INT. OFFICE – DAY

Extreme close-up on a small bell as it RINGS, caused by…

The opening of an office door, the bell attached to the top of it.

A delivery boy enters (Kean) with a package and clipboard.

He approaches the receptionist and places the package on the countertop. She’s beautiful, older and more sophisticated than him.

 

KEAN

(shyly)

Good morning, ma’am.

 

He hands her the clipboard to sign. As she takes it there fingers brush against one another’s. The smile she gives him causes Kean to blush. If he were any more red he’d probably faint.

 

RECEPTIONIST

Good morning.

 

She signs the clipboard and hands it back to him.

 

RECEPTIONIST

Have a good weekend.

 

KEAN

You too, ma’am.

 

Trying to stay calm and hide his infatuation Kean leaves the office.

 

START THE SONG

 

EXT. AMONGST THE CLOUDS – DAY

We travel fast through the blue sky, clouds whizzing by.

In the far distance, an image. As we get closer to it we realize it’s the back of the band.

The last section of the DRUMS before the rest of the MUSIC comes in the camera comes up and over Lemuel, on his drums.

The camera continues to fall back, bringing in Tatsi, Aaron and Alden. (AS MUSIC STARTS)

Slowly continuing to come down, the camera comes to rest at a low angle, bringing Kean into left frame as it does so. (Looking down to camera, making him look larger-than-life)

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

As I walked

along the sky

of my dream

you came alive

and it feels

you’ve made to change

my whole life

 

INT. RECEPTIONIST’S BEDROOM – NIGHT

The receptionist is asleep in bed. Even unconscious, she’s a beauty.

 

LYRICS

And I know

you will be there

there for me

to make me stare

 

EXT. AMONGST THE CLOUDS – DAY

Kean stands from his squatted position, his face coming near new camera angle.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

And it will be

always and

forever in my dreams

 

INT. KEAN’S BEDROOM – NIGHT

Kean is asleep in bed.

 

LYRICS

Dream

it makes me change

but not for real

 

EXT. AMONGST THE CLOUDS – DAY

Kean in the foreground, the others in the background.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

Cause I only see

see you smiling

in my dreams

and that’s the only time

I make you feel

what I have for you is real

 

Tatsi.

Aaron.

Alden.

Starting from a low angle Kean squatting while SINGING down into camera. As he stands, camera arises with him.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

As I walked

along the sky

of my dream

you came alive

And it feels you’ve made to change

my whole life

 

The receptionist is seated at a table in front of the band, alone. Wearing her hair pinned high and a shoulderless silk dress with matching long gloves she looks around, wondering why she’s the only one there.

 

LYRICS

And I know

you will be there

there for me

to make me stare

and it will be

always and

forever in my dreams

 

From behind her and approaching her side Kean, wearing a tuxedo and serenading with his mic, places his free hand on her bare shoulder.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

Come

to me and hold me

in my dream

 

His hand travels down her arm as he comes around and sits across from her, ending up holding her hand in his.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

Let me touch you

for a while

and don’t let me realize

that I am dreaming

‘Cause I’ll be missing you

 

Kean starts to turn his head towards the band.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

I’ll be missing you

 

The camera follows his look over there with a pan. He’s instantly already there with the band, turning around 360°.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

Whoaa…

 

Push in on Lemuel, the other three guys being taken out of frame as we do so.

We go back and forth between the receptionist, the band and Kean SINGING.

 

Kean Cipriano singing.

 

LYRICS

(Kean singing)

As I run along the sky

full of dreams hopes and lies

you just come to make me feel

that we’re supposed to be together

and I know you will be there

there for me to make me stare

and it will be always and

forever in my dreams

as I run along the sky

full of dreams hopes and lies

you just come to make me feel

that we’re supposed to be together

and I know you will be there

there for me to make me stare

and it will be always and

forever in my dreams

 

During INSTRUMENTAL SECTION more shots of the band performing.

The receptionist is still seated at the table. Kean, Tatsi with his guitar, Aaron with his guitar, Alden with his guitar, and Lemuel PLAYING his drumsticks on his chest (adding some humor – LOL!) all wearing tuxedos, begin to float in around her and rotate around her and the table. (While facing straight ahead, to camera)

Push in on the receptionist to a close-up, all five of the guys’ heads floating in rotation around hers.

 

LYRICS

(singing)

It’s time to come around

time to wake up now

time to come around

Yeah yeah

 

INT. RECEPTIONIST’S BEDROOM – MORNING

The receptionist starts to wake up, all five of the guys’ heads rotating around hers.

INT. OFFICE – DAY

The bell on the door RINGS as Kean comes in with a package and clipboard.

He approaches the receptionist, a little more confident than usual. She’s now a little shy, but still has that beautiful smile.

 

KEAN

(Handing her the clipboard)

Good morning, ma’am.

 

RECEPTIONIST

Good morning.

 

She signs for the package.

 

KEAN

Have a nice weekend?

 

She hands him back the clipboard. It’s like she wants to say more, but…

 

RECEPTIONIST

Tt was memorable.

 

Clipped to his belt, Kean’s cell phone RINGS in a text message.

His RINGTONE is the MELODY of itchy DA DA DA DA.

Shocked, with her mouth a little open, the receptionist can’t do anything but look into Kean’s eyes.

 

KEAN

See you tomorrow.

 

He smiles and leaves the office, leaving the receptionist speechless.
