Thanks for the interest!
First, let me post the theme that my film has to be based on...
"THE LIVING SKIES"
Definition of skies: anything (skies, insects, clouds, weather, Superman, UFOs, architecture, humans, animals, etc etc) that you see up in the air that is higher than my single-story ranch house. for reference, see a single-story ranch house in your own neighorhood.
So, that's what I have to work with.
I'm sure allot of people are just going to shoot cool skies, set it to music and be done with it.
BTW, the film has to be three minutes or less.
So, my idea is to juxtapose scenes from our everyday lives. Things we consider "living" with scnes of the sky.
But, I want it to be more than that. Words help create images. You can read a book and see it in your mind. Poetry is a dance of words. Poetry can take an image of nice fluffy clouds and breathe new life into it. Poetry can make the clouds come to life. Poetry can make this film so much more than nice white puffy clouds set to music.
Oh, and I also have only three weeks to get it done and we're half way into the first week.
But, that's what makes the challenge so much fun.
I'm still trying to flesh out the idea so I'm open to suggestions. I thought of making the entire narration a poem. I also thought of starting a story about how we talk of life in human terms and how we assign verbs and adjectives to inanimate objects.
I've thought about allot of things. But the thing I do best is to shoot good footage.
So, that's why I need your help. I couldn't write my way out of a paper bag.
Sorry for the long winded reply but I'm hoping someone can make sense of the ramblings and figure out what I'm trying to say.
