INT. BOOTH – TWILIGHT
HOFF the engineer adjusts the monitors and microphones with the movie watchers in mind.
Some of the best and, arguably, worst commentaries out there are ones filled with stories, conversations and, most important of all, nonsensical debauchery.
TERRI enters the booth.
Having been in a few commentaries herself, Terri Doty tends to remember the ones that in no way followed what was happening on screen the best.
Terri pretends to go over notes on her phone. In reality, she’s scrolling through Twitter—blocking the occasional troll.
(overdramatic flashback SFX)
“It’s amazing what comes to light when you’re just sitting in a booth and watching something with someone that you may or may not know at all.”
So that got Terri thinking…
(finishing NARRATOR’s line)
“What about the flicks we know and love? The ones that helped define us? Why not use a movie that I adore or the guest treasures as the starting point?”
What movie you ask?
GUEST enters booth. They quickly fill the empty chair next to Terri and place their headphones on.
It doesn’t matter.
Hoff shuts the booth door. Walking to his digital workstation, he does the final prep in Pro Tools.
In fact, it matters so little that any mention of the title, characters or actors are edit out in post.
(cues up the movie)
Terri and Guest smile at one another.
(to the listener)
Ready when you are.
