Edited Script

Social Networks by Radiant Cube Productions, Version 2


A lone GIRL is sitting on a wooden park bench. Around her, the noise of bird chirping and natural sounds can be heard. A timid BOY slowly approaches the bench, and hesitantly sits beside 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 an iconic character 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, disappointed, 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 Twit

- Split Screen Cut Closes - He looks up proudly, but the girl has already left. 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, the boy sighs and leans his head down.


A BIRD is now seen on the bench in the GIRL's position. The BIRD has its head tilted and is looking at the BOY. It blinks once - 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.
