    Cool Out on the TAMRON Crystal Dune Sea

    EXT TAMRON CRYSTAL DUNE SEA - SKIFF 23

    Rooz's huge SAIL BARGE moves above the New Jersey crystalline
    surface accompanied by two smaller SKIFFS. One of the skiffs
    glides close, revealing Frank, Ryan, and Peter -- all in bonds --
    surrounded by guards, one of whom is the "other" Ryan in
    disguise.

    RYAN
    I think my eyes are getting better. Instead
    of a big dark blur, I see a big light blur.

    FRANK
    There's nothing to see. I used to live here,
    you know.

    RYAN
    You're gonna die here, you know. Convenient.

    FRANK
    Just stick close to Peter and the "other" Ryan. I've
    taken care of everything.

    RYAN
    Oh... great!

    (This is all meant with humorous intent and none of it is to be taken seriously.)

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Red face A few days at the marsh ...

    EXTERIOR: New Jersey – Frank’s “Hunting Shack” (BOG) -- DAY

    Frank's face is upside-down and showing enormous strain. He
    stands on his hands, with Don perched on his feet. Opposite Frank and
    Don are two flash strobes the size of over-sized footballs. Frank stares
    at the strobes and concentrates. One of the strobes lifts from the
    ground and, literally, floats up to rest upon the other.

    DON: Use of the Farce. Yes ...

    Don taps Frank's leg. Quickly, Frank lifts one hand from the
    ground, grabs his A100 and begins to align his right eye with the
    viewfinder. His body wavers, but he maintains his balance. Frank’s
    remote shutter control and tripod, standing nearby, begins to whistle
    and beep insistently.

    DON: Now ... the strobe. Feel it.

    Frank concentrates on trying to lift the top strobe. It rises a
    few feet, shaking under the strain. But, distracted by the remote's
    insistent beeping, Frank loses his balance and finally collapses. Don
    jumps clear.

    DON:
    Concentrate!

    Annoyed at the disturbance, Frank looks over at the remote
    and his tripod, rocking back and forth in front of him.
    The remote is still chirping wildly, then falls over to the edge of
    the swamp. Catching on, Frank rushes to the water's edge. His “hunting
    shack” has sunken in the marsh, and only the front of the porch shows
    above the marsh's surface.

    FRANK: Oh, no. I'll never get a decent shot of it, now.

    Don stamps his foot in irritation.

    DON:
    So certain are you. Always with you, it cannot be done. Hear
    you nothing that I say?

    Frank looks uncertainly out at the shack.

    FRANK: Moving strobes around is one thing. This is totally different.

    DON: No! No different! Only different in your mind. You must unlearn what
    you have learned.

    FRANK:
    (focusing, quietly) All right, I'll give it a try.

    DON: No! Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.

    Frank closes his eyes and concentrates on thinking the shack out.
    Slowly, the shack's porch begins to rise above the sloppy mud. It
    hovers for a moment and then slides back, disappearing, once
    again.

    FRANK:
    (panting heavily) I can't. It's too big.

    DON: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hm?
    Mmmm.

    Frank shakes his head. Don's a pretty big dude!

    DON:
    And well you should not. For my ally is a Farce … and a
    powerful joke it is, too. Light creates it, makes it shine. It's energy
    surrounds us and bakes us. Luminous beings we become ... reflections
    of the light (Don pinches Frank's shoulder) ... not this crude matter.
    (a sweeping gesture) You must feel the Farce around you, concerning
    this. (gesturing) Here, between you ... me ... that stupid billboard ...
    the water ... everywhere! Yes, even between this marsh and that shack!

    FRANK:
    (discouraged) You want the impossible.

    Quietly Don turns toward the “Hunting Shack.” With his eyes
    narrowed and his head held steady, he raises his A700 and aims it at the
    shack.
    Soon, the hunting shack rises above the slop that surrounds it and
    moves forward as remote control beeps. The entire shack moves steadily
    above the marsh. Don stands on a tree root and levels the shack carefully.
    Frank stares in astonishment as the shack settles down on to the marsh.
    He walks toward Don.

    FRANK:
    I don't ... I don't believe it.

    DON:
    Wait till you see the panorama!

    Frank shakes his head, bewildered.

    (This is all meant with humorous intent and none of it is to be taken seriously.)

    Don I seen your post had a nightmare about the shack. I got up early this morning and drove as fast as I could to see if it was still there and this is what I found.
