Initially I was thinking of doing a horror/thriller production, as the starting concept is “Night, a door is ajar, light bleeds out into the street illuminating a single discarded shoe by the door.” which creates a very dark and eerie atmosphere. However, I felt I shouldn’t stick with a horror/thriller production as the brief was too generic and straightforward, so I decided to add a plot twist.
Summary of Production Idea:
The movie starts off with a tense and dark atmosphere. The opening shot is of “a single discarded shoe by the door”. It the cuts to a girl running, the reason is unknown but the atmosphere remains tense; suggesting a sinister plot such as running from a threat. Then an unknown person comes into shot running towards the girl. They greet each other with a tight, caring embrace and walk back to the house together.
