I have a BIG dream. After reading some posts about the fan film genre starting to die away, I got this idea. I need some opinions. (copy and paste this to another document if you wish to read it some other way.) PLAN: 1. ALL fan film writers come together to create the story for a Jedi vs Sith Prequel movie. a. Just imagine the biggest Jedi and Sith armies you could imagine on screen. b. The Jedi/ Sith War is in full swing, there needs to be a backstory. (My reason for dating the story back so far is because the prequels and sequels fan films have pretty much been covered and are done too often. NEED ORIGINALITY!!!) (can we get permission from George Lucas to actually do this? Could we Copyright? Will we get in trouble if we dont have permission? All need to be settled... 2. Election of the Movie's Producer. a. Need to select candidates who are willing, and skilled enough to produce a film which could be shot ALL OVER THE WORLD. b. There could be more than one producer. Possibly a Regional Producer (someone to cover a region where shooting may be taking place which will collaberate with the other producers.) c. I say election because there are a lot of skilled filmmakers out there who would be willing to produce a film of this magnitude. The Fans need to decide. 3. Selection of the Cast and Pre Production Crew. a. This involves story boards, pre-visualization, casting calls... you name it. b. Some lucky people are going to get to play the main characters out of MILLIONS of Star Wars fans. 4. Shooting. a. Directors from ALL OVER THE PLACE will be involved. They can organize and shoot their own Jedi vs. Sith battle (major scale) that must fit into the story. (The video and Audio must also meet the requirements set by the Movie's Main Editor. (aspect ratio, stereo/mono/surround sound, picture quality... etc)) b. Movie's Main Producer will make the call on whose battles will make it to the final cut. c. Movie's Main Producer will work with the main characters and the Main Director to get the actual story shot. 5. Post Production Team a. Sound designers, editors, visual FX artists, CG animators, etc... all work on sections of the movie. (It's been done before. (The Movie Spoof Trilogy)) All of them may be from all over the country. b. Main Director and Producer decide which battle sequences are used. c. Final Cut... ALL PIECES COME TOGETHER... Assemble the names for the credits!! THIS IS A ROUGH IDEA FOR A WORLD WIDE FAN FILM MOVIE (so far, it is only an idea. Need fans to discuss) Can it be done? I think so... just need a team of people to organize it. What do you think? Scary huh?
