Considering how this board is based around mediums usually used for story-telling, I'm sure more than a few of us have a few ideas that we've been kicking around. So
>ITT: Pitch a show/comic/film.
A harem series.
where all the girls are christmas cakes
A complete fucking revamp of the way Marvel and DC handle their comics.
Instead of trying to maintain universes where multiple comics take place. Maintaining continuity and other bullshit.
A team just pitches a story and the characters they will be using. Then they make that book for how many ever issues they need to tell it. It will be completely self contained. No book crosses over into another. They can have 5 Batman books going at the same time. A justice league book and individual hero books. It doesn't matter because no more universe or multiverse. So the heroes and villains can die also.
A zany Armadillo and his straightman sidekick John the Basset hound. Together they have funny adventures.
The twist is we throw in 90s kid references, shit on disliked celebrities and have a lesbian side couple that gets an episode that wins an emmy.
Cartoons are easy OP
The Tropes would demand that the henchmen succeed. Until their Villain bosses come to collect them and ruin everything. Because henches are not allowed to show up the bosses.
A movie in which a testerone-poisoning grim-reaper kills demons left and right.
There is no Heaven and death and hell are in conflict over the possession of the souls of the dead (hell wants torture, death wants oblivion), so the grim-reaper follows around in his "death temple" that teleports to wherever hell is making an incursion, fighting the demonic scourge in gore-tastic battles.
The grim-reaper looks like Guts from Berserk, and was a former roman soldier chosen by the god Thanatos when losing a battle in ancient Iberia.
He uses a chainsaw scythe.
The current plot is kickstarted when his grand-grand-grand-[ad infinitum]-daughter moves in to the Vatican and her brother is kidnapped by demons, so it's now up to her and her grandfather to rescue him.
There's an Ophanim (wheel-like angel) and a sea-troll as extra members of the team.
If you replace the word "Henchmen" with "Supervillains", you'd have "The Spectacular Foes of Spider-Man".
That being said, low-tier villain protagonists is an area that's not exactly covered much, so there's always room for more things like that.
Two older kids go on a magical spirit journey through the underworld.
They go looking for a way out through afterlives based off of various cultures while being trailed by spoopy ghost-killing monsters. They eventually realize that they're here forever.
Series ends with the universe being destroyed, with the protagonists wondering where they'll go next. How they died is hinted at, but never outright stated and shown.
Art style is very soft and flowing, pacing and episode to episode plot is reminiscent of Samurai Jack, music is very chill but somewhat sad most of the time.
This is an idea I've had for a webcomic. Following in her father's footsteps, a waifish young lady becomes a cop. What she lacks in physical power, she makes up in guts and determination. One day, while intervening in a bank robbery, she saves the life of a scientist. As a thank you, he builds a mini mecha and donates it to the police force. She then uses the robot to fight a drug dealer who is distributing a hyper addicting drug that transforms people into monsters. As she fights the war on super drugs, she partners with an older cop who is a master sniper, but is getting way too old for this shit. It also turns out that there is an even larger conspiracy going on. The tone would be a mixture of Lethal Weapon, Gurren Lagann and Black Dynamite.
Comic book writer/Illustrator starts work on his own project. The main antagonist is written to be so powerful he manages to escape the comic book and trap his creator inside, while he runs a muck in the free world.
A colonization fleet crash lands on a planet for mysterious reasons. A couple thousand years later, the colony's descendants treat technology like mysticism.
Our group of heroes are independent shipbreakers. They go into "ruins" and pillage what they can find and sell it.
One fateful scraprun has them find a black box with an AI in it. The AI says that protocall or whatever says they need to activate an S.O.S beacon to the rest of Humanity, which we don't know even exist anymore.
The show is our heroes adventuring in this pseudo-fantasy sci-fi world to find the S.O.S codes and encountering interesting people and places.
Johnny Bravo remake where he is in university
he happens to meet some of his old friends form the nerd years and they convince him to play magic the gathering again at a tournament because theyll be chicks there. i dont know something like that. later they start a band for the babes
I want to make a Warrior Cats film series that typically follow the books with some changes here and there.
I would want it to be a mix of drama/comedy and I want it to be aimed at adults, not children (Why is the book series aimed at children? it gets brutal at times)
But, since it has a lot of books, a tv series is more likely and that makes me depressed.
A guy trying to be a Made Man in the Mafia, has to do one last hit before he is a Made Man. Unfortunately the hit went wrong, while trying to flee a bright light blinded him.
He wakes up in a strange tube, plug up. He was then released by a strange Indian boy who ran off before he could ask him anything. He hears foot steps and hides and see's a group of humaniod fish aliens. After that is a game of tag between him releasing humans and the aliens. He finds out the aliens have had ppl in stasis pods that perfectly preserve them.
Yada yada he flips a scorpion fish to work with him. With her, a pirate, a rounin, Indian boy, ww1 soldier, they overthrow the ship. Originally the gangster plans to head back to earth but the pirate convinces him to keep going and become a space boss.
There I wrote a thing.
