EXP Treatment

Post by Shea on Thu Feb 26 2009, 17:48

This is just what I wrote for the professor to see. Parts of it don't apply at all to the crew.

Experimental Film Treatment
Interrogation
This film, which will require some degree of a narrative story structure, will attempt to display a non-conventional interrogation sequence. To explain more in depth, the structure and some of the dialogue will be fairly similar to the stereotypical Hollywood interrogation/questioning sequence. The main character has committed some crime which is not known to the audience, and the character speaks very little of his actions. The main interrogator (striped shirt, tie, holster, and aviator glasses clad) will draw more from a 70s style cop (acting with reckless abandon for the law, fairly nihilistic, etc). The interrogation sequence will involve no physical altercations, but rather a movie sequence. The main character will be subject to a small film which will contain subliminal and psychologically terrifying images and sounds (essentially a montage). This is where most of the experimentation of the film will be exhibited, in editing and visual symbolism/iconography. At this time, I have yet to decide what conclusion will be drawn after the film is shown to the main character, but many opportunities exist for either closed or open ended climaxes to the film. The other area of experimentation I will try to focus on is POV from both characters, inanimate objects, and even the film itself. I will also try to make use of POV off of reflected objects (the film on the main character’s iris’ and the main character in the interrogator’s glasses). I may also consider fairly natural lighting during the first half of the film, and low key lighting during the showing of the film to the main character. Overall, there is a fairly narrative structure to this piece, but the main factor classifying it as an experimental film is focus on things I have yet to do on a personal level in video production/editing.
I have the actors lined up, and may do some voice-over work myself, and should only need two other crew members for lighting and audio purposes. I will use my own camera, and shouldn’t need anything beyond a tripod for equipment. The setting will be almost exclusively indoors, and in a fairly small room. Natural lighting should suffice, but if it doesn’t, I will probably need to sign out a lighting kit. I may also consider applying a visual filter for the film, to give it a sort of dream-like feel. Or, I may do this solely for POV shots for the main character to insinuate that he has been drugged/beaten into a dazed state by his captors.




Ever see Clockwork Orange? Think that, but not as dystopian. The film that will essentially make the victim "crack" is where we can do pretty much anything. I will be looking for short, 5-10 second shots for that bit of the film [it will essentially be a montage, but a Soviet one (hard to explain)].

If anybody would like to help, I'd appreciate it. Shooting will still be fairly casual, but I do want to actually put some serious effort into this one.

oh dear god, cancer...but i had actually had some cigarette stuff in mind...but only for characters cast for those who smoke in RL.

I'd have some serious ethical concerns with making people smoke. lol

probably the first weekend of break (7th and 8th) and then during the week as needed, which will probably require driving out to annville
