STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (INTERLUDE)
flash movie

We are in a countryside hotel, the morning light filtered roze-red by heavy curtains. The sparse furniture is sought out with some taste: a dresser topped with a high, exquisitely decorated mirror in a style derivative of Art Nouveau; on the floor a lush carpet, the deep, wine- red background colour offset by images of lustfully coiling serpents. A large, bulging double bed in the same style, filling nearly half the small room. The bed-clothes lie in disarray. Our Narrator is on the telephone, pacing frantically. Obviously, We can only hear his voice.

NARRATOR: "I paid her four hundred and forty-five. Four hundred and forty-five."

"No, just for this scene."

"No."

As I told you..."

His voice rises ever higher now: ".. as I told you, I have it on paper. But what's the use? She won't come back, not now..."

All at once, our Narrator seems very tired. He stoops, looks for the bed, sets himself down, his head in his hands. The telephone receiver has slipped from his fingers, and now swings helplessly on its tether, just inches from the floor. Our Narrator sobs once, sighs, slides to the ground. We can hear the other party calling out, but the voice is too muffled to understand.

STUDY FOR A NARRATIVE, 2011, GALLERY PIECE (PREAMBLE)
flash movie

NARRATOR: "Imagine the setting. This is the setting: a high, cool space, well-lit. The walls are a brilliant white, the floor a highly polished hardwood. It's a gallery. There's a small table set to one side, and at the table, we see someone on the phone. We will call this person AUTHOR. We hear just this small fragment..."

AUTHOR: "I'd like to do a longish piece. A narrative. Probably fiction. It's to be about two people in a situation. It's to be a situation piece.

It should start with some sort of mystery. A mystery. Some sort of suspense story. Something happens, something out of the ordinary. Something happens and no-one knows what the outcome might be. Not even the AUTHOR."
