"SCARLET - PROMO - SPENT" 1.

(Note:- Add more reference to her wild red hair, do another version with swearing toned down and shoot both in parallel) 1 INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY Bright summers light, streams through the wall of an architectural window. Falling onto a dishevelled, bruised and beaten young woman, as she starts to talk into a home video camera. Quite at odd’s with the exclusivity of the home that surrounds her. We can hear another woman’s voice and that of a child from another room. YOUNG WOMAN (nervous frustration) I’ve had so much to bear. ..oh fuck, fuckin fuckery. Shittin thing ! Takes a couple of breaths to regain her composure. 3 INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY We see her retake a couple of breaths to regain her composure. YOUNG WOMAN Right, start again..ok Looks not into the cameras lens, but at it’s screen. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT’D) I've had so much to bear these past few years.. We see a brief view of her talking on the screen. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT'D) ..I feel all but SPENT. Realizes she has been looking at the screen. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT'D) (frustrated) Shit ! gotta stop looking into that. Right into the camera. Looks at a note pad then into the camera lens and takes a deep breath. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) I've had so much to bear these past few years I feel all but SPENT.. 3 1

INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY We see a brief view through the camera lens as she talks into it. YOUNG WOMAN ..And yet this darkness feels like and endless cloak.. Looks down briefly at the note pad. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT’D) ..suffocating me so laboriously, that any moment.. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) ..I feel I have to breath is wrapped in another fold.. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) ..of the cruellest drapery.

INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY Her eyes return to the note pad, this time reddened as emotion starts to take hold. She takes a staggered deep breath. YOUNG WOMAN Oh god. (sighs) She takes another staggered deep breath. The beauty in her eyes holding back the tears, but now filled with the dew of those to come. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT'D) (resisting emotion) Here is where my story starts I just wish it would end.. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) ..but not in such mire.. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) ..and misery. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) Yet like the most perverse of games no god could..

She again looks to the note pad, as the salty dew slowly forms a droplet on her eyelash, clinging close as her eyelid gently folds. It is thrown in to the freedom of now a single lonely tear drop, as it falls to meet the air. We follow the tear drops decent as it hits the ink on the note pad below. The tear departs but leaves it’s mark on the word that once read hell. She sniffs. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT'D) (emotion seeping) ..It’s repetition drags me to a new deeper hell each time that darkness calls.. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) ..far beyond any ruminant of sanity I had left in me. 14 INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY Emotion takes hold. Tears start streaming down her bruised yet tender cheeks, her breathing shivers as her body follows. YOUNG WOMAN (mumbled) Why, oh fuck why. Her, why her, fuck, fuck She puts her fingers to her nose. She stares into nothingness lost to her thoughts, slightly rocking. Then puts them to her mouth. MATCH CUT TO: 16 INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY YOUNG WOMAN (emotionally charged) You need to know this, you need to see it with your own eye's. Her nose wet and snivelling within every quivering breath, she wipes the flood from her face down across her sodden lips. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT'D) For the reality.. 16 14

YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) ..is so much darker, so sickening.. 18 INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY A determination fuels her fight with her emotions. YOUNG WOMAN ..no one would believe that it could not be some fiction.. Her eye’s reddened and face still wet. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) ..but to see with my eye's does not come close enough. 20 INT. BRIGHTON APARTMENT - LIVING ROOM - DAY We see in her eyes the emotion is now tamed, she takes the last brief look at the note pad. YOUNG WOMAN (boldly) This is my nightmare, but so many more have had so much more to bare, an agony that when compared to my own, we would not do them justice to attempt to comprehend. FADE TO WHITE. 21 EXT. BRIGHTON ROOFTOP - NIGHT As the music builds to a crescendo, the YOUNG WOMAN’S dancing builds to a spectacular and a captivating finale. The flames in her hair seem to take control wrap themselves around her burning her dress off as they do. YOUNG WOMAN (V.O.) (sincere) My name is simply Scarlet and I am simply a dancer. Now a naked, sylph like flaming goddess dances before us. As the word SCARLET is mentioned, a smoke like cloak of darkness unfurls and forms trailing off her movement, as if avoiding the spiralling flames. When they get close wide tendrils splay. She stops on her points, moving close, the Darkness seems behind her.

Breathing fast as the flames die down to reveal her ash like skin, her piercing green eyes, all but for her hair. She starts walking towards the side of the roof, we follow then move ahead of her. We see red tendrils of windswept hair coming into view from the right, starting to frame the vista, holding their own time as if in water. As more of the hair flows across filling the frame. Closer we she the pale face of SCARLET as she has walked forward, staring out to the city scape, deep in contemplation. YOUNG WOMAN (worried) ...simply a dancer. SCARLET’s face now angry, her red locks in their own dance but now starting to flare swirling red flames again. A tear departs turning to steam as it flows. Her eyes fire wide, her ash like skin cracks, releasing unnatural smoke in front of her. YOUNG WOMAN (CONT’D) (psychotic) ...simply SCARLET! Jolt back, She shouts again, now in a demonic tone that cuts through emotion. SCARLET DONT FIRE MY.. ..MIND..! Her eyes seem to charge, from the glowing cracks in her ash like skin. As the word MIND is released so too is a bolt of swirling flame and light from her eye’s. The flame disrupts the unnatural smoke, to flow out into the title “SCARLET”, hits of flame within it, her eyes turn to glowing ambers behind. The fluid title then catches light to form letters out of flame, as more unnatural black smoke cascades from them creating creature like forms, decaying and putrefying out SCARLET behind. The burning title has turned to hot embers, as the creature like shapes depart to a more graphic background of decay. As the decay takes the ambers it rips a whole, as the END BACKGROUND smashes in behind.
