This storyboard represents the pre-production process of "The Blue Lady." The storyboard is nearly complete. Some remaining scenes will be added by text description in panels along the Timeline; a few more scenes will be improvised and added to the storyboard. The movie will be approximately 70 minutes. We will not publish the last scene until after post-production.

The Blue Lady is a story is about what happened the night Master died and the relationship between two slaves in 1830 South Carolina, LaLi, Elizabeth, and The Master's wife, their mistress, Missy. This is a revisionist tale about slavery from a female point of view. It is a period piece, which happens over the course of one day, morning into dusk. The movie will be naturally lit with daylight, candles and oil lamps. The sets are simple interiors with minimal furniture. The art direction of this movie was inspired by 17th & 18th century Northern European painters and Ingmar Bergman's "Cries & Whispers." The dramaturg is Michael Lewis, the director of "running out," who is also co-producer & director of "The Blue Lady." We are looking for a vacant or nearly vacant old farmhouse north of San Francisco to shoot the movie in. This is a no budget movie. We have spent approximately $1,000 since December 2013 when the process began. We are shooting on an HG 10 and an HG 20 and likely also will use them for production. We have an agreement with fiddler Gary Sizemore to use his YouTube version of "Possum Up a Gum Tree" for the closing music. Other found sound and images were found in the Public Domain.
