    …Being created by fans for the fans!

    Have a look at the opening credits for series one, and some partial test animation…

    I’m actually kind of impressed.

    The voice acting may not be perfect [although Lister ain’t that bad!], but both the animation and the food gag were done rather well! For the sake of supporting a fan product I’ll be keeping my eye on this…

    I actually let out a bit of a chuckle at the Hot Dog gag. I’m impressed. Keep up the good work.

    Voice wise, Lister was best. Why Duff beer though?

    Hmm, I didn’t think Lister was that good – just ‘cos it was Scouse doesn’t mean it sounded like Lister. I thought Cat was quite good, actually.

    The hot dog gag punchline was nice, but the pacing of the setup could do with improvement. Interesting, though, I’ll be watching out to see what else you come up with.

    Lister’s line “Kryten, I knooooooow” really bugged me. The first time I watched it I had to stop. It made me cringe.

    Wow, very very good. Leaps and bounds ahead of the attempt I made at a Red Dwarf animation. :p I can’t wait to see the finished product! (and can do voice acting if you’re interested. I’ve got a high-ish quality mic)

    As previously stated, my Kryten is supposedly very good. My Rimmer, on the other hand, isn’t so much an imitation of Chris Barrie as it is an embodiment of the character. Or so I’m told.

    Could you email me a few samples, (WAV, etc) of each character (Rimmer and Kryten), reading some of the lines from the attatched script (below)?

    This is the rough draft for our test ‘pilot’ for the animated series…

    ******

    ‘Timehole’

    After title sequence, we open on a shot of STARBUG, zooming to camera, R to L.

    CUT inside to interior, Kryten and Lister seated.

    KRYTEN- Sir, it…it just DOESN’T make SENSE!

    LISTER- Kryten, I KNOW…

    KRYTEN- I mean, WHY would they DO such a thing?!

    LISTER- Kryten, you just have to accept that that’s the way it IS…

    KRYTEN- But who perpetrated this cruel hoax? WHY is it ALLOWED to continue??!

    LISTER- Krytes, if you want to fit in with humans, you have to learn to ACCEPT illogical things in life…

    KRYTEN- It’s just so EVIL! So downright WRONG!

    LISTER- But that’s the WAY IT IS. Hot dogs are sold 10 to a pack, and buns are 8 to a pack! You have to simply accept illogical facts like that if you want to blend in once we reach Earth!

    RIMMER- Oh yes, because a faux paus in the the area of hot dogs to buns ratios will make him stand out, not the fact that his head looks like a mound of Silly Putty that’s been left out in the sun for a fortnight.

    Suddenly CAT pops his head in from the front of STARBUG…

    CAT- I hate to interupt this deep discussion of life, the universe and everything…but we have a ‘Swirly Thing Alert’ situation!

    LISTER- Cat, how many times have I told you? You need to be more specific than that! I mean, how are we supposed to know what the smeg you are talkin’ about, unless you give us a more DETAILED
    description of what it IS out there?!

    CAT- Sorry, Bud.

    LISTER- I mean, every time there’s something ODD out there, YOU come back and tell us ‘It’s a SWIRLY thing’ or a ‘GLOWING thing’ or a ‘PULSATING thing’…do you see a pattern here?

    CAT- Yeah, of course I do! You like to YELL at me a lot!

    LISTER rolls his eyes in exasperation.

    CAT- Maybe ya better come see for yourself…!

    LISTER, KRYTEN and RIMMER join CAT in the COCKPIT.

    LISTER- Will ya look at that! What is it, Krytes?

    SHOT out of the front of STARBUG, a massive rotating mass of color.

    KRYTEN- Best guess, I would say it’s some sort of vortex, a massive rupture in the space time continuum, leading somewhere where time and logic have NO MEANING!

    CAT- Oh, great…a doorway to the Bush Administration!

    LISTER- What’s that? Looks like something just roared out of the center!

    RIMMER- Incoming, at two ten!

    CUT to shot of a radar screen, a small blip moving across it to the center.

    KRYTEN- Interesting! The vortex seems to have spit out a object of some sort, headed directly for us!

    LISTER- Do a security scan, see if it’s safe to bring aboard.

    KRYTEN- Right away, Sir!

    DISSOLVE to the group, all seated around a table…Lister is holding a small cannister, about a foot long.

    LISTER- So this is it?

    KRYTEN- Yes, Sir…an object from the late 20th century, according to Starbug’s carbon dating software…apparently it contains a pilot…

    CAT- A PILOT? In THAT little thing? What’s he gonna steer, the ‘Billy Barty’ party ship?

    KRYTEN- No, no Sir…a PILOT…a videotaped episode for a potential television series.

    LISTER- Then why does it have these ‘warning’ messages on the exterior?

    SHOT of the CANNISTER in LISTERS grip…it reads ‘CAUTION- Potential Danger- View at Own Risk’.

    LISTER- I say we go for it…I mean, how bad can it be?

    DISSOLVE to STARBUG cabin w/ large wall sized video monitor, CAT, LISTER and RIMMER seated. KRYTEN stands next to the video player in the wall, tape in hand.

