Human. > Creation of opening sequence > Sound Design
by: Vipul Raithatha

Hi, your project sounds great. With it being quite sci-fi there is alot of scope with regards to sound design. I would be very happy to help out wherever possible. Is it possible to see a script for the completed opening sequence so I can have a look at which sounds are required? I will be honest with you, all of the experience of sound designing I have so far has all been for my university projects. I would definitely love to give this a shot if you give me the opportunity. Regards, Vips

Human. > Script Development > Plot Point #3
by: Marcus Snagglepuss

Okay, here's the last scene ... I have no idea if you will like this ... in any case, I have to take a break for Krimbo ... so maybe it will grow on you by the New Year ... If so, I know exactly how to re-write the scene for plot point #1 in a more manageable form ... it involves putting Alice in a flouncy babydoll night-dress and fluffy pink slippers ... And perhaps the shower scene should be cold water if you want to thwart the Simcrean's heat-seeking tracker ... besides, that would be more refreshing after a sweaty jog in a steamy environment ... and maybe A & C are DC, but that's probably a bit too tacky and obvious ??? ... Anyway, if you do go for all of this, then I will be very interested to see how you persuade all of the actors and actresses to strip off in the name of art ... although, as you said, nudity is very human in a basic sort of way ... and it fits in well with the global warming theme ... so, if done tastefully, then it might well make the film more popular ...

Yeah that scene is good but won't work for what I have in mind. Let's avoid any Simcrean specific scenes. The background on the Simcreans won't be shown. It'll just be mentioned in dialogue throughout the movie. That's fine, if you want to make it a cold shower that works. This is how it should start off, as I wrote in the Plot Point 1 section: 1. Simcream landing in a remote part of the hills in his craft and begins to look for the device. He'll use some kind of tracking device which can read faint heat signatures of things even after they are gone. He'll track the specific heat signature of the device to where it was and find that it's not there. His tracking device will also be able to see the path of the girl's heat trail right back to her apartment. 2. Realizing someone took it (the girl) he then follows the heat trail which leads to her apartment and the actions begins. 3. Girl entering her apartment. As she was just out jogging, naturally she gets in the shower. This is important cause the cold shower will kill off her and the device's heat trail so when the agent gets to the apartment he no longer can track her. 4. After her shower she gets ready and head off to her boyfriends apartment taking the device with her to show him. The agent arrives at her apartment to find she has already left, with no heat trail to follow anymore (because of the shower) he starts looking through her things to try and figure out where she could have gone. 5. ...and beyond ...continue with her eventually meeting up with her friend at the pool bar and the agent chasing them into the car. Let's get to that point and we'll figure out how to finish the 2nd half. As far as nudity there is no real nudity. You can show someone in the shower without showing all of them. This isn't a porno. The shower scene actually has a point for the story, it's not just a random scene thrown in. Besides, this is LA, trust me there are tons of girls who would have no problem with it, haha. Let's break for a week until after New years. We'll start up after Jan 1. Have a good holidays!

I need help in developing the script. I have the basic outline but have some writers block. Any writers out there who have a good mind for Sci-fi, I'd like to collaborate with to make this short film script. Here are the main points for the story: - It takes place in the Hollywood Hills and Los Angeles. - The alien is in a human male form in his 30s. - The hero of the story is a female in her 20s. - The device has crash landed here embedded in a meteorite which came from a planet called Ternoira that exploded once all it's energy was depleted by the device. - The hero girl finds the device randomly while jogging in the hills. The alien then begins to look for her to get the device back. - Once she understands what the device does and what the alien wants to do with it, she realizes no one will believe her and she has to stop him herself. These are the main points of the story. Other characters can be added. So these events all need to be linked together to create a good plot.

Human. > Script Development > A plot development
by: Vignesh Krish

Hey, Think of something on the line of this. The alien is here to recover the fallen device and re-enable it. The main reason for re-enabling the fallen device is because it drains the whole energy from the planet and re-creates an alternate dimension where the previous planet can be traveled to. The only part the humans know of the device is that it drains Earth. However, the alien is actually using the device to get back to his/her home planet by sacrificing another planet. When the human girl learns about this, what is her reaction? What will be her psychological torment? We don't have enough time, what should we do? Actually, what will a 20-odd year girl would do? Think about it.

These are all very good points. Marcus Snagglepuss has already started the script. Touch base with him and collaborate with him on your ideas. The main plot and storyline has been done and I don't want it to change much at all, however, as you mention the psychology and reaction of the characters needs to be developed more. Speak to Marcus about this to work on the actual character development itself. That way the dialogue is more believable if the true feelings of the characters are better reflected through their dialogue.

I like that scene! Let's keep it but a couple changes... 1. Change the President to the Simcrean agent whose been following her. 2. Instead of jumping into a cab make it a random car (with a male driver) that's driving by. It would be realistic cause what guy wouldn't stop for 2 pretty girls in bikinis screaming for him to stop, haha. Make those 2 changes and I say we have our first solid scene! :-) Great job!

Okay, here is another scene ... I have no idea if this is the sort of thing that you want ... but maybe we can bash it into shape later ... I will write two more scenes, one for each of the plot points ... and, if you are reasonably happy, then we can develop it from there ...

The first first scene is a CGI shot of the meteor crashing and the former planet exploding but we have already started on that so you don't have to write it in. Your first scene should open up with her jogging in the hills and she stumbles upon the device. We'll make the device cool looking so she is intrigued and takes it home to later show her boyfriend. The next scene will show the Simcream landing in a remote part of the hills in his craft and begins to look for the device. He'll use some kind of tracking device which can read faint heat signatures of things even after they are gone. He'll track the specific heat signature of the device to where it was and find that it's not there. His tracking device will also be able to see the path of the girl's heat trail right back to her apartment. Realizing someone took it (the girl) he then follows the heat trail which leads to her apartment and the actions begins. T next scene will show the girl entering her apartment. As she was just out jogging, naturally she gets in the shower. This is important cause the hot shower will kill off her and the device's heat trail so when the agent gets to the apartment he no longer can track her. After her shower she gets ready and head off to her boyfriends apartment taking the device with her to show him. The agent arrives at her apartment to find she has already left, with no heat trail to follow anymore (because of the shower) he starts looking through her things to try and figure out where she could have gone. Start with that and then add the next scene and then we can go from there. Sound good?
