So ZOMBIEFEST and SCIFEST DID'NT FADE YOU

BUT HEROFEST is ............................................... ?Yeah . . . I know this is a popular genre, I just never got into it. I have never gone to the theater to see a single superhero movie. I really liked Sin City, so, I guess it's not the comic book, er, graphic novel genre I don't like--it's the superhero element I don't like, I guess. I don't mean to be a whiner, and I know a lot of you are really excited about this selection. For example, I was really excited about V for Vendetta, since I like sci-fi a lot (and who doesn't like looking at Natalie Portman?), especially negative utopia stories, but then I found out it had a comic book character and I lost all interest.

J.R. Hudson
02-27-2006, 01:10 AM
I dig it

The genre is fairly wide open

Superman
Batman
XMEN
Fantastic 4
Hulk
Spawn
Blade
Flash
Wonder Chick
Thor
Silver Surfer (Yeah baby!)
Spidey
Zorro
Darkman
Hellboy
Unbreakable
Rocketeer
Flash Gordon


Man the list is so open on genres

I'm guessing barry and jarred won't allow us to do previously created superheroes because there'sa risk of copyright enfringement... but we can sure as hell copy them :)

No can do bro. You can't promote your film before the fest and I'm sure you can come up with something new. The plug hadda go.

I wasn't promoting. I was just sayin' that I already made something superhero-related, so I'm definitely game for this.

Yeah, I didn't mean copy as in "steal their powers and name and costume" but more of like emulating their stories... I think I worded that wrong. lol

I'm still hoping for Sci-fest 2, so I can do my original script. FINALLY, the drama is over in my personal life (as of about four hours ago).

pmark23
02-27-2006, 03:44 AM
This will be a challenge -- mostly because I freakin' HATE superheroes.

I predict people running around in long underwear and capes, bad flying greenscreening, and people "walking" up walls (which amazingly look like floors shot at 90 degrees with a light switch stuck to it). Oh, and LOTS of Adobe-brand lightning shooting out of people's hands.

Sign me up! :)

Norm Sanders
02-27-2006, 03:49 AM
Why's all this talk about Super Heros? This isn't called Superhero Fest, it's called Hero Fest.

To me, I think it would open it up even more if the theme was simply heros (see my sig for example), as I'm sure people would LOVE to take this opportunity to honor war veterans, policemen in the line of duty, firemen, doctors who went beyond the call of duty to save someone, etc.

I mean, there could be some INCREDIBLY compelling stories ... especially if the people that wouldn't normally enter because they don't dig Superheros, got in on it (i.e NBC Shooter).

Hopefully it's defined soon what a hero is, but in my mind it could be just about anything/anyone ... more of the selfless act itself. As such, I think this will blow the doors off of Zombie Fest ... and may be an incredibly uplifting & memorable event.

All that said ... am I in? Don't know. I'll have to converse with waltind.

pmark23
02-27-2006, 04:04 AM
Well, the announcement says "Super Hero Fest".

It would be great if it's just "Hero" -- a lot more potential for great stories.

What's the word? Is it "Hero" or "Superhero"?

Ralph Oshiro
02-27-2006, 04:47 AM
This will be a challenge -- mostly because I freakin' HATE superheroes.Yeah, I hear ya. I tried to be as tactful as I could in my earlier post since Jarred and Barry S work so hard to make these contests happen for us. But I really do hate superheroes as well. I mean, I can't stand 'em! Even as a kid, I never owned one superhero comic book. I've got kind of an idea in my head about what I wanna do--I just don't know if my protagonist will be "super" enough of a hero. I like Envision's "hero" idea a lot, but I don't know if that will wash with powers that be here.

Love your new sig, by the way, Envision!

im in...and i really like hudsons idea with posters and a little promotion BEFORE we see the movies...not only is it more exciting, but its also a big part of the whole process: selling the damn thing...im not talking about threads and xxx-posts just 1 poster & your tagline...

GenJerDan
02-27-2006, 05:40 AM
Hero-fest? You're kidding, right?

What? You don't think you can create a character which hasn't been done before, establish a history and explanation for the powers, set up a conflict, and resolve it, all in 5 minutes? :Drogar-BigGrin(DBG)

Beat Takeshi
02-27-2006, 05:50 AM
We are so there. This time MsManhattan and I are going to actually take time to make this one. With dialog even.

I've alredy done the script! It's gonna be the shorter short movie of the contest...

Script:

INT. ROOM WITH SO MUCH LIGHT - DAY

One guy runs through the room and jups off the window.

FADE TO BLACK

"Hero doesn't exist"

The End

I like Envision's "hero" idea a lot, but I don't know if that will wash with powers that be here.

The only comics I liked when I was a kid were Tin Tin and Asterix (in French). Tin Tin didn't have superpowers, and Asterix's superpowers were fueled by drugs. :dankk2:

I don't have a problem with the concept. My brain is currently whirling through possibilities.

My unfilmed Sci-Fi script would suit with a bit of modification. After all, Superman was an alien. You could shoot a few scenes to add to "Distraction" -- the superhero hunting down the evil terrorists before they blow up the bus (and failing -- where were all the superheroes during 911?) :Drogar-BigGrin(DBG)

But I REALLY like Envisions concept. Let's hope they accept it!

You could shoot a few scenes to add to "Distraction" -- the superhero hunting down the evil terrorists before they blow up the bus . . .Yeah, I was kinda thinking the same thing. That someone could have special, "alien," powers, perhaps. But I wouldn't revisit any themes I used in DISTRACTION. I'd go in a whole new direction. Actually, come to think of it, my unshot sci-fi script couldn't qualify at all. I'm thinking of something new that may work with a little tweaking. I dunno. I really don't like superheroes.

