Hi all, if we want this movie to be a success, do you think it would be a good idea
to try and go for a famous actor, for voiceover work for our main character?
Worth a try, and this would create massive hype!!
Stephen fry might be tempted......

Wow, that's an ambitious idea. It would be bloody amazing if we could get someone of that calibre to even contribute just a line or two, which I think is more feasible. Even a B-list celeb would be good. I'm sure that Stephen Fry's pretty busy.

This motley crew might be a more likely level i think - worth a try to see how much they would cost - I've heard Vince has loadsamoney

Sometimes actors do things like this Purely for artistic reasons, and yes they work
For NOWT sometimes... if, IF, We can make a knockout script, and hype it up who
Knows.
Remember all of us are doing this for Nowt, why not try for someone famous

Maybe down the line once we have a few cracking movies under our belt that we could show to prospective voice artists, along with a dazzling script some one may feel charitable enough to contribute but I think the chances of enticing big names for movie no.1 is a bit of a pipe dream just now.
Who knows though, stranger things have happened..

Cheers

Im happy to give as many voices as i can muster, as im sure danimal and others are too!

Unknown voice actors are sometimes better in my opinion as you only have the characters image in your head and not the actor.

I think we have good voice talent here, but what I'm trying to get over is to try and create massive hype in the project, even if we get a B lister name involved.
I think Vince and his team deserve a good show.
We have to make this a Big UTube hit.
I know Arnies available, lol

If his rates are free then fair enough!
I dont think anyone should gave to put there hands in their pockets for a project such as this. Not everyone would be willing (or able) to stump up hard cash

Let's keep money out of this as far as production is concerned, or we could end up with everyone wanting a wage for their input

Better to just concentrate on making a great movie and not on what we or others can make out of it.

Cheers

Yes I agree totallly - by reasonable I was hinting at something less (!) but I guess as he is a "big player" in the machinima community he would not be able to do that as he would be inundated

I agree with Dreeko. Who ever is involved with a project such as this should concentrate on making the best possible movie they can. There seems to be an abundance of great talent here in Muvizuland and a lot of people willing to collaborate.

Make a great movie and the recognition will definitely follow.

just before the end Turin and Stephen Hawkings turn up in the time machine
Just a little starter, any ideas?

I think making it a bit like Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (not exactly like it) would make an improvement- meaning the central character is made up or a relative of Neville.C, this makes it easier to make control the time changes because you would have an onlooker from a totally different time and we can easily build up a likeable character or a character you would love to hate and see him fail even if it's against hitler

Here's a suggestion for how the first scene might go. Feel free to comment. Any criticism will be much appreciated, even if followed swiftly by a bombardment of death threats.

