I think it's important to settle on a theme or concept. I am totally for the LADY X idea in that it should be an episodic theme that is the same from beginning to end.
This gives us all the same agenda and element. It also will showcase all of our work and more importantly our styles as writers, directors and DP's.
Themes that can be used are endless:
These are just ideas. Now let's get this rolling. IF this is rolling, JArred what do you think?

woa, man i dont think the Terrorist idea would be good idea not right now, as it may upset alot of people,
Its a very sensitive issue, not to mention it opens the floodgate to a wider complex political/social/ theological debute about Terrorism,
I should know as i've i am in the process of writing an in depth analysis of terrorism , and with out starting a whole new topic (its complicated please lets leave it at that)
SO.. back too this Global Film project, how about we call it FILM X??
whadya think? 8)

I understand your concern on the TERRORIST theme. I apologise if it seemed thoughtless. I take those matters very seriously and have a deep concern for the current situation our world finds us in. It wasn't meant to have it taken lightly.
FILM X is cool. Is that a ripoff of LADY X ? Sounds too similar, huh? Come on people! YOu know you wanna do it!

If this is a bad idea just say it. Jeeez.

Zombie Apocalypse, while bankable as a feature project, probably would be difficult to maintain consistency between disparate teams.
The reasons I like how Lady X is structured:
1) The only recurrent character is a woman whose face we never see, so its easy to have different groups add material.
2) The overall idea is serializable.
3) Spy stuff lends itself to internationalization.
Can we come up with an original theme that accomplishes all of the above?

Im open for pretty much anything. I'd love to do a spy thing.

Spy , and CIA intelligent movies are really cool right now i mean you 24 as an example, and the X-files, in the UK we havea series called 'Spooks' basically MI5 and MI6 type drama you know people leading two lives sorta thing, would work really well.

24 is a serious bedwetter. I had rented the DVD's for season 1 and watched them all back to back. A few continuity issues but on the whole bloody amazing.

Let's do a SPY type espionage thing then.

:'( Is this an idea that is going to die? :-[

Its a very good idea.. maybe I would get involved after the DVXUser.com Film Festival is done.
01-07-2004, 08:36 PM
Well duh. Of course it is after the DVXuser film fest! You don't think I'd do that over the DV-X-Fest do you!?
Well, speaking of the DV X Fest; what's the scoop? Or will details be coming?
Sides. I wouldn't want to do the other without you anyway!
