Cool, somebody must have read the fanflick thread awhile back. I'll sign up for that, just as long as the boss lets me use all of works kit to make it!

Curious to find out which stories are to be done.
Better set your phaser to stun.

Easy one to do would be the Dr Dibworthy(?) one where he suddenly realsies how to time travel only to be visited by future incarnations of himself either trying to stop or encourage him - all you'd need was an old man, some false beards and a study.....and maybe the ability to film multiple images of said old man...DOH!

The second one - where he accidentally erases all space and time before tiffin - would probably be easier.

Sounds like a good way to annoy Alan Moore, though.

 Must get Tharg to print Godzilla v Evel Kneivel, that way my entry would already be complete. Go on Mighty One its filmed in authentic String-o-vision, and those bastards at Cannes seem to be under the elitist notion its a "piece of crap you made in your lunch hour" coem on I could be the next Danny Cannon.
Oh right. Sorry.

My genius future shock 'The Man Who Did Not Move' would be perfect if only Tharg would take it:

S
P
O
I
L
E
R

S
P
A
C
E
.
.
.
.





There's a man, right?
And - he doesn't move.

The winnings are mine, I can feel it.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

Animation would suit this very well. Am I right?!

Ifound it sort of amusing, though of course no one would be seen dead in Seattle wearing a Plaid shirt or worshipping Kurt Kobain these days.

Do you think the Hawking mobile has a turbo boost so he can escape?
