Welcome to my ALTERNATE WORLD!
Pretty cool, eh?
Let’s set the scene…
Inside TINY WORD-OUT BOXING GYM-NIGHT TIME
A heavy bag sways from the ceiling with each KAPOW sound. The punching stops. AME, the face behind Script Tips, walks out from around the bag as she pulls off a pair of bag gloves.
A wide grin spread across her sweaty face as she sees YOU standing there.
This is my alternate world.
AME catches your gaze and holds it unwaveringly. You struggle to look away.
I wasn’t expecting company, but now that you insist on being here… Let’s get one thing out of the way–
She continues to hold your gaze for just a second before it becomes uncomfortable.
I’m Ame. You say it like Ah-may. NOT Amy.
Ame draws a deep before she launches into song.
That’s not my name
Ame double claps fingers to the bottom of her palm.
That’s not my name
She double claps again.
That’s not my naAAAhmee. Great song by the Ting Tings if you’ve never heard it.
You touch your ears to make sure there’s no blood coming out.
I know. I’m an awful singer. Never stops me though. Now, you’re probably wondering who I am?
You nod firmly.
Which I guess means you really want to know, am I legit enough for you to stick around?
Ame explores your face for a reaction. You don’t betray a hint of any. Ame walks over to the edge of the ring and sits down with hands folded over her knees.
I respect that. But I can’t answer that because…I don’t know what “legit” means to you. I don’t even know your name– feel free to slip that in whenever by the way. I can say there aren’t tons of people that focus on video scripts the way I do. You know, the message part?
Ame’s face scrunches up and she shrugs like she’s unsure.
So I’m legit by default?
A loud cackle erupts off screen. Ame’s gaze darts in its direction. Looking at her expression, we feel this happens often.
Ame looks back at You.
Kidding! I know what you’re asking.
I’ve made videos for a multinational software company–and they keep coming back for more.
3 of my videos secured funding from the World Food Programme to develop an app.
AND! I’ve saved a course from eye-glazing intro videos.
I’d call those wins. So…
Ame leaps up to her feet beaming with energy. She moves her arm across her hip and swings it wide out pointing into the distance as she says…
I’ll help you get where you want to be– making POWER MOVES with your video!
Rainbow-infused 80s synth music clicks on. You get the impression Ame is quirky. Or a bit mental.
Not on team power moves? Ahhhh fine, I’ll give you the boring spiel.
Ame unfreezes from her pose.
I’ll help you make impactful video content that actually gets results. You know–
More brand awareness.
Ame hops up onto the edge of the boxing ring to appear just ever-so-slightly taller.
And more street cred!…In your industry. I can’t actually help you with real street-street cred.
For some reason, people don’t believe I have any. Which is insane. Look at me!! How can you not think street cred? Just wait til I put out my EP with Powerbottom!
Your eyebrow raises at the name Powerbottom.
That’s my fake band name. We have songs. We’re just…not ready to record yet. But when we are, I’ll have so much street cred I won’t know what to do with it!
Ame gets down from the side of the ring and grabs a swig of water from a bottle sitting next to the ring.
Oh wait. You’re here because you’re making a video, right?
You nod like you’ve just remembered this yourself.
Need some help?
A Sharp “DING” fills the room.
Alrighty break time’s over. Gotta get back to training, so I’ll catch you later.
Ame scoops up her gloves and makes a move for the heavy bag. She calls over her shoulder…
Oh hey! Don’t forget to check your inbox. Your next email is waiting.
