    If it's comedy and silent, the comedy should be exclusively the result of the actor's actions. Don't bother with intertitles.

    Just a guy getting into a precarious situation and all that that entails would be great. It can be simpler than you think. A guy trying to fix his broken car and everything going wrong, a man trying to comb his hair, but a strand keeps popping out, etc. The more outlandish it becomes for the situation, the better. Maybe he gets ticked off and smears glue all over his head. Watch some of Charlie Chaplin's silent stuff for ideas.

    The simple solution is watch TV commercial they have many factors of silent element in them.
    Don't see any point of giving you ideas as other peoples ideas always have a different vision than you.:apple:

    I once did a short film but it was more an scene of a couple forgiving themselves. It was just about looks, eye expressions, moving hands and a kiss. The music and photography was key. The music was the one doing the talking.
