The camera moves through the house seeing everyone talking and having a good time. Stops on Brent and his parents talking in the kitchen. Dad “Ok son, your mother and I have been watching how hard you have worked this semester..” Mom “And you didn't get in any trouble, so we thought you should deserve a reward” Brent “Oh come on you know you don't have to. You already threw me this grad party! I mean what else could I need?” Dad “ Well, you will be going off to college so..” Brent “Not until next year. I'm taking a year off remember??” Dad “ Yes I know” Mom pulls a bag from behind her back all excited. A smile forms on both of there faces. Mom “And what better way to take a year off than..” Brent opens the bag and sees a car key Brent “A new car!? Mom “Well, not new. It's my old truck!” Brent looks at his dad with disgust. Brent “Are you kidding! That old clunker is not a gift its a punishment! I would rather keep riding my bike than be seen in this!. ( Gets interrupted by mom ) Mom You should be grateful! Its better than nothing . Why don't you go tell April? I am sure she would love to hear the news. Brent “Good idea” ( he says sarcastically. He walks away to find her) Brent walks through the crowds of people and finally finds April talking to a girl. They make eyes contact and he runs up and hugs her Brent “Hey, babe I have some news! April “ So do I!” Brent “I just got a car!” April “I just got accepted into Brown! Wait you got a car that's awesome! Brent “it's not awesome it's my dads Cruddy truck. I don't want to be caught dead in that thing. Brent “Oh my god You got into brown oh my god babe that's incredible ( gives her a hug ) that's your dream school! April I know! I'm so excited to start this fall! But I have so much to do. Brent “Wait. this fall? I thought that we were taking a year off together? April I know I`m sorry. But it's my dream School! Its a once and a lifetime opportunity. You understand right? Brent What about our plan? Spending a year together.. April “We can spend the summer together! And ill come home and visit all the time.” Brent Ya I guess Brent is clearly sad. April feels horrible and has a great plan to make him happy. April “ Brent, I have a great idea that will make it up to you. But I have to go plan it out. I'll call you tonight. April runs out the door Brent “Um ok? Bye! Fade to black Int. Brents room- night Brent is in his room listening to music in his bed with headphones on. His phone rings and he stops the music. Brent (on the phone) “Hey this is brent” April (on the phone) “Brent!

Int. aerial shot of brents driveway. 8 am Cut to a scene of April in her mom's car driving to brents house looking at a list. April “ blankets?” April “Check” April “Tent?” April “Check” April “Camera?” April “Check” The camera turns to the ground view of OSS Brent looking at Aprils car pull in and her unloading everything. April “Packed your bag? Brent “ Yes. what is this all for. April Did you want to spend the year together? Well, we can spend at least the summer together. We are driving all over and doing sorts of fun things before I go to school. You drive and I say where to go. Brent You still haven't told me where we are going. April Ya, its surprise trip. You drive. I'll tell you the way April looks at brent with a smile Brent Ok so where to? April Help me load up( hands him a bag) Brent “ok” The camera goes into an extreme wide shot of a car pulling out of the driveway and driving down the road. Music plays and the camera switches to a drone shot of car driving. Shots of brent and April are being shown of them laughing and talking and playing in the car. At first, brent is not having fun and you can see that. But April makes him happy by showing him a good time. Scenes go buy of brent and April stopping at places and having fun. Places include the beach, the snow, a picnic, star gazing, nature walking, eating at restaurants, getting snowcones, going to a concert, a campfire guitar session, and fireworks. Ext. cut to them driving. Noon. a lot of car noise. Brent “Where does this road even go?” April “ I'm not sure this map is.. Kind of confusing” The car is making banging noise and brent has to pull over Brent “ damn it!’ Brent opens the hood and sees Smoak. He is getting mad and tries to mess around with it Brent “ great. The engine is overheated. That's Just great.” April “It's ok! We will call a tow its not a problem.” Brent “ IT IS A PROBLEM! You drag me to the middle of nowhere! You ruined our plan. And now the stupid hunk of a junk car is smoking! This trip sucks. This summer sucks. And this whole situation sucks. April “ You think this is easy on me? You're getting mad at me for going to my dream school! I'm trying to make you happy and you're just being mad! I worked hard on this and you're just being pissed off! If you don't want to be on this trip than fine. We can leave. April walks off a bit and wiped tears Brent I didn't mean that. I'm sorry. I'm just mad. The engine will be good to go in an hour or 2. Want to listen to some music while we wait? April “Ya whatever” ( in a mad tone walks past him) Int, right before dawn. April is sleeping and the car is shaking a lot. You hear the car park. Brent. “Babe.. babe wake up” April “What? Aw, what time is it? where are we? Brent “Come on” April staggers out of the car to see 2 chairs set out for her and brent overlooking the sunrise. April “ wait what is this? I didn't plan this..” Brent “I know. I did. They both sit down and look out into the distance Brent “I did this because. I'm sorry I overreacted about you leaving. To be honest I'm so happy for you I just don't know what I`m going to do while you are gone. I just wanted you to be happy and if going to this school makes you happy than yo have my full support April “Wow, I had no idea I meant that much to you. Thank you. “ Brent grabs April's hand and lays his head on hers. Brent “I love you. you goofball’ A short pause April “I love you more” They look at each other for a moment April “ So? Where to next? Fade to black Credits roll with pictures of them at all the spots they went to

  3. TRhanks. That’s just what I needed
  4. Look sorry I didn’t answer earlier but I know my stuff. I’ve done many classing in school for film and we are using gh5. I want a camera so I can shoot my own stuff with out school restrictions.
  5. Omg thank you for a straight forward answer. About time. Why the A7III and not one of the Other a7 models like a or r. Why not black magic pocket and why not the gh5?
  6. Any thoughts on bmpcc4k? It’s my main choice for my A cam and want final thoughts before I go all in. Like a better option or something else that would be better. Cause it seems like a clear choice. I will be doing docs, nature shots, short films, comedy’s, and things like that so I need something hat preforms in low light but does not have to be a total low light beast.
  7. Ok so I heard what you all are saying. The bmpcc4k is an AMAZING camera. But I should not start with it for a first camera. I should get something cheap and get a good lenses to learn on. Then when I’m ready upgrade and already have a lense. What camera should I buy that’s cheap? And what’s a good lense. Naive preferably
  8. Ya that’s a good point. It would be smart to get a camera I can learn with before getting bm 4K.
  9. Ya that’s also true. The bmpcc4k could be something I get in the future as an A-cam. I could learn on something cheap to pull focus and upgrade later
  10. Are uyou saying bmpcc4k is a bad camera? what would you recomend
  11. ok your right. bmpcc4k is a great camera. it might be my final choice. the low light is good, it comes with resolve, the sensor is good and looks great with a meta bones, it has flat profiles, and lcd screen looks great. only down sides are battery, no view finder, no stills, in body stabilization is not as good. all I need to do is buy "a" lenses, metacones, tripod, mic, and a cage witch could price me at about 2,000. thanks for the help
  12. Well g95 is new to the game that brings great image quality. But the black magic pickiest cinima 4k is also tempting. May be a dumb question what is a speed booster and what is wrong with he bmpcc4k
