The Group

The Snicket (My Idea): 
This is my pitch that I did infront of my class and it was about my coursework idea

The Groundsman (Group Idea):
  1. A man is seeking a groundsman job in the newspaper.
  2. He throws the paper on a and circles the job description in red.
  3. He then rips out the page in the newspaper with the address of the house advertising a job (circled in red).
  4. He travels to the rural house by car to find the people advertising the job 
  5. The screen fades to a girl on her phone talking to her boyfriend 
  6. She says "I've got a free house all weekend, come round later".
  7. Suddenly the door knocks
  8. The girl then says to her boyfriend "I'll call you back later".
  9. She then goes to answer the door
  10. The girl invites the man inside and says "You might want to take a seat my dads on his way...he said he will be five minutes"
  11. The man sits down in the lounge and the girl asks if he wants a drink. 
  12. She goes off into the kitchen to get the weapon
  13. The man then shouts "What's taking you so long?" to which the girl replies "Just give me a minute".
  14. This is because the girl is looking through the draws to find the weapon.
  15. She returns to the room (Over the shoulder shot)
  16. POV shot of the man watching the TV when suddenly a knife comes from behind him (in his periferal vision)
  17. The screen fades like he is passing out to end the opening.

Here are the 'Initial Storyboards' for our coursework idea

Here is some 'Sample Footage' of our coursework idea. We wanted to test some shots to see if they worked and to look for any other shots that looked better. As this was only a practice we did not have our proper actors or any costumes. 


Click on the picture below for some feedback on our sample footage and with this feedback we will make some changes that are relevant to what people have said 


    1. you've developed this idea substantially since this post, so add a new post to set this out!!!

    2. detail specifically the changes!!!
