INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT
A young girl, ROSE, presses a gentle kiss to her MOTHER’s
forehead. The bedroom is grey and empty.
Over 150,000 children in England
are caring for their relatives.
Her mother’s eyes drift shut as she falls asleep. Rose
switches off the lights and quietly leaves the room.
Rose’s eyes are tired, lonely. She rubs them with the palms
of her hands as she walks away from the door.
The hallway distorts around her. And then, she is falling
through a dark void. Rose clenches her eyes shut. Darkness.
INT. DARKNESS – NIGHT
Rose opens her eyes, a single spotlight on her. She is alone.
An item falls nearby, just outside the light of the
spotlight. She creeps towards it, and it comes into light. It
is a paintbrush.
Rose inspects it carefully. She looks around, but there is
nothing to paint on.
She crouches near the ground, the brush hovers for a moment.
At Create, we believe in the power
of the creative arts to transform lives.
Finally, Rose strokes the brush across the floor. Colour
bursts around her. Blues, greens, reds, yellows.
She jumps back, surprised, taking the brush with her. The
colour stops spreading.
The beginning of a purple path has appeared in front of her.
Rose’s eyes brighten. She smiles widely. She places the brush
back on the floor, more excitedly this time. The path begins
Rose runs down the path. Different paintings emerge around
her, endless possibilities.
EXT. FIELD – DAY
As the path extends, the colours seep from the pathway,
painting the darkness around it.
Rose continues to run down the path and watches in awe as a
field forms around her. Flowers sprout from the ground, the
sun shines bright.
Then she notices other children running along their own paths
One girl plays a musical instrument, notes forming along the
ground that she runs across.
A boy runs along a extending piano keyboard, music notes
filling the air around him.
A boy and a girl dance, they run along their ribbon paths.
A girl in a wheel chair holds a camera, taking pictures as
she follows the path made of camera film.
And a few other children even hold paintbrushes like Rose’s,
painting their paths like her.
The children all meet in the middle of the field. They stand
in a circle, happy smiles on their faces as they all join
The camera zooms out and the paths that the children have run
down have formed the Create’s logo. Below it appears the tag
line ‘Imagine, Make, Create’.
Imagine. Make. Create.
