Write a short film with only 15 words of dialogue

Joe Boyd of California has set an interesting challenge: write a script for a short film featuring only 15 words of dialogue. To make things juicier, the dialogue is already supplied:
"You nervous"
"A little"
"It's my first time"
"Really, you've never-"

Boyd is looking to make five short films using exactly the same dialogue and actors. Your mission - should you choose to accept it, is filling in the blanks between the dialogue to tell a complete, unique story. Of course, there are some rules. The script must contain all the dialogue in order, with no added dialogue, subtractions or other changes. Boyd wants compelling stories, with a beginning, middle and end, all told in one minute or two standard pages of screenplay. And the deadline? July 15th.

A huge thank you for posting this. I would never have heard of it, and I have since submitted a script. Thanks again!
