What are you working on?
« on: August 22, 2008, 11:21:29 AM »
Ok, there are a few threads going on that have come up with the similar conclusion that a thread like this would be useful. As well as tracking what movies are being done at a certain time, this thread can also be used to find partners for collaborations, or even seeking help if you get hit with writers block, or getting stuck on difficult passages, etc.

Personally, once I throw my hat in the ring, I know I'd find a running thread useful to keep tabs on what spews from my mouth in terms of ideas :P

So there you go...what are you guys working on?
Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

I'm still in the selection phase of my debut iRiff.  I'm leaning towards either "Billy Jack" or "High School Musical" and will be watching both this weekend.  I might start work on both titles and see which one starts to come along better.

I've already got one riff in mind for each movie.  Yay!  :highfive:

Things I am worried about:  Lots of songs in HSM.  It might be too hard to riff over the songs.  Do I keep the riffs family friendly to match the rating of the film?  Billy Jack has the one difficult scene that would be hard to "riff" over.  I think I have an idea as to what to do for that.  The rest of that movie shouldn't present any problems.

My two back-up choices are "My Super Ex Girlfriend" and "Airport 1975".

So that is where I am at so far.

I certainly hope we get a lot of iRiffs from the folks here.  This could be a lot of fun!

Something a person could easily get a copy of. Something with terrible writing and lots of unnecessary slowness ("tension").

As much as I would love to do "Super Fuzz," even the copy available on Amazon is apparently a modded European version with weird voice-overs.
"When You Grow Up" is totally free to watch, and totally cheap to download.

I have a riff for "Facing the Giants" that I wrote in April with a friend of mine. It's only a matter of recording it, which we will no doubt be more inclined to do now with the introduction of iRiffs.

We had planned to follow FTG up with "Garden State".

You know what might be a good idea? Old Doctor Who stories, like say, The Curse of Fenric.

I'll bet a lot of fans of Rifftrax are also Doctor Who fans.

I'm also tempted to try something that is technically a documentary, like "Ghost Hunters".

Been working on.. Yes.. That Movie.. for a while and my script is complete with 43 1/2 pages, but others are welcome to submit their input as well since we probably won't get this completed till 2009 hopefully in time for its 25th Anniversary release ( December 3, 2009) :o

I've got an old misting of a Star Trek episode that I did once. I'm going to edit it a tad (It was text only, so it won't time right with a broadcast) and record it as a test run to work out issues with the recording process, programs & equipment. After that, I'll launch into something.

Currently:

JAWS: THE REVENGE

Since it's super-early stages (got a first-viewing rough draft so far), and I don't currently have the proper audio hardware OR a "Riffer #2" picked yet, this thing is still touch-and-go as far as "certainty of completion".  But I'm trying my darndest to make it happen.

And if anyone wants to supply jokes for it, I'm definitely willing to use them!  Just keep in mind that 1) I'm keeping this as PG-rated as possible, and 2) that there's always the small possibility that I may need to hand these reins over to somebody else, or cancel altogether.  Don't want you writing stuff thinking it's definitely gonna happen, 'cuz it's still in development. :P

But anyway, there you go. ;D

I'm planning to riff the complete Taster's Choice saga followed by that episode of "Growing Pains" where Mike and Boner go to the prom. Then I'm finally going to tackle "A Man For All Seasons." You're going down, Scofield.

In all truth, I'm just working on some new shorts (writing "Junior Prom" at the moment) and looking for a new PD  sci-fi feature to riff.

Gold Blend right?

Oh I'd so do that if I can work out how to find the vids and record the thing.

Right now, me and a few other writers are working on our riff scripts for Halloween 2.  We're calling ourselves The Movie Asylum.   As far as the intros go we will have an ongoing storyline. 

I'm going to keep a few details like who the other main writers/performers are, the exact plot, etc, a secret for now.  I want to have some new info for you guys as our first riff comes nearer to completion.  Of course, we're hoping to have this riff down before Halloween.

Also, writer contributions are welcome.  If you'd like to contribute you can e-mail your riffs to me in Excel or OpenOffice spreadsheet format at MovieAsylum@gmail.com.
Imrahil: Don't care about Riding with Death.

Bob: Turkey.

Action Batch:  Woah, let's all mellow out and rap about this.

I have a lot of projects started.

Hollow Man- I'm planning on re-recording  for quality.
Timeline- Pretty much finished.  Just need to rework the audio and redo the synch lines.
The Fugitive- Script is nearly ready to be recorded.
Constantine-  Deadline for script submissions is Sunday.
Maximum Overdrive - Still a work in progress.
Couple of other titles that will likely get done before some of these that I want to leave a surprise.
