This is my opening shot. In this shot

there is clearly a well dressed man

passed out. And it is obvious that he

passed out from drinking nearly a

whole bottle of rum. It is quite

common to see the main character

of an action film being a heavy

drinker, to “drown their sorrows” as

such. Films such as Hancock have

the main character being an

alcoholic. It shows the audience that

the character might be troubled,

lonely, depressed or that he needs

to escape reality.

However Hancock is more of a

superhero action film and my film

does not have any supernatural flair

involved. My film will be more

similar to films like James Bond and

Transporter with the main character

being a well dressed male whom is

never 10 minutes from a car chase

or a gun fight.

substantial number of empty

bottles of spirits

These are two more screenshots from my

film opening and they show a bloodied

hand of a person in a bath tub.

Violence and gore is a common

occurrence in action films but there is

usually a fight before. In my film opening

there is a sense of mystery as to who the

dead person is and how they died.

The above picture is a screenshot from

Casino Royale’s opening scene. This scene

is in black and white, to show it is a

flashback, and mainly consists of a brutal

fight between James Bond (Daniel Craig)

and another person. Later on in the scene,

Bond partially drowns the man in a sink. I

used this comparison because both scenes

have someone dying in a bathroom.

My third screenshot is of Ephesian

wearing a black suit with a white

shirt and a black tie. Having the main

character in a suit is common in action

films as it makes the character look more

important and dominant.

My fourth and final screenshot is of

Ephesians car. Nowadays action films

aren't action films unless they have a car

chase involving fast and expensive sports

cars. The more ostentatious the car is the

more powerful the driver will seem.

In both Transporter 3 and

Quantum of Solace, the main

characters are in suits. Jason

Statham is in an almost

identical suit to my character.

The James Bond films are

renown for having luxury sport

cars. They are usually Aston

Martins as they are the

quintessential British sports car.
