• A romantic drama. LOBSTER • The film looks like it is taking itselfStyle seriously, therefore it is the content that creates an element of comedy. • Will include soft lighting, montages of romantic scenes, emotional close ups to show love and passion and a very linear narrative to show development of feelings. • Slightly surreal… because the lobster is treated like a human throughout the film
LOBSTERTone and • Romantic Theme • Dramatic • Pretense of seriousness • It is a reflection of modern day love and the difficulties couples have to overcome. • Love comes in all forms and no one should be judged on how they feel for another. • Furthermore it portrays that not all love is forever and that in real life, there is not always a happy ending.
• For people sick of the LOBSTERAudience average and over used rom com conventions. • We aim to make it relatable to women, and so women above the ages of 20 will be the main target audience.
ProblemsThe main problem would be the puppetry/animation of the lobster. We would considereither buying a lobster puppet or making oneourselves.http://www.bioniclobster.com/videos/Alternatively we could us clay or drawnanimation to show the lobster.
