Three actors wanted. Male, about 25, two females about 20-23. Each actor will sing a funny song.  Bad singing OK!

Lots of the movie will be shot while walking, utilizing the camera dolly shown in the top video.

There will be 3 songs, sung twice by each actor.

The songs will have special effects like you will see in the second and third video here.

It will be a quick shoot! Two takes maximum.

There is pay. The script will be workshoped during rehearsals. Everything here is subject to change. It will be funny. I expect to have it shown on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and youtube Pay Per View, and I will try to get it on regular TV channels too. You will get seen!

PRODUCER wanted too! Newbie OK! Only a 7-10 day shoot! (If all goes well, depending on weather, and how quick the actors are.)







Acting Dreams - The Lost Lemon
possible alternate title
Acting Dreams - The Magic Lemon
(both are working titles)
A screenplay by Steve Cosmic
Draft 3.1 October 25, 2016

A soap opera musical comedy. Three characters.  There are 3 songs, sung a capella. Music added later.  Mistakes OK!  Bad singing OK! This is a comedy!

At rehearsals, the script will be workshoped a bit, so there may be some changes. There may be typos etc.

TEMPORARY NOTE for some additions to the script. These comic analogies and maybe others will be added. The listening characters sometimes nod at the great wisdom they are hearing. Other times they look confused. They are not in any special order here.

"That's like a puppy hoping it will grow up to be a lawyer, specializing in defending guilty celebrities."

"It's like a hooker wanting to get her real estate licence, but knowing she'll
probably end up desperately marrying one of her Johns"

"I fell like the Energizer Bunny being forced to run on cheap batteries made
with child labour in a third world country"

"I felt/feel like an actress who know's she has a drug and alcohol problem that will ruin
her career before it gets started and she'll probably become a hooker who
tells all her Johns she's going to Hollywood"

"I feel like a pair of running shoes that never run because they are too big for the feet
they are on plus the guy is 90."

"I felt like a dog that took 10 years to realize it's a dog. 10 years is old for a dog"

"I felt like a marathon runner who shows up at the starting line and says where is
everybody? And someone says they left an hour ago."

There will probably be a few more too. (I woke up a few nights ago with a great
one but didn't write it down and in the morning I couldn't remember what it was.)


NOTE: This script contains notes to make the movie easier to visualize, so that potential actors can decide if they want to apply for the roles.

This is a CHARACTER DRIVEN MOVIE. No lavish sets, the locations are ordinary, but the characters captivate the audience. They are funny sometimes, but don't realize it. They do not try to be funny. They suspect they are soap opera characters, and they are!

Molly, 20's, shapely, attractive, is studying acting. She supports herself as a movie extra, model and waitress. She was raised on a farm, and knows how to ride horses, and drive a farm tractor. When she was about 7, her father took her to a car show, where she was fascinated by a bikini model standing by a car. She overheard the bikini model say "This is the best job in the world." That event has shaped her life.

She idolizes Pamela Anderson and wants to be like her, in movies and on TV. Her acting experience so far has been as a movie extra where she is usually in a bikini, and in student films. She likes being in a bikini and showing off. She is willing to be in most any movie.

Her best friend Silvie, is also in her 20's. She is a university student and lives on her student loans and help from her parents. She is studying film history, and she has memorized some scenes from famous movies. She can impersonate Marilyn Monroe. She is taking acting classes, and unlike most people she understands Molly and does not think she is weird.

Silvie married an upcoming film director, and the marriage lasted two weeks. After that she had a lesbian relationship for a short while but decided being a lesbian was not for her.  She wants to play serious dramatic roles but says she would wear a bikini in a movie to get the job.

Ryan, about 25-30, handsome, fit and muscular. He is an aspiring actor. He takes acting classes and works delivering pizzas. He wears tops that show his muscles. He can juggle a bit, and practices it sometimes. He hopes it will get him a role in a movie.

OUTSIDE-DAY

Molly walks out of a small McDonald's, carrying a coffee. She is wearing a bikini under a thigh length wrap top, and she has the belt adjusted so the wrap is partially open at the front, so people can see she is wearing a bikini. She walks out of McDonald's licking an soft ice cream cone. She gets a bit of the ice cream on her nose and wipes her nose with her hand.

A few steps farther along she licks her ice cream cone and the ice cream falls on the sidewalk.

MOLLY
Fuck! (It will be bleeped out.... bleeps are funny!)

She keeps walking. She will walk in several locations.
(She is walking behind a camera on a dolly) She looks around as she walks to see if anyone is looking, and then raises one of her arms to smell her armpit. She looks around some more and then does the same on her other armpit. Satisfied she does not smell too bad she continues walking. Sometimes she gives extended looks to people or vehicles she sees as she walks.

