Balls Written By Katy Fosdike


INT. FUNERAL DIRECTORS - DAYTIME As the bored Undertaker stared down at this man wrapped in a hot air balloon, his mind became curious. How does someone die with a bowling ball lodged into his stomach? The uninterested Undertaker, amused by this man’s death, begins work on removing the bowling ball. INT. BOWLING ALLEY - DAYTIME A man goes to bowl a bowling ball down the lane but slips on the surface and loses grip of the ball. As it hurtles through the waiting crowds who have to duck for their lives, the ball crashed free through the glass door and rolls its way into the construction site that is in the nearby park. EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAYTIME Spinning itself through the concrete construction pipe, the bowling ball, carries on its journey through the bustling construction site. Rolling itself unknowingly onto a scaffolding pole, it continues its exploration into the sky and across the pole, dropping itself off the end, it plummets itself through the scaffolding below and into a U-bend pipe that propels it once again into the air and free over the fence of the construction site. INT. HOUSE - DAYTIME Escaping to the other side of the fence, the bowling ball finds itself falling and bouncing off of a water bed and crashing through an upstairs window. Bouncing on the mattress just below the window, the ball bounces once more, not caring that it just landed on a man’s foot, possibly breaking it, it crashes to the floor and rolls down the hallway at speed, running over the cats tail, causing the cat to yelp and look for safety at the top of the curtains. EXT. ALLEY WAY - DAYTIME we rejoin our bowling ball that is currently falling down the side of the house and rebounds on a market stall covering, flinging itself down between the houses, getting itself caught up in all the washing lines, wearing a bra one second, then a shirt, a towel like a cape and finally some big underwear belonging to the fat lady in flat 5B. The bowling ball finds itself with a trail of washing wrapped around it as it carries on its journey between the houses, until it finds itself smacking into a hot air balloon and popping it, falling down, the ball crashes through the basket and carries on its descent. With the balloons ropes entangled around the bowling ball, the balloon is pulled down along with the ball.


INT. ART GALLERY - DAYTIME The bowling ball free-falls with the hot air balloon in tow. Directly below the bowling ball is a well known art gallery, whose exhibiting is about the use of direction and force and has brought in a new trampoline piece that had been created by an up-coming artist. The bowling ball crashes through the ceiling, and rebounds numerous times on the oddly placed trampolines, with this balloon tailing behind it. Its last bounce sends it flying through the gallery, smacking into unknown victims and ending up in the stomach of a gentleman viewing the exhibits. INT. FUNERAL DIRECTORS - DAYTIME As the Undertaker takes the ball from the stomach, he glances at the man’s body. As soon as the ball was removed, the body appears to relax and excretes some lasting gases, which frightens the Undertaker. Sensing freedom, the bowling ball drops and hits the Undertakers foot and finds itself rolling away once more. Onwards to adventure.
