WELCOME TO HOLMES, INC Thumbnails and Script

PAGE ONE (4 panels)

Panel 1

Establishing shot.  Ext. Day.  A sunny afternoon on Baker Street in London.  Shoppers wander back and forth through a large corporate plaza reminiscent of the Toronto Science Centre’s.  An intricate interactive water fountain is on the right of the plaza, a curious sculpture composed of rings and pipes on the other.  In the foreground, a life-size bronze statue of Sherlock Holmes is moored in a concrete plaza, gazing serenely, pipe in hand and cap on head.  The plaza seems to be carved right out of a different place and time from the rest of Baker Street.  The other uniform four storey buildings press in on it.

In the background, at the back of the plaza, Holmes Inc. looms.  It is a ten storey modern/futuristic skyscraper nestled in the heart of busy modern-day Baker Street, A large professional corporate signage of “Holmes Inc.” is anchored to the top of the building.

Next to the large and ornate corporate entrance of Holmes Inc. is a small shop with a sign marked “The Sherlock Holmes Museum.”  Any other text is notably absent.  This is not our world’s Holmes Museum.  It is the museum of the real person, maintained by those who loved him as an epitaph, not as a cheap money maker. It looks as if Holmes Inc. was built over top of the little shop, an intermarriage of past and future.
