This is an experiment in writing a section of a film script for a film which has not been written. The film employs a layered audio and narrative approach which aims to promote a non conventional viewing experience where different ‘stories’ compete for attention, and unlike the traditional film, evades a fixed reading. Due to its form and creative approach, the film is being constructed in a spontaneous and reflective manner. The prospect of writing the script is necessarily retrospective and offers the challenge of translating digitally manipulated audio sequences into the form of text. The film, with the working title of “sergeant bonestar’s big shit idea”, is being created from live footage, green screen, photographs, CGI etc. with layers of audio including texts from live interview, historical reports, narrative voice over etc. The narrative component follows a woman alienated by her surroundings after sustaining a head injury. This surrealist thriller frequently disintegrates forming windows to hauntological landscapes and uncanny dreams.
