Moving On…

This is my first blog post for a long time! ( well in fact the first one this year) it has been a crazy end of the year!

The end of the year saw me finish and pass my long awaited apprenticeship (which I think I passed with flying colours) I have to say the modules was hard at times (even though I did lie my way through it for the best part) I am glad to say that my hard work did pay off, I did have great support form everyone at Cyfle ( that’s the company I did my apprenticeship with by the way)

With the end of the modules and the crying meant that my time at the company I was with had to end too! I had an amazing time at Orchard! Yes I was gutted I had to leave but hey that what happens, they gave me a great foothold that can help further myself in this career choice, the experience I have gained was just nothing I though would happen! (Please check my other post for more in depth detail… I am saying that just because I could do with more views…we have all been there… I think) I would like to thank everyone there at Orchard for a great time.

Now every has settled down, I am now testing the waters and trying to catch a media job that I worked hard to try and get, this is not as easy as I thought! (Well it wasn’t going to be easy anyway) I am asking around for work experience to help advance my chances (So hopefully this will)

We will see what the future holds! I may have to take a break for media just to make a little bit of money? I can accept that! Saying that I do have a ton load of ideas I want write down and try to make (maybe the idea list maybe a whole different post)

until next time then…

Mass Effect: Fan Fiction

Mass Effect: Universe

This is fiction and based in the universe of the popular game series Mass Effect. It follows a young alliance trooper named Jack Rhodes.

This is a little thing I wrote a couple of years back.

Entry One:

Hello my name is Jack Rhodes… I am kind of new to all this military diaries, but my commander suggest that we do these so that we don’t lose yourself and its their to remind you of who you are …but personally I just think he doesn’t want us to keep talking to him cause he is one annoying son of a bitch, he hates us all, I will quote him ‘you are all faceless drones in a game of chess I am playing” well I tell you right now I am shit at chess.

I have a list of questions I have to answer in these things… It says its for morale but again I think it’s here just to piss me off or just say why you joined the alliance and more bullshit like that.

So lets start things off… Well you know my name I was born on May 7th 2167 I was orphaned at an early age my father fought in the first contact war and died by a hand of a Turian, he was part of the N7 operation that invaded Turian invested Shanxi he was partnered with his friend Jack Harper on Shanxi and died in the temple Palaven, I know this because all I had left from my father was his dog tags accompanied with a letter telling me this information.

Then my mother was a fantastic scientist… people all around the galaxies would come to her to look at things form every corner of the galaxy, she was invited to go to mission with some marines to Akuse but she never came back, a man from the alliance came to me and told me that they got wiped out by a thresher maw… that is one horrible way to go.

The alliance took me in and looked after me and trained me up until I was old enough to join, I can remember I did not want to be here the military, it has taken both my mother and father I did not want it to take me.

I remember when I changed my view on everything, I was 16 not to long in fact, a disaster happen on Eden Prime the people there died form something… I wasn’t really sure of what it was but I saw the reports in which I had to break into the office of my commander to hack into the computer, come on what kind of password is ALLIANCE12345, I saw that a man named Shepard a crew man of the Normandy went there and witnessed and survived whatever was down there then two words that stood out at me form the report was Reaper and Protheans, to me they were legends and story’s my mother use to tell me about in bed, yes I know they are not normal stories for a child I loved them, that was when I decided that I was needed at help defend Earth…in case they were real.

Jack out

Tangled In A Web?!

Don’t worry Marvel I have your solution!

Okay! it is still rumours that Spider-Man might still join the MCU! yet I have a plan on how to include a Spider-Man (Sometimes I think to myself…I think about this stuff way to much!)

As you just read, I said a Spider-Man not Peter Parker! I have nothing against Peter or Andrew Garfield, I think he is a great choice for Spider-man (just not that in a good film)

To suit this MCU, If (still a big IF mind!) Marvel get the Spider-man rights back or just get a three deal film or something! they should have the Miles Morales version the the web slinger, as I said in my last post! (Go and read it! believe me it’s a good read!)

With Miles, they can introduce Spider-man without having the questions: Where was he in avengers and the Marvel events? here is where I explain how they can introduce him to the MCU!

First we start by introducing Miles’s parents through a flashback, his father a S.H.I.E.L.D scientist and then his mother (which she can also be working for S.H.I.E.L.D) in New York.