    KRYTEN- Are you SURE about this, mister Lister?

    LISTER- I was BORN sure, Kryten…pop it in!

    CUT to the static ridden screen, which goes to black…then the video fades in. It’s the ‘RED DWARF USA’ pilot. We see a few seconds of a selected scene.

    CUT to LISTER, CAT, RIMMER…all looking utterly HORRIFIED.

    CUT to KRYTEN, eyes bugged out… his head EXPLODES.

    THE END.

    Cat’s quip about the Bush Administration is wrong for his character. Remember, this is the sort of guy who is completely uninterested in anything except his clothes, his hair and eating.

    Plus, the joke’s been done to death. Yeah, yeah Bush is an idiot, blah, blah, Iraq War. It’s too much of a ‘now’ joke for ‘Red Dwarf’.

    If you want to keep it in though, give it to Rimmer or Kryten. They’re the sort to know their history and politics.

    Also, the Billy Barty joke is too obscure and again wrong for Cat.

    My only other two attempts at writing a ‘script’ were admittedley well receieved, but I have no problem admitting this is all VERY new to me!

    As I mentioned, I am not a writer, Im new to this…that entire script (above) was literally ‘off the top of my head’, based on an idea I had, that was it…I suspect that there are a LOT better writers here on this very forum, and I would MORE than appreciate any assistance with this that might be offered…after all, this whole project is meant to be ‘by fans, FOR fans’.

    *****

    Good point.
    Ok, so we need to make the line a reference to ‘a doorway’ to someplace where time and logic have no meaning…how about changing it to ‘Oh, great! A doorway to BBC Four!’

    *****

    Also, the Billy Barty joke is too obscure and again wrong for Cat.

    *****

    Hmmm…well, it still needs to be a line COMING FROM Cat, as he is the one ‘confused’ by the term ‘pilot’…so how about changing it to something more simplistic, like ‘A PILOT? In THAT little thing? What?s he gonna steer, the ?Oompa Loompa’ party ship?’

    What do you think?

    Why not just something a bit simpler and punchier, like a dumb country. That’s not out of keeping with Red Dwarf lines from the past (“welsh fish and chip shop”/”Albanian shepherd” etc) I’d change the line to Rimmer though.

    Hmm. How bout…

    KRYTEN- Best guess, I would say it?s some sort of vortex, a massive rupture in the space time continuum allowing objects to pass through it into a different plane of reality.
    CAT- Wait a second, bud. You telling me that thing is some kinda magic doorway?
    KRYTEN- In a way, sir, yes. Probably leading to somewhere where time and logic have no meaning, where reason and reality is distorted beyond all human comprehension!
    CAT- What’s he saying, helipad head?
    RIMMER- It’s a doorway into your mind.
    CAT- Great!
    LISTER- Ignore ‘im, Cat. Woah… what’s that? …

    Cheers,

    I think the Oompa Loompa line might work better. Well, Oompa Loompa or Munchkin.

    Again, I think the BBC Four joke is a little too ‘now’ and Cat wouldn’t have any idea about it. Yes, I know Kryten made a similar joke about Channel 5 during the 10th Anniversary Smeg-Ups, but C5 is just a universal joke. Perhaps something like “A doorway to a shell suit/flares convention?” or something similar might work. Not that I profess to know the first thing about scriptwriting.

    P.S. – Cheers for the MST3K appreciation, Dr. Forrester was by far the best Mad. “Push the Button, Frank!”

    After coming over all Red Dwarfy after Back To Earth, I wrote a full length Dwarf script titled “Tiresias”. No idea why or what I expected to do with it. Guess I just wanted to dip my hand back into writing after a long break of being a full-time braindead employee. Wonder if Doug ever accepts spec scripts…

    then again if anyone ever fancies animating a whole half hour episode… :D

    Try these:

    _________________________________________________________________
    (Original sentence sounded too American.)

    RIMMER- Incoming, at two ten!
    CAT- There’s plenty of time. It’s only one o’clock now!
    CUT to shot of a radar screen, a small blip moving across it to the center.
    KRYTEN- Interesting! The vortex seems to have spat out a object of some sort, headed directly for us!
    RIMMER: Ah, so that’s what happened to that carton of Lister’s curry I flushed out of the airlock.
    _______________________________________________________
    (Added jokes.)

    KRYTEN- Yes, Sir? this pod contains an object, from the late 20th century according to Starbug?s carbon dating software?apparently the pod contains a pilot?

    CAT- A PILOT? In THAT little thing? Who the hell volunteered? The Incredible Shrinking Man?
    ________________________________________________________________________________

    (While it may be obscure reference to an audience, Lister is a bit of a movie buff and we know they watch films together. In addition its unlikely that the 20th century sent the film into space so I made sure the spacial carrier wasn’t referenced date wise.)

    LISTER- I say we go for it?I mean, how bad can it be?
    Rimmer stares daggers at him silently.

    Would you perhaps be interested in writing up some 10-15 min scripts, based on concepts we have for series one?

