This beginning of a storyboard was compiled from footage that I've been collecting for the past year. Yesterday, while I was making this, I knew I was pursuing a story but I had no idea what it was. I believe in my process and trust it, and sure enough, when I woke in the middle of the night and proofed my Timeline, the premise of the story started to form in my mind.
2226 is a movie about an introverted, simple woman whose quiet life is falling apart because of circumstances beyond her control. For two and a half years, she has lived in a hotel room while working as support staff on a headline grabbing, big bucks lawsuit. She is the primary assistant to a two-attorney law practice. The attorneys are a couple who are managing to collaborate to complete their big case while at the same time, their personal relationship is falling almost violently apart.
The legal assistant, through whom the attorneys have been communicating with each other between the times they are screaming and almost coming to blows, is an almost silent witness to what is happening at the office. We really don't know anything about her until we find out that when she is not in the office, she is constantly videoing herself and her surroundings - i.e., on the way to work, whenever she runs an errand, always. After work, when she is alone, she watches whatever she has shot that day.
Eventually, the attorneys decide they need separate spaces to work in; and the legal assistant has to split her time between the two spaces, shooting, of course, as she travels from one space to another. As her situation becomes more stressful, she feels compelled to shoot more. Gradually, because she would rather shoot than go to work, she begins to change.
