CUT TO:

INT.   NICKELODEONS’ PAINTING STUDIO.  LATE AFTERNOON.

NICKELODEON checked the corners of her stretcher bars, then tipped the large newly assembled frame up slightly to check its sturdiness.  Solid.  Satisfied, she dropped it flat, then started unrolling a large swath of canvas to stretch.

This would be her new painting.  And perhaps of the series — her last.  She stood up, grabbed her staple gun, and resumed stretching her fresh canvas.

Her new painting.  The big one.
Methodologically smoothing the canvas, stretching and stapling along while she continued her theory,

NICKELODEON  “Back in the 1800’s — “1893”, I believe, to be exact.  There was a congressman, a lawyer, an American… who proposed bills to essentially eliminate war by abolishing the Army and the Navy…”

NICKE had, already, finished one side of the gargantuan frame, her new canvas — soon to be her new painting… in her mind, the ultimate one — and, then systemically working, stapling and stretching  around to the other,

NICKELODEON  “he also proposed renaming the United States of America to                        “The United States of Earth”…”

script/ excerpt 2

CUT TO:

INT.  NICKELODEONS’ PAINTING STUDIO.  EVENING.

NICKELODEON leveled one last loaded brush of the red across a mid-horizontal stripe,  then stood back.   Way back.

 

She almost toppled a large gallon of freshly mixed and immaculately handcrafted can of paint.  Her specially mixed green.   High octane.   Her “high octane” secret.  Like her painting.   (Her “motha painting” — as MOSSE would call it.)

Then,  continued her conversation — eyes unwavering,  glued only to the painting —  with her studio mate,  her friend… and, now her official studio assistant.  Systematically cleaning and changing brushes.   She then approached her painting like some kind of elusive quarry.   Like something   new.

Bleary eyed, fatigued and, by now,   on automatic,                                                                            she stepped up and was now on into the  green

CUT TO:

INT.  NIGHTCLUB, “PANDORA’S BOX” (AKA: “THE BOX”).  LATE EVENING.

(to be continued…)

 

NICKELODEON  “Who’s that?”

Her regular group, her “Girl Squad”,  had just downed their last jello-shot (smuggled in by TAMARA) and were onto their third pitcher of stout, when she — she — walked in.

They all rolled their eyes… dramatically.  (MOSSE looked the other way.)

“Stay away from her…”
