There is a sudden flash of white light as we see the nearby
14 INT DAY CARTERS OFFICE (CRIME SCENE) - The photo of the screaming woman
is on the desk, the logo CRIME SCENE emblazoned across it...ELLEN
CARTER looks at it as she picks up the ringing phone...
Hello CRIME SCENE - yes, that's me...
LANCE the camera man brushes past, rubbing intimately with CARTER - she
shrugs him off angrily, she isn't going to take any shit from him!
LANCE laughs to himself before moving over to SALLY's desk, a young
secretary. He sits on it before giving CARTER a knowing look and turns
his attentions to SALLY - CARTER's eyes roll back in her head.
No - I'm sorry I haven't made my
payments - Friday - Fine - OK?
CARTER watches LANCE as he pesters SALLY - She has a thought. She picks
up her Polaroid camera and focuses on the two - she presses the button
and the photo comes out. She looks at it smiling as it develops.
No - I wont use the card... Fine...
Thank you - goodbye...
She replaces the phone and stands - she walks over to ANDY'S desk, a
young office worker. She passes him the photo...
Could you do me a colour photocopy of
ANDY looks at it and smiles...
CARTER heads for DEZEREA's OFFICE, editor of CRIME SCENE and owner of
15 INT DAY DEZERAE'S OFFICE - There is a tap on the door and CARTER
enters. DEZERAE'S office is in stark contrast with the explosion of
paperwork outside. It's posh, clean and VERY organised.
The walls have framed covers from the the magazines she owns, CRIME
SCENE, TRUE MURDER, ADULT MOVIES MONTHLY and BLUEBIRDS - the office is
an odd mixture of exclusive designerisms and seedy exploitation.
