Hats. It must have something to do with hats. I love hats.

Hehe,

Anyway, does anyone know an email address I can use to talk to Lego about this? I might just go through their customer service address.

EDIT: Dug about their site, no other address apart from customer service. I noticed that have a category for questions related to the Lego company so I sent an email via there.

Fingers crossed every body!

I would absolutely love to help in some way, if at all possible. I could help write, as I have already re-written the entire Bionicle saga.

Who here watches films like Hypothetical Possibilities and Feel Great(both by MindGame)? It should be something that appeals to that kind of audience, but without being too fluffy and cute. It needs an edge.

We should try to incorporate castle, city and space to show the endless possibilities of Lego. It may sound strange, but I know that I’m right.

You’ve probably heard this story before, but when Pixar first storyboarded “Toy Story” they were pushed to give it an “edge.” As a result, the film stank. They took it back, re-did it without worrying about putting in an “edge” and the film was amazing. Don’t concentrate on giving it an “edge.” Just make a film that you’d want to see.

I don’t think so. That could get out of hand. Just tell a good story. Don’t worry about incorporating multiple themes.

I think we need to make a kids movie in my opinion… Kids like lego, adults think it’s to childish.

I don’t know… all of the adults that I’ve shown “The Magic Portal” to loved it. In fact, they liked it more than kids I’ve shown it to because they understood more.

If we were to incorporate a bunch of different LEGO themes it’d come off as an advertisement for LEGO.

May I suggest we do not make a space science-fiction movie, but instead something like an on-earth fantasy or present day scenario plot. I think that opens more opportunities and makes it much less of a hassle.

I agree. That would also make less of a need for CGI.

I would also recommend shortening the length of the project. Chances are there aren’t going to be many animators, and if it’s going to be feature-length…yikes. That’s going to be a major turn-off for a lot of animators.

Which brings us back to CGI. Not a lot of community members are experienced in CGI, but if the ones who are can make something good, that would make the time spent animating a lot shorter and easier, as well. While it may not be a true CP, it would definitely make things a lot easier on the animators.

So I’m kind of leaning towards CGI at this point, because the chances of this being completed with stop-motion is zero. And you have to remember, almost all CPs fail as soon as the animation phase comes.

Another advantage of CGI is that it would probably be more welcomed by an audience. It also gets rid of that problem with different camera qualities.

But it’s your call, Doc.

I think the project length is fine, but we need to take it in stages, not all at once. Start with a scriptwriting stage.
