Simon's pencils with the script below.

SN5 -- Baby Steps: In which our hero foils a baby kidnapping, and gets some unwanted attention from the media (and introduces the reporter character we will use again and again).

Page ONE
A 'woman' walking a pram with a baby. Looking down on the whole thing, from SN's perspective, as he'll be perched on a building somewhere. The 'woman' is really a thuggish man in a dress and a wig, who will be unmasked, as it were, later.

1/1 Start zoomed into the pram, focused on the baby, and we zoom out in the next frames.
[ THE CHILD HARDLY MAKES A SOUND. ]
[ TOO YOUNG TO KNOW. ]

1/2 Zoom out a bit so we see at least some of the 'woman' pushing the pram. Maybe the hairy knuckles give him away.
[ TOO UNAWARE TO CARE. ]
[ TOO INNOCENT TO SENSE. ]

1/3 Show the woman pushing the pram and a bit of the street.
[ BUT I KNOW. I CARE. ]

1/4 The 'woman' looking up in horror as something (SN) leaps towards him. That whole alarm and movement thing you can do with effect lines.
[ I ACT. ]
