The unspeakable gift is an indescribable present which cannot be expressed by words. It is given to us for free having a very sentimental value. It could be the person of your mother, father, a teacher or a long lost friend. It could be a token or a priceless thing, skills and talent. It could be peace or freedom, love, care and even life given to you by way of sacrifice or death.
This theme may not be limited to a specific genre since we encourage every writer to be creative and imaginative producing a twist masterpiece of inspiring, humorous, moving and heartwarming story that leads into a significant lesson of gratitude.
Here are some examples of short films and commercials that will give you ideas on how to construct your story. Please watch them and continue reading below;
*These short films and commercials didn't reach 10 minutes, some are even 3. But the message is very clear and the combination of clips along with a perfect musical score are arranged in a very compressed yet spontaneous sequence.
I advise the writers not to concentrate in the dialogue alone which sometimes misled to irrelevant sequences. The writers should first give their careful planning to the creative construction of the story. Some of these stories are mostly consist of narrations with just few active dialogues.
Our goal for this social media competition is for our audience to love the film with just a quick view of it and would even watch it over and over again.
