Summary: An example of how to treat your strange friend.

\

1.

EXT. CAMPUS. NIGHT

Two boys, BISS and GUM, and one girl, MO sit on a bench at the campus.

MO
How’s your final project?

GUM
Oh, we’re close enough. Editing is 80% done.

MO
Cool! You Biss?

BISS
(with a fake concerned face)
Ah. There’s this thing. It was hectic when everyone was forced to find a partner for the project, and you know… I wasn’t even trying. Then the elimination process left me May, so…

GUM
(shouting)
What?

MO
(confused)
What? Why?

GUM
She barely talks.

BISS
Or feels.

EXT. PARKING LOT. DAY

May stands at the center and stares expressionlessly for three seconds.

EXT. CAMPUS. NIGHT

Cont’d

MO
Her! I know her!

BISS
(nodding heavily)

MO
It is quite a challenge.

GUM
Weird gurl.

BISS
You know what’s weirder? Although her name is May, rumor has it that she was born in February.

MO
(showing disbelief)
What?

GUM
(narrowing eyes)
Ssssoo…wrong…

BISS
I know.

2.

INT. CANTEEN. DAY

Mo sits next to Gum, Biss sits facing them.

GUM
About that girl, I find it weird to see her almost every night at the campus, she brings some eerie candles and…she starts her service.

EXT. CAMPUS. NIGHT
May walks to a corner in the campus, pulls out a huge book and arranges the candles around her.

INT. CANTEEN. DAY

Cont’d

BISS
(shouting)
Wicked!

GUM
I’ve always had a strong feeing that she’s in a cult though…

BISS
Yeah, yeah. She is all black.

INT. STAIRS. DAY

May wearing all-black outfit climbs up the stairs.

EXT. HALLWAY. NIGHT

May wearing different all-black outfit walks in a distance.

INT. CANTEEN. DAY

Mo sits next to Biss at their regular table.

MO
Guys… she doesn’t eat the whites in Oreos.

BISS
That’s a sin!

MO
We’re gonna get her out of this!

3.

EXT. CAMPUS. NIGHT

Gum, Biss and Mo are about to try talking to May for the first time. They are going to see May at her usual corner.

BISS
Can we just not care if she devotes herself to the satan or whatever…

GUM
Shut up! We do this for you!

MO
(in heroic tone)
We do this for her. She needs help!

4.

EXT. HALLWAY. NIGHT

Gum, Biss and Mo carefully and with alert walk through a low lighted hallway. Gum on the left, Biss is the forefront, and Mo is a little bit behind Biss. Suddenly Biss, panics, jolts himself towards the opposite direction and runs. Gum and Mo are left confused but then follow Biss.

5.

INT. TOILET. NIGHT

Mo and Gum look annoyed. It is three minutes later and Biss haven’t come out of the toilet.

MO
(sighs)
This is bullshit.

Mo leaves. Gum stays.

6.

INT. CAMPUS HALLWAY. NIGHT

It is quite empty around. Mo runs to May who is walking while eating Oreo. Mo introduces herself.

MO
(talking fast)
Hello. I am Moren and I don’t care if you’re an emo. I don’t care if you’re in a cult and I don’t care if you don’t care.

Gum and Biss arrive and stand firmly behind Mo. They look very anxious. May stands still.

MO
I know you think you’re not cool enough to sit with us or even talk to us, but please… my dear friend Bissil needs to start his final project soon with you and thanks to you now he only has three days to finish it. I am here to say we tolerate everything about you from your fashion sense to…

GUM
(interrupting)
To your Oreo sin…

MO
(nodding)
To your Oreo sin…Now. Will you please quit all this None -of-This-Matters-I’m-Never-Gonna-Talk-To-People thing?

MAY
But he never came to ask. Whenever I tried to talk to him, he avoided me.

Mo and Gum look confused. Biss complains.

MAY
He never even let me give him my number. He never gave me his number either.

MO
(ordering)
NUMBER!

Gum pulls out a pen from his pocket and quickly hands them to Biss. Biss cannot find paper to write, so he grabs May’s right arm and writes his number on it. May stares at Gum, Biss and Mo. Mo stares back anxiously and leaves ashamed.

One thought on “We Put the Act in Interaction: Film Script

    Something was missing in this script; I couldn’t find the shoot direction, was it closed-up or wide angle? Then when I watched the movie, that missing part affected me as the audience to find the focus in the frame. In 00:20 I could not find the main actor in this film, I thought it was Abe or Gum because he sat in the middle of them, then later I found out in the script the story was about Biss and May, yet Biss rarely in the middle or shoot closed-up. And the move of 00:52 to 00:53 was quiet rough; I prefer to make it two layers in the frame. The last, the conversation said something was wrong since May was all black yet so many people used black shirt on the frame or even in this whole film.
