Test art from Bob Bobson for 'Goldfish'
Time jump. Day.
Inside tank. Fish 2 looking decidedly peaky is between us and glass. Holly’s distorted face pushed up against glass.
‘FISH 2’S ‘ SICK. WILL YOU TAKE ME TO THE VET?
Boy playing computer game…same hideous demon thing as before, slashing open his chest.
IT’S BECAUSE HE’S STUCK IN HERE. GIVE HIM TO ME I’LL FLUSH HIM DOWN THE TOILET, OUT TO THE OCEAN. HE’LL BE HAPPIER THERE.
Him throwing console down in disgust at dying again. Holly, fists clenched pouting
YOU’RE HORRIBLE I HATE YOU…
…AND ‘FISH 2’ IS A GIRL STUPID.
Tom and Jerry houswife shot. We have from Holly’s shoulders up but not as far as mum’s face. Panel needs to be relentless. Lots of space, mum just entering right of panel, Holly waiting arms up. Fill this space with Holly's speech ballons, broken as per / . Mum's voice floats small, lost in the mass.
MUM! / MUM! / ‘FISH 2’S’ SICK AND / MICHAEL SAID HE’S GOING TO
/FLUSH HIM DOWN THE TOILET AND HE’S SICK/ CAN WE TAKE HIM
/TO THE VET?/ THE VETS/ CAN WE TAKE HIM?
MUMMY’S TIRED NOW BABY
PLEASE BE QUIET
Mum shouting , Holly shocked to silence
IT’S ONLY A GOLDFISH!
Close on holly, tears starting
BUT IT’S MY GOLDFISH!
