“Balling His Eyes Out: An Urban Fairytale”
INT. TYPICAL AUSTRALIAN LIVING ROOM – AFTERNOON
A young boy, JAXON-SAXON, sits on the lounge. He has been crying. The camera moves out to show a woman, his mother JENNY-MAYBELLINE, talking on the phone.
He’s so upset. The other boys at school have
been bullying him and teasing him since they
found out his father is in jail for low level
methamphetamine production and supply.
Muffled voices are heard as the person at the other end of the telephone call speaks. Jenny-Maybelline seems reassured.
Thanks. That would be great. I’ll see you soon.
A small amount of time has passed. The scene changes to the back of front door, which receives three knocks. Jenny-Maybelline approaches the door and opens it. Behind it is a young man, JADEN-CRAIG, who is carrying a large amount of sporting equipment.
Hi JC, thanks for coming over so quickly, I
know Jaxon-Saxon is looking forward to seeing you.
No trouble at all. I brought over an Aussie
Rules football, a rugby league football, an
association football football and, to a
lesser extent, a rugby union football because I
didn’t want to alienate any viewers.
EXT. – A PARK – AFTERNOON
Jaden-Craig and Jaxon-Saxon are kicking all four footballs, one after the other, to each other. Jaxon-Saxon is smiling, and we:
CUT TO BLACK.
