Well, you got a setting down, a unique one which I like. What we need here is a plot. I see the carnivorous plant as one potential force to oppose.

Along with the MOC themes (Steampunk and ApocaLEGO), I think in order to include more animators, there should be more than 4 clans.

Here’s a possible plot based on the premise that would be inclusive of multiple animators:

As each character struggles to survive in their clan, dealing with the monster plants and whatnot, an event occurs, perhaps in the outskirts of any known clan borders. This draws the attention of the characters and they venture to discover what it is.

This could be a collaboration among animators who have the same themes. For example, one character’s venture through the wasteland is covered by 3 animators. With 4+ characters from 4+ different clans, ideally, we would have 12+ animators working on this project.

Anyways, I like to see this developed some more. One issue I have is that not everyone has the same creative mind as the next person and not everyone has the parts necessary to contribute.

Yes, this was my greatest fear. The parts needed to make a very good post- apocalyptic set is somewhat specific, and numerous on top of that.

I now have a real list of clans.

1.Sky Pirates- Most powerful at begining of story, Flying a magnificent airship called the Shining Jay.
2. Isalnders- Tribal, island- dwelling people who have little resources and fight with rocks and sticks. I.E. ewok status in this story.
3. the Clan a religious group who dwell in the remains of castles. They draw their power from motivation that a higher power will favor them
4. Urban Defenders- Living in the remains of old urban areas, they scavange what food and weaponry they can find to defend themselves agaisnt the Palm.
5. The Mahrums (MAH-rooms) Desert nomads who are slightly more protected from the Palm, as it is harder to grow in the desert. they defend themselves b skillfully throwing knives
6.The Wariors- A small group, the last people with formal military training in wasteland. They are descendants of the troops that made up the world army. Teir fathers taught them all they know.

Bounty hunters- mercenaries who charge a pretty penny to hunt and kill whoever they are ordered to.

The Palm- Carnivorous plant, mutated from what was once a fern. Its spores can infect humans, but rarely do, and the spores start to make full grown Palms in bursts every month. The rate at which they grow is becoming more and more irregular… a serious danger to mankind. It is the common foe of all of the clans, and sometimes the clans must help each other to put down larger Palm growths. These short- lived alliances are broken once the palm has been killed, and the factions proceed to wage war agaisnt one another.

the film will follow groups of people from different regions of wasteland who are from different factions. A scientist in one group discovers that the Palm growth will happen sooner than it should, and unless the palm is completely wiped out, it will destroy mankind. more developments will be made in the script, but that is the basic idea.

You mention that this is school related. Is this plot of yours mainly for school? Because based on experience, it is better if the community helps develop a plot that most can agree on. Your plot is fine, I’m just curious if you’re determine to go in this direction or is input desirable?

This story was develped from a story i wrote for school. It go an A, too, thank you very much. :wink The story is already done… but the movie script will be a bit different.
But no, the film itself will have nothing to do with school, unless i might want to show the teacher what i did with my story.

This would be like the urban defenders right? I also just found out that was made by Nathan Wells. Weird.

Probably 3 hours.

Sounds to me like you’re trying a little to hard to fit every single LEGO theme (fan-created and otherwise) into a brickfilm.

I don’t think this would work as a CP. It might work fine as a personal project, but you should be focusing on the story more.

And yes, I build stuff outside of brickfilms. In fact, that’s what I used to do a lot more.

LOTL- I never realy thought about fitting all of the themes in… I was just thinking that steampunk and ApocaLEGO go together and that they would make a good film. The mentioning of Castle is not really my intention now, but a castle made in apocaLEGO style would look awesome, no? As for the story… yes, I am trying to work things out. for now, its a concept, but i will be doing a lot of work on the script.

Twick- No, not three hours… like a 6-8 minute thing. And yes, that would be a good one for Urban defenders.

Well, for only 6-8 minutes, I think that length would fit better for a personal project. For community project, depending on how many want to animate it and the plot, it may have to be longer than 8. But that’s just my estimate. If you’re able to establish this post-apocalyptic world, the antagonist and the objective within the first 2 minutes, come up with a way to have multiple animators animate it (for example, Late For Work-style sequence) to get the characters to their objective and accomplish it, then 6-8 minutes is workable.

LegoShark, do you have a picture or idea of what the Palm is going to look like in Lego form?

Why not? If your going to make a CP and people are people are interested, might as well make it a half hour at least.

Half an hour… That is a LOT. 15 minutes at the most. People don’t want to watch food scavanging and the sort for half an hour… but yes, there will be a script.
