Default Need help deciding on ideas for documentary

Our final project in our media arts class is to do a 10 minute documentary. Everyone in the class pitches ideas and the teacher picks the ones he likes and those are made into student films.

Im having some trouble deciding what a good/fun one could cover. Any input would be appreciated. Remember, it has to be done by 4 high school students.

Go follow some amateur racers, such as those from Honda Cup or Honda Challenge. Follow them for a race/weekend. They have races up in NorCal.

Just go follow around another group in your class with a camera and tell your teacher its a documentary about making a documentary.

Then follow them home, watch through the window as they sit down to eat dinner, as your breath fogs up the kitchen window they look but you move out of the way just in time to avoid suspicion.

Supper is finished and the family moves into the living room and upstairs to their bedrooms respectively. You are upset because you do not have a ladder accessable or a way to view into the 2nd story windows.

Limited to the first floor you peer into the living room window. There the driver sits with his son watching television. He is explaing the show they are watching on television.

An hour passes and the son goes to bed. The wife comes down after putting him to bed and her and her husband sit on the couch and talk about their days. You faintly hear through the glass the man talking about this weird kid who was following him around all weekend while at the track. Explaining he was doing a documentary it still was an uncomfortable situation for him. Just then a loud exhaust goes by the house. The tone brings the attention of the driver to look out the window. Anticipating his natural reaction to the sound you are already down in the bushes waiting unnoticed.

As they head up to bed you wait outside. You decide to give them a 30min courtsy period to make sure they are asleep. Sneeking in through the back gate of the house you carefully pry open the glass sliding door to the kitchen. Removing your shoes so they do not make noise while walking across the tile floor you make your asention upstairs. As you amble quietly down the hall with the camera now in night vision you spot the children asleep in their beds. Their faces aglow on your camera's viewfinder.

You make your way to the end of the hall carefully open the door to the master bedroom. Luckily the driver is a loud snorer. The squeaking of the door was not noticed. You hover carefully and silently above thier bed. Moving the camera around each of them while whispering into your mic.

Then he wakes up and shoots you.

The End.
