Human. > Script Development > A Scene Somewhere In The Middle
by: Marcus Snagglepuss

Okay, here's a scene ... it's not very good I'm afraid ... but I can only get better ... any help will be greatly appreciated ... INT. UNIVERSITY CAMPUS. It is the start of a new semester and the sport's hall is filled with students looking for fun activities. A general huh-bub. EVE GREEN sits behind a table and talks to another student standing in front of her. She jots on a notepad. There is a short queue of people waiting behind. The next in line is LUCIFER, he is a bit older than everyone else, and a Simcrean. LUCIFER Hi EVE Hi, can I help you? LUCIFER I'd like to sign up. EVE Well, okay. (beat) You are a student, aren't you? LUCIFER What? EVE A student? This is the Eco Society. You know, Hug-a-Tree. For students, right? LUCIFER What? Oh yeah, yes, I'm a student. Can you sign me up or not? EVE Okay, alright then. So what's your name Mr ... ? LUCIFER Lucifer. Lucifer, with an 'ell. EVE Okay ... (writing) Lu-ci-fer. And what's your first name? LUCIFER Lucifer. EVE Lucifer Lucifer? Are you toying with me, mister? LUCIFER No, it's just Lucifer. Where I come from, we only have one name. EVE Why? (smiling) Are you the devil or something? LUCIFER (smiles) Yes, you might say that. (beat) Can we get a bite to eat, I'm starving? EVE No, sorry, I don't think so, Mister Lucifer. I'm very busy here, you know. LUCIFER (turns to students waiting behind) Boo! (waits for line to melt into the crowd) No, you're not. Come on, Miss Green. I have some information. That device you found is very dangerous ... EVE What device? (beat) Hey, how do you know about that? You're not really a student, are you? And how do you know my name? LUCIFER It's on your name tag. Eve Green. Now, can we talk or not? EVE Um. (beat) Yeah, okay, just give me a minute. EVE whispers to one of the other students behind the desk and they switch places. She puts on her coat. EVE and LUCIFER walk off together, pushing through the crowd.

I think it's easier if I give you an outline. There should be no university involved as the characters are older (late 20s). The main character (the female) is sort of an accidental hero who falls into everything. She finds the device while jogging in the Hollywood Hills and takes it home. From there a Simcrean agent tracks her down to retrieve the device and that's how she falls into all the action. She then feels that she is being followed and enlists a male friend of hers to help. Sort of like the feel of The Terminator in that regard. Also when it comes to names, try and stick with more common names, Eve for example is fine but a name like Lucifer comes off a bit goofy. Also please keep in mind this is a short so the whole movie is only about 10-15 min long. It would be best to post the script as a .doc or .pdf file. I hope that helps. Thanks!!!

Human. > Script Development > A Scene Somewhere In The Middle
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.

INT. UNIVERSITY CAMPUS. It is the start of a new semester and the sport's hall is filled with students looking for fun activities.

A general huh-bub. EVE GREEN sits behind a table and talks to another student standing in front of her. She jots on a notepad.

There is a short queue of people waiting behind. The next in line is LUCIFER, he is a bit older than everyone else, and a Simcrean.

LUCIFER

Hi

EVE

Hi, can I help you?

LUCIFER

I'd like to sign up.

EVE

Well, okay. (beat) You are a student, aren't you?

LUCIFER

What?

EVE

A student? This is the Eco Society. You know, Hug-a-Tree. For students, right?

LUCIFER

What? Oh yeah, yes, I'm a student. Can you sign me up or not?

EVE

Okay, alright then. So what's your name Mr ... ?

LUCIFER

Lucifer. Lucifer, with an 'ell.

EVE

Okay ... (writing) Lu-ci-fer.
And what's your first name?

LUCIFER

Lucifer.

EVE

Lucifer Lucifer? Are you toying with me, mister?

LUCIFER

No, it's just Lucifer. Where I come from, we only have one name.

EVE

Why? (smiling) Are you the devil or something?

LUCIFER
(smiles)

Yes, you might say that. (beat) Can we get a bite to eat, I'm starving?

EVE

No, sorry, I don't think so, Mister Lucifer. I'm very busy here, you know.

LUCIFER
(turns to students waiting behind)

Boo!

(waits for line to melt into the crowd)

No, you're not. Come on, Miss Green. I have some information. That device you found is very dangerous ...

EVE

What device? (beat) Hey, how do you know about that? You're not really a student, are you? And how do you know my name?

LUCIFER

It's on your name tag. Eve Green. Now, can we talk or not?

EVE

Um. (beat) Yeah, okay, just give me a minute.

EVE whispers to one of the other students behind the desk and they switch places. She puts on her coat. EVE and LUCIFER walk off together, pushing through the crowd.

Humanposter

We have decided to change the main storyline of Human. The main reasons are we felt that the current story we were developing was a bit to clichéd and basic. It was also becoming too difficult to shoot for our budget and within the 10-12 minute run-time we'd like to achieve.

The new storyline starts off the same with our female character finding a strange object while jogging. She brings the object home. That night while she's asleep, an alien creature comes out from the object and terrorizes her in her apartment.

The ideas we are looking for are what events happen between her and the creature through the night. We are aiming for suspenseful and scary.

Please list ideas for specific scenes. Remember everything takes place in her apartment and she is alone.

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

Vipul, Excellent! For now, just hold on until we get the opening sequence completed and then you can take it over to do all the sound. Welcome aboard and thanks! Pasha

Excellent! I look forward to it... Yes, I have some work on my myspace page; www.myspace.com/vraithatha I do have a complete showreel on DVD. I also have a 5.1 surround sound showreel where I carried out an assignment on Half Life 2, sound designing and mixing. I look forward to seeing the completed opening sequence. If there is anything else I could help with please let me know :) Regards, Vips

What about a tagline for "Human" ? How about this ... If it looks Human and it sounds Human ... then it might just be a Simcrean.

That's a good. I like it! Let's use it. I'll update the poster with that tag line.

Human. > Creation of opening sequence > 1st finished draft od planet explosion
by: Allan Palmer

Hey, Have look and tell me what you think. Its been converted to lower res to reduce file size. Allan

AWESOME!!! I love it. Exactly what I was hoping for. I emailed you but I'll go ahead and mention it here as well. Can we have a shot that precedes this shot of on the ground of the planet showing volcanic eruptions and lava oozing up from cracks in the ground, pretty much the plant destabilizing. Then we cut to the planet exploding. Then we cut to the meteor hurdling to Earth (Los Angeles) and finally crashing down and impact. That should cover all the CGI needed for the opening.

I have done a rough opening sequence to show the pace and style I'd like the opening sequence to be. As this is a short film, it should give the back story within 2 minutes. I need 3D artists and sound designers.

Human. > Creation of opening sequence > Texts
by: Daniel Saarimäki

Those texts run a bit too fast. I can't read them all. Those space pics are awesome! You need a 3D artist, but what should be done? Most projects here have separated tasks for single 3D objects or scenes. Those tasks have detailed information about the object or scene, so it's easy to start making the model.
