One of my major assessments in Media this year is to make a short film.



We have to hand our statments of intention within the next few weeks and I have absolutely no idea what to do.



I want it to be a silent film (no dialogue, just music)



I want to it to move people in a happy feel good way, like Pyrowill's did.



It has to be between 5-10 minutes with a M maxiumum rating.



Any ideas?



Thanks,

Hmm...Mob Movie? No...wants it to be a feel good...A film about random acts of kindness over a 24 hour period and how those small acts (Holding a door open, giving some change) goes on to created large good things through a chain effect!

If you strap a piece of buttered toast, butter side up, to a cats back, would the cat get stuck in mid air if thrown due to quantum indecision?

Do a healthkick film to send to the Healthways govt lot as a eat more fruit and veg. Well thats what I want to do anyways.



Watch Elastas vid in the fruit shop with all the fab juggling and make it with that great feel. Juggle and eat lots of fruit n stuff and do that thing with the cabbage. Thats one of my fav bits.



Thats my articulate bit (and thank Elasta and Co at the end for inspiration)

Haha that looks like fun! But I'd like my film to have some form of moral of the story or message in it.

Do you have any more ideas?

I kind of think that I should have posted this in social chat or something, hardly anyone goes to the help board!

I'd really like to make something about firetwirling, juggling etc....and include fire skipping ropes because that would be awesome and they are fun. But there needs to be a message....or some purpose. Not just 5 minutes for firetwirling if you know what I mean.

We re-enacted a friend of a friends rendevous with a traffic cone and a motorbike.
moral of the story - looks out for evil cones..

I've always wanted to make a backward movie which causes you to think! Using loads of enigma codes so to keep audience attention then at end it sums it all up!

Do abstract shots of the subject so they are obscure with fast cuts and tracking adn stuff!

Could work with fire poi adn things but not sure on meaning!

Good luck!

Life is short!
So lets leave a mark,
for people to remember!
