Uncle Sam’s Love (Working Title)
By Anthony, Arden, Beau & Barbara
When the sunlight strikes raindrops in the air,
they act as a prism and form a rainbow.
FADE IN LIBRARY INT.
We see [name of student] editing his video project on final cut using
a library computer. Suddenly, a security guard rushes in.
Excuse me; are you [name of student]?
Um… yes I believe I am.
May I ask what the problem
Let’s go, you’re coming with me.
The guard handcuffs the students arm and they quickly leave the room
and exit the library.
CUT TO LIBRARY EXT.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do
or say—oh who really cares anyway?
Hey get off of me, what did I do wrong?
You really have to question it?
QUICK CUT TO ROOM INT.
We see the door to the interrogation room from the inside, quickly
being opened. Both of them storm in.
The guard sits the student on a chair under a bright light and races
back and forth.
So [name of student], were you in Washington D.C.

The guard takes out a laptop and plays the video for the student for
about 30 seconds.
That’s you in that video, now isn’t it?
The guard winks at the student and laughs.
I can explain!
It’s for a class!
Well, I can be reasoned with.
Well, what do you want from me? I will give it

The guard leans over and stares at the student in the eyes, and gives
a really big (maybe even creepy) smile.
Uh, yeah… sure?
Can you make me one with the Eiffel Tower?
