TEXT BOX 1
Asunción. February 25, 2021
This is the worse energy crisis we ever had.
The President in his office, in the Palace of Government, watching for TV the little war in the middle of the city. He looks anxious and nervous.
Sr. ... I think we have to call them now.
I know, but I am thinking how to explain the unusual situation we have here.
A wide shot of the President’s office. The office is large and well-appointed with an impressive desk (and maybe a portrait of the
President himself).The President has turned away from the and TV
is facing his ASSISTANT, who paces nervously.
After they get public last week, They are full of petitions of help from every place in the world, where exist a problem. We have contact them now.
Close up on the President.
Ok Lorena, send the EVOKE.
Close up on the Assistant.
I am on it Sr.
The assistant is talking at the phone. In the hall.
We see a sign light up on the screen in a computer. "Incoming Call...DOTU"
TEXT BOX 1
A high-tech surveillance room. Computer and video screens relay news and images from all over the world. The star display is a digital world map, covered with data. We can see that the message Light up on the screen in the computer a symbol with the reading... "Incoming Call ... DOTU". In the foreground is ALCHEMY, in silhouette, sitting at a desk reading the message.He wears a wireless headset.
Answering the call .."Agent Lorena .... Pleaser to hear you"
ASSISTANT 1 ( AGENT LORENA ARIAS)
Hello Alchemy, we need the Evoke Network help in Paraguay.
We have a unusual energy crisis.
The energy resource is enough by the Bi national Itaipú and Yacyreta, to provide the country and sell the rest to Brasil.
The distribution channels are complete to this year.
Our problem is the transmission,the channel have trouble to support the energy necessary to covert all the country and the cost to increase the transmission channels make the people pay hight energy bills and taxes to finance the operation.ALCHEMY 2
On one screen we see a picture of Ember, captioned with EVOKE MEMBER CODENAME: EMBER. A touch-screen button underneath her dossier says “ACTIVATE”. Alchemy is pushing it. (this could be broken into two
panels, or a main panel and an inset of the action).
TEXT BOX: University of Legon, Ghana.
A classroom. EMBER is in the middle of a lecture. The lecture hall is full of students, all watching her with rapt attention. In the front row is a student wearing a t-shirt that says “I believe EVOKE is real”
in a Helvetica font. Also apparent in the lecture hall are several
giant screens, from which still more students watch and listen in rural
classrooms. A textbook says “Resilient Logistics”. Each of these next
three scenes should be tinted with the color tone of the character.
Ember is yellow, so this scene should have a palette that features
yellows and golds.
So if we look at the social problems caused by the urban population increase of 2019-
INSET PANEL B
A silver phone, something like a next-gen iPhone, on her desk is ringing.
Close up on Ember, looking at the phone.
Excuse me, class. We’ll pick up this discussion next week.
Ember picks up the phone and opens the laptop secretively as her class files out. In the background, two students whisper as they leave.
What do you bet she pulls another one of her disappearing acts?
This is Ember.
ALCHEMY 1 (splitscreen him in)
It’s Alchemy. There’s a problem in Paraguay. I’m sending you in.
Yes, I see that coming, I just spok with Lorena last week, she was concern to the possibility of this could happen.
Well, now is a reality and we have to find a solution.
TEXT BOX: Bo-Kaap Township. Capetown
We are inside a small fabrication shop. Outside a window in the background, we can see a billboard with the EVOKE logo and the tagline “It could be anyone.” In the extreme foreground is a laser cutter. The
color palette for this scene is purple. EUREKA, who was operating the
device, has just removed a safety visor from her face. She is talking
on a similar silver phone, a laptop open on the desk in front of her.
She looks serious, but also excited, energized.
The disturbs are in all the cities or is only in the capital of the country?
I am sending you the report at your cell phone right now.
INSET PANEL B
Alchemy in his control room.
We need you as son as posible.
Back in the workshop. Eureka has a duffle bag in her hand.
How soon can you leave?
INSET PANEL D
Close up on Eureka.
Give me an hour.
A reverse shot from overhead. Eureka has the duffle in hand. In front of her is a wall bristling with tools of all kinds. The tools range from low-tech (wrenches, hammers, pliers, etc) to super high-tech
devices with graphical displays, lasers for topographical maps, RFID
sensors, to precision devices like micrometers. The idea is an
overwhelming juxtaposition of a variety of tools.
I just need to pack up some tools.
TEXT BOX: The Great Rift Valley, Kenya.
We are outside a busy farm. A simple sign identifies this location as the Happiness Honey Collective. A row of beekeepers tend to hives of honeybees, and we can see greenhouses in the distance. In the distance,
workers load palettes of honey jars into a truck. In the foreground is
QUINN, standing at a table with his laptop and phone out. A little ways
behind him (out of earshot), an associate watches a helicopter visible
in the distance. The tint for this sequence is orange.
How bad is the situation?
I’m sending you a detailed brief.
Quinn’s laptop screen shows a cascade of data under the heading EVOKE 001285:
A graph showing a Google map with a red sing in every where is a civil crisis.
News headline: "UNUSUAL CASE...Paraguay is in the biggest energy crisis of the History... Without a lack of Energy."
Projected mortality rates.
I think.... I have an Idea how we get true this.
What are you suggesting?
If we can get enough investors to sell part of the energy at future reducing the cost for the people in Paraguay that will be the start of the solution
Sounds like you’ve got your work cut out for you, Quinn. Good luck.
The helicopter from the previous frame touches down near Quinn. It has the EVOKE logo on it.
ASUNCIÓN. THE PRESIDENT’S OFFICE.
A big-screen TV is flashing “INCOMING CALL.”

Pass me the call.
