360MC/361MC 11/10/12 Workshop – Pitches 360MC
Today we were able to pitch to the rest our our group, though as there were so many of us, instead of pitching all three we just pitched our best or favourite one.
I decided to pitch my idea that I had chosen, as this is the one I have most vision for and can see coming together really well.
- A short film where in a mind is completely lost, and a life defying decision is made.
- The film will be different in the sense that it will be based on a true story, and address serious issues that people deal with a lot more than we think. It will show the thoughts and actions of someone on the road to mental instability and how drastic their actions then become once mentally unstable. As this is a drama I think it allows for a wide audience and will capture them with a heart breaking and compelling true story.
- Possibly filmed in the style of the film the ‘Arbour’ and possibly a cycle narrative.
After hearing everyone else pitch and share their ideas, for some reason I was unsure about mine as I have a problem sometimes in believing in myself, work and my ideas but this is why we do things like this, maybe not to boost your confidence as such but to give you some constructive criticism good or bad so that you can go away and improve.
I got some really good feedback and everyone really liked the idea, more so the fact that it’s based on a true story than anything, but I was told to make sure that so long as the true story has a story to it base it entirely on that but if it doesn’t always choose story over truth. Meaning I can base it on the true story but if it doesn’t tell enough of a story I shouldn’t be afraid to twist and tweak it so that it’s only based loosely on the true story.
I also got a good research tip as I was told it is mental health week this week so I will be looking into that and carrying out further research.
