We are students from Arts University Bournemouth and we are going to shot a short film.

Characters:
John: appears younger than Claire, he is stressed and frustrated as he can’t get a room in the hotel as he has flown over for his sister’s graduation.
Claire: chose to be a pornstar, and it’s all she has known, as time has passed she has become more in control and ‘enjoys’ what she does, but as a result of this she feels all her relationships have been compromised and fears she can never find real love.

Genre:
Neo noir

Themes:
Acceptance. Order and chaos. Decisions. Perspective. Responsibly.

Synopsis:
Two strangers meet in a hotel, a woman smokes and sips an expensive drink in the lobby as a dishevelled young man sits beside her struggling with a heavy suitcase. Distracted for a moment he notices the ‘no smoking sign’ on the wall, and above it a quote:
Matthew 7:14 “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
The two then gradually become irritated by the others demeanour before Claire snaps asking him to move as he is sucking her into his ‘realm of anxiety.’ Shocked, John asks her to move as smoking is not allowed. She laughs at this and the two retort back and forth about johns predicament as he waits for a room, Claire asks him to consider ‘real’ problems in the world telling him a story of her troubles whilst telling him to breathe and enjoy the moment and not worry about trivial matters.
Stunned as the receptionist approaches telling him the hotel is all booked up, he looks towards the sign once again as it all seems clear to him. He then picks up him suitcase with ease as the woman walks back down the corridor towards the lift.

Style:
Influences: fight club, lost in translation, the graduate.
Aims: to keep Claire’s character shrouded in mystery as we discover johns respect for her and his acceptance in himself throughout there convocation.
