Help with Short film ideas?:

(If this is the wrong place to post this, I apologize and ask if someone would kindly point me to the correct place to do so)

My plan for this Summer is to spend it making short films, I'm hoping to make at least ten. The problem with this is that I only have three ideas, and among those only one is written.

1: Based on the Midnight Game Creepypasta. This is the one written.

2: A Fake trailer about a guy in a sort-of Groundhogs Day Loop, reliving the same week of his life over and over again until he pretty much goes insane from it.

3: A first-person perspective film that you don't know is a first-person perspective until the end. It takes place in a zombie apocalypse, we watch a survivor as she/he moves around and exposition about the backstory of the apocalypse is given through sound snippets from something or through pictures and written documents the camera pans over occasionally. The short ends with the perspective being revealed to be a zombie when they attack the survivor.

The shortest one would be about three minutes, and I doubt I'd manage to make one any longer than ten minutes.

So I'm asking for brainstorming, for ideas. If you have an idea that you think I could make, I'd love to hear it.

No, this is the right place, since you're asking for general writing help.

It looks like you have a horror theme going on. Perhaps you could make a Cosmic Horror short film? I suggest you check out the Fear Mythos for ideas.

Well, I was aiming for a black comedy on 2, but it does still have horror elements to it.

Thanks for the idea, I'll make sure to check that out for inspiration.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