While she is walking a song, Don't Drop The Baby is heard. The song is from a later scene where she sings it a capella. She walks onto a sidewalk and continues to a low rise apartment. She enters the apartment.

CUT TO:

Interior of apartment

Molly enters an apartment as the song ends. Her roommate Sylvie is home.

INTERIOR, DAY, the apartment of Molly and Sylvie.

Sylvie is in summer atire which includes a top which shows cleavage. She is anxiously texting on her phone.

SYLVIE
Hi,...... I might have an audtion! I'm  textting back......

MOLLY
Cool.

Molly sits down. Sylvie finishes texting.

MOLLY
What's the audition for?

SYLVIE
It's playing a hooker in a western. It's set in the 1800's. There's aliens. And dinosaurs. .... and zombies. And vampires of course.

MOLLY
Of course. Is it a paid gig?

SYLVIE
For sure. It's fairly big budget. There's a big star too. I forget his name.... he's an English guy with normal ears.

MOLLY
Sounds good. When do you audition?

SYLVIE
I'm not sure if I audition yet. I should know later. I'm excited!

MOLLY
Well, break a leg.

SYLVIE.
Thanks. What does that mean anyway, break a leg?

MOLLY
I don't know really. Everyone says it.
(beat)
I broke my leg once and it really hurt.

SYLVIE
I'm gonna try and put together a hooker outfit. Well, if I get the audition, I sure
hope so.

MOLLY
I'll help you put together an outfit.... if you want. I've got some
clothes that look slutty.

SYLVIE
Yeah..... I know you do.  I remember that time I came
home and you were wearing one of your slutty outfits,
playing Monolopy by yourself.

MOLLY
Yeah well I was feeling down. I got stood up for
a date. It's something I used to do when I was young.
(beat) It's fun sometimes, if you win.

Sylvie gives Molly an incredulous look.

MOLLY
Sometimes I cheat when I play. You're the only one
I've ever told, so don't tell anyone.

SYLVIE
My lips are sealed. I would cheat at video games
but I don't know how.

MOLLY
I know how! I can show you!

SYLVIE
Cool. Then I can get a high score. (beat)
I was just going to make some lunch. You want KD?

MOLLY
Sure! That sounds great!

Sylvie walks into the kitchen and starts making KD.

Molly digs around in a cardboard box and pulls out her two antiques. One is an Elvis vase and the other is an Amputee Barbie doll. She displays them on the table and combs Barbie's hair a bit while Sylvie cooks.

Sylvie walks into the dining area with two plates of KD and forks. There are peas in the KD.

MOLLY
Wow, you added peas. You went all out. You didn't have to be so fancy!

SYLVIE
I know you like it when I cook it this way.

MOLLY
This is AWSOME! Thank you!

SYLVIE
I see you dug out your antiques.

MOLLY
Yeah, I'm thinking of selling them. I might put them on eBay.
If I can get enough for them I might take that acting course in
New York I was telling you about. (beat)
It's expensive.

SYLVIE
That's a big commitment and it takes a year. It would probably
cost you $30,000. Do you think they'll get that much?

MOLLY
Well the guy I bought them from said they were worth
a hundred thousand. It was a yard sale. I paid $300 for them. He wanted $500
but I got a discount for standing around for the day in my bikini.

SYLVIE
You wear bikinis a lot.

MOLLY
Well I think it is my key to getting acting gigs. Plus I like the attention.

SYLVIE
Nothing wrong with that, if it works. (beat)
I really like the vase. I'd give you 50 thousand for it if I had it.

They eat their KD.  Molly adjusts the vase in the protective box. She stands Barbie up beside the vase. They admire them.

MOLLY
They look good together. I wonder if I should try to sell them
together.  I might get a better price.

SYLVIE
Yeah, you might. You're sort of like Barbie.

MOLLY
Thanks.

SYLVIE
I want to be like Marilyn Monroe. I want to be in movies like she was in. No vampires or hookers.
(beat) But I'll be a hooker to get started. Or even wear a bikini.

MOLLY
You're gonna make it big, don't worry.

SYLVIE
Thanks.

Sylvie eats some KD....

SYLVIE
Molly, does it seem sometimes to you that we are kind of living in a script? Like we are living in a soap opera?

MOLLY
All the time. I have felt that my whole life.

SYLVIE
Maybe we are. I wonder what it's called..... The soap opera.

MOLLY
Maybe it's called the no name soap opera..... I know!
The Wannabe Stars!

SYLVIE
Hmm, maybe. Do you want to go for a walk after we
finish eating?

SYLVIE
Hmm, maybe. Do you want to go for a walk after we
finish eating?

