Kaya & Sanel Idea Development H Previously our idea for our whole film was a woman who was possessed was taking hostage innocent victims and exorcising them for her cult. What Went Well? • Creative • Interesting • Scary Even Better If? • Less complicated • Chose to focus on either hostage or possession – not both • Too fully understand and research possession Previously our opening sequence was showing a tape filmed by the possessed woman on the news talking about her cult and exorcising a victim she has held hostage. What Went Well? • Good idea • Creative layout Even Better If? • Change the news idea • Change location to somewhere more flexible
Kaya & Sanel Idea Development H We are improving our opening sequence from our last one completely changing our idea to a new one. We changed our genre to drama which is based on drugs, quite a realistic things to certain teenagers. We fully researched and revised drugs so we improve our understanding and knowledge making sure we make an effective opening sequence and therefore to…• Relate to our audience so they can see our opening sequence as real life• Show an educational message of how drugs are bad for you• Making it more interesting for our target audience to what they prefer• Make it less complicated but still as captivating• More understandable, as our target audience are young teenagers/adults How are we contributing? Kaya and Sanel are contributing by meeting up on the Holidays to fully research and carefully think thought out new idea making sure everything links and can educate our target audience. We explored different effects of LSD in depth to make it as realistic as possible to relate to real peoples lives
Kaya & Sanel Whole Film H (Laura’s life from the beginning) • Her friends introduce her to the drugs, she likes it and carries on taking it • Laura takes it daily gets addicted, party’s, stops going school – messes her life up • She steals, does prostitution to try and get money for LSD • Her and her friends get into a big fright over money for the drug and she becomes lonely and depressed • She keeps self harming, taking he drug and ends up getting so intoxicated she doesnt know what shes doing and just goes to the forest while hallucinating • He has heart failure and dies alone
Kaya & Sanel Opening Sequence H • We follow Laura walking out of her home (on the way to the forest) and cut from different shots of her journey • Throughout the journey we see short flash backs • We then show CCTV of her walking into the park/forest gates • Point of view of what she can see and hear (hallucinating) which cuts from real life and her point of view • Laura stops quickly holds her chest and falls to the ground breathing slowly • Front her point of view we see characters dance together
Kaya & Sanel Idea Development H How the idea was improved from Draft 1 to Draft 2 • We took out mental illness schizophrenia being the reason she thought she was possessed, and changed the woman to actually being possessed by demons who wanted to let the world know about her cult scaring the world so the demons can possess them too from watching the video • Doing deeper research of the reasons of possession being that demons can be released into the real world and why the certain people get possessed because they’re venerable. • We also changed the location to somewhere more flexible as the other one location, we wouldn’t have been able to move things around, the light thing was poor and the room was too small. Therefore changing to one of our group members basement as it is spacious and reliable.
