greta intro and scene

EXT. TERRACE SKYROS GREECE. DAY

GRETA
Namaste again. I’m Greta most of you already hate me from this morning. I write poems and also songs. I would totally love to be a world famous novelist. Maybe I could get some mentoring from a pro.

EXT. TERRACE. MORNING

DANIEL carries his LUGGAGE onto the TERRACE. GRETA sits sadly sipping coffee completely disheveled from a long night of drunken passion followed by what her tracked mascara testifies was quite a lot of crying.

DANIEL
Hey Greta.

GRETA
(dejected) Hey.

DANIEL
What’s up?

GRETA
Why is it men are all assholes? Could you explain it to me?

DANIEL
Uhhn.

GRETA
So the gorgeous Georgios is of course married. With kids! KIDS!
Each time you think oh maybe this guy will be different. DIFFERENT!
Different must be the dumbest word in the universe.

DANIEL
Yeah I’m sorry we were just. I think you’re right my aura is. It is damaged
And dented.

GRETA
Your aura is OK Daniel.

GRETA gives DANIEL a hug


GRETA smiles sweetly at DON who makes a mock bow in return.

Scene to prepare

EXT. SKYROS RESORT TERRACE - GREECE. DAY

The terrace looks out over the hill to the sparkling sea beyond. A spectacular and tranquil outlook. DANIEL drops his bags and is still as the calming view washes over him.

Vines grow overhead and grapes hang down, olive trees sway on the slope.

Excitedly DANIEL unpacks the CAMERA and begins filming. The only sounds are a soft breeze, distant dog barking and some wind chimes.

DANIEL turns hearing footsteps and finds himself filming Californian ANNA (32) the most beautiful girl he has ever seen – barefoot in shorts and a bright vest.

ANNA smiles at him. DANIEL is transfixed and continues shooting. He zooms in on her.

ANNA blows the camera a kiss and giggles.
DANIEL closes in. ANNA gets shy and turns away.

ANNA
(Good humoured) Hey! Quit stalking me

ANNA theatrically walks behind a bush. DANIEL turns off the camera.

DANIEL
Don’t run away. I need you for scale.

ANNA
What?

DANIEL
I need you. As a foreground element to give human scale.

ANNA
That sounds sooo appealing. What do I get?

DANIEL
A liftetime supply of olive oil and ouzo. You know I can still see you.

ANNA
(Laughing) Damn. You evil genius.

ANNA steps out from behind the bush. She smiles at DANIEL. They stand frozen the electricity crackling between them. Finally ANNA moves along the terrace.

ANNA
OK then. Make it fast because right now I am in the zone.

DANIEL smiles and begins filming. He motions her to the edge of the terrace.

DANIEL
OK. Think serene. Think dawn of civilization. Greek men talking philosophy. Plato. Socrates. Aristotle Onassis.

ANNA
How’s this?

ANNA raises her arms and balances on one leg.

DANIEL
Awesome.


ANNA
‘It was here long ago that mankind first encountered the chinchilla.’

DANIEL
(Lowering the camera) What even is a chincilla?

ANNA
A crepuscular rodent that lives in high altitude colonies.

DANIEL
What are you - a zoologist?

ANNA
I like exotic pets. Not really chinchillas. More like iguanas. What I really want is a komodo dragon but that’s totally illegal

DANIEL
What do you have?

ANNA
A cat.

DANIEL
Exotic?

ANNA
Her behavior is exotic. She’s obsessed with my toes.
Are we done?

DANIEL
Oh. Sorry.

DANIEL switches the CAMERA off. ANNA gently takes it from him.

ANNA
Cool camera. Cute. Does it really shoot like HD?

For the first time DANIEL is grinning like an idiot – his face bright. ANNA smiles back sweetly and then turns the camera on DANIEL

DANIEL
Hey..uhh..no.

ANNA
Not fair. You can dish it out but you can’t take it.

DANIEL
No really I’m not comfortable-

ANNA
OK look I’ll just film your shoes. It can be like when they shoot those mafia boss interviews. We’ll dub you with a Japanese actor. And I will just ask a really bland question. Just one

DANIEL
OK then.

ANNA points the camera at DANIELS shoes. They are gnarly.

ANNA
Dude you need new shoes.

ANNA moves the camera off DANIEL’S shoes to his face.

ANNA
So thanks for giving us this interview. Just one question for the
fans back home. You’re very at home behind the camera right?

DANIEL
Yeah.

ANNA
So when did you first realize you were like.. a voyeur?

DANIEL looks aghast. ANNA laughs and switches the camera off.

ANNA
Hey I’m kidding. Relax. I think I’m kidding. Right?

DANIEL
Yes I am actually. I am a voyeur. I sneak into places and film women in their vests. Joke.

ANNA looks down now slightly self-conscious about her vest.

DANIEL
Really. Joke. I’m legit. I’m making a promo here for the owner. Who knows though maybe I can shoot some Greek porn on the side. Joke.

ANNA
So. Funny.

DANIEL
Sorry yes that was lame.

ANNA
Awkward.

ANNA and DANIEL are suddenly shy as if catching up with themselves; suddenly realizing they have just shared a series of oddly intimate exchanges with a total stranger

DANIEL
Hi. I’m Daniel.

ANNA
Anna.
