Short Film concept (June 2012)
Straight from when the specification for this project was given i already had a vague idea of what kind of film i wanted to make, i learnt a number of important lessons about the film-making process through the mistakes i made last year, and overall i would say i have taken a very conservative approach to this task in comparison with that of a past project when i had a huge lack of experience. i have not yet gone into specifics in regards to dialogue or other detailed aspects of the film as those have to be deliberated with my project partner, however i do know what genre and story arch i want the film to follow. In this film we essentialy follow the daily and strange routine of a teenager who suffers from OCD(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), a disease which manifests itself in a number of unusual and shocking ways. My goal is to show some sort of insight into the life of an individual with a real condition that can not only evoke sympathy and fear from the viewer, but also be truly absorbing. Through my research of this topic I have come up with many possible sequences to take place in this film - the majority of which will be in story-board format initially.
