With that in mind, I will cut to the chase. I have prepared a Log Line, Synopsis and treatment for a Faunus Rights Revolution film I was hoping to share with you. I also have a conceptual movie poster being commissioned as you read this and more content besides waiting in the wings for those interested. I'll let my writing speak for me now and would be honored to get a response, thanks for your time!
Faunus Rights Revolution
The Faunus Rights Revolution is a thematically charged action and war drama, centered around a trio of young Faunus fighting to save their people from persecution, deportation, and death at the hands of Humanity.
the world of Remnant, the Faunus face oppression and
deportation at the hands of humans. Three young heroes join the
resistance to defend their people.
Fifty years after the Great War that ended with the promise of peace and equality, the tides of oppression rise again. Faunus are forced from their homes and driven from their lands, consigned to the tiny desert island of Menagerie. In the face of this injustice, Sienna, a former mining debt slave, Kali, whose ancestral land was stolen away, and Ghira, a native of Menagerie, are united by the desire to protect their people from persecution, and join the resistance. Together, they will stare down the greatest kingdoms in the world to protect their people- and each other
Prologue (SEQUENCE ONE – Status Quo & Inciting Incident)
The hot summer sun shines through palm trees as a young boy with dark claws is drawn away from his work chopping wood to look across his home of Kuo Kuana.
The houses are rickety, and it looks somewhat sparsely inhabited. He grins when a boat comes limping into port, and abandons his chore to rush through the streets of the town.
He shouts about new arrivals to those he passes and skids to a halt at the base of the pier, where a robed Faunus with long dark hair stands waiting with a guard.
The boy is waving and shouting is cut off as his parent clasps his shoulder and says, quietly, “Not now, Ghira.”
Ghira is stunned as he takes in the people on the boat, tired, worn, huddled and sad. He asks why they are not happy to be there?
His parent explains that the journey would have been hard and how tiring leaving one’s home is, before moving to greet the newcomers. They are greeted as chieftain and are thanked as they offer their town’s hospitality.
Ghira overhears the new arrivals speak of death tolls on the travel and mention that “More will be coming, they won't have a choice.”
Ghira looks out to the sea with concern.
Within a pristine, mountainous forest, a large and prosperous settlement of Faunus live in in yurts and tents surrounding a forest temple and a small number of stone fortifications.
A young girl with braided black hair and cat ears walks through the village, greeting friends and family who answer her with statements like “Good morning, Kali” and "Hello Kali!".
Kali approaches the center of the temple. She smiles, offers a prayer to the ancestors and begins to place offerings, talking of strange human visitors from the nearby coast who came by that morning.
Kali's ears perk up and the sounds of arguing can be heard, words of land deals, purchases and broken promises ring out as the ones arguing insist they cannot leave their ancestral home only to be told their 'home' is Menagerie and that the land is owned by the kingdom of Mistral.
The Faunus argue that they may end up resisting and are chided for being upset, citing the Grimm as a threat and the importance of law and order in the kingdoms.
Kali sneaks around to watch the people arguing, worried, and sees armed guards with the human. She is pulled away by a senior Holy One and told not to worry and that everything will be fine.
A similar mantra of 'everything will be fine' is heard from a new voice, one more stressed and tense.
A small child is revealed being pulled along by an older Faunus out of an airship and into a dusty, rocky area surrounded with walls, boxy building and guards. She is tense and alarmed even though she is told the guards are here to protect them.
She argues that she can protect herself and is hushed harshly and told in a whisper that she never should have sought out that "Old fool Dios" and how Faunus like them who don't change with the times and cling to tradition make things harder for the rest of them.
Her expression hints that she does not believe this as she asks how long they are meant to help out at the mine before they can go back to Atlas.
She is told it will not be long, just until things "quiet down, Sienna".

This is just the log lines, synopsis and prologue, I have a complete Treatment ready at 89 pages, but cannot post it all at once and was hoping to gauge reactions before revealing the rest. I can also send it by private message or other methods if that is preferred.
Thank you again for your time.
