With the new series having just been announced, I'd like to post this topic with the intent of helping the guys about by handing in suggestions, ideas, just little helpful things to help the guys and gals at Edgeworks with their uber-brainstorms. Feel free to give opinions for each other's ideas! Oh and NO FLAMMING!

That's a stupid idea!

In all seriousness, ideas? I don't know, if Nerrolken wants to shoot a scene here in Indiana at a radio station, I can help get that sorted out... Other than that, I've got nothin'.

6-2-2010- Last day at the station. It's all over now.

Ask me why I keep on loving you when it's clear that you don't feel the same way for me... the problem is that as much as I can't force you to love me, I can't force myself to stop loving you.

-The Norm Meme
-The first time I was mentioned on the Edgeworks News Post, super cool of Nerrolken to have done this

I'm thinking a international man-hunt could be on the cards for a plot sequence. *nods*

Well I do have one thing to say and it is something I learned from District 9 and Niell Blokamp. In order for your work to succeed it needs to be different, I guess that goes without saying. I'm sure you have something in store but what that is exactly we don't know yet. Anyway, District 9 was a Sci Fi film, and yes there are a lot of Sci Fi films out in order for District 9 to be different it had to bring something new to the Sci Fi experience. The difference is Aliens. For years we have seen movies about aliens against humanity and all other what not...but in District nine the "alien" part of the film was not the aliens, it was in fact the setting of South Africa. The idea that first contact with another advanced species would occur with South Africa and not the USA was completely alien and un-thought of until District 9 brought a new idea to our minds.

I'm not saying the crew should do something similar to what District 9 did with its "difference" from the rest of film making, but Radical should strive to bring something new and different (even if it is a different perspective on how something is done).

Think of a few ways you can be different:
camera motion
film techniques
story telling devices

I'm sure you can think of more. I think for Radical to succeed and not just be another action series it needs to bring something new to how we see action films. Good luck!
