Synopsis:BLUE is a "screamer", feeling pain whenever she is touched. Like most screamers, Blue also has a paranormal ability; in her case, she can hold an item, and feel where the person who held it last is. Blue is currently plying her trade for the FBI.
Blue grew up in an Institute for people like her, and isn't happy when Graham, the head of the Institute, requisitions her and some of the other screamers to help hunt down a serial killer. But when Blue is reunited with her lost love, she starts to unravel the secrets of who she is and what is happening.
A major rewrite. I deepened the characters and the situations throughout, as well as building tension and danger. More visual ideas were added, while the characters are now physically burned when they touch. Some characters' abilities have been changed, so that they are all in the same range. A major character was cut, another added, and every sequence was developed to make the tale stronger.
This is the second in my series of trailers for Scott's 3rd draft. All the footage was shot for the purpose of the new trailers with a new cast. For this one, I went for an interview feel with the screamers to establish the powers and what a screamer is.
The alternate cut is shorter with nearly all narration taken out. Scene headers have also been replaced with still pictures. A few scenes have been cut entirely or shortened and some scenes have been touched up to fix issues.
Please watch Trailer 3 for the new version of this trailer.
I decided to focus on the love story between Taylor and Blue since I feel that the emotion of those scenes was one of the strong points of our test movie. I also wanted to tease elements of the action and suspence, so I used quick images and sounds to show the audience that this is definitely more than a love story.
*THERE IS A NEW VERSION* Our original concept for the test movie was what we were calling a glorified table read. We wanted to stage as much action as possible, given our budget limitations, and avoid seeing a bunch of people sitting around a table reading from scripts. What we wanted to do was more of a cinematic stage play, and added storyboard elements to give it more visual punch.
