Overview of Follower Follower, is a film about a 23 year old named Sam Addison who fell into a disaster. He had an addiction to drugs and alcohol which destroyed everything in his life that was worth living for, in particular his girlfriend, Laurie Young. She despised him for what he had become; with police knocking constantly accusing the family of drug dealing, him being in and out of prison, it’s something Laurie wanted no longer. He become worse and worse, leading into mental illnesses such as depression and schizophrenia – followed by him stalking Laurie, him thinking someone else was, shows his obsession with her. Stealing her possessions and tracking her every move by social networks and apps, this modern day mystery thriller will keep you all at the edge of your seats from the intro throughout.
Synopsis Our opening title sequence is going to be mostly conceptual with some characterization of the films antagonist, as inspired by ‘se7en’. There will be lots of close ups for the conceptual theme. The close ups will show his obsession with his Ex-girlfriend, Laurie. It will be made clear that he is stalking her by using these shots. The shots will be of scratched out photos, a map with previous locations, social network pages. We will be using flashbacks to show his relationship in the past but faces will be kept hidden to heighten the mystery aspect.
Treatment We’ve decided on the name of “Follower”. This gives us an idea of what the film is about which is a man who starts stalking his ex-girlfriend. Act 1 - Sam and Laurie are in a good relationship, but Sam’s decent into drug use and dealing becomes too much for Laurie to handle. Act 2 – Sam becomes obsessed with Laurie and starts constantly looking through her Facebook/Instagram/twitter and discovers that she’s being stalked. In order to save her he starts following her and becomes infatuated with her every move. Act 3 – Because of Sam’s constant drug use we find out that Laurie’s stalker was Sam. When he’s following her home one night she finally turns around and screams at him to stop. He then goes home and starts thinking about the fact that it’s been him causing her so much upset and kills himself.
Costumes and Props For the beginning of the opening title sequence, Sam, will be wearing a black tracksuit with a black hoodie. As we have set our idea on not showing the waist up part of the characters, we can only see that his hands are very unclean (to do this, get some wet mud or something along the same lines). When he is having flash backs of his past, he will be wearing colourful clothing. His clothes will also identify his age, therefore, because he is in his late teens, early 20s, his clothing will be up to date in modern day. The same for the throwback of the ex – girl friend partner, she is of a similar age, so trendiness, however very individual as she quirks it up in style of herself.
Characterisation Sam Addison Our main character is a young boy in his late teens, early twenties named Sam Addison which will be hard for the viewer to identify other than the suggestion of the clothes. Laurie Young Her personality through the opening title sequence suggests her dominance over Sam. She doesn’t back down to what she believes in, and does what is right for her, instead of worrying about the mess he could turn into eventually if she leaves him.
