The Restaurant

The Role: Editor

The Brief

I was provided with a script and the footage for a scene in a restaurant. The goal was to use the footage and let the camera tell the story.

The Script

XT. RESTAURANT

Cars pass before the camera. The front door opens and closes as patrons enter the subdued parking lot.

INT. RESTAURANT

WOMAN sits at a table by herself. MAN enters and sits with her.

MAN

Sorry I’m late.

WOMAN

That’s okay.

MAN

So what’s good here?

WOMAN

Listen, we need to talk.

MAN

What is it?

WOMAN

I know you cheated on me.

WAITER approaches the table.

WAITER

Our specials tonight are the

Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with

Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce and

   the seared rack of lamb encrusted

                      in dijon mustard.

MAN

We’re going to need a few minutes.

Waiter leaves the table.

MAN and WOMAN stare at each other blankly.
