Well this has completely stumped me . I can make a film in my sleep but "original" !!!! nothing is original these days . You guys got any ideas . I figured some of you must be budding film makers .
 
Oh and it has to be on the lighter of the film spectrum   . The rest of my class are going with the typical emo killing themselves movies.

Pick one of the 'seven basic plots' and go from there.

My boss and I once wanted to make a short film about Jesus coming back, and everybody being so cynical that nobody believed him. He gets put in a psychiatric ward for being delusional, has some sessions with a shrink and eventually the shrink convinces him that he's not Jesus. Jesus is then let out and becomes just another person amongst the masses.

Original?  
Ok, A cop is 3 days away from retirement is partnered with a reckless and cocksure rookie who's wild and reckless style is only tolerated because his antics usually work out to bust the bad guys.  The new rook starts dating a woman who has a young boy who mistrusts him at first but soon learns to trust the rook and they form a tight bond until the young boy and mother are kidnapped by a ruthless drug kingpin the two were investigating.  
 
The cops are stumped about the kidnapped victums location till the older partner's daughter hums a nursery rhyme that turns out to give away the location of the kidnapped mother and son.  They track down the kindpin and his evil gang and kill them all, but the rook gets shot and almost dies before they older partner kills the kingpin and frees the mother/son.  A touching moment unfolds between the young boy and rook, and he passes out.  He wakes in the hospital, and the old partner decides not to retire because he likes the rook as a partner too much.  FIN
 
The movie title is "Cliche"

#15 Posted by Damian (1538 posts) -

A comedic drama that makes a martyr of the most villainous dude you can imagine. 
An action movie about popcorn. 
A thriller about a house-cat's plot to kill its master's child. 
 
OR ... Think of the title first. Then see what comes up. 
 
"Bolokin's Dream Nut", "Kart Blanche of Death", "Soup and Me" 
 
... You'll figure it out.

OK I got one.  How about an alien who is invisible to the visible (on Earth) light spectrum and his misadventures in a college campus.  Oh no, his vomit is invisible and the dean slipped on it and broke his neck!  Watch as he sneaks into the girls' dormitory with a videocamera!  Finally, he teaches everyone the true love of understanding and acceptance.

How about a young woman's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk?
 
Oh and whatever you do, no matter which genre you choose, the twist has to be 'wifearm'.

A child is cursed from birth with an exceptionally large ego. His mother died in child birth, because the child got angry, said "Nine fucking months?!" and killed her. Fast-forward to present day. This child is now in high school. Years of what he thought was name-calling and hazing(they were actually just compliments) have caused young Kornwell Westberg to be friendless and lonely. One night when he is sleeping, he dreams of a world where his curse has been lifted, and all his problems had been slated. At that exact moment, God was about to press the big red button and kill Kornwell, but it was April Fools day and Jesus ran up and kicked God in the nuts, causing him to press the big blue 'save this kid, miracle style' button. Kornwell then goes out to change his name and be the self-proclaimed Best There Ever Was/Will Be.

@turbomonkey138:
Best advice I've had is that all stories have already been told, but nobody has told it your way. 
 
If you have interesting characters and good storytelling, then you've got something.  E.g., The Princess Bride, standard story, but amazingly told. 
 
Anyway, good luck!

The film should be about a guy who thinks he's Michael Cera. In a strange coincidence, his best friend thinks he's a movie trailer announcer. They're a perfect match for each other. One sheepishly smiles then looks confused while the other explains what's going on.
 
Everyone around them hates this, so they try and convince the main character that he's not Michael Cera. All kinds of zany mad cap things go down exactly like they would in a feel-good teen comedy. It's like they're all living in a movie trailer and they can't escape, so really it's a horror film.
 
The film becomes exceedingly sinster when the kid who thinks he's Michael Cera starts to question why his friends are so adamant about him not being Michael Cera. Perhaps they're Michael Cera. There can only be one though and it has to be him. He has to dispose of them quickly before they in turn make other people Michael Cera, because Michael Cera is actually a virus.
 
By the end of film, it's turned into a zombie flick, just instead of zombies it's Michael Cera. You're going to need to get a lot of shorts and headbands.

I'm sorry, but if you are asking for other peoples Ideas how is that original?  
 
I'm being too cynical, how about a super hero film where the main charachter's super power is the power to make people orgasm by pointing at them.

So very glad to hear that. So many film students go straight for suicide. It's amazing how many of them immediately gravitate towards that. Everyone thinks they're a goddamned tortured artist or something. You're making a fucking movie! Cheer the fuck up! Anyway, good for you man. So many people try to make something "original", or different, but they don't take the time to notice that it's exactly the same as everything else. I wish you the best of luck.

Those aren't films. That's self-indulgent shit.

It's about a killer robot driving instructor who travels back in time for some reason and he's got a heartbreaking decision to make about whether his best friend lives...or dies.   And, here's the kicker, his best friend is a talking pie.  Ron Howard once expressed an interest, but I'll let you see what you can do with it.

directors and producers actors etc etc make movies written by other people all the time.  
not everyone needs to write, produce, direct, and star in a film for it to be original. so you are right, you were being to cynical.  
 
and im pretty sure dr. manhattan had that power.

That MIchael Cera one Hamst3r posted could actually be pretty funny, just don't go with the zombie ending, it's funnier if it's just the two guys slowly growing more insane.
