Please post any films that are ready to this thread. Remember, there is no deadline, this is a challenge. Let’s see the weirdness….November 16, 2004 at 5:05 pm #68624
Oh, so it goes on forever, eh?
That means I could still have a chance of becoming a Patron Digital!
Forget it. I don’t know what the hell Anne Frank is all about. And I don’t want to even add the bike bit in my version if I were to make it.November 16, 2004 at 9:20 pm #68659
Since there was no deadline, I kinda drifted off and started working on another film.I’ll restart filming filimng after I release the new one.
Legoguy, you’re off the list….November 16, 2004 at 9:20 pm #68660
You can make the movie about anything, as long as it has the title “Anne Frank in bricks” and is wierd.

Although the film title is quite crucial, you could maybe give it a subtitle :winkNovember 17, 2004 at 4:08 pm #68770

OK, I heard someone got a bit touchy about this contest and it’s subject. In the Lively Discussion forum, in the Morals thread, I posted this…

To understand this, you need to understand that my morals and my wicked sense of humour are able to coexist, where the humour is used inelligently and to make a point.
Were someone to actually make a comedy about the tragic tale of Anne Frank, I personally would find that to be disturbing and would rightly cause offense to most people. However, there are aspects of the Anne Frank story which lend themselves to humour, and I would resist the current atmosphere of political correctness, through which people seek to apply their own personal values and force them on others. This is the very root of situation comedy.
In Britain, for many years a situation comedy called ‘Allo ‘Allo ran on our main channel, BBC One. Whilst it did not tickle my funny bone, it was a mainstream comedy featuring incompetent Nazis, the French Resistance, British airmen hiding out, it had scenes hinting at torture and sado-masochism, and was extremely popular with young and old.
Personally, my amusement at the Anne Frank thing from Weirdears was actually more at the complete lack of association between the film trailer and it’s title. What I am looking for in the challenge is films which similarly display a complete disregard for all the normal rules of film making, finding humour in the unexpected. Other examples might be deliberate continuity errors, the unusual situation in the Anne Frank story, hackneyed dialogue, strange camera angles.
What I was not looking for was a faithful retelling of a death camp in Lego as a humorous film.
