Throwback Thursday: Sunshine’s Night of Darkness, Scene 4
SUNSHINE’S NIGHT OF DARKNESS
Synopsis: It’s Sunshine’s first day of work in security at the P.U.R.E Corporation and all she wants to do is make it through orientation, but first she’s got to fill out a name tag requisition form, fit her uniform, meet a cute computer geek … oh, and save her fellow employees from genetically-mutated, blood-lusting vampires.
Notes: All work is registered with the WGC & the WGA.
- Scene Four -
EXT. DOOR/INT. MAIN SECURITY, P.U.R.E CORPORATION – MOMENTS LATER
Taro swipes his name-tag by a scanner next to the glass door, the door slides open, and the group enters behind Taro. Multiple security screens display multiple rotating camera angles throughout the building. A bank of computers run security programs including a tracking application that details employee movement and currently highlights a red dot on the roof.
Expanding on our theme of renewal and revitalization, main security used to be the mail room, and though they moved the elevator in the renovation they kept the chutes for that classic touch. On every floor –
Right, back to security … as you see each section of the building requires a specially coded badge or visitor pass, and through them we can track where people are in the building.
Irma moves away, clearly not happy at Taro rushing her.
(indicating a monitor)
See? Someone with a master key just entered the roof. Huxley has been tweaking the program for us, Huxley?
It’s good to go, good to go.
Huxley slides in front of a keyboard and toggles a few keys. Taro reads off the screen from over Huxley’s shoulder.
Ah, Mr. Dixon, Head of Research and Development, but he doesn’t talk about it much.
Taro nods to Rashid, who grins at his own joke.
All heads carry a master key for higher function access.
Taro pulls on a chain around his own neck that holds a similar key to Dixon’s (seen in the previous scene).
But automation doesn’t sound very safe…
How safe it is, is the point. There’s no room for human error but, so not to worry you pretty little spa girls, there’s nothing that can’t be overridden with the right clearance.
Sunshine, not taking too kindly to Taro talking down to Callie, attempts to reinsert a professional tone.
If we need to access a non-job description defined area?
You ask for a security escort. Sunshine, your pass will get you most anywhere in the building, except the roof, and restricted computer access.
So … if I start seeing that cute guy from accounting, you’ll be able to help with our rendezvous’.
(not too sure about this)
Top-of-the-line fire, flood, and earthquake protection … a building doesn’t get safer than this one!
