Script

Scene 1 Daniel in detention (Daniel and George sitting in a classroom) Daniel and his friend George have been put in detention by their teacher. George has his feet up and is playing with his phone in the back row of the classroom whilst Daniel sits quietly in the row in front of him. Daniel is in the foreground and George is in the background. As the detention goes on Daniel begins to find it hard to stay awake and slowly falls asleep, his eyes shut slowly and his head begins to sink until it’s resting on the table. When Daniels head is fully on the table and it is clear he has fallen asleep the camera will zoom into Daniel taking George out of the picture. Whilst this is happening the screen fades into Daniels dream. (Detention fades into dream) Scene 2 Daniel’s Dream Daniel enters a dream about his favourite sport basketball. He dreams that he is an NBA star playing in his local park. He dreams that he can do all the best skills and that he can’t miss a shot, but in comparison to real life this is very farfetched. During this scene there is a montage with different camera angles and shot lengths. Some shots of Daniel looking into the camera dribbling and some shots of Daniel shooting into the basket. There are also close up shots of the ball going through the net and an over the shoulder shot showing Daniels jump shot almost from his point of view. At the end of this scene you hear the voice of Daniels teacher calling his name Teacher: Dan (Dream fades back into detention) Scene 3 Daniel in detention part 2 (Daniel and George sitting in a classroom)

Daniel is still dreaming about his NBA stardom when he is woken up by his teacher. The teacher asks George to leave the classroom. Which leaves the teacher and Daniel alone. Daniel, still sleeping is unaware that George has left the classroom and that his detention is over. So his teacher wakes him by calling his name repeatedly. On the third call of his name Daniel wakes up.

Teacher: You can go now. (George leaves classroom) Teacher: Dan (Daniel doesn’t respond) Teacher: Dan!! (Daniel wakes up from his sleep in a confused manner)
