EXT. DENSE WOODLAND - DAWN
Mist swirls amidst the trunks of the trees of an ancient forest.
BURLY MAN arrives, clearly a lumberjack, armed with a large axe.
He chops down a tree.
The sun rises.
BURLY MAN is accompanied by SLIGHTLY MORE BURLY MAN.
They each chop down trees.
After a while, they stop. They make a pot of tea. They
talk about the possibility of working together as a team.
The sun rises.
BURLY MAN and SLIGHTLY MORE BURLY MAN return with a two-man saw.
EXT. NOT-SO-DENSE WOODLAND - WINTER - DAWN
Snow falls gently, wafting around the trees.
A white rabbit hops around.
SPRING - DAWN
A team of workmen arrives, armed with saws. Tree-felling begins.
BURLY MAN and SLIGHTLY MORE BURLY MAN talk animatedly with
ENGINEER at a table on which can be seen blueprints; the designs
for the mechanical treefeller-hauler (MTH).
EXT. FARMLAND, TREES IN BACKGROUND - DAWN
It's ten years later.
MTH can be seen in the background, felling trees on the border
of the farmland. BURLY MAN, SLIGHTLY MORE BURLY MAN and ENGINEER
congratulate each other over the completion of the autonomous
control center upgrade recently installed in the MTH.
EXT. FARMLAND AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE - DUSK
Another five years have passed.
BURLY MAN, SLIGHTLY MORE BURLY MAN, ENGINEER and a team of
(non-)workers relax, drinking tea and chatting.
MTH rolls up.
(Its voice is both oily and gravelly
at the same time.
It sighs, somewhat wearily.)
All done, boss...
Hey, do you think I could
learn how to make tea?
