Raster black and white variant for color fills in e.g. paint, photoshop–I actually find this much more interesting to look at, which suggests that perhaps coloring that doesn't "steal the show" from the lines could be more interesting:

DRAMATIS PERSONAE:

POTENTIALLY MALEVOLENT OR BENEVOLENT CYBER CLOUD BOSS THING, a.k.a "CYBER BOSS," an ageless, faceless, voiceless, world-roaming cloud which transmits instructions to the smart phones of any willing or unwilling recipient.

CYBER BOB, 40 (or any age), white (or any ethnicity), or CYBER BARBARA, a mild, goofy, fairly daft pawn of a soul, who follows orders which Cyber Boss transmits to his/her smart phone.

FINAL DRAFT. Second draft initially published to: http://pasted.co/66993b1e

====

FADE IN:

EXT. PARK--DAY

Cyber Bob strolls through the park. He admires a CUTE DOG and PRETTY LADY, 37 and white, who cross his path. She leads the dog on a leash. He smiles at them.

BOB

Hi hello.

DOG

YIP YUP!

LADY

Hiii.

They all stop at the sound of MANY DOGS throughout the park who bark in an alarmed frenzy. The cute little dog joins the bark frenzy, as he looks up to the sky.

Cyber Boss descends over the park into a white puffy ball of a cloud, high in the air and a good distance from Bob.

Cyber Boss stays there mostly motionless. The dogs go silent.

BOB

Oh hey it's my Potentially Malevolent or Benevolent Cyber Cloud Boss Thing a.k.a. Cyber Boss!

The Lady is fearful, confused and befuddled.

LADY

Your hmm hey hwuh? Bwuh?

BOB

Watch.

He holds up his phone toward the cloud. Stereotype sci-fi electic gizmo or radio sounds emit from the cloud, and a stream of blue wavy "radio" lines and small sterotype thunder bolt symbols emanate from it and enter his phone.

LADY

Ehm! Whih?!

CYBER BOB

New instructions! Let's see them!

He holds up his phone and unlocks it, and waves the Lady to come and look at the screen with him. She does so. His phone displays words in a stereotype 50's sci-fi font, which the phone reads aloud in synthetic or "robot" speech:

CYBER BOSS

"EXAMINE potential takeover of traffic lights by irritable midget Chihuahuas. Use new shrinker-teleporter app."

CYBER BOB

Would you like to join me in following these instructions? Your cute little doggy might find some new friends!

He smiles at the dog, then at her. She shakes her head and speaks with a fearful stutter.

LADY

Hm-n-hweh huh. Ne, eh, I'm sorry, no, thank you.

She scuttles off in a hurry, her dog in tow.

BOB

Suit yer suture!

He smiles up at the cloud, which vanishes into thin air.

BOB

Otay!

EXT. SUBURBAN TRAFFIC INTERSECTION--DAY

Bob holds his phone up and manipulates the user interface. His phone displays an app icon which reads:

"SHRINKER-TELEPORTER."

He opens the app. Boss' instructions display and read themselves aloud:

BOSS

Aim your phone camera at a location you wish to shrink and teleport into. Tap on the precise area you want to teleport into.

The app opens a camera view. Bub points it at a red traffic light, and taps on the light. FWOOSH! He turns into abstract blue energy, which races and goes inside the traffic light as the light turns green.

INT. TRAFFIC LIGHT HORIZONTAL BEAM--DAY

This is a large sewer-sized horizontal pipe with a flat floor raised up above the bottom of the pipe, enough to provide ample floor space. It is littered with little doggy beds, doggy food, and a water spout that arcs over and falls into a drain grill.

There are SEVEN CHIHUAHUAS, age 5.

Six of the chihuahuas utter loud "YIP!" barks in turn from first to last and then first again, endlessly. The seventh dog steps off a lit green floor panel, and stands beside two unlit red and orange floor panels beside it. He stares at a large red LED clock on the wall, which counts down seconds from 3:30.

Bob materializes beside the dog who watches the clock. All the dogs stop, silent, and stare at him. The dog who watches the clock speaks.

DOG

YIP YUP!

Bob's phone buzzes, and he raises it to see that an app has opened which reads:

"DOG TRANSLATOR"

It translates the Dog's language into English, which it displays as words and also reads aloud.

DOG

Hey hey!

Bob shouts at the phone.

BOB

Hey! Why are you here?

The phone translates his speech to Dog, on-screen and read-aloud. His screen reads: "YIP YAP! YAP YIP YIP!"

DOG

Why are you here? Eh, it doesn't matter. We've always been here. And you don't have to shout at the phone. I can hear you fine. People always seem to think they should shout when talking to dogs. It's so annoying.

BOB

What?!

DOG

What what?

BOB

You've always been here?!

DOG

Yep. Well, I mean, not me. Just dogs. These guys don't know what to do with themselves when it's my turn at traffic watch. They drive me crazy.

The other dogs bark in turns and run after one another.

DOG

HEY! Can't you see I'm talking here?

BOB

But, but, so, you haven't invaded or anything?

The six dogs go silent. All the dogs stand and give him a blank stare. There's an awkward pause.

BOB

Well, okay, sorry--I guess if you've always been here then, no. Uh. Okay. Wait. I have another question. Couldn't you just sync those lights with that clock so that it controls them? Then you wouldn't all have to be here.

The dogs still stare blankly at him.

BOB

Uh, okay.

He fidgets nervously, then "breaks the proscenium" and looks at us (or the camera).

BOB

So, annoying dogs control traffic lights! No wonder traffic is so annoying!

He emits an utterly nerdy, self-indulgent laugh.

DOG

Oh boy. Here we go.

Bob stares us down in awe.

BOB

WWWOOOOOOOOWWW!
