don't forget the 'power of the foreground' - in your attic scene, when the camera pans back and the rocking horse enters the scene, the spatial dimension suddenly pops and gives a real sense of life and animation to what is essentially a digital set. For this scene - as you pan 'past' or, more appropriately, probably backwards from it (with a slowly diminishing light source or similar) you might want to consider foreground details to pan past/look through/travel over etc just to really sell the scene as a space. Also - I don't know where you've placed this scene - it looks as if it's in a domestic space, though the narrative doesn't make it clear where Sybil's death has occured. It would make sense, I think, if it's clear that the scene is taking place in the theatre, as that is where your audience knows Sybil to exist. If the flowers were in her dressing room - as they probably would be - then the wall we are being shown would be a wall in her dressing room; are there pertinent details you might be able to add to this 'blank' to further site the scenario? For example, old, torn theatrical posters and playbills - the important logic here is simply that we're in Sybil's world and Sybil is dead...
