Dog’xploding

Bear & Texas

Richard Neville

2019

INT. FAMILY HOME - NIGHT

FADE IN:

Storyboard 01

Two DOGS sit side by side looking through glass doors at the garden. Inside is well lit. Outside is blackness.

BEAR is a small cute sort of female dog. A little nervy and quick in movements.

TEXAS is a large dignified sort of male dog. Stronger looking, calm and slow moving.

(Every now and then, we glimpse their human OWNER calmly busying around in the background.)

Bear makes fidgety, anxious movements.

Storyboard 02

BEAR

So worried.

Texas regards her calmly.

TEXAS

No worries.

BEAR

with emphasis Worried.

Texas rolls his eyes and sighs.

TEXAS

TEXAS

Shaking.

TEXAS

TEXAS

What’s troubling you, little dog?

BEAR

I know what tonight is.

Texas regards Bear. Both dogs sit quietly for a moment, facing out towards the garden.

The Owner unlocks the door and let’s Texas out.

BEAR

TEXAS

Texas leaves. The door closes.

Storyboard 11

Bear is left sitting alone on the mat.

A single point of light rises into the night sky...

The single point of light goes up and up...

... Reflected in Bear’s widening eyes.

A huge singular firework explodes in the sky.
