Treatment for “Let Me Hook Up With Your Brother”:
The beginning of the story takes place in the main character’s bedroom. Everything is stylish and clean.
There is a large bed and the main character is picking out what dress she wants to wear. The singer of
the band is in the background behind her. The singer is wearing reasonably normal clothes to contrast
to the main character. The camera pans in from behind her. Once she has picked her dress she moves
over to the mirror where out of focus in the mirror you can just make out the singer, there is a close up
of the main girl doing her make up. It then cuts to her leaving her house, and walking down a dark
street on the way to the gig. It then cuts to the band and the singer, they are in a room of their own and
they are playing the girls story. It then cuts to the gig. Where the band are playing on stage and the girl
can be seen going round looking at the guys and flirting. The band are on the stage, there are lots of
people about watching the music, there are lots of lights and smoke. It then cuts to another shot of just
the band playing. The girl is spotted by some older girls who have been watching her. They then follow
her home back down the same dark street and attack her. The band can be seen in the background
playing. The end shot is of the girl lying on the floor unconscious.
