Something stupid this way comes, and it's called - Room 1 -

So I was reading through my junk, a collection of random thoughts or essays, or reply's I had written that I felt I needed to save (You may have seen some I have posted XD) when I cam across something I wrote about 6 months ago, Im not entirely sure what possessed me to write it but I did, and looking back I can't see why I saved it, so ill post it up.

It was supposed to be n outline of a web style series of shorts I wanted to do If i ever had the means to produce such a thing. This is a very rough outline, that is in the style of David Lynch, so I guess It's suppose to be more than it alludes to be and purposefully cryptic. Enjoy.

This series is about a man alone in a room, but the audiance clearly hears more than one voice, but nothing is in the shot aside from the lone man.

This series will allude that there is something else in the room but the room will appear empty making it up to the viewer whether the man is crazy or not. There will be subtle hints there may be a presence in the room with him but will never be stated clearly.

out of context the story will make very little sense, and it will be up to the viewer to decipher a meaning to the story.

Episode 3.

[as the final episode begins the room is much darker than the previous two episodes and white noise can be heard at excessive volume]

really

Unknown: why?3

They all laughed at me.

unknown: yes they did?3

they won't laugh anymore. 3

I looked like a fool.3

It's Dark now. 3 [Eyes now appear black with no soul.]

[As he says this he gets up and proceeds out of the scene.]

[Option 1 the Money shot] About 30 seconds passes. [A black shadow appears to get up from the couch and approaches the camera]

[Option 2] [As Jim leaves the room he leaves the camera running, it goes into a power saving mode and returns on to see that Jim is crying on the floor in a ball, covered in blood]

[camera stops]

So there it is, I don't know, kinda stupid, but I think it has potental if I worked out some of my ideas a bit better, but this is suppose to be surreal horror, so I guess I don't have to.
