Water Balloons

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / TV & Cinema Crafts / Editing / 2006

The scene opens on a man throwing a water balloon out of the window of a dilapidated apartment complex. It then cuts to a woman looking out of her windowsill getting hit by the water balloon. The next scene cuts to a posterior shot of a group of kids running into a courtyard. As they enter the scene, they are ambushed by a group of kids hiding behind a low wall. A group of adults in a street attack each other with water balloons. An older man sprints for cover as he is peppered by an onslaught of incoming balloons. Kids throw balloons in unison off the top of a stairwell like they are grenades. A truck drives through the scene, getting hit from all sides with balloons. A line of kids on steps hand down balloons similar to an ammo line, a teen slides down a slickened wall, a little kid taunts throwers from above before he nervously ducks for cover. A team of people launch a sheet full of balloons off the top of a building, as the shot pulls wide the audience sees the balloons coming down amidst the escalating action. The final shot is of a large puddle of water and the audience see a reflection of the scene; people running into the fray. ‘Jump In. Xbox 360’
