The first one:
It takes place in Florida or some other southern state (because yard sales are a big thing in those states). The story starts by showing this little old man that gets up really early every morning and starts nailing up his signs and putting his signs in peoples yard notifying everyone about the yard sale. He does this every weekend for along time (of course we cut it really short) we cut to show him putting everything he needs for his yard sale including his lounge chair and a table that he can put his drink on, he also post a sign in the front yard for people walking by. Well as time goes by people in the cars see the signs, see him in front of the house, the slow down to pull into the driveway and then suddenly driveway. People even walk by just laughing at the stuff he has to sell. Well it starts to get later in the day and his wife is now coming outside to nag at him to come inside and to give up on this useless yard sale, she tells him that every weekend he gets up, he hangs the signs, he sits outside waiting and yet every weekend, nobody buys anything. So finally as the sun is finally setting he packs it up for the day hoping that tomorrow it will be better. The End
OH.. I forgot at the very end it cuts away to his sign posted in the front of the house that reads: "One Yard For Sale, Asking Best Offer, Grass Only!"
The second one:
A guy by the name of john wakes up every morning at the crack of dawn gets is pajamas and slippers on a goes downstairs to get ready for work. But one morning changes his life upside down. As he comes out of the bathroom after his morning shower he notices a banana moving across the kitchen counter. As he approches the counter he relizes that he has a row of ants walking across his counter, he follows the trail down the counter across the floor and out his back door, apparently that is where they are coming from. He looks under the counter for some ant spray but can't find anything, he suddenly pops out of the counter with the only thing he can find. A fly swatter and a bottle of glass cleaner. By now his whole lunch is moving across the counter. He starts swatting and spraying and after a few minutes it seems to be working. He wipes the dead ants and goes back up stairs to get ready for work.
When he comes back down the stairs and more ants are all over his counter. He immediatly starts spraying and swatting the counter very quickly and very upset now! After a few minutes, he cleans them all up and relizes hes late for work, as he is walking out he sees more coming through the door but is unable to do anything because he is late.
All day at work he is thinking what to do, when he relizes that he is going to have to go to the store to buy some ant spary. (Insert dream of a guy selling ant spray to john "he says no problem this will do the job").
He returns home to find them all over his counter. He sprays and sprays and finaly gets them cleaned up. After being exhuasted from cleaning the counters and sweeping the floor, he decides to sit down and watch some t.v. Soon he falls asleep for a little nap, when he wakes up there back and worse than ever.
He reaches down to pick up the can of ant spray that he bought. He looks over the front of the can and proceeds to read the back. It says kills ants instantly. He is confused, why didn't it kill the ants? Then suddenly he looks at the bottom it reads in fine print " Kills Red Ants Only!" he looks around, all of the ants are black! He is now running around the kitchen cleaning every corner and space trying to figure out why the keep coming in? Theres no food open, all the counters are clean and any open food has been put high up on the shelves, but they still keep coming out. He kneels down on the floor screaming and yelling and yells out to the row of the ants why to you keep coming in. One of the little ants stop in his tracks looks up at him and says " we come in here because your place is much better than the hole in ground we have".
This is where I am at wright now with the second film. I haven't decided completely if this will be the ending or not. If anyone can think of a better ending please let me know. I am sure I can put you in to the credits for your contributions.
I have pitched the idea to Alias because that is the man software I will be using, they loved it! FYI I will be starting production with both films hopefuly by late October, if anyone will like to help with modeling, please let me know.
