I must say, Nicola Stuart's 047 is all kinds of fun. I mean, I literally do not know that I can think of a more endearingly upbeat idea than raptor-riding youths jumping out of a plane (?) to deliver pizza. Like, that's just an amazing idea and the follow-through is even better.
I generally try to avoid taking directly from the image of inspiration, but I feel like that the Dino Pizza crew is too good to ignore. Plus, the autobio element I'm working in here felt pretty apropos.
1 - A Dino Pizza trio flies / dives towards the earth at high speed - not dissimilar to birds of prey swooping down on their, well, prey. The riders hitch close to their raptors to try to keep wind drag at a minimum. Everyone wears looks of determination.
2 - The raptors throw out their wings to slow their descent, touching down outside a house in a dense neighbourhood.
3 - On a finger ringing the doorbell.
SFX (doorbell): ding! dong!
4 - A woman stands at the door, holding pizza boxes and a pack of beer. She looks really appreciative, if a bit tired and worn. The Dino Pizza crew are happy at a job well done.
WOMAN: Thanks so much. You guys are lifesavers.
DELIVERER: Think nothing of it. Just doing our part.
5 - Inside. The woman and her three friends sitting on couches around a TV, eating pizza and drinking beer. They are surrounded by all manner of evidence of a recent move: packed boxes, mismatching chairs, pictures leaning on the wall, etc.
6 - The three friends are eating pizza / drinking beer. The woman looks at the slice she's holding, wearing a quizzical look.
WOMAN: How did pizza and beer become the currency of paying back friends for moving help?
7 - The three friends pause, looking at their own pizza / beer. All are quizzical.
8 - One friend responds, a satisfied look on their face. Everyone also seems pretty pleased with the response.
FRIEND (1): I dunno.
FRIEND (2): But I'm not complaining.
WOMAN: Oh, definitely not.
