THE TRUE STORY
This movie is based on a true story happened in June 23, 1993 in Virginia. This episode is known as Bobbit Case, from his protagonist names, John and Lorena Bobbit. In that night Lorena Bobbit cut his husband penis and run away for throwing it out in a field. Why she act like that?
The subsequent trial in court proved that she was sexually and mentally abused from her husband, until that night in which she lost her control and decided to deprive him of his offensive weapon. In the end she was defined not guilty.
And miraculously John had his penis reattached, after a nine our surgery.
Our story takes the inspiration from this episode, but we want to focus on something different, more funny and light in comparison with the original facts.
So in our story John is not a rapist but a simple horny man who can not satisfy his desire with his wife. So the guy finds a pretty interesting way to get out of the situation. He decides to casting for porn, because appears as an easy way to find somebody else for fuck and also get some extra money. His wife is not agree with his project and during the night decide to cut of his penis.
Here we have to explain how our camera and our idea is perfect to tell this story in a 360° VR movie. Our camera, a Ricoh Theta S, has a phallic form, so we thought could use it hooked on the actor’s belt simulating a penis. We thought it could be an incredible idea, totally new, totally unexpected and funny. So we create a story from a penis point of view. The problem was that a penis have a pretty boring life: we found our technique to shoot a penis's point of view of pissing or of receive a blowjob, but we thought this is not enough to attract the spectator. So we wrote our story to add a little unexpected extra fun.
After that we started to study a support for lock the camera on the waist, so the actor could move and act using the camera more or less exactly as a penis. We studied also how to simulate all the gestures around the camera for avoid distortions and aberration, for realize something really immersive and realistic.
Now our big goal is to educate cast and crew to a 360° shooting, that means EVERYTHING is in the frame. We will need almost 6 days of shooting, 4 principal actors and some extras, build the scenario and the most important thing: define all the special effects for camouflage the camera, realize a realistic cut and other surprises you’re going to see in the movie.
