Hey team!

I'm on assignment for a new short for my friends at Element 35. Under 30 minutes. Three men in their late 20s/early 30s. Problem is I have exactly zero ideas. Need a little help with a premise. If anyone has any ideas, throw them here. I'd appreciate it.

If not, no worries. I'm sure something will come. But any help would be greatly appreciated.

What if all the guys are recently unemployed but their girlfriends all have good jobs and they're struggling with gender identity roles. And then there's a monkey that plays show tunes on the piano.

I'd see that. I love struggling with gender identity roles.

I don't know. That sounds awfully familiar. I don't wanna be too obviously derivative, ya know?

I thought maybe one of those ideas would be helpful. I forget now even what they say.
