I want to enter a competition where you have to pitch an idea for a video about recycling. The film is to be 3 minutes in length, if you get picked, you go on to make the film and it gets on TV. If I come up with a good idea I might do it anyway.<br><br><br><br>
I have to send the idea by Monday, so not much time. Does anyone have any suggestions. It'd have to be something I could film in and around London.<br><br><br><br>
Ideas I've had so far....<br><br><br><br>
1, Talking to my local council, who are always praised for their efforts in recycling, but still don't offer plastic recycling!<br><br><br><br>
2, Difficulties and solutions of living in a flat, when it comes to recycling.<br><br><br><br>
3, Standing next to some recycling bins and interviewing whoever comes to recycle stuff.<br><br><br><br>
4, Trying to find some people who recycle clothes, and get them to demo a few things.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
So if anyone else has any ideas or suggestions, that would be great!<br><br><br><br>

#3 sounds like it has the most potential to be different from other films. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

It's also the least amount of work for me, as seen as I can see a recycle point from my window. I could go shoot it now.<br><br><br><br>
Though in some ways ways I'd like to do something a bit more challenging. I need to check to see if I can do more than one idea, and if they'd allow foreign travel. I have a great idea for one in Africa.

I knew a guy in Southern New Mexico who took a group of school children to the city dump to promote recycling and, using just stuff pulled from the dump, built a really huge roadrunner.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tips/getAttraction.php3?tip_AttractionNo==1975" target="_blank">http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tips/...actionNo==1975</a><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.desertexposure.com/200505/200505_big_bird.html" target="_blank">http://www.desertexposure.com/200505..._big_bird.html</a><br><br><br><br>
Maybe you could do something with a London theme.

That does look really cool! I'm not sure if it's really what I'm after doing for this, as it sounds like he only did it the 1 time. If he did it regularly it might work better.<br><br><br><br>
I've found out about a recycling making art festival happening in London, on at the same time I'd need to film, so I'd probably go with that.

That's amazing!<br><br><br><br>
And as far as your ideas go, Kat, I think your third one sounds like the most fun, and sounds like it'd be pretty interesting.
