During our discussions we came up with two different ideas that we will try out then see which one works more effectively. One idea is to have a voice over which is coming from the boys mind. He would be telling us about the situation and how he feels about it not giving too much away about the story line. Our second idea is to do a radio report that is being heard by the boy through ear phones, telling us about an accident involving a girl being shot. The boy looking already sad, then suddenly turning the report off would give an indication that he could have been affected by it.
Idea 1: voice over.
We will have the man walking across the trainstation platform, holding a back pack, dressed in quite scruffy clothing, looking down and upset. We will have the voice over playing whilst he’s looking up at train times, and carrying on as he walks into the waiting room.
“i dont know how they expect me to deal with it all. How can someone just come along and end some ones life just like that. No blame, no reason, i cant just let it go. They dont deserve to get away with it. How is prision a good enough punishment? Its not. They dont even deserve to live.”
Idea 2: radio report.
Before the actual news report starts, we’re goin to play random, second long clips of different “news reports” all of similar context.
“In Other News, the tragic death of a young girl from Yorkshire has been found out to be the work of Billy O’donell, a thirty-two year old man from West Sussex. The girl was shot several times in a drive by shooting and died at the scene. The murder weapon was found in his one-bedroom flat on Stope Lane last night. He will appear in London Magistrates Court later on today.
