I narrowed ideas down to 4. I won't list the other ones here, because maybe I'll use them and they're only bare bones.
I mentioned in my last post that I was working in a juvenile prison whilst brainstorming ideas. You would forgive me for the cross over.
Strangely though, years ago I had written the outline of a short film about two brother escaping from juvenile. This time, though I decided it would be two girls. And they would escape for a single day. And we would get to see the world through their eyes.
I have since decided that it will be one girl. And she is escaping for a very clear reason - she is pregnant and she needs to find her boyfriend to work out what to do.
I have an ending, but I don't want to give it away.
I had four ideas that I was tossing up, at the end of January and the only way I could choose was by feeling which moved me the most, and when I was writing about this girl I started crying, so that was enough impetus to commit.
The brainstorming process was difficult but I managed to keep the pressure off. The narrowing down process was also difficult, but I have decided not to stew in indecision around ideas for too long.
And so it is decided, this will be a film about love and escape.
