Some pseudo-Canadian history for your comic script today!
1 - Early morning. Pre-dawn. An establishing shot of a deep forest along a river.
CAPTION: We do not lead an easy life.
2 - Same pre-dawn time. A group of six voyageurs are in the process of waking up from a sleep beneath their overturned canoe. Some are further along in the process than others.
CAPTION: We wake before the sun comes up.
3 - The day has run its course, and the sun is setting. The voyageurs paddle their canoe furiously, although their fatigue is clearly evident.
CAPTION: And we paddle until after it has gone down.
4 - Daytime. The men are portaging their canoe across land to the next portion of their travel.
CAPTION: We bear a heavy burden.
5 - Nighttime. The men sit around a campfire, eating dinner, telling jokes, singing songs, and generally having a pretty good time.
CAPTION: There many are reasons we choose to do this.
6 - Daytime. The men in the canoe look towards the water in horror as one of their own drowns in the water below them.
CAPTION: But there are times when we question if we've made the right choice.
