How To Get Short Film Ideas

I’ve been trying to get better at just getting started and doing projects even when I don’t have what I feel is my best idea. That is a good way to get nothing done. So in order to break out of that rut, I decided to head to an antique store to find something to spark some ideas. I came across this old phone and it reminded me of the one on my grandparent’s wall when I was a kid. The possibilities just started flowing and I had to get it.

Once I got it home, I just hung it on the wall and started filming. I added some sound design and some basic background anxiety and came up with this silly little short. I explain how I do each step in this video. It took me less than an hour to make the whole thing and it sparked many more new ideas that I’m already working on!
