Hey man, I appreciate the tag.
Some of the people you tagged might still check in at camp but not very often as of late. I was just stopping by myself and thought I’d say hi.
As to what you’re trying to do, I wish you the best of luck. Making a fan film is very hard. It’s possible though so don’t be discouraged.
In your shoes I’d start small working on a few things at the same time. You need a script, you need to find places you can shoot it, you need to do some camera tests and workout how your going to handle lighting. Playing Jason will be the easy part.
As for a script, Never Hike Alone is the best example. Keep it simple but you can expand the cast, no more than 3 people as characters that you follow to the camp (assuming that’s where it takes place), assume 2 will die and pick deaths that are film able. Other secondary characters can add weight to a story. It’s easy enough to have an older man or woman play a sheriff standing over a bloody sheet covered body or as a coroner covering said body and telling someone ‘He’s back!’.
Make the girl the hero and final girl, she doesn’t have to physically beat Jason. Set an expectation in people’s minds early, using the above example of a sheriff or coroner, have them state he never enters a specific place. Could be a house near the lake or the graveyard, locals would have a different understanding of Jason now than they did back in the eighties and nineties.
Here’s an idea that’s pretty simple....
Imagine if kids (young adults) have started going out to crystal lake and daring him to get them before they can make it out to the Graveyard, the Sheriff and Coroner can talk over a body of the last person who failed. The three who go out maybe one of them doesn’t know that’s what’s going to happen (the final girl), I mean they (the other 2) don’t think it’s real. Of course Jason will show up before anything really naughty can occur and then it really is a race for the Graveyard.
If you include Shift/Morph, you could have them split up and when one of them gets to the graveyard gets killed anyway, you establish a rule people believe and then dispel it by having it not be true. The second runner, the girl can go for help and get to it in the nick of time. (Close with the Sheriff pointing out they keep running to the wrong Graveyard and that his mothers grave is else where.
Anyway, there’s an idea, hope it helps.
