Script to Screen: Idea 7 (Changes)

After taking into account the suggestion that was given to make my story have a better ending, I altered my story accordingly.

Idea 7: The Obsessive Artist

Character 1 Biography:
> Alvaro, a 42 year old artist
> Quiet in person but expressive in terms of his artwork
> Visits the Emerald Zoological Gardens regularly to do his paintings
> Perfectionist
> Medium Built, about 5’8” weighing 165 lbs

Character 2 Biography:

> Raul, a 38 year old zookeeper

Artist of all ages are always seen setting up their easel in front of an animal’s enclosure of their choice, as they attempt to capture nature’s beauty on to their canvases. Alvaro is one of the artists who frequent the zoo, as he loves to paint the wildlife. Alvaro style of painting is very distinguished because of his precise brushstrokes. Just like any other day, as Alvaro was in the midst of creating a masterpiece, he realised that the strokes that began to appear on his canvas was clumsy and rough. Instinctively, he knew that his favourite paintbrush have been fully utilised. A perfectionist, he believed that he was not able to function any further if he does not get his bristles replaced immediately. The search of finding the perfect bristle triggered this madness.

Every night since, Alvaro would sneak into the zoo and set up his net to lure and later, trap his victim, in search of the perfect match to recreate his paintbrush.

Meanwhile, the disappearance of the animals becomes a very serious issue that the zoo and the press worked together by publishing articles 'The Fisherman Strikes Again At Local Zoo” and a reward would be given in return. Alvaro was very determined and obsessed to find his replacement bristles that these wanted signs were not even once seen as a slightest threat to this madness nor did he realise that Raul, the zookeeper was onto him. One night, the zookeeper caught him in action and confronted him. A scuffled started, a man’s life ended. It was not known who was killed until a photo of the zookeeper splashed across the front page of the newspaper, with half of his well-groomed moustache missing. A sinister, sadistic smile was painted all over Alvaro’s face as he admires his fat new brush and a perfect painting.
