Goal

We are testing out a video series concept By creating a short vignette. The vignette will provide marketing materials for a pilot trailer and the first scene of the pilot episode. If this project is successful, we will continue developing a full pilot episode to solicit funding for the entire series.

Story

Pilot vignette “A Quick Slice”: A quaint country diner turned organized crime front is visited by a surly vigilante with a few scores to settle.

Pilot Episode: Society has begun to crumble with growing crime rates and a DECLINING ability to keep the peace. An idealist detective hunts a vigilante after murdering several patrons of a local dinner in an attempt to rescue a young girl. The mystery unfolds as the detective, vigilante, and crime elements fight for control of a young kidnapped girl while trying to discover her significance.

Characters

Detective: Smart, idealistic, mildly naive. Stands up in the face of a crumbling society.

Waitress: Uninterested, jaded/deadpan, diner employee.

Female Hostage: Main character throughout series. Young girl in a state of helpless confusion as she struggles to regain her strength.

Male Manager: Diner manager operating front for local crime syndicate. Very intimidating and coarse.

Hit Man: Organized crime’s go-to-guy. Central character throughout series, hunting the vigilante and the female hostage. Very intimidating, authoritative presence, and an overall dislikable disposition.
