SCIENTIST’S VOICE

Experiment 208, day 20...

INT. SCIENTIST’S LAB - DAY

We see an early incarnation of a MACHINE (this will be theinner brain of the FABRICATION MACHINE). We see the

scientist, in a white coat.

We pull back to see the Scientist is playing a complicatedMULTI-LEVEL 3-D chess game on a MULTI-LEVEL GAME BOARD with

the MACHINE. The Scientist makes an elaborate multi-level

move. The Machine reaches an arm out into the chess game butthen malfunctions and strews the game everywhere.

We pull back further to see the back and legs of theDICTATOR, with black-uniformed soldiers flanking him. The

regime’s emblem can be seen on the uniforms.

DICTATOR:

Useless.

SCIENTIST:

Please. Give it a chance.

We’re on the machine, which is clicking and jerking as itmalfunctions.

DICTATOR (V.O.)

One more. That’s all.

He turns to leave. We hear the clicking of boots as thesoldiers accompany him out.

We see the scientist’s dejected face as he comes towards thecamera to turn it off.

CUT TO:

BLACK:

And then...

2.

INT. SCIENTIST’S LAB - NIGHT

The grainy footage rolls again; we see the scientist movingaway from the camera (having just turned it on).

The lab is shadowy, late at night. We see his worktable for

the first time, covered with discarded sketches, a furiouslyfilled-in journal, and pieces of failed machinery (the flooris also similarly littered). The TALISMAN sits on the

worktable. Nearby is a small old-fashioned tiny little box.

      Best thing to do is to write it as a story, then read the Scriptwriter's bible to learn how to format it. That's what I did, and it's not failed me yet! Good luck. xx

    All of your scripts are awesome, top of the line, but one thing makes all of them COMPLETELY worthless, and that is, none of the dialouges have speaker's name.

      Hi Muhammad, thanks for your feedback! Some of the scripts on Scripts.com indeed only contain the transcript, without the speaker's name.

      Having said that, lots of other do include the entire script, which includes the speaker's name.

      We'll continue adding more full scripts going forward.

The Sicilian women stayed quiet in the background but planned control of all aspects. It was an inheritance they pledged to their Spanish pirate ancestors (secrecy) and connections.
