PostSubject: Felarya - The Movie   Thu Feb 21, 2008 5:00 pm

After reading Jette's brilliant idea about a Felarya game, it got me thinking about a Felarya film. This is totally hypothetical since I have neither the budget or tools to do anything like that. But I was wondering if it was to made, what way would you like to see it go?

At the top of the scale, a live action full Hollywood blockbuster (Hey I can dream cant I?)
Deciding on a storyline and plot, I would guess it would have to be from a human's point of view, perhaps stumbling into Felarya by a freak portal, maybe even a military team finding it like through a stargate. Thats generally how these big films work right?
But whatever the story, I was wondering about who would you have play the various charactures.

Starting with the main role that is obviously Crisis, your gonna need someone with the right look and 'assets' to fill the role. For that I was thinking of a British model called Keeley Hazell (If your not from UK you'll probably have to google her) Ive got this poster on my wall thats her from waist up and everytime I look at it I just think, she looks a lot like Crisis.

If you've got Crisis, then you definatly need an Anna. For that what do you reckon to either Milla Jovovich (Different accent, goes well with purple hair) Or maybe Brittany Murphy, Reese Witherspoon. Perhaps you can think of better ones, but its not just down to who you like, they have to fit the role.
Theres a ton of other spots that could be filled, Who do you think would work best in a Felaryan film?
Which actors and actresses jump to mind for all the natives in Felarya and how would it (If possible) go according to storyline?

Perhaps a live action film is a bit much to ask, so how about an animated version? Ive heard about some, and seen a few bits of some quite well made snippets from various artists along a similar subject. Do you reckon sticking more closely to the style of Karbo's art would work better for it?

Its something I would love to see one day Laughing

1) Unless it was a Porno, Vore would have to be uninvolved in the story. Possible, though not to bode well with some fans.

2) Problem with putting humans in there would be that either a love interest would have to be put in, or Humans would triumph against the odds. Movies work that way, which is why Felarya, certain high fantasies, and many dystopian realms are likely to never be made into a movie.

3) No nudity. Unless it was rated NC-17, odds are there'd be no scenes of any Felaryan going native. This would not match with the Felaryan theme.

4) To preserve the unique nature of Felarya, most (If not all) actors would need to be relatively unknown in general. Cloverfield was a success not only because of how it was done, but that no major actors were visible on the screen. It was all average mooks in your eyes, no "Neo" or "Boromir" or "Ripley".

A Felaryan movie could work, though I find it unlikely.

I'm gonna agree with Malahite on this one.

The mystery of Felarya is kinda taken away if you recognize popular faces, instead of seeing fresh new ones (like all of Karbo's chars).

Maybe it could be a movie in japan, since standards there are pretty low (nudity on TV is just fine there, like American swearing and bloody gore, if I remember correctly)

Knowing Hollywood, they would also ruin it by mixing an unnecessary genre in it, like a buddy comedy movie. Believe me, I do NOT want to see Eddie Murphy or Robin Williams as king of the fairies.

I'm sorry, but this mental image just made me laugh and hope that someone with wit and good drawing skills makes a little comic about this exact thing. Anyone who saw the "Wizard of Oz, staring Robin Williams!" comedy sketch will likely see where I'm coming from.

And you bring up a nice point Pendragon: Sliced off head without brain: Fine. Titty: Bad!

'Wizard of Oz, Starring Robin Williams, Written by Robin Williams, and directed by... Quentin Tarantino'
Frank Caliendo right? Funny stuff.

Kinda which was I suggested Keeley as main role, shes a page 3 girl, does this kind of work anyway. Dont know if any of you know of FHM, but they did a photoshoot a while back with a bunch of there models as Giantesses. There was a youtube of one of them explaining how she just ate a bunch of little people. But yeah I agree with you, although 'TAG' maybe would have made it if it wasn't for the whole scam thing perhaps and the lawer suites?

Yeah thats true, I was just thinking about things like Aliens vs Predator, the original storylines of that had no humans to start with, they were added later to make it commercial. Which is what any Felaryan film would have to do also I guess.

Unknown actors, yeah that could work. I was kinda daydreaming though, just imagining if there ever was a big hollywood style film. I know that wont happen, but it would probably have to have a 'Ripley' as you put it. Although any idea of someone like Crisis ending up toast is not something I would want to see.
So maybe the animated version would be better since its lower key and more cult status style.

Internet Anime? I say, yes.

Hollywood movie? It would get so butchered it will be worse than Eragon the movie. Sorry, spent too much time on another forum with a tendency to bash Eragon.

If UROTSUKIDOJI can get made, FELARYA: The Movie is possible. If fact, it's my private ambition and I feel the cartoons Ricky Worley and I are making might make it possible in the next few years.

Not that I WANT FtM to be anything like UROT, but since people lump every anime from Nausicaa to Akira in with UROT, it's inevitable.

But for the love of god, this wouldn't work live action. Hopefully it could be rendered by 3-D CGI, would personally prefer 2-D. If Crisis were rendered as a real being a la TRANSFORMERS, she would be almost as scary as the Santa Claus in POLAR EXPRESS. Besides, no way it'd get the budget to rise above Sci-Fi Channel level rendering, so she would be laughable as well.

I mean, doesn't putting a cute woman's torso on a snake's body sound like a Something Awful Photoshop Phriday challenge? Well, probably not, since they hate anything even remotely related to furries, but it's in the spirit.

Call me a douchebag, but I DON'T want this to become a movie. Certain things just work in one medium, while others just do not.

This is just my take, but Felarya isn't something that I want to see commercialized-and I'm a hardcore capitalist! I want it to stay as a "well kept secret"-something that is quickly disappearing, so I just want it to stay out of the mainstream.

