Log Line: No bullet a name.
Nameless is an abstract short film dealing with the controversial topic of inner city violence and what it can do to a society. It takes a look at destructive societal personalities through the eyes of six bullets. Each bullet represents the affects of these personalities on the innocent citizens of a community.
What is Nameless about?
Nameless is a independent short film that follows the story of six bullets, and how each of them view society from their own perspective. What the bullets really represent is society as a whole, and the pain that different attitudes can cause towards others. So many times a year a innocent victim is hit by stray gun fire. Many of them young children, I wanted to bring attention to this in a entertaining and visually artistic way.
The film explores, inner city violence, sacrifice, and trying to stand up for whats right in the face of opposition. All through the eyes of bullet number six the last bullet to leave the gun. The film will explore a very real topic in a abstract way.
Meet Bullet #6
As a man is about to commit a drive by shooting we pause before he pulls the trigger, going inside the barrel of his gun and into the thoughts of six bullets sitting in a circle ready tobe fired. Bullet One, the enthusiastic causer of pain, cannot wait to exit the gun and inflict damage. Bullet Two, the follower that wants to be as dangerous as Bullet One but isn’t as sure in his abilities. Bullet’s Three, and Four, are just there to do a job, no attachment, no regret, and no responsibility. Bullet Five, the Bullet that does not know what the do, the one that causes pain through indecisiveness, the lack of action in stopping a bad thing from happening, and finally Bullet Six, the one that speaks out, that wants to end all of the violence and chaos starting with this one small action of not leaving the gun. He is outnumbered but willing to fight for what he believes is the right thing. As the six bullets sit in their respective circles of light reflecting to each other they find out what the outside world means to them and their true purpose of existing. Time passes and each bullet exits the gun making the situation direr for Six to stop them. With time ticking away and the unknown happening on the outside world, Six does his best to convince the rest of the Bullets to jam the gun up and save the people in the outer reality. Chaos ensues as even Six himself is forced out of the gun and finds that he is also going to have to make the ultimate decision. When confronted with his own destiny he comes face to face with his target, only to find out that this nameless victim is not so nameless after all.
