Plan for Locke teaser trailer

Establish a linear narrative, with the development of Locke’s situation roughly outlined. Start off by revealing he’s committed an act that he regrets and then reveal that he has lost his job and family as a result. However, we won’t mention the fact that it has anything to do with an affair or the fact that he works as a project manager for a cement pouring firm. Instead we’ll have audio of his boss explaining their possible losses so that it seems he holds a more important position than just being in charge of cement being poured. We’ll use dramatic music to try and create a more suspenseful atmosphere than the one found in the film itself. However, we will be sure to not reveal too much in order to retain narrative enigmas that can only be solved through the watching of the film. This way our teaser trailer will be more effective and professional.
