    No matter.

    We'll have to put that in another one.

    I have sent you another outline. This one has the ending drafted in.

    ANOUNCMENT: As the out line moves forward and everything else moves backwards I would like it, very much, if you could post more ideas on the middle of the film.

    How they solve the mystery?

    How they make mistakes, and I'd also like to know what you guys think will be the out come of the film.

    Is it belive in a dream? Like Muppet Movie?

    Is it keep trying? Like MTM?

    Is it badies don't win, like GMC????

    Also I'd like to know who you think should be the hero.

    The message should be a combo of baddies don't win and keep trying. We can't let the bad guys win but the whole moving is about trying to free Kermit.

    Now as for the middle of the movie I was thinking that under cover muppets is the best way to go for part of it. A good mix of old and new. The other parts should be Gonzo breaking out of jail. Maybe he makes a catapult out of his bed and he tries to launch himself through the wall, but instead slams into it and bends his nose. Scenes such as that would bring out Gonzo's wackier side which is a must.

    Good ideas.

    Beau, we need to add in something towards the beginning that Kermit and Fozzie have wanted a long time, but then when they're in jail, they find out because of that, they will never get it. That's what the song I wrote is sort of about.

    I'll send the outline on once I've put a couple of other bits in it.

    Everyone, I need you to list your favorite characters here so we can include them in teh script. For some reason, I don't think we've done a very good job in including something for everyone.
  8. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    You know, you are soooo right Scooter.

    I havn't put Bonston and Beaker, Bean Bunny, Cliffard, it is soo hard trying to do this so that everyone is happy. I have been trying to work Beau in too much I think. He can have some better bits in Pigs in Space the Movie.

    While you're thinking of that, what do you think of an extension to this song. It's found in the Paul Simon episode of the Muppet Show.

    "For yoooou!
    I'd wash my hair in stinky glue,
    I'd fry my legs and eat them too,
    I'd put a spider in my shooooooe!
    For you!"

    Would that be wrong?

    List your characters!

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Yes that was in my mind. I read it in somones sig. Didn't know Gonzo sang it.

    How about the Sandwiches made from sand one?

    well they could want some opportunity or job in a show...that's about all i can think of....what are the muppets doing when kermit is in jail...do we see living conditions, and such. that can include lots of muppets fast....like MFS did....

    rowlf needs to be one of the top 5 characters in the movie, also try to have zoot say some stuff...he had some funny lines in gmc and also have lips say something too like a sentence or two

  13. pezbalubah

    pezbalubah Well-Known Member

    My outline included small parts for Bean, Bunsen, Beaker, and Clifford and even a line for Zoot. If you wish to incorporate those in somehow...
  14. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    Lips may or may not say anything, but he's included as a member of the Electric Mayhem.

    Rowlf, I want him to be in the top ten at least. He's my second favorite character. (well, tied with Kermit at second)

    Pez, I'm gonna have to re-read your outline. I actually don't remember a lot of it. Sounds good. Haven't heard from ya' in a while.

    Beau, I like the idea behind your song, but I don't think it could work. My song was based (loosly) on hus "And now the band is playing very slow. And once again I'll get my coat and go, a lonly wall flower waiting by the wall without the will-power to face the music at all. Please, won't somebody dance with me. Start up a romance with me. etc. etc." Only funnier. It was in the Julie Andrews episode.

    Er, I don't really like Bean Bunny, but I do want him in the movie. If you noticed, Beau, I also added something in for Statler and Waldorf. I was thinking we could cut to thay setting once in a while.
  15. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Yes, sounds good, Scoot.

    I was going through the out line last night thinking it was getting a bit long them I thought how much metter it'll be if it is a ten hour long screen-play cut down to two hours including only the best bits, soooo keep the ideas flowing.
  16. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    Oh, thinking of which, I wrote shorter, better songs so we can have more. One of which is much more emotional because it's shorter.

    Just so you know, a screenplay usually runs about... 100 some-odd pages. Sometimes 175 or so. You'll have to look it up.
  17. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    About a minuet a page I've heard
  18. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    Yes. That's right.
  19. ryhoyarbie

    ryhoyarbie Well-Known Member

    yes, use rowlf, use zppt and lips and the rest of the electric mayhem....use your creative writing juices and put them in the movie where they are needed!!!

  20. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    We try not to let our creative writing juices get all over the page, though we pore over the script sometimes.
