You can learn camera techniques and you can get your hands on all the coolest hi-def gear and you can apply nifty visual effects in post-production, but whether you're shooting your films with a Red One Digital Imaging System or with a Fisher-Price PixelVision Camera, the basis for your project is still the story you're telling. Without that fundamental piece being worth something, all the bells and whistles in the world won't make your film any good.
So how do we come up with good ideas that are worth telling? How does one even begin to think of a story? Sometimes we just need a little push. Below I'm posting some images I found online. I'm posting them without comment. Maybe they'll spark some creative ideas for you. Maybe they will give you ideas for shots.
What's your idea?
