[scene] A kitchen, close-up on a clock on the wall. it's about twenty to eight in the morning. "Black Mirror" by Arcade Fire is playing.
PIC1: dolly back from clock to slightly wider shot of a room – a kitchen that's been turned into a mess of notes, lines drawn in string, marker pen on old 70s wallpaper, a Human League poster, equations, question marks, memorabilia from the 50s, a poster for international geophysical year.
DD: TODAY I CHANGE MY NAME
PIC2: dolly back further to see a kitchen table with someone – a slight man with unkempt dark hair slumped forward on it – seemingly asleep.
DD: ME – AND A THOUSAND AND TWENTY-THREE OTHERS, STOP BEING WHO WE WERE, AND BECOME WHO WE'RE GOING TO BE.
PIC3: dolly back further through the kitchen window to a typical suburban street.
PIC 4: dolly-back and raise camera to a wide shot of a surburban estate on the edge of a large, dense, dark, decadent and decaying city
DD: TODAY I CHANGE MY NAME, AND WE START TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
