Below are my synopsis’ for 3 Fan-fiction based scripts that I have come up with in relation to the fan-fiction centered project that we have been set.

Like the majority of his prole counter parts he lives blissfully unaware under the totalitarian state and watchful eye of Big Brother. That is until he witnesses the ‘taking’ of one of his neighbors at the hands of the thought police. His mask of naivety now gone and thinking independently from the majority, Jim has been marked for thoughtcrime. How could he possibly evade a force that even his own thoughts aren’t safe from? ‘
