AFTERLIFE (script outline)
By Brandon Marcos and Micah Matsunaga
Black Screen: Sound of footsteps walking, a car door opening, car door closing, and the car driving away
His eyes open rapidly. He looks around and he's laying down. He gets up and looks around. He is in laying down in the middle of the road. He is confused about how and when he got there. His head starts to hurt and he tries to massage it. He then walks away wondering how he got there.
He gets home and tries to talk to his mom but she doesn't talk back to him. He starts to talk about how he hasn't been so close to his mom as he was before. Her mom is always crying. They never talk to each other anymore.
Whenever he closes his eyes, he always visions him and his mom in a car driving. (And he has those visions through out the film)
Whenever he goes to school he is always ignored. Whenever he tries to join in on a conversation they keep talking to one another and ignore him. His desk seat was taken by someone else and he sits in the back now. It's almost as he disappeared from the world
He's walking around the city one afternoon and he is contemplating about the way things are. Trying to call his mom and friends but none of them are answering his calls.
He continues walking and he reaches a grave yard. He sees his mom putting flowers on a grave and he starts to call out to her. He starts to get closer but she doesn't talk to him. She just looks down at the grave. When he looks down to where she's looking, he sees a picture of him with flowers and leis around it. He starts to back up in confusion and tries to talk to his mom, but she doesn't answer him. He gets scared and runs away.
As he runs away, we see visions of the rest of the car ride. We finally see the ending of the car ride where he looks out of the car window and yells out to his mom who is driving (sound effects of car crashing)
He stops running, catches his breath, and he wipes his tears and looks back up. (Cut To Black)
