How to come up with story ideas in a flash?

Help me prepare for a writing contest! In September I signed up for a competition where I will have 48 hours to come up with a short (<8 min) film script. They will reveal a specific "catch", a theme, prop or other constraint which must be incorporated into every entry.
How best to prepare for this? I know I have difficulty brainstorming plot ideas so I'm afraid I'm going to freeze and not be able to come up with a decent storyline. (Note: not looking for "how to write a screenplay", more at how to quickly generate great, short, story ideas)