Back to the
Führer

Scene One
(A Nazi general is walking purposefully through the corridors of Hitler’s bunker. He goes through a large pair of double doors into Hitler’s office. Hitler is sitting at his desk. Behind him is a large swastika-adorned flag. On the walls on either side are a picture of Hitler and Stalin smiling together with ‘Me and Joe ‘39’ written on it, a newspaper clipping saying ‘Hitler approval ratings 112% for 3rd year running’ and a graph with ‘Number of Jews’ plotted over ‘Baby deaths’, the line going sharply downwards).
General (gently and anxiously): Mein Führer, word has just reached us that General Steiner has been unable to mobilise troops.
(Pause).
He will not be able to come to Berlin’s rescue.
(Pause).
Hitler (quietly, shocked): How long... until Berlin is encircled?
General: It will be... several days at most, Mein Führer.
(Pause).
Hitler (in a hollow voice, eyes wide): Several days... all is lost... Germany will fall.
(Pause).
Hitler: Goodbye, cruel world.
(He reaches for a gun on his table).
General (hurriedly): Wait, Mein Führer! All is not lost just yet! There is one thing which may be able to save Germany.
Hitler (desperately): Go on.
General: Admittedly, it’s a last resort, and might well not work...
Hitler (reaching for the gun): Goodbye, cruel world...
General (hurriedly): ...but it could work! It could!
Hitler (pausing over the gun): What is it, then?
General: A secret project upon which the military has been working for ten years. Germany’s finest scientific minds have been recruited to assist in its development, as well as Germany’s finest mime artist... not quite sure why.
Hitler (building in anger): Wait. So you are telling me that there has been a project which could win us the war under development for ten whole years and nobody thought to tell me?
(Pause. He becomes sad).
Hitler (his voice cracking): That’s so mean.
(He reaches for the gun).
General (with a hint of irritation): Mein Führer, we considered it necessary that you have plausible deniability. Had you been captured by the enemy, the whole project, and with it the future of the Third Reich, could have been compromised.
(Pause).
Hitler: What an awful thought.
(He reaches for the gun. The general slams his hand on Hitler’s).
General: Stop it!
Hitler (leaning back in his chair): Sorry, I get emotional sometimes. Very well. Show it to me.
(It cuts to Hitler and the general walking up to a large metal door, at either side of which is an armed guard).
Guard: Stop. Pass code?
General: Oh... um... it’s on the tip of my tongue...
(He clicks his fingers, trying to remember. The other guard flaps his arms behind the first guard’s back).
General: That’s it! Blackbird!
(The guard pushes a button and the door slides open. Hitler and the general go in).
General: Welcome, Mein Führer, to Operation Indigo Sword of Soul-Tearing Hellfire and the Blood-soaked Apocalypse.
(It zooms out to show them in a vast room with a large number of scientists scurrying around a large object with a cloth draped over it. A scientist approaches).
General: This is Dr. Engel Grinder, the scientific genius who is known at Belsen as ‘The Angel of Doom’.
(Dr. Grinder turns round to reveal that he has ‘The Angel of Doom’ written on his back).
Grinder: Ta-dah!
General (impatiently, flatly): Very nice.
(A mime artist walks up, salutes, and starts doing the glass box actions).
General: And this is Gotthold Ovitt, Germany’s greatest mime artist.
Hitler: What’s he saying?
General: It’s probably ‘Hail the motherland.’
Grinder: No, he’s pretending to be stuck in a glass box.
General: Oh, I see.
Grinder: Anyhow, Mein Führer, what you are about to see is a device which, if all goes to plan, could well transform the fortunes of the Third Reich. Operation Indigo Sword of Soul-Tearing Hellfire and the Blood-soaked Apocalypse is, I believe, our last hope.
Hitler: Its name’s a bit overdone, isn’t it?
General: Told you, Engel.
Grinder: Well, it’s better than your idea, with that poncey foreign word.
General: Blitzkrieg.
Grinder: That’s the one.
General: Enough of this. Unveil the device!
(Several scientists rush round, and the cloth is pulled off, unveiling a Wells-esque time machine).
General: Behold: the world’s first and only... time machine!
(Sinister music plays, as the camera zooms in to the time machine).

Oh, and then it zooms to Hitler's face and he says...
Yes! YES! With this, a glorious new age for the Nazis shall begin: the Third Reich... in the fourth dimension!

I particularly like Hitler continuing to reach for the gun for different reasons, and overall it's a good start to what would be a good comedy.

I am not, however, a fan of pointing out jokes. I come more from the school of Airplane and the like where a joke gets funnier if no one reacts to it. So Hitler's "sorry I get emotional" or the doctor's "ta dah" when his lab coat is revealed are gags I would definitely want to remove.

The whole thing does play as a good "teaser" to the movie. I can picture an opening credits sequence rolling after Hitler's final line.

I think when the General tells Hitler about Berlins inevitable defeat, we should have a
bit of the movie Downfall in there but takes his anger out on the poster of him
And Stalin instead of his generals. Ripping it up then putting the gun to his head.

Interesting points, Danimal. I like Airplane too, and I agree about the 'Sorry, I get emotional' line, but I can't think of any reason why Doctor Grinder would turn round if not to show off his name. And yes, I did intend this to be the pre-credits sequence.

Artpen, yes, I did consider a Downfall parody, but it's already quite long. Although I might be able to fit one in elsewhere.

I think if we get stuck with awkward lines we should try to get the point over by no dialog, but body language, or facial expression, maybe using dreekos eyebrow
movement?
I strongly think we should try to keep dialog down for maximum comedy effect.
