#LiveEpoch

I'm a hip-hop artist who is releasing a collaborative project early next year.  The album is called "epoch" and the tag line for the whole shindig is "Live Epoch" meaining make moves like you're starting something new and better.

For the vignette, I plan on making a "trailer" in which a boy (or assorted children) run past tempting items that that would only serve to hold them back, to instead race on to a final destination to literally pick up the album.  The rejection of the "things" the boy passes and the picking up the album will be symbolic of "learn differently"...

Mission:  Despite all of the hindrances and obstacles, "Man" still has enough strenght to rise to create a new "day and age".  #LiveEpoch

Due to hella logistics, the project has changed shape from its original "look" above, yet meant to have the same effect.  Script rough draft #1 is below:

Images of “Man” falling to the initial 4 kicks of “Out of This World” wheas on the last one all is black.  As the main melody comes in, it spotlights “Man” now sitting in a ball in the bottom right corner of the screen.  As the beat plays, images of fears, hindrances, and obstacles that the boy has encountered in various stages of his life (TBD) are projected onto the wall, some of which are interacting/recognize him.  Then a child (or “appealing” woman) walks over to him, kneels down, and whispers in his ear.  After she finishes speaking, she fades away and the “boy” looks up very stern and focused.  Despite the continuing of the oppressive images, he begins to slowly, but steadily rise to his feet.  He finally is standing errect and the images begin flashing in rapid succession before they all fade out just leaving a confident “man” standing tall in the right hand of the screen.  An orange moon now fades in as the chorus to “out of this world” begins playing and then “#LiveEpoch” appears on the screen as well.  “Man” then walks away and the album details are shown after he exits.

FURTHER FLESHING OF TREATMENT

1) Projections of "man" falling

-admist a complete black backdrop

-thinking of doing it more of a "blinking fashion to each of the 4 intro kicks to the music

2) "Man"  sitting fetal position at the bottom right corner of the screen

-slow FI spotlight as illuminated from blackness

3) Projected "Weapon Man" running at "man" in slow-mo w/ weapon

4) Projections of parents arguing over "man"

-at one point mom will point back at the now cowering "man" (utilized to give indication that they know he's there.  Time Breach)

5) Hindrance 3" TBD

6) Projected "Weapon Man" now closer still running in slow-mo and we see obviously that he is gonna attack "Man"

7) Hindrance 4" TBD

8) "Child" walks over to the "Man" still in fetal, bends over, and whispers something in "Man's" ear.  She then turns and walks away and fades out.  When she does so, we see the projections of the seasons changing.  (This is to indicate that 1) Some people are only in your life for a season and 2) Some things that are told to you take time before they actually resonate in action.)

9) "Man" looks up very stern and focused and begins to rise slowly, but surely.  All the while Hindrances 1-4 are being repeated beside him.  Perhaps have the size/dimensions of these images begin to shrink as he rises.  (This would be to indicate that they still exist/existed but they are no longer as literally large or impactful to him.)

10) "Man" is finally is standing erect and the images begin flashing in rapid succession before they all fade out just leaving a confident “man” standing tall in the right hand of the screen.  

11) An orange moon now fades in as the chorus to “out of this world” begins playing and then “#LiveEpoch” appears on the screen as well.  

12) “Man” then walks away and the album details are shown after he exits.
