We OPEN on a shot of a cell door with the number 151 stencilled on it in black deep in the bowels of a maximum security facility. The door and corridor are both a brilliant, pristine white.
We can partially see four people, two either side of the cell door, standing with their backs to us.
Ah, this is perhaps our most interesting guest.
ZOOM IN on the door, focusing on the eye level hatch. A hand enters from off panel and begins to open the hatch.
The once great, Doctor Ashley Kanto.
Wait...the shrinking man?
The very same.
ZOOM IN on the door, almost through it. The hatch is now open and through it we can see inside. The cell is spartan, with a bed set against the back wall and a stainless steel toilet a little further up on the left wall.
Sitting on the bed is DOCTOR KANTO, a Japanese man with thick black hair and a youthful looking face, devoid of lines and wrinkles. Kanto is sat on up on his bed, the left side of his face facing us.
I thought he was dead.
He was found wandering around Machida City.
Still zooming in, through the hatch and into the cell, closer in on Kanto.
His once famous claims of being able to exist at an almost microscopic level could not be confirmed.
He’s quite mad.
Pushing in more, a tight shot on Kanto.
He’s prone to fainting fits, bouts of mania and claims to have ‘evolved’ to the point where he has mastery over several hundred different species of insect.
Kanto has turned to face us completely now, revealing a dead milky white eye. A small smirk plays across Kanto’s face.
He says they will come for him when they are ready.
Let’s move on, shall we?
Wide panel: extreme close up on Kanto’s eye, an image of what looks like a POKE BALL where his pupil is.
