Sorry for the delay, it's been a busy week. Here's the status of the WithoutABox project submission.
1. RolesRoles that translated well:
Author of Adapted Material
Editing -> Editor
Screenplay -> WriterRoles that I think are probably okay:
Lighting -> Cinematographer/DP
Effects -> Special Effects
Network and Render Farm Support -> Technical AdvisorRoles I haven't entered yet:
Render Wranglers - should these be "Technical Advisor" as well?
Modeling, Texturing, Rigging, Animation, Layout - would these all go to Animator?Missing Role:
Director - We have noone listed as Director, and I'm guessing this is important to have a name attached to this role. I'm guessing the best person to list would be Holmes, or should there be multiple?
2. People without existing IMDB pages.
Presumably, once it gets submitted to IMDB (an option in WithoutABox), they will be created based on the data I have entered.
Steve392 (Still don't have his real name.)
3. They ask for synopses of varying lengths. I gladly welcome some copy for each of these (including something to replace my original LogLine).
LogLine - 125 words. Here's what I wrote off-the-cuff:
Trot and Cap'n Bill run into difficulties traveling to Jinxland. They eventually run into Scarecrow, who guides them along the way. The three of them run into Pom, a gardener who is in love with the Princess of Jinxland. Together they try to foil a plot by King Krewl to make Princess Gloria marry Googly Goo, while Tin Woodman rushes to catch up with Scarecrow and save them all from the witch.
Medium - 250 words
Long - 1000 words
