Ditto that. I’m in. I also sent pizzaboy a PM asking him if he wants in or not.

Oh, and I cleaned up the forum a bit. And for those who forgot where it was: http://zerohour.aceboard.com/

NOTE: IF YOU ARE NOT PARTICIPATING IN THE ZERO HOUR PROJECT, PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER ON THE FORUMS. I’VE MADE SURE THAT ONLY MEMBERS CAN ACCESS THE THREADS, BUT PEOPLE WHO REGISTER AND DON’T DO ANYTHING TAKE UP SPACE.

Sorry about the multiple posting, but this has nothing to do with the other two. Here’s a teaser (not permanent until the animators working on this give me a heads-up on it) script on what could be the beginning of the ‘Zero Hour: End of the World’ Community Project.

[spoiler]Zero Hour: The End of the World

SCENE ONE: OVERVIEW OF THE WORLD

Narrator: “In December of 2012, over seven billion people were fearful of the Mayans’ prediction of the world ending. They just never expected it the way it actually occurred.

CUE TITLE

SCENE TWO: MAJOR, ANONYMOUS BRICKFILMER’S HOUSE

A famous brickfilmer whose name had never been disclosed to anyone is at his computer early in the morning. He is preparing to launch the ‘THAC (Insert random number) Starts Now!’ thread.

Brickfilmer (to himself): “OK, and it’s up! THAC starts now!”

SCENE THREE: SWITCH BETWEEN SHOTS OF A FEW BRICKFILMERS

Three brickfilmers are working on their THAC entries, while the narrator does a voice over.

Narrator: “Everybody was busy working on their THAC entries. That was what saved them. While they were working on their films…”

SCENE FOUR: WORLD TECHNOLOGY HEADQUARTERS

A few people are working at WTH, making sure all of the world’s technology keeps running. Worker One is working on the world’s TV broadcasting machine. Worker Two is working on the internet broadcast tower. Worker Three is working on the video game lobbies.

Worker Two: “Everything OK here.”

Worker Three: “Same here.”

Worker One: “Everything OK here- What the?”

Worker Two: “What’s up?”

Worker One: “I’m not sure. You better see this.”

Workers Two and Three rush over to Worker One’s console.

Worker One: “It’s nothing I’ve ever seen before. A huge power spike. It’s hacking into the system!”

Worker Three: “Activate the fire wall system!”

Worker One: “I’m trying! The energy spike is slowing this system down!”

An alarm goes off. The entire place locks down.

ALARM PA: “Warning. Foreign infestation. Beginning lockdown.”

Worker One: “C’mon, c’mon, c’mon…”

After a few seconds, the fire wall system finally activates.

Alarm PA: “Fire Wall activated. Lockdown process terminated.”

Worker Two: “Nice job! Just think of what would have happened if that virus got through! What is it supposed to do, anyways?”

Worker One: “I really don’t know, and I really don’t care. I’m just glad it’s gone.”[/spoiler]

And I was wondering if I’m the only one who thinks the three workers should be Shale, Twobit, and Captain Bulldog. I’m not sure why.

Great!

So Hazzat, bmwp, pizzaboy, and myself are running this film.

If we use THAC in the film there’s one thing we have to do, explain what THAC is (for people who DON’T know what it is).

I thought of the idea of you see a kid working on his THAC entry in his room, when his mom walks in.
She ask: “What-cha working on?” and he explains what THAC is.

A simple way of explaining what THAC is, and it would fit in perfectly.
What do you think?

That’s a very good idea.

I explained this idea months before, but it got lost with all the story changing.
Hopefully now that it’s only the four of us will be able to finish this project.

A quick teaser trailer! Here it is!

I sure hope I matched everyone’s correct YouTube name with their BF name. This video trailer shows most of the Special Elites, some without names, even. I sure hope we can actually get the ball rolling on this project.

The sound effects felt a bit corny, but I liked the rest.

Just because it’s Thursday and I’m really bored, I worked out part of an outline. This includes events that could possibly occur in the project. Whatever. Boredom sucks.

Basic Outline

I. THAC (insert random number) occurs
A. Sigfigs (or characters) start animating
B. Character I explains what THAC is to somebody (mom, dad, sibling, etc.)

II. TV infected by virus
A. Random people watching TV turn into faceless zombies
B. Characters still animating

III. Cities in ruins
A. Zombies running around chasing people
B. General ‘end of the world’ activity occurs (people screaming, looting, attacking, etc.)

IV. Special Elites meeting
A. Special Elites converse about people surviving the waves of zombies
B. Units are dispatched to rescue them
C. Survivors are brought back to the base
1. Survivors are asked questions
2. Survivors join the Special Elites

V. Days later
A. Character 2 is running a message across rooftops
1. Character 2 delivers message to Elite
B. Character 2 converses with Character 3 and another Elite
1. Characters 2 and 3 learn about the head zombie
2. Character 3 tells Character 4
3. Character 2 tells Character 1
C. Switching from shots of all four Characters training (fire arms, combat, etc.)

Character 4 doesn’t get to do a lot, does he?

I got writer’s block. I couldn’t finish it. Anyone else have any bright ideas?
