Treasure Hunt Game

Would you like to play a game? It's called Treasure Hunt. It's lots of fun. Here are the rules.
  1. Print out the storyboard to the right.
  2. Find and download video clips from the web that best match each of the nine panels.
  3. Edit together a short movie based on the storyboard.
  4. Post a link to your finished short here in the comments.
The treatment for this story is as follows:
A man walking down the street sees an interesting object. He picks it up to examine it but something goes horribly wrong. Later a female character walking the other direction down the same street sees the man lying in a pool of blood. She also sees the interesting object just past his bloody hand. She picks it up to inspect it.
The object in panel #2 can be any object. The male character in panels #1, 3, 4, 6 and 8 is the same person. The female character in panels 5, 7 and 9 is the same person.

It may be difficult to find video of the same male and female persons that match the corresponding frames. In this case, get creative. If you can composite, make a clip that works. The audio is up to you.

The idea is to find all of your video clips for your edit. You could grab your camera and record each clip but that would be cheating.

Now get out there and find that treasure!
