Thumbnails "Brain Munchers" Part 1.
Pan over to reveal man limping away from camera. Man is a Scientist in a lab coat. He's bloodied and bruised, holding a box and shovel. He's in very bad shape, and great pain. He drops to his knees places the box on the ground. The box shakes a couple times. Something is inside the box. He starts digging a hole but he's very tired. He finishes the hole and places the box inside and buries it. Then he drops the shovel and walks away.

The man heads back to his cargo van. But he's limping exhausted and can hardly make it back. He collapses against the side of the van to take a rest. He quickly passes out. His face dissolves into the moon. Night Time. Camera pans down to reveal the same box from before is opened and it looks to be empty. Camera pans over to reveal Scientist is still passed out against van.

The man hears little squeaky sounds and starts to wake up. He recognizes the sounds. He looks up and three small figures stand about 30 feet away from him. "Oh god no" he cries. Still exhausted he reaches for the car door handle in an effort to get inside the van. Camera cuts back and forth to 3 figures as they get closer. They are little big headed, sharped teeth "Brain Munchers". The door clicks open and he limps to try and get inside the van.

The little devils have picked up the pace and are about to get their dinner. The man is just about inside the Van. Cut to extreme close up of man's eye with reflection of BM's. They jump right at camera. Cut to wide shot of Van. A scream! Time cut as camera dissolves to reveal moon in different location. Munching sounds as camera pans around to the side of the van. BM's are inside the man's head using it like a hot tub eating his brains. One get's out and walks toward camera. Looks off into distance. Burps. Two other BM's join one holding brains in it's hand. The talk in squeaky little voices. Cut to City Los Angeles. Camera pulls back to reveal BM's walking towards city.
The last shot there are a lot of BM's walking to the city. I thought they would be scarier if they multiply whenever the eat brains or they reproduce like rabbits or something.

Back Story: A genetic engineer's quest for scientific fame and glory backfires on him. His aggressive little creations have a devilish appetite for nothing other than human brain. As a last ditch effort he takes them out to the desert to bury them for ever.
I think there's going to be a lot of challenges on this one. It's going to be shot with live action backgrounds and Comp'ed with CG characters. I was originally going to have a friend be the scientist, but decided to try CG instead cause I think I can get the make-up to look better and get some pushed expressions. I think it's going to be tough to do the night time shots as I want it to be dark but not too dark that everything looks black. I want to keep the suspense up, and that might read better when I get some cutting, spooky music and sfx in.
Open to any and all feedback of course. Let me know if something could be better more suspenseful or clearer or anything. Thanks and good luck to everyone! Trying to keep it simple as my goal is to just finish. Positive vibes to all.
Update's with a character designs, models, animatic to follow.
