There’s seems to be plenty of movie-based discussion in here, so here’s a chance to test your knowledge and have a little creative fun.
The aim is to create, cast and crew a single film.
– Snake Draft
– 8 Players
– 12 Rounds
– 8 hours per pick.
You can pick from:
– Any actor or actress in history
– Any film-crewmember in history (director, score-composer, ect)
There is no specific structure that you must follow. You are free to divide up your picks any way you want between crew and cast. This draft is meant to test your knowledge of the film-making process as much as film history.
In the judging phase, it will be assumed that any position on the crew or cast not filled by a pick will be filled by a faceless professional of no better than average ability.
There is one twist…
– You will also need to draft a script for your film. There are two ways to do this:
Draft the rights to adapt or re-make a film, novel, TV series, comic-book, video game or life-story.
For example: I draft the rights to adapt Stephen King’s novel Cell into my film.
In this situation you will need to assign the actors and actresses you draft to specific characters within your script.
It will be assumed that your director will write the adaptation.
Draft a screen-writer and pick a genre for them. It will be assumed that they produce an original script for your film.
For Example: I draft Mitchell Hurwitz to write a Comedy screenplay.
Either way, your script uses up one pick and can be used in any round you choose.
There are no specific judging criteria. Just try and create the most appropriate mix of talent for your film and it will be judged on its merit as a whole product.
I’ll check back in 12 hours to check the sign ups and randomise the order if we’re ready.