If you check out the unofficial announcement from jarred then he said the theme was superheroes.http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=47766

Barry_S
02-27-2006, 08:49 AM
My inclination is to be pretty inclusive on the themes, but I'll let Jarred weigh in as well and we'll post some more detailed info soon. Then again, it may be odd having Donate-A-Kidney Man compete against The Flaming Mutant.

Put me on the list Briceman. Another first-timer. But totally pumped. Is the name Briceman copy protected? Just kidding.

NBCshooter, there are in the comic-books a lot of so-called super-heros that haven't got any power (i.e. Batman), I think you could even start a brand new kind of super-hero without mask. Why not?

I am on the other side, I read comic-books since I was able to read, but I always preferred the classical anti-hero, Spidey, who suffers quotidian troubles when he puts out his mask.

I even invented about 50 super-heros with different powers, draw my own comic-books and wrote a lot of histories for them. Now I have to choose.

So, Briceman, of course, count me in. Thanks!
Pablo

Briceman, boy, where do you get the time?
Looks like you are in four threads at the same time! :Drogar-BigGrin(DBG)

Norm Sanders
02-27-2006, 09:36 AM
DRAT, you're right Silverwolf, he did say the theme was Super Hero ... better change out that banner.

Would be cool, however, to have it be more open for heros in general, but if someone's creative they can still make a killer Super Hero movie without having to be cliche' with blue/red tights, etc.

I've gotta agree with John. I think that this fest is going to be a lot of fun and show some really unique perspectives on genre blending. I think that the creativity that this will bring out is going to be great, but most importantly I think that we're going to see some more great films.

I'm excited, got my idea all set up, now just gotta get it penned.

I can pretty much guarantee Jim (InsightBlue) is in again. "A New Tomorrow" was about the first thing he ever finished (the occasional vacation tape aside, heh) and we're all pumped to try again. I know he feels like he's learned a lot, and we're all anxious to toss around more script ideas. Plus, we know some dynamite costume people if we can just find someone built enough to pull them off. ;)

Wow, this whole HeroFest seemed to happen overnight. I'm definitely stoked.

I know I said this to myself after Zombiefest and after SciFest, but I'm going to start working on this now. Pre-production begins today. It'll be good to have more than a two-week period to start and finish a film for the contest. I always seem to put myself into these cramming situations after sitting on my butt for a month or two.

I've already started the script and prelim casting. I think I'm in the drivers seat now.

Good Stuff. I'm definitely in.

Should this be strictly a superhero contest; or should it not be limited to that, and have it be heroes in general? Because there is a difference.

Also, has there been an official announcement yet? I can't seem to find anything like that.

Okay, Brandon, I THINK you can add me to the list now. At first waltind told me he'd have to sit this one out due to his schedule, AND my wife wanted me to sit it out as well, since we're working on a longer production for this summer.

But, like she said last night, it's in my blood.

Came up with a hero yesterday, and a fairly thought out story ... my personal trainer who's got the stereo typical physique is drooling over the chance to do it (just have to see if he can deliver on camera before hand), and there so much we learned doing PANDORA that this one should be better than PANDORA as PANDORA was to DEATH MARCH (1st attempt).

Oh, and waltind likes the idea enough that he's pretty tempted (I'm sure I'll get him to do it :) ).

That said, count me in for now, please.

Composer's on board as well, and will hopefully start working on a theme in the next week or so.

Initially I like it alot, but if you're looking for input/critiques, I'd make the HEROFEST font just more bold & clean ... not the broken look at the bottom of it.

Was there a downloadable Sci-Fest poster I missed? I know there was one for Zombie Fest.

TIGHT! I agree with Norm, a cleaner font for Herofest... something slicker...

Wow, Jack! One skilled cat, to say the least! The font's better, but still not IT, IMO, but adding the extra dude is cool too! Anyway to make it a chick? One with a DVX, the other with a HVX?

yeah font is not right -- this was quick and easy

as for making one a chick -- well if you notice I just fliped the other dude, cut his arm off, used color replacement tool on Photoshop and painted his hair and face a little and traced around the broken edges (badly) so no, only way to make one a chick is if the artist draws a chick -- which I wasn't suggesting this be used anyway -- just a concept thing I thought was cool ... big brother HVX and sidekick DVX, though some DVXers mught not like that lol. But a chick might be cool.

I believe the title of Herofest should be big like a comic book cover. In fact, the entire poster should mimic a comic book!

http://i.imdb.com/Icons/poster_under_licence.gifyeah that'd be cool, kinda like some of the creepshow stuff (not a creepy font but a clearly comic book one) and a comic book cover for the layout

... though Jarred may be pulling his blond gelled locks out because he's already paid or called his favor in for the poster and asked us to play with just the fonts and I've down a different layout with new artwork and you've come up with an entirely different concept, lol :grin:

Hudson's got a great idea ... like his banner. I think the poster already has much of that comic book cover look ... just needs a little dressing to complete it.

The HERO FEST can be BIG, BOLD and CLEAN right over the top center ... can even cover up some of the cape, portion of the hand, etc. Off to the top left corner can be the dates (like magazine issue, etc.), bar code ... on the upper right hand side have the price or whatever else.

Then at the bottom where they may advertise what's in this issue, it can be the BOLD credits of the film maker(s).
