already going through the doors keyhole.

As we enter the room the MUSIC STARTS. Lit only by numerous candles surrounding a bed and moonlight coming from a window we slowly continue the fluid camera work across the bedroom and towards the window. (Britney can be slightly seen standing against the wall to its side.)

Cutting to an Extreme Close-Up of the window’s blinds slowly closing as we pan across them. (The BASS simultaneously makes its entrance into the song.) We come to Britney’s hand, her fingers slowly rotating the long thin plastic wand adjusted to provide privacy.

Continuing the slow pan, upwards now until we reach an Extreme Close-Up of Britney’s face as she starts to sing. We then start to fall back ever so slowly, revealing her sensuous night wear of a slightly open short silk robe with a hint of bra and panties beyond it.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

I’m not ashamed

of the things that I dream

I find myself flirting

with the verge of obscene

Into the unknown

I will be bold

I’m going to the places

I can be out of control

We very quickly pan 180° to a full-length three-sectional mirror, the two outside ones angled a little forward. The reflection of each is of Britney approaching her bed, making it appear she is three, not one. On “tonight”, the silk robe falls from her soft body, leaving her in nothing but bra and panties.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

And I don’t want to explain tonight

All the things I’ve tried to hide

Still in the three-way reflected mirror Britney sits on the edge of her bed.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

I shut myself out

from the world so I

She starts to lay back.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

can draw the blinds

Close-up, her head arches back.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

And I’ll teach myself to fly

MATCH CUT:

Out of the reflection and above her head we match her head arching back as her eyes close.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

I love myself

it’s not a sin

Her head turns to its side.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

I can’t control what’s happenin’

Starting from a wide shot above Britney we push down on her as her hands explore her body while her body moves to the MUSIC.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

‘Cause I just discovered

Imagination’s taking over

Another day without a lover

Continuing to push down upon her we’re zeroing in on her tight stomach and her soft hand which caresses it.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

The more I come to understand

the touch of my hand

Still lying on her back and her eyes half open Britney looks into the camera, her body doing snake-like sexy movements.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

The small of my back

the arch of my feet

The camera pulls out while doing a 180, showing that Britney’s actually looking at herself in a mirror above her bed.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

Lately I’ve been noticin’

the beautiful me

Extreme Close-up of her hand sliding up her stomach and to the center of her bra.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

I’m all in my skin

It’s the kind that unfasten’s from the front, and it does exactly that as her fingers unlock it, causing the cups to retract and her breasts to come forth. (Slo-Mo like a blossoming flower popping to life, showing as much of them as we can get away with)

LYRICS

And I’m not gonna wait

Her hand comes down to the side of her bed, letting it fall to the floor. (Slo-Mo)

LYRICS

I’m into myself

In the most precious way

Staying with that low level angle and panning over to Britney’s silhouette on the wall (back in real time) we stay on it as she fills her hands with her breasts and surrounding areas while moving that body to the MUSIC.

LYRICS

And I don’t want to explain tonight

All the things I’ve tried to hide

I shut myself out

from the world so I

Can draw the blinds

and I’ll touch myself to fly

Extreme Close-up of Britney’s lips.

Lyrics

(Britney singing)

‘Cause I just discovered

Extreme Close-up of her face, eyes closed.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

Imagination’s taking over

Rising from her cleavage her left hand travels up until it comes to embrace the side of her neck. Her head turns into the embrace, knowing how precious that hand is of hers.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

Another day without a lover

The more I come to understand

the touch of my hand

During brief INSTRUMENTAL SECTION we’re tight from the navel down to the thighs, her hands exploring a little more intensely now.

Britney’s right hand slides from her thigh to her silk sheet, open palm down as if bracing herself.

LYRICS

There’s a world undefined

Her left hand slides down her lower stomach, going further and further south. (As far down as we can get away with. Preferably cutting just as her fingers slide under the waistline of her panties.)

LYRICS

And my body is mine

It won’t be left behind

Extreme Close-up of Britney’s lips.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

I’m already here

Her right hand clinches a handful of silk sheets.

LYRICS

‘Cause I just discovered

Her mouth half open, eyes closed and head slightly turning to the right, Britney starts to feel the magic touch of her hand.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

Imagination’s taking over

Another day without a lover

Eyes still closed, we understand the next verse through her facial expressions.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

The more I come to understand

the touch of my hand

Britney is half sitting up now, and she reaches to the back of her with her right hand to hold on to the headboard of her bed.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

‘Cause I just discovered

Her face rests against her risen right forearm as the intensity she fills gets even stronger.

LYRICS

(Britney singing)

Imagination’s taking over

Panning over to her whole silhouette on the wall, we see enough to know what she’s doing with that body movement of hers.

LYRICS

Another day without a lover

The more I come to understand

the touch of my hand

On a Close-up of our self-pleasing princess with her right hand still holding on tight to the headboard at her back we capture her visual climax through the emotions expressed on her face from two angles as her body moves and jolts from the touch of her hand.

The calm after the storm, Britney lies flat on her back, holding her sheets up to her chest. She turns her head to the left (towards camera) closed eyes and a smile of satisfaction. With that turn of the head comes our slow reversal fall back out of the room as we leave the same way we entered…

Through the keyhole, until we’re back at the front of the door.

FADE OUT:

Turn the key

(click the mouse-LOL!)

to hear the song and video become one…
