This is a short film a few of us are going to make in December. I strongly recommend checking out the songs because they're awesome. Last names have been changed to protect the amusing. Except mine, because it's pretty well-known now... :D
Opening Credits: Touchdown Turnaround by hellogoodbye. Kirstin is at Kassy's house (the church) and they're getting things set up. At one point, cut to the mall where Quirke looks at a picture of Kirstin and then at the necklace he's holding.

(Fade to black)
Scene: The food court at the mall, more specifically, on the carousel. Quirke is riding the hummingbird, looking very serious like he's on some sort of quest. He's holding onto a small bag that contains jewelry. Then his cell phone rings and he takes it out of his pocket, still looking like he's on some sort of quest.
(Muffled speech on other end)
You better get over here, you're gonna be late!
It's gonna start soon! Where are you?
What are you doing?!
Well get over here!
I will… I just have to, er, finish something.
(CANTELOPE hangs up and QUIRKE looks around the carousel. He makes a motion as if to consider jumping off, but as that would probably get us in trouble with security, he will have to be resigned to waiting it out)
Scene: The church, AKA Kassy's house.
(Talking to CANTELOPE. She seems anxious)
Is Kitty here yet?
I called him and he said he's hurrying.
(Crosses her arms)
Well he better be.
He probably forgot where he parked his car.
(Cut to QUIRKE, who is still on the carousel. Then cut back to KIRSTIN and CANTELOPE)
(KASSY and STEPH walk up as CANTELOPE walks away)
What's going on?
The big dummy's not here yet.
(Looks at STEPH)
I'll bet you five dollars he forgot.
(They shake hands. KIRSTIN looks irritated)
Ladies and gentlemen, my best friends!
(From off scene)
Hey, Kirstin! Where's Josh!
(KIRSTIN looks annoyed)
No, my brother Josh!
Your guess is as good as ours!
(KIRSTIN throws her head back and the camera focuses on it from above)
Setting: Various areas. Improv of Quirke, who is now wearing sunglasses, running/driving all over creation and the occasional church scene (doesn't really need to be anything wedding-related: playing cards, talking in general, stuff like that) set to "The Notion" by FM Static. No shot should last more than twenty seconds. In the middle of the song, cut the music. Quirke pulls up to a McDonald's drive-thru window to get an ice cream cone (not the actual ordering, just the pick-up). When he drives out of the parking lot, the music starts again and the clips. The last clip should be him driving into the distance.
Setting: "The church." Kirstin is anxiously checking the clock.
(The PASTOR walks up to KIRSTIN and taps her shoulder)
Kirstin, we should really get started.
(Looks between the PASTOR and the clock)
I'm sure he'll be here soon. Just a few more minutes.
You could get someone to stand in for him so at least you'll know what to do.
(Looks at the clock one last time before sighing)
Fine… boy, when I get my hands on that big idiot…
(Notices the PASTOR's disapproving look)
Er… I'll hug him to death.
Nice. Real nice.
(The PASTOR walks away from a very sheepish-looking KIRSTIN. Then cut outside, where QUIRKE is speeding down the road. Then cut back inside where KIRSTIN is standing with BRANDEN. The others are sitting down doing some quick improv about any other topic besides marriage)
OK, so what I want you to do is-
(The doors fly open with QUIRKE standing in the middle of the entrance. Cue fanfare- Deathbed by Relient K from 09:57- 10:01. It'd be really cool if we could get the background to glow… does that make sense?)
(Stares at QUIRKE)
(Cue epic music- again Deathbed from 8:07-8:50 (or as long as needed). QUIRKE starts running towards KIRSTIN and BRANDEN in slow motion. The others watch with great interest. When he reaches KIRSTIN and BRANDEN, he tackles BRANDEN and things return to normal speed)
(Who has BRANDEN pinned)
My own BLOOD! How could you do this?!
Dude, you didn't show up and SOMEONE had to do it!
MY OWN BROTHER!
(Stands up and shoots them all a distasteful look)
Uh… you do know this is just the rehearsal, right?
(Long silence. The camera pans over all their expressions. KASSY looks very smug and STEPH looks bitter)
OK. Pay up.
(Cut to end credits)
End credits: Rubber Donkey (songs to wear pants to . com). It's all wedding pictures.
