Whilst we start with an interior, the first footage we see is external (previously filmed). A travel presenter walks thru’ an exotic market in a foreign country. He speaks to camera(any dialogue)- suddenly the film rewinds at speed- repeats- moving slower- one frame at a time- without sound.
PULL BACK to reveal MARK- at an Avid editor- staring hard at the screen. He moves the footage on a frame- uses a magnifying-glass to peer closer- rolling the frame back and forth. He calls a friend- DES- over.
                                 Des!. Take a look, will you?

Phew. Where to start:

Formatting: No need to under line slugs or peoples names.

Whilst we start with an interior, the first footage we see is external (previously filmed).  ? ? ? You need to show us that. The first scene should be EXT. PLACE -TIME

This scene needs alot of tidying up. You don't cap your characters or give them a description.

Your descriptions are very very wordy.

I totally agree with the above.  I couldn't get past the formatting.  Also, it would be helpful if we knew what the guy noticed in the film (hippie stall holder) before he was mesmerized by it.  Found it a little confusing.

Get the software and we can talk.

Your comments welcome on:  GOD GETS FIRED.  Comedy, 89 pages.  Humans are such a failure that God loses his job.  Worse, his ex-wife is appointed to oversee Earth’s destruction.  Luckily, God has a plan…but it’s not about saving us.  It’s about winning her back.
