FADE IN:

EXT. WERKPLAATS TYPOGRAFIE (WT), ARNHEM, THE NETHERLANDS

The back of a GIRL in pink underwear, she leans at a big window, looking out over Arnhem.

CUT TO:

INT. WT STUDIO - MIDNIGHT

In the backseat of a Presidential limousine, BOB (late-twenties), tired and depressed, leans against a little doily, staring out the window.

BOB
This is going to be a four-day workshop exploring translation in its various forms using graphic design as an approach, rather than an outcome — while challenging forms of publishing and incorporating an expanded notion of visual language... in the KOSMOS.
CUT TO:

The Director yells something about ten sentences long.
The translator nods.

MARIA Participation in the workshop is free of charge and includes a round-trip train ticket to Plovdiv. Facilities (including printer, paper, camera & scanner etc.) and production costs for the final exhibition are also provided.
Participants will have to take care of their accommodation in Plovdiv for 3 nights and preferably bring a laptop.

CUT TO:

INT. WT BASEMENT – DAY

JIN Is that everything? It seemed like he was saying a lot less.
OLYA Less is more if you are interested in taking part in this workshop.
Please e-mail us by 6th June at:
KOSMOS@WERKPLAATSTYPOGRAFIE.ORG,
stating your full name, year of birth, current study/work situation and mention a couple of your favourite movies.

CUT TO:

BOB (line from commercial)
For relaxing times, make it—

BOB & BARTENDER ‘Zagorka time’!
MARIA smiles at him sympathetically.

They hear a bang on the door and OLYA hops in. JIN makes sure she is ok and shouts something to the Driver, and they speed away.

MARIA By the way, the whole thing will be in English...so, yeah.
CUT TO:

DECADENT AMSTERDAM PARTY - NIGHT

MARIA dances with JIN - she looks sweaty but beautiful... BOB dances with his eyes closed, really into it, in the midst of all of them... the song “Please Don't Keep Me Waiting” plays.

ANNIEK & ARMAND The Werkplaats Typografie (WT), a part of the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, is a two-year graphic design masters programme located in Arnhem, The Netherlands.
