Reply To: I need help with ideas for a short film


OP, my ideas are prob not good for you. I’m underground. My first film I made in ’75 they banned from showing at the final in school.

My problem is the opposite of yours. Too many projects and ideas. I never get how people lack ideas. Almost every day they pop up. Or every couple weeks at the latest. But my ideas are short subject. Not long movies.

OP, expose yourself to all sort of stimuli…art, plays, movies, books, magazines, museums. You just never know where inspiration comes from.

Do you have a story at all? Even a rough idea? If so, start a storyboard and keep refining it to see how it looks.

Good luck!
