|An iconic chase scene from my young-adulthood|
Black pixels on a white screen will not engage them. The words of this blog will not trigger "Hey, that could have been me!" should any young-adult stumble into these pages.
Words talked at them by people who are not their peers will not do it, either.
A series of short video vignettes that are stitched together have a fighting chance of being successful if it intersects with pre-programmed scenes and messages.
I propose that these short videos be "ads" placed with various video streaming services like Youtube.
|Example of the protagonist. Hopefully, every young woman can identify with the radiant joy and boundless hope of being in a wedding.|
Scene one: A chase scene that resembles a recently released movie. Suggested that the scene be "lifted" from a video game because they have great graphics and the target audience is comfortable with the look-and-feel. Protagonist a 10-to-12-year-old, African-American (A-As abort their pregnancies at 3X the base-rate) in a vestal virgin or baptismal outfit or flower-girl at wedding to imply total innocence.
If I were trying to sell my generation, I would use scenes that resemble iconic scenes from Indian Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark. When I am selling to 20 year-olds I would use scenes that resemble The Avengers series.
Duration about 1.5 seconds. Long enough for viewer to identify the situation.
Scene two: A surgical environment with key players positioned like the aggressors chasing the vestal virgin.
Duration about 0.5 seconds. It is OK if half the viewers do not consciously recognize the scene the first time they see it.
Scene three: Aggressors swinging swords and spiked clubs with the vestal virgin dancing away from the weapons. Mostly holding her own but due to confined space the aggressors are successful at inflicting wounds. Iconic sequence for young adults.
Duration 2 seconds. Building suspense
Scene four: Fetus attempting to withdraw from dilation and curettage surgical instruments.
Duration slightly less than 1 second.
Scene four: Vestal virgin breaks free from aggressors and makes a dash for the door, similar to Indiana Jones outrunning the boulder at the beginning of the series. The door or the exit to the cave is symbolic of the birth canal.
Duration 0.5 seconds.
Scene five: Scissors plunged into the back of a baby's skull.
Duration 0.25 seconds.
