CASTING CALL: World Peace, Ltd.

“Everyone knows that nothing says ‘I Love You’ on Christmas like a banana that still has some yellow left in it…”

And with that said, A new Exploding Short, Tentatively titled “World Peace, Ltd.” is in the works.

A Primary (“Rough” sounds too unprofessional) draft of the script is up, and you can find it here.

We will need between 10 and 15 people in the cast. Casting will be at My house, (Call me for the address), Starting at Noon on Tuesday, December 26th. We will hopefully be ready to film on the 29th or 30th. If all goes well, we should be able to get this shot in a day.

Or Just show up

  1. yes, although the gorilla suit was too expensive, so I just plan to use Evan instead. He’s Apey enough. And yes, it was Paul’s idea, I just took it to heart.

  2. I am bothered, Arin…I would like it if you would mention it to me in the future, particularly when I was intending it for Exploding Shorts. I guess I will just have to work harder to make it all the better.

  3. I never knew you were planning on making a short of it. Andrew and I were just discussing the idea while editing one night, and I then thought up a script based off of it. But I apologize for any trouble that may have caused you.

  4. “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” – Picasso

    Ownership of ideas is shit. If you want to write and copyright a script that’s one thing, but you can’t own a premise any more than you can own a genre.

    And as far as definitions go, any short sanctioned by this site or signatories of Exploding Goldfish Films (all of you) falls under the umbrella of an “Exploding Short,” irrespective of who writes, directs and produces it.

    I’m glad to be an arbiter of disputes, but save the backstabbing, doubletalk and hurt feelings for Hollywood–they’re the ones who are good at it.

  5. I’m not exactly contending ownership or theft, I just don’t really see the need to have two post apocalypstic Christmas stories, different though they may be.

  6. there aren’t two, unless you want to do your own. Or unless you want to find a director to realize your individual vision. I’d do it, but I’m kind of busy at the moment. Either way, it’s just good fun since it won’t be coming out until far after Chrismas, and there’s no market for Christmas stories released in February.

  7. The second one would of course refer to my plans (as I think I described them, in conceptual form, to you) to make a short of it. I didn’t expect Exploding Shorts would be out for a while, maybe no until next year. I also need hot, dry weather or the semblance of for mine…
    Still…two post-apocalyptic Christmas stories seem uncalled for, but I would be disappointed to not make this one, being my only good short idea (well, since I can’t get a good script for the animation yet) I have.

  8. HEY!

    Just because I have an ape index of two does not, and I repeat DOES NOT make me ‘apey’!

    But with respect to your film, yes, I will assume the role of the venerable crossbred Irish-born ape with the dueling scar and the inferiority complex. Now all I have to do is read the script.

  9. Actually, I think two post-apocalyptic Christmas stories would be awesome! You can never have enough of that kind of movie, in my opinion.
