Initial Ideas

Initial Idea 1

  • Influences: Recent success of Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project
  • Plot (for opening): Young artist/film maker explores the location with a camera. A figure can be seen in the corner, curled in a ball, rocking forwards and  backwards. Protagonist tries to communicate, but lack of response causes them to back away. As they turn to get out, a sillhouette can be seen blocking the doorway. This immediately cuts to the title, possibly with a scream effect. This sets up for the plot of the rest of the film where a group find the camera and footage and try to track this villain down
  • Location: Abandoned changing room in middle of forest (as seen below in stills taken at night of location

Initial Idea 2
  • Possible Title: Bugged
  • Themes: Stalking, tracking, obsession, voyeurism
  • Plot (for opening): Woman walking around house, seen through the view of various cams (fridge cam, door cam, tv cam etc.) A 'voice over' is heard following her movements, muttering, breathing. She then goes into a room, and her boyfriend is seen on a computer, and his voice is recognised as the one tracking/stalking her movment
