A 5 episode mini series based on the popular video game.
Above image is from GEEKGO: DOOM Engines Review
Much like the LEGO Silent Hill mini series I had finished a year ago, I want to bring another beloved video game into a movie like world. Yes it's LEGO but I dont have funds or the rights for a big budget Hollywood movie. So a smaller scale is perfect for me.
I was disappointed with the Doom movie, which is why I want to use LEGO to tell a better story. I want to show people how I feel a video game should be adapted.
I did this with Silent Hill and Resident Evil as I was disappointed with both of those movies as well.
So I hope you can help me bring this vision to you, a video game adaptation that is made by a fan, for the fans. Something that is true to the video game's theme and style.
Script is done!
Voice acting is DONE! Main Character building is DONE!Set building has begun!
The money I receive will go towards creating the monster army and demons and getting the rest of the pieces I need to create the and the space ships.
The sets will be created in the same style as LEGO Silent Hill, with lego built on top of printed backgrounds.
The human characters all have the LEGO look but the monsters will be made with the retro Doom look and feel. This is to symbolize the monsters are from a different dimension. They should look different from the LEGO characters and look alienated.
Episode 01 script can be seen here:
Thank you everyone for looking! :)
TO KEEP THINGS SHORT: MONEY WILL BE USED FOR:
1: Creating the Monsters.
2: Expanding the MARS UAC Base Sets.
3: Extra RAM for the computer to speed the process up.
4: USB extensions and USB L.E.D. lights to light up the sets and filming.
5: Any left overs will be used to build small rigs for the camera. (Tripods and tracks for panning shots.)
And here is the last animated short I just made to see how my skills have progressed.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Since I have been working alone to complete this project. There are plenty challenges in terms of special effects. Nothing I cannot conquer but might slow down the process.
Of course if i become sick, there will be slow down as well as no one else is helping me to finish this.
I guess there is also the challenge of creating the space ships in this mini series as I am creatively stuck with a ship design, I looked at the doom 3 transports and trying to convert it. Any help here would be nice too. Just a digital version in the LEGO design software would be great.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
