Freddy TV Pitch - Open Source Vigilante

Open Source Vigilante

(Repurpused last week's film pitch for a tv pitch)
  • Tag Line
    • Kid genius Tay Lecom is on her search for father’s scammer, which brings her to the wild lands that is the internet, where a team of internet vigilantes is at war with the cybercrime organisation, w0rldsm1le.
      • Think Summer Wars/Digimon meets wild west/samurai movies.

  • Paragraph/Set up (was going to have 2 separate paragraphs but ended up combining them)
    • In this world, the internet is presented as another world where your Internet ID is a more fantastical version of yourself. In the internet you can be anybody: a muscular 10 foot dragon ninja or a prince from Nigeria. The internet has cities and stores like the real world, but no goverment, which gives scammers the opportunity to do as they will with innocent people. That is what happens to Mr. Lecom, who after an internet scam is sent to jail. Now is up to her daughter, Tay, to find the clues and evidence that could save her father and defeat the cybercrime organisation, w0rldsm1le. Not an easy task, as w0rldsm1le has countless minions spread through out the network that will impede, presented on the internet world as real battles with swords, guns, blaming on lag, etc.

  • Average Episode
    • The main goal of every episode is for  the protagonist find a clue that could help proof Mr. Lecom, or other innocent people that where scammed, innocence (evidence that the person was scammed, video footage of what the person was doing while the fake crime was comited, stolen information or money, etc.). Obstacles in the forms of monsters, cowboys, ninjas,  or whatever said cybercriminal decided his ID would be will impede the protagonists process.
    • Although the overall genre would be action/adventure, every episode would have its own genre that would be presented at the beginning of the episode (with film language, not literally.)
      • For example, an episode based more on thrillers may start with an internet heist, while an episode based on westerns may start with a duel.


  • Episodes
    • Episode 1 (Pilot)
      • After unsuccessfully trying to defeat a 10 foot skeleton that could have information of her father, Tay is presented to a team of internet vigilantes.
    • Episode 2
      • While fighting a squad of unicorn ninjas, Tay reveals more about what has happened about her father with their new teammates.
    • Episode 3
      • After having trouble defeating a Japanese cat who sell illegal dating sim video games, the team finds help from an unusual source: Tay’s father.
    • Episode 4
      • One of Tay’s teammates, ComputerMan, a wrestling star now computer star owner tries to teach Tay how to open more to people to defeat their next opponent: a flamboyant microphone in search for some karaoke battle. … and some fun.
    • Episode 5
      • A member of the team reveals his dark past, he was a previous member of w0rldsm1le. Meanwhile the rest of the team are dealing with a troll. Yeah, that kind of troll.
    • Episode 6
      • Part One of a two-parter
      • After defeating their official 50th minion, the vigilante team feel that they are on roll, but a treason from within the team may change that.
    • Episode 7
      • Final Part of the two-parter
      • The team (the humans, not their internet id) is stuck on an elevator with no access to the internet.

  • Set up… of how I would plan this show to work
    • Its an episodic show, with a goal for each episode, each arc of a season and the eventual show
      • The first season would deal with proving Mr. Lecom
      • The complete series (thinking two seasons) is to defeat w0rldsm1le.

(The following drawings are from last week's pitch but felt they still apply.)



Dane Armour HW Week 2


Nautilus Boy



Tagline: Sent to infiltrate and plot an invasion against the world above sea level, Nort the Nautilus must juggle the voices in his head, his pants and his heart as he navigates the trials and tribulations of Junior High.

Paragraph: Nort is an undercover Nautilus who is really just trying to fit in, live up to the expectations of his Father (and commanding General), pass all his classes, understand his hormones and out of control (literally) sex drive, not get beat up and win over the girl of his dreams.

Average Episode: Nort is really just a teenager who wants to live a normal life, problems and all, but everytime a normal teenage moral conflict rears it's head he is overwhelmed, conflicted between taking orders from his overbearing Father, meeting the demands of the student curriculum and surviving the social battle ground of school life. With every episode a seemingly simple problem spirals out of control as Nort runs around trying to please everyone, keep up the his admittedly poor disguise and reign in his over active sex drive.