MOLLY
Sure. Let's go down by the beach. I can wear my bikini.

SYLVIE
It's cold out.

MOLLY
Yeah I know. But people still swim when it's cold. (beat)
Though they wear wet suits. I'll wear my cardigan over
my bikini.

FADE OUT

FADE IN

Kitsilano Beach park. They are walking along on the pavement. Walking behind the camera on a dolly. Sylvie is wearing shorts or a skirt and a sleeveless top. Molly is wearing her bikini under her wrap, or perhaps long cardigan sweater or similar, with her bikini showing a bit. They are drinking take out coffee as they walk.

THIS WALKING PART MUST BE WELL MEMORIZED. WE WILL DO A MAXIMUM OF TWO TAKES.

MOLLY
I think they shouldn't allow dogs here.

SYLVIE
Why not?

MOLLY
Cuz they poop and this is a public place.

SYLVIE
But the people pick up after them.

MOLLY
Not always......

They walk in silence for about 20 seconds, sipping at their coffees. Molly suddenly speaks.

MOLLY
Look out!

Molly pushes Sylvie aside.... Sylvie had been about to step in some dog poop. There will be a close up of their legs/feet and dog poop.

SYLVIE
Wow, you saved me! Thanks a lot. You are such a good friend,
and such a good person.

MOLLY
I try to be your good friend. But I'm not really a good person.

SYLVIE
Why do you say that?

MOLLY
Well, you know Casandra or Princess Casandra as I call her,
in our acting class?

SYLVIE
Yeah, she thinks she's such a great actress because shw was in a deodorant
commercial. And because she's got great boobs.

MOLLY
Mine are great too. (beat) Anway I was walking with her one
time and she was walking towards some dog poop and I never
warned her. She stepped right in it!

SYLVIE
And what happend? After that.

MOLLY
She swore like crazy. And she started to cry because
she was on her way to an audition. I didn't let her
see, but I was smiling when she wasn't looking at me.

I can be such a bitch sometimes.

SYLVIE
Yeah, well who can't be?

MOLLY
I think she made a porn movie.
(numerous beats)
And she's got such a weird voice.
(numerous beats)
And I think her boobs are fake.
(beats)
And her hair style is stupid.
(beats)
And she wears too much makeup.
(beats)
And the outfits she wears....

SYLVIE
Enough already.

Molly looks at Sylvie. She had wanted to keep belittleing Casandra but she doesn't.

MOLLY
I'm such a bitch.

SYLVIE
Umhuu.

They continue walking and walk by a guy juggling 3 lemons. It is Ryan, and he is wearing a sleeveless shirt that shows his muscles, or he may be shirtless, with his shirt hanging from his belt. He glances at the girls while he juggles and loses his concentration and drops his lemons. The girls smile as they walk by.

MOLLY
I think he likes me.

SYLVIE
Why do you think that?

MOLLY
Because I made him drop his lemons.

SYLVIE
I made him drop his lemons, he was looking at me!

MOLLY
Whatever. Stop for a sec.
I want to look at him.

They stop to look, and Ryan can be seen juggling in the distance

SYLVIE
Do you think he's smart?

MOLLY
Who cares.

SYLVIE
(sighs) Yeah,  right.

They continue walking and leave the beach area and walk on a street, heading home. They are on a residential street sidewalk with the ocean in the background, walking behind the camera on a dolly. Molly finishes her coffee.

MOLLY
That coffee was good. I want another one.

SYLVIE
We can't.

MOLLY
Why not?

SYLVIE
It's not in the script.

Molly looks perplexed a bit, as she is not excatly sure what Sylvie means. They continue walking. Several beats.

MOLLY
Well. what's next?

SYLVIE
The car chase scene.

Molly mouths the words "the car chase scene" as if to help herself figure out what Sylvie means. At that very moment they are at the intersection of a street and a lane, and a car pulls into the lane in front of them. They almost walk into the car on the passengers side. Sylvie hits the car with her purse. The car stops. Sylvie runs to the drivers side of the car and hits the car again. Molly hits the hood of the car.

SYLVIE
Hey.....!!! Watch where you're going!!! (runs to passenger side of car)
You almost hit us!!

MOLLY
Yeah!! You should be more careful!!

They continue to hit the car as the driver pulls forward. The driver looks scared.  The girls run after the car, flailing the air with their purses as they run. They speak as they run. When Molly speaks she is not really sure why she is speaking or running.

SYLVIE
You idiot!!

MOLLY
(looks at Sylvie)
Yeah, you idiot!

SYLVIE
Wait till we catch you!!

MOLLY
Yeah, wait till we catch you!!

