Talking Machinima Contest Phase 1--Writer's Block

To all writers and would-be-writers! Here is your chance to practice up your skills!

The Task:

To develop a script for a new machinima series based on the Serious Sam franchise.

The Rules:

The script must have around a five minute runtime.
The script must have at least three characters (the more the better).
You are not allowed to use racist or sexual content.
It must relate to games in some way.
It must be entertaining.
Everything else is up to you! ..within reason.

Good luck!

When this phase of the contest is over we will move on to the next one, which
will consist of finding people to play these characters, and separate voice actors if necessary.

Basicly its machine animated content like useing the demo record in SAM to make a movie.
He wants you to write the words for the actors.

"Machinima: The art of using a pre-rendered gaming engine and making it into a film.The word is derived from:Machine and Cinema."

Basically you're writing the script for a small movie.

Ok some examples of machinima creations:

YouTube Video: Red vs Blue - PSA - The Internet versus Real Life

More from Halo:
10 ways to tell if you're a noob
Frequency - Halo 2 Comedy

YouTube Video: BF2 Mine 1 - Part 2

BF2 Mine 1 - Part 1
More from Battlefield 2:
BF2 Mine 2 - Part 1/3
Frost by Snoken (Battlefield 2142)

Does that work as enough of an explanation?

With there really being so few controllable characters with Sam, this is quite a challenge. BF2 one is mostly funny when takes multiple characters at once.

Hmm, how about "Tedious Sam- The Movie"? No really, can't be a bad idea, right?

(Those of you who do not know what Tedious Sam is, it's my SS2 comic, check my showcase thread)

It's impossible to edit models' meshes unless Croteam gives you the sources unlike SS1 where you can just export models and edit them as much as you want.

I think it should be like a kind of a challenge between SS1 and SS2 with stuff from both games used. Sam2 and Sam1 had an argument about who is more awesome so they started a war and so on...

Maybe for you but most of the machinima I see has neither. Red vs Blue, Snoken, and other great series have very little to no racist or sexual content and they are uber popular. Don't be so close-minded.

Feh. You're just jealous because I have a mind like a steel trap. I'll assume that you know I was joking earlier, though. Just because I prefer to make content that pushes the boundaries of decency, doesn't mean that my skills are limited to blue material.

I didn't know you were joking. Anyway, I would be open to some things but as an official machinima they would need to be approved first. I find some stuff to be quite funny and others to be quite offensive. There is no limitation to the number of revisions you can make to your submission, so try some things and I'll take a look.

I think that the hoster of the Siriusopolis Arenas game is very funny We could use similar voice for narration! I'm trying to build up a script now
What about musical? Would be extremelly funny, like Serious Sam - an epic Rock Opera.. hehe, nearly impossible, right?
We must take famous things and make a parody of them

Keep in mind that this will be a series not a single episode. And Serious Sam is all about mocking other games.

There is no point in mocking something if nobody knows you are mocking it.

How about self-gratification? That's a valid point to be made for secretly mocking something.

The point is to be entertaining for other people. So how is your script going?

Who all is participating in this?
