Setting: A flat (apartment) in London, England circa late 1800’s, just after dusk.
Introduction: The story begins with an illustrator walking to his desk, lighting a candle, and beginning to work.
Middle/Rising Action: Time passes. He discards several unsuccessful ideas. The wastebasket fills. With a view from behind the protagonist, out of nowhere a voice can be heard calling into question his skill. Camera cuts to the other side of the room showing the Antagonist. Various cuts between the illustrator trying to work through the heckling and the antagonist goading him on.
Climax: The face from the other side of the room proclaims, “You’ll never be able to do it!” and slams his fist on the desk. The camera pans/rotates back to the illustrator’s fist on the shaking desk. He grabs a book throwing it at the antagonist in fury. The motion slows down as the camera moves back to the other side of the room, with a slightly clearer view showing the illustrator‘s reflection in a large mirror that is struck by the book and shatters.
Resolution: Not sure if it should end there, have a resolution mixed in with the credits, or a final scene with the resolution. My thought was that there would be a slow cross dissolve from the broken glass into the illustrator working vigorously on the project now with a stern and determined look on his face. He completes the piece in time to hear the knocker outside his door. He shakes the hand of the publisher, and delivers the artwork to him fade to black.
