So in my Production class, we are given freedom to create any kind of film we want for a final project, as long as it uses the equipment, software, and techniques we learned in the class. Problem is I have no idea what to make. Help me brainstorm some ideas? The catch is I will have only five hours to shoot, and one week to edit it, but close to two months for pre-production. Here's the actual assignment: -Assignment #5: Individual Film Project- "This project gives you the opportunity to make a film of your own choosing. Please consider experimenting with form and content to some extent, pushing your own boundaries within filmmaking. This would coincide with our discussions about new forms and experimental narrative, documentary and avant-garde filmmaking. With this in mind, it is very important that your ideas make sense for the kind of “story” you’re telling or the type experience you want to create for your viewer. You will be graded on how successful you are in maintaining consistency and control throughout your entire film. Your final project may be in any style you choose, but it must demonstrate what you have learned in class, (shooting/camera technique, editing, sound design, and lighting). Try to keep basic idea simple. It’s a better strategy to express one thing clearly and richly rather than try to say everything you have to say about life in one short film. The sound must have at least two tracks. Please bear in mind that the effort you expend on your sound track will have considerable impact on the grade for this project. Films must be under 6:minutes." Thanks for the help. [EXIF data available.
