Case Study No. 0714: Shawn and the Ninja Librarian

Ninja Laptop Lending @ McMaster Libraries
A first attempt at some new promo vids for the library. Consider this a "very rough draft." Would like to get a better camera, mic, etc.

[the commercial opens with a young male librarian addressing the camera]
SHAWN: Hi, I'm Shawn! I'm a librarian here at McMaster, and I wanna tell you about a program that we offer. You can actually borrow laptops from the library. It's super easy, and I'm gonna show you how it's done.
[he walks up to the front desk and presses a button (causing a loud "gong" to sound), then a librarian dressed as a ninja appears out of thin air]
[cut to a closeup of Shawn's surprised face, as the ninja librarian just stares at him]
[the ninja librarian makes a laptop magically appear in his hands out of thin air, hands it to Shawn, and then disappears just as suddenly as he arrived]
SHAWN: Uh, it's just that easy ...
[he gives a nervous laugh, then turns and addresses someone off camera]
SHAWN: Do we always have ninjas working here?
[the scene fades to black, as "A Mac Libraries Production" appears on screen]
[cut to a quick shot of someone staring at the camera (with the image distorted to make it look like he has just one eyeball in the center of his forehead), as "Made by Insane Librarians!" appears on camera]

Watch our brand new library videos to find out why there are ninjas in the library (and learn a little about the library along the way). Watch for three more videos to be released later this week.
