Character: Jack, a Biker Turned Chef
Environment: Desert Farmyard
My idea revolves around a Biker turned Chef; his success comes from growing his own produce on his farm. But trouble starts when a group of Black-tailed jackrabbits move in and start to eat all of his food. This leads to a mini war, Chef Vs Rabbits. I imagine the rabbits to be very fast (Think Road Runner, bugs bunny etc) But also Mischievous like the creatures from Gremlins (1984, Dir. Joe Dante) which adds to the chefs rage as they mock him by running over traps without setting them off, run in and out of cages and dodging bullets. The Farmer tries to use all kinds of funny contraptions to catch the rabbits, but continues to fail until he is driving home about to accept defeat when he sees a rabbit stuck to a cactus next to the road and this gives him the idea of growing cactus.
The ending scene will be of a huge sign with the main character on it holding up a rabbit, standing next to a cactus, next to a sign that reads ”Jacks, Jack-Rabbit ’n’ Cacti Pie’. The camera then zooms out so the viewer can see over the sign, which reviles a field of cactus with rabbits stuck onto the spikes of the plant, where they have tried to run full speed away from him but ended up impaled.
I really like this idea because it is simple, yet affect and will hopefully lead to a few laughs as Jack try’s to catch the rabbits.
Really looking forward to feedback on this as i wish to move onto the next steps of the project now!
