    CASTING/SEEKING:

    SCENE #1 – RESTAURANT
    SYNOPSIS: A COUPLE HAS JUST WRAPPED UP THEIR POST DINNER ESPRESSO AS THE BILL IS PLACED ON THEIR TABLE. THEY GLANCE AT EACH OTHER WITH THE SUBTLEST OF SMILES, LIKE THEY’RE SHARING A SECRET… THE WOMAN/MAN PLACES AN AMERICAN EXPRESS AEROPLAN RESERVE CARD DOWN AND… SUDDENLY THE SONG BURSTS TO LIFE. THE COUPLE IMMEDIATELY GETS TO THEIR FEET AND BEGINS TO DANCE

    SCENE #2 – AIRPORT LOUNGE
    SYNOPSIS: WE COULD SEE ONE OF THE WOMEN FLASH HER CREDIT CARD HERE. OR MAYBE THEY JUST BREEZE IN, CAREFREE. IN ANY CASE, THEY DISPERSE, DANCING, MOVING AND TWIRLING IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. WE CUT CLOSER ON ONE WOMAN AS SHE GRABS A BOTTLE OF WATER OR SOME CHIPS. THE WOMEN COME BACK TOGETHER AND, IN ONE MOVEMENT, THEY ALL FLOP BACK INTO COMFY CHAIRS. THE WOMEN GRIN AT EACH OTHER, SILENTLY AGREEING TO SOMETHING, AND THEN LEAP BACK UP AND START DANCING AGAIN: AN IMPROMPTU PARTY IN THE

    SCENE #3 – PRIORITY CONSUMER
    SYNOPSIS: THEY DANCE IN SINGULAR WAYS – MOM IS PASSIONATE WHILE DAD IS MORE UNDERSTATED, BUT STILL WALKING WITH SWAGGERY RHYTHM (THINK OF ANSEL ENGORT IN THE BABY DRIVER SCENE.) THE GIRL BUSTS A TIK TOK STYLE DANCE AND THE BOY DOES INTERACTS WITH A PIECE OF ROLLING LUGGAGE IN SOME INVENTIVE WAY. THE FAMILY PASS SOME POSTERS ON THE WALL – AS THE DO, THE POSTERS REACT TO THEIR PRESENCE. MAYBE THE CHANGE COLOR OR SOME CHARACTER WINKS / GIVES THEM A THUMBS UP. THE FAMILY MOVES TOWARD THE TWO DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT LINES: PRIORITY (WHICH IS EMPTY) AND OTHER ZONES (WHICH IS MOST LIKELY FULL). WITH EASE AND BRAVADO, THEY STRUT AND DANCE INTO THE PRIORITY LINE. MOM FLASHES HER AMERICAN EXPRESS AEROPLAN REWARDS CARD AS HER
 FAMILY MOVES / DANCES AROUND HER.

    *** MUST BE A REAL BUBBLED FAMILY***
    MOM – FEMALE – 40s – ANY RACE
    PASSIONATE WITH HER MOVEMENTS
