Idea for dad shot (scene 7 & 8)

Hey guys, so I had an idea for the opening dad shots. I was thinking about the comments last meeting about having more empathy for the father. One way would be having him be a loving father who works hard for his kids. We could add stains or make the sleeves rolled up unevenly to show hard work and exhaustion.  In this show, we'd show that after hours of rocking the baby to get him/her to go to sleep, he is starting to show his exhaustion too. right when he begins to close his eyes, his wife walks in, startling him slightly. We can look at other ways to add some humanity to the shot, so any other suggections would be great! Thanks guys!

*forgot to add the purse at the end, but it would be where she drops it on the couch.


  1. Cool! I really like the idea, but I think the husband looks more scared than startled. Maybe if there was another expression after that startled look.. that shows he is happy his wife is home would help?