They run through the lane and catch up to the car which has stopped at the intersection of the lane and the next street. The driver had to wait for traffic. The girls catch up to the car and start hitting the car again. The car pulls across the street and into the lane ahead. The girls run after him. They speak as they run.

SYLVIE
Stop!!

MOLLY
Yeah stop! (several beats) What will we do if we catch him?

SYLVIE
We don't catch him.

They are both puffing from the running. Sylvie stops and Molly does the same. They put their hands on their knees, leaning over, puffing like they have run a long Olympic race. As they are stopping, Sylvie
brushes Molly to the side a bit.

MOLLY
What?

SYLVIE
You're on my mark.

MOLLY
Oh, sorry.

Shot of their feet and the ground showing two big chalk X's on the ground.

MOLLY
What do we do now?

SYLVIE
We go home.

They start walking back home. A Production Assistant, wearing PA gear walks into frame, looks at the girls and the camera and then runs out of frame. She has an apologetic/sorry look on her face. (Alma)

FADE OUT

FADE IN
Molly and Sylvie enter their apartment. Molly looks in the fridge while Sylvie sits down. Sylvie checks her text messages. Molly enters dining area and sits down.

MOLLY
It looked like that guy was trying to drive right in front of us.

Sylvie gives her a knowing look.

MOLLY
And why did the camera man give him a 100 bucks?

Another knowing look from Sylvie.

SYLVIE
That is a mystery.

MOLLY
There's nothing in the fridge. We should do some shopping.

SYLVIE
OK. We should walk through the park on our way to Safeway.

MOLLY
It's longer that way. Why should we go through the park?

SYLVIE
You'll see......

Molly is puzzeled.

SYLVIE
Got some money? It's your turn to buy.

MOLLY
Yeah I do.

They get their purses and walk out.

FADE OUT
FADE IN

They walk along a residential street and they come to a park. They walk to cross the playing field. Diagonally to their path, Ryan is walking towards them, juggling 3 lemons. He drops one or more somtimes and picks up and continues. When he gets closer the girls notice him and start to get excited. They can see that their paths will converge in the center of the playing field. They get close in the center of the field. Ryan has his shirt hanging from his belt. They all stop to keep from bumping into each other.

Ryan drops a lemon and it rolls towards the girls. One of them picks it up and tosses it back to him.

RYAN
Thanks.
(beat)
I'm practicing my juggling. I want to get in a movie.

SYLVIE
I want to get in a movie too!

MOLLY
Me too!

RYAN
I'm taking acting classes.

SYLVIE AND MOLLY TOGETHER
Me too!

RYAN
I've got an audition coming up.

SYLVIE AND MOLLY TOGETHER
Me too!

MOLLY
Well maybe. There's a pretty good chance.

SYLVIE
Yeah there's a good chance for me too.

RYAN
I'm going to sing a song at my audition.
Do you want to hear it?

SYLVIE AND MOLLY TOGETHER
Yes!

Ryan clears his throat and prepares to sing. He juggles as he starts the song, but drops his lemons and gives up juggling and keeps singing.

RYAN sings in any style and tempo. Some words can be changed/added and if so, the actor may get writing
credits too. He sings the song looking at them both equally, though they both think he is singing
just for them. There will be close up cutaways to the girls faces, and they are moved and react like it is the most beautiful love song ever written!

I loved the way you walked and smiled
And how the sun shone in your hair

I dropped a lemon it fell out of my hand
I couldn't help but stare.

But I'm only an actor who delivers pizza
Waiting for my big break

I want to juggle my way into your heart,
Plus it would be nice to do ya,
I want to share my life and my lemons too,
Plus it would be nice to do ya.

I've been unlucky at love except for my dog,
His name's Roger and he loves me,

When you got close I liked the way you smelled
Kinda like violets and tangerine.

Your teeth look fairly good and not too crooked
I'll bring you some whitening toothpaste

I want to juggle my way into your heart,
Plus it would be nice to do ya,
I want to share my life and my lemons too,
Plus it would be nice to do ya.
I'd really like to do ya.

MOLLY
Bravo! Wow! (she claps her hands)

SYLVIE
(claps her hands)
You're a great singer! Such a beautiful song!

MOLLY
You have a nice voice!

RYAN
Thank you. This is the first time I have sung it in public.
I'm a bit nervous about singing it at my audition.

SYLVIE
You'll do fine. They'll love you!

MOLLY
Yeah, break a leg!

RYAN
Thanks. That's encouraging. I want to give you one of
my lemons.

He tosses one of his lemons towards the girls. Neither catch it. It lands right between them. It is not apparent if he was wanting one of them to catch it.  Sylvie picks it up.

RYAN
I can't give you two, because then I would have only one to juggle. Even with two it wouldn't
be much of a movie.

