Chester comic script

PANEL 1

Beachside, camera facing away from the ocean.

A FIRBOLG and a DWARF relax in beach chairs, sipping pina coladas, with halos above their head. A skinny human man is building a sand castle at their feet.

DWARF: Gotta say, didn't expect to find myself enjoying this sorta afterlife.

FIRBOLG: Yeah, it's a "dead roommate" kinda situation with Sune - you die with a devout of hers, she gets a claim to you because we're "loved ones". And her scripture is pretty explicit about "eternal beach day" being paradise.

PANEL 2

Camera facing opposite direction, displaying ocean vista, and placed between the two seated people, just showing the edge of their chairs and feet; human still in frame, concentrating on shaping a castle turret. There is a subtle commotion happening in the water in the distance. Dialog continues from off-screen people.

DWARF: Speaking of, where'd Chester get to? Last I heard he was going for a swim, right?

FIRBOLG: Yeah, I--

PANEL 3

Close up, sexy shot of Chester bursting from the ocean, chest thrust forward, arms back, with a fish in each hand and one in his mouth. All the fish have halos, too. Water droplets glisten in the air, flung by the force of his emergence.

PANEL 4

Back to PANEL 2 shot. Chester, now tiny in the distance, is waving madly at the group on the shore. Human is putting a little flag on the sand castle's central tower, tongue out in concentration.

CHESTER: [from a distance, tiny text] HEY GUYS HEY LOOK OVER HERE I CAUGHT DINNER HEY LOOK GUYS

DWARF: [still offscreen] Never mind, he's fine.
