This is the same idea as the script in the games forum, but this script is to remain completely on topic. There will be no random posts, no weird unrelated lines of dialogue. This may actually be used for our film, so please consider that as well... we simply can't do some things... then again, most things are possible.... depending on our creativity.... Cheesy


This is going to be one of a few threads like this. Each should be purposefully different so we have a variety of ideas to work with. Please don't try to make them the same.
Each script thread will be "run" by a member. They have the final call on the script. That's it. What they say goes, so just work around it.

For this thread, I am in charge, Alex C.

Format is simple. Please follow it.

For dialogue, CHARACTER NAMES are in CAPS.
Example:
DANIEL: Hey!

Any action is to be in italics using open and close [ I] , [/ I] commands.
This is an example action.

For action embedded into a line of dialogue, simple place it in parentheses-- ().

Example of all of the above:

John walks in.

JOHN (smiling): So... what's up? (He looks around the room.)

Place: Forest clearing with long grass and some bushes.
Time: Late afternoon.

DAVE, dressed in dark-coloured clothes, walks stealthily among the bushes, as if he's stalking someone, or something. All of a sudden, he freezes, then slowly, lowers himself down to the ground, so as not to get noticed.

DAVE (To himself): Hmmm.... right over there. If I could only move in for a closer look...
He leans forward a bit, slowly as to maintain silence.

DAVE: SHHHhhhhhh! Quiet! I'm trying not to scare them. Get down, they'll see you.
Pedestrian, hereby known as Sam, leans down into the bushes and places himself next to Dave.
CUT TO: (what they are looking at)

SAM: So...what exactly are we looking at? All I see is a pile of rocks and a couple guys walking around them.

DAVE: Wait and see...

One of the men walking around the pile of rocks touches a small rock, and a large boulder moves to the side. The guy looks around, then climbs into the hole that was covered by the boulder. The other dude touches the small rock, and the large boulder slides back to the way it was. He sits down on another rock, and starts looking around.

PEDESTRIAN: This is too freaky for me. I'm outta here.

Dave pulls PEDESTRIAn closer to him.

DAVE: You've seen too much already. No we have to be in this together.

DAVE: When I say go, we charge for those boulders. Run as fast as you can and try not to make a scene. If you fall behind I will not turn around and help you when they come for you.

DAVE: Now, we have to be very quiet, so be sure you don't make too much noise.

SAM steps on a twig, it makes a loud cracking sound.

LOOKOUT GUY hears the noise and turns to where the noise came from.


SAM: Whoops...

DAVE: Go!

SAM and DAVE rush the guard; DAVE gets to him first and karate chops his neck, causing him to pass out.

DAVE: Now..which rock was it?

SAM approaches a rock and kicks it. The large boulder slides away, revealing a hole.

SAM: I think it's this one, Mr...

DAVE: Just call me Dave.

SAM: OK, I'm Sam.

SAM and DAVE enter the hole, but they're being watched...

CUT TO: INT. DARK ROOM.

Someone is watching them through a sucky TV.
