Plotline: What if one day you woke up with special abilities? What would you do?

Plot points:

  • A natural event occurs, granting a number of characters special powers overnight. Whatever grants them power isn’t the focus of the project.[/*]
  • The characters each discover their powers the next day and each test and/or utilizes their power within the animator’s realm (house, neighbor, basically not affecting the bigger world).[/*]
  • One character (technopathy) has trouble controlling his/her powers and accidentally makes an A.I. self-awareness. The A.I. takes over all electronics.[/*]
  • All the characters are linked together by news reports of robots attacking both in major cities and within their own realms.[/*]
  • One character (Reality Warping) joins the A.I. and uses his powers to improve the Robots.[/*]
  • Each of the characters fight off and defeat the robots attack using their powers. How they succeed is up to the animator (be it due to mastering their abilities or by shear dumb luck).[/*]
  • After defeating the robots in their realm, a select number of characters (five is the current number) decide to venture to the place where the robots are coming from. Eventually, these select few will come together in a scene to battle the bigger, bad robots.[/*]
  • The conflict ends with the technopathic character responsible for the chaos shuts off the A.I. and the Reality Warping character is defeated.[/*]

Questions subscene animators should ask themselves:

  1. How does my character discover his/her powers?[/*]
  2. How does he/she utilize his/her powers within the realm your character is in?[/*]
  3. What does your character do to defeat the robots attacking his/her home?[/*]

Questions for resourceful animators:

  1. Do you have what it takes to bring your character into the big scenes?[/*]
  2. Are you welling to animate other animators’ character?[/*]

Writers, contributors, etc., this is your forum. Join and I’ll add you to the private writers group. And please, while you are developing the details and script of this project, try to remain within the plot points I’ve made.

Assistant producers, start keeping track of activities recording the project and update this thread frequently with any changes. Also, sign up on the private forum the writers are in and I’ll assign you to the Production Forum. There you can post additional updates.

Animators, please confirm what position you want (subscene or main) and confirm that you are committing to this project.

Remember, this is an Official Community Project so I expect above average animation and quality from you. If you can’t meet that demand, this is not the project for you. Take a look at the main animator’s own work as well as some of the noteworthy subscene animators like Gray Scale. If your level of animation skills, ability, and picture quality aren’t close to the same range as the main animators, then you should really think about whether or not you can meet my demands.

We, the editors, reserve the right to reject submissions if they don’t meet our standards.

Everyone else, this is an official business thread. You may sign up for positions here. All concept related questions and comments should go into the Concept thread.

You can confirm me as all of the above (for the subscene/main animator, I’m sub).

I might do the Flight one. Depends on how long my current project takes me, but the good news is I’m filming 40% of it tomorrow.

When do you need a confirmation?

I’ll get back to you on my decision. Is this project going to take a long time, like a year, to complete?

You can confirm me. Subscene (I’m not too great at 2+ person fights yet!).

That all depends on how quick and punctual the animators are at sending clips to me.

By the way, I’ll have to consult with LotL about hosting the clips.

I’m in for a sub-scene. I might reconsider invisibility though.

You can confirm me as a visual effects supervisor, and as having the multiple powers of flight, invisibility, and shape-shifting. I’d also like to be a main animator, but I want to know more about what this battle scene will require.

Please note you will have to apply some limitations on those powers, and probably more severe than others since you have multiple powers.

I’ve decided that I, as a telekenetic, can only manipulate objects that I could normally manipulate (no throwing cars at people or ripping trees out of the ground), and I can only manipulate only objects I have a direct line of sight too.

Lech, confirm me for everything.

Yes, I was aware of that. I’m trying to think of something good. It could be that water or excessive moisture in the air can stop me, but this is basically the same with Sandman. If you have any ideas, please tell me.

Squash, I need confirmation of the power you chosed.

Nick: to keep this thread business related, see my answer in the concept thread.

Ok, confirm me for elasticity.
EDIT: Do we need to sign up to the writers forum, to stay informed about the plot?

I have finally decided that I will not be a part of this project.

I feel that I am not worthy to be a part of what I feel will be a great film, until I improve my overall brickfilming skills. If I were to participate in this project, I would probably be sending mediocre clips, ones not worthy to be among the great brickfilmers who have enlisted in this project.

Munz, all right, but if you still wish to contribute to the project, feel free to let me or the producers know.

Squash, feel free to, however, only writers get access to the writer’s forum and producers the Production Forum.

By the way, those who have signed up to the forum that I haven’t assigned a positioned to (i.e. not a writer nor a producer) let me what purpose you have for joining (like if you want to be part of the writer’s group).