SYLVIE
With two you can still get on a soap.

RYAN
Really?

SYLVIE
Positive (as she winks at Molly)
Molly and I are living in a soap. Kind of.

Ryan looks puzzeled. Molly is a bit less puzzeled.

RYAN
The lemon is magic by the way.

MOLLY AND SYLVIE TOGETHER
Magic!!?

RYAN
Yeah.... you'll see.

The girls look at each other.

RYAN
Well, see you.

SYLVIE AND MOLLY TOGETHER
See you!

Ryan walks away juggling his two lemons. He sings his song as he walks away. The girls head towards Safeway. They are seen walking on a sidewalk. Sylvie is carrying the lemon, juggling it once in a while.

SYLVIE
Hey, I'm pretty good. Well, not as good as Ryan.

Molly looks jealous. She wants to carry the lemon.

MOLLY
Can I try it?

SYLVIE
Oh I guess so.

Sylvie tosses the lemon to Molly. Molly is delighted to get it. She juggles it a bit. They continue walking.

In the distance the figure of a man is seen. It is the driver of the car that they chased. At first his face cannot be seen, as he is holding binoculars which block his face. He lowers the binoculars and lets them hang from a neck strap, and keeps looking at the girls. He smells his armpits, and walks away. The girls don't notice him.

They enter Safeway.

FADE OUT

FADE IN

The girls exit Safeway carrying one bag each. They walk home. Shots of them walking home, some of which are while walking behind the camera dolly.

CUT TO
Their apartment. They had put the lemon in one of the bags with their groceries. They set their bags on the counter. They don't see it, but the lemon rolls out behind one of the bags. Sylvie walks into the living room and sits down. She smells her arm pits.

Molly starts putting the groceries away. One counter drawer is open a bit. Molly moves one of the bags and the lemon rolls into the drawer. She closes the drawer without seeing the lemon in it.

She opens a package of fish sticks and nukes a few. She looks for the lemon and can't find it. She looks towards Sylvie. She starts looking everywhere in the kitchen. The cupboards, the fridge, the freezer. She moves everything on the counter. She starts to get frantic.

She looks everywhere again. She starts to slam cupboards. Sylvie looks over. Molly stomps over to where Sylvie is sitting in the living room.

MOLLY
OK. Where is it?

SYLVIE
Where's what?

MOLLY
The lemon. I want the lemon for my fish sticks.

SYLVIE
It's in one of the bags. That's where I saw it last.

Molly stomps off into the kitchen and looks again. She looks in places she didn't look before. She gets angry and stomps back to Sylvie.

MOLLY
OK, give it to me! The jokes over. I want my fucking lemon! (Fucking will be bleeped out.....
bleeps are funny)

SYLVIE
I don't have it. Plus I don't think it's  "your " lemon.

MOLLY
It's my fucking lemon and you do fucking have it! (two bleeps)

SYLVIE
Quit swearing at me! I don't have the fucking (bleep) lemon!
(beat)
Go look again. It must be there somewhere.

MOLLY
(still hot) I've looked every fucking where (bleep)

She stomps off and looks in the fridge and cupboards again. Finally she looks in the drawer which
she missed before. She walks slowly over to Sylvie.

MOLLY
I found it. It somehow got in one of the drawers. I am sorry I swore at you. And sorry
I accused you of hiding it.

Sylvie stands.

SYLVIE
That's OK. Let me hug you.
We're still friends.

They hug.

MOLLY
He did say it was a magic lemon. Maybe it hid itself.

They both laugh. Molly brings her fish sticks, knife, fork and lemon to the dining table and eats. Sylvie gets out a sheet of paper with some words written on it.

MOLLY
There's more fish sticks if you want any and there's still lots of juice in the lemon.
(she holds it up)

SYLVIE
Thanks. I'll have some in a bit. I want to spend some time working on
my song. I'm almost finished.

Molly finishes her fish sticks and takes her dish and utensils into the kitchen.

MOLLY.
OK. I'll go to my room and put together a slutty outfit for your audition.

SYLVIE
Thanks. That would be nice. I appreciate it. Oh, how slutty will it be?

MOLLY
(mischevious) You'll see!

Molly exits through the kitchen.

CUT TO

Sylvie is sitting on the couch, with a clipboard and paper and pen. She is working on a song she has been working on for some time. She writes some lines on the paper, crosses out some, sings a line, sings it again with different emphasis, underlines a word. She smells her armpits. She sings the last 3 or 4 lines aloud, and gets a satisfied look on her face. Her song is finished. (this should take about two minutes)

She decides to sing the song into her phone and record it. She starts singing

CUT TO
Molly coming into the living room area carrying some clothes for Sylvie.

