FADE IN:

INT. VAULT

The thick heavy door to a vault opens and AS MUSIC STARTS we slowly enter, (bright lights inside shifting in accordance to MUSIC) pushing on in to the bare yet futuristic-style room of safe keeping and towards a beauty atop her wide centered pedestal, so still in her pose she could be a statue…

As soon as MICHAEL’S VOCALS START camera goes from pushing in to a continuous rotation around the pedestal, (about a foot above Beauty, same slow pace) simultaneous with Michael sliding into view from behind her and looking at her from her side as she stares out in coldness.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Well… Well…

He JumpCuts to her opposite side (slightly moves his head with the adjustment so as to look straight at her – a reaction he’ll do with every JumpCut)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Well… Well…

He JumpCut’s to her front… (From this point onwards Michael will always be subtly dancing in place)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

If I could tear down these walls

that keep you and I apart

Back…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

I know I could claim your heart

and our perfect love will start

Frontal 45° angle… (Her right shoulder)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

But girl you just want to prove

of the things that I do

Back to 45° angle… (Her left shoulder. Camera always rotating/Beauty always stone-faced and nonresponsive)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

When all I do is for you

but still you say it ain’t cool

Staying with the rotation we just jump in closer to where they are in medium close-up… (Michael still JumpCutting right before the start of every verse and always facing camera. As for her, faces camera sometimes, depending on rotation)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

If there’s somebody else

Extreme close-up, multiple camera angles (one for each word) of Michael shifting body parts with his dance movements…

LYRICS

He can’t love you like me

Back to the medium close-up…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And he says he’ll treat you well

Extreme close-ups…

LYRICS

He can’t treat you like me

Medium close-up…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And he’s buying diamonds and pearls

Extreme close-ups…

LYRICS

He can’t do it like me

Medium close-up…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And he’s taking you all across the world

Extreme close-ups…

LYRICS

He can’t treat you like me

Rotating camera back a little farther than original angle Michael JumpCuts to foreground and SINGS to camera… (Beauty, background)

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

So why ain’t you feelin’ me

(Camera staying at that distance) Michael JumpCuts back to her side, his dance a little bigger than previous.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

She’s invincible

Back to Michael/foreground, Beauty/background…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

I can do anything

… Michael JumpCut’s to her side…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

She’s invincible

Michael/foreground, Beauty/background…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Even when I beg and plead

… JumCuts back to her side…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

She’s invincible

… Michael/foreground, Beauty/background…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Girl won’t give into me

… JumpCuts back to her side…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

She’s invincible

Camera rotation fast forwards into a 180, with Michael simultaneously JumpCutting to face it when it reaches opposite side and continues rotation…

Lyrics

(Michael singing)

Well… Well…

He JumpCuts…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

See…

JumpCuts again…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Well… Well…

And again…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Come on now…

Camera rotation speed-rewinds into a 180, with Michael simultaneously JumpCutting to face it when it reaches opposite side and continues rotation…

He goes back to JumpCutting on every verse as he SINGS out to Beauty from different spots on the wide pedestal…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Now many times I’ve told you

of all the things I would do

but I can’t seem to get through

no matter how I try to

So tell me how does it seem

that you ain’t checking for me

when I know that I could be

more than you could ever dream

Back to covering them in Medium close-ups as previously done during this section…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And if there’s somebody else

… As with the Extreme close-ups…

LYRICS

He can’t love you like me

Medium close-up…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And he says he’ll treat you well

Extreme close-ups…

LYRICS

He can’t treat you like me

Medium close-up…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And he’s buying diamonds and pearls

Extreme close-ups…

LYRICS

He can’t do it like me

Medium close-up…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

And he’s taking you all across the world

Extreme close-ups…

LYRICS

He can’t treat you like me

Back to previous coverage of Michael in foreground/Beauty in background…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

So why ain’t you feelin’ me

Then beside her…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

She’s invincible

Michael foreground/Beauty background…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

 I can’t do anything

Beside her…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

She’s invincible

Michael foreground/Beauty background…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Even when I beg and plead

Beside her…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

She’s invincible

Somewhat switching up the camera rotation we slightly adjust to cover Michael rotating around Beauty with a side moonwalk…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Now some way I’ll have to prove

all that I said I would do

Giving you everything

fulfilling your fantasy

Then maybe you’ll change your mind

and finally give in time

Then I’ll be showing you

what other men are

Then JumpCuts to all five points of the wide pedestal, (think the points of an imaginary star) popping up on each point with EACH SYLLABLE SUNG.

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

Supposed to do for you

My baby

Michael dances in place (background) as a rapper/doctor Pops in beside Beauty and looks into her ears, eyes and throat while RAPPING…

LYRICS

(Rapper rapping)

(Rap)

Rapper pops out and Michael JumpCuts into his place…

… And continues to JumpCut all around Beauty on the round wide pedestal as he dances…

LYRICS

(Michael singing)

(Chorus X3)

Right after last “invincible” camera shoots back in reverse out of the vault, a female hand quickly shutting the thick door and spinning its solid rotating handle.
