The background is a light gray color that gradually gets darker throughout the whole video. This scene is late evening, so I want to give off a feeling of night time. The words are not visible at first, but they enter big on screen and recede getting smaller to fit on the screen. The sentence, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" is Jake's line and will always be a white color. Bill's lines, the second person, will always be a dark green. I want Jake's lines to stand out since he's from the future and doesn't belong here. Bill, on the other hand, belongs here, so the dark green will blend well with the gray. Also, this scene is outside, and even though they aren't whispering, their voices are low.
All the words are there from the previous frame, except for "YOU" and "HARDLY." "HARDLY" enters from the top and crashes into "YOU." "YOU" falls out of frame at the bottom. When Bill says "HARDLY," he pushes Jake a little. After this frame is done, the screen pans left so that the words exit on the right. I want to do lots of panning left, because it's like going back in time.
Bill is talking here, and each word will appear one after the other in this frame. The screen will pan down until it hits the top of the words, then will pan left until the entire sentence is gone. This is where Jake pulls out his gun on Bill. I want there to be a different and sudden motion since Jake is now in control.
This is the last word in the video. "WHAT?" fades in at the bottom left corner. The dot in the question mark turns red and expands to fill the entire screen. The red dot occurs in the series when they show the title, 11.22.63. Also, murders are about to happen, so the red references the blood.
