Darwinism an Adaptation told via Star Wars I, II, & III.
Sometime ago I wrote a script called Darwinism, Thinking it would never get made i adapted the script to fit into the Star Wars movie.
Some years ago I wrote a Sci-fi script for a movie, not being in the industry I felt it probably will never been seen, made, etc...... Then one day was thinking Darth Vader would be awesome as my lead evil character, and then I thought that I would be able to adapt my script to fit “over” Star Wars. From there I just HAD to write a script to make my vision come to life in the only way I felt possible.
Darwinism the original took place on Earth about 300-1000 years in the future, there was alot of "New Tech" which made human diverge into 3 main groups "cyborg" people that have been enhanced after birth, Enhancers that have been genetically enhanced before birth and norms. It’s about evolution, because of the evil lead and his secret society interferences with DNA and evolution, by creating various different kinds of humans in search of the perfect human and this has some unpredictable changes that challenge his authority.
So what I did is take the voice out from Star Wars and added subtitles to my rewritten script that takes place in our Galaxy, mind you have I never done anything like this before and I can say now I’m pretty much an expert at windows movie maker and many other free editing programs not mention all the different programs needed to only erase voice, embed subtitles (that I had to match the timing down to tenth of a second). I matched syllable to syllable which limited me to what words I could use, also I made the word counts match perfectly which was long and tedious.
So what do I need funding for if I have 1:30 movie subtitled over Star Wars? I want to voice over the story, no one wants to watch subtitles, but voice over would make the movie way watchable.....Its Star Wars but different. Even I couldn't believe how good the story melds right into Star Wars once I watched the whole thing IT DOES NOT FOLLOW STAR WARS plot or time line after bout 45mins as I moved things around and added things from part 2 and 3. , there is much added dialog I would say 1/3 more. There are some twists and turns, even though you seen the movie a hundred times, the characters come into themselves and Vader(Lord Savior) is better as the Top Evil lead in command, in my humble opinion (not that emperor what's his name).
Lord Savior (Darth Vader) imprisoned, exiled, and shot into the void of deep space, the leader of the most powerful secret society mankind ever known, somehow in the nothingness of space he has acquired a Spaceship like mankind has never witnessed, raised an army out of the void of deep space, and there are Rumors he has gained great powers and knowledge after encountering Something Beyond all know Scientific Reality and he’s headed towards earth! What does Lord Savior have planned for the Human Race?
Actually cut out about 15-25 min of film to get down to 1:30 before I knew YouTube only lets you upload 15mins, DUH! Which was really good plot info and back story about Lord Savior and the exile, from ben to Hym (Luke).
So if we go over funding, first funds will go towards DVD copies for all backers from reward 2 and higher, if there is not enough for that, then money will go to voice over for part 2 and all backers from reward 2 and higher will get link to part 2 once completed.
Risks and challenges
After funding getting good voice actors in the Chicago area could be a little bit of a challenge. Seems to be only one good company for voice over actors in Chicago. The voice over could be done all separate. From people over the Internet, which could be reflected in the quality. So defiantly going to try and get at least the main characters in a studio to read together.
As I don't know any audio mixer I'll be taking a risk on hiring one with so many in the Chicago area it can be a daunting task. This could be tricky and take up more time than planned as voice and timing has to be precise for this project sound and film match up.
Being in last stage of development sometimes seems it's an easy road to the finish, but all types of challenges could arise in this case finding the right actors and actresses, booking studio time to meet deadline, and the possibility of having to direct voice actors through skype, email, or phone.
