Story writer? Read this.

Post by mimmyjambo on Sun Jun 03, 2012 1:56 am

OK, so, I'm not going to rewrite a whole MC forums post to tailor it for you lot ;) So, here's the post as it is on the MC forums.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm James, co-founder of an already successful YouTube channel called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Founded in February this year, we have already gained nearly 100 subscribers and 10,000 video views, with massive audience interaction including 200 likes and 300 comments. There are two staff members other than myself: Tom (Dark/DarkDJ) and Hugh. We focus mainly on train related stuff, but I have decided we should branch out into other things. This film is going to be a significant part in that.

If you're a writer, Problem Productions needs you!

So far, we have two writers including myself. We need more! We're looking for several people to help us with the story line, plot, and eventually, the script itself. If you're an up and coming YouTuber, then this film could be a great opportunity to get yourself out there to a wide audience, which we will be more than happy to do, as we will credit you for the work you do to help with the film - all the time and effort you put in.

The film is planned to be a full, feature length piece of at least 80 minutes approx. with room for sequels. The theme is wholly medieval, and follows Benedict as he is thrown into a different land by life's brutal hand. We aim to make the film effective, professional, realistic and sensible.

Writers can apply however they wish. Feel free to reply to this thread with anything you deem to be a suitable application - I don't want to confine any applicants to a specific application format in order to allow you to apply in whatever manner you like! You can apply through PM to me, as well.

I would rather any applicants had Skype, but email is pretty sufficient. We do ask that you are willing to use Celtx, which is what we are using for editing and sharing documents, using cloud storage.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks in advance to all applicants.

An iccle bump to say that there's now a video you can share with your friends to advertise this if you think they're right for the job!

Well, I've got a lot on my plate ATM, but I may be able to help out a little. I'll see about getting that horridly Cliche story I wrote up back in year 6 back onto my PC then emailing that in. Other than that my English marks are straight A+s, full marks for all pieces this year, and I have been told a lot of my strength in creative writing lies in dialogue, for whatever that's worth. I'll send in something proper a bit later, considering I've got work soon, then exams, then everything else, but at the very least I'll be willing to help on the side with brainstorming, proofreading and possibly some dialogue if you need it.
Yeah, I'll get around to writing something a bit later.

Awesome! At the moment we're just putting together a simple plot. Then we'll add more detail, and finally start scripting.

Any contributions are appreciated.

PS: well done on getting such good marks! =3

Well, I do mostly short stories, and they're all ero/"Romance"
Not sure if you're looking for that at all. I run a blog where I post said stories and I get around 1k page views a week or so when I post a new story or update a previous one.

Kay, well we've just about got a completed storyline for the first film... I'm waiting to hear back from one of my two co-writers on what he thinks of it, and if he gives the green light we'll start storyboarding and eventually scripting.

'dafi, I think you might come in handy for the sequel, but that's a way off yet :P

I don't write much, but I am pretty creative and I write mini-story line for my D&D campaign and all 5 of my players are really hooked into it! I'd love to help! :D

I'm a decent story writer. i just need a detail of two on what needs to happen, and i can make up the fancy gibberish in between the major action points.

@Sea: this thread is a little old, yeah, but the project is still going, so... Iunno.

Levodicus, we've got the actual story sorted. I can send you a copy if you like.

What we now need to do is any necessary things prior to scripting - and then of course script it. I'm concerned that we may be in need of more actors than we can get our hands on at once, though. Do you have Skype? PM me your username and I'll add you =3

I assumed need for more volunteers wouldn't be needed, since you have already kicked off the project I thought. Thus, no more need for this thread.

Anope, sorry Sea, we've got a small team but it's not enough and the fair simple story outline is all we got. Not your fault, you didn't know.
