Story Telling - Script

OK, this is a rough idea for the script, sorry if it's not well written but the ideas were flowing fast as was my typing.



Both FREDERICK and GEORGE MORTISON exit the front door.

Both walk towards a hearse parked outside the shop front, GEORGE opens the car door to the drivers seat as FREDERICK opens the door to the passenger seat and both get in. The car then drives out of shot.




An old caravan can be seen parking in the middle of a small wooded area, a car can be heard in the distance coming closer. As the car noise gets closer tha camera pans to the right and observes a hearse with MORTISON AND MORTISON writen on the car door.

Hurst pulls up outside the caravan and both GEORGE and FREDERICK MORTISON leave the car. Standing next to each other they look at the caravan and then look at each other then proceed to walk towards the door.

Heading towards the door FREDERICK opens the door and walks in first GEORGE follows.

INT CARAVAN. A deceased, obiese man MR NUMBUS lay to rest on a bed in the middle of the caravan with a  reef of flowers place on his chest. A large stuffed moose head has been mounted on the wall just above where MR NUMBUS' head lies. "Only the crows turned up for his funeral" said GEORGE TO FREDERICK.

Upon seeing the MR NUMBUS and looking back at the size of the carava door, GEORGE and FREDERICK begin to realise that extracting MR NUMBUS will not be as straight forward as carrying him out of the door due to his size.

 ACT 2

EXT. FREDERICK and GEORGE go back outside FREDERICK looks at the caravan scratching their heads.

FREDERICK smiles turns around back to the car and pulls out a huge bag of tools, brings it to the front of the caravan and drops it on the ground.

FEDERICK pulls out an angle grinder and climbs onto the roof easily due to his great height. GEORGE passes up the angle grinder and takes the plug to look fo a place to plug it in the CARAVAN. He finds a socket and plugs it in.

EXT. ON TOP OF CARAVAN. FRDERICK gets to work cutting the roof off the CARAVAN

INT. INSIDE CARAVAN. FFFFRZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ the CARAVAN starts to violently vibrate moments after it's plugged in. GEORGE looks shocked as he oberves plates and cups crashing off the shelves. Then observing the moose head vibrating vilently right above MR NUMBUS' head GEORGE looks distressed. and shouts STOP. Due to the noise nothing can be heard by FREDERICK so GEORGE tries to pull out the plug, he pulls once then twice, it's stuck. Pushes the switch, no response. A distressed GEORGE glances back at the moose head vibrating, it looks like it could fall at any moment so goes outside shouting and waving his arm frantically to get FREDERICKS attention, but it is in vain FREDERICK is not responding.

GEORGE sees an old ladder leaning up against a tree, he runs to fetch the LADDER struggles to drag it back and prop it up the side of the caravan. Rushing to the top of the old  LADDER as soon as he gets to the top CRACK one by one the runs of the LADDER crack due to rot and from GEORGE's weight. GEORGE lands violently on the ground.

GEORGE then looks in the tool bag to find a pair of wire cutters, runs inside the caravan an cuts the wire of the angle grinder with  a violent electric shock the vibrating stop. Smoke is rising off GEORGE's frazzled hair.. But he sighs with relief the there is no longer any danger of the moose's head falling onto MR NUMBUS.

EXT. ON TOP OF CARAVAN. FREDERICK looks at the angle grinder in confusion as it's stopped working and bangs it 3 times hard on the roof.

INT. CARAVAN. the mooses head tips off the wall and lands on MR NUMBUS impailing the corpse with the antlers.

GEORGE slaps his hand on his forhead.

ACT 3.


Both FREDERICK and GEORGE stand beside a large open grave, above them a caravan starts to be lowered by crane into shot and is placed in the grave. FREDERICK and GEORGE start to shovel dirt into the hole into the night. FADE TO BLACK

  1. Just read it back a couple of times and I don't think it needs any dialogue whatsoever.
