ScirptDraft - One of Many

Wednesday, 21 September 2011


Road in the middle of nowhere
There are few damaged telegraph poles near destroyed road. A small scorpion is trying to cross it over. He is moving towards inactive windmill turbines and mountains which covered the background.
Suddenly, scorpion gets squished by a man’s boot.
Sick and tired man is directing his dot-and-go-one walk towards his home. His clothes are worn-out and dirty.

Ext. House

Our sight is attracted by the post-apocalyptic house, John Carmack style, which stands by the road. The man enters the house.

Int. House

He sits behind the desk and starts doing something. The camera refocuses on the room to show its details. The old plates weren’t washed for months, empty bottles, papers, boxes and different garbage are scattered everywhere. Flies hovering above the rotten food.
Now we are able to see his desk and himself more closely. He fills the flask with green liquid and injects it in his eye. This is the first time we can see his face closely. The camera zooms in his eye.

Ext. Airship (Illusion) 

The airship is flying above the hills and mountains. It has no steering control and only god knows where it goes. The man sits on the upper deck in the chair and feels good. He doesn’t look sick anymore, he smiles. Everything seems to be so far away. Colors are saturated and the view is distorted in this part of illusion. 

Int. House

The trip is over. The man injects with shaking arms another flask. The trip continues.

Ext. Airship

Same airship and environment, however, this time colors a little bit desaturated distortion is more obvious. The ship flies away and leaves us with ambiguity and unanswered questions.

Int. House

Close up camera shows us a dead face of the man. His eyes are deadly white. Without transition it zooms out the character’s face to the room and the house itself. We are able to see the lonely house in the middle of nowhere.
