Below are the final story board for the trailer with notes and inital ideas before this stage which show how we got here. From here we can see all the major scenes to check whether the trailer might make sense, I did also remove a good number of scenes because it was far too long. We also need to remember we are not actually making a feature film it is just the trailer so its doesn't have to be totally legible.
Look up opening scene of trailers
The characters should switch half way in terms of like ability, start being put off by the girls aggressive approach, seeming like a bad guy, and then liking the guy, or feeling sorry for him. Then it starts to switch around as key scenes build the characters more.
Starts with the final characters facing each other, The girl possibly just finishes off the last henchmen. Images like the start of Chung king mansions. The male character is maybe frightened, as the woman turns to face him, covered in blood looking a little scary. The idea is to show or trick the viewers into liking the male character, and maybe not liking the female character.
So then move on to showing or building the character of the man, showing how respected by men he is and basically how powerful he is.
The girl watching him, following, stalking the, at this point respected male character. The woman angry, bitter (bitch stereotype) She looks like she is in the wrong.
Back to the male character he’s winning, closing deals, being on top. Maybe we see the first signs of his abuse at this point, he grabs a woman and gives her innocent squeeze. Throws her off and gets back to celebrating his win.
Female character sees this above scene. First building towards switch.
Transition from The above scene to the past, showing the father of the female character
Open with the two characters facing each other, the male character looking more venerable.
Fade to male protagonist in the past, being celebrated, in a tavern, doing presidential things, Kim Jung un style. Final celebration of the man shows him grabbing waitress, being a dick, no-one sees this interactions, or is they do they aren’t bothered.
In Some of the scenes above we should add a female character, being happy maybe serving the men.
Also add a continuing distinctions like a big ass medal thing.
Add dad to the background of ‘first grab’ then in next scene show the same thing happening but the end of it
That scene then fades to an older man viewing a similar scene to what the girl just saw. But worse in terms of the girl trying to fight back. (She should be visually different to any female characters previously shown)
Then fades to the previous man shown training with his young daughter, various scenes of training, interaction that shows its clearly man and daughter rather than teacher and student.
We then go back to the scene where he views the bad man disrespecting a woman, he then moves towards the scene, Hinting towards confrontation.
Then goes to banishment - The father after confronting the man is shown to be under arrest being exiled or banished. (IMPORTANT)
We then show young girl at grave scene - she’s grows up, same scene older girl.
Next we see our main female character encounter another woman who is abused, running off visibly distressed, then the female sees the bad man doing up his flies.
We then do a zoom on the eyes HKC style where she is on the street, from there we instantly go to her fighting
Need to have a scene before the fighting that leads to the fights.
Make sure to add training scenes, along with the fighting scenes that are no longer than 1 second.
Training scenes, more fighting, taking out henchmen, henchmen denoted by uniform, similar hair styles, swords and so on. (All these scenes are short sharp 1 - 2 second scenes)
Leading to original scene.
