Since we're only working on the intro sequence for our neo-noir, the script does not call for that much to be said, especially since we'll be cutting up a lot of silent action in the editing.
Our primary interest, script-wise will the be the brief introductory narration, presented in a sort of 'pause' in the fast-paced action of the sequence.
Since I'm co-writing the script, here's an idea for our narrative:
EXT. OPEN FIELD. DAY
NATHAN runs towards the camera, stopping close. He looks deadpan in to the lens.
I know what you're thinking.
"What's this silly wanker gone and done?"
Truth is, I haven't got a clue what's going on.
But, it's all downhill from here.
NATHAN looks over his shoulder, seeing his pursuers and looks back in to the camera.
