Now that the 8mm Silent Short Film is a wrap, it’s time to start brainstorming for the next project; 8-10 minute Short Film with audio, shot on any camera of our choosing, allowing for the use of editing software if desired. As a writer, having dabbled in the art of screen writing, I like to start from a simple concept and build from there. Usually, i have a plethora of ideas, boiling over in my brain, but for this project i am coming up a little short. My crew and i agreed to meet on Wednesday with a handful of ideas each. In order to accomplish this goal, i went in search of inspirational quotes that might lend themselves to my task. So far here are a few quotes, broad and diverse, all pointing in a similar direction.
