AIDS, which is an infectious disease with high fatality rates, has a great harm to human, caused by the infection of AIDS virus (HIV virus). HIV treats the most important part of the immune system which is T lymphocytes that can exert the function of cellular immunity and immune regulation as the main attack target and it will destroy so many the cells that make patients lose their immune functions so the human body will be infected by various diseases easily and then often have malignant tumors so that bring the body weight loss, weakness, anemia, in appetence which means people don’t want to eat food, and then multisystem organ failure, finally leading to the deaths of patients. The AIDS patients which the number of young adults are more than others and 80 percent of the ages of onset is between 18 and 45 years old that is the age group whose sexual life is more active. Although many medical researchers around the world have made great efforts, they has not yet developed a kind of drug for curing AIDS completely and there is also no effective vaccines can be used to prevent, so now what the most important thing is to take preventive measures, for example, people do not use the same toothbrushes, razors and other personal items, and should use condoms in their sexual lives. HIV infection will experience acute infection period, incubation period, pre-AIDS period and AIDS’s onset period. The carriers in the incubation period are the most contagious of all because during this stage, they don’t have and find the symptoms and continues to be careless about their hygiene.
As we all know, AIDS is very hard to cure. It needs large amounts of money and long treatment time, so many patients will choose to give up the treatment. Nowadays, there are only few organizations are established for AIDS patients, but because of the lack of the money and inappropriate management, only few AIDS patients can get support from these organizations. We tend to use this video to motivate more people and organizations to pay attention to AIDS patients, take care of AIDS patients.
The story of our movie was happened in a school for AIDS children. The main character of this story is a teacher and his AIDS student. It tells a moving story about a teacher helped his student to pick up the hope of life again. We want to use the teacher to imply the people, who are taking care of AIDS patients and helped them a lot. While the ending of this story is sad, because we think thus the story will be more trust-worthy and touching.
-Statement of problem
We need shoot a touching movie that is better than the others, and the story should be less than 6 minutes.
The storyline of our movie must be clear, make sure audience can understand it easily.
The story should connect with the AIDS patients
The story should be moving
The movie should be attractive and persuasive
The information that we want to express should be clear
The movie should be less than 6 minutes
The ending of our movie must be sorrowful
The target audience of our movie should be all the high school students
Katherine: Our storyline must be clear; we need to make sure that all the audience can understand our movie easily, and the target audience of our movie is high school students, so our story should be romantic thus can attract them easily.
Edward: According to my own experience, using multiple views of shooting will make the video more influent. Besides, sometimes less dialogues and more background sounds can make the video emotional. What's more, actually clipping the video is the most important step, so the editor must do it sensibly.
Christy: First, there should be a central theme that is then developed plot. The story of the short movie, which is flexible and innovative, must be brief and impressive. What’s more, it can shake the audiences’ hearts. The actors should perform characters’ characters so well that what they act conforms to the script.
Monkey: Short story must show a whole story, and the time is very nervous.so there should be a strong voice to sure the audiences can understand clearly. Besides, the short movie should use different cinema works to focus the attentions of audiences.
And background music is very important, it can move the audiences with movie story.
Before doing everything, we have to handle the script; otherwise there is nothing for us to do without a script. The following steps below exactly show us how to write a script.
① ： Get inspired
We can get inspired from what we underwent, from another story or even by imagining.
② ： Draw a mind map
It can start with drawing a time line. Then write down the main contents. This step may help us with being more organized.
③ ： Write the script
After having some ideas and a mind map, it is time to finish the script (draft).
④ ： Polish the script
Give the script to other people; they may have some sensible and helpful suggestions. Next change some parts of the script and the modified one will be the final one.
For this project, we are told that we have to make a storyboard. Now that we know nothing about it, learning it modestly is what we need to do.
① ： Determine the key scenes
② ： Decide how specific the description should be
③ ： Determine the scale and get ready to draw
④ ： Sketch the pictures or take photos and write down the description
After the preparation, it is time to actually take the short video. To shoot an excellent video, we need to achieve a lot of conditions. The director must arrange the crews logically, you will never ask Jim Carrey to act the superman. Background is another big fish; it can always set the mood for the audience. Eventually, the video editor should be good at clipping the video to polish it.
The aim of our short video is asking more people to help with the AIDS. Actually, as teenagers, there is a lot we can accomplish. Donating money for the AIDS is the most practical choice. Besides, not discriminating AIDS patients is obligatory. To avoid more people being infected by the HIV, it is our responsibility to support the AIDS prevention.

After evaluation, we found out that most classmates think our story line is very good and attractive, but the relationship between the main characters is not very clear. And the ending is a little bit confusing.
So in the final video, we changed the background to two students in AIDS take-care center, and they are soul mates. Thus the story can be clearer and more reliable. To make our video easier to understand, we deleted some unnecessary details. The final video we has already upload it to YOUKU.ideo, we need to achieve a lot of conditions. The director must arrange the crews logically, you will never ask Jim Carrey to act the superman. Background is another big fish; it can always set the mood for the audience. Eventually, the video editor should be good at clipping the video to polish it.
