Welcome to Hollywood

Altenir Silva

I was in the parking lot. I wanted to save him. They cannot cut a piece of his body, please! They were bad men. He just would have me. I have to do anything to save him from the claws of those men. But what would I do?

Suddenly, I heard voices crying out from there. Yeah! They will cut him. I have to enter immediately. I have to do it quickly. I don't have a gun, but I have my sense of justice and this hammer, it isn't from Thor, but it must do some damage. And with that, I will shatter the door and do what I would have done some weeks ago. I won't let them hurt my movie.

So, Robert Carlot, a filmmaker full of rage, entered the editing room of the studio, and without shame, he began to hammer the movie editing equipment, much to the despair of the editor and his assistant.

EDITOR– What the fuck are you doing?

BOB– Saving my movie! This movie belongs to my mind!

EDITOR– The final cut doesn't belong to you!

BOB–  The images you chose will never appear on the screen.

At that moment, two security guards entered the room and arrested Bob Carlot, while the editor lamented the broken equipment. Bob still cried out to the editor, "The audience will never watch this rotten movie made by yourselves!" Then, the editor replied, "You idiot! The whole movie is in the cloud. It's just a download."

BREAKING NEWS: A hacker broke into the studio's cloud and released all scenes from the hammer-wielding filmmaker to the web. Now, everyone is editing their own version of the movie. Welcome to Hollywood!
