story pitch

The story pitch is longer than the teaser pitch its more of like a run through of the teaser pitch. It should have a logline that hooks the audience and should contain the fundamental and universal elements that the producer requires.

Story PITCH-Promise Me

The Hero's: Jeremiah Baily. Sinita Wolfe

Objective: To find and rescue his sister and fulfil his promise

Conflict: He may have to resort to extreme violence and crime. His dark past may have a turning point on the hero's future events.There is a possiblity that he might not fulfill that promise and may have to overcome challenges to prove that.

Risks: Resorting to get his hands dirty to find the girl, also risking his own life in the process. Things will go alot deeper than he expected as they may be consquences for his own actions. And his arrogance and stubborness with his ultimate downfall.

Emotional turning point: While finding his missing sister who was kidnapped seven years earlier, he also finds the love of his life.

Pivotal events: Also his dark past coming back to haunt him a bit, having to face up to the Albanian rivals again.

Conclusion: The promise is fullfiled to his sister in her times of trouble and he also finds out other information concerning his sister kidnapping.

Thoughts for A2


Working in a group

In the previous AS cycle, i was not impressed with the group that i was grouped with. We barely had any communication skills, ideas where put aside to selfishness. Ideas were not listened to or, behind members back, also we were unorginazed and missed deadlines.

The new group, will hopefully, will be mature, sensible, open minded and considerate towards the views, ideas, and other people's opinions and,the main point: also everyone in the group will contribute and will have strong level of communication. I do not want to be in a group that does not know what roles they are doing, who are unorganized, going, been, or coming. Also i do not want to be in a group that finds other people's misfortunates funny, or blame each other due to not taking responblities for thier actions. I also need a group who gets along with each other and also will learn and not come to lesson to waste time.

Teaser pitch

Me and the group have decided to create a tease pitch for the teaser trailer and to add onto the story pitch. A teaser pitch consists of 2 mins of screenplay similar to a normal trailer. The layout of the script has the characters givien specfic roles and lines to hook the agents or the executive and getting the audience involved. Within your script you need to add everything into the trailer including the genre, background of the storyline and the scope of the film.

Teaser pitch:

Film title:Promise me
Genre: Action Thriller
Time Period: Modern Day
Location: London. Suburbs
Budget Medium-Low
Target Audience:16+ and over

Promise me

Early hours of the morning in london. Jeremiah Bailey receives a call from teen Kate Hamilen. He promised that she will help her sister at any costs. The same morning of her disapperance, never to be seen again. Feeling guilt, he will use everything in his power to find her by any means necessary.

thoughts on the film idea

I enjoyed various parts of the idea including the extra idea of adding maybe a few more characters into the film which will clash with the current storyline. Another main idea that the group is mainly enjoyed is sharing real life / reality experiences and convert them into one big storyline which certainly suits the taste of people our age range. The idea of the Crime thriller genre was mostly another experience we picked up from watching various films and adapting into everyday life issues. The idea and processing of the kidnapping and the hero past tends to bring something new and refreshing into the film scene.

Plot of the sequence

The plot called Promise me is mainly because its consists of a young man at any means necessary to protect her loved one the sister( Kate Hamilon) who is one of the main characters and the sister of the main antagonist( Jeremiah Baily). Also the plot has alot of twist and turns involving the character including whereabouts and links with the progtanist of the plot (Albanian gang), also there involvement in the kidnapping of the hero's sister.

Also within the plot they will also be other characters links involved which will help the antagonist in is attempt to find out the incidents which lead to the kidnapping of his sister.

Pivotal Events: The antagonist ( Jeremiah Baily)  uncovers and leads to the prolonged capture of an infamous vicious Albanian Slaver Ring Leader.

Why is fighting to save her life: Its the turning point of his character from overcoming his dark past which leads to alot suspicion to the Jeremiah Baily and to try forget and flip over to this dark life and follow a good path by doing he of course has to find out who kidnapped his sister.

Anything new for the audience: Yes it is something because it finally gives us a chance to portray a hero and exploiting his darker side of his character by giving him a treachourous past. And by this it gives the audience a chance to actually to see a side of a hero that has never been witnessed or could be expected.

Characters: Jeremiah Baily,Sinita Wolfe

Crime thriller- Reasons the genre was chosen

I got the idea of giving the Hero a treachrous past like e.g a life of crime went to prison and came out and decided to change his life. Also the samitaran was a good trailer since it involved a collobaration between the hero's past conflict and how it effects him in the present day. Also giving the hero back his previous connections and his past following him throughout most of the story and the kidnapping of his sister.  Also choosing a crime thriller is what the group decided since it will be gory and alot violence and gory scenes will be involved but we decided it shouldn't be just a crime thriller and add maybe some comedy into it so it has a combination of seriousness and a little laughter involved.

ideas for inspiration / other movies

The idea and inspiration came from the movie Raising Arizona which gave me thoughts and ideas and how ideas from other members of the group would collabarate into one film sequence that we both choose. Also inspiration from the raising arizona has gave us another idea that we should combine the genre of crime with comedy kidnapping in a way theres a mixture of not one but another genre added onto the film which would interest the viewers alot.  I had another look at a particualr movie which inspired me was the Naked weapon which also kidnapping it mostly about two chinese girls who were kidnapped and mostly trained to be assasins in a concentration camp.

summary- starter of the ideas

The ideas of the film also consists of other world infleucnes which include  previous and current kidnaping of Madeline McCann. Also since its a crime thriller we specifically know the hero's sister or how old she is , since they arent any links towards the kidnapping but in this genre and sequence our group is doing is that  the hero has  links and other characters who he can relate to in the film sequence. These images are mostly small ideas we picked off different world experiences. It gives the audience a brief preview of the film and the main objective of the antagonist to save his sister and do what he can this including revealing the heroes treachorous past and horrific life before meeting the love of his life.
