What’s interesting about this scene aside from the story? Dino falling from the tree. So exactly how does that happen? Dino cuts the branch, the huge elbow shaped one with a split at the base.
Maybe the scene should start with the accident. They’re cutting the tree down, not just the branch – cutting the tree down is probably better than removing a branch.
How about Dino, who has climbed half-way up the trunk, cuts the V or wedge shape into the side of the tree, the side facing away from the house. Kidd says it will fall away from the house, even though the giant elbow shaped branch is hanging over the roof. To Dino’s suprise the tree starts falling in the right direction, but it also twists. The elbow of the branch comes right for him. It knocks him off the tree, breaking his harness.
Dino’s agility helps him: flying with the elbow, he frantically flails his limbs — No, he’s super agile: in mid-air he climbs around the elbow, and with a half-climb-half-jump he manages to get up to the canopy...okay I’ll work on that part, but something super cool that lands him in the canopy as the tree crashes. He lands okay accept he gets his wrist pretty bad.
