GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MOM: AN EDUCATIONAL FILM

- Fade in to reveal a the title of our short, ‘GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MOM.’

- Cross fade through different shots of moms holding and caring for their children.

NARRATOR: Mothers… It’s been said that they know best. But what do we know about them? Who were they before they were ‘Mom?’ To answer that question, we’ll have to go back before even you were born.

SALLY: Who me?

NARRATOR: That’s right, Sally. It wasn’t that long ago that your mom was your age.

SALLY: My Age?

NARRATOR: That’s right. But back then your mom wasn’t, well, your mom yet.

SALLY: Then, who was she?

NARRATOR: Well, she was just like you.

- SALLY looks doubtful.

NARRATOR: Here, let me show you.

- SALLY sits down and watches attentively.

NARRATOR (Cont.): You see, in her youth, your mom focused on things like friends…

- MOM (14) walks with her friends - laughing and talking.

NARRATOR (Cont.): Boys…

- She and her friends giggle as a few guys walk by.

NARRATOR (Cont.): …And school.

- She sits in a library and reads a book, her large glasses prominent.

NARRATOR (Cont.): Remind you of anyone?

- SALLY gasps, takes off her own simmilar large glasses and hides them behind her back.

NARRATOR (Cont.): Don’t believe me, huh?

- SALLY shakes her head, petulant.

NARRATOR (Cont.): Well gee, you have hopes don’t ya?

SALLY: Yeah…

NARRATOR: …And dreams?

SALLY: Uh Huh (yes)

NARRATOR: Well so did your mom! (aside) Until you came along.

SALLY: (concerned) Wait. What?

NARRATOR: Whoa there Sally, that’s jumping a little too far ahead. Your mom had a lot of growing up to do before you arrived…

- MOM (18) sits in a college dorm room. A YOUNG MAN knocks on the door. The screen freezes just as the YOUNG MAN smiles.

SALLY: Hey, wait a minute; that’s not my dad!

NARRATOR: No shit! The truth is…

- SALLY leans forward.

NARRATOR (Cont.): …Before she met your dad, your mom dated other people.

SALLY: Other people?

NARRATOR: She sure did.

SALLY: How many?

NARRATOR: Well, let’s see. There was Brian…

-A JOCK catches a football and poses for the camera.

BRIAN: Sup.

NARRATOR: Chaz…

-A tall, tattooed guy, with cut up jeans and a mohawk, nods and snarls at the camera while he holds a ‘nerdy’ student upside down.

NARRATOR: (Faster cuts of guys waving at the camera flash up on the screen as the Narrator reads off the list) There was Michael, John, Enrique, Steve…

- SALLY’s eyes widen as the list continues to flash up on screen…

NARRATOR: …Jean-Pierre, Lazy Dave… Chris, Brian, Jennifer…

SALLY: Jennifer!?

NARRATOR: The point is, when she was at school your mom had a lot going on.

SALLY: But then she became my mom, right?

NARRATOR: Wrong!

SALLY: There’s more?

NARRATOR: And how.

-We PAN LEFT from a building entrance.

NARRATOR: After your mom graduated college, everything started falling into place for her. She had her dream job…

- MOM (25) seen shaking hands with her boss, smiling at camera.

NARRATOR: her dream car…

-She shakes hands with a salesman, same pose, smiling at camera.

NARRATOR: …she even met your father.

- Mom and Dad shake hands at the altar - exactly the same pose.

NARRATOR: Yes, everything was going just as planned. That was, until August 10th, 2004.

SALLY: Hey, that’s my birthday.

NARRATOR: That’s right!

SALLY: But that means…

NARRATOR: Don’t worry Sally, some of the best things in life AREN’T planned. Your mom found that out on the day you were born.

-We ZOOM IN on MOM (28) holding her child

-SALLY smiles, and proudly puts her large glasses back on.

NARRATOR: (encouragingly) There ya go.

-We FADE OUT from SALLY and FADE IN to the NARRATOR walking towards and talking to the camera.

NARRATOR: So what do you know about your mom? Maybe you’ve already asked all the important questions. Maybe you’re afraid to ask. Either way, you should try…

- Quick ZOOM IN on the NARRATOR’s face.

NARRATOR: …GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MOM!

- The title, ‘Getting to Know Your Mom’ WIPES onto the screen as the NARRATOR says it.

An expert on experts- the story of Dr. M

"An expert on experts- the story of Dr. M"

Text by malena

HERE on hitRECord

==

Dr.M was no ordinary expert. He was an expert on experts. His area of expertise was to determine if experts were as experienced as people expected.

Dr.M would usually meet with experts and evaluate their skills. As the president of the IEA (International Experts Association) he always had the final saying on whether someone was a qualified expert on thier field or not.

That was until one cold December afternoon. Dr.M came home around 7pm to find a mysterious letter on his doorstep. The letter read “I know your secret”.

Shit- he thought to himself. What should I do now?

Emotions overtook him: first fear, then panic, followed by sadness and despair which all led to drunkenness. Laying on his living room couch he came up with a solution, a brilliant plan to save his career and reputation. Unfortunately he did not write it down and when he woke up the next morning he had completely forgotten about it.

VOICE OVER SCRIPT: Untitled Number One Documentary

==

Are we a mass of separate individuals clawing through existence for our own self interest? Or is there some kind of patch work miracle that connects us?

In Pando, 47,000 Quaking Aspen trees are all connected by one, giant root structure.

Each tree - unique in its appearance. The entire forest - a single, living organism.

It’s a beautiful thing, the idea that we can live in harmony and exist next to each other — together.

-

[NOTE - some of the next lines will be replaced by user-submitted testimonial videos we have already received]

We all descend from a specific set of cells - a mitochondrial Eve and a Biological Adam.

99.9% identical in our genetic makeup.

Our unique features are what make us individuals.

0.1% our own person.

But there’s another reality. 

Deep in eastern Oregon, lives another massive organism.

Spanning 2200 acres, the Honey Mushroom spreads underground like an undetectable parasite, leaving large groves of dead trees in its wake.

It kills by feeding off the water and nutrients in their roots. 

Do humans resemble the harmonious nature of the Pando Forest? Or are we leeches like the Honey Mushroom?

-

[NOTE - many of the following lines are ideas that have been submitted by writing from the HitRECord community]

Our greatest commonalities are in our ability to empathize our experiences.

Shared moments of quiet sadness when our breath is vacant.

Learning to smile as we come to the realization that we are loved.

Pando is the small acts of kindness we do for one another, the relief we provide when people are in need; it’s smiling at a stranger on the bus.

When one tree gets sick, the roots feed it additional nutrients to nurse it back to health. 

Or are we something very different?

The human race continues to grow at an exponential rate; sapping Earth’s resources.

An infestation.

A virus.

Will the honey mushroom, like us, run out of forest to consume and be the cause of its own demise? 

Does our connection to each other offer hope for our survival? Or a hint to our future apocalypse? 

Which is it?

Are humans the Pando clone? Or are we the Honey Mushroom? (excerpt user submitted video)
