The Dorothy Scene

It's a scene from the Noir script I wrote. This is the scene where Coyote's first introduced in the story, bringing along a little noir girl name Dorothy for Charlie to interpret.


Noir is a mystery set in the 1950's, in a world where if someone dies of during or because of a crime, they return as a shadow creature known as a noir. They tend to have glitched sounding speech, especially when emotional (like, say, from being dead). Charlie Brooksfield (dude with the notepad) is a translator and starts learning how the noir are talking, and becomes a noir translator/interpreter.

Coyote (far left) is a spazzy (if compassionate) accountant who eventually teams up with Charlie to help noir (and usually get wrapped up in some sort of crazy mystery along the way). The guy on the far right is Prof. Boyer, an expert on noir who likes to observe them (even though he's convinced most noir are crazed criminals). He usually gets dragged reluctantly into the mysteries as well.
