Shooting script

Syrian Refugee

Picture Sound
Black screen BBC News report
Empty house, cinematic shots of items in the house that give the audience a clue to the family. For example, child toys scattered on the floor. We do not reveal any persons. Fathers Voice over
Cuts unexpectedly to slow motions sliding shots & close ups of the youngest son playing and laughter. Emphasising the child’s happiness Father starts to talk about more depressing subjects. Which will be a contrast to the images being shown.

– Also sounds of laughter

Finally, we reveal the father with his son on his lap. The father has a very serious face while his son is optimistic about the world.

Cuts to black to a photo the family took off their house back in Syria. This gives the audience an idea on how different life is. This then leads to credits.

Voice over with hope of a promising future.

One thought on “Shooting script

  1. The shooting script is a little basic for a 3 minute film. I am sure it has developed since this and hope this is going well. Set up a meeting on ADOH with me to discuss the progress and bring in any material or edits you have
