Script for Soulshine Bali. Com
Our girl, an overworked young professional living a busy Manhattan Life, is found walking amongst her hectic life trying to escape to her yoga studio for some relief. Surrounded by innovative marketing tactic of wrapped walls that depict the scenery of Soulshine Bali – a roof top yoga deck in Bali, she is immediately transported in her dreams to Bali and imagines the experience of being in a yoga class on deck, hanging out with the locals in town and enjoying the amenities of wifi and luxe accommodations back at the retreat center. She doesn’t leave the dream sequence because she feels peaceful and wants everyone to join her in Bali!
|1.||Long shot of busy Manhattan New York street with traffic and store fronts and numerous people walking at a harried pace – Point of View is from our girl walking down the street. (Nuetral)||Sounds of cars honking, street noise, traffic buzz and people talking, but nothing that can really be discerned|
|2.||Switch to girl’s face. She is dressed in work clothes and has her backpack with yoga mat over her shoulder. She is visibly stressed and intent on reaching her destination||Long audible sigh and slight mumbles to herself – clearly replaying a conversation or event that occurred earlier in the day at work.|
|3.||Switch to front door of Yoga Studio|
|4.||Switch to girl looking at the door||Another long audible sigh – deep breath
|5.||Switch to close up of girl’s hand on door knob and opening the door|
|6.||Switch to interior of studio lobby||Zen music playing in the background|
|7.||Switch to receptionist who is very calm and peacefully smiling at girl||Hey there. Good to see you today.|
|8.||Switch to girl taking off shoes and leaving them in a cubby||Seriously. So good to be here.
|9.||Cut to inside yoga studio room. Girl is in yoga clothes and is on her matt waiting for class to begin||Different music from lobby but still Zen in nature|
|10.||Girl notices something different as she scans the room. She sees the walls are different
Background yoga students entering and setting down matts
Light footed yoga students entering room and rolling out matts
Some faint audible noises as they take in the wrapped walls
|11.||Walls are “wrapped” with scenery from a beautiful roof top that overlooks fields of flowers and trees from Soulshine Bali rooftop||Zen music|
|12.||Switch to Yoga Instructor who is starting with a sun salutation||Yoga instructor is lightly telling class: “This is “your practice. Listen to your body tonight and let it guide you into the poses, never forcing or competing with anyone else as we move into our first downward facing dog…” trailing off|
|13.||Switch to Girl who is looking up to the sky in sun salutation||We hear the instructor as she continues to provide guidance..”letting go of everything that happened today. Forgetting all conversations. Forgiving…”|
|14.||Switch to Soulshine Bali grounds and our girl is transported here for a yoga class.
Different Yoga instructor and
Michael Franti sitting on a barstool with guitar and headset for vocals
|Different yoga instructor is guiding class IN Bali and strumming guitar music is audible
…forgiving anyone who might have said something that was not supportive or conducive to a peaceful relationship…”
|15.||Switch to girl –still dreaming –walking down streets of Bali and open air market is taking place. Children are playing||Girl is smiling and giggling and saying hello to locals.
She is saying please and thank you as she interacts and buys small items from vendors
|16.||Switch to close ups of children’s smiles||Music in the streets
Happy people laughing
Transactions faintly taking place

|26.||Switch to girl laying on the bed on her stomach with iPad open for Skype with someone on other end||…It’s amaxing here. We are so lucky to be able to share this place. I never want to leave…you need to come and join me…voice trails off as we hear her describing vegetarian food, yoga classes|
