RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

ideas for short film

So this summer I and my bestfriend are going to do short films but we're out of ideas and that's pretty bad. If you have any ideas suggest .

Explosions, explosions, car chases, guns, more explosions. And hot women.

For anyone who remembers me going on an archive binge: Thank you all. I know I ended it being a drama queen, I don't really agree with the ideology anymore, and I'm really not the same person I was (I went through a neopagan phase!) but still this site was the first online community I was in.

Some kind of horror film, Blair Witch style, Slenderman style. They're relatively easy to make, cheap budget, and if you're good, you can make a very, very good movie.

ideas for short film

The downfall of amateur movies is when they try to emulate serious, professional movies. Like trying to make it dramatic, by copying techniques that professionals use, except doing it really poorly, and with bad acting, and a bad script... It's just a trainwreck. Don't try to emulate professional movies, or be dramatic like a Shakespeare play, it will fail miserably. Instead, realize you're an amateur, and completely own up to amateurism. Does that make sense?

I was really impressed when I first saw the slenderman videos on youtube, because it was so cheap, but it was so good, for how cheap it was.

You should try to do a series or something, instead of a full movie all at once.

RIP GORE GOROTH

Thank you guys Smile
My bestfriend suggested to do series , and I had a general idea about what doing , like Desu said about horror, or something about mistery... I think it's pretty good ideas since I saw some on youtube, that type of videos.
And Desu I understand your point Smile we want to do something good that envolves a good acting and a good script

Guy Debord and Bertolt Brecht, yo.
Sure, Brecht was probably too apologetic to Stalin, and Debord was pretty weird and drunk, but yeahhhh mannnn.

RE: ideas for short film

Thanks for all the suggestions we will think about them and darkmind15 that's the type of video we will probably do but not about a character that would be abused but about maybe a evil angel that shows up inexpected in a house ...our first video would be about horror but we're not sure

My post was surely considered when isolatedsystem faced a series of various emotionally exhausting tasks to put my suggestion into practice.
