Excerpt from Script


Walking down a side walk cluttered with interesting junk,
Christopher is drawn in like a magnetic field.

He riffles through an old box, full of old
books - all non interesting things to him. Flips through a
couple pages of a book and tosses it back into the box.

He moves on to the next box, it has a few more interesting
items, but nothing special.

The next box is even worse, the worst of them all, full of old tattered clothes.
(a faint sound is heard)

Christopher looks at something.


CAMERA DOLLIES towards an object - a gizmo, not in a box,
but on top of the box. It gleams and shines. Christopher picks
it up and deeply looks at it, studying it, fascinated by it.

God damn lousy movers, they should
have been here an hour ago
(sound getting gradually closer).

Christopher startles and runs away,
taking the gizmo with him.