I'll be blunt; for me, this fandom is like a secret club. The best metaphor is that it is a "second life"-by day, I'm an engineering student. In secret, however, I am a participant in something truly special. If everyone and their grandma knows about it, it kind of loses its appeal for me-to be frank, I would delete all links, sever all ties, and deny that I ever was part of it.

Call me old-fashioned, but I just don't want this to happen-even though making a franchise out of everything isn't just normal, it's expected nowadays.

Wow. Siafu makes a good point. This is kind of a second life that is best kept out of greedy commercial hands.

I say if we make a movie, it be a fanmade movie, like Sonic: Nazo Unleashed (in the beautiful, home-made artistic style).

Bear in mind, since I am a capitalist, I don't mind greed-to me, greed is good. However, greed must be applied intelligently-it isn't greed, so much as it is greed compounded with stupidity that causes problems.

I don't mind it becoming a fanmade movie, so long as it is a 'set piece'. I think just focusing on the tense moments of the pursuit would be very effective, especially since we wouldn't

Aside for the capitalist part, Quoted For Truth! I'm no communist, I prefer a in between the two. Anyway, this is a second life, thanks to this, I made fiction using my own character. Before this, I was too shy to do anything, but not here. If it must be a movie, make it animated and on the Internet.

Given that the technology exists where it's relatively simple to assemble a good quality animated movie on an amateur level, the Felarya universe could be expanded into film, distributed online for people who seek out material like this. The only difficulty is, naturally, getting enough animators that a project won't take years to put out: though again, computers do cut out a chunk of the time-consuming nature of animation. Why ink cells when you can just set everything up digitally and make slight modifications frame by frame?

That's a lot to contend with though: getting multiple people to work together in a similar style, backgrounds, checking continuity. It could be done, and it'd be fun to see, but it would take a lot of work.

Karbo, out of curiosity, how well-known do you see this all becoming? Actually, a better question, for both him and anyone else might be, how well known would you like this to become, and how much do you want to be associated with it?

It's been a while since I posted here eh? Anyways, I think it'd be cool to see a Felarya movie, but strange at the same time. Never in my life have I watched a live action movie and randomly said "Kawai :3" when Hermoinie appears (Using her as some exampke) With anime and manga styled works though, it's the complete opposite. All in all, it's be nice to see it as an animation first. Hell, I'd rather just see a one shot 30 minute episode with clean art and animation than a flash vid (No offense Serve)

And a message to Karbs (If he reads this): While it'd be cool if you one day made a manga, you might have to tone down on the "maturity" of it. The giantess concept is very cloasted in the outside world (Out our front doors) and I think it'd be better if it was introduced more cautiously rather than people considering us all "disturbing". But that's just me. I just want to make sure you do good with your world!

Well for Felarya, if it had happened a few years earlier I would definitely have put all my power and time behind it right now to really make something out of it. Now I have a job that I love and is taking me lot of time, so I can only get to Felarya during my free time.
But the will is definitely still here Smile
I feel it has become quite a rich universe and definitely very original ( XD ) and I am convinced it can be turned into something more concrete.
Which from would it take ? I don't know.. maybe a web comic, a manga, a game, an anime.. who know ^^

As for making money out of it, well this is a touchy question.
On one hand I feel focusing on the commercial side is a quick and sure way to loose the" soul" of something .
On another hand, additional income sure wouldn't hurt as I am not exactly a wealthy person ^^;
So the ideal would be the middle, where I can retain all the fun I have into doing things on Felarya, but in the same time helping me to earn my living.

As for your question Mukat, well I am really delighted when I see people take time to make things out of my universe, this is one of the thing that get me going ^_^ the thing is like I said I am very busy in real life. So basically I could help on a project only if I feel it's really serious and there is a will behind it Smile

As I've always believed, if you created something, it's yours-no one else's. Whether make a commercial venture or not is your decision-so long as it is truly your decision. Don't let anyone here or elsewhere tell you what to do with your work.

Of course, you probably know this already-so I won't harp on it further. Just don't sign away creative control-for better or worse, George Lucas held on to that. Has been or not, you have to admire that kind of integrity-even the merchandising rights remain his. Same with Bill Watterson, creator of the American comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes".

Personally, I have no intention of actually charging money for any animations made about Felarya. Nothing so completely sucks the fun out of something for me as doing an activity for money. I really didn't expect to make a cent off of C&S, which was the main reason it was fun to write. Probably Karbo wants to make some coin off it if he gets desperate, but I don't. Not even for the movie.

Let see, this is how I see making a good animated Felarya moive:
1. The director must always be in contact with Karbo.
2. A group of good animators that can agree on a single style.
3. Have at least 2 Work-a-holics with lots coffee.
4. Try to find voice actors whose voice is closest to what Karbo imagens the voice to be.
5. As for story line, maybe animate one of the Tomes?

LASTLY, EVERYONE INVOLED MUST HAVE FUN.

Ok, now for the real thing. Yah, denfinetly a Felarya moive would have to be an animated moive. Live action can only do so much and even then it just wouldnt feel right. With an animated movie on the other hand, you could do so much more. That and really, one would just need to find the right voice actors and some good animators. Also, keep it out of mainsteams hands. Dont need to ruine it by letting it hit the mainstream media.

I never considered what live-action actors would work for Felarya. Mostly, I pondered what sort of voice talent one would look for. How high-pitched and cheery would the voice of Crisis need to be? How much subtle, soft-spoken menace would there be in the voice of Jade?

And I understand the reluctance to ever use big-name actors for these roles. But now that I think about it...dye Kate Beckinsale's hair pink and you've got yourself a great Anna.
