pic 1: Wide Panel shot of the auditorium inside an ornate opera house. The panel takes up the entire page. The stage is flanked on both sides with seats along the wall and 10 rows slightly curved along the horizontal axis (following the curve of the stage) in front of the stage. There are 5 rows going up vertically (the loges). Well dressed dignitaries are sitting in the bottom 4 rows of box seats. On the 5th row is a young prince and a young princess slightly obscured from view by velvet curtains. In the middle of the stage is a young woman lying in bed with a fluffy flower decorated comforter on top with her eyes closed. She is dressed in a white blouse with long wide sleeves (looks like sleepwear). Behind her is a Proscenium Curtain (known as a Drop) made of tree leaves. She has her arms on top of the comforter with her hands folded together. Her face appears to be at peace. The bed frame is Victorian style and is angled slightly so the young woman is facing the audience. There is a small diamond tiara on top of her straight long hair. On the base of the tiara are a three LED lights with the middle on turned on. Part of her hair is held up by the crown while other parts draped to the floor. A large amorphous dream bubble extends from the crown and fills the space above the young women (looks similar to a speech bubble with the tail pointing to the tiara). It almost touches the top of the proscenium arch. Within the grayish bubble is a small wooden door in the middle with a lion head with a mane door knocker.
The next three panels are in a row and are of the same dimensions.
pic 1: A small panel taking up a third vertical slice of the page. The door and the white of the bubble (as the background) is the only thing within the panel. The handle of the lion head door knocker is up (has been lifted up).
pic 2: Same size panel but the door takes up larger of the panel. The handle is back to the down position. The words *knock* is in lower case letters with part of the word in the panel and the other part outside of the panel.
pic 3: Same size panel. The top half of the door fills up the panel with a clear look at lion head door knocker on the bottom half of the panel. The door is now partially open. The opening has shining light coming out of it. It takes up around ⅛ of the panel.
pic 4: The panel takes the full width of the page and rest of the page. It is zoomed out with the open door in the center of the scene. The edges of the panel shows part of the box seat, the first couple row in front of the stage and the top of the ornate stage frame. Various tropical, desert (and some mystical) animals fill the cloudy bubble escaping to the edge of the bubble from the door. There is an image of a lush jungle within the door frame.
pic 1: The panel is in the shape of the dream bubble. There are animals that cross the edge of the panel and part of them disappear (the part of the animal still within the bubble is fully opaque while the part outside the frame slowly turns transparent – a gradient). The panel is zoomed in a little with couple of centimeters of “white” of the bubble above and below the door. This takes the entire width of the page.
The next three panels are in a row
pic 2: The frame (tall rectangle shaped like a door) is filled with the jungle scene that exists beyond the wooden door. There is a tall rushing waterfall in the middle of the scene. The plants and trees along the border of the frame are silhouette.
pic 3: The frame is a long rectangle shape that starts near the previous frame and ends at the width of the page. The scene is further in the jungle with the camera angle slightly facing downwards at the foot of the waterfall. On the right, there is a tiger drinking from the pool of water at the foot of the waterfall. The pool of water fills the left side of the panel with the tiger on the right. The streaming waterfall is a quarter in the panel from the left side.
pic 4: The frame is a long rectangle shape that starts near the second panel and ends at the width of the page. It is positioned below the third panel. The scene is closer with the tiger body taking up most of the panel. The tiger is facing the reader. There is more detail in the tiger’s face where the reader can see the reflections of the tiger’s eyes.
The next two panels are in a row.
pic 5: The scene is slightly pulled out. The tiger jumped towards the audience and to the left. The tiger is centered in the panel. The waterfall is on the right side of the panel.
pic 6: The scene is pulled out again. The tiger jumped even closer towards the audience and to the right side. The panel re-centers on the tiger. (The tiger made a zig zag motion towards the audience). The waterfall is further away and on the left side of the panel.
pic 1: The panel is from the view of the prince and princess box seat (The top row of seat closest to the stage) on along the right wall. It takes the entire width of the page and a third of the height. On the right side of the panel is slight angle view of the dream bubble with the curtain made of leaves behind it. The left/middle part of the panel is the other side of the auditorium facing the box seats along the left wall. The bottom part of the panel there are rows of seats facing the stage with audience members head tilted looking up at the dream bubble. Part of the box seat curtains flank the left and right sides of the panel. The tiger is in mid air from jumping towards the audience. Front half of the tiger is protruding outside of the dream bubble with its front paws extended out towards the audience. The back half of the tiger is still in the dream bubble (and a distorted view of it can be seen in the tilted view of the bubble). The tiger head is angled towards the audience and has its mouth open ready to roar. There is a look of discomfort on the young woman face on the stage. Her hands are clutching the comforter (folds are clearly seen on the comforter from where her hands are grabbing it, looks almost like a cracked window).
The next two panels are in a row
pic 2: The horizontal panel is from the view of the prince and princess box seat but the camera is looking down (Angled top down view). It takes up half the width of the page. The tiger is in the middle of the frame with its head tilted towards the bottom edge of the frame with its body almost horizontal and its head portion is pointing to the left/bottom corner of the panel. Its body is on top of a couple seats in a row with its front arms on top of a seat in the next row (the row behind). There are some well dress audience members under peeping out from under the tiger with a scared/surprised reaction. The other audience members near the tiger are up on their feet looking at it in awe (unsure how to react). Their formation looks like a pointillism painting circle around the tiger (expect dots they are the top of the audience members head)
pic 3: This panel is next to the previous panel, takes up the other half of the page. The layout is the same as the previous panel with the tiger in the middle however it’s head is facing up (looking at the reader) with its mouth open. The tiger sharp teeth are clearly seen with the word “ROAR” in capital, scratchy, unaligned letters on the top left of the panel. All of the audience members are running away from the lion towards the exit (located off panel on the left side, the shape the escaping audience members looks like a tear drop as some people exits towards the isle along the wall while the ones closer to the left edge of the panel are leaping over the chairs in the rows behind them). There is small scream speech bubble on the lower right corner of the panel that is comes from the right side off panel (It is from the young girl on the stage with the tiara).
pic 4: The frame takes up the entire width of the page. The camera is looking up at the prince and princess in their box seat standing up with the two velvet curtains flanking them. The princess has her long gloved hands cross together above her mouth with her eyes wide open. She has two dangling diamond earrings (silver chain with a teardrop shaped diamond at the end). The prince has his right arm crossing his body reaching for his saber (which is obscure from view due to the front wall of the box seat, the viewer can see the hilt). He has a worried look on his face. The palace guards are in mid action behind them with one of them holding the right arm of the princess and another guard hand on top of the prince’s left shoulder.
The next two panels are in a row

