The audience is cheering and applauding as the new act starts. 3. Panning shot posters contd 4. FOLLOW TO INT Backstage The dancer goes backstage, the camera follows her to a row of chairs. JAKE is sitting on one of the chairs reading a script. He gets up just on time for the dancer to sit down on his seat. The dancer doesnt seem to notice he is there. 5. INT Backstage The camera pans around to show other acts performing for their roles. We HEAR and SEE some of them rehearsing their lines, a magician doing tricks. SOUND FADE IN: audience in the theatre hall, cheering up the current performer. 6. INT Backstage JAKE is walking up and down, focused on his lines.

The guy just walks through him & towards the group. 15. INT Backstage CUT TO Jake takes a deep breath and exhales slowly. He walks up to the steps. He can hear the crowd cheering. He walks up the steps. The curtains open. 16. INT Stage The house lights are off. Just small side lights are on. Jake stands like he is stage fright. He tries to clear his throat but no sound comes out. The audience is silent. As he is about to speak, the microphone gives feedback. The spotlight comes on. Jake vanishes. An announcer comes on stage. The announcer comes to stage announcing this is the last act, in memory of Jake. Announcer: We are here today to celebrate the talents of Jake Deschain. We hope you enjoyed this tribute to him. Another performer comes to stage and starts performing. SOUND FADE OUT. 17.