MOLLY
I put together a slutty outfit for you. I think this will look
good on you.

SYLVIE
Thanks. I'll try it on.

Sylvie tries on the slutty outfit, Molly helps her. They laugh and have fun as they do so. Sylvie will be auditioning for a movie set in the 1800's. Her outfit is modern. It doesn't matter. They will do improv dialogue for about 3-4 minutes, it will be edited to about 2 minutes. No nudity.

MOLLY
That looks good! You look like a real hooker.

Sylvie looks in mirror.

SYLVIE
Yeah, it looks OK. I want to be noticed at my audition. Hey,
I got an idea!

MOLLY
What?

SYLVIE
I finished writing my song. Why don't I sing it
in this outfit? And would you
record it on your phone?

MOLLY
Sure.

SYLVIE
Just a minute, I want to fix my hair better.

Sylvie exits.

FADE OUT
(Green screen is set up for special effects)
FADE IN

Sylvie is standing, ready to sing her song. She looks at Molly who is holding
her phone in two hands, recording.

MOLLY
OK, I'm recording.... Action!!

Sylvie sings her song. She looks at an imaginary audience sometimes, and sometimes at Molly. She does not look at the camera.

Title....A Movie Hooker
The actress can sing it in her own style and
change it a bit. It doesn't have to rhyme and be like a proper song. 

I'm taking acting classes
I wannabe like Marilyn Monroe
Except not overdose on drugs
I wanna do it with a president
And not with a sleazy director

I watch old Marilyn movies
I can kinda act like her
But they give me only hooker roles
I'm nice but I'm a movie hooker
And I have to wear slutty outfits

Why oh why do I get these roles?
I'm almost actually practically a virgin
Yeah I'm almost actually practically a virgin

They say someone's gotta do it
But why does it have to be me?
I'm a nice girl and I don't do it for money,
Though one time a guy he asked me
But I said no go fuck yourself  (bleeped)

Why oh why do I get these roles?
I'm almost actually practically a virgin
I'm sorta almost actually a virgin
Yeah I'm almost actually practically a virgin. 

(I like some of the lines being "too" long and therefore harder to sing. Steve)

Song is sung a capella by Sylvie with music put in later. It is silly and absurd but she will sing it like it is a great song. Colourful backgrounds which change, some sort of psychedelic, will be put behind her as she sings.

Sylvie can sing it however she wants. She can impersonate Marilyn Monroe, or make an attempt.

Cutaways to Molly recording with her phone, with smiles on her face like she is witnessing a great song and a great performance.

The song ends. Molly whoops, Sylvie bows to imaginary audicence and Molly's phone. Molly stops recording.

MOLLY
How did you do that?

SYLVIE
Do what?

MOLLY
Make the background change. That weird sky and everything.

Sylvie was unaware that the background was changing.
Molly looks right at the camera man, and then at the camera.

MOLLY
Something is going on........ and I think it has something to do with the guy in the car too.

Sylvie looks at Molly without revealing that she knows they are in a soap.

MOLLY
Well your song was great. I recorded it all.

SYLVIE
OK, thanks. Maybe I'll put it on youtube. I feel like some tea.
You want some tea?

MOLLY
Sounds good.

FADE OUT

FADE IN

(This may be shot on my patio with the palm trees, or else inside)

Sylvie is pouring tea. They sit at the table opposite each other. Molly is fussing with her phone.

MOLLY
That's weird, no backgrounds.

SYLVIE
What do you mean?

MOLLY
I'm playing back your song and there are no weird backgrounds, just the room
here.

Molly shows her phone to Sylvie. There is a close up of her phone.

MOLLY
But now there's no backgrounds.

SYLVIE
Maybe you were imaginning it?

MOLLY
I saw it. It sure seemed real.

They sip their tea.

MOLLY
I've been thinking about Ryan, the lemon guy.
He was hot.

SYLVIE
Why are you thinking about him? You're in a relationship. What about Owen?

MOLLY
Well,.. we kind of split up. Actually we split up.

SYLVIE
Why did you split up?

MOLLY
He sold his car.

SYLVIE
Oh.

MOLLY
What about you? How are things with you and Pam?

SYLVIA
Uhh, we split up. I changed my mind about being a lesbian.
(beat)
It's not that great.
(beat)
And she sold her car.

MOLLY
Oh.

They sip their tea.

MOLLY
Hey I've got an idea! I can sing my song! The one that guy wrote for me and we
were going to put it on youtube? I can sing it now and
you can record it.

SYLVIE
OK, and you can put it on youtube.

MOLLY
Cool.

