So I have assessment coming up, and we have to make a short 2min film.
There are a few criteria: It has to be 2mins long, needs to be a three act narrative structure and cannot use more than 20 shots.
It also needs to fall under one of the following themes: Chase, Melancholy, Fear, Excitement, Surprise.
I have the basic idea in mind: The Problems With Dating Carnie Folk. Basically a normal guy starts dating a mime, who drives him crazy with all her miming.
Now the way I was going to finish it was by her becoming pregnant and having a clown baby [thereby making it clear she's been cheating on him with her clown friend.] This also applies to the theme of surprise.
But I'm not sold on the ending: I like the general idea, but am trying to think of another way to end this short 'cautionary tale'.
So I thought, while I went about trying to figure out an ending, that I might throw this one open to people who very much have messed up minds on this board just for inspiration's sake!
