SCENE ONE (Opening) – The Break Up• The camera starts the scene by making

everything look as if it’s out of focus and it will be filmed in black and white (sad music is playing)

• After the first ten seconds has passed, the camera will zoom out and focus, so that you can see full body shots of Taylor and her high school sweetheart.

• After several minutes of arguing back and forth, Taylor brings up a good memory – The camera then fades into a flashback of when the two started dating (the video will switch to full color during the flashback, but will go back to black and white once the flashback is over).

• When their discussion gets heated again, the camera will zoom in (close-up shots on their faces, so the audience can see their expression lines in full detail.

• At the end of the scene, the camera will focus on Taylor. The camera will zoom in on her face, steadily stay with her as she stands up, and follow her as she runs towards the door. Then before Taylor shuts the door, she will look back at her now ex-boyfriend. During this moment, the camera will flip around and will capture her ex-boyfriend as if the camera is now showing Taylor’s perspective. After the door is closed, the camera will flip back around to filming Taylor and will show her getting in the car and zooming off.
