  1. Hello everyone, I am a fine arts student living in Paris, France and I am about to embark on my second short film journey. I need your help to solidify my idea, to get that punch line that shapes the film so that the rest may unravel. My theme is "Traces". This can usually be taken into so many directions but the one I think would be interesting is body traces. Such as skid marks on your knee as a child playing soccer; to a teenager getting a hickey, to a person battling depression and cutting themselves, to a man nicking himself shaving, to a woman having a red cheek from getting slapped by her abusive husband, etc... I want to try to stay away from cliches though; and I envision it building up to a big ending. A lot of artsy films I've seen that have to timeline and just move are interesting, but at some point you feel like "okay I get it" and you turn it off before its finished. That's not what i want my audience to feel. I want my audience to be compelled to watch till the end. And that's what I'm having trouble with; finding that punch line. If you can lend me your beautiful minds to try to help me achieve this, i would really appreciate it. PS: if you feel you have a better idea related to my theme other than body traces, please share! All your ideas are valuable to the process. Thank you so much! Carole Dana
