1. Ext. Mid shot of the UNKNOWN SOLDIER, he sits, back against a thick tree. His eyes closed, head looking down at the floor, his palms resting against his temples

It’s the break of dawn and the sun is just rising. A yellow hue shimmers over the panel.

        CAPTION:
        672 Hours since Doctor Parker’s horrific discovery.

        CAPTION UNKNOWN SOLDIER:
For freedom, against terror. These are the causes men and women are given to fight.

2. Ext. Full shot of the UNKNOWN SOLDIER as he gets to his feet. One hand pressed against the tree.

The sun rises higher and the panel shifts into an orange hue.

        CAPTION UNKNOWN SOLDIER:
It’s all just politics though. Greed, hunger for more. These are the true ways of war.

3. Ext. We pull way back. The UNKNOWN SOLDIER stands alone in CENTRAL PARK NEW YORK CITY. The skyline of the city dominates the panel. Buildings burn all around, and smoke pours into the sky.

Military helicopters dot the skies; they are flying around like lost children.

The sun crests the horizon casting the panel into a hellish shade of red.

CAPTION UNKNOWN SOLDIER:
This time we just hunger to survivor. To out live what our greed has unleashed.

CAPTION UNKNOWN SOLDIER:
We fight so that we are not forgotten.

  1. I dug the description of the helicopters over the city. Nice work. There was also some good stuff going on in the captions here too.

    I'm unsure how this intersects with the main narrative but craft-wise this was good stuff.
