PREMISE: Paige’s friend watched this really creepy videotape, and throughout the week he experienced countless bizarre events all relating to dogs.
I shot the intro shots and voiceovers, so I’m not posting those storyboards here. Still, I’ll need a male actor for the following:
SCENE #1: Man walks up to the camera (as if approaching a television), holding the cursed tape in his hand.
SCENE #2: Closeup shot of man’s hand inserting the cursed tape into a VCR (movement is sloppy and amateurish, the VCR itself is made of cardboard and looks very DIY).
SCENE #3: 15-second clip of original Ringworm video, overlaid onto a TV (After Effects).
SCENE #4: Flashback montage, with Paige’s voiceover. Change Location — Scene with man doing something in the kitchen, like cooking or washing dishes. A rawhide bone hits him in the head (this could be green-screened).
SCENE #5: Man crouches down to pick up whatever hit him on the head.
SCENE #6: Tight, close shot. Man picks up the rawhide.
SCENE #7: Change Location — Outdoor scene. Medium or wide shot. Man is walking on the street.
SCENE #8: Closeup side shot of his shoe stepping onto a piece of poop (fake).
SCENE #9: SFX of “Squish.” Man has initial look of disgust as he inspects his shoe, but as he looks up his facial expression is of horror (due to Scene #10).
SCENE #10: Camera pans out, revealing that the entire sidewalk is dotted with dog poop.
SCENE #11: Change Location — Bathroom. Man walks towards medicine cabinet on wall.
SCENE #12: Same angle as scene #11. Man opens cabinet and dog food kibbles immediate spill out (practical effects).
SCENE #13: Different angle. Closeup shot of hand. Man picks up kibble in front of medicine cabinet.
SCENE #14: Different angle (make sure camera isn’t seen in mirror). Man closes mirrored medicine cabinet, revealing he is wearing a spiked dog collar around his neck. He looks shocked, holds the collar with both hands, and wonders how it got there.
SCENE #15:Change Location — Living Room. Man is reading a book in front of the TV. Suddenly, he hears the TV turn on. He is surprised.
SCENE #16: Nico comes out of the television! All visual FX!
SCENE #17: Zoom into man’s face. His expression is of fear and horror, as if Nico rushes him!
SCENE #18: Flashforward back to office. Paige is holding a cursed tape, wearing the spiked collar.
