    For my film class we have to make a 2-3 minute film that involves a conflict and a box.

    I was thinking of a guy who got the wrong delivery box and then a chase starts. IDK kinda lost.

    My vote is for Pulp Fiction style. I once did a similar shoot for my wife's media class. We had a chase scene, sequenced the heck out of shots. Tons of cut aways and closeups of surrounding objects to help build an environment. Word of advice. Think a lot of quick short shots, link them to the action, cut, cut , cut.... In the end, put a light in a brief case. As the actor opens the case it will send this mysterious glow on there face... then cut to credits... leave everyone wondering what was in the case.

    I think it's a great idea, as it's an idea versus a style (like Pulp Fiction or Seven). Come up with the idea first, then pick a style that fits.

    You need to do some brainstorming on this. Who is chasing whom (is the delivery person chasing someone because he didn't get a signature? Did the person get a wrong package, say, a wedding dress? Did he get a box of cocaine or a severed head and the police is chasing him? Or gangsters? Or both? Is is a gaggle of Benny Hill bikini clad dancers chasing him off a cliff?)

    You've got a germ of an idea and you just need to flesh it out.
