Tale Of Honor: My friend and I have been playing Minecraft for over two years now. We have had many adventures and such in the various servers we've visited. A bout a month or two ago we started to retell these tales to each other, but we fleshed them out into plots. We had actually created stories. So i had been thinking to myself of a project i had started the previous year called Geeknerd1337: The movie. It was the single most narcissistic thing i had ever done. It had very little story and focus at the time. I had no inspiration. Then we told our stories and the project was given life. So we have a script written out and are currently working on the project. Trailers:
Trailer 3: Teaser Summary:
Almax, a ranger who wants more out of life, and his best friend (protagonist) Julius, an explorer who also feels he can achieve much more, decide to enter a fencing contest the king hosted after being prodded to by his nobles and subjects that would determine a new squire. Almax, however, came down with a disease and was unable to attend the contest that Julius wins. Julius is able to use his position of knight to make his way up the social ladder into becoming a well-respected noble, and Almax later follows in his footsteps.
Mind you I'm am intentionally leaving out the entire summary for hype purposes. This is not the entire story and doesn't entirely represent the whole movie. Our Goals: Our goal for this is to create a rich dark atmosphere in which we can tell an intriguing story. We want to show that we can make a story that people will want to follow. We want to set a very serious atmosphere as opposed to other machinimas in minecraft.
Also, we plan to have the movie out before the end of the summer but nothing is concrete. We have to work on set design, filming, voice acting, and editing. We are putting a lot of work into this project. it may look a bit low quality, but every day I (the filmer and editor) am finding new ways to make the videos hiugher quality in audio and visual areas. Who all is working on it:

I would like to state how excited I am t work on this project. It's something that i am really passionate about and hope other people enjoy as well. I'm looking forward to all the new applicants and hope to work well in the future.
We are looking for voice actors and extras to be featured in our Minecraft movie. Really the only conditions are you have to have Skype (so we can record your voice) and you have to be willing to work with the crew. The more experienced the better, fill out the blank application Geek made and we'll see about getting you in.
Chance of Getting In
The first few people we look at are probably going to be part of the movie. Why? Because we need actors and extras. For those of you who don't know, an extra is a background actor whose main job is to do something in the background, like playing billiards at a bar. Please take the time to fill out an application even if you aren't sure you will participate.
I am now wiling to take good set designers under the age of 14. You must in someway prove your good building skills on the server, but you will now be accepted if you are under the age of 14 for set design only.
