I'm making a 1-3 short minute film and I need some interesting ideas.

Requirements:
-Possible and practical (we have camera, props, sound and editing, that's all)
-No longer than 3 minutes.
-Interesting story
-Clever uses of micro features

Anyone want to share an idea?

Interesting. I don't have any ideas right now, but I'd advise not to do something too ambitious. By experience, in 1-3 minutes it's better to concentrate on one scene, a single emotion, 4-5 shots max. Otherwise it gets a bit too crowded and you loose focus.

A prime example is this incredible little jewel : http://vimeo.com/21362582
No words, one location, two actors, one action. Hell of powerfull.

Also check the movie "To each his own cinema" ("Chacun son cinéma" in french). It's a mix of short films of exactly 3 minutes each made by some of the greatest directors alive, from David Lynch to Gus Van Sant.

If you still can't find inspiration I might still have a few old scenarios taking dust in the basement if you want ;-)

I'd give you some suggestions but I need a theme. I have a few ideas for medieval short films, and I can link you to a whole 'book' of them that are quite interesting and can be used for 1-3 mins short films.
