Sample Script

  1. 1. ‘An Unlikely Friend’ By Katie Mould Katie Mould 24a High Beech Road Loughton Essex IG10 4BL 07901628040
  2. 2. katie.mould@hotmail.com AN UNLIKELY FRIEND EXT. OUTSIDE MARIE’SHOUSE – DAY Audience are shown a shot of a note, unable to make out what it says (due to handwriting). Cut to Anthony’s face looking sad and distraught. Looks left to right as if looking for someone. Finally looking down to the note. Cut to the note in his hand as he scrunches the paper, dropping it to the ground. (Slow motion shot). Cut to Anthony walking away from the camera, with hands in pockets, clearly upset and wondering what’s happening.This shot should build tension and the walk should not be too fast. INT. ANTHONY’S HOUSE AND MARIE’S HOUSE - EVENING We are taken through the everyday life of Anthony as he eats his dinner alone and does his laundry alone. Anthony’s facial expression should read sad and lonely so that the audience knows that he as no-one to help him. Between these shots, we will see shots with similar activity, but from Marie. EXT. PARK NEAR MARIE’S HOUSE – DAY Marie is walking down the path near the football pitch, with Anthony walking a little behind her. She drops her shopping trolley and Anthony is quick to her aid. ANTHONY Here let me help you with that. MARIE Thank you, I’m always having trouble with situations like this. ANTHONY
  3. 3. Well I’ve got it for you this time (friendly smile). Have a nice day. MARIE Thank you again, you also. We are taken through scenes where they constantly see each other in passing when they are walking to and from the park. At every encounter, both characters act friendly and share a smile and a hello in all scenes. Anthony is once again walking behind Marie and she drops her shopping trolley and slightly falls. ANTHONY I’ve come to your rescue again. MARIE Thanks for helping me once again, I don’t know what’s got into me recently, I keep stumbling along this path with my trolley. ANTHONY Well here, allow me to wheel your trolley home for you, just so I know you get home safely. MARIE Oh, that’s kind of you but I think I can manage. ANTHONY No no, I insist. MARIE Okay, well at least let me make you a cup of tea when we get back to say thank you. I’m Marie by the way. ANTHONY I’m not so sure about the tea, I’m just happy to help you. Well I’m Anthony, it’s nice to meet you.
  4. 4. We follow them back to Marie’s house where they begin to depart at her front door. MARIE Please do come in for some tea, as a thank you for being so helpful. ANTHONY Okay then, but I can’t be long, I’ll get in trouble. MARIE I don’t want to keep you if you’re going to get in trouble? ANTHONY I’m sure it will be fine, I’ll just stay for half an hour. INT. MARIE’S HOUSE – DAY We follow the characters inside and the scene ends on the door shutting on the audience. We are taken through many more scenes of the two characters having a laugh over tea. One scene includes the two sitting having a conversation about their lives. MARIE Do you not spend that much time with your family then? ANTHONY To be honest, my family act like I don’t exist, so most of the time it doesn’t matter whether I’m there or not. MARIE Oh, that can’t be a nice situation to be in. ANTHONY
  5. 5. Yeah, well I’m used to it now and I don’t have many friends to help me with dealing with it. MARIE Well maybe you could talk to me about it? ANTHONY I’m not too sure, it’s hard for me. MARIE Don’t feel like I’m forcing you too, I just thought I could be someone here to talk too. ANTHONY No, it’ll probably do me good to talk about it. We are briefly shown the two having an in depth conversation with music flowing over the top to replicate the style of music. Scene cuts to black. EXT. OUTSIDE MARIE’S HOUSE – DAY We return to the first shot of Anthony looking at the note and him scrunching it up and throwing it to the ground. We are then taken on a slow journey throughout the ground floor of Marie’s house, suggesting that she has left. INT. ANTHONY’S HOUSE - NIGHT Anthony goes home and we are shown him sitting with his family, with them acting like he doesn’t exist. He stands up and walks out of the house, not looking back and we are shown a slow motion close-up of his parents looking shocked. PENELOPE Where do you think you’re going?
  6. 6. There is no response from Anthony and he just walks out looking strong and powerful. He visits Marie’s house and realises the door is open. He walks around with a smile on his face. He then turns and exits and the scene fades out.
