From my research, I collected ideas of what I want my films storyline to be and include. I wanted to show it effects everyone, so I’ve decided to surround my film around a family. I want them to be as ‘normal’ and relatable as possible. This is because I want the audience to emphasise with the characters more. I want the family to made up of a mum, a dad, a older daughter and a younger son. With this in mind, I started noting down some ideas that I could put into my film.
In this mind map I thought of ideas for the opening of the film; the clips that are in the UK; the traveling; the arriving in the other country and the credits/titles. I also made a section for the important things I need to remember. I think a challenge with this film is going to be fitting all the story in within 2 minuets. I’m going to do the minimum clips as possible or really short clips.
I took out my favourite parts of the idea generation and decided to make a rough concept idea. In my film I want to make it up of extracts from the real life stories I researched. This was important to me because I want to make it close to the truth. I did 2 concept plans: one of a film time line and one that was in more detail.
Having this rough idea means I can develop it over the next week to simplify and plan it more. I think that I will need to simplify my concept as I only have 2 minuets.
