I’m choreographing an action scene from DG4 today. Last time I broke out the Legos to choreograph a scene, I was going to share, but the scene was built on my desk and you could read my bank statements in the picture. I deleted it.
Sadly, now that school is back in session, most of the Legos have gone back upstairs, leaving me with the left-behinds—a mish-mash bucket of miscellaneous pieces. Because I’m too lazy to go upstairs, I was forced to throw together a makeshift scene. It might help if I introduce the characters.
In the role of Jack Donovan:
I promise he wears neither orange overalls nor a sideways baseball cap in the book. (Actually, I’m praying like hell my subconscious doesn’t latch onto this in any way.)
In the role of Isabella Arceneaux:
So she’s a little cranky. No doubt because, while running for her life, she missed an appointment at the salon and is a little behind on her personal grooming.
And…in the role of the Bad Guy:
Yeah, that would be Patrick Starr. In a gold-trimmed, purple, v-neck sweater. In the actual scene, he’s not carrying a bazooka, by the way. I had a choice between the bazooka or Harry Potter’s wand, and the wand just wasn’t gritty enough.
Isabella is trying to escape through the window of a building at the end of a dead-end alleyway.
The Bad Guy, hiding behind a large van (which is not a Transformer in the book, btw), has her in his laser sights!
Jack, running into the alley, sees the red dot on Isabella’s back, but doesn’t have a shot at Bad Guy. He’s blocked by the non-Transforming van.
Whatever will he do?
I would share more but, as you can see, I’m working very hard today and must get back to it.
