Done by: Milka IDEA DEVELOPMENT In our first group meeting we: Put all our ideas together Come out with the main idea. Made some changes according to our different opinions It wasnt too difficult because we all had very similar ideas of what we wanted our opening sequence to be about.
Done by:Debbie IDEA – WHOLE FILM Teenage couple „fall in love‟ and start going out Parents accept him but always find something strange about him but don‟t know what. Until one day the couple have a big argument about the lack of affection he gives her He sends her an email saying „the love‟ he thought he felt for her has no logic and wants to break up. (teenage love) After 2 months he has the courage to admit to her that he broke up because he knew her parents would never accept him and would always think he was not good for her.
Done by:Debbie IDEA- OPENING SEQUENCE Girl on computer ( Facebook) looking at pictures of them two. Girlfriend sees pictures of them two when happy and has flashback. (happy) Goes back on Facebook sees picture of boyfriend with parents and has flashback (conflict) Back to reality and gets text saying to check her email Long email and ends with the words „Im sorry‟
Done by:Debbie IDEA DEVELOPMENT At first we did not have any ideas for what our moral message was going to be therefore made things harder. However now we have a very clear idea of what message we want to send out. Moral message : love is not love if it is not shown. We only realise what we have after we loose it.
Done by: MariaENIGMA We are going to create enigma by not showing who was the one who has been run over. By both of them leaving the house we are left curious as to which one of them has been run over.

Done by: Milka NARRATIVE USED We will be using: non-linear narrative = film shown in exact same order as happened events. some scenes will be in chronological order Make it clearer to the audience so don‟t get confused with order of events. order of these specific events need to be very clear as they are the key of our film. o linear narrative = mostly made of flashbacks as you may see the event first and then go onto the explanation. Creates enigma Divided into three sections setup, conflict, resolution
