Each person will post a story idea based  upon plot elements from the above user. They will then also post plot elements, repeat.

The idea is to get the basis of a film, not a full script or anything.... like "there is a guy who doesn't know what to do with his  life and decides to become a professional cheeseburger eater and  then meets his future wife".

Quote
There is a guy who dies and someone else searches for the clues to his killer and discovers it was suicide by hacking his emails.

Plot Elements:
-Man, unsure of life
-Cheeseburgers
-Love, happily ever after

Quote
there is a guy who doesn't know what to do with his† life and decides to become a professional cheeseburger eater and† then meets his future wife

Plot elements.......

Anyway, you get the idea.

You will post THREE Plot elements for the next person to use. Smiley

For use of the plot elements, you can do anything you want as long as it makes sense. You can stretch them... within reason. These elements can be anything from objects to people, to whatever.

GO!


Last Note: These will then be up for grabs, if you actually want to use one for a script/film. Would be  nice for both the plot element supplier and story concept guy to get credit though, perhaps.

The story of an abused child who is locked in a closet and all he can hear is a pendulum clock ticking, ticking... ticking... The outside world is, at first, unaware of his situation.

This is the remake of the failed Mario Brothers film. Their characters have been altered slightly to fit the film. Two farmer brothers embark on a journey and learn new skills and fight new enemies from robots to mushrooms in this epic adventure.

This halloween adventure begins pleasently enough, but soon a group of trick-or-treaters dressed as Pirates is kidnapped by a witch after she offers them chocolates.

A man pushes a big red button, which drops him into a small black room. "Where am I?" He wonders.

He must use his wits to survive the lack of food.

Joe, a pitiful tean with no life to speak of, walks down the street in hopes that he will get home without incident. Of course he does not get his wish when he trips over something unmistakably resembling a severed hand. He picks it up only to turn and be attacked by a mob armed only with mops. They scream at him telling him to give the hand of John Lennon back, and with nowhere to run, he readies himself for a fight. Little does he know what powers the hand will bring him.

A filmmaker, down on his luck sips lemonade while thinking about the problems with his career. He watches everyone else in the swimming pool, and his exlusion from this is a metaphor for his exclusion from the film industry in this emotional short.

This one guy named Funk lives back east.  He loves to climb fig trees and then eat the figs he finds.  Then after an exhausting day of climbing and eating he goes home and sleeps with his teddybear

Even our math teacher could have figured out that some plants won't survive growing next to the ocean.

NOTE: I know my last post didn't show it, but these are supposed to be like synopsises of movie plots. Smiley



After the biggest hurricane on earth hit the 6 populated  continents, people were forced to live in underground cities to avoid the danger of disease and chaos above.

Alfred's sister put a small pencil into the DVD burner.  He got very frustrated when his computer started making stange noises when rebooting.
