    Default Any ideas for a 5 min short film for class?

    Just looking for some advice/tips on what I should do. There is no verbal communication in the project. The only idea I have come up with is something loosely based on No Country For Old Men where there is one guy who finds a sack of money and is escaping another person, haven't thought of what music would be playing.

    Any other film ideas I can add to the branstorm?

    Could you give us some idea of how much time you can give to this project. 48 hours? Ten weeks? What locations and resources do you have access to?

    If you'd like to tell someone else's story, how about this one: A man finds that his cellphone doesn't work. Flustered, he goes to an enclosed public phone booth. That phone doesn't work either. He finds that the door is jammed. Time passes by, he is still trapped. A truck appears. Our hero is relieved. Unluckily he isn't rescued. The phone booth is picked up by the truck with the protagonist still inside. He bangs on the door but can't escape as the truck hits the highway. More time passes by on the freeway. Then the man sees another truck carrying another phone booth containing another victim. Eventually there is a convoy of trucks with phone booths. Eventually we see a road tunnel up ahead. The tunnel swallows up the trucks, booths and people... as a truck leaves the tunnel in the opposite direction with a phone booth, but without anybody trapped inside...

    That would defititnetly catch the eye of your teacher and fellow students, though it would be a bit of a challange unless you are skilled with effects software.
