Im aware this isn't a writing contest ;). But I do enjoy it.
The scenerio is one that I think is valid. The concept sketches outline my gerneral direction and idea. I am working my way through composition ideas, any input would be great.

In my mind I envision the plane very large on screen, almost so you can view the pilots, but that may not be possible,
In my second image, I see the plane with hald a way, the other half broken off now the plane has touched down into the tarmac.
In the third I have the plane literally going head first, not sideways into the ground. with a reporter in front reporting caught off gaurd, reporting at the embassy for a speech being made.
I like this plane idea, I can see the final images in my mind. And believe that they are doable.

Another thing floating around up there.. is essentally a scene from the war #3, whichever country wants democracy next. In which the destruction of city and lives go hand in hand, Mirrored in the complex and contradicting emotions of the characters involved.

Another is the moment in time where God steps in and tells us how awful we are, and how disapointed he is. Slightly in an almost comical manner.

sorry to be honest I didn't read all... but the sketches with the airplain between building looks very very cool ! And if it wasn't a BritishAir but some military futuristic jet to give a more speed sensation... welll just a thought, I know that will change all the story... !

09 September 2005, 08:18 AM
Thanks Jddgo, originally it was to be a fighter jet.. still could be. Thanks for the input.

09 September 2005, 08:55 AM
geee...hmm i dont know why...but i have this weeird feeling ur work will be frickin it a hunch

09 September 2005, 09:05 AM
