                                            **TEASER VIDEO - CAMP CREEK**


The camera slowly advances on someone on the back screened porch rocking in a rocking chair.


While the camera continues to advance on the grandmother we hear narration from a newscaster.

                                           NEWSCASTER
                         After 14 days we are still no closer to finding out what

                         happened to seven family members who disappeared and

                         are presumed dead.


The camera continues to advance over the back of the grandmother's shoulder and we see she is watching a video of her family over and over again on a very small screen. We hear the audio of her family saying "We love you mom" over and over again.


The camera turns from the grandmother to interior of the house. We see a little boy holding a very large knife in front of another little girl and slowly lifts it in front of her face. The little girl doesn't move but watches the boy advance.


CHANGE SCENE TO A PARK FOLLOWING A RUNNER WITH A DOG ON A TRAIL BUT HEAR THE NEWSCASTER CONTINUE TO TELL THE STORY ABOUT THE MURDERED FAMILY.


                                            NEWSCASTER
                           The case has made national news due to the horrific nature

                           of some of the bodies that were found and the many questionable

                           circumstances surrounding these deaths at Camp Creek Park.

CUT TO A C.U. OF JEFFERSON VERY AGITATED LOOKING AWAY FROM THE TRAIL TO
THE WOODS BEYOND.

                                            JEFFERSON
                               (growling and/or barking)

                                            
ANNIE STOPS RUNNING AND JOGS IN PLACE TO WAIT FOR JEFFERSON
                                            RUNNER

                               Jefferson, come on boy!

Annie slowly walks back toward the dog with her leash. Jefferson barks at something deep within the forest and takes off running.

                                             RUNNER

                               Jefferson No! Come Back!

CUT TO A C.U. OF THE INTERIOR OF GRANDMOTHERS HOUSE AGAIN.

                                          NEWSCASTER
                               Many minority groups across the country believe the

                               local sheriff's department have been dragging their feet

                               on solving this case and are calling for the Sheriff to turn

                               the case over to the FBI.


The little boy steps forward with the knife in his hands with a serious look on his face (he is concentrating very hard). He puts the blade 
close to the little girl's neck.


A LOUD TERRIBLE SCREAM IS HEARD.


CUT TO THE PARK C.U. FACE OF THE RUNNER
A scream rings out as the runner kneels down and finds her dog slain and bloody and we hear movement through the trees heading towards the back of the kneeling runner.


CUT TO A C.U. OF THE SHERRIFF AND FBI AGENT
FBI agent confronts the Sherriff directly. Slams him up against the wall and gets in his face seething with rage.

                                          AGENT MATHERS
                                I don't care what your position is here. If I find out you

                                had anything to do with covering up these murders.

                                I'll be coming back for you.


CAMERA EXT  - THE PARK - AT NIGHT

Someone is hurt but they are dragging their body across the forest floor, they can see the van exterior lights from where they are. They have the camera with them as they drag themselves across the forest floor. Their breathing is very loud and they are terrified. They see the van is pulling off and try to yell but their voice is hoarse, not sure if it's a man or woman.


                                         PERSON IN PARK
                               Please, don't leave...


                                         NEWSCASTER
                               Protests have erupted across the country as ordinary

                               citizens are demanding action and some believe there

                               is a chance that there could still be survivors.


The van is slowly pulling away out of the park entrance and their
voice is muffled. They keep dragging themselves across the ground
slowly. Then we hear movement in the brush then camera light goes out
with a crash like someone threw it on the ground to break the light.
