I wrote this brief script which illustrated out would be about 5 pages. I tried to keep my descriptions brief but had specific directions about the shot itself. I did my best to write my other writers working in comics. I tried to be very visual as well as moving the story along. As always, this is a work in progress and will continue to be revised but I think I am off to a great start.
Panel 1 Full Page
SITH INTERCEPTOR travels through space. Destination, pilot and cargo will be known in a few panels.
Caption – I must not fail my master.
Pilot is SITH APPRENTICE OST. We see Ost STRAIN to control his ship.
Pane l 2
Tight close up on Ost’s right hand grabbing his chest
Caption – LOUD SCREAM
Ost tries to program ship for autopilot
Computer readout in an Alien language
Caption – Translation: CORUSCANT
We SEE something bulging out of his chest. SOMETHING is trying to get out.
Caption – Inhuman SCREAM starts to bleed out of the panel
Exterior of SITH INTERCEPTOR. The SCREAM is cutoff. In space no one can hear you scream. We see the dark planet of Corascant up a head.
Wide of JEDI TEMPLE. We see statues of Jedis from the past MACE WINDU, OBI-WAN KENOBI, YODA, LUKE SKYWALKER, KIT FISTO, some we know and others we don’t.
We SEE a new Jedi Council. Some HUMAN and other ALIEN. MASTER JUT HORT, Nautolan, heads the Jedi Council. Second in Command is MASTER ERO J’ANN.
I will not support the creation on another clone race. Have we not studied the errs of our ways.
ALIEN JEDI MASTER
We have heard reports of a new threat to the Republic…
Tight closeup of J’ANN
Can you confirm such reports with facts, Master (ALIEN JEDI).
ALIEN JEDI MASTER
No. (Pause) But if we wait for evidence of fact, we may be too late.
HORT (off camera)
Generations ago, the Jedi were lead down a forged path of lies and deceit by Darth Sidious. We were lead to believe Chancellor Palpatine led us in the best interest to use a clone army. With one order, the Jedi were almost….no more by the very army we trusted.
FULL PAGE BROKEN UP BY 3 VERTICAL PANELS
SITH INTERCEPTOR is entering the outer atmosphere
If there is a threat…
We will do as Jedis have done before
Bring order to chaos…
SITH INTERCEPTOR trails off into the distance
The SITH INTERCEPTOR crashes in one of the SKYCRAPERS. (Think 9/11)
With our lives.
