Getting Home

Story idea, an after effect of an EMP pulse hitting South Korea.  who did it?  Aliens? North Korea? Terrorists?

Foreigner On a bus in South Korea, reading a book, surfing the Web when signal is lost.  Annoying but then everyone else loses their signal too.  annoyance turns to slight panic when people start mentioning north Korea attack.  Bus suddenly shuts down, luckily brakes aren’t electronic, unlucky drivers here suck, bus skids wildly, takes out a few cars before grinding too a halt along the cement divider.  People screaming, crying and generally loosing their minds.  We finally get off the bus and every other car is stopped or crashed as well.  We were 1hr out from Jinju and the weather looked like it was about to get worse than the mild dribble that was going on now

The lone foreigner does a quick look over to make sure everyone is ok.  Nothing serious, a few bumps and bruises but that’s all.  He gets his suitcase from the bus storage area and decides he might as well start walking.

He sees fires off in the distance as he walls along.  Occasional explosions.  Even heard jets in the distance.  Most of the stopped cars still have people in or about them.  None of then say anything to the waygook(foreign person) walking down the highway.

Story develops info a struggle of a man, finding his wife and getting back to his home country, 12,000 miles away and across lots of water.

Story idea, good/evil

Most movies usually take place in one time setting.  There will be something in the end of the movie that has some sort of effect on the future but it is left to our imagination.  What if a movie script/story was written  where it was broken up into  multiple sections which advanced the time line.  For simplicity’s sake, here is an example of a 2 hr movie idea.

Good vs Evil.

Part one, 30mins: 4 parts Evil but something at the end happens which foreshadows a change in the future(good)
Part two. 30mins, 100 years later: 3 parts Evil, 1 part good
Part three, 200 years later: 1 part Evil, 3 parts good
Part four, 500 years later: 4 parts good but something at the end happens which foreshadows a change in the future(evil)

In this scenario, Good/Evil are merely concepts that can be expressed in any given way.  My idea is to show what happens after a typical movie is done where it only hints at a future change.  Think of Mad Max.  What happened after the end of the movie?  How does the world change?   Does it get better or worse?  I would like to see a broader perspective shown in this concept.  Not like Star Wars where all of it happens in a relatively (Darth Vader’s life) short time span.

I don’t know of any other movie/story that has done anything like that.
