FADE IN OPENING A solid, bold background with a jazz soundtrack sets the scene for what is to come. The title The Cell Cycle adorns the screen but is soon wiped from view by a passing cell, only to be replaced by A UCA Release. UPWARDS WIPE ACT 1 SCENE 1 A new background takes place of the opening and a cell soon enters from the left. The camera TRACKS its process while other cells enter from all sides of the screen and follow. The cells depart leaving one which is tracked down to where the word Interphase appears on screen. ACT 1 SCENE 2 The camera pans across onto a new scene. A cell starts to move along when it gradually gets bigger. The beginning of this growing leads to the dashed cell membrane/wall to leave its place and intertwine to form the word grow. As the cell gets bigger, reaching the majority of its full size the text grows too. The cell continues to move alone as organelles make their way on screen and into the cell. ACT 1 SCENE 3 The appearance of one organelle on screen acts as a transition where a cell is now moving along a new background after the text G1 Checkpoint appears. It arrives in front of a barrier bearing the text which adopts a waiting state of orange colouring. This cell is defective with no nucleus.

This defective cell approaches the barrier when it turns red lifts up and pushes the cell down into G0 Phase. The normal cell approaches and is given a green light. The barrier lifts and the camera transitions onto a new scene bearing S Phase. ACT 1 SCENE 4 A strand of DNA slivers out of the cell nucleus. It pulls apart pulling the camera down too. Letters bounce on screen spelling out Duplication. They then turn into new bases which take their places onto the duplicated DNA strands. The strands make their way back across to the cell. The cell continues to grow gradually taking up most of the screen. Two centrosomes appear inside the cell. Camera ZOOMS fully into the cell changing the screen to the cytoplasm colour.

ACT 2 SCENE 1 The two centrosomes move apart and off screen leaving the word Prophase where they were. Camera PANS over the nucleus where the chromosomes in begin to condense. As the last strand condenses it spells out Sister Chromatids. ACT 2 SCENE 2 The camera transitions to a new background Prometaphase. Kinetochores enter as a line and disperse attaching themselves to the chromatids centromeres. The camera TRACKS upwards after the last kinetochore where it rests on one of the centrosomes. This centrosome begins to release microtubule strands. The strands are TRACKED downwards back towards the chromatids.

The camera continues down where the other centrosome is shown. This also releases strands which are TRACKED up towards the chromatids. The microtubules change colour depending on whether they will become kinetochore or nonkinetochore. The kinetochore microtubules attach to the kinetochores. ACT 2 SCENE 3 Another transition to the Metaphase scene. The spindle enters from the left and the chromatids re-enter the screen lining up on top of the spindle. The camera performs a 90 degrees turn. ACT 3 SCENE 1 Transition to Anaphase. The nonkinetochore microtubules then enter and rub against each other. The chromatids are pulled/split apart. These daughter chromosomes are taken off screen. The spindle fibres disintegrate making the nonkinetochore microtubules retreat. ACT 3 SCENE 2 Telophase scene. Two nuclei swim on screen. They encase the chromosomes and take them off screen. ACT 3 SCENE 3 Cytokinesis. The cell finally divides leaving Mitosis Complete during the split. CREDITS.
