Dear MTV - The short movie - 1st Brainstorming

Yesterday we managed to finish the main plot for our upcoming (very) short film "Dear MTV". Yeah! It was amazing to see what great things can happen when the right people come together. Not even could we find a way to bring the various existing ideas together, we also managed to push it a step further and got some great new inputs! 

We can't (and won't) tell too much about the story yet, only this:

It will take place in a world ruled by an organisation that forbids any form of intellectual content, whether it is books, movies or music. Possession, consumption or provisioning of any of these items on "the black list" will be sentenced with prison or even death. In this world, ruled by brainless entertainment, we follow the journey of a protagonist, who lives trough his days in this so called "happy system" .....until one day, something strange happens...

 

Thats all, folks! For more updates, we suggest to sign up to our Blog or Newsletter, or just give us a like on facebook!

 

The next step will be to develop an animated storyboard and decide how we want to tell the story so it will fit to the music. 

 

see you around

Bandstories #1: Broken goggles backstage

5 min before we are about to enter the stage at Festival des arcs. We are backstage, putting our gear on. It is in that moment,that we realise: one of our goggles is not working, respectively not glowing......FUCK! What now? Go on stage with only 3 of 4 goggles glowing?....not really an option....Our master of electronics grabs out the soldering iron of our toolbox and starts to heat it up. "Well, lets fix it then...." he says. We should already be on stage.

While we are waiting for the iron to heat up, the festival organiser appears backstage: "You guys ready?....."...Ehm, not quite!.....As we cut the cable, remove the plastics and start to re-solder the wire, we can hear the intro on stage, announcing us: "And now, ladies and gentlemen, Revolting Puppets!....Fuck, fuck, Fuuuck! We tell the organiser, that we are having some slight technical problems and that we need another minute or two. We can hear the people shouting and go silent again. Fuck! So much for our big entry....

After an eternity of waiting we finally hear the words: "It works!" Relieved, we put our goggles and helmets on and tell our assistant to play the intro....Nervous as shit we entered stage and had one of the best shows ever!....What did we learn? - You should always have a soldering iron backstage.....and check your electronics soon enough!...
