Editing Scripts????


Could the scripts just be shortened to:

Script 1:
A voice cuts in as the weatherman smiles at the camera.
Voice: "Cut, Good job, Martin"
The weatherman, shakes his head, opens his mouth wide and works the muscles of his mouth, scowls…
As he’s walking off he yawns/scratches his arse (=> or not)
Would definitely be able to get in to 20secs that way….

Script 2:
As the farmer gets out to open the gate, he sticks his foot in a mucky patch, looses his wellie and steps/ squelches with only a sock on into a puddle of shitty water/ or just shit…..

P.S.- I don’t have a tractor…. but I hear they’re popular (dunno if they’d be hard to come by or what)
