Re: July Competition Brainstorming Thread

Hello,
Thanx to RyanHagen to make the proper "July Competition Brainstorming Thread"
on time, after all he is a volunteer here.
RyanHagen you were only 2 hrs 1 min. late before samplatinum popped the
question "July competition sound". However, who is counting, right ?
Hey,  RyanHagen just teasing you remember the quote you like:
"Frustration is the handmaiden of creativity"  Chuck Jones
EDIT: RyanHagen I take it back about you being late. I was in a hurry
& looked at the LeftBlue post time stamp. My bad ! P)
Now,
perhaps this time we can keep 1 (one) Brainstorming Thread.
So
just a request to samplatinum & LeftBlue to copy their posts
about July Competition then paste them here & perhaps
delete "july competition sound" by samplatinum to keep things
organized here.
It is only my polite suggestion. Samplatinum it is your post you can do
whatever you like with it.
@ samplatinum quote:
"hello im sorry i didnt undrestand the exact meaning of this month competition sound
i will be so thankfull if just describe the meaning to me"
& @ LeftBlue quote:
"Hi! 2 guys talking First guy says that he will block his biological crying
system (meaning he has cried a lot about something) and the second
guy says that there is no need to be so emotional. I hope that helps"
Transcript
Voice 1: I’m considering having my tear ducts melted shut.
Voice 2: It’s not the end of the world to feel …… things.
Voice 1: I guess not. It’s up there. Thing is, I really care about Marcus.
So
LeftBlue is almost right, but not quite (imao).
Voice 1: I’m considering having my tear ducts melted shut.
Voice 1 has cried a lot about (spot on LeftBlue you're right)
I think  crying has to do with Marcus, at least the dialogue suggests that to me.
Basically Voice 1 wants not be able to cry.
However,
Voice 2 tries to cheer Voice 1 up, kind of supports Voice 1
saying it is all right to be emotional & feel "things" even cry.
by saying:
"Voice 2: It’s not the end of the world to feel …… things."
Then Voice 1
agrees with Voice 2 that is not the end of the world to have feelings
& remarks that he (Voice 1) cares about Marcus by saying
"Voice 1: I guess not. It’s up there. Thing is, I really care about Marcus."
In conclusion
my guess would be that Voice 1 did not want to cry about Marcus
or whatever happened to him. Voice 1 does not want to shed tears
anymore "tear ducts melted shut"
Ha ha
it is really hard to explain a simple conversation.
But to be fair it is a kind of jargon not a typical spoken language.
The conversation has a serious tone by judging the voice intonation.
So I guess we can go in this direction by making animation for
this dialogue or twisted it.
I do not watch that show (I've no telly = a thief of time) but I understand
it is a police sitcom located in Brooklyn New York City obviously.
But
that does not matter to me as I treat every dialogue here as
an independent clip (a show)
.
So far I've no any concrete ideas about July Competition, just only
voices intonations. When I get some scenarios I get back to you.
This one is not so easy/obvious. Way to go an 11secondclub.com team.
Have to run it is kind of windy here .....LOL ....
you know what I mean if you are still with me (I'm having fun as always)
cheers

Re: July Competition Brainstorming Thread

All right, so I've thought of it.
Here are a couple suggestions I came up to get you started.
Two characters:
detectives,
policemen,
aliens,
soldiers ect.
talking over third one (Marcus) who lies, as dead as a dodo on:
a pavement,
on a floor/stairway of a flying saucer,
a battlefield ect
0r
it could be two gangsters talking about their mate (Marcus).
That idea is quite interesting as all gangsters can be pictured & animated
as BIG tough guys talking about feelings.
0r
If you want, you can show 2 (two) jailbirds talking to each other
by the barred window in a cell
about another inmate who is hanging from a gallows in a background.
Another scenario:
The hanging inmate (Marcus) could hang himself somewhere
in a cell/jail & the July dialogue took place.

Voice 1: I’m considering having my tear ducts melted shut.

.
Personally I don't like violence, but what came to my mind.
cheers

Re: July Competition Brainstorming Thread

All right,
I know that Voice 1 speaks about Marcus in the present tense,
" I really care about Marcus."
but I noticed that a family or friends talking about a person in the present tense
even s/he had just recently died. Like s/he was still among them here.
It is a force of a habit or just simply not accepting his/her death for a while.
So
if I have to be precise to the letter I came with another idea for
July Competition.
Here it is:
2 doctors (could be military) talking in front of a glass wall
"the dialogue" here
and we see behind that glass Marcus an intensive care unit with all that
equipment & tubes sticking out from him. (No animation of Marcus is required.)
I like this one as 2 male doctors supposed to be tough
but Voice 1 has a nervous breakdown when comes to Marcus obviously.
0r
2 students/co-workers talking about their mate (Marcus),
one of them holds a photo of Marcus all in a plaster cast on/in a hospital bed.
0r
2 family members talking about their Marcus. One holds newspaper
with Marcus picture after some horrific accident.
0r
the paper says "Missing Person Marcus Wazowski" (wink,wink)
0r
2 beetles (NO Beatles) talking about their friend Marcus the beetle laying upside down
& cannot get up in the middle of busy road .........LOL
I was going to do that. However I do not think I will have time for it.
cheers
Ps.
I'm out of ideas (for now ... ha ha ha)
..................................so members the floor is yours for new ideas.
I can't wait to see them....lol

Re: July Competition Brainstorming Thread

Maybe it could be in an ER Two men are sitting in the waiting room and one says :Im considering having my tear ducts melted shut. Obviously hes talking about marcus the other man (could be older/have a beard) says:  It’s not the end of the world to feel …… things. and then blah blah blah blah so forth
