Book Trailer for Living in Twilight

I wrote this script when I imagined I would have the patience to see Living in Twilight published. The book didn't get published, but the trailer is still awesome. 

SCENE: LIVING ROOM, DAY

Chris and Quenby are drinking beer. Quenby is furiously scribbling on a cumbersome and large piece of paper. 

CHRIS
So what was cinematic about Dad dying?

QUENBY
[Pause]
Talking about his death being cinematic is pretty cinematic. [Laughs]

Cut to: DRUNK SHUFFLER WITH BOX OF BERRIES AND BROWN BAG OF BEER.

VO: CHRIS
There was the drunk guy trying to sell you blackberries while Dad was croaking. 

QUENBY
Ha! Yeah, that was surreal. What about...

CUT TO SHAMAN-CHARLES DANCING SHAGGY JIG WHILE SMACKING DOORS

VO: QUENBY
...the Shaman marking the doors of his university with pee? 

CHRIS
Ha! That's a good one. He was a great Shaman. 

VO: QUENBY
Dad hallucinating? When his ghost cat showed up? He couldn't figure out that it wasn't really there.

CUT TO GHOST CAT RISING OUT OF THE WRINKLES IN DAD'S SHEETS, ALONG WITH ALL MANNER OF PAINTINGS GROWING OUT OF THE WALLS AND CEILING AND FLOOR.

VO: CHRIS
We can shoot it as if a painting is evolving in front of him. 
 
QUENBY
It kind of was. Everything was so strange. 

CHRIS
Maybe it would be about how magical it was to grow up in a world of art. 

QUENBY
And how he died with art, too? That we were living through this tragic moment with joy because of his love of art?

DAD
A good example is you two nuts writing about my death as though it's a movie trailer. 

CHRIS
We learned to see the world through you, Dad. Everything was pretty weird with you in it. 

QUENBY
Yeah, DAD. Pipe down. You're dead.

BEAT. 

CHRIS
Although it's great to see you.
