    Wow, how did i not see this section opened up again?! I remember talking with Revmen at BrickFest and talking up the CP idea again. Great to see this in action.

    As much as i like musicals, i’m not sure you could do an entire brickfilm revolving around one… just my two cents. Now that doesn’t mean that you can’t include a musical number or two in the CP, that might prove to be pretty good if you poured all your musical talents into one or two scenes instead of spread out over an entire movie.

    My general idea (and i will be submitting an outline with characters and such later today) that i think would work well is an adventure comedy. True this is similar in some respects to the last official CP, but there is room for a lot of differences. Every funny / action type movie seems to have a combination of two (sometimes three) characters going on some crazy / zany adventure together, facing insurmountable odds, and realizing something deeper about the world in the end.

    So why not have the movie as one big Adventure flick… put in some musical numbers (work something into the script that supports it), maybe a chase scene (something on train tracks would be different… ala Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), and perhaps even a riddle that has to be solved.

    Like i said i’ll be submitting something later today to Revmen, but i like some of the ideas i’ve been hearing so far and am very excited to see an official CP start up again~!

    I think Joe is right about the musical element. Instead of the whole film being musical, it would be awesome to work out one really good musical number.

    Joe’s outline is a very good one and I’m going to support it. Joe has agreed to direct it (ha ha, he doesn’t know what he’s getting into) so now we’re going to look for writers.

    The RP Hoogle idea shall be put on the backburner. Hoogle, if you want to do something else with that idea of course you’re welcome to do so.

    Also, if anyone else is interested in producing a Brickfilms CP and thinks they have the right stuff, I’m willing to back several projects. By “back,” I mean making sure you have all of the bricks and resources you need to get it done.

    If you can explain how the writing-the-script portion will play out, I’m potentially in to help there.
    Love Joe’s outline. 8)

    So is this going to be the CP? What jobs are needed that won’t require much time?

    Yes, Rev, like Divao said:

    I am willing to help out in the script-writing section as well.

    I could help in script writing, I know I shouldn’t start mobbing you to get into script writing though.

    :lol: Yeah, right.

    The script writing will probably include many sessions in some kind of chat hashing out ideas. It will include people writing drafts of scenes and re-writing drafts that others have written. It will include a lot of work, arguing, hurt feelings, underappreciation, unfair workloads, and a script that will probably not make the whole team happy. Please be sure you absolutely want to be a part of this before offering your services.

    And be sure the project doesn’t bastardize scenes from popular children’s books.
