Logline

Four children, born of the forest – with animalistic attire and personalities, discover a dead body and a gun.

Synopsis

There are four children, seemingly born of the forest - Moose, Osprey, Lynx and Wolf. They all bear attire and personalities that reflect their animal and speak through their own version of sign language. They live a peaceful life in their small village, in the heart of the forest, until the night the man arrives. Woken by the sound of cars in the distance and a gun-shot, the children follow a hasty Wolf to investigate. At the scene of the crime is the body of an adult, illuminated by the headlights of a car, and a gun - all new things to their culture. The group argue and, eventually, decide to bring the gun back to the village. As four beings that scarcely understand violence, they are left with the perplexing task of owning this dangerous new technology.

Set Decoration Inspiration

Set Decoration Inspiration

The set will be much smaller than the villages presented in these inspiration photos. There will be one small tent, some decorations on the trees - fabrics, shapes carved from wood, flowers - and utilitarian objects, such as seats, a fire pit of rocks, a rack to hang fish, etc. All of the items will be seemingly made of found forest materials.
