Batman picks up the phone
Joker? How are you? It has been a while. What are you up to? The End of the World? Tomorrow? Well, at least is something worth worrying about. No small fry. And where will that be?
Why in the Bank of Gotham? (….) To collect your money and deposit it right away? Sounds logical. I know the credit card companies do not wait. So, if they pay the ransom you will not bring about the End of the World? (….)
Batman receives a phone call in his cell phone. At first he touches several wrong buttons, finally he manages to pick up the call. The Chief needs help to disable several nuclear bombs set up by Penguin. Batman is ready to help. But in the meantime, another phone call enters by some telemarketer, and Batman is not sure on how to manage two phone calls at once.
This short script for video or TV requires minimal scenery. Like all the ones in the category “Genie” it can refer to a male or female “genie”. The Genie uses a simple costume, with a couple of sheets used as robe and head scarf. Wide purple or red belt, also made with a sheet. The lamp can be made of cardboard. These elements are used for 6 or 7 episodes of Genie written so far. The sponsors for this video set may be multiple. Any product that does something like “magic”. Or anything to fill someone’s wishes, as does the Genie.
The Genie of the Lamp stands guard near Pedrito, who is relaxed while reading a magazine.

– Coffee, Master?
– Yes, I could have some coffee
– Maybe with a little liqueur?
– Do me an Irish coffee. And a glass of milk.
– We are out of milk. The milkman should be coming any moment. And we are also out of whiskey. I have cognac. Continue reading
Supermag is a lousy magician, but has a very pretty asistant. He is mixing a deck of cards and they fall from his hands. He spends time collecting them.
He talks to the cameraman explaining how to fix the mishap: combine a video played backwards to the video of the accident card fall. We later see the fixed video, where the magician has his cards go back to his hand.
The cameraman will be part of many other episodes, because he can cut and paste film to make “magic” tricks, like the assistant disappearance.
He invites someone from the public to select a card. He takes the card and puts it back in the deck, but both forget which card it was. The asistant smiles all the time at the crowd and is unable to help.

The cameraman is tempted with some of the food.
He approaches a cherry and stops there for a while, in spite of the Chef desire that he focuses on an empty pan. Continue reading
The Journalist, Louis, interviews a boring and pedantic guest, an unknown actress who speaks without a pause. On the table there are two glasses of water and a bowl of potato chips. The journalist tries a potato and an exagerated noise is heard:
From the controlling room a sound technician makes exagerated gestures to him, warning about the loud noise of the crunchy potato chip.
The journalist, very carefully, breaks down a chip with his fingers and takes a very small piece to his mouth. Again, a loud:
A pretty female journalist reads the news and points to the images on a big screen monitor… the news are most unusual but the camera is pointing to the girl body (cleavage, legs, waist) rather than to the news monitor. Continue reading
