    Amateur filmmaker here, attempting to make a documentary, wondering if anyone had good ideas. I'm not talking documentaries on topics like Global Warming, Cigarettes, Poverty, I'm talking sort of reality type documentary that would include me.

    Think "Catfish" (For those who have seen it) or "A Complete History Of My Sexual Failures" those type docs. Credit for input. I know I can count on some good ideas from you dudes, do me good (In a non-gay way) lol.

    I second this idea! You can go pretty deep into peoples lives with this very base.

    yeah you could do a lot with anger and the connections made would be very relevant to our society right now. could touch on road rage, substance abuse, mob mentality, psychological issues, etc. the only problem is that because it's such a broad topic it would take you forever to make it properly, you'd be better off narrowing it down to something specific.

    to make a documentary on anger, you would need to film angry people. and to make it an effective documentary they would need to be extremely angry people... i would choose some other topic to avoid those people.

    a friend of mine likes very spicy foods, hes going to attempt a challenge at a restaurant of the "deadly dozen" hot wings for the third time (hes completed it twice before, just trying to shave a minute off his time for the record), i might have to dust off the camera for that one.

    I'm currently making a documentary about why people don't take the time to watch documentaries. You'll never see it.

    Lol, good joke... [if it were to come out 3yrs ago.] Since 2008 documentaries have risen in sales/rentals in both retail stores, Blockbusters, Redbox, & Netflix by 6%, which is, in the movie industry, what we call a 'big hop'. 6% is equivalent to about 15,000 people in this industry per-quarter. But like stated, still funny.

    Ironically... also a good idea... 3yrs. ago.

    I'll let my dick know you think he's made a 'big hop' every year.

    Legitimately, you could do a documentary on the UIGEA and its effects, but it more than likely wouldn't include you. It would just be a documentary on a subject that doesn't get much attention, yet has impacted more than enough people to get some viewers.

    Isn't this site for 18+...? What door did you sneak in from? Lol.

    Hmm, I'm now thinking of making a documentary about the internet. How people consistently get owned for such ignorant comments, yet they continue to dig themselves a deeper hole with each reply, by using immature statements. Most including the words fuck you, bitch, cocksucker, or referring to they're own 'dick' as if anyone believed they had one. It seems as though every time I log onto a forum, or site, whether it be this one or simply Yahoo Answers, you find more & more children who just... lack intelligence in debates or arguments & lack the ability to see they're own immaturity. It seems the internet is getting taken over by kids... not just regular kids either, kids with no sense of realization. Of course, i do not refer to you in specific 'thecoc08' but just to use you as an example;

    "I'll let my dick know you think he's made a 'big hop' every year." - That is a great example of how children react when a previous post has irritated them. Instead of being 'mature' they resort to grabbing a shovel & burying themselves deeper into the ground with each word they spit. Pointless replies that have no relevance to the previous statement... got to love em!

    This thread is closed to 'thecoc08' [Get it now?] lol.

    Or is it? It is nice to know that post count to ease of offending ratio is still strong.

    Thanks for replying yet again, you are a prime example of someone not understanding 'how' to be civil. Now pick the shovel up & reply yet again, I know you will. How do I know? Because children have a hard time shutting up when they're on the losing end of things, you wouldn't know that not having children yourself. Satisfaction comes within a child when the adult continues to feed attention, therefore, I will cut your supply now. Thank you for playing. =) [Please make my point stronger by replying again...]

    Ps; I meant closed to you. Now that you understand that, there is nothing more to say.

    I like this idea a lot, it will be going in my vault of ideas. Although, it wasn't my idea, lol. I wanted to do a documentary on homeless people, to interview them seeing how they got in the situation they were in. Many people think alcohol/drugs are a direct result of homelessness, but in reality, the rate of homeless people due to those circumstances are low. Many of the homeless people you see got in that situation because of other reasons, which I won't get into. But, many of them also fought for our country before we were born. I would like to give a little respect to them because the substance abuse doesn't actually start until they're homeless & people don't understand that. They see now, not then.

    This is why your idea really strikes in my mind... it's similar in ways. As for why I'm doing it, college. I went back to college [not due to failing the first time around] lol, but because I wanted to take extra classes. I've completed 6yrs, working on 8 now. Small film festival success is also in mind of course.

    Make one on internet trolls and why it angers people so much.....

    That would be an awful doc. considering I have found that most trolls are actually the ones who get angered 9-10 times. The one trolling is usually the one getting owned, therefore the one getting angry, the owner usually just... well, does exactly that, owns. Lol. I think I've actually only gotten mad at 1 troll since 'discovering' the internet & the circumstances kind of warranted it. I think a doc. on internet trolls and 'why' they get so angry would be a better fit. Not to mention, it could explore beyond the trolling, most trolls are angry people already, before logging into the forum they plan to corrupt.

    A troll comes online to anger people because they're life is filled with anger, it's they're way of getting back at society, because they feel they are angry because of society. Kind of like the theory, the police officer was a nerd in school, thus becoming a man of/with power.

    Very interesting ideas I'm getting, thanks DSB65.

    [Lmao @ thecoc08 - She eats the bait AGAIN by replying, I love it, damned too easy to own! Kids, they just never learn... odd, I didn't know when you ignore someone they can still reply to your threads. Seems pointless, but then again... at least I don't have to see the reply.]

    Oh, how tempted I am to see what he's trolling now, but... what kind of example would I be setting, to give into a child's demands? I would still like to hear more on ideas, even though I think I have the one, but stoners are the best at collaborating with.
