Chris Waddington Short Film ProposalFor my Final major project I am going to create a short film based on the popular game series‘Fallout 3’. It is a post apocalyptic war film which follows one of the last surviving men through oneof his days on earth and what he has to do to survive in the wasteland.The main character, Sam, wakes up in the wasteland after a dream of his past and his old girlfriendbefore the great war. After waking up and realising where he is, he starts of his day as he alwaysdoes, by packing up all his belongings, loading his gun and moving out. Throughout the smalljourney shown in the film, Sam travels through the wasteland in search of water, food and shelter.Other survivors, of the less friendly kind, have other ideas of course.Throughout his journey across the wasteland the main thing that is on Sam’s mind is his girlfriendwho he has not seen since the beginning of the war, and isn’t sure if she is still alive or not. He hasregular flashbacks of the past and this pushes him close to the edge throughout the film.Whether or not Sam will be able to survive much longer in the wastes is debateable. Will the lack offood, water and mental stability taking its toll, Sam wonders through with no real aim apart from tosurvive.
