Refining of my story line

Although i had planned for each person who held up their feelings on a piece of paper to act out a small scene depicting their feelings. Although when i started filiming last week i realised that this was going to be almost impossible as the actors did not take it seriouse they were unsure as to what they were doing and the end product was not up to a high enough standard.
So I now plan for very small scenes to be acted out for each card but a very minimal amount, for example for the card 'Will he ever ask?' i was thinking that it could be a girl holding up the card and a boy walking behind her so that as an audience member you have to figure out what it is she wants him to ask.
However, i think if this is infact what i am planning on doing i need to find a wide range of actors and actresses, allong with a wide range of locations.
so this is my new rough plan of filiming (Although i am not too sure about the order) the bold is what is going to be written on each card:

What is love? / Does he love me really?
· A young girl, crying?
· Natural coloured clothing,
· Bruised?
· Older dominant male (dark clothing) showing his power grips her shoulders, (zoom in on his hand on her shoulder)
· Homely location, kitchen etc.

Will everything be ok? (Naomi)
· A pregnant woman,
· People going about their every day lives in the foreground,
· High angle shot,
· Turn to the side holding her stomach medium shot
· Wearing warm colours browns, reds etc.

Does any one see me? (Lee)
· A male very brightly coloured,
· Busy people in the back ground,
· Zoom out for the card to a extreme long shot,

Pan and cut to next person
