In total I had three FMP Proposals.
In all three proposals I explain how my idea is about a group of friends going on a camping trip they come back and everyone is frozen, that no one but them is moving. It was then going to be a crossover between the group of friends trying to figure out what has happened and how they people became frozen.
The more I thought about the idea, the more I realised how I knew I wasn’t going to be able to make everyone be completely frozen as well as finding quiet locations to film. I also knew I needed quite a big cast but I don’t know that many people. I did do a fair amount of research before changing my idea slightly so it would become more practical and achievable for me.
It was initially going to be called Frozen.
In my final FMP Proposal I narrowed down more of what I wanted to showcase. At the time it was still about everyone being frozen.
Two days later is when I changed my idea, my new idea was everyone disappearing, I thought this idea was better seeing that I knew you could edit people to vanish. It still went with the theme given which is “Changed”.
I also then decided for it focus on one main character, rather then a group of friends, it meant I had to re write the narrative which I was fine with. I wrote my basic narrative so I could expand it later, I then did note down some script ideas, I did 3 just in case I wanted a slight change which in the end I did.
Throughout my research I my idea did keep changing, I was quite on edge not knowing if it was a good idea that my mind kept changing but looking at it now I am glad I had more ideas.
Overall comparing my idea that I pursued with and my final proposal they are completely different but in away there isn’t much different. I would say the only big difference is that people are disappearing instead of being frozen. I still did a Tarantino non linear style which I am pleased with, my idea of what type of music, locations and connect stayed the same. Doing research on all of that definitely helped me expand my idea more which created something I am pleased with.
I changed my title to The Disappearance.