Molly stands up and they position themselves for the song performance. Sylvie holds her phone in two hands to record. Molly sings to an imaginary audience and to Sylvia's phone. The actress here is encouraged to sing it in her own style, and pace. A country and western approach might work. A cowboy hat can be worn perhaps. Molly is in a bikini with the wrap open. She is expressive and uses her hands and arms as she sings. She may take her wrap off part way through her song. She will sing it 2 or 3 times, shot from different angles. She will do it once in just her bikini. There will be lots of crossfades like some music videos. It will be artistic.

Molly turns to look behind her 3 times, twice one way and once the other way. She is looking to see
if the background changes behind her. She realizes it isn't and doesn't look anymore.

Title..... Don't Drop The Baby

When I was just a babe of one,
And my sister was thirteen,
She was holding me in her arm as she walked,
When she suddenly got a phone call,

It musta been an important call,
Cause she kinda forgot about me,
She talked and I wiggled and fell on the floor,
She had to cut off her con-ver-sation.

I just wouldn't stop cryin',
I had bumped my head on the floor,
It changed me comp-letely,
When I got older I turned into a whore.

So don't drop the baby,
Or she'll turn out like me,
I've had hundreds of boyfriends
I don't know all their names,
I can't hold a job and I'm late on my rent

Oh don't drop the baby, or she'll turn out like me,
No don't drop the baby or she'll turn out like me.

Molly bows to Sylvia and to the imaginary audience. Sylvie whoops. She puts the phone down and claps.

SYLVIE
Bravo! Bravo! Awsome! Let's put it on youtube!

MOLLY
Thanks. There was no background change, did you see that?

SYLVIE
I don't know what you mean.

MOLLY
Well, whatever. Would you take some pictures of me for my agent
in my bikini? I told her I would send a pic of me in my new bikini.

SYLVIE.
Sure. And you can take some of me in this outfit for my agent.

Sylvie takes some pictures of Molly in different poses. They do some
improv talking. Molly takes some pictures of Sylvie.  They take 2 selfies
of them both together. Molly's phone rings.

MOLLY
Hey..... (she listens)

SYLVIE
..... .going for a walk...... (she points at door)

Molly nods. Sylvie walks out. Molly talks on phone.

MOLLY
I forget the name. I always just buy them because I recognize the color
of the package. ............. It's got kind of a rainbow on it..............

........ hummm..... I dunno...... hm..maybe... (some of this can be improve)
Colors, I think there's blue, black, red and green................. I think it feels
the same with any color.... like why would the color matter?

....... some guys don't like that I carry condoms, but I think
it's good to be prepared.....

yeah......

CUT TO

Sylvie walking outside. She is wearing her hooker outfit. She walks in front of an old house,
and sees an old chair on it's side near the sidewalk. She sets the chair up and sings her song.
It will be shot two or three times from different angles.  She finishes singing and starts walking home.

SONG HERE

CUT TO

Molly still on phone

MOLLY
........They've got these little kind of bumps on them...... yeah.......

CUT TO
Ryan, walking on a sidwalk. He smells his armpits.

RYAN
Say it like you mean it.......
Say it like you mean it......
Say it like you mean it......4 more times.


He continues walking. He comes to a small park that slopes towards the ocean. There is a park bench there. He walks to the bench and stands up on it. He faces the ocean and then faces towards the camera but does not look at the camera The camera is low and he is silouetted against the sky, mountains and ocean. He raises his arms up like he is God, about to give an order to the universe.

RYAN
Change!! Strange sky! Change!!

There is lightning and thunder and the sky changes. Ryan looks back to see it. Colors, rainbows, images appear and leave. The faces of the girls appear and change and leave.

RYAN
(big smile)
Wow! Awsome! I wasn't sure it would work!

He sings his song 3 times from different angles.  He sings looking at an imaginary crowd.  It will be made amazing in editing.

While he sings, ALMA is sitting on a park bench watching him. There are cutaways to her as Ryan sings. Alma is wearing big glasses. She has her hair in a "nerd", "geek" style and is maybe wearing a baseball cap on backwards. She smiles at him as he sings without showing her teeth. When he finishes, she smiles widely and speaks. Now she smiles and shows her teeth and we see that she has only two or three teeth. (special effects used) She claps her hands.

ALMA
Wow! That was fantastic!
(big smile)

RYAN
Thanks. It's for a movie.

ALMA
I know.

CUT TO
Molly on phone still.

MOLLY
......OK, I don't want to keep talking about condoms all day. I'm going to go out for a walk.
Maybe I'll see Sylvie. Maybe I'll sing my soap song. ................ ...........my  soap song......
It's complicated, I'll tell you some other time.......... Bye.

Molly hangs up and walks out.

