Narrative - First Script

Social Networks by Radiant Cube Productions, Version 1 


A lone GIRL is standing under a bus stand in a suburban residence. Around her, the sounds of light bird chirping and natural sounds can be heard. A timid BOY slowly approaches the bus stop, and prostrates himself opposite the GIRL. He slowly turns his head towards her - Split Screen Cut Separates Characters - and he visualises her profile created on the social network 'Chirper'. Images of her appear in the centre screen, and her name is shown as "Prettygirl49". 

The GIRL's Literature Book and University ID are shown, which causes her fictional profile to be updated in the information section. Her T-Shirt with a picture of Yoshi is revealed, which adds 'Video Games', to her 'What I do for fun' tab. 

In the first screen, The BOY waves towards the GIRL to initiate a conversation. The second screen creates a chat window in Chirper. 

Hello, you are B,E,A,utiful

The GIRL does not respond in any way, she turns and looks around normally. Screen two closes the chat box, and Chirper attempts to send a 'Request of Friendship' - Split Screen Cut Closes Inwards - BOY moves closer to GIRL, but only halfway, and nervously reaches out his hand. The GIRL does not notice the motion - Split Screen Cut Separates Characters - The BOY disappointedly makes his way back to his side. The second screen shows that the Request of Friendship has been declined. 

The BOY clenches his fist, and is more determined. The chat box re-opens.

*wink emoticon*

His face corresponds with the emoji sent, and he points his index fingers with his thumbs up at her in a suggestive motion. The GIRL still does not respond, and remains neutral. The BOY then rolls his palm down his face. He is unsure of what to do next. Screen two closes the chat box for the second time, and Chirper attempts to send a 'Prod' on the social networking site - Split Screen Cut Closes Inwards - While the GIRL is turned, the BOY  moves to her side, and is only inches away from poking her, but he relents, and quickly moves back to his side - Split Screen Cut Separates Characters - In the second screen, Chirper responds with 'Error: Prods can only be sent to friends'. 

Growing weary of his failed attempts, the BOY turns towards the GIRL and smiles nervously while scratching his head. Chirper opens up the chat box again.

Listen, I know I came on too strong, bu- (erases message)

BOY shakes his head. Gets a new idea.

Hey, lets hang out some- (erases message)

BOY shakes his head more furiously. Gets a new idea. 

Are you an angel, because- (erases message)

BOY begins panting of exhaustion - Split Screen Cut Closes Off Screen 3 - The BOY has a eureka moment, and turns his head towards the GIRL's side. 

Hi, my name is Trip

- Split Screen Cut Closes - He looks up proudly, but the girl has already left the bus stop. He is left standing on his own, and Chirper's chat box appears at the top right corner saying 'Prettygirl49 has left the conversation'. The chat box disappears, and the boy sighs and leans his head down. He looks to the left, and sees an odd looking BIRD. The BIRD looks back at him and tilts its head to the side, and chirps.


The BIRD begins jabbing the BOY with its beak, in order to get him to perform an action - Split Screen Cut - Chirper opens up in the second screen, and proceeds to select the follow button - Split Screen Close - The Boy smiles widely, pets the bird, and hurriedly moves off screen in the GIRL's direction.
