2/1 – Small panel. Far or medium shot. Lana takes a seat. [HERO] is totally focused on her.
RIGHT. HOW CAN I HELP YOU, MS. RIO?
OH, THIS IS SO COMPLICATED, I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY I’M HERE… BUT I’M SO DESPERATE…
HER VOICE QUIVERS SLIGHTLY. MY LEGS DON’T DO MUCH BETTER
2/2 – Small panel. Zoom in. Lana’s body language starts to weaken.
OH DEAR, PLEASE LET ME EXPLAIN. DO YOU KNOW [NAME]?
2/3 – Large panel, collage type. Left side of the image is [HERO]’s face, as it melts into a collage. The collage: Triangular composition, as we see the following elements:
- A bunch of recognizeable futuristic appliances with RIOTECH on them.
- Magazine cover. Rio raising his hands, big smile on his face. People cheering in FG, city silhouette in BG. “Rio is the One!” copy on the cover.
- Big face of Rio, slightly sinister facial expression.
[NAME]. THE NAME IS A PULSE-HAMMER TO MY BRAIN. TROUBLE, ALRIGHT.
RIO WAS MOST POWERFUL MAN IN [CITY]. HE WAS A LOW-LEVEL TECHPIN WHO BUILT HIS FORTUNE BY STOCKPILING ILLEGAL SCIENTIFIC ASSETS. AFTER WINNING THE MEME-WARS OF [DATE], HE TOOK CONTROL OF ALL THE TECH IN THE CITY.
“IF YOU OWN SOMETHING, IT’S PROBABLY A [NAME] SOMETHING!” WAS THE MARKETING LINE.
2/4 – Small panel. Lana furrows her brow as she looks off to the side.
LANA EXPLAINS HOW SHE WAS A WAITRESS AT A COFFEE SHOP WHEN SHE’D FIRST MET RIO. HE TOOK HER IN, TREATED HER LIKE A QUEEN, TOO.
