concept #1  

Girl and her clones (TITLE TBD) V1

A girl walks in an empty concrete structure. The environment is minimalistic and elegant. She eventually reaches a large room with a big table in the middle and a few chairs around it. There’s also a photographic booth by the wall. She goes in. A big flashing light creeps through the curtain.

The girl comes out and walks away. A second later another girl comes out of the booth, identical to her. We follow our heroine going through frame and exiting right. Soon after, the same frame is crossed by the same girl in the opposite direction. Another girl, always identical to the first, goes back in the booth. More flashes. 4 identical girls come out of the booth in quick succession. More random scenes of the same girl getting comfortable in different parts of the room. Wide shot of the room. A dozen identical girls are comfortably hanging around, some on the chairs, some half lying on the table, some standing.

Camera tracks back to reveal the image inside a mobile phone. The girl is in the same location and dressed like the clones. She is playing with an augmented reality app. She’s actually alone in the space.

 

Girl and her clones (TITLE TBD) V2

Ending 2:

Black

A girl is sitting in large room with a big empty table in the middle and a few chairs around it. There’s also a photographic booth by the wall. A big flashing light creeps through the curtain. The girl we’ve just seen sat in the room comes out and walks away. A second later another girl comes out of the booth, identical to her. We follow our heroine going through frame and exiting right. Soon after, the same frame is crossed by the same girl in the opposite direction. Another girl, always identical to the first, goes back in the booth. More flashes. 4 identical girls come out of the booth in quick succession. More random scenes of the same girl getting comfortable in different parts of the room.

Wide shot of the room. A dozen identical girls are comfortably hanging around, some on the chairs, some half lying on the table, some standing.

In the background, more flashes come from the booth. We cut to the girl in a her own house/bedroom. She’s taking selfies. Every time she clicks, a new girl comes out of the booth in a parallel dimension.

concept #2

Girl in the water (TITLE TBD)

 

Black. Hectic city noises, traffic, voices, phone calls. 

Cut to a close-up of a girl in water (bathtub). She is alone in the bathroom, the sound is still present like she is in the busiest street in the city. 

She goes under. Sounds muffles.. 

Cut to the girl in a natural landscape. Only nature sounds. She is relaxed in this idyllic place. Her eyes closed. She suddenly takes in a deep breath.

Cut back to the bathtub as she comes up to breath. As she emerges the overwhelming city sounds creep back in and full volume.

She recovers, inhales deeply and goes back under. Quite again. Back in the natural landscape.

She repeats it a couple of times. 

Back in the bathtub. She looks straight into the camera as she takes a deep breath before going under again.

Black .

concept #3

Girl and the Butterflies.

A girl is sitting in a soft-coloured room, the only forniture are a designer table and chairs and a marble statue bust. Soft light radiates from the window. Outside concrete buildings stand against in the grey sky.

She gets up and to get a wooden box. She opens it to find and old analogue radio. As she turns it on, a low frequency can be heard. She turns the volume up and begins to turn the nob to search for different stations. She lands on a frequency that she likes and she can be seen visibly shook by it. Her pupils contracts, her lips open slightly. She turns and looks at the statue. A colourful butterfly is on it. she blinks in disbelief and when she opens her eyes again the butterfly is not there. She turns the nob again. A higher frequency catches her attention. Again, she can be seen suddenly shaken by the sound. She looks up again at the statue and this time she can see a bunch of butterflies flapping gently around it. She is amused. She turns the nob and the volume up. She is taken violently by this new frequency. The light all around her seem to be moving and changing both in color and shape. The room is now full of butterflies, all around her. She looks up in awe.

 

The frequency suddenly stops. Wide shot. She is sitting with her eyes closed in the empty room.

thank you.