Miles gets picked up from school by his mother where they go to the father who is finishing up work, while they are going to the father the alien invasion of New York happens, which is the events of Avengers, this would explain why we wasn’t helping out the Avengers because he did not have his powers yet!

The attack is happening, everything is mayhem and chaos! Miles is with his mother trying to get to safety, they find some where to hide until someone comes to rescue them and the other group of people they found shelter with.

To be Spider-man a family member has to die! it is the law! this part of the story is were this would happen Miles mother, who could be a S.H.I.E.L.D agent or not? sacrifices her self to insure the safety of her son and the group of people. This can be done through her fighting off the Chatiri ( Aw that is so spelt wrong!) or stopping rubble falling on them.

Through this the group are safe on Miles is devastated! they are safe and the Avengers are victorious! once time is passed and New York is rebuilding and so is Miles. Miles is getting use to life in a new school and life with him and his father.

This is where I would introduce Miles uncle! he is shady and a criminal but he loves his family, he is there to help his brother rise Miles after the death of his wife.

After the alien invasion of New York, S.H.I.E.L.D are looking into new ways to defend Earth from alien threats, this is done by inventing new weapons, this would introduce Miles’s father working on the animal genetics,that would give Miles his spider powers! unknown to Miles’s father Hydra are behind these experiments, With this they could link it the the TV show agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, where they can have the head of Hydra (Hydra replacing Oscorp in this universe) talking to Miles’s father or having a Captain America big bad discussing progress.

Once this is introduced the story Miles’s father is spending to much time at his work, this leaves Miles spending a lot of time with his uncle (This time period is when school is out for the summer). This leads up to his uncle and father getting into an argument about Miles, with his uncle explaining he needs his father and so on. This argument gives the uncle information of a valuable item at the lab ( this could be the metal that is used to build Caps shield or even another plot device or Easter egg, I will let you decide that one!)

The uncle breaks into the lab (by using his brothers passes) to get this item but obviously something goes wrong! stuff break or he gets into a tussle that breaks stuff or something like that! while this is happening an escaped spider (see we are getting to the spider bit now!) makes his/her way into the uncles bag, unknown to the uncle he picks up the item and the bag and leaves.

With Miles’s father is at work getting blamed for the break in, Miles is spending more time with his uncle, when his uncle leaves the room to get a food for the both of them Miles noses around, at this point the spider comes out of the bag and feels threatened, this leads to the “radioactive” spider biting Miles on the hand!

This obviously this hurts Miles, the spider falls and runs off never to be seen again (maybe?) Miles start to have a fit because of the bite, his uncle comes back into the room.

Next thing we know is that Miles wakes up in the hospital to his uncle and father arguing, they tell him everything is fine and he is in good health.

Time passes Miles’s father got fired after being blamed for the robbery and Miles starts to notice something is off and he is feeling weird, in school his powers start to reveal their self ( just like the Sam Remi’s film).

News breaks that Hydra has taken over S.H,I.E.L.D, this leads to the events of Captain America 2. This leads to Hydra coming after Miles’s father as he knows secrets and has no loyalty to Hydra. This makes Miles use his powers to defend his father and uncle (without them knowing of course).

Next up is what happens in Age of Ultron! as I don’t know what happens i am just going to say that after the event Miles declares that he will not let what happened to him ( him losing his mother in a super hero event) happen to anyone else and decides to use his power for the greater good and start to protect New York as a masked vigilante named Spider-man! (He hides his identity to protect his family and to get Hydra away from him)

This is what I think should happen IF Marvel get Spidey back!

Hey Marvel you going to give a job yet!!??

Let me know what you think and thanks for reading and please share to friends or some random guy on the street!

Caught in the cast…

Recently I made a Tweet (By the way I am worth the follow) about True Detective and who I thought should be cast in season three. I had great feedback on my suggestions.

Wordpress- karl urban Wordpress- Sam Rockwell

Karl Urban and Sam Rockwell! I thought these two mixed with the grit of the True Detective world would be a really good match. There could be many options to play with these actors, Urban could be a family man with a dark side? or Rockwell could play anything because he can actually play anything! (Because he is just a great actor).

This got me thinking about other casting choices I would pick for films. One that got me really excited is the rumour going around that Marvel wants to bring in Spider-man into the MCU. Even though I like Andrew Garfield as Spider-man it just wouldn’t make sense that his Spider-man fits into the Marvel universe? so a theory circling the internet recently is that IF! (that is a big if) Spider-man joins the Avengers line up it would be the Miles Morales incarnation of the web slinger.

