Transnational Crime II – the sequel

by: (Associate Director, Research and Development) on

In 2013 I tried my hand at writing a film storyboard. Now here’s the sequel….

Scene One

Close up: Woman on phone. Shaking; seems nervous.

“Help, we need help. Send the ambulance”

Scene Two

An ambulance races down a deserted road, but still has its lights and siren on. It’s night time. Probably stormy.

Inside is a patient. The mood is grim.

The ambulance driver shouts “do we have the right drugs…?”

Scene Three

Ambulance arrives at ferry port. The patient is stable.

The Driver speaks to the Port Authorities: No time to wait in the queue – we’ve done this route before and this is an emergency. We have to get this man back to the UK!

They board the ferry first and secure the doors of the ambulance for the journey.

Scene Four

The ambulance is speeding along again. Now there’s three police cars accompanying them.

The patient must have taken a turn for the worse. The police have their lights and sirens on too and the speed is increasing….

The police cars are trying to get in front of the ambulance. Hold on – they’re not trying to help the ambulance get through the traffic – they’re trying to stop them!

AmbulanceFinal Scene

The ambulance is pulled over by the police.

Despite protestations from the crew and the patient, they are led away in handcuffs. Forensics arrive and secure the scene.

Secret compartments are found behind the ambulance’s interior panels, in cupboards and under the floor contained 193 kilos of cocaine, 74 kilos of heroin, 2 kilos of MDMA crystal and 20,000 ecstasy tablets with a combined likely potential street value of over £38 million.

Release date?

As before, I am not currently contracted to any film studio – so am open to offers.

(email arrives)

“What? What do you mean this one isn’t original either?”

It’s already happened?

Again? Oh, I give up.

For now anyway.

Stay tuned for more typologies…. coming soon to a theatre near you….!
