EXT. NICK S DREAMS ON THAT NIGHT – OLD CAR LANDFILL + FX
In the middle of somewhere bus stops, Nick exits. Summer heat is on the top. Old car landfill. The sun is so strong that we can as the heat is evaporating from the earth.
NICK has a parked car somewhere here, but there are some kind of team of people stealing this cars, or something, probably. They don’t seem to look completely innocent, we don’t see them openly. More hear them. Like some criminals they are walking around intentionally, 6 of them. We don’t see them together. They are not organized in a group, we can just hear that there are bunch of them. They jell, and talk to each other. In one moment Nick picks the manhole and enters a narrow tube like elevator that completely drastically changes color, and with this elevator he stops on many floors. His face is like watching Germans playing Brecht – full of expressive micro-grimace. He is completely crazy, he would scream, worried, etc. Then he comes back on the surface, getting out of the manhole. What we see next is his impression of walking, his legs and body. As before, we can now hear even more louder irritated yells of these people, like there is danger approaching. They are dressed up in shirts that have shorted, rolled sleeves. Not too much nice shirts. These crooks are also here when he climbs up the manhole, someone is throwing purple bomb that starts to spread like a tide wave of purple energy that everybody runs away from, in panic. The thing is getting faster , as we are following Nick and trying desperately to escape trough his perspective. Then the wave reaches Nick, and it seems that is harmless, music adds to this, and now, from total we can see that this happening is turning into video game digital music that starts beating and follows the rhythm.