The hallway is slightly curved with the door on the right side of the panel. The prince is walking outside towards the camera with his first in a clinch. There is some sweat on his head. In front of his are two palace guards with silver helmets with a feather Mohawk. The princess is behind him just exiting the box seat. She has her hands cross in from of her decorated dress. Her head is looking down towards the carpeted floor.
pic 6: The scene is facing down a hallway on the left side (The camera shifted from the door scene and rotated to the left to its current position). The prince, princess and their guards are towards the end of the hallway. Their backs are facing the camera.

There are other people in the opera house running around in panic rushing around the prince and princess and along the balcony that the marble stair case is attached to. There are four guards surrounding them.
pic 2: The camera is at eye level with the prince and princess at the foot of the staircase and are placed on the right side of the panel. On the left side of the panel is the marble floor of the lobby area and the entrance to auditorium. There is a silhouette of the tiger in the entrance way flanked by velvet curtains. The head of the prince is looking at the auditorium entrance and have an expression of fear on his face. There are some audience members in front of the entranceway running away from the opening in panic.
pic 3: The tiger is now in the lobby area and is well lit and is in the middle of the frame. It has a determined look on its face. The prince, princess and guards are off frame. It is growling. Part of its teeth can be seen.
pic 4: This frame takes up the rest of the page. The camera is looking from below up at the tiger. The tiger roar with its head tilted to the left with its mouth wide open (The scene is similar to when Mufasa from The Lion King is at the tip of the rock roaring). Topical birds fly out from the auditorium entrance flanking the tiger with their wings wide open. The tiger is in the middle of the scene with the marble stair case on the left and right side of the tiger. The prince and princess are in the bottom right corner with the guards (in front of the prince) already drawing out their sabers with the prince grabbing his own. The princess has her hands on top of her head with her head angled towards the floor and her eyes shut. She lets out a scream. The two other royal guards are behind her and supporting her. The scene has a fish eye effect.
pic 1: The scene is outside the opera house. It takes up the entire width of the page. The camera is angled down from the “sky” looking at the entrance of the opera house. The prince is holding the left hand of the princess with his right and pulling her towards a carriage parked in front of the opera house. They are in mid-action of the running state on top of the marble stairs. There are guards behind them facing the entranceway with their sabers out. The carriage is hooked on to four mechanical horses, two in each row. The carriage door is open and held by a royal guard.

The scene is facing the side of the carriage with the prince already inside reaching out with his right arm that grabbed the princess’s right hand. The royal guard is still holding the door open and using his free hand pushing the back of the princess. They are on the left side of the panel with the stoic four, white mechanical horses lined up in front of the carriage on the right side of the panel. The horse master is sitting in front of the carriage readying up his whip. The letter “Z” is dominate on the side of the carriage and a smaller “Z” is located in the top middle of the door frame.
The next two panels are in a row
pic 3: The scene is an angle shot of the carriage door closed with sound lines coming for the edge of the door (indicating that it has been slammed shut). The back of the princess can be seen through the window. The prince is looking out of the small window (on the right side of the panel) having a scared, concerned look on his face. A sound effect “Huh!” screen and a “Whip” sound that is coming off frame coming from the horse master activating the mechanical horses.
pic 4:The scene is angled looking down towards the carriage and with the horses and carriage in mid air. The horses are rushing towards the camera. (Kind of looks like Santa Clauses sled leaving the North Pole) The opera house can be seen in the top left corner of the panel. There is some steam coming out from the horses’ noses with their eyes lit up.

In the distance the opera house is situated on a discus with trees around it, a water fountain in front of it and other vehicles parked in front. This discus is held up by one column in the middle (similar to the houses in the sky in the Jetsons). There are vehicles escaping that area along with birds. More animals, along with the tiger, are in front of the opera house. It is a night sky, can see the stars and a full moon. The “ground” is all clouds. The ground is not visible (similar to Cloud City in Star Wars).
