This week's Friday Sketch War theme was "The Heist". I fly off to Florida tomorrow, so here's my entry today:
Friday Sketch War The Heist Edition "The Team" FADE IN: INT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE - NIGHT BILL sits at a table piled high with schematics, maps, and diagrams. Guns, rapelling equipment, and electronic gadgets sit on another nearby table. A nearby chalkboard shows the (heavily-annotated) floor plan of a large mansion. A giant photo thumbtacked to the chalkboard shows a big, glittery diamond. Beyond the tables and chalkboard: darkness. Bill scribbles on the papers, checks a map against the chalkboard floorplan. A DOOR OPENS somewhere in the dark. JULIAN steps into the light. JULIAN Mr. Ellis. Our employer hopes your plan for obtaining the Zawabi Diamond is coming together? BILL It's the perfect heist, kid.
