    ok so the project is that i have to film a narrative story, little to no dialogue, 1-2 mins long. So simple and basic. Its a video editing excersize, but we have to come up with our own story to cut.

    I have a few ideas, they are boring but completely do-able. Problem is, 2 of our crew ditched. So its just me and this other dude. So my main idea doesnt work because we now have only room for 1 cam op and 1 actor... so my ideas no have to be a solo shot. My other ideas are too simple

    I need some inspiration from a fresh perspective because im seriously lacking motivation on this lol.

    Can anyone help with some ideas? some thoughts on a story with 1 actor, limited/no dialgue...

    Do a mime routine, look some up on youtube. Bonus... you can use video editing techniques for magic tricks.

    i only like to display stuff im proud of, so if it turns out pretty decent ill hook it up

    but see this is an editing project, the filming is just so we had something to edit in post
