In for the Money

INT./EXT. FORTRESS MAMEA – VARIOUS

ON A MACBOOK SCREEN where the following exchanges are by email (we’ll leave it to the Director to worry about how the hell to do it).

TITLE: “One week after a job well done”

WRITER

Well that was fun! When do we find out if it made any money?

EXECUTIVE

That was fun, wasn’t it? Still working through things. Get back to you in a few days.

TITLE: “Two weeks after a job well done”

WRITER

(email)

Hey, just wondering how those negotiations are going.

EXECUTIVE

We’re just querying a couple of things with the distributor. Get back to you later in the week.

TITLE: “Four weeks after a job well done”

WRITER

(email)

Hard to believe it’s been four weeks already! Any news on your negotiations?

EXECUTIVE

(email)

I know! A month. Wow. We’re just finalising settlement – looks like we’ve got [REDACTED] dollars to work with.

WRITER

(email)

That’s great! What’s my share?

No response.

WRITER

(email)

Hello?

No response.

WRITER

(email)

Hello?

THE END.

Note: Closure in drama is, in my humble opinion, overrated ;)
