9. Ideas Development

1) The shot will open with a cowering child, alone in the cold and darkness of his abandoned mud hut. From the left side of the hut the word "Disease" floats in and starts attacking the child. To show that he is attacking the child he will have arms and he will be wielding a small dagger. As he swings for the child a stick figure will swoop in, with a pound coin as a shield and a rolled up bank note as a sword. He will slice the disease in half and it will fall on the floor. Then more words like "poverty" and "conflict" where they will attack the stick figure and he will strike them down with his sword. After they are all defeated he picks up the child and flies off and gets bigger and bigger until he fills the entire screen, then turns into the "Save the Children" logo.

2) For this idea we will be using a whiteboard. The shot will start with a plain whiteboard, a finger will enter from the bottom and draw a stick man and a hut that he is living in. The stick man will have nothing with him and he will be sad. All of a sudden, coins start falling from the roof of the hut, then bank notes and later food. The whole screen gets filled up with money and food and it gets swiped away and the stick man is in a new house with a family and a homely pet. After that the text "One Pound a Month can... Save the Children" then the logo will slide on from the left side.

3) The setting is a desert, with a single cactus. Tumbleweed rolls by and bounces across the screen. Suddenly money falls from part of the sky, building a part of the land. First making a water tower, followed by numerous houses being built. Again, money falls from the sky on a different side of the screen and a school is built by the money. Finally, a Save the Children tent gets built right in the centre and people come in from either side looking happy with their new community. Slowly fades to black and the title and tag line appears.
