So, I think I'm ready to do my first piece of scripted film since I've been editing film. I've always wanted to make a scripted film or a music video, but the two problems I always ran into were: 1) I could never write a good story, and 2) I could never find any actors. I now have some actors, but I'm having trouble writing a story. They say "write what you know", which would mean something about high school life, and I thought it would be really cool to set it in a different time period (like the '70s or the '90s). '70s would be easy because '70s style has come back, but it still would be hard trying to alter things such as electronics, cars, etc. '90s would be even easier, but not as fun. If I end up doing the '70s, how what sort of filters or generations could I apply to make it look like it was filmed in the '70s? That's about all I have: high school kids in the 1970's/1990's. Just about everything has been done on that topic, but I'm still trying to breathe some life into it. Any suggestions?
