So my friend wants to start a YouTube cartoon and he asked me to write the first episode script.
Tell me what you think, this is my first script so go easy on me :3
It's 2559 words and 13 pages long btw.
Itís a Small, Ovular world.
*Cut into Zian and Axel at Zians house*
Zian: So what time do we need to get there?
Axel: I think it was 7, weíre leaving early though because itís a huge event so we donít wanna get caught in traffic or anything.
Zian: Yeah good idea, have you got a suit?
Axel: Nah Iíve never needed one.
Zian: *phew* I didnít have one either, well that makes this situation less awkward, we should probably buy one, weíd look out of place going there without a suit
Axel: Yep, letís go
*Cut to them at a shop*
Zian: I donít remember walking here.
-3 second silence- *insert cricket noise/tumbleweed*
Axel: And where did that cricket/tumbleweed come from
Zian: I donít know, but it doesnít matter, we need to get our suits, we have to leave in 4 hours, I donít want to be late.
*Zian picks up suit goes and tryís it on in changing rooms (off shot) and comes out wearing it*
Axel (Wearing exactly the same thing): Yeah Iíll probably get that one too, I hate going over the top with fancy colours and sh*t, plus I canít exactly afford anything else.
Zian: Meh, it looks better with my hair, at least I actually DO something with it
Axel: Iíve told you a million times I donít give a sh*t about what people think about my hair.
Zian: Alright calm down, itís not my fault your hairdressers sh*t
Axel: Hey my hairdresserís fine, I just choose for my hair to be like this
Zian: Whatever, whilst weíre out I need to buy some hair wax.
Axel: Oh my god you have loads in your hair already, and you have like a cupboard full of it at your house, do you eat it or something?
Zian: Heh- yeah, obviously
*Cutaway to Zian with a pot of wax and spoon, about to eat a spoonful when Axel knocks, causing Zian to drop the spoon*
Axel: I wouldnít be surprised
*End of Act One*
Jack: I donít think I can take seeing my aunt in this way
Chip: Yeah, yeah, I hope the chairs are comfy
Jack: You hope the ch- what the hell, do you even care about my-
Chip: Yeah I miss your uncle already
Jack: f*ck you, get to the funeral yourself
Chip: I donít even want to go, you just dragged me along
Jack: Donít come then asshole
Chip: Ok, seeya
*Jack and Chip walk in separate directions*
-Cut to Chip playing Videogames, with a blank expression (5-10sec)
-Cut to Jack sitting alone at home
Jack: I was too harsh on Chip, I should call him and apologise
-Cut back to Chip playing videogames again
Chip: I hope Jack dies, thatís a funeral Iíd go to
-Cut to Jack again
Jack: I should call him later on, heís probably pissed at me now, OH WHAT HAVE I DONE, Argh
-Cut back to Chip, now eating food
Chip: Hmm, I have nothing to do tonight now.
*Picks up phone and dials a number*
-Cut to Jack lying in bed really sad
*Phone ringing noise in Jacks scene*
*Jack picks up Phone*
Jack: Uhh- Chip?
Chip: Yeah I havenít got anything to do tonight so Iíll go to the funeral with you
Jack: Aw man Iím so glad you arenít pissed at me anymore, I was worried that I-
*Cut to Chip playing videogames again nodding and saying ďuh huhĒ as jack talks on phone*
Jack: -and we wouldnít talk ever again and I was really regretful for getting angry and-
Chip: Oh sorry I have to go to the shop, Iíll come to yours at 6, bye.
Jack: What a coincidence, me too. Which shop are you going too, I c-
*Chip hangs up*
Jack: Damn this phones connection!
*End of Act Two*
*Cut to Zian and Axel on the phone*
Zian: -and oh my god the look on his face! Ahahahah
Axel: I know, that guy was just like ďfine see ya laterĒ
Zian: Yeah! Oh wow, I wonder what started the argument was about
Axel: I donít know, probably a trading card or something
Zian: Haha yeah, listen Iím gonna get ready then come to yours in about 10 minutes
Axel: But its 4:55, we donít have to go until 6:30
Zian: But- I- fine, but donít expect me to turn up early, anyway I have to go, thereís someone knocking at my door, probably a Jehovahís Witness
Axel: Alright donít be too harsh on them
*Zian walks to the door and opens it*
Zian: No I donít want to learn about the church of J-
Jack: Um hi, umm where abouts is the nearest Egg-Mart
Zian: Pfff bahahahah- Umm *ahem* I mean, Uhh I think thereís one just down the road.
Jack: What was so funny?
Zian: Umm it was- uhh
Zian: Ok ok, I saw you and your friend arguing earlier and I found it hilarious, so you turning up at my house was just the icing on the cake, small world eh?
Jack: Yeah it might have been funny to you but if you were in my shoes, it isnít so funny, all my life Iíve been pushed around, ignored, spoken over, and Iím sick and ti-
Zian: Yeah so the Egg-Mart is just down the road, nice meeting you, Iím Zian by the way.
Jack: Ugh. Yeah Iím Jack, great to meet you too. Before I go can I ask you one last thing?
Zian: *sigh* what is it?
Jack: Well basically, I uhh- my aunt died and I didnít- there was ah- no one told me where it was or what time, so I kind of donít know where to goÖ or when.
Zian: Heh, itís funny Iím going to a funeral too, say it isnít for your Twice Removed Step-Great Auntie Smith is it?
Jack: No, just my Aunt Sm- wait, are you being f*cking serious, are you seriously going to the same funeral as me, this is the luckiest Iíve been all week, now you can tell me how to get there and when and you can meet my friend Chip and in fact we should all go together
Zian: Woah whoa, Jesus, slow down. Yeah itís a small world huh, sure you can come with us let me just call my friend first and let him know the plans, come in if you want.
*Zian dials Axelís number*
Zian: Axel oh my god, youíll never guess who turned up and is somehow related to me and is coming to the funeral with us-
Zian: Y- what? No! What? Itís that kid from town, that was arguing with his friend, turns out they were arguing about a funeral because heís a loser and his friend didnít want to go or something, long story short my Twice Removed Step Great Aunt smith is just his Regular Aunt Smith, but uh he didnít get invited so he and his friend are coming with us.
Axel: Hahahahaha no way, oh my god unlucky that heís related to you, whatís he like? Whatís he doing now?
Zian: He seems alright, and heís just-
*Looks at Jack*
Zian: Umm one second Axel
*Puts phone down*
Zian: Jack you know you can sit down if you want, youíve been standing in the same position for like 20 minutes
Jack: Oh right, itís just I donít usually get invited in much- ever
*Zian picks up phone*
Zian: Sorry, he was just standing there
Axel: What the hell itís been like 20 minutes
Zian: I know, anyway come over so you two can meet each other-

Zian: Oh hey you must be Chip
Chip: Hey nice to meet you, sorry you turned out to be related to Jack
Jack: f*ck off Chip
Zian: Calm down guys, you donít need to argue again
Zian: Yeah my friend and I kinda saw you two arguing, and it was hilarious
Chip: Yeah well I tried telling him I didnít want to go to the funeral and he wouldnít listen so I walked off

*Chip and Zian run into the room*
Zian: IS that a diary?

Zian: What the actual f*ck
Axel: Uhhhh that was creepy, letís skip to the middle page
Axel: Dear Diary, today my uncle Calvin died, I was very sad but he left me a note in his will with £250 in it, the note said ďDear Jake, hereís £250, now never tell anyone about our games, Love, CalvinĒ I guess Calvin didnít want anyone to know how fun his games were
