Script - Infinite Zoom
FADE-IN: INT. WRITERS STUDY/ROOM – POINT OF VIEW – NIGHT
A writer is struggling to find inspiration.
CLOSE-UP – THE WRITER
Staring at a blank document, looking both tired and delirious.
POINT OF VIEW – COMPUTER SCREEN/ DESK
The writer selects a song to try help him stay awake, as the track begins to play a visualization appears on the screen, within a short amount of time the writer begins to hallucinate, the visuals leek out of the computer screen and into the room, surrounding the writer.
CLOSE-UP – THE WRITER
The writer bewildered by what he is seeing has wide eyes and dilated pupils (in contrast to the beginning.)
EXTREME CLOSE-UP – THE WRITER
At this point the camera zooms through the pupil of the writers eye.
INT. EXTREME CLOSE-UP – INSIDE THE WRITERS EYE
The camera now begins a journey of infinite zoom, first travelling down the optic nerve into the brain, passed some neurones and into a brain cell, from DNA to a molecule, then an atom, a nucleus, a nucleon, a quark and finally a string.
EXT. EXTREME WIDE SHOT – UNIVERSAL SPACE TRAVEL
After zooming in as far as physically possible the viewer soon begins to realize they have now entered a Universe, passing many galaxies the camera eventually focuses on one in particular. Travelling inside this galaxy passing many stars before aiming on one solar system in particular. The viewer notices at this point that the solar system is strangely familiar, passing planets and asteroids before drawing towards a small blue dot. The camera tracks slowly at first towards Earth, descending at an exponential rate in the direction of Leeds, UK. Finally the camera focuses on one roof of a building.
INT. MEDIUM SHOT - BIRDSEYE VIEW – TRACK AND CRANE; PAN TO THE WRITERS SIDE – BACK IN THE WRITERS STUDY/ROOM
Once the camera has gone through the roof, images of a few different rooms are zoomed through to represent travelling through the floors of a house. The camera stops on one floor to reveal the writer has fallen asleep in front of his computer, as the camera settles to the side of the writer he suddenly awakes looking confused.
INT. POINT OF VIEW - COMPUTER SCREEN/ DESK
The writer begins to type up what he has just experienced.
