Shawfather Credits and Open Call

shawfather_logo_horizontal

Shawfather fans!

As previously discussed, I originally thought it would be nice to create a fanpost where Silver Screen and Rollers can post their ideas regarding plot development for the project. So anybody have any ideas they want to share?

Later, I figured: why not include fans of the project as characters in the story, beyond the "offscreen" references to the Filipino Mafia in Part I? In the middle of Part III, the Shawfather realizes the Lakers' Christmas Day debacle against the Heat points to a need for enhanced MOAT, so he decides to turn to sympathetic security consultants with military backgrounds, introducing Sarge Clemins, who (along with HotMama24) will debut in a future episode. Anybody else interested in a featured role?

The call is officially open! Look forward to hearing from you in the comments below. Feel free to bookmark this fanpost in the event you come up with an idea down the road. I'll periodically check here for updates.

But first, the legalese.

Disclaimers

It's unlikely everyone's material, including mine, will make it into production during The Shawfather's run (i.e. through the end of the current NBA season). Even the best ideas today may end up in the circular file depending on how real-life events play out that influence the storyline. In general, ideas may be slightly or greatly modified for production use.

As for characters in the story, there are so many interesting folks who are part of this online community, that whether you're expressly interested in a role or not, you might end up with a cameo or more. That's the price you pay for having a personality worth noticing. 

Now for the fun stuff!

Plot Treatments

  • The better your idea dovetails with the current storyline, and/or events unfolding throughout the NBA -- especially those pertaining to the Lakers -- the easier it will be to use in whole or in part.
  • Ideas that incorporate plot elements or quotes from the Godfather movies, or from other famous movies,  also may stand a better chance of being used. A good reference for movies SS&R members like and recognize is SoCalGal's "Rough Cut 7/2 - Favorite Movies".

Characters

  • If you're interested in being portrayed in The Shawfather, you'll need to pick a character from a well-known movie -- or pick a highly recognizable celebrity -- to portray you. Again, "Rough Cut 7/2 - Favorite Movies" may be helpful. 
  • In addition, the movie character or celebrity you choose should have lots of photos available online (close-ups as well as partial- and full-body shots): the greater variety of facial expressions and angles (e.g. frontal, profile; high and low as well as eye level) the better.
  • If you're a Lakers fan and choose a celebrity who's a recognized fan of a rival team, well, then that's not a good fit (see comments regarding Matt Damon in the cast credits below).
  • Pinoy SS&R members: please choose an available character from Katekyō Hitman Reborn!, or another manga/anime character whose look and feel complement Reborn! If you don't have a preference, or if online images are scarce for your preferred character, then I'll choose a character for you.
  • hotmama24 and Patch A.: please see the notes/questions in the credits and comments below that pertain to you. Look forward to your input!
  • Of course, the movie character or celebrity doesn't have to look like or otherwise be similar to you (feel free to think of him or her as an avatar).
