Fugazi is a fictional story, which takes place one summer evening in London August 1985, lasting 20- 30 minutes. Fugazi is a two act structure. The story is about friendship between three student nurses from completely different backgrounds. This movie is a snap shot of England in 1985.

Fugazi is a black comedy. A black comedy makes fun of taboo subjects. The subjects I discuss are the dangerous of smoking, nurses strike for better pay, student debt, necular fallout, global warming and fake news printed in the newspaper.

Fugazi will be a short film made using still photography. Fugazi will be recorded using my DSLR camera. I will record the images using black and white and colour photography. black and white creates a great power in a still image and it also has a certain timeless quality to the picture.

Fugazi follows the protagonist Christie Lyons, Lyons is from a working class background, she struggles with being a student nurse, Lyons holds down a part time job working in a fish and chip shop in Bayswater.

Adrian Green and Elizabeth Hawks are from completely different backgrounds, green is from a middle class background and Hawks is from a upper class background they are all bought together because the are both studying a nurses degree.

Dr. Captain Gunner the terminator is the examiner.

Saxon is a rock star with the band Platinum.

(The problem)

Christie Lyons is addicted to nicotine, and needs to quit, because it is costing her money, Christie needs to pay for her student debt.

(Opposition)
Christie Lyons can’t decide to quit lighting up. Adrian Green and Elizabeth Hawks persuade Christie to quit lighting up by informing her of the dangerous.
The metaphor for the film is the tobacco, I compare lighting up with the devil.
When it’s time for the exam the only opposition standing in their way is the examiner the terminator the antagonist, Dr. Captain Gunner.
Adrian Green, Christie Lyons and Elizabeth Hawks need to pass their last exam to become qualified nurses.

(The end)
All the girls pass their exam, Elizabeth Hawks gets her VW Convertible car, Adrian Green get her dream job of becoming a midwife, and Christie Lyons has money to pay for her student debt by becoming a nurse. Christie makes an important life changing decision to quit lighting up because her health will suffer.

The actors will read the dialogue from my scrip. I will recorder the audio using a Rode NTG-1 shotgun condenser microphone with a Tascam DR40X digital audio recorder.

I will use sound effects and music. Sound is important because it increases the production value, sound engages audiences, sound helps deliver information, sound evokes emotional responses, sound emphasises what's on the screen and is used to express an action, mood, or feeling.

The cinema style of Fugazi will be filmed as cinema verite. This is a style of documentary filmmaking. This style of filmmaking creates the impression that what is taking place on screen is an authentic slice of life, real life on the run.

Fugazi expresses the director’s life experience and philosophy of life.

The director follows the protagonist Christie Lyons rhythms of real life, university life and social life. As a filmmaker I must convince my audience to believe the story I am telling them, no matter how absurd my story may be. This is called Suspension of disbelief. This is good for fiction.

The photography should take 1 to 3 days to shoot, late afternoon and evenings between 4pm- 9 pm. I will shoot in 4-6 different outdoor locations and 1 indoor location in central London.

The dialogue should take 1 day to record. (Indoor location in central London)

1 day for interviews- 1 day solo interview and 1 day group interview.

I will buy the actors costumes and props for Fugazi.

Fugazi will be shown on YouTube, with a world wide audience of a billion people.
