movie ideas anyone?? Answered

Picture of

Hi I'm a filmmaker (i work for Stop Motion Pictures) and am really looking for movie ideas because right now I have nothing! I have movie making block. Any idea I choose to use you will be credited. It will probably not be made in a while I'm working on getting my camera and tools. Please share any ideas! Even stupid ones!

I am assuming that you are not using stop motion for this one. But my idea is to make a recreation of the heist in "Ocean's 11" except instead of a casino, you use Dave & Busters! Or make it into a "21" type movie with counting cards. Since you are a ninth grader, you could do an escape from detention. I would love to do that one! Not that I get detentions at all. (Remember, I'm a geek). Or my second choice would be a huge paintball war and incorporate the opening scenes in "Iron Man" wherein Tony gets kidnaped by terrorists and is forced to build a huge weapon. Since the Instructables community is so smart, they could all relate to him! I certainly hope this helps. Keep making films and you'll get better at preproduction. -M4

I just thought of another idea. A happy cop and family man, named john, comes home one night to find his family dead on the floor of his house, who were killed by this small time mobster. Now, ten years later hes working as a homicide detective for the NYPD who's addicted to alcohol and cigarettes, until one day his boss assigns him to a case of the murder of a big time gangster. As he looks into the case it turns out the murderer of the gangster was also the killer of his family and is now the biggest mob boss in the city, running the criminal underworld. So, john goes rouge from his police department and tries to hunt down his family's killer and find peace and justice but the mob boss sends up an army of criminals from the underworld to stop him. Now john must fight for his life on his bloody and brutal quest for the truth, justice and vengance

NASA land a robot on Saturn's
Moon Enceladus to analyse and collect ice and rock specimens and then send
the specimens back to earth. The robot
appears to malfunction during landing on the planet due to technical failures, later
it is found that the robot has landed without crashing or getting too badly
damaged. The operating system of the robot was changed at the last second to
work around technical issues but nobody at NASA did it. The robot landed in a different
place to target where there is more chance of finding life.The robot does not follow all instructions from NASA
and does its own thing, NASA try to abort and self destruct the robot but it
does not, some samples are returned to earth and are stored in a laboratory. Back
on earth, a mosquito lands on a specimen of Enceladus
then flies out of the laboratory window.A mentally ill recluse gets
bitten by the mosquito and first his personality changes [lawn mower man] then
he metamorphosis’s into a Alien [The Fly]

so the alien reproduces using fly's and metamorphosing another animal into it's self. metamorphosing time is faster each generation so second generation takes only 30 seconds.

Buy me a beer and i'll add some more to the story.

so a dead alien propagates through the food chain and causes all life to metamorphosis even the vultures that eat the dead alien. A spider catches a mozzie that bit the dead alien and whooo a massive mutant spider! The thermodynamic efficiency of food to becoming alien body mass in near 100%. Mozzies don't bite a living alien for some reason.

The end of the world is nigh

I've got the start of the film and the ending sorted:

Start:

Male scientist turns up for work, a very attractive female colleague adjust his tie and pinches his arse, she then gets an official final written warning disciplinary hearing for sexual harassment by her grumpy female manager.

End:

Both scientists end up alone in the safety of the artificial sealed huge biosphere, grumpy female manager ends up a 10th generation alien outside.

Here is the start of a film.

It is the summer, two guys plan to go camping and trekking
with a overnight stop over in the middle of nowhere in a tent. They go to the
shops and buy tins of potatoes and stew and some beers for dinner, and tins of
beans for breakfast. They sort all of
their kit out to minimalism ready for the trip but their drunken flatmate takes
away the tin opener out of their rucksack and does not return it. They start a
long day trekking and near the end of the day pass by a fenced off crop field
signed Defence experimental genetics. They realise that the tin opener is
missing so they decide to go back a short way to the crop field and try to steal some of
the crops they passed having boiled vegetables for dinner, the crops looked
like butternut squashes and courgettes. They cook and eat the vegetables, after
eating the food they have powerful hallucinations and telepathic communication
abilities and the rest of the film is just madness.

Hi! im a filmmaker, a young one, and I am making an awesome movie called "Freecloud" It is about a man named Mike Freecloud who has mutant powers, talking to animals, running fast, and sensing danger. for crimes unknown to the audience, (they are revealed in a prequel called "Badass") he is banished to live in the woods on his own, using his wits to survive. but the antagonists, The Triplets are some evil scientists who have mutant powers as well, are hunting down mutants and killing them, and then taking their DNA to make a powerful mutant breed, and Mike is next on their list. so they sand a cyborg hunter after him(sounds like Terminator, although it isn't) to kill him and retrieve his DNA. but then SSPA (Secret Society Protection Agency) Intervenes and saves him. they then take him to their HQ where the hunter attacks them. they get away and end up in a big battle and kill the hunter, with many casualties. after that there is a sad funeral and after that, the leader of SSPA, Hannah Pixel, stays behind, and reveals a new character, and a plot twist, for the sequel...
