So, I got this idea to get Nerdfighteria together and write a movie.  Who will make the movie?  We will figure that out later.  

I can keep track of the official draft.  People can write ideas and even whole scenes for this movie.  We can discuss characters and how they should interact and change over the movie.  The finished product doesn't even need to be that great (in fact it probably won't be), but it just needs to be fun to make and write, so we have a complete film that was written, produced and directed by Nerdfighters (does John or Hank feel like making a cameo?).


So, anyway, before we can start writing we need an idea.  Should it be romantic?  Action packed?  Give your thoughts below. 


September 11, 2011  (Guide to the Unnamed Nerdfighter Collaborative Movie Project (UNCMP)

This list should hold most every idea discussed about this film in this thread so far. If you see anything missing or inaccurate on this list, let me (Vince T) know and I will do my darndest to fix it during the next update.

If an idea receives a good deal of interest, it will automatically be moved to the ‘liquids’ list. 

If you think something that has seen a fair deal of discussion deserves to be in the film, feel free to propose moving it to the ‘solids’ list. If it sees enough support, it will be moved.

Directors: These guys have last say on all things and help to keep the movie running smoothly.
(Main Director) Gillman
(Mrs. Manager) Laura
(Mr. Manager) Vince T

Main Characters

-Lincolnstein: Cross of Albert Einstein and Abraham Lincoln (possible time traveling accident) who is nefarious. Kidnaps babies from the evil baby orphanage to start his "Dangerous Formation of the Terrible Baby Army".

-Willy Bubbles the Nerdfighting Puppy Pirate & Jerry the Tap-dancing Duck Ninja: leaders of the Pirate and Ninja factions (respectively) that are constantly at war on the island. The two share a deep animosity for one another. Will probably have a big face-off at the end.

-Jenga: Female protagonist. A clever young lady who is new to the island. Has a plot point attached to her that takes advantage of a metaphor tied into the physical/mental skill game she shares her name with. Has a penchant for witty fun dialogue. 

-Dorian: Male love interest. Time traveling nerd-hunk ala Doctor (take your pick of Doctor iterations). Just as sharp as Jenga at least when it comes to snappy dialogue.

Character List:
-Mark Taylor: committed worker for the evil baby orphanage
-Natalie Spiegelman: a passionate girl with issues of trust
-Tiny Cooper: the finder of beauty in all things
-Queen Ranavalona I (as evil baby)
-Hitler (as evil baby)
-Vlad the Impaler (as evil baby)
-Queen Bathory (as evil baby)
-Stalin (as evil baby)
-Napoleon (as evil baby)(or possibly as a good baby)
- Hal: the main character’s supervisor at their job on the island

-Katherine: Love Interest

  3. Peeps come alive and attack
  4. They are saved by Bubbles
  5. The peeps coming alive is a sign of Lincolstein coming for Nerdfighteria

Once the first scene is written, and as we see how the story is set up, we will decide on the next section.

Wow, OK this is going to be tricky...

If we did: 08:00 AEST, 16:00 CST, 17:00 EST, and 22:00 GMT? (Pretty sure this is right)

I think this may be one of the only ways to fit everyone in together, with AEST and GMT so far apart... thoughts?

I'm good for 5pm almost any day, as for the other times, I think that should work.
Hmm you are definitely better than me at maths. Those times should work, so just to check, my time would be 8am the following day?
Like Gabriella, I'm just checking, too. So 4 pm? I think I can do that. :)
Which day can people do?   I have a fairly busy schedule.
I can do any day but the 9th or 10th, I think. But on the 13th I leave for three weeks, so if during that time is the only time you guys can do it, go ahead.
This weekend sounds good for me :)
I'm free any day this week except for the 9th (through the 11th).
Well if Kaylee can't do the 9th and Laura can't do the 9th or 10th, how does the 11th (Monday) sound?
That works, I think.
I have a dentist app. on the 11th, but I should be done in time.
I could do that, but probably only briefly, as I am actually still in school and have a french test tuesday morning :/


Youtube Links!

Here are some YT links to channels related to Nerdfighteria and educational content!

*Can you think of any more? Pass along any suggestions to an Admin who will then add it to this list should it fit!