FADE OUT
FADE IN

Molly walking on sidewalk. She comes to a place similar to where Ryan sang, with the ocean, mountains and sky in the background. She stands on a park bench or table, and faces towards the camera, and then turns towards the ocean. As she turns, the "magic sky" appears and she faces towards the camera and is absolutely delighted. She sings her song 3 times as if singing to a crowd gathered in front of her. She finishes and the sky turns plain again. She starts walking home.

........ Molly sings her song........

FADE OUT
FADE IN

Inside, a bit later. Molly and Sylvie are home sitting at their kitchen table.

MOLLY
And the sky changed for me, I don't know how they did it.

SYLVIE
Maybe it'S the lemon. Maybe it is magic.

CUT TO
Outside.  Ryan is walking, and walks up to the main door on the girls apartment. He rings buzzer.

CUT TO
Inside. Buzzer rings.  Sylvie answers.

SYLVIE
Hello? .......... Ryan.....? oh, comeon in!!

Sylvie buzzes him in and speaks to Molly

SYLVIE
It's Ryan! He's here!

There is a knock at the door. Molly hurries to answer the door. She lets Ryan in. He enters the dining area.

MOLLY
How did you find our place?

RYAN
I homed in on the lemon. It was quite easy actually.

SYLVIE
I was wondering if we would ever see you again.

RYAN
No need to worry about that. We have the magic lemon tie.
Ahh, I'll explain it one day.
(beat) Here's my two other lemons, one for each of you.

He tosses them each a lemon. The girls catch them.

SYLVIE
Thanks.

MOLLY
Yeah thanks.

RYAN
You're welcome. I don't need them anymore, because I got the part!

SYLVIE
Awesome!

MOLLY
Yeah awesome!

RYAN
The song is what did it. They liked my singing.
(beat)
I was wondering if you would both like to sing it it with me?

MOLLY AND SYLVIE TOGETHER
Sure!

They sing Ryan's song. Ryan stands in the middle.  Sometimes, individually, they look at the camera. At the end of the song, Ryan pulls them both towards him. They all look in such a way like maybe they are going to become really good friends.

SONG HERE


SPACE FOR SONG HERE


The song ends.

RYAN
This is really disruptive..... Looking at the camera.

SYLVIE
Well, it's medium disruptive maybe. He did it
in one of his early films.

MOLLY
I never had to take my top off.

SYLVIE
Is that relevant?

RYAN
What happens now?

MOLLY
I think we fade out.

SYLVIE
Yeah we fade out.

FADE TO BLACK. Only voices heard.

MOLLY
I loved the colourful skies.

RYAN
I thought we were faded out.

SYLVIE
We are but they can still hear us.

MOLLY
Will there be a sequel?

SYLVIE
I don't know. Maybe.

MOLLY
If there is I'll take my top off next time.

RYAN
Cool!

SYLVIE
I don't think you'll have to.

MOLLY
I want to!

SYLVIE
Look, it's over already.

MOLLY
I will, really.

END, credits.

Cast, crew, director, Alma, and camera dolly will be shown during credits. And some bloopers! One of the songs will be heard, and some of the "music video" it is from will be seen.

NOTE: It will require great acting. This script is just words on a page. The movie is in my head. You have to trust me.


NOTE: The 3 songs are perfomed twice each. I am planning to put up the 6 song scenes as individual short videos on youtube. Each video will probably include a few lines before and after the actual singing.

This means that each actor has a terrific opportunity to showcase their talents and show off!! And sometimes videos go viral, you never know!

You may get a lot more out of this than just the money!



I am seeking keen and hard working actors.  Actors who recognize that this project may jump start their career. There will be priceless funny bits of this movie that can be added to your demo reel. Actors can apply now. Best applicants will get
details. Formal resumes and pics not needed. Just send a bit
about yourself and selfies or any pics you have. Links to
videos are helpful. Audition dates to be determined.

Actors can apply here with photos: steve@stevecosmic.com

Actress wanted to be "Molly" described below. I had a casting director and we tried to get the talent we wanted but we could not find who we wanted. Our efforts showed that finding Molly was the hardest character to cast.

Because Molly was the hardest to cast, I want to find her first. Molly wears a bikini, but only for part of the time. No nudity.

If you want to be Molly, I am offering $100 for about a 3.5 hour shoot, where you will just read from the script. It will be just like the second video below. Watch the actress, and ask yourself if you can do the same or better.

There could be several such shoots, with pay for the next shoots increasing. 

I will do the same for Sylvie and Ryan, described below, at a later time.

To apply send pics and a bit about yourself to me by email, here.

Pamela Anderson wore bikinis to get
rich and famous. Maybe you can too.
It doesn't mean you have to do it for
your whole acting career.
