BRIEF 2.

MICA. For my final major project I have chosen to develop an initial idea I had thought of last year which I never followed through with. During my period at university I feel as if I have grown into a confident film maker which i why I have chosen to stick to a short film narrtive rather than an exprimental film or documentary. “Mica” initially developed as an idea from watching the E4 drama series Misfits as well as everyday life, living in East London. This shortfilm will reflect everyday life situations some people go through. Growing up in Bow, East London a lot of teenagers choose to leave home and go to hostiles and most of the time we don’t know what the actual problem or reason is. Why do some teenagers leave home to move into a boxroom? Most of the time we assume it’s due to the fact these teenagers want to feel more independent and so on and so forth. Although this may be true I’m pretty certain there are other reasons as to why people do this and this is what “Mica” is about. A young girl who’s mother died when she was only 16. Her father couldn’t deal with the death so ended up becoming an alcoholic. i want to take the audience on a journey through “Mica’s world” and how us as people are too absorbed in our own life and really judgemental.
