Looking Ahead…

So for this upcoming project, I have very little idea on what to do. I want it to be creative and interesting, but I’m having trouble coming up with some storylines that would be!

Stories related to the 80s can be anything really! I think that’s what makes it so daunting and overwhelming. The ideas are endless, but which one’s are the best? Here’s what I have so far:

  1. A story of an 80s movie, told as if it’s a video diary. So Breakfast Club, we’d choose one character, and tell the story from just that one person’s point of view. With Back to the Future, instead of following Marty’s side of the story, we’d follow one of his parents.
  2. Discussing 80s music and it’s relevance today. What are more well-known songs that have influenced us versus lesser-known songs? For example, I think Queen has continued to make an impact in today’s world, as the lead singer has made an impact socially and the music itself is still often used in movies.
  3. I think it would be fun to come up with an original story that takes place in the 80s. I don’t know the exact storyline, but I think it would be fun to come up with our own story. Maybe something scary or supernatural??

That’s all I got right now, but I like what I have so far!

  1. These are all great ideas. Having unlimited options is definitely a problem. The first idea, to change perspective on an 80s story, or to tell a secondary character’s story, is especially good because it creates a focus and gives a starting point.