Episode Ideas:



"Sex Ed": The final exam for Sex Ed is fast approaching, Nort and his rival Thorston (who hates Nort for usurping his place as biggest dork in the class) are both frantically putting the final touches on their projects when the class bully bursts into the library and destroys them both. Now Nort and Thorston must work together to make the best Sex Ed project ever!

"Sea Ahoy": Nort tricks his father into cancelling the invasion by inviting him to a school ball themed 'Under the Sea'.

"Excursion Incursion" : On a school excursion to the aquarium Nort realises the horrors of animal cruelty and plots to save the sea creatures on display with the help of his big crush, Elsa.

"Bully Bust" : After one too many toilet dunkings, Nort lashes out at the grade bullies, revealing his true identity and scaring them to hell. Now he must manage the awkwardly forced freindships with his abusers in order to stop them from spreading the word.

"Valentines Hush": It's Valentines day and Nort has finally built up the courage to tell Elsa he likes her, but his stray tentacle has it's sights firmly set on the substitute teacher.

Episode 7



Jade's Journal - Week 2 - Kennedy Tarrell

Jade’s Journal

I wrote this for pre-k (ages 2-5ish) so please excuse the incredibly simple plots and learning crammed into every episode! (Idk, I just think preschool programming has a lot of cool stuff you can do with it?)

Tagline

Jade is the living embodiment of a five year old asking "Why?" all the time, and she has just one goal: fill up her research journal with every fact she can about the nature around her. Together with her little "co-researcher" brother, Jade attempts to catalog the world starting in her own backyard!

Paragraph
An aspiring environmental scientist and quick thinker, Jade (Age 6) is endlessly curious about plants, climate, and animals. Although she's full of questions, what sets Jade apart is her desire to find the answers herself. The comedic foil and occasional hapless tagalong to Jade’s antics, Rory is Jade’s two-year-old brother. He too is an eager (although bashful and mischievous) learner! Jade's journal focuses on teaching children ages 2-5 about their environments.  Because weather, animals, and geology vary from location to location, Jade’s interests span all climate zones, and she’ll often focus on things in nature that everyone faces. (Like gravity! You can’t escape that!)


Average Episode
Jade's passion for astronomy leads to a covert nighttime mission up to the roof. When Rory finds his sister noting constellations in her journal, he joins in on the mission! But his insistence on being "closer to the sky" forces jade to explain the power of telescopes.


Episodes

1.) Jade starts the first chapter of her journal, and decides to press fall leaves in it to save. What is chlorophyl and why do leaves change in some parts of the world? Jade is determined to find out, while Rory is determined to jump in a pile of her pressed leaves.

2.) Rory's day: Rory decides to go on a research mission of his own: stalk the "wild" pet cat. When a series of accidents befalls the journal, it's up to rory to forge some findings! He's two, so this doesn't go well.

3.) It's a snow day! Jade's  finds a way to collect samples of snow "testing" only to find that her research has been assembled into a snowman! What can they learn about the climate from this guy?

4. ) Are cacti dangerous? Rory seems to think so! Jade and Rory take a trip to the kitchen windowsill to learn about these desert plants and their ability to retain water. Jade's succulent collection gets a little out of hand, and Rory has to teach her the art of subtlety in plant decorating.


5.) Rory gets a betta fish, and no, Rory, you just can't pet it. Instead, Rory and Jade assemble a cruelty-free fishtank! (That has to be a thing, right?!) What's the deal with fish, anyway? Rory and Jade find out.

Hi-Gear Battles - Week 2 - TV Pitch

Logline: We follow Mira through their adventures in the space colonies greatest sport: Robot combat! Paragraph: Set in space the story revolves around a shy, unassertive girl by the name of Mira.

