Script Ideas for Animatic

What we are essentially trying to do is create a few snippets of character interaction to show a preview of what the show will be like. This is heavily character based so please refer to the character synopsis to better capture their personality. As far as background, we are flexible when it comes to that (since we are still developing them and we really want the focus to be on the characters), but there is references in the crew resources tab, under layouts. If there is any further questions, we are always available via email. :)

(There will be a name underneath the shot that is taken. Please bear that in mind when deciding on the script. Email us the one you want to undertake.)

Veil walks into his and Gemini's room, he's sipping some coffee and reading the morning paper - that is until he walks in the room and sees his wife searching through their drawers, completely naked. Her form glistens in the morning light shining through their bedroom windows. A used towel is crumpled on the bed next to her.

Veil drops the papers and walks towards his wife. He gently grabs her by the shoulders and begins to bend down to give her a peck on the cheek, but suddenly she blurts out:

"Veil, I'm gunna wear two pairs of sock-"

"-no no no no no…shh…" he coos, "let me have this."


Veil and Gemini are in the kitchen together. Veil is sitting in a chair reading the newspaper quietly, while Gemini stands to his right. A grapefruit sits next to a bowl of cereal forgotten on the table. There Gemini begins to tell a nonsensical story about a blue whale and a homely mermaid going grocery shopping together.

Veil doesn't seem to care and continues to stare at the newspaper as Gemini, in her excitement, begins to use overly dramatic hand gestures to put emphasis in her words. This goes on for a few moments, and every time Veil turns to a new page Gemini seems to make leap to another topic.

Her excitement builds and her voice raises. She squeals, she flails, she is making no sense, when Veil finally decides to put down his newspaper and look over at her.

After a pause where it seems Veil might begin to be interested in the tale he reaches out to her, places a finger in front of her lips and coos "-no no no no …..shhhhhhh," before proceeding to pick up the newspaper he momentarily put down and resumes his reading.

Gemini remains quiet for a very long pause, and Veil turns to a new page.

Gemini is sitting contently in-between Veil's legs in a palette made from a few blankets and pillows strewn on the floor. Her back is pressed against his, and one of her hands is placed in his. Veil rests his head on hers. After a quiet moment, she turns to her side and looks up at him.

"I love you baby" is said softly as she rests her head on his upper chest.
"I love you too darling" responds Veil as Gemini nuzzles into him and closes her eyes.

Veil is writing on his typewriter in his study. As his fingers tick away at the type, a "yargh!" is heard. The clicking of the typewriter keys continue. "Ay ye matey!" comes through the walls, and still Veil continues typing. With a "DING" he finishes a sentence and a "walk the plank ye scurvy dog!" comes through, and Veil gets up from his chair, and opens the door to his study, where he walks out. Right at the door is Gemini, dressed in full pirate gear, complete with a wooden sword, prancing around the living room fighting off pretend foes. She runs over to Veil and starts babbling pirate speak to her: "aye ye matey, scurvy sea dog!" as she pretends to jab at him. Veil, unfazed, walks into the kitchen. All along the way Gem dances around him, shouting pseudo sea-insults, some that don't even make sense like "salty land potato!!" and pretending to sword fight with him.

All the while Veil walks into the kitchen, calmly grabs a glass, gets some ice cubes out off the freezer, puts the ice cubes in the glass, pours some water in the glass, wipes off some water that spilled on the counter, and then drinks the water…

He sets the glass down and the noise it makes against the counter is a 'clink', and places a hand on Gemini's shoulder as she bounces by him, which stops her in her tracks.

"Alright darling, what's wrong?" he says, kneeling down to her level.

Gemini, sadly, lets out a small "yargh…"

Veil waits as Gemini's eyes get bigger and shinier.

"K-Kristina called me fat!" Gemini sobs loudly.

"Well Kristina's a whore." Veil replies.

An elevator filled to near-capacity with people who look cramped and awkward. It's quiet but for the sound of a stifled cough from somewhere in the back of the crampd crowd. Suddenly, Gemini walks into the middle of this elevator casually- she's a little lime green dot in an elevator full of neutral colors - and as the doors close to the elevator, Gem waves to her elevator-mates, greeting them with a "hiiiiii…"

A few seconds later the elevator reaches it's destined floor. The door opens, and everyone's laughing, with Gemini in the middle babbling. "Oh this is my floor guys!" she laughs, hugging people goodbye, "talk to you later Toby, Rebecca, Jessie, Rrrrrobert, Orlando, Dana, Billy and ooh and tell the kids hi Claire!" the people from the elevator exclaim their goodbyes wildly, someone even shouting fanatically, "i love you Gemini!", as the the doors close. Then there's only a silence in the hallway, with only the "ding" the elevator moving up is heard. Gem smiles and walks off.

Gemini and Veil are leafing through wedding invitations that they're writing. Gemini is licking envelopes and handing them off to Veil as he writes the addresses down on them.

"Ah, you do know darling we're going to have to learn how to dance," Veil brings up to his fiance as he elegantly writes on the envelope.

"Nuh-uh!" Gem says, her tongue hanging out from licking her and envelope. "Veil baby I already know how to dance!" She hands her invitation to Veil then and stands up to demonstrate.

She curls her little baby hands into fists and brings them up to her face. She twists her torso left, she twists her torso right, lightly shaking her little fists.

"Aww…" Veil cups his mouth in his free hand with a twinkle in his eye. "We're getting dance lessons."
