The Making Of

Script by Lorenz Lammens

PAGE 9

Panel 1
Close up of the girl’s face, with big, sad puppy eyes.

YOUNG GIRL:
Why did you leave me?

Panel 2
He puts his fingers through the fence, reaching for her and looks at her saddened face (close up of their faces).

TIME TRAVELLER:
Daddy never left you, pumpkin.

TIME TRAVELLER:
I am always looking out for you. Daddy just wants you to know he loves you. Everything I have done was for you. To give you the best life possible.

Panel 3
Close up of their touching straddled hands - this is all we see in this panel.

YOUNG GIRL:
Then why don't you come back?

TIME TRAVELLER:
Because that is the one thing I can't do.

Panel 4
He rests his forehead on her forehead through the fence, their hands are still touching.

TIME TRAVELLER:
I love you, honey. I always have. I always will.

Panel 5
Close up of the two faces, their noses practically touching through the wire, the man looking pleading at the daughter - her hand is still pushing through the fence, he is retracting his.

TIME TRAVELLER:
I must go.

Panel 6
He walks away, head bowed down in regret, body in a James Dean type of slouch, while the girl pushes herself against the fence, watching him go. In this panel we see Frank’s full body, slightly angled to the right of the viewer, and the girl behind him, grabbing the fence with both hands, pulling at the fence as if wanting to rip it apart, her face alarmed, pleading, as she belts from the depth of her lungs:

YOUNG GIRL (exclamation):
Daddy! Please don't go! Daddy? Please…

Panel 7
Extreme close up of Frank’s face, we cannot see the contours of his head, tear flows from the right eye of the man. His face is angled to the right of the viewer.

The Making Of

Script by Lorenz Lammens

Panel 1
He falls through a tree. The branches break under his weight slowing down his deadly descent. (image to right shows the suggested body posture with Future trying to grab hold of the branches).

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
I shouldn't worry. I know the time and place of my death.

Panel 2
The man hits the ground hard.

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
Doesn't stop this from hurting though…

Panel 3
We see the Time Traveller from far behind, standing on a hill, his silhouette outlined by the rising sun. This panel and panel 1 on page 14 are tied together, as this is a panel of hope, page 14 panel 1 is its mirror image. A panel of desolation.

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
I know what I must do. Go to the place where I will die. That's where he who destroys all futures is.

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
I am so afraid….

Panel 4

CAPTION:
One hour later

The man looks out at a school yard where children are playing. On the right hand side picture 1 shows the perspective of him looking at the gate, picture 2 shows the scene behind the gate and picture 3 shows him watching with an insecure, James Dean type slouch, both anticipating and dreading contact.

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
One last goodbye before I go.

Panel 5
A young girl notices him and runs towards him. He stoops down, waiting for her to approach. The girl looks like a 6 yr old version of the girl in picture 2 (India Eisley) on the right hand side.

YOUNG GIRL (exclamation):
DADDY!
Daddy, you came back!

Panel 6
They are separated by a meshed fence. He kneels down and looks at her. We see both of them side on, a close up of their faces pressed close to each other. The girl looks up at him in wonder, questioning if there is something wrong with what she is seeing. This man looks different, older, than the father she once knew. Her face has both a sad longing and a fear.

TIME TRAVELLER:
Oh, sweetheart.

YOUNG GIRL:
You look different. Older.

The Making Of

Script by Lorenz Lammens

PAGE 7

Panel 1
The man falls to the ground, the two security officers behind him look in horror at him from the window (see example to the right of falling man with a window where the cops could be looking from behind him).

The Time Traveller’s right hand is glowing as he summons a new technology.

OFFICER 2 (exclamation):
You fool!

OFFICER 1:
Christ! He’s a dead man!

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!!

Panel 2
A glowing harness builds around the man as he falls towards the ground (it is like a very thin and lightweight exoskeleton that is mounted on the back, that creates an electromagnetic field that flares up in the night and suspends gravity. Booster rockets at the feet and small steering rockets at either wrist allow the passenger to fly.

Panel 3
He escapes death narrowly as the glowing anti-gravity glider lifts him back up, inches before he would have splattered across the pavement.

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
Ungh. That was… Too close!

Panel 4
The man floats above the city of Austin, supported by the glowing futuristic anti-gravity glider.

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
Never seen the city from this angle before. It's beautiful.

Panel 5
The anti-gravity suit disappears (Future is actually not as high as in the panel on the right, remember, he will fall in a tree and survive. Still, if we could have the city in the background it would give a sense of height).

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
Glider’s gone!
The future timeline where my suit came from just collapsed!

Panel 6
The man falls as he stretches out his glowing hand in panic. (This panel could just be a close up of his hand and face with a sense of depth behind him - at this point he is floating above a park with trees at a height that he could survive. The tree branches will take away a lot of his speed before final impact and the suit will protect him against the worst of the brunt.)

TIME TRAVELLER (thought):
Entire worlds are disappearing.
I can't summon a thing.
