Barber Treatment

 

Script

At Field and Main Bank, we craft business solutions. It’s not the easy way, but we think it’s the best way. We take the time to get to know you and your business. We listen well. And we work hard to solve your problems. It’s a relationship between your business and ours that’s built on trust and earned over time. It’s not business as usual. We’re in this together.

Act I

We open the story with barber welcoming a customer to take a seat in the barber chair. He proceeds to put a barber cape on the customer. There's only one chair in her shop at this point in the story. Then we see a series of stationary shots of him cutting hair, putting on product, shaving, and trimming. All of these images have the same composition and framing. These will be very quick cuts in the edit. The end of the montage will show him putting the barber's cape over someone in slow motion. We may use this as a transition to the next shot. This montage will show him working hard and represent how busy his business is. He obviously needs to add space and hire more people. We'll also have a series of fast cut images showing close ups of different things he uses with his hands to accomplish his job (scissors, trimmers, and product).

ACT II

Next we cut to an exterior shot at night. We are looking through the window inside. He's sweeping and cleaning up for the day. The Loan Officer enters the shop carrying two cups of coffee. The barber welcomes her in and invites her over to review the sketches. We can tell from their interaction they've known each other for some time. We use a nice dolly in shot pushing into the two of them discussing the Barber's plans. We cut to an over the shoulder shot to reveal his hand drawn layout of an expanded space with more chairs for future employees. They are both excited and the Loan Officer confirms this can be done. 

ACT III

We start with a close up of the Barber turning the "We're Open" sign to begin the day on the door. We cut to a wide interior and see his shop is now expanded and has more chairs and employees. The Barber is just finishing cutting the hair of a 10 year-old boy. He removes the the barber's cape and gives the kid a high five. Cutting to a wide shot the Loan Officer enters frame as the boy, her son, joins her. The Barber thanks the Loan Officer with a handshake. We cut to close ups of each of them reacting to one another in a friendly way. They've had a long standing business relationship. The Loan Officer is impressed with the new shop. Then we close with a wide shot of the shop. The image blurs and the bank logo and graphic come up.
