"Bio" Script for Joe Rickards
**Edit**: As the video will be made up of largely still images, the cut should vary from fast-paced to "holds" on important images, with a mix of wide shots and "camera-pushes" used to emphasize particular elements. This will convey a sense of action to the reel, rather than a simple series of stills.
**Action footage**: Selection of stock footage will be needed to supplement the still photos provided by Joe. This footage should be in direct relation to the previous still; Example: after a still image of Joe scuba diving in South Africa, the stock footage should depict Great White sharks swimming toward the camera. This will give an added element of action and "adventure" to the video, and vary the cut to give greater visual interest.
**Music**: After the intro, which "builds" from the initial note, the score should paint in sound the peaks and valleys of the script-from "builds" to "decrescendos" as appropriate. Use the emotional quality of the music to underscore the message of the script.
**Graphics**: A long filmstrip traverses the bottom of the screen-this is literally the film of Joe's life. Each individual frame is a shot from Joe's past, and they spring to life on the overall screen at the appropriate moment in the story, and the filmstrip winds forward . . .

He even proposed to his wife in a helicopter over Niagara Falls!

| **3** | Joe was raised in a dysfunctional alcoholic family, in a remote farming town on the Canadian prairies, survived the family home burning to the ground and lost his mother to cancer at age 11.
In elementary school, Joe was a slow reader, so he was thrown into a remedial reading class with Down's syndrome children and he was teased and bullied by the other school kids?.
Driven by his battered self-esteem, Joe worked hard and graduated at the top of his engineering class and over the next 13 years he climbed the corporate ladder at leading Fortune 500 companies.
