Simon's pencils with the script below.

[ I'm a cop. ]
Close up of the cop, esp. his face. I think he should have the standard cop mustache, and be just a little overweight in the jowls. He is an undercover cop, so he does not wear a uniform.

[ My father was a cop. ]
Photograph picture (from the seventies, so that faded colour you always get in those pictures.) of a similar looking man in a cop uniform from the past. Make sure it looks like a photo, maybe in a frame on a desk, or being held.

[ His father,... well, he was a loser. ]
The grandfather, looking like a failed 50s greaser, with the elvis hair, sideburns, etc. But obviously not doing well.
[ A low-life street hustler with more grease in his hair than money in his pocket. ]

[ Grand-daddy was an inspiration to the family. He showed what a life of petty crime got you... ]
Granddad getting the snot beaten out of him buy some heavies.
[ ... Jail-time, a string of ex-wives, knife wounds, bad tattoos, and a dark, bitter taste in your mouth every morning. ]

[ So my father became a cop... ]
Long frame that's a homage to the ape to man evolution icon, except showing grand-dad (slouching) to dad (cop in uniform, slightly bent over) to our 'hero' as undercover cop.
[ ... and I followed in his flat footsteps. ]
