Use Of Cell Phones In Wars...

04 February 2008 - 11:01 PM

Think about it, many cell phones are now lining up with GPS navigation in them, along with instant messaging programs, (universal ones such as Agile Mobile) and the increasingly popular picture-mail features that could be of use for silently coordinating attacks or something.

The GPS, well, guess it could be handy if the war is taking place throughout several streets in the hands of someone with no sense of direction. Text messaging is obviously quiet and a pretty good way to communicate to teammates, and combine that with picture mail--take a picture of the postitions of opponents guarding the flag if you're playing capture the flag, and send it to teammates (a picture is worth a thousand words, right?)

With all these nerf guns out there with the "rails" on top, it actually could be pretty easy to mount cell phones onto the guns. Of course, you obviously need a large "arena" to make it even worth the trouble, I actually sort of did this, but it was at night, and unfortunately...with super soakers (not an event hosted by me, otherwise it would have been nerf, soakers have no freaking range), it was roughly 35 vs. 35, (huge youth group event, and tons of guests) capture the flag and about 1/3 square mile, huge, buildings in between (college campus), trees, gazebos, lines of bushes, etc. It was probably the only good super soaker fight I've had, would have been an amazing nerf war (but nobody listens to genius). But any ways, me and several teammates broke off and got a lot of use out of our cell phones (wrapped in plastic for water protection), and we won 3 out of 3, long wars, over an hour each. As said before though, cell phones are only useful in large areas for wars (guess my new name is Captain Obvious).

Agents Of Absurdity

03 February 2008 - 01:16 AM

Setting: Modern
Place: A few towns in NYS, and Canada
Characters (basic idea): All characters throughout this project are in one way or another, insane. One is a kleptomaniac, another is severely addicted to food, another is a ditsy blonde with split-personality and rage, etc.
A group of agents must work together to foil an Evil Canadian plan to take control of the United States. The Evil Canadians, lead by the trigger-happy Arnold (a.k.a. Shotgun-Arnie) have invented, mass produced, and sold thousands of special machines throughout the United States via the black market, as a means to easily ship them into the country, unnoticed, and spread them all out. These mysterious machines will give the Canadians a major advantage, should they succeed in tracking them down and taking full control of them all (each machine bears a hidden homing beacon). However, a mysterious Evil Canadian spy, working undercover in the United States, has identified a group of specially trained agents that could become a serious threat if they should be made aware of the sinister plot. The Canadian’s best method of lowering the threat is to turn these agents all on each other, which is overall, not very difficult as many of these agents just simply can’t stand each other!

Below is the link to the first scene filmed:
Inconceivable Conspiracies: Scene 3

An entire screenplay reaching a whopping 80 pages in length (not in proper Hollywood-style format, but worth approximately over 120 pages of a Hollywood-style screenplay, as the style used has far less space per page) has been completed and been granted copyright protection. Over 70 people have joined our project, and more join almost every week now. The next shoot is likely to be later this month.

Any questions, comments, advice? Please speak up. Thank you for taking the time to read this, should be my only post anywhere near this long.
