    Maybe this thread, Short Film Ideas, help?

    And if not, you need to be more specific about what you actually want.

    Keep it simple. 5 minutes is a really short amount of time and with dialogue it becomes even shorter. Try to tell your story with emotion and pictures rather than obvious dialogue.

    What is the proposed function of the film?

    The genre is Fiction. I'm thinking something that has to do with high school

    Ok well pick something really simple. Keep dialogue to a minimum.

    Have you made any films before? What are you shooting on?

    Spend 4:30 showing a boy making a fabulous gift for a girl in order to impress and win her heart. At 4:31, show boy with completed gift running to catch the school bus she's on. At 4:36, show girl smiling as she sees boy headed for bus. Cut back to boy by 4:38, smiling at the girl yet not watching for traffic as he darts into the street. Have boy get hit by a van at 4:40, slow motion until about 4:45. Cut to horrified girl screaming behind bus window in slo-mo for another five seconds. Cut to black mid-scream, followed with fade-in of crying children SFX during credit roll.

    You can just put "wonderspark" in there for screenplay. :p
