Progress plan Who are you? I am an a-‐level student studying media studies. I’m going to be creating a trailer for a movie around the genre of Gritty British realism. The big Idea. The big idea for my trailer is about a girl who thinks she’s falling in love with a footballer; she thinks she has everything she’s always wanted, she cant tell her parents because she’s scared what they will say, they want her to think about school not boys. The girls she always talks to thinks its all to good to be real. They think something is wrong with this boy but they just don’t know what. They try telling her this but she won’t listen, she’s in love and she’s happy she doesn’t want anyone to change this. Her parents find out about her relationship with this guy at dinner, her phone rings and she picks up. Her mum takes the phone and that’s when thinks start changing, her mum doesn’t agree with the idea and this starts arguments. She lies to her mum and tells her that she’s going to her friends house, but after the phone call at dinner her mum doesn’t believe her so a while after leaving she rings the friends house but she isn’t this makes her mum even more mad. The next day at school when chatting to her mates in lesson the friend tells her that she got called by her mum, she gets angry and marches.
Everything changes between the two of them, because of one phone call, one that wasn’t meant to happen. She thinks his on the phone to his mum; she thinks everything’s all right. Until she hears her boyfriend, doing a drug deal. This changes everything she doesn’t know what to do, if she should tell him, or act like nothings happened. She confronts him, but she loves him too much to leave him, she bunks school the next day and stays with him, he shows her the roads and she gets into it. She feels like she’s now apart of his world. She lets everything go. She completely forgets about school and her friends she loves being with him. Her mum keeps getting phone calls from school saying she hasn’t been turning up, her mums had enough she warns her. It carries on so she kicks her out. She don’t care anymore, the drugs and the boy have got to her, she thinks she doesn’t need anyone else she has him, she thinks this life is perfect for her. Until one day she finds out his in trouble with another drug dealer, they get her number and start ringing her telling warning her, telling her to watch her back. They cant get her boyfriend so they will get the closest thing to him, there going to hurt her. She has no one to go to, no one can help her because she pushed everyone out her life for one boy. She doesn’t want to tell him she’s scared, she avoids doing drug deals she try’s to stay away stay out of trouble. It happens. She bumps into the boys that have been looking for her, she’s scared worried. No ones around. They stab her, she screams they wont stop. She falls to the ground. They start kicking her. She’s slowly dying she has no one to help her.
The house phone rings. The girl’s mum gets the call, she has been found and has been rushed to hospital. Will she make it? Or is this the end of her life, is it to late for her to get her life back on track. The name of my film is ‘I told you so’. How will you include shot reverse shot, 180-‐degree rule of thirds? When filming I’m going to use shot reverse shot a couple times, one of the main times will be when the mum and her are arguing about the fact that she’s been bunking of school to see a boy. Where will you film, who will you cast? Props, costumes needed? My film will be shot in a couple of places, they will be at Lilian Baylis Technology School, another place that will need to be used is my house, and the estate I live in. I’m going to need to use people from my family in my clips also I’m going to be using students from the school to help, by casting in my clips. When will you film by? The film in going to be filmed and edited over a four-‐week period. The trailer will be filmed and edited by the 15th April 2013.
