United States, California,
JAMES: Headstrong and impulsive, James a born leader –although he doesn’t know it. He is brimming with self-confidence. The kind of serf-confidence that often gets one in trouble! A genuinely happy-go-lucky kind of kid with a bit of skeptical side, James tends to act first, then think about it later – much to chagrin of his parents. Fortunately he has his best friend, Isaac, to keep him from getting in over his head!
PART OF THE SCRIPT FOR ROUGH VOICE OVER DEMO:
James and Isaac ride their skateboards down the street,
showing off and trying to outdo each other. James skates in
front of Isaac, cutting him off, as James looks back to laugh,
his board takes him right to the storm drain, the front of the
board jamming itself right into the sewer, causing the
momentum to throw James up and over the curb and onto the
grass. Isaac skates up and LAUGHS. James sits up, and Isaac
sits down next to him. The boys take out water bottles, James’
bottle has a distinctive red label and his name written on it.
That was awesome!
Planned the whole thing! I do my
James takes a drink from his water bottle, he finishes it, and
then throws the bright red labelled bottle down the sewer.
Hey, what are you doing? Did you
just drop your plastic bottle into the
Yeah, what’s the big deal?
It’s a big deal because these drains
go all the way to the ocean, just like
the sign says.
Isaac points to a sign painted onto the sidewalk that says “NO
DUMPING, THIS DRAINS TO OCEAN, JAMES”
What do you think happens when
our trash ends up in the ocean?
The plants and animals get really
sick, that’s what! Look at all the
trash that’s already there! Plastic
bags, cigarette butts, soda can
holders, and now your water bottle!
There’s even an old shoe down there!
All that trash will go straight to the
Are you sure that stuff goes all the
way to the ocean?
Just then, bird droppings fall from the sky and splat right
between James and Isaac. (They lean away escaping the
splatter) The boys look up, annoyed. A crane flies into the
scene and lands next to them.
There, now we’re even.
Which one of you put trash in the
storm drain? It goes all the way to
the ocean, ya know! And I live there!
(to James) See? I told you! (turns to
the crane) My name is Isaac and this
is my friend James. He’s the one
who threw his bottle in to the storm
(protesting) What?! Me? But
I...wait...I’m talking to bird!
Isaac’s right about the storm drains,
James. When your trash ends up in
the ocean, all kinds of marine life do
get sick, and their homes become
polluted. Sometimes they even get
stuck in your garbage. I’ll show you!
