I don't know, not having a complete script and then animating is really a dangerous path to go down. You could waste countless hours doing a scene and then be greatly dissapointed when you have to cut it out because there is a change in the script.

There is a project going on at OCRemix where the CT songs are being redone in syphony style, and the song structures are based from a script written for a movie. The script writer said himself that it took two years to write his script, and he wouldn't want to put the movie into production because he doesn't feel it is complete. This is no regular person who is writing, he is in college (or already graduated I cant remember which) getting a degree in writing, focusing on movie scripts. You guys might be the best writers possible, but take that to heart.


Wow.  I feel really lucky to have graduated college and all.  And two whole years for one script?  Holy shit, I didn't think that was physically possible.  Like taking a 4-hour long dump. [/PattonOswaltjoke]

No, it didn't take two years to write the script, and I wrote it right after graduating high school.  But the rest is rather accurate.  I have training the equivalent of a college degree, and three years of professional screenwriting classes under my belt.  No, the script is not done (I'm doing major edits very soon), and no, I don't want a movie made from it.  Because it wouldn't work.

There are some things that should just be left to the imagination.  If every Hollywood movie that had a sex scene portrayed the whole thing from beginning to end, every blockbuster would be X or above.  The same thing here.  Leave Chrono Trigger: The Movie to your imagination.  No possible realization in a two-hour format could possibly do every bit of the game any good.  You'd just ruin the whole thing for everyone.

Which is why a script and a soundtrack is as far as my project is going to go.

i can imagine why you wouldn't want a chrono movie, but i'm going ahead as planned, as im sure there are alot who want one. if anybody doesn't want to watch it because they think it will ruin it, then by all means, do NOT watch this movie when it's finished. "it will ruin it".

i wrote a few scripts before and it never really took 2 years. but im sure all these 3 scripts WILL take a very long time.

Damn you Claado, I knew I was mixing up details. I haven't checked the page in so long I forgot everything. I knew you would come back just to get me, payback for crappy artwork is always high up in Karmic retribution. (I was CTcronoboy if you don't know I switched names)

Motion Capture? I would have been of the impression that that is too costly and high level for any small group to do. Usually only movies and games (ie. Gollum in Lord of the Rings) employ such methods. So is this CG, then, or classical animation? I have never heard of such a thing being done by anything less than those with millions of dollars to spend.

By the way, how old is your group? I saw that the group that is making the other one, ie. the one to whom this thread belongs, is all under the age of 14. That lends me some serious doubts, as I know that my own level of artistic understanding, especially in so far as written dialogue and the like, was quite lacking at that age. My own little 11 year old sister, who is the best writer her age that I have ever seen, could not accomplish something such as a script even when will be 14, simply because she will lack the experience and understanding of words and forms. I, who am a decent writer in my own right now - or so I should like to think - would have grave difficulty in putting together a cohesive script of such a vast story, and not appear either childish/simplistic or overly formal (the latter of which would perhaps be most commonly attributed me.) And this is only so far as script writing is concerned, which is nearest my own understanding (as a would-be writer.)

we just started only about a month ago, and we're finishing up the script and will start animating soon


That particularly concerns me. I cannot see anything of such required length (what is the length?) being completed in less than a year. To actually write the script, I would think, would take months, and twice that for editing, and re-editing, until every sentence and line and part is absolutely perfect and as you wish it. A month is likely not even enough time to step away, leave it be, then come back with a cleared head and re-edit. That is my view of such things as someone with a few years writing experience (on the CT vein in fanfiction, and on other things.)

The rest of what goes into such a thing, such as technical expertise, artistic ability, acting ability, etc. I would have difficulty commenting on.

My apologies for my doubts, but I am not sure that anyone of such a young age have the experience to create something like this. I may be wrong, I speak only of what I know for myself.


i understand why you would doubt. but hehe, by finishing up the script i actually meant that we were finishing up a couple of scenes and will start animating those before going further with the script. ^^; i know it kind of sounds stupid but i REALLY have the urge to start animating this. (I'm the artist by the way). Oh and we have more staff now. A couple of them are over 21 (kind of weird for them to be helping with a movie made my 14 years olds, but they're my friends) and will be helping with the script and animation. There are only 2 artists right now, so we are going to need quite a few more if we expect to finish anytime soon.

Also, about your doubts. I might be only 13 (yes, 13) but i am definitely up to the challenge. I am told I'm a very good artist (especially since im 13) and i have an eye for detail. I am experienced in writing as well. Not the best, but then again, that IS why we have more writers. (f.y.i, on the mjh productions website, where it says staff, thats not the whole staff. just the leading staff).

Anyway, all in all, we don't expect to finish very soon. But seeing as how it is summer vacation, im probably going to be working on this 20/7. I would say 24/7, but i have church on sunday.

I was the guest who asked that question by the way, i just forgot to log in. But our animations is with cencors that you would put on your joints and would copy movement. Then you would upload it to a computer and connect a drawing that you have drew (Or i just got one of the internet) and connect all the joints with your character. And it would make it move with it. there is 1 slight problem though. We have an artist on our team, so you would need one too, and you would have to sketch every little angle out.


well who said i didn't have an artist? I said it's going to be animation didnt I? markus and I are the artists of the team. Also I am aware that i will have to DRAW every frame. Not sketch. If that IS what you mean because im not doing it with censors.

Ol' fashion animation. Well, minus the black and white and all of the celluloids. it's going to be drawn on the computer with my wacom tablet due to the lack of celluloids. We only have 40 which isn't even enough for one scene unless you go cheap and use the same animations over and over again throghout the movie but with different dialogue. And celluloids would cost probably about 300,000 bucks for 3 movies. I'd rather pay it cheap for $115 just by buying a wacom tablet.



Actually celluloids only cost up 500 dollars depending on where you buy them, also i'm excited for this for both teams. But its hard to tell if it will be done...

What are you going to use for music? Because you should ask the CT Symphonic group if you can use their orchestral remixes; they were, after all, meant for a movie adaption.

i wouldn't want to steal it, and i have a potential remixer for the music, but only one so far. you can check out the "music and art" page on the chrono movie site for some updates on it once in a while :D.

The symponic was based around one movie, and I think that this project is going to be a trilogy if I remember correctly?

Great! I have to see some of your remixes first of course. Please send one or two remixes to

mitchelhunt@gmail.com

Thanks for your support. I hope to hear from you soon.

P.S. The remix you send me doesn't have to be about Chrono Trigger, but I would prefer it to be.
