Explosion High Test Script

PAGE EIGHT

This is SkyShark’s introduction. Things should be light and airy, to give a distinct flavour to his pages.

Panel One
Outside a nightclub. It’s early evening and near the sea. This is an expository shot, so it’s from a distance, with a line of people waiting to get in, three of whom are the characters we see in the next panels.

Panel Two
Same shot, but there’s a swoosh of air which goes past the queue.

Panel Three
CHAD MANDRINK looks at his hand, at an absent bottle of overpriced beer.

  1. Chad: My beer!

Panel Four
MIKE BAYFAN looks at his neck, where his bling was.

  1. Mike: My gold chains!

Panel Five
FRANK SURPRISINGLY looks up at the top of his head, where his hat once was.

  1. Frank: My douchey hat!

Panel Six
Large panel. We see SkyShark! He’s a blue shark, flying through the air on extended fins, almost like sharky wings. He has a smile on his face, but let’s face it, sharks often look like they’re smiling. Kind of cute if they didn’t have all those rows of teeth and kill anything bleeding near them. SkyShark is wearing the douchey hat, the stolen gold chains and a pair of thin robot hands attached to a mechanical belt. One of the hands has the beer. He’s flying at us, like a real superhero might, it’s just that he’s got all these douchey accoutrements. And is a shark.

  1. SkyShark: SKYSHARK, BRAH!

TEST PAGE ONE
Five panels, similar to each other in composition to show the mundanity of the day, aside from the horror.

Panel One
A school hallway. Trouble, Kid Armour Junior and SkyShark are looking at their notes. In the background are other super-heroes, still walking while our lot are stationary.

  1. Trouble: I’ve got gadgets next. Anyone else?
  2. Kid Armour Junior: Me. I can’t wait.

Panel Two
Similar panel, Trouble and Kid Armour Junior look up at a speaker off-panel. SkyShark’s still looking at his notes.

  1. SkyShark: I’ve got thea– (interrupted)
  2. Speaker; SFX: Bing Bong!
  3. Speaker; Professor Explosion: ATTENTION STUDENTS!
  4. Speaker; Professor Explosion: BEES!

Panel Three
The exact same panel, but they all look confused.

[no dialogue]

Panel Four
Same panel, they’re looking at each other.

  1. Kid Armour Junior: Did he say–

Panel Five
A swarm of angry bees attack everyone in the corridor. They are EVERYWHERE. The hall is thick with them.

  1. Speaker: Professor Explosion: BEES!

TEST PAGE TWO

Panel One
Ezra J Rexington III stomps around the car park. He’s a big, angry t-rex and the cars have offended him. More likely, he’s looking for super-heroes to eat. They’re his favourite food.

[no dialogue]

Panel Two
Small panel. Ezra looks up.

[no dialogue]

Panel Three
The same view from panel one, but we pull back and are looking through a dorm window, over the shoulder of T-Rex Lad, a kid in a T-Rex costume (unsurprisingly) who has the power of the legendary dinosaur. His hand is pressed against the window.

[no dialogue]

Panel Four
Ezra stomps away, towards the woods.

[no dialogue]

Panel Five
Close on T-Rex Lad, through the glass. He sheds a single tear.

[no dialogue]
