Snippets of a dream. Flashes of a beautiful blonde woman. Strange images not yet understood. A man “awakens” from his vision. He must get to this woman. Why? Is she the one? Is she in trouble? Who is she? Where is she? Does this man even know her?
As the film progresses we are there as his flashes of insight become more and more coherent, the where, and when become obvious, but the why is still as elusive as the true meaning of the vision. Not until the last moment do we understand that this man must save this stranger. This beautiful woman will be killed if not saved by this man. He arrives in the nick of time to pull her to safety. A look of understanding and gratitude crosses her face. A glimmer of…adoration, a feeling of mutual attraction the man desperately desires and needs in his lonely existence. But it is short lived as a new vision overtakes him. With his gift, his curse, comes the responsibility to act. Only his swift response can save these virtual strangers, but at a price, a normal existence.
We see the mundane become obstacles for this obviously gifted man. Visionary, psychic, hero, whatever we choose to label this man, he is human, and he must overcome these everyday occurrences quickly to save a life, and to save himself from the insurmountable guilt that comes with failure. This man is on a quest to answer the call of his visions, to save strangers from disaster, or is it just to save his own peace of mind…
My pitch was approved. I have only showed it to Luanne. I am going to show you guys. Tell me what you think. Steve, if you want to do yours, you need to submit your pitch to one of the guys listed here on this thread of the official rules. http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=166088
They asked for a simple pitch to see if you were abiding by the theme of the Fest. You had to “answer” some simple questions in your narrative. It was to read kind of like the back of a DVD sleeve.
Tell me what you guys think. I have the “script” all done. There is really no dialoge to speak of (no pun intended) I will post that script (ha get it! Post script!) if you guys want.
I’m dsto, and I’m out!
