So i have had a little think about what we can do for the story of our film. Not all of them are great but its just the beginning so we can go from there and refine the story until it sounds good.
The first story is very similar to King Kong.
Story Idea 1:
Astronauts go up to Mars to do research or something like that. After a couple of hours of being there, strange things start to happen and they keep thinking they keep seeing something. Things start to move on their own. Then one of the crew gets attacked by the invisible blob. But the rest of crew cant see the blob. It carries on like this killing members of the crew until there are only two left.
By this time they have guessed that whatever is doing this is invisible, the two remaining crew members try a plan to capture the blob. They hide above a crevice and when they hear the blob coming, throw mars dust at it. Showing its overall size and so they can capture it without too much difficulty. One of the astronauts ends up dying, leaving only one left.
The lone astronaut brings the blob back, claiming he has found a magnificent discovery. But when he goes to show the blob to the world, in like a massive show or something. The blob manages to escape into the city and start causing mayhem, killing and destroying everything it sees.
Story Idea 2:
BEGINNING: The scene opens with the camera looking through the eyes of the blob at an unsuspecting victim. Waiting in the darkness to attack, and then in one swift movement smothers the guy. (Then the story cuts away to like a news bulletin about people who are on their own at night keep coming up dead). Every body that is found is covered in slime and stiff as a plank of wood.
MIDDLE: Two blubbering cops are put on the case. And after lots of mistakes and mishaps stubble across a story about a meteorite hitting earth, so they go to the science lab to find out more. And discover some of the slime that has bee found at the murder scenes. After telling their discoveries to the police captain, nobody believes them. They carry on with the search and see a pattern of the murders. So they stake out and witness a murder.
End: When the blob attacks, it becomes visible for a few minutes. In this time they pursue it. By accident one of the officers trips and spills something over the blob, so that they can always see it. Eventually they capture the blob. But its only after its killed like a thousand people or something.
Story Idea 3:
Similar to District 9 in a way. And transformers because of the humans and machines working together. More of a spoof.
After a planet collides with earth, they are attached through the force of gravity of earth, not touching, but always close rotating the Sun together. The other planet is full of monsters, with there being like a shuttle service that allows monsters and people to live in harmony.
One day both planets are invaded by aliens who want to take over the planets and use them for total universe control. However during the time connected the two planets formed a special force that are called upon when emergencies arise. They are the best of the monsters and humans. Their leader is the blob, the group is a six man team. They are given orders to infiltrate the aliens planet and sabotage their plans for universe domination.
The group make a lot of mistakes, and blow up things for unnecessary reasons. But they finally get into the alien headquarters and destroy their main leaders, which brings down their entire empire. The soldiers return to a heros welcome and so on.
Story Idea 4:
This is sort of like Kung Fu Panda and The Karate Kid
The story is on a planet full of monsters, who are all really scary and evil. But a baby monster is born to the slimy blob family. But he is very different, because he is invisible except his eyes. And his family aren't happy, not only is he invisible but he isn't even scary. Throughout school he gets bullied and teased.
He befriends an old Cyclopes during his teenage years, who gives him encouragement and advice. He almost becomes his trainer if you want. Practicing to scare everyday after school. Making sure he doesn't get bullied. He also finds that when he gets himself really angry he becomes a flaming red colour for a few seconds. There is an annual scaring competition, where all of the scariest characters try to out scare a panel of judges to become the scariest monster on the planet.
He flies through the rounds by impressing the judges with different scare techniques. Until reaching the final, where he has to face his former school bully. Who is the scariest monster on the planet for the past three years. After a long battle, he uses his flaming red blob of a body to win the competition. Finally proving everyone wrong.
All of these stories were quick ideas, so whatever you guys have im sure will be better. But at least we have a footing on where we can focus our ideas or where to put more effort in.
