So do we want to have someone write a script for a film or do we want to make a trailer on a general idea?

Let's get this going!

I'd rather do a trailer on a general idea, but I'm up for anything.

Ok, that's 1 for general, that's 1 for script. I say general, because I would like to see ideas on a general thing go off in different directions. Unless someone here is willing to write a script, and unless you guys are willing to wait a good few weeks for one to be written, I say the general is looking better for ease of use.

i vote general, but i wouldnt wanna just make a trailer.
lets make it so we agree on simply a title, like they dis in on the lot, such as "out of time".
so everyone should just suggest random (but sensible) title, then we make a poll on it, then we make a 1-2 min short from that title within a deadline, then we do another poll and we vote on who's we think is best.
i mean thats just suggesting what could happen if we do a general idea.

yeh see thats a good title cos its open to a massive range of ideas and lets people think freely, it could be any genre pretty much, comedy, horror, action. but still stays within certain confinements. as opposed to "the guy who gos and kills this other dude for revenge"

Someone has to take initiative or it will never be decided. 2-5 minutes?

Well maybe we should give everybody intersted a week to write a short script (no more then ten min) and then we vote for the once to use for the comp.

Agreed. Let's make a post for a script on this. Give them till July 7. If nothing comes in, go with the general idea. I think a 2-5 minute film would be good too. And not the first half filled with opening credits. Just open with the basic title and go from there. And let's make the film from scratch - not reuse parts of others we've made from before. I will make a post on the scriptwriting for this now.

OK, I made a general call for entries post.
