INT. SMALLISH APARTMENT - DAY
A tall and lanky SCOTT EGGLESTON (40s), sits at a cluttered countertop feverishly pecking away at his laptop. A small cell phone with a cracked screen sits next to the computer.
The phone vibrates and begins a slow creep toward the edge of the countertop. It falls and is caught in mid-air by a bony hand.
Yello! No, I'm not here. Call me back and leave a voicemail, k? I'm right in the middle of something.
The phone hits the counter with a crack. The typing resumes.
What I want to look for is a voice transcription app for Android that I can plug in to something like Trelby (mentioned in the comment before mine) to covert. Or, some kind of voice-recognition scriptwriting app. But that's just me.
And I don't want anyone to think this is disparaging the work you've done to bring people these tools in your video.
