Our idea is going to be a dramatic hunting sequence. The idea of having a day to day average Joe hunting for food which then is portrayed as a ready meal/pack of food. This shows an unreal/unexpected scene that questions everyday life and what we take for granted. The key objective is to question how we perceive reality.
