An audition of B-grade monsters for a movie.

The movie opens with a monster in the city bowl destroying buildings. He ROARS. He knocks another building. He ROARS. He smashes the side of the hill. He ROARS. He knocks a plane out the sky. He… stops. Stares. Eyes dart. He reaches into his back pocket, pulls out a tiny script and tiny spectacles, bends down and quickly searches for his line. He ROARS. The camera pans off over to other B-Movie monsters waiting to audition. Boom mic falls into shot. This is the first part which will last about 45-60 seconds. Then we are planning on around 60 seconds of gags - possibly 6 x 10 second bits. What would bad monster-actors do while waiting to audition etc.

Craft table - monster roars up to the table looking mean and nasty, suddenly composes himself as his posture shows delight, and daintily takes a snack with pinky raised and nibbles away.
