COCAINE

^ I HAD TO RESEARCH SOME INFORMATION ON COCAINE. I FOUND SEVERAL FACTS ONLINE. IN THIS BOX IT SUGGESTS ALL THE ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF USING COCAINE. I THINK WE WILL STICK TO THE SNORTED METHOD AS IT IS WILL BE THE MOST EASIEST TO FILM AND ALSO AS EMILY HAS NOT TAKEN DRUGS BEFORE, SHE WILL NOT KNOW OF ALL THE ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF TAKING COCAINE.

12A

^ WE ARE THINKING OF GIVING OUR FILM A 12 CERTIFICATE SO IT WAS ONLY OBLIGATORY TO CHECK THE BBFC WEBSITE AND SEE WHAT THEY MENTION IN THEIR 12 CERTIFICATION GUIDELINES. IT SAYS THAT SCENES OF DRUG MISUSE CAN BE BRIEFLY SHOWN BUT IT SHOULD NOT GLAMORISE IT OR PROVIDE IN STEP BY STEP METHODS OF TAKING IT, WHICH A YOUNG TEENAGE AUDIENCE MAY IMITATE. WE ARE DEFINITELY NOT GLAMORISING THE MISUSE OF DRUGS. EVEN TO THE AUDIENCE, THEY WILL ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS THE ANTAGONIST’S METHOD OF CAPTURING THE PROTAGONIST, SIMILARLY TO A VILLAIN POSING AS A PRINCE ONLY TO CAPTURE THE PRINCESS. A 12 AUDIENCE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHY THE DRUG MISUSE WILL BE SHOWN AND HOW IT LEADS TO A DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCE. BY TAKING BAIT, EMILY ENDS UP BEING RAPED AND ON THE VERGE OF DEATH. IT DOES NOT SHOWCASE A PLEASANT LIFESTYLE WHERE ALL HER PROBLEMS ARE RID OFF. IN A WAY IT ANTI-GLAMORISES DRUGS BY SHOWCASING THE HURDLES A TEENAGER MAY FACE BY TAKING DRUGS.

WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING A STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION INTO TAKING THE DRUGS. THE SCENE WILL BE VERY TENSE AND WE WILL MOST LIKELY BE ADDING A LOT OF EFFECTS AND TRANSITIONS TO CREATE A DISORIENTATED EFFECT. SECONDLY, THE AUDIENCE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT OUR DRUG IS FICTIONAL AND ONLY REMINISCENT OF COCAINE. WE ALSO DO NOT WANT OUR FILM TO BE 12 A FOR PERSONAL REASONS. WE BELIEVE THAT DESPITE OUR FILM NOT INCLUDING STRONG LANGUAGE OR GORE, CHILDREN BELOW THE AGE OF 12 SHOULD BE NOT ABLE TO WATCH IT (I’M SPEAKING AS IF WE’RE MAKING AN OFFICIAL BRITISH LOW BUDGET FILM WHICH IS GOING TO BE RELEASED IN CINEMA LOOL).  ANYWAY THIS FILM IS MAINLY A MYSTERY AND IT’S ALL ABOUT THE RECEPTION OF THE AUDIENCE, THEIR READING OF THE FILM. PEOPLE AGED 12 AND ABOVE ARE SOON LIKELY TO DEAL WITH ISSUES SUCH AS BEING PEER PRESSURED INTO SMOKING ETC… THIS FILM WILL BE INFORMATIVE T A TEENAGE AUDIENCE AND ABOVE.

^THIS IS A DRUG SCENE FROM THE FILM ‘AMERICAN PSYCHO’. CHRISTIAN BALE’S CHARACTER AND HIS FRIEND MOST SNORT COCAINE. THEY SNORT IN THE TOILETS, WHICH IS QUITE A SMALL SECLUDED AREA. THIS IS SIMILAR TO OUR LOCATION OF THE SUBWAY TUNNEL. BOTH ARE GOOD LOCATION CHOICES FOR A DRUG SCENE BECAUSE IT MAKES THE AUDIENCE FEEL AS IF THEY ARE LIKE THE CHARACTERS. THE AUDIENCE WILL FEEL TENSE AND TRAPPED ALMOST. THE SECOND CHARACTER APPEARS TO BE QUITE AGGRESSIVE. FOR OUR AFTERMATH OF THE DRUG TAKING PART, WE ARE THINKING OF HAVING EMILY HALLUCINATING.
