So I have a project due for my Visual Media class and its making up your own movie and then creating a black and white movie still picture of the climax of the movie. Basically it is kind of like with Titanic the moment they are by the railing looking out over the sea. Right now I'm kind of stuck with what Iw ant to do because it can't be like any movie or television show and anything I'm thinking of had to deal with something I've seen previously so I decided to see if myLot could help throw out some basic ideas for to brainstorm around. The thing is - I have to be in the shot, so a bit of background - I'm a female college student.

Can this project be based roughly from anything in written form that has never been made into film form? I have a great idea for you if that's the case.. let me know :)

That should be fine. I'll have to tweak it up a bit but just changing the setting/time I can easily do that.

Basic Idea: Girl moves from west coast to east coast/midwest with her parents and three of her four brothers. The girl is quite smart and was popular, but now has trouble making friends. In her classroom she sees a lovely looking boy, but to the boy no one else exists. He does not talk, he does not laugh, smile or show any expression. Curious about the boy, she begins to talk to her two new friends and becomes rather obsessed with him. It is through her new friends that she learns the boy is not autistic per se and has an IQ in the genius range. Determined to learn the reason behind his solidarity, she along with one of her friends begin to include the boy into some of their fun and routines, and he begins to help them with their trig and calculus work.. all remaining seemingly emotionless and silent. One night, the girl realizes that the "disturbed" boy is actually reacting to her and her friends. She is determined to push him to reveal the reasons for behavior - a move that almost costs him his life. I won't reveal the rest unless you're interested, but it has a GREAT deal to do with child psychology.. Send me a private msg if you're still interested, lemme know exactly what you need and when because I would have to script and condense it.
