Ideation for Narrative


1. Children & Parenting

I have expressed my disliking for children in general and the topic came to mind while I was commuting from home to work in the early hours of the morning. Children can be negligent and, at times, misbehave in public which would often end up ugly for their parents who have to act appropriately to counter their misdemeanor. However, not all parents intuitively handle the situation well. The way a child behaves at home or in public reflects their guardian’s parenting skills.

With this context in mind, I wish to come out with a “dos and donts” narrative that would approach the issue which concerns parenting in public.

2. Hantu Tetek

Southeast Asian folklores have always sparked some interest in me at a very young age. The adults in my family used to frighten me with scary tales about the Hantu Tetek to have me home before dusk falls. But is the legend true? Or is it simply a myth to scare children into thinking that if they stay out too late, a demon with gigantic mammary would come and capture them?

I am very interested in further researching about this topic and create a narrative that not only discuss about the story of the Hantu Tetek, but also how such monstrous creatures came about in hopes that the viewer unravel some truth about this mythical tale.

Topic chosen: Hantu Tetek


Act 1:
The character has lost his way home in the dense forest of his hometown.
All he has is his dying camera phone (with no signal).
It is getting dark and he will lose his visibility of his trail in a matter of minutes.

Act 2:
He finds himself in the courtyard of abandoned manor but by that time, the sky is dark and it begins to rain.
He takes shelter in the manor, navigating with the flashlight from his dying camera phone.
He feels a presence lurking around, going after him.
He keeps on moving and finds remnants of the past that describes a monstrous breasted-creature that lusts for the blood of young man.
Vigorous sounds can be heard.

Act 3:
Possibility 1 – He finds his way out of the forest and back home.
Possibility 2 – He faces the wrath of the Hantu Tetek.
