Default Lets make a movie

Hey guys, just to piggy back on the email Katie sent out we should think about making a movie! We can feel free to let this thread become a sounding board for ideas that people have for videos and resources that might be available to make them happen!

David,

Did you want to join the DSI team for the 48-Hour Film Project? It's the weekend of June 11th-13th.

DSI should rock DSI Comedy Online, but network network network. Working with a group like that (and doing the 48hr project) helps spread the word of How AWESOME our community is.

Btw, Earlier last year we started a second YouTube channel just for DSI Comedy, so let's fill it up.

Default Idea

My brother Rajeev had an amazing idea for a very short video. Here's the sketch.

Characters:

Jimmy
The Sun

(Scene opens on sun happily walking down the street perhaps whistling or singing a little ditty This could be accomplished by a flash animation if anyone has the time or knowhow or just a person in a large sun costume Shot changes to Jimmy looking sad sitting on a curb. Shot returns to the sun who looks concerned)

Sun: Hey there jimmy!

Jimmy: Ah, hey.

Sun: Well how are you doing on this beautiful day Jimmy?

Jimmy: you know, um, I'm honestly not so good.

Sun: Well what's wrong Jimmy?

Jimmy: Well, actually its my mom. She's got skin cancer.

(Shot changes to the sun looking awkward and culpable/ change back to jimmy glaring with hate/ change back to sun/ back to jimmy/ back to sun then either the sun starts running away or the final shot of its face is the black out.)

Anyone down to shoot this? anyone have the expertise to make it happen?

also I'd be down to participate in the 48 hour film project as well. When does it start/end exactly because my mother's restaurant is opening on the 15th of june so I will be pretty busy up to that point helping to get that off the ground.

It's Friday the 11th through Sunday the 13th- so right during the time you'll be at your busiest. Filming will be taking place Saturday the 12th if you want to come out for just that part.

And if you can give me a couple of weeks until the 48 Hour is over, I can help you produce your project!

It actually sounds very interesting, and I can start talking to them, but I want to be moved into Carrboro before I start taking an active part in it. My gas budget is currently funding a small community somewhere in the Middle East. I'll probably be interviewing w/a software company in Raleigh in the next couple of weeks. I got a call from the staffing agency about it yesterday.
