V – Vitality - Shaun Richens.


PAGE ONE – 9 PANEL GRID.

1.1
Black panel.

CAPTION:
First nothing.

1.2
A lit match grasped between finger and thumb. The small flame fights at the darkness all around.

CAPTION:
Then a flicker.

1.3
The top of a tall and thin white wax candle, the wic not yet lit. The hand holding the match hangs inches away from lighting the candle.

CAPTION:
The wait.

1.4
Close up on a pair of lips, they are pouted as they blow out the burning match held before them. The small flame leans away from the mouth as if trying to escape.

CAPTION:
Followed by the end.

1.5
Black Panel.

CAPTION:
The darkness

1.6
The candle burns brightly as it is clenched in a hand.

CAPTION:
Followed by the flame.

1.7
The candle is being lowered and placed on to a table.

CAPTION:
The fire.

1.8
V’s mask is bathed in light from the candle as it rests on the table next to it, the candlelight chasing shadows away from all around it.

CAPTION:
To start the inferno.

1.9
Black Panel.