Nova: Going to college for robotics Nova has always had a huge passion for robots. She used to do robot combat when she was younger but didn't really participate in the tournaments or any means of professional combat. For her it was just a way to test new parts she invented. Now that her sister is showing a similar interest she is aggressively pushing her little sister to blossom on the battlefield. Also gives her a chance to field test out new inventions again heh heh.
Mom: Supportive of her robot-crazy daughters she runs a space delivery shop that delivers to multiple colonies. She often has Mira and Nova run out packages when she gets a little swamped with work. Often this results with some unsavory run-in's with the daughters rivals.
Mach: A robot that Mira has been tinkering around with building for years. Nova uses an experimental AI she developed to give him life. Mach tends to be a sarcastic robot that slowly warms up to the girls.
Average Episode: Mira wakes up glued to the screen listening to the latest Space Colosseum news. Wearing a t-shirt of her favorite robot STARCRUSHER. A commercial comes on announcing sign ups for the new local tournaments. Her sister Nova elbows her suggesting she should sign up and that her robot Mach has come a long way. Mira deflects but still heads over to the sign up station anyways. The person in charge asks Mira where her robot is and Mira freaks out about to run away when her sister Nova shows up with Mach. Begrudgingly both Mach and Mira sign up for the tournament. Nova promising Mach better and newer parts, and convincing Mira how cool it would be to fight on the same field as her heroes like STARCRUSHER. But for Mira to be accepted in she needs to fight an initiation battle. It goes really rough in the beginning, Mach not listening to Mira's directions and being really sarcastic the whole time. They pull it together after Mira convinces Mach that they "Need to work together if they are going to achieve their goals." And they pass the first initiation test by the skin of their teeth.

Kaitrin Snodgrass HW 2 "Campbell's Best Hero Crew"

Campbell’s Best Hero Crew 





TAGLINE: Three heroes use their ability to dance and magic in conjunction to save their town from destruction. 

Campbell City is steeped in magic and mythology. Although the people of the town embrace their magical culture they have not shied away from the Modern world. And as with most culture Modern dance crazes have also hit the town. Our heroes are bestowed with magical powers that they use in conjecture with their dance abilities.These heroes were summoned together because a dark force threatens the town of Campbell. A powerful wizard known as Master Nefarious wants to rid the city of all modernity and frivolous dancing.

If only they get over their differences to work together as a team.

2. “Let me Lead”: Ricky attempts to be leader when they fight a lizard monster but is bitterly defeated because he is too rash and doesn’t plan. Nakia then says she should be leader but has the opposite problem. She over thinks and is too hesitant. Shohei calmly asks if he could give a go since he’s been researching the monsters and their weaknesses. The other two begrudgingly agree. Shohei is a natural leader and the team works together to take down the monster. Nakia and Ricky excitedly exclaimed he should be the leader since he did such a great job. He shrugs and says “Nah..” episode ends on that note. 

3. “It takes one”: In a effort to prove himself to the other two Ricky decides to investigate the monsters appearances. He ends up getting captured by a monster and the other two have to save him. He’s embarrassed but learns the valuable lesson that he’s part of a team and doesn’t have to go it alone. 

4. “Don’t Sweat the Magic”: It’s a day in the life episode of Nakia. Between dance, super heroing, school, Piano Lessons and her part time job she feels a little stretched thin.

6. “Fight the Power” : Master Nefarious Finally Shows his face to the town on all the screens. He exclaims how they’ve turned against the ancient ways and he wants to bring it back. A spell is placed on the town and they seem to go back in time. Our heroes have to figure out where the talisman is and how they can destroy it to return the town back to normal. Going to a maze like castle with riddles and monsters they find the talisman and destroy it returning the town to normal. Episode ends with the question “Who is this master Nefarious?” 


7. "Talking bout Magic and Juice" : ‘The Juice Shack’ is all the rage in Campbell now. Everyone is drinking it. Except Nakia and Shohei. Nakia believes they add to much sugar in that junk and it’s not healthy anyways and Shohei doesn't get why you would mix vegetables together to make an even more disgusting drink. Slowly the town starts acting strange, including Ricky. Everyone starts destroying their technology as if they are possessed. Its up to Shohei and Nakia to snap Ricky out of it and figure out why this is happening. Eventually they realized ‘The Juice Shack’ Is a front and Master Nefarious has put a spell on those who drank the beverages.

Based on webcomic (this is what my webcomic I am working on will be about) 

Since a skating team needs at least 16 people there will also be a hand full of secondary characters who are on the team.
