PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
EXTRAS WANTED- A brief synopsis of this short film would be that we are making a musical comedy based on a female heroine. The Character is using a skill she gained as a child (pillow fighting) to fight petty crime in her late teenage years. Concluding the film is a fight at the end with her old best friend, who was not as good in that activity as she was, so she took what seems to be serious measures to get revenge however they resolve their issues as pillow girl and waterbomb girl become friends again. Pillow Girl will be a musical comedy in the format of moving image at no more than 10 minutes long. The whole piece will be sung in one long succession like in the Musical Episode of Buffy. The piece will be colourful and fun which will be contrasted with dark humour throughout the film. The overall aim of this piece is to show the way an activity undertaken as a child could affect them psychologically in the future. For example, a Barbie doll played with so innocently as a child could have an effect on the way that child perceives his/her own beauty values as an adult, or how a fall from a moving bicycle, could hinder the child from undertaking an interest in this particular activity for the rest of their life. We plan to show this psychological switch throughout the musical using a time hop from the characters being children to young adults/ teenagers, so that we can make the audience see a drastic change in how the characters see the activities they took part in as a child. As well as whether or not the skills gained from these activities could be seen as useful for them. Finally we also want to make this musical as fun as possible for the audience in order to give the feel that they all still have a part of their childhood with them throughout the entirety of the adult lives they lead now. The Age we are aiming this piece at is 12+ as we think this film will be amusing to watch not only for adults who look for nostalgia in films like this one, but young teenagers as well since it will be a colourful comedy guaranteed to make them smile. The reason for the age range being 12 and above and no lower will be due to the violence we intend to show in the musical, while it isn’t extreme violence we do believe that on an ethical level it would be better to keep the age range at a young teenager level.
