Filmplay - Movies That Put You In Control (Canceled)
An app that lets you play the character of a movie, find items, and make choices for the main character to decide how the movie ends.
You enter the Filmplay app from your cell phone or PC and browse through the store for available movies or head over to your virtual shelf, which holds all your purchased movies. Each movie will have a demo for you to play before you make your purchase. You click play on the movie and begin your adventure through the movie of your choice. To win, you must make it through movie within a certain amount of lives. If you lose a life and still have extras, you restart from the beginning of that chapter. Run out of lives and its game over. The beauty of this 'game over' is you might stumble upon something or someone you missed on your previous play through that will help you beat the game.
Filmplay will be shot using two different camera styles. The first is the traditional cinematic style. This style is multiple camera angles and a 3rd person perspective. The second style is first person shooter or FPS for short. This camera angle puts you in the front seat of the entire film. You play the entire movie through the eyes of one of the characters. Using touch controls and buttons, Filmplay lets you control everything that happens in the movie. You choose where your character goes and what they say. Use weapons to defend yourself and items to solve problems and help other characters. Not all movies will require you to use an axe. In the romance category, you might give a rose a to a woman when you pick her up for your date or put rubber gloves on at a gruesome crime scene.
Example of gameplay:
We aren't holding back and staying in one particular genre. We have big plans for all types of movie lovers and gamers. There are options such as ghosts and exploring haunted places, or running through a horde of hungry zombies with a fully loaded shotgun. If you like stealth, then sneaking into a enemy compound and taking out the captain should be a good test. Ever wonder what it would be like to be a vampire or werewolf? Ripping people apart or building an army of wolves. What if there was a killer on the loose and the next target was your family? Could you catch him in time? Blood and guts not your thing? More of the romantic type? Think you could walk into a bar and get the hottest girl in there to give you her phone number? What about speed dating? Can you wow the woman of your dreams with all the way to marriage, or will you choke and lose your chance on your one true love.
GreenSpot Road is the first movie you will be able to play. It's about your two best friends Jake and Chase tricking you into going down GreenSpot Road. While driving down GreenSpot Road, things start to spin out of control and out of your hands. You wonder why there aren't any other cars on the road or what's the real reason Jake and Chase have dragged you out here. What secrets does this road hold? You come across a lake that isn't on any map and discover camp sites that have been abandoned and left to mother nature. Would you investigate or get the heck out of there? The choice is up to you!
With your help we can finish the first Filmplay movie GreenSpot Road. We have shot some great scenes already for GS Road with a three man team, but need to increase our production crew to help finish shooting the film. After that, we need to hire a few game programmers into the mix. Once that is complete, the next movie for Filmplay will begin production. We also want to bring this onto the next gen video game consoles so we can offer more diversity for our players.
Risks and challenges
Filmplay is based on two industries, the film and video game industry. So each has its own risk and challenges.
The film risk is making sure production is planned out to each detail. Not only are we shooting a film, we are shooting a game with multiple options for the same scene. Each option or choice in the game has to be shot with enough time for the player to make their choice or react fast enough to something happening.
The game risk is programming a film to be a video game. We can't just take our animated hero and make him do what we want. We're working with real people. We run the risk of needing something else to happen in the film and we might have already wrapped on filming.
If we hit our goal, our team will grow and everything can be planned perfectly so nothing like this will happen. I am confident that with the right team, that includes our backers, we can make Filmplay a reality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
