INT. MAINSITE – DAY

Two individuals, JORDAN and AVERY, are strolling through MAINSITE Contemporary Art for their first date together. Both are in their early 20s and for the purpose of this script and casting, genders are undefined.

Avery suggested a visit to Downtown Norman’s art galleries as they are an artist themselves.

Jordan, who we’ll be following throughout the story, doesn’t care much for art.

AVERY
(looking at a work of art)
Such emotion. I love what the artist is trying to say about modern society.

Jordan looks at a piece of art that looks like a monster.

JORDAN
(clueless)
Yeah, I agree this says a lot. (Jordan looks at the price.) From this price, they’re expecting way too much.

AVERY
Artists got to eat too. Creating art is hard work.

JORDAN
Doesn’t seem that hard.

AVERY
Things might appear to be simple, but each stroke can take hours of thought from years of experience.

Avery rushes over to the next piece of art while Jordan slouches along.

AVERY
Look here. I love their work. I saw them in the Paseo last month. You should’ve seen the exhibition. It was fantastic, which reminds me. I have to show you the art in the alleyway behind here.

JORDAN
I think we’ve seen everything here.

AVERY
We have? I guess so. Wow. How about we get something to eat next? What are you in the mood for? Oh! Afterwards we have to check out The Depot as they got this band I want to introduce you to.

On the screen, two options display: “Dinner at The Meating Place” or “Drinks at Michelangelo’s.”

With the text options, windows will display showing some transitional shots of the character going to the next location/scene to help viewers know where to go next. These shots would be a behind the character walking shot that can speed up in editing to be in sync.

EXT. MICHELANGELO’S COFFEE – DAY

Regardless of the choice, the script is the same for both locations. We see establishing shots of them entering the building.

INT. MICHELANGELO’S COFFEE – CONTINUOUS

Inside, there is a montage scene of Avery going on and on about art with Jordan nodding.

AVERY
Anyway, enough about my thoughts. What’s been your favorite piece of art you’ve seen tonight?

JORDAN
I thought the dog was cute.

AVERY
That was cute.

JORDAN
I don’t know. If I’m being honest, all this art is boring. Like it doesn’t even make sense.

AVERY
So, you didn’t like anything?

JORDAN
Pretty much.

AVERY
Well. I guess I’m sorry I wasted your time.

Avery leaves the business, upset.

Jordan sighs, feeling like a jerk for making Avery feel bad, and chases after.

EXT. DOWNTOWN NORMAN – MAIN STREET – CONTINUOUS

Jordan steps outside, looking for Avery.

Avery is nowhere to be seen.

JORDAN
Avery couldn’t have gone far. I bet they went to check out that alley art.

( For the thoughts, maybe have a frame in the corner pop up of their head saying their thought while the bigger screen shows the action to speed things along. )

Jordan crosses the street.

Jordan looks at the two alleyways.

JORDAN
Which way?

On the screen displays three text options:

“Go East”

“Go West, Behind MAINSITE”

“Get Ice Cream at Rusty’s.”
