Property of Scavenger, a grim story of Scavenger, the sole survivor of a power plant orbiting around Saturn. Through his final letter one is drawn into the main character’s many layers of consciousness, realizing the truth about the inhabitants fate and their existence.
Adapting Property of Scavenger’s stream of consciousness into a screenplay will bring the story of Scavenger and the inhabitants of the power plant to life. The teaser will only be a few minutes long and with your support we will be able to find the locations, actors, and begin shooting and editing this fall.
In order to construct this futuristic world of Property of Scavenger, I will be collaborating with the photographer Roy Rossovich, http://www.designphoto.se
. Rossovich’s visual imagery in motion and still photography will be a great benefit to the obscure world onboard the abandoned power plant.
Disconnected from the rest of civilization the power plant relies on a moss that turns the dead into pure energy in order to be self-sufficient. When, for no apparent reason, all communication with the home planet is lost, and the energy diminishes with each new body claimed by the plant, there’s only one solution to the occupants situation. Volunteers will be needed and the selection is commenced. Harvester is a man in charge of harvesting a byproduct of the moss, a psychedelic seed that is used by the inhabitants as vacation. Now the seeds have become their ultimate escape and aid if they are ever to find their way back home again. As the population reduces, Harvester realizes that his purpose alters and before long, he becomes Scavenger. Through abandoned letters and Scavenger’s perception we are taken through different layers of consciousness as he explains the full layout of the plant, the inhabitants history, and uncovered memories.
