What if Weekends: 52 Weeks Project 32/52
Sometimes it can be hard getting people to volunteer to help out on a project, whether that be a film, an illusion, a basement reno or something even more ambitious. So, what if you had to do it all, yourself? Would it turn out as you had planned? Maybe the lighting guy takes ill, and the sound man that worked on that feature film you really liked got a last minute paying gig that night, and the clapper loader has a hot date with one of the extras from your last film and your leads don’t even show up, it turns out the rumour you heard about something going on between them was true. So here you are, in the woods… alone! If you HAD to do it all yourself, would you be able to hold true to your vision, or would your drama/romance turn in to a dark comedy horror film?
As Robbie Burns once said…
“Wee, sleekit, cow’rin, tim’rous beastie, O, what a panic’s in thy breastie!”
LOL! Let me jump ahead, and continue in modern English…
“But little Mouse, you are not alone,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often awry,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!”
EXT. PATH IN A HEAVILY WOODED AREA
It’s almost midnight a man is kneeling alone on the path, he’s wearing nothing but a woman’s nightdress and an old scraggly wig.
Reaching out as if to someone that’s not there…
“Cut! Okay, it’s a wrap! Can someone get me my clothes, it’s bloody cold in this nightdress… and get this damn wig off my head!”
A stranger appears, as if out of nowhere
“Hey beautiful, let me help you with that wig!”
CAMERA SWITCHES TO HANDHELD POV MOVING QUICKLY DOWN THE PATH
A woman’s scream is heard fading into the darkness
FADE TO BLACK
