Pitch 1

  1. 1. My Film IdeaMedia 2009<br />Chris Burke<br />
  2. 2. Genre<br />The genre that I have decided to do the coursework task on is a drama,<br />this will appeal to wide audiencerange. <br />
  3. 3. History<br />Drama’s have been immensely popular for years, but just not always on the television. Some of the first drama’s included those of Shakespeare’s, such as Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet. These were performed by actors in front of a live audience in a theatre. <br />
  4. 4. Conventions Of A Drama<br />
  5. 5. Plot Outline<br /> It is still early stages in the planning of how the short film will all be put together, but basically I have decided to do the short film about a teenager that has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. They have been told they only have a certain amount of time to live. I plan for my short film to go through the various emotions of this, and the soundtrack will have a large influence in showing the emotion. After they have been diagnosed, they decide that they want to do something to be remembered by, something unique, a target to aim for, allowing them believe that this will allow them to live for longer. Based on other films of this sort, it is clear that it is very important to set the tone for the film right at the beginning, and carry through the emotion right till the end. <br />
  6. 6. A Similar Film<br /> Through research, I managed to find another film of a similar nature, which is called ‘The Bucket List’, starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. In this film they are both diagnosed with cancer and given six months to live, and then are put on the same hospital ward, one is rich and together they compile a list of things to do before they die, they then follow through with these tasks that they have wrote down, and this list is called the ‘bucket list’. <br />