Spider-Man-to-Pass-Torch-to-Miles-Morales

As you can see this version of spider man is different, this rumour got me thinking who would be good to play Miles, I thought this over in a geek way and because of my loyalty to Community I couldn’t look past Donald Glover

Donald Glover spider-man

To be honest with you! I think this would be a great casting choice! (defiantly over Jaden Smith!) this is were Glover could flex his acting muscles, this will also let him keep his quirky humour that will suit the spider man character!

I know I properly thinking way to much about this kind of thing! but hey! it’s fun too speculate right? like everyone is talking about who should play Doctor Strange since Joaquin Phoenix negotiations are over.

Personally I would just love to see Benedict Cumberbatch in the Marvel universe playing the sorcerer supreme but this rumour has died down lately, with this Ethan Hawke has been mentioned and I totally agree, everything I have seen him in, he has but in a good performance. Wordpress- Ethan Hawke

With all the rumours about who is going to be part of the Marvel Universe, I decided to think of the actors and to play these parts

First one would be Captain Marvel she has been mentioned recently, I then put two and two together and got Sarah Michelle Gellar, Since Joss Whedon is all over the MCU and he likes to use people he knows… I thought Sarah Michelle Gellar could be Captain Marvel.

00adb6e8f9a12273_SarahMichelle_Gellar.xxxlarge_2captain_marvel___legacy_by_witchysaint-d4vtkw0

Now this is just my thoughts! obviously this is not true and are many issues to think of is SMG to old to play captain marvel? would they want to do with someone younger? this all depends on the people that get paid to make these decisions. If they do want to go with a younger actress then my I suggest a kick ass Emily Blunt??

With other mentions of Wonder Man (Maybe he is the one that could die, cause he does a lot) I know it is an easy choice to cast Sean Bean to be cast as wonder man cause he also died a lot! but I think again based the ages of the character Clive Owen could be a decent choice to play Wonder man?

wonder_man_dammit__color_comp__by_dharmajon-d6rqzuz Wordpress- clive owen

Iron Fist is not the first super hero to pop in your head when it comes to marvel but he apparently he is going to be in the Netfilx gang with Daredevil and Luke Cage, maybe the popular Charlie Hunnam could take a shot at playing a super hero as his work on TV has been great, or maybe he is becoming to big to play this type of hero? who knows?

Iron-Fist-(Earth-1610) MV5BMjE5NjE5Mzk2MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODI5MDE1Ng@@._V1._SY209_CR4,0,140,209_

Next I am going to talk about one of my new favourite super heroes…Black Panther! at first I turned to one of favourite actors to play him and that would be Idris Elba because he already can do and African accent due to his work on Mandela, I highly doubt this would happen though to my disappoint. So I was thinking who can hold a film and do a great job at it? Chiwetel Ejiofor that’s who! his work on 12 years a slave has great!, this had lead me to think he can do a great job at playing the king Wakanda!

Sampling Collecting Collectables Part 2: The beginning

 

  1. COLLECTERS SHOP.DAY 

Camera pans around Milton Myrtle’s collector’s shop. 

Milton (VO) 

During my 25 years on this planet, I have been called many things, Geek, Nerd on one occasion Poindexer and many other very rude names…but now I am know as one of the biggest players in the collector’s world. 

Milton is standing at a cabinet, Milton is arranging vintage superhero figures. The shop bell rings. 

Milton  

Hello? 

Milton looks up. 

 

Milton  

(Excited)

Ow hey Doreen! 

Milton walks up to the counter. 

Doreen 

Hey Milton!… have the Dragon Force collectables arrived? 

Milton 

You know me I can get anything just for you! 

Milton smiles at Doreen. Milton pops below the counter, ruffling noises are made, Milton pops back up. 

Milton  

Here you go Miss Donnelly!  

 

Milton hands statue figure wrapped in bubble wrap to Doreen

Doreen 

Thank you sooo much Milton you’re the best! I will be back soon, goodbye 

Doreen leaves the shop, Milton stares at Doreen leaving. 

Milton (VO) 

If only I could get the confidence to ask her to a dungeons and dragons night! … even I did I could not take the rejection… it will be like firefly all over again! 

Wilbur (OS)

Milton?  

Milton continues to stare blankly at the door. 

