| do you know how easy it is for me to think up ideas, write scripts? I am naturally gifted. I got this from my grandfather who was an animator, he did work on Scooby Doo and Blink Bill. |
I'm not trying to offend you, but I very honestly could not care less. I'm trying to give you criticism for your ideas
, not you personally. You can tell me you're a natural born artist until you're blue in the face, but it's not going to change my feelings on your prompt.
| Your presumption is honest but is wrong. The only regconifition I'd like to get from Rockstar is something they would be fan of but that's secondary. |
I apologize, but every project I have seen that has started with the goal of recognition has inevitably failed. Naturally, any future projects I see that mention recognition as a goal are going to make me very skeptical.
| You don't know anything about the storylines I have planned so you cannot honestly say it lacks substance simply for the fact you know nothing about it. |
And that's why I asked you about it. I asked how you plan to keep my attention, how many characters you have planned, how you plan to flesh out each character, how you plan to give them depth, and you gave me no answer. As Eminence said, my "lack of substance" comment was indeed related to the trailer - note that I said "related," however, not directly targeted at it. Based on what you have described and what I have seen from your trailer, I can only assume that your series will be in a similar style to the trailer itself. As I said, that kind of style is fine for a trailer, but for a full-length series I do not think it would have very much substance. There's too much going on, it's far too busy, and because of this many of your characters will be very shallow. Again, this is running on the assumption that your series is planned to be similar to your trailer.
| I want to draw you in with the atmosphere and I feel like the trailer and newspaper article shows that. |
It's fine if you use atmosphere to draw
me in, but you need other components to keep
me drawn in. Otherwise, you will have many people who watch one episode, get bored, and never return to the series. And I don't want that any more than you do.
| Until you know more of the story, you cannot really judge it until you see what we have planned. |
Then tell me more of the story. If you did not post this topic expecting constructive criticism, then you were being very naive.
