The BFG blows a dream into the room of Agatha Trunchbull. Dream: Winning gold in the hammer throw at the Olympics. Room: She is far too big for the bed she is in. She sleeps clutching a trophy. On the floor are papers. The one on top reads: AA Hotel Inspector’s Report.
7) Image title: n/a
The BFG peers down at an old, gilded copy of Nicolas Nickleby by Charles Dickens. He sits outside one of the hotel’s bedroom windows using the light from the room to read. A little girl sits next to him.

The Black Mountains. The BFG stocks up on dreams after a busy night. He stands absolutely still with a large net. On the ground is an open suitcase and empty glass jars.
10) Image title: The End
The BFG has returned home to Windsor Great Park. The giant door of his special house is closed. On it, a plaque reads:
Sophie and Queen is always welcoming here
- The Royal Dream-Blower
A beam of multi-coloured light shoots out of the top of his flat-roofed house and into the night’s sky. The silhouette of the BFG’s head can be seen in a third-floor window lit by a warm yellow light.

Hi Jason, whats the budget? Cheers
Quick question for clarification, how much detail do you want on the images eg solid b&w silhouette or shaded? Also do you want to replicate the film versions or the Quentin Blake versions?
