In my high school Art I class, the teacher's daughter would come in and help teach during her fall/spring breaks from film school. This was always the easy escape from endless still life drawing sessions. The only problem with this assignment was that the teacher's daughter was a total square. The rules of the film project were: no horror movies, nothing funny, and no acting in your own movie. We thought those rules sucked, so we made a movie about hot dogs taking over the world. But so we didn't fail, we made it "artsy" and told her it was a about consumerism and society's obsession with products. We got an A+.