    Example: Cat seems to be overly addicted to using the Virtual Reality software on Starbug, in particular, playing out ‘superheo’ roles (a scene from this potential story can be seen in the animated opening credits, Cat in the ‘Catman’ suit, holding the electric cables, etc) and the gang is worried about him…we thought that a REAL emrgency might somehow come about, and Cat suddenly has to truly be the ‘hero’, or something…basically, thats all we have, we just liked the ‘Cat as a Superhero’ base for a story, and we need writers to fill in the plot aspects…you don’t even need to add the jokes and so on, we can attempt that part…we could use storyline elements, tho…;)

    >Might have to get Pete, the resident of the UK on the project, to look into this, then!

    Get him to watch Ant Muzak as well:

    I?m Pete BTW?..Wow there is some of the best British talent in that vid??..How come I?ve never seen it before. Thanks for letting me know about this one ?

    Sadly I spent the afternoon shopping with my family, all I could find was herta frankfurters at 10 to a pack and buns at 6 to a pack. It throws the equation out even further??..and it would drive Kryten crazy.

    I even photographed them, how sad is that!????..My wife despairs.

    Cheers

    Greetings, All!

    Wanted to let you all know, we have our RIMMER!…;)

    Benjamin Rudman, a talented voice actor, won the role…you can hear his read of Rimmer on our ‘Audio/Video’ page on the RDA site, along with some B&W early test animation assembled by Pete…let us know what you think!

    Thanks!

    It’s a doorway into your mind…. quite nice to hear my little contribution come to life actually. If you want to use my Tiresias script I can send it your way, but it’s a big undertaking… it’s probably about 40 minutes long.

    I think your Lister is too droll (no offence). I could probably provide you with a Lister and/or Cat if you wanted, but your current Cat is pretty spot on anyway.

    Thanks…;)

    RE, your ‘Tiresias’ script…any way you could trim it down to 23 min or so? If not, it might make a cool ‘two parter’…not sure how Pete would feel about it he’s in charge of scripts and story development, etc…best to email him and ask…

    peteleggett@talktalk.net

    Pete is also doing the voice for Lister, but we are open to the possibility of a better version…send him an audio audition (MP3 or WAV) reading some of the lines from the script, we would love to hear it…and I’m happy you liked my attempt at Cat…;)

    Well, here it is. Don’t be too harsh on me, it’s just something I knocked up over the course of two evenings for my own amusement. It’s only a first draft anyway so could probably do with an edit or two (to put it mildly) and a rethink here and there. These are just the bare unedited bones. Be interested to know what people think of it though.

    What did I think?

    I LOVED it.

    It was intelligent, funny and dramatic…felt VERY ‘Red Dwarf’ to me, especially the great ending sequence (always important in RD to end with a memorable last scene, I think)

    VERY true to the characters, and very involving…I literally could not stop reading, wanting to see what happens next. WELL DONE!

    We need to get Pete’s input on it, he is the script director/editor…but even if we don’t use this particular story (which I would like to be able to figure a way to do), I would love to have you submit a few write ups based on the concept outlines we have posted on the website, under ‘Episodes & Outlines’…would you be interested?

    Thanks!

    Cheers for the feedback… glad you liked it, it’s hard to have any kind of objective opinion about something you wrote yourself so you become reliant on other people to react to it to know whether it’s, pardon the expression, even worth a wank. Even if it’s just something you do for your own fun. (The writing… not the wank. Although that works.)

    I’d be happy to have a bash at some of your ideas, and churn out some (considerably shorter) scripts when I have a bit of time… which is rare at the moment but should find a bit of time one evening this week to have a pop.

    The only suggestion I have would be to remove or delete the actual page the link goes to?

    That, or maybe upload a text file there instead that says something like ‘coming soon’?…;)

    I agree with Pete, its too good to spoil for the fans…

    Hey, do you have any preconceived imagery in mind as far as the characters go, etc?

    I wanted to do some character designs for the storyline, wanted your takes on it all first…if you could, please email me a copy of the script and your thoughts (we want to show at least one scene from your story in the opening credits for series one)…

    There is a reason for him being droll in the opening scene. But he does perk up when he sees the pod

    But I honestly welcome anyone who would like to audition for Lister.

    And I?m really looking forward to reading Carl?s script. As a two parter sounds like a good idea to me, maybe to end the first series with.

    Looks good, a few things look interesting. Not too sure about the Lister voice. As Seb said, just because you have a scouse accent doesn’t mean it’s good. It has potential, just needs bit more enthusiasm. Cat and Kryten are very good tho.

    The pace seems a bit slow to me, but it’s bit hard to judge from the first scene alone.

    Noticed that there is some competition heading your way too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZVbWS2G5aM

    Good luck with it tho, sure it will be good. Why Duff Beer tho?

    I’ve contributed a script called ‘Tiresias’ to this project (and working on a couple of others too at the moment) and these guys Pete and Kev have been a complete pleasure to work with. Some of the animation and original character models from the script have been fantastic… talented fuckers! very high hopes for this project and very much looking forward to watching full episodes, and also seeing my words come to life in a couple of episodes as well! (which will probably be quite a surreal feeling…)
