Lucretia is a story we feel can highlight the vivid images presented with direct TV service, while
engaging the imaginations of viewers and making them consider the product based on the
enticing idea of escaping reality by simply watching their television. Is that not what everyone
wants from their Televisual experience?
We have included:
1.
Original “Mood” drawings, sketches and composites based on our ideas of what the final
film/commercial should look like.
2.
The script for Lucretia, which is a dominantly silent piece.
3.
A brief budget breakdown in USD.
4.