I want to make an ant-man copy, except have his name be Dr. Might/Mite, depending if he's giant or small. Also a hero who uses magic to give himself super strength and endurance named High Priest.
Shadow of the Colossus: A Mini-Series by Genndy Tartakovsky.
One episode for each of the Colossi. Scenery porn and intense action sequences.
It's about a guy who is a muslim, but can't seem to stop blowing up.
He tries his best to explain his condition to people, but he always gets in shenanigans along the way.
>"I'm sorry I just killed your wife, I have a condition and I can't control it... ALU ACKBAR."
Coming to Animation Domination this SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAAAAAAY.
a team of teen superheroes that live in a world where all types of races and types of people exists, and basically all types of shit has affected history. for example, robots have been around since greek times, skeletons and all types of shit just walk around in the street and also have pastimes and shit. also, science and magic are divided into two different categories, soul and sense. I have characters, but no drawings and their personalities are pretty basic right now. i want to make a cartoon with them some time, but i don't know how that might pan out, since i don't know how to draw. i also have ideas for two other shows, but i don't know if you guys want to hear that
Tell me if this has been done before, but I came up with an idea for some super hero fiction the other day.
Takes place in your typical comic book with way too many super powered freaks. The protagonist is some cynical loser in his late twenties with a F tier super power. He use to be on some street level super crew when he was young but bailed when he couldn't deal with super hero drama bullshit, and was sick of always being lawful good.
Any how all the top brass super heroes are away fighting aliens on another planet or some shit. With no one to keep low tier super hero/villain inline they start tearing shit up and putting everyone at risk. The Government approach our reluctant protagonist and Draft him into a task force to put rogue super heroes and villains in their place.
A show about the old Marvel Bullpen animated in the style of Silver Age Ditko which is mostly comedic but also in a serial fashion with some drama brewing between some of the artists and writers and it'd be starring me as Stan "The Man" Lee. Also I'd say EXCELSIOR all the time because that shit is s-w-e-e-t.
You know what kids like? Mermaids! So lets make a postapocalyptic series based after the Alastair Reynolds "Poseidon's Children" series where the Panspermian merfolk are left with a devastated Earth without the support of the Mechanism. Our plucky female lead has to deal with a despotic matriarchy and rogue genetically-engineered krakens that threaten what is left of seagoing human civilization. All we need is a toy deal and some lesbians and it'll sell like hotcakes!
I guess I'll throw my hat into the pot:
Bleak, soulless future is ruled by a supreme overlord, who by that era is unable to enjoy music since it was historically wiped out a century prior.
Curious, the overlord creates a trio a robots which each possess separate recording abilities as well as a mini-time travelling device. Their purpose is to go back in time and attempt to capture every known musical genre/defining musics that inspired generations.
Essentially it's an adventure each episode with a song towards the end that either resolves or attempts to resolve the plot. Robots record the sound and song and move on to the next point in time.
It's just a thought roaming in my mind, and I figured the ending would be that the music had influenced the robots beyond their designated program that once they return to the overlords, the music inspired a revolution and attempt to overthrow the dictator.
Just my take on trying to make a decent show that involves music, since those tend to suck.
i had an idea for a batman one off where Scarecrow figures out Batman's pathological fear of killing people and puts him in a situation where his actions force him to make a choice to actively kill someone or let one of the bat family die in a twisted experimental setting. As a bonus? Nobody ex machinas him out of the choice.
Pick a superhero or villain, doesn't matter who.
Make a comic about everyday life. Day job, relationships, paying bills, maybe a family. Bonus points for running into nemesis and just talking. All conflicts are resolved by making decisions without fists. Can be written like a sit-com or maybe even a soap, mockumentary style would also be acceptable now that those are starting to fade out.
Inspired by Justice League: Comfort and Joy
Run with a main character for a while and then pick another one once things run dry.
It would be an absurd, over the top homage to silver age superhero comics and 90s Shonen anime set in a neo-90s beachside city that combines American and Japanese elements with some futuristic and retrofuturistic influences.
Protagonist is 17 year old Jim Nagasaki, a laid back, stereotypically 90s-cool teenager with a love for skating, surfing and hanging out with his friends who leads a double life as superhero Ace Domino, the reincarnation of the cities guardian spirit.
There'd be quite a few absurd characters and storyarcs that I have in mind, a spoiled, rich, bimbo with a love for expansive clothes and plastic surgery trying to finance her lifestyle through becoming at first a very incompetent super villain and later and qually incompetent super hero, a feud between heaven and hell with god being basically a sleazy, rich, businessman and the devil more of a bitter, buffoonish Al Bundy type who's nostalgic for the time he was gods right hand and keeps himself alive through acts of petty evil, a flamboyant surfer gang in seapunk outfits...
You know, that kinda silly stuff.
five people are kidnapped and horribly experimented on.
the main Character is Kicker, who's been stuffed full of Bug DNA and is forced to murder his compatriots to survive.
it focuses on his attempts to retain his human nature despite having to do horrible things and losing his physical humanity
Seems like an interesting concept. I like Golems and work as a store clerk.
Show centred around totalitarian/authoritarian soldiers that get into all kinds of hijinks or somthing
