Help! Need a 16mm short film idea

I have a 3-5 minute film I need to shoot basically tomorrow, and I have no idea what to shoot. Its a final project for a class that I am taking now. I'll be shooting 16mm, but I'll be throwing it into FCP later, so that gives me a lot of room as well. Does anybody have any ideas of what I could shoot. I'm kind of limited to just the camera and the tripod, and my campus/downtown areas. Please, any ideas are helpful.
Thank you

Chase scenes are always good. That way you don't have to focus as much on lines or the story just a lot of action. Plus you can keep the story simple yet have some challenging shots in there.

Get creative with shots. When your shooting think to yourself. Is this shot interesting? Does it work?
