Sophie and stones broke her bones

My character, Hannah, played by Jessica Lines, will star as a lonely, shy, and bullied girl with extremely low self esteem. One day after school, the girl is verbally attacked by the bullies who have bullied her throughout her school life and has stones thrown at her by the worst bully of all, Sophie. One hits her and she falls to the floor, the bullies run off leaving her laid in a heap on the pavement. After lying in a pool of her own blood, still unfound, she picks her self up and walks home, as the bus has left without her. She goes home to an empty house, her parents are always out at work, and goes to bed. The film actually begins when she wakes up the next morning extremely distressed. Hannah, the young bullied girl, stands over her bathroom sink looking into the mirror talking about what happened yesterday, in a monolog style, and we don’t actually see the events of yesterday happen. She doesn’t want to go to school but is forced to do so as there are no more excuses left not to and she doesn’t want to tell her mother about the bullies. She unwillingly leaves for school without saying good bye to her mother. On arrival at school, after a short bus ride, she can see the bullies at the school gates. The worst bully of all, Sophie, wasn’t there but still she waits for them to begin tormenting her, but to her surprise nothing is said. The young girl is delighted and carries on her way to class. However, on her way to class she sees the head teacher directing all students to the assembly hall for an unscheduled assembly, so she follows the crowds of students. Then during the assembly we, as the audience, and Hannah, the young girl her self, have the shocking realisation that she is dead. Hannah is distraught when, through flashbacks which we also see, she realises where she fell after being hit by that stone which Sophie threw at her is intact where she died. The film gives something fresh and original to the horror genre, by having a realistic drama narrative that is disrupted and disturbed. This film also sends out a strong anti-bulling message and will be aimed at teenagers/young adults.

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
