QuipTracks: The Happening - NOW AVAILABLE
« on: July 03, 2008, 08:34:34 PM »


Synopsis:

M. Night Shyamalan drives the final nail in the coffin of his reputation for surprise endings by telling a tale with all the twists and turns of a pretzel... not the twisty kind, but the straight kind that doesn't have twists.

The trees and plants of the Northeast US, no doubt still angry over Al Gore's defeat in 2000, have begun intermittently emitting a gas that causes humans to want to kill themselves. (Hey, can you blame them? I mean, even humans have been known to do that from time to time, right?) Anyway, it's up to She (of She and Him) and Marky Mark (minus Hector the booty inspector) to protect a child-sized dress mannequin and get it to the place where the event is not happening.

Can these two adults, who are not only in touch with their inner children but have them writing all their dialog, stay a step ahead of flatulent shrubbery and skydiving construction workers all the while pulling their relationship through the toughest crisis it has ever faced? Or, more importantly, can you make it through the movie without trying to drown yourself in your soda or gouge out your eyes with Twizzlers?

Fear not. QuipTracks is here to help you through this difficult, uh, phenomenon? Occurrence? Seems like there is some other word I'm looking for here. Oh well.

If this means you're making a riff for something still in theaters, so that you can go into the theater and listen to it with an MP3 player, which I've been wanting someone to try forever, then you sir have balls.

IF that's what you're doing.

The evidence points to Invader Quirk being dead.

I mean, that's the only result from seeing that movie that many times.

Speaking of which, I've actually been deceased for almost 6 months.

No, I think they're going to do a riff for the 1941 French production of "L'opta se turnia" (Stubs on a table) starring Jean Francois P'Aldra. Powerful stuff.

That all depends on how long it stays in theaters. On the one hand, I'm constantly pissed that saps are still going to see it because we have to be secretive and quiet with our riffing. On the other I want it to stay in theaters forever.

I'm pretty depressed right now regarding this... What we've been doing is we went into the theater with voice recorders and riffed it and ended up with the audio from the movie too, which was great because we could use Sub Station Alpha's "Time to WAV" function and fill in lines riffing on the dialog and parts with sound cues. Of course there are some parts that don't have sound cues, however, so we decided to go in again and record a narrated play-by-play of what was Happening(R) on screen. This would allow us to riff the entire movie even before the DVD comes out.

So we went through the entire movie, narrating it. Then when we get home we realize that we didn't save the file. Our hope was to make a rough draft from the script alone that we could listen to in the theater to see if it was accurate. That just became less likely.


U_U...sigh

According to SmartCine.com (How the hell am I supposed to pronounce that?), The Happening will be released on DVD on Oct 7.  Our script is 2/3 through the movie right now. I can't say exactly how long we'll need after the DVD release to record it, but it's fair to say we should have a Happening quiptrack in early October.

Sitting through that once must have been torture, let alone mutliple times.

Weird tone there, I take it you haven't seen it?
