Haven't posted here in a bit, but just made my way back since I haven't been too busy lately.
I'm doing a short for a film festival called "Stop to Smell the Roses", emphasizing just that. I've been trying to film scenes representing busyness, including large volumes of traffic, fast-paced cuts of newspaper headlines documenting the poor US and World economy, and time lapsed footage of people walking in NYC at Times Square.
Could any of you offer any more symbols of the busy and stressful world? I'd love to hear your input and consider it for use in my film. I'm thinking of filming various For Sale and Foreclosure signs.
Also, I was wondering how you'd end a film like this? What would you use in contrast to the busy/stressful world? I perhaps though a simple still shot of a chair, lamp, and book in a living room... since books usually easy my stress.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks folks.
