This is supposed to be a script? A movie script?

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
Well, if you really want to think about it, it’s not so much.

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
Didn’t think so.

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
I mean, not what’s written here. It’s the positions. People buy their spot and then they can take off with it.

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
And you’re supposed to make a movie out of all this?

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
Fractal scripting makes it work.

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
That’s it?

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
People making a story is real, in a way.

WRITER
He doesn’t want the risk.

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
The risk is minimal. Because it’s a movie.

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
The risk is that it might not be a movie.

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
I’m just involved in movie-making.

He’s not gonna reach the stars.

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
There’s only one way this is gonna work.

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
You wanna change the plot now?

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
If somebody rules the movie, they can rule the world. It’s all one thing.

You know what kind of fire you’re playing with?

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
I do if we’re gonna use our names and really get in this.

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
You think we can stay out?

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
You want me to put you in the movie?

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
My life’s already a fucking movie. So far I haven’t actually ruled the world, so, I think this is gonna fuckin’ rock.

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
You think we can pull off a double plot?

‘REAL’ TECH GIANT CEO
There’s no double plot. One of us is emperor and one of us is not.

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
One of us is making a movie, that’s what’s happening.

Yeah. But somebody’s gonna own the slots.

‘REAL’ FILM AGENT
