English 9 Video Project – DL10



Our assignment was to recreate a scene from Sherman Alexie’s, “The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.” Our scene was when Arnold runs away from Rowdy (Arnold’s Best Friend) but unluckily bumps into the Andruss Triplets.  Arnold gets teased and hurt with his encounter with the Andruss Triplets.

Arnold- David

Andruss Brothers- Jonah, (John)  Oliver (Jim), Laith (Joe)


*****************************************************************************************************************************Script for the video:


Arnold: “was scared of Rowdy and I was scared of getting thrown in jail for vandalism, so I ran. That was a mistake. I ran right into the Andruss brothers’ camp. The Andrusses – John, Jim and Joe – are the cruelest triplets in the history of the world. 

Joe: “Hey, look” 

Arnold: One of them said.

Joe: “It’s Hydro Head.”

Arnold: Yep, those bastards were making fun of my brain disorder. Charming, huh?

John: “Nah, he ain’t Hydro.” 

Arnold: Said another one of the brothers.

John: “He’s Hydrogen.” 

Arnold: I don’t know which one said that. I couldn’t tell them apart. I decided to run again, but one of them grabbed me, and shoved me toward another brother. All three of them shoved me to and fro. They were playing catch with me.  

Jim: “Hydromatic.”

Joe: “Hydrocarbon.”

John: “Hydrocrack.”

Jim: “Hydrodynamic.”

Joe: “Hydroelectric.”

John: “Hydro-and-Low.”

Jim: “Hydro-and-Seek.”

Arnold: fell down. One of the brothers picked me up, dusted me off and then kneed me in the balls. I fell down again, holding my tender crotch, and tried not to scream. The Andruss brothers laughed and walked away. Oh, by the way, did I mention that the Andruss triplets are 30 years old? What kind of men beat up a 14-year-old boy? Major-league assholes. I was lying on the ground, holding my nuts as tenderly as a squirrel holds his nuts…..
