Our initial idea was going to be a mixture between 'This Means War' and 'Mean Girls', of which both films are very different and are categorised under different genres. Our initial idea was going to be set in rural universities within the heart of the UK. The film was going to be under the genre of Romantic Comedy. The film consisted of one boy named Joey, who was being chased by two girls which both attend the same uni as him. Both girls knew that there were both seeing Joey, but had decided to allow Joey the space he needed to make his choice between the girls without them interfering. Joey was completely oblivious that the girls both knew he was dating both of them at the same time, and would act in a very 'ladish' way around his best mate Danny. Both girls would then go and try to sabotage each others dates, playing physical and mental games with each other. This then puts a massive strain on their friendship, of which has lasted since they were young girls. The film would then go on to Joey finally making the decision between the girls, of which he choses neither of them and they both end up without him.
The feedback we got from our initial idea was a mixture of positive and negative. The whole idea of playing a mystery man proved a hit with the classmates, of whom we was pitching too. We found that our idea was too similar to others, and wasn't original enough. The students of who we was pitching too felt that they would not go see this film as they could already tell the plot of the story before the film has even begun. This is why we have chosen to add a surprise, mysterious element into the plot of our new idea. Once we had pitched the new fresh idea to the students, the feedback was a lot more positive as we found that they enjoyed the mysterious Facebook stalker element, with small little twists thrown in.
