Future/Sci-Fi/Dystopian Feature Film

So, on Christian Filmmakers.org, Dallas Lammiman  presented this project in the Art forum. I decided to throw my hat in the ring.

The idea is a futuristic, winter dystopia. No budget, no crew, and 6 months to make it. Exciting.

Here are a couple pieces I drew up. More will follow...

A civilian of this bleak future state.


An Enforcer. I thought that most of the Enforcers would be lightly armed due to their extra clothing. They would want something that allowed them to remain dexterous and agile.


An off duty Enforcer enjoying a cup of... what do they drink the future? (he also looks like a Russian sailor from the early 1900s, but don't tell anybody).

A heavily armed Enforcer. Rather the opposite of the light-armed Enforcer.
A lightly-armed Enforcer running... and jumping... over something. An invisible something. (Actually I was too lazy to draw what he was jumping over).


I did all these with pen on copy paper, then scanned and printed doubles. I did this because when I would draw over them with my gray-scale markers (Prismacolor), they would cause the ink to bleed. By making duplicates with our laser printer, I had a dry, clean surface to color over. Worked out okay. 

These of course are mine only, but I think I might post some of the other artists' work as we go along (that is, if they let me). 
I am rather excited about this project, and am anxious to see where it goes. There's bound to be some other crazy guys who are looking for something to show-case their skills. 
We'll see what happens. I'll be posting more on this topic.

P.S. A big thank you to Dallas Lammiman for allowing me to post about this project.

Hey John, if you need help, just ask. I have a thing or two stuffed in my hat. The idea seems intriguing.