Wilbur (OS)

Milton? 

Milton turns to look at Wilbur, Milton jumps in surprise. 

Milton 

You scared me Wilbur 

Wilbur 

Sorry 

Milton  

How long you been here? 

Wilbur 

Since twelve  

Milton looks at his watch. 

Milton 

You been here for three hours? 

Wilbur 

You know I like your comics 

Milton  

Yeah… without you I will be out of business. 

Wilbur 

That would be a huge loss, where would I get my comics? 

Milton 

Online? Other shops? 

Wilbur  

That wouldn’t satisfy me 

Milton 

(Confused) 

Ok? 

Wilbur 

I will take these please. 

Wilbur places comics on the counter. Milton scans the comics. 

Wilbur  

You seen what’s happening on twitter? 

Milton 

No I haven’t had a chance to check my twitter today, what is happening? 

Wilbur  

Dragon Force have announced that they lost the ‘Thy Dragon’ 

Milton drops the comics in shock. 

Wilbur 

Arggh you dropped first editions! 

Milton 

(Curious)

‘Thy Dragon’? are you sure? 

Wilbur 

(Panic)

Pick them up! Pick them up! 

Milton 

‘Thy Dragon’! 

Wilbur 

Pick up the darn comics! 

Milton picks up the comics, Milton places them on the counter. 

Milton 

Sorry! … can you tell me now?

Wilbur 

Sorry for cursing…‘Thy Dragon’ is lost. 

Milton 

 That’s not possible 

Wilbur 

According to Twitter a mysterious collector has it and he is willing to trade it. 

Milton 

(Overly Dramatic)  

He holds the key to war! 

Wilbur

(Confused) 

What? 

Milton 

Think about it?… everyone loves Dragon Force! 

Wilbur 

What’s ‘Thy Dragon’ got to do anything? 

Milton 

I thought it was legend… a myth made by producers to get fans excited and scared… they only ever made one dragon out of all the series… one to rule them all. 

Wilbur 

I am guessing that is bad? 

Milton 

(Overly Dramatic) 

Ow it’s bad! This mysterious collector is going to cause havoc and misery among our people! 

Wilbur 

How come? 

Milton  

(Overly Dramatic) 

All the gangs are going to want ‘Thy Dragon’… by any means. 

Wilbur 

That is horrible there will be bloodshed  

Milton 

(Overly Dramatic) 

Some bruises and scrams will be dealt yes, we have to stop this! 

Wilbur  

Can we wait till tomorrow… my mother is cooking me food and she won’t leave me eat it in the basement any more 

Milton  

Ok… that’s fair enough. 

  1. INT. MILTON’S FLAT.NIGHT 

Milton is at a table packing a bag. On the table is a board with dice along with cards and supplies. Milton picks up his mobile, Milton dials a number. 

Milton  

(Overly Dramatic) 

Mother… I won’t be calling for a while…because I am going on a unexpected journey… it should take about three hours, not six or even twelve … and if it is extended it may be over fifth teen… yes it may be dangerous… what am I doing? Something really important!… I am going to find ‘Thy Dragon’ and stop chaos… arggh it’s something silly mother… it’s serious…before I go…………… I love you mother.

36. INT. MOTEL ROOM. NIGHT

Milton and Wilbur enter the motel room, the room has two single beds, Wilbur collapses onto the bed.

Wilbur

This is so comfy, Milton you should try it

Milton collapses onto the bed.

Wilbur

What you think?

Milton

It’s the nicest place I have rested for the last couple of days.

Milton and Wilbur lay on the beds in silence for a minute, with a faint shower noise for the other room.

Milton

Thin walls mind

Wilbur and Milton lay there in silence again, still with the shower noise faint in the background, a loud scream is heard from the other room, the Pyscho screeching noise is played, Milton jumps.

Milton

What the hell is that?

Wilbur

Don’t worry it was just my phone

Milton lays back down.

Milton

You scared me then Wilbur

Wilbur

Sorry… it was just my mother checking on me

Wilbur is playing with his phone and Milton is laying in silence again with the same shower noise faint in the background. there is a knock on the door.

Milton

Wonder who that is

Wilbur

I don’t know… I will answer it.

Wilbur gets up off the bed and walks towards the door, Wilbur opens the door. The door opening reveals Barry standing in the corridor, Barry is a bit wet and his holding a plastic bag with a little bit of red liquid on the bag.

Wilbur
