Bored? Maybe you should make a movie.
There are a few simple rules to follow.
1) Have a great story.
2) Show, don’t tell.
3) Make a movie that YOU(and other people) would actually want to see.
Ask yourself, “Is this awesome?” If the answer is “yes,” proceed. You are doing a good job.
First you’ll need a small crew. Although other art forms can be done by one person, a movie is usually a collaborative effort(unless your name is Vincent Gallo).
Move the camera around on a dolly. Dynamic, moving shots give your movie production value and make it less like a student film.
REAL special effects and stunts can be achieved if you know what you’re doing. They also look way better than computer effects(just think original Star Wars trilogy vs. new ones).

Use your resources. Maybe you know an alien that can breakdance – see if he’s available.
Remember, unlike a song or a painting which you can create and enjoy by yourself, the purpose of a movie is to be seen. No one should spend time, money, and energy to make a movie that doesn’t have an audience. It’s a wasteful shame, but out of the 40+ feature films I’ve worked on, more than 10 have never seen the light of day. Think of all the useful ways that money and time could have been spent!
Anything worth doing is worth doing well.
