Out of ideas? What ideas have you already had? You're going to need to be A LOT more specific than that to get help around here.

Morphing and rigging, how about including something like this?...

...but using morph targets for the head rather than bones. You find a speech clip you like and make a short story based around it.

If your character is you... why don't you just act something out for 2 minutes!? This I imagine, would be the perfect reference for your animation.
