    Gallery One, London.

    C/U shot of non-representational painting. Painting moves down to reveal an artist at work. He is kneeling over new canvas laid on the floor. He pours white paint on the canvas and starts spreading it with brush. M/S of the artist working. Several paintings are hanging on the wall behind him.

    Italian artist Enrico Baj (Bye) is demonstrating his new technique - interplanetary painting in Gallery One in London, where his work is exhibited. He is creating painting called "Mountain of D'Arblay Street", a portrait of the gallery director. Enrico Baj is a well known artist. He has studies at the famous Brere Academy, his work is exhibited around the world and he fights against 'conventional abstract art' by inventing new techniques. He pioneered 'nuclear movement' and now is advocating 'interplanetary painting'.

    High angle shot of white paint being spread across the canvas. C/U shot of the artist's face as he works. C/U shot of paper-made face placed over the white paint. M/S of two women looking at Mr Baj's paintings. Great work! Cut back to high angle shot of Mr Baj removing the paper from his painting to reveal face on canvas. There is a lot of black paint added on. Mr Baj then, takes a brush and highlights a mouth, eyes and nose - fantastic!

    M/S of the two women looking at Mr Baj's paintings. Women have great hairstyles and make-up. C/U shot of their faces as they comment on paintings. C/U shot of one of the paintings. It is a woman's face. Her eyes, nose, mouth and neckless are made of crystals. Modern art.

    Note: Cuts (rushes, out-takes) exist for this story. There are on the Pathe Master tape *PM0089*.
