There are a few things to keep in mind when doing this assignment:
1) Tell a story. The entire point of this exercise is for you to practice showing, not telling, and practice creating a coherent story in a very small space.
2) Create your own materials. Many times it's much simpler to either film or record yourself the clip you're looking for, rather than trying to find the perfect one online then worrying about the copyright.
3) Less is more. You'll here me say this phrase over and over again, but it's tree; don't try to bite off more than you can chew. Make a good, simple film instead of a crappy, complex film.
4) Think in scenes and think in clips. We're making movies now, we have to start thinking about not just the whole picture, but the smaller pictures that make up the whole as well.
