My chosen film to write about in the essay will be Saving Private Ryan, particularly focusing on the opening scene in which America invades Omaha beach.
My story idea in its most basic form is as follows...
There are two chefs, one being a Japanese sushi chef and the other an American Cowboy chef. The chefs both have caravan converted burger vans which they sell there food out of, both customised to match there type of food. These caravans are dead opposite each other on a derelict dusty high way. A passing by car stops to purchase food, with this customer being the first they have seen in a while, both the chefs get to work. The customer cannot decide which type of food he fancies and wonders in between caravans. With both the chefs eager to make a sale, one by one they offer a great deal on some extraordinary food, both taking part in a duel between bargains to make the sale. Whilst the chefs are battling it out between each other, the customer notices a highway sign for a fast food restaurant and decides to leave and go there. Leaving both chefs with a mound of food and no sale.
I'm still not happy with the dull way story ends, it seems to reach it climax then two have nothing happen. But for the essay part of this project, I'm rather happy and enjoying learning about it.
