This is the first draft script for this project. The bold italic text will be written on screen and the rest will be spoken using a voice over. I have tried to replicate a script used in 1950's trailer which will hopefully be noticed. As mentioned before the voice will replicate that of a 1950's stereotypical American.
Draft Script #01:
And it crawls!
Some where out there lurks a creature
It could be in the forest, in the woods, it could even be in your garden.
What is this creature you say?
Well science can tell you
The life cycle of...
The Slime Mold (Big Title Entrance)
As one of the most horrifying single cell organism ever conceived reproduces on decaying vegetation near you.
Watch as amoeboid cells aggregate
Amoeboid cells aggregate
Forming into migrating colonies named pseudoplasmodium
See how they aggregate by following a chemical path produced by dead amoebas.
Watch how these migrating colonies form into a shape resembling a slug
Slug like creature
Observe this slug like creature crawling and ingesting bacteria in its path
Feeds on bacteria
Once settled this slug like creature then forms into a fruiting body
It Sacrifices its own cells to create life producing spores
Spores which feed on bacteria starting the life cycle over again.
It grows within days and could be anywhere
There's no stopping the slime mold as it dominates its environment.
So be aware!

This is due for some changes, as time goes by i can only assume some more information on the life cycle will be added. Plus a quick question for Phil, from an expert in this era of films ;) are there any other obviously old fashioned lines which come to mind which might be useful. Instead of the 'Watch how' 'Observe how' etc...
