Project Proposal Title:
Section One: Rationale
Out of all of these there are only 2 I didn’t enjoy, the intro scene and the corporate video. These projects where next to each other and at a time where I was generally stressed, this coupled with problems on the projects made me not have the best thoughts of them. The other 3 where much better, The drama project really showed me how it is to work with actors compared to using my friend. The media investigation gave me a good grasp of how to improve my research and TV studio showed me what its like working with a bigger group. Over the year I haven’t had any huge inspiration this year for my Fmp, I had a couple of ideas of the year so I just picked one of these. I will be taking in what I’ve learnt from the year into my Fmp.
Section Two: Project Concept
I aim to make a short film based on the dark possibility of future technology. I want to explore the possibility of body modifications thought the use of cybernetics and what would happen when if there were hacked. The story would be based around a man with such cybernetics. He will be using them for something shunned or shameful (such as a crime or things along these lines). This is when his problems start. At this point he will start seeing things, messages telling him to do things. It will build over the course of the film and so will the punishments for not doing. Because of his own crimes he can’t go to the police or some other authority and has to deal with it on his own.
Section Three: Evaluation
I will be getting evaluated at different assessment dates by members of my class, this will insure that the work is there and I will be able to compare it to theirs insuring it is up to standards. I will also make sure I am following my production schedule, keeping to this will insure I have good time management. Lastly I will be keeping a weekly log of the work I am doing so when it comes to the end I will easily be able to look back and make a proper evaluation of the project.
