TITLE: Paper Pushers
CATEGORY: International Baccalaureate (IB) Film Student Project
PRODUCER, DIRECTOR & DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY: Jacob Rak
PROJECT OVERVIEW: An original, action-packed, buddy-cop, comedy short film inspired by “Hot Fuzz” and other buddy cop films. This is a high school students original short film, meaning the shoot will be very guerrilla and “run and gun”, but I personally strive to achieve as high production quality as possible. 6-8 minutes.
LOGLINE: The partnership between two cops is tested as they put both their lives and their friendship on the line when dealing with an unusually violent suspect.
- SPIKE: (lead) 20’s to mid-30’s, a somewhat reckless, headstrong cop who often jumps into action before calculating risks. He hates paperwork with a passion, often complaining about it. When no action is occurring he is often lazy.
- RYAN: (lead) 20’s to mid-30’s, the more serious of the two, he is calm and calculating, often pausing briefly to think over the current situation before acting. His partner (Spike) often annoys him with his incessant complaining.
- SUSPECT: (supporting) 20’s-50’s, calm, serious, and silent, suspect comes off as a cold, hardened criminal with the expertise and knowledge to kill.
