Hi all,

thought I'd give it a go..


1. Camera is making a fly-through, passing a big rock with the theme painted on it, low above ground between some high grass. Making a right turn..

2. Flying through the grass there a bit of a mouse seen on the right..

3. As the camera truns (to the right) to see more, there are two mice, one mouse is eating (right) and the other (left) is sniffing the ground, looking for food..

4. All of a sudden the right mouse (with a quick of his head turn to it's right) spots the camera and stands frozen to the ground with a big 'scary' eyes (at the same time this happens, the camera is frozen too), but the other mouse isn't aware of the camera yet and keeps on searching and sniffing..

5. The frozen mouse (on the right) then makes the tiniest little 'squeak'sound (like mice do) and then the other mouse directly holds his last pose frozen too.

6. Standing frozen for a couple of seconds, (out of the blue) the mice (like wild animals) both bark with a low/dark sound (like a big dog's voice).

The sound will be very important in this last scene, going from dead-silent to very loud barking in a split second..

7. Camera shakes a bit and then turns around, making a quick fly-through the same path it came from..

The end
