Idea 1: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
A small perfume shop is located on a busy market street. It is a sunny summer day and the sunlight bounces off all the glass around the shop. It is an open space, surrounded by shelves full of all sorts of little bottles, boxes and exotic items. The counter is facing the front door and behind it is a shelf full of glass bottles. There is a golden scale on it. It looks like a pharmacy rather than a perfume shop. There are baskets on the ground next to the counter, full of herbs and flowers. There is no one in the shop but you can hear the chatter of people in the background, birds chirping and glass clinging. There are no windows so the only light that enters the shop is through the reflection of the glass jars around. There is a silhouette of a fountain entering the shop. You can see the shadows of two cranes spitting water. Everything looks so peaceful, it smells nice and the chime hanging from the front door creates an enchanting sound that penetrates the space. There are two doors at the back of the shop hidden in the shadow. One is closed and the other one is leading to a staircase.
We walk around the shop, exploring its little corners full of adventure and mystery and head to the staircase. But when we reach the entrance, the light starts fading. It gets cold and mouldy. We reach the top of the staircase and we enter a room. Everything is complete opposite of downstairs. We enter a dark room. This is the laboratory where the perfume fragrances are extracted and prepared. It is very dark and the only light revealing the silhouettes of objects is from the candles lit around the room. Is there anyone in here?
Idea 2: The Shadow of the Wind
There is a place, hidden within an old forgotten building. The doors are massive and create the impression that they hide something. They do. They hide a whole world of stories. The building is a secret library where books whisper and call for someone to release their souls. The massive building has a complex architecture and reveals a labyrinth of corridors and staircases. The light coming through a huge glass cupola in the middle of the building breaks the darkness. Under the glass cupola, in the center of the building an abandoned desk calls. There is a letter on top of it. What does is say?
