Earth's Elite (Echo Fleet) - How It All Began
« on: November 09, 2013, 01:49:54 am »

As I mentioned to the senior staff, after recovering from a damn annoying computer crash I have lost the majority of the files I had prepared for this, however, this won't stop us.  When we have enough members we will start filming, I will be keeping the plan secret until filming actually starts, our teaser opening sequence/launch can be seen here http://www.livestream.com/earthelite.  A promo will be released soon, hopefully.  I'm about to start work on it. I'm hoping it will hint to the ending, without giving anything away.....if that's possible.

This will be a rolling fleet event, meaning the event may span multiple weeks/months when recording has begun, it also means it's for the entire fleet to participate in, you don't have to be a member of the role-play department, or even be able to act (god knows I can't), just adds to the fun and should make a pretty good gag reel.  You can also help out behind the scenes, filming, editing, special effects, etc.

This will be nothing like a normal RP.  An RP starts and we continue until the end, if we make mistakes we make mistakes, plus they're not really mistakes as we're playing a character live and everyone makes mistakes, I'm sure starfleet officers have randomly started having a conversation in the middle of a battle......maybe not.  Anyway, we will be acting as though we are really on a filming set, the server will this virtual set and our characters, well, us.  We will have a director (me) etc and we will record it scene by scene just like a film or episode would really be recorded, it will all then be editted together and we'll have a premiere night where we'll all watch the finished product through, live, together.  Hopefully everyone involved will be able to participate in the premiere, it will be held on TS at some point once done.

I will be posting updates about this here as they come in.  You can email me on callumjackson@earthelite.co.uk if you wish to participate, at the moment we're just collecting names on who is interested, there is no confirmed start date for this, but I doubt it will be this year now, most likely early 2014.

I will be playing the USS Impenetrable's Commanding Officer (promoted from Executive Officer during episode) - Captain James Roberts.  I will also be acting as the director.

Positions that we really need are (IC):
XO
Helm
Ops
Engineering
Medical
Tactical

And OOC:
Executive Director
Editting team
Special Effects team
Camera Team

OOC: How it all began isn't and won't be a creative writing mission, as I said before we'll be filming it on our server, but I thought I would write the opening scene how I think it should happen in a creative writing way.

=/\=U....??????......?????=/\= "Get them back now!" the female on watch shouted to the ops officer "Trying Ma'am" the officer replied.
"Try again"
=/\=This is starfleet command calling whatever ship just attempted to hail us, please repeat your message=/\=
=/\=Starfleet Command I'm Captain Saunders of the Federation Starship Ark Royal, we need immediate assistance, we're on the border of the Beta Quadrant, we think=/\=
The commodore looked around =/\=Captain, did you say, Ark Royal??=/\= the commodore asked
=/\=I did, yes, why??=/\=
"Wake the Admiral" the commodore ordered to a nearby Ensign.

=/\=Ark Royal, what is the nature of your emergency??=/\=
=/\=We...we....well, I'm not quite sure how it happened, but we've lost primary power, our core is offline and there doesn't appear to be any response from any other Federation Vessels=/\=
=/\=Ark Royal, we can't seem to confirm your location, what was your last known position??=/\=
...
There was no response
=/\=Ark Royal please respond=/\=
"Ma'am, I've lost her signal"

The turbo lift doors swooshed opened as a disgruntled Vice-Admiral stepped off "Report" Callum said.
"Sir, we've just received a distress call from the Ark Royal, we've lost her signal and can't raise her.  Exact position unknown, all we know is she could be somewhere along the border of the Beta Quadrant"

Callum moved over to the center console and looked at the little information they had "I leave Captain Saunders in command for one week and look what she's gone and done" Callum said.
=/\=Captain Roberts, please report to the Impenetrable, you're needed for an urgent mission.  I'm granting you a field promotion to her CO, we'll celebrate when you return, leave when ready=/\= Callum Ordered.

I'd like to start recruiting for this.

I'll be playing Myself & Captain Roberts.  All other positions listed above are open, there wont be a 'script' script, but we will help you out with lines and what you need to say to keep the story on topic, everything else, is your choice.

I recall signing up as XO to this!
I'd like to retain that position in RP and perhaps take Producer or DOP and I can also cover sound if needed on the RL side.

Scott, now you mention it I think you did.  The XO position is yours.

Executive Director, is also yours if you want it.  Editing, I still need to figure out if there is a way for multiple people to work on one project some how without massive amounts of uploading/downloading.

Special Effects & Camera, I could do with a couple of helpers, especially with the camera side when I'm in a scene.

SFX, I assume you'll need an admin then :p up for that if needed
Executive director sounds good. Do we need a producer or are we including that in this role?

@Shoot, you can't hold two positions that are on the same vessel, as you may end up having to play two characters at the same time.

@Scott, we'll be including it in the directors roles.
