Three rows of panels. First row is long and thin, made up of panel 1; second row is panels 2 through 4, all equal sized; and third row is the final two panels, with more focus on the last one.
1 - A plane flies through a dark night. A single, silhouetted figure is visible jumping from its tail.
CAPTION (WATTERS): "From the beginning, I knew the mission was going to be different."
2 - Still night time. A forest. The figure (Captain Adam Watters) walks away from a tree where his parachute rig has caught. He's spec ops, decked in out all manner of equipment and tech to get him through the wilderness.
CAPTION (WATTERS): "As if its very existence would change everything."
3 - Dawn is creeping over the horizon. Captain Watters fords a river, his equipment over his head and the forest at his back.
CAPTION (WATTERS): "And it did."
4 - We're well into the afternoon, early evening. Captain Watters is climbing a mountain. It's not easy going, but mountain climbing so rarely is.
CAPTION (WATTERS) (1): "It was only a gut feeling back then.
CAPTION (WATTERS) (2): "But it was right."
5 - Getting towards night. Long shot. Captain Watters trudges through snow towards a lonely cabin in the distance. Both the man and the building are small, isolated - the only things visible in the shot.
CAPTION (WATTERS): "Knowing what I know now, I still believe that no man is an island"
6 - Captain Watters has arrived at the cabin. We're well into night at this juncture. Snake Plissken sits on the porch, smoking and disinterested in this new arrival.
WATTERS: Mr. Plissken, the world needs--
PLISSKEN (interrupting): Not interested.
CAPTION (WATTERS): But Snake Plissken is as close as you're going to get.
HA! The style and humour are dead on target, Plissken's two words are perfect. I also love all the details of the trouble this specops grunt is going through, just to be turned down, makes the rejection all the funnier. Fun page, Grant!ReplyDelete
