I am taking Screenwriting this semester online and one of our first assignments was to create a one-minute movie with only still images and sound. Having a love for storyboards, I was naturally drawn to drawing all of my still images by hand. Here's the catch— I only had two days.
Coming up with ideas is a very simple task for me. I don't always go with the first thing that pops in my head. I do always go with an idea that won't go away. I have plenty of those ideas stored in the back of my mind ready to be created. There are ideas that are easily dismissed off hand, then there are ideas that just won't go away— even when you dismiss them. There are usually good reasons for it, but I never really know why until I complete the project and get a good look at it.
