In recognition of awards season please enjoy a series of our screenplays.
Our heroine, FIN, is seen sleeping at the
foot of the big bed. She is sandwiched between two large shapes wrapped
in blankets. FIN stretches sweetly as she wakes up from her nap. FIN
moves to MOM's head and gently taps Mom on the face with her paw.
FIN (sweetly): May I have your tickets please?
(groggy and grumpy): What?!? You can forget it. I am not getting up to
feed you - and don't even start with that mewing business!!
FIN (under breath, but amiably): Okay for you the performance will be free tonight.
leaps down from the bed in slow mo, and moves to the doorway to the
hallway. FIN is illuminated by the nightlights. The screen morphs with
wavy lines to indicate a dream sequence is beginning. The scene is
transformed as the lovely FIN is shown on a stage with a spot light on
FIN (tuning her vocal instrument): Mew, mew, mew, mew, meeew.
MOM (crabbily): Oh here we go again!
is encouraged by the shout of glee from the audience. A white cape is
thrown from the audience which lands on FIN's shoulders. FIN shrugs as
the cape sweeps over her shoulders dramatically.
sings for three minutes. The aria includes many variations on meow
including Mew, Merr and the very popular Ra-ow. FIN completes her
operatic aria and the crowd begins to throw roses at her feet. FIN
clears her throat and begins her encore.
Cut to a
pillow camera shot, as a small decorative pillow sails through the air
towards our plucky heroine FIN. We see FIN smartly avoid the pillow by
stepping to the side.
The dream sequence ends as we see
darling FIN standing in the hallway surrounded by socks, a pillow, and a
small towel on her shoulders. FIN lays down under the towel as her eyes
sparkle (with enhanced computer graphics). FIN rests her darling head
on the pillow for a nap.
