Since my last post, my group and I have decide we wanted to go down the idea of a flash back themed short film, so individually we went onto making our own story lines and what we individually liked.
I have been thinking about this, and I have an idea for which to do a romance genre for the flashback idea. This could be with a man looking back on his memories through his life and then there could be a plot twist to throw off the audience. We would probably have a boy and girl in love, as well as other memories which this man would have. Throughout the shot film the audience would believe that the girl would be dying/dead, but then we would have have a zoom in on the man’s face as he closes his eyes then zoom out and he would be in a hospital bed, with the love interest weeping beside him, while his ‘soul’ stands over the body and the lover.
The message within this piece would be memories, involving the idea that we (the audience) should cherish our memories and those within them.
I will be doing more research into the idea of memories and flashback, looking more into the genre we want to progress into and and then do feedback to my group and see what they think of my idea.
