Synopsis: Genre: Drama, Comedy, Romance

Themes: Confronting change/Growing up

Story

Our story is about Chester, an overly positive video store employee who must confront the immanent demise of his beloved rental franchise, “Top Flicks.”

The Look

The film will take the style of a mock documentary. Characters will be set up in interview scenarios and dialogue between characters will be shot as if in real time. The documentary format however will not be rigidly maintained, and we will balance it between documentary shooting and slightly cinematic formatting. For example, if we go into an over the shoulder moment between two characters the format will be flexible enough that we can cut to each characters O.T.S without seeing documentary crew. The crew themselves will not be revealed, but actual characters will be aware of the cameras and frequently break the fourth wall.

Characters / Personnage
 
1. Chester - Lead - 20 to 25 - Male / Masculin - Any

Chester: A twenty three year old video store employee. Chester has been working at Top Flicks for the last seven years; the store and his job are huge portions of his life, influencing the way he acts day-to-day.

2. Carrie - Lead - 25 to 30 - Female / Féminin - Any

Carrie: Carrie is a twenty seven year old Top Flicks management employee. She plays opposite to Chester in that she sees the reality of their situation and the inevitable closing of Top Flicks. Her tone is deadpan and plain, she speaks her mind and seems to have little patience for people.

He takes his job as manager a little too seriously and constantly persists to motivate his staff. Throughout the film Jeff attempts to keep Top Flicks open through various ideas and schemes. Like Chester, although in a slightly smaller capacity, much of his identity is attached to his job and the store.
