There are three former presidents, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush standing in a triangle shape: one on the top middle, 2 on the bottom left and right in a white theater lined with American Flags and many benches on a slightly cloudy but sunny day.

Close up on Bill Clinton addressing the public. In the background there are more American Flags hanging from individual rafters between stone white pillars. There is also a shot of President Bush looking away from camera focusing on something else as well as President Clinton seemingly doing the same.

Camera goes back out wide into the shot of the three former presidents all standing six feet apart in the glowing white theater lined with American Flags and a stage in the background.

Close up on Barack Obama wearing a black trench coat over his black suit. The background consists of a blurred vision of the surrounding area outside the theater being trees as well as little glimpses of a few of the flags and 6 pillars behind him.

0:07

Camera pans back out to the shot of the three former presidents in their triangle. There is motion of the three big flags behind the center of the stage suggesting there is a breeze blowing outside as they speak. There is also more of a shadow cover along the benches suggesting the day has passed a bit more from the start.

Close up on George Bush addressing the public looking away from the close up camera. Background consists of three of the white stone pillars and many tree branches from the surround wooded area. The pillars as well as President Bush are more shaded than in previous shots as the sun either goes down further or disappears behind a cloud.

Camera pans back out to the shot of the three presidents. Many of the flags are now whipping in the wind suggesting a very windy day. Theater is more shaded than in previous shots as the clouds also grow bigger in the sky above the three.

Close up on Bill Clinton, same as his previous close up, however the flags have gotten shorter due to the wind wrapping them up more. President Bush remains in the background looking away from the close up camera with a prestigious smile on his face.

0:17

Camera pans back out to the shot of the three presidents in the white theater. Flags continue to whip in the wind behind them as the theater becomes increasingly more shaded as the day and clouds continue to pass.

0:19

Close up on George Bush addressing the public cam, not the close up cam. View of the wooded area surrounding the theater becomes increasing more clear as well as the three white pillars revealed in the shot.

0:20

Shot quickly alternates to Barack Obama with a passionate and determined look on his face as if trying to convince someone to do something. The bright sunshine reappears behind him and shines on the wooded area and pillars behind him. The new appearance of sunshine could almost represent the dawn of a new day.

0:25

Camera one again pans back out to the three former presidents in their 6 feet apart triangle with Bush at the head. Flags continue to whip in their rafters and the wind. Bottom half of the theater and pillars is engulfed in sunlight whereas the top of the theater is still covered with a shadow. The three flags behind the center of the stage are now calm and straight again.

Screen fades to an all black background with a drawing of a band-aid in all white with the words “It’s up to you COVID-19 vaccination” written in all caps inside the band-aid. Below the illustration and writing of the band-aid there is a link to the site GetVaccineAnswers.org for people to get the latest information about COVID-19 vaccines telling. This last shot serves as a call to action for the general American public to act and get their vaccines and do their part to stop the spread and help eliminate the threat of COVID.
