  1. Hi

    As a script it almost there...I would suggest using a 'cut/ beep' style of edit between each a event (like it was being filmed for science records and someone shouted 'cut' because it wasn't working). That will allow you to move quickly to the next sequence and not necessarily need a scientist at all (sorry Tom). The end is almost there but needs a bit of tightening..for example the explosion is a little extreme (also a bit vague at the moment) and the phone dying needs to be worked out visually (how do we see the phone etc). Its close though so either come a see me to refine it further or dive back in and tinker with it a bit more and repost.
