THE HOLLYWOOD SCENE
Life Scripts


 

Situation: CARA often finds herself in interesting situations, surrounded by interesting people. Her goal was to become instantly lovely, gracious and interesting.

 

Idea / execution: In keeping with her tough, but pleasant personality, a bulldog with a pink bow philosophy, cards and simulated scenes were created to help Cara learn – and enjoy – a fresh presentation of herself.


Excerpt from sample scene:

INT. PRIVATE HOME DINING ROOM – EVENING

 

An interesting blend of influential people are gathered around a large table to eat, drink and talk – the perfect opportunity for CARA to memorably introduce herself and discuss what she does for a living.

 

     LEONA
Oh Hans––you’re not telling that same
story again, are you?

 

     HANS
Ha ha – yes yes…

 

     LEONA
Don’t believe him Cara – everything that
man touches turns to gold.

 

     HANS
Ha ha – Leona you flatter me.

 

      LEONA
Hans, I would like you to meet a friend
of mine: Cara Brust.

 

     HANS
(hand kiss) It is a pleasure to meet you.

 

     CARA
Hello.

 

Small talk ensues. Cara steers the conversation in the direction of describing ones self. Hans gives his answer, then –

 

     HANS
…And you? How might such a delicate
flower describe itself?

 

     CARA
Well - I’m a bulldog…
(pause) with a pink bow.



     HANS
Bulldog?!? With a…

 

     CARA
Pink bow.

 

     HANS
How does this mean?

 

     CARA
(snaps fingers) I’m tough…
(winks and smiles) But friendly.

 

     TEX
Yeeeehaw!

     

     LEONA
Tex–behave yourself.

 

     TEX
(removes hat) Sorry little lady.

 

     CARA
(laughs it off) That’s okay.
I believe the work I do sums
me up pretty well.

 

     HANS
And what is it you do?

 

     CARA
I’m a Production Efficiency expert.

 

     HANS
I do not know of zis?!?

     

     CARA
I provide very aggressive, very systematic
TV production consultation – with a smile.

 

     TEX
Tough. But pleasant.

 

Others chime in on the conversation.

 

     SHARON
Like a bulldog with a pink bow.

 

     GABE
Such chutzpah.

 

     FERNANDO
I am impressed – more wine!
