Short film idea – Treatment

AT THE DOOR
Short Film Treatment
by
Rumena Zlatkova

A humble but insistent SALESMAN on a typical workday, аnd his antisocial CLIENTS. Little did he know what he might find behind the DOOR…

ACT ONE:

Day 1. An empty street at dusk in a British suburb – twin houses with parked cars and small front gardens. We hear a constant hammering on a door. Although it sounds insistent, no one seems to answer. There is a feeling of quietness and loneliness – the street is empty, only a cyclist passes at some point. The hammering continues. We hear a dog bark. Street sounds are to be heard somewhere far. In the end, we see a male’s hand putting a free sample of a doorbell on the doorstep.

ACT TWO:

Day 2. Same lonely street, dusk. Instead of hammering, we hear a doorbell ringing. Again no answer.

ACT THREE:

Day 3. Same street at dusk. We see there is no doorbell at the door. When we look down, the free sample is back in the package. There is a handwritten note with it: ‘Thanks, but we’re not interested.’
