Robbie hickman's pitch

  1. 1. By Robbie Hickman SILHOUETTES
  2. 2. SYNOPSIS • Inspired by the story of the Copper Family, ‘Silhouettes’ revolves around a group of four adolescents who decide to explore a derelict structure that is apparently haunted, according to rumours. One of the adolescents captures images of the location on his camera and, whilst studying the images on his computer later on, he notices a shadow hanging or falling from the ceiling in one of them. Over an extended period of time, the teenager grows exceedingly paranoid and becomes convinced that his life is in danger. His mental state worsens until he begins hallucinating, hearing voices in his head and engaging in increasingly odd behavior. • The character does not recover from the initial shock of seeing the apparition in the picture he took. The short film concludes with the character continuing to suffer from psychosis and facing an uncertain future, therefore an ambiguous ending will be present. The ‘Problem’ within the short film is never resolved in any way.
  3. 3. CHARACTERS • Hector • The main protagonist of the film, Hector is a former bully victim who is introverted and socially awkward. He commonly expresses concern over his own future and appears depressed most of the time. The opening scene for ‘Silhouettes’ depicts him fleeing in terror from an unknown presence, which will most likely intrigue the audience as my short film will jump straight into the action. The character’s mental state worsens throughout the course of the film. • Logan • One of Hector’s friends who has a troublesome personality and is intensely irritating. He commonly expresses curiosity over almost any unusual event in his hometown and is generally not respected or trusted by his friends who often get into trouble due to his actions. Within the film, he convinces his friends to explore the location that is seemingly haunted. • Sean • Hector’s best friend. He is a highly intelligent individual, although he appears to be perturbed about his own life. He is quite apprehensive, and visiting a brooding location proves to be an issue for the character. • Trey • Trey is the younger brother of Sean. He is resented by his older brother because of his irritating personality.
  4. 4. TARGET AUDIENCE • 15-25 year old males • Aspirers • Explorers • Social Grade ABC1
  5. 5. LOCATIONS • Bishopthorpe • York Racecourse • York College
  6. 6. GENRE • ‘Silhouettes’ is a psychological horror film, therefore it will explore the increasingly unstable mental state of its protagonist as opposed to featuring supernatural elements, unlike most films released in recent times. • My short film will rely solely on the psychological and emotional status of the main character in order to evoke fear within the audience. The audience should find that they are able to relate to the character and his ordeals because common fears are explored within ‘Silhouettes’ and the darker aspects of the human psyche (which most people are likely to deny) are revealed. • The short film will contain characteristics of the subgenre of psychological horror, most notably plot twists. The film is very likely to confuse the viewers who will focus entirely on a character whose perceptions of reality are distorted by hallucinations and a severe mental disorder. • Psychological horror films tend to provide little focus on situations such as attacks by ghosts, demons etc. and instead explore the internal battles of the character(s), most of which can never be won.
