Yes, yes I know I’m supposed to be reporting on LEGO news, but since there doesn’t seem to be any at the moment I figured I’d do something a bit different and share with you guys a little behind the scenes memorabilia.
Waaaaaaaaayyy back in the mists of late 2008, I was at the helm of the sinking ship also known as my Dell laptop. I was about to go on holiday and my laptop was crashing on me roughly every hour. As I sat frustrated and upset before my keyboard, an e-mail suddenly appeared in my inbox.
I opened the e-mail and discovered it had come from my good friend LegoSantaMoss, one of the first users to subscribe to me when I started making brickfilms during the summer. The e-mail was asking me whether I wanted to write a script for his new Clone Wars series.
In a tribute to just how desperate I was to let my creative juices flow, I accepted, before realising I had no story and no idea what I was going to do. I didn’t foster the same hatred for the Star Wars prequels or the Clone Wars series I do now, otherwise I would’ve thought about the undertaking a bit more seriously.
Instead I treated it as a bit of fun and in the hour before my computer crashed I banged out probably the worst script I’ve written in my entire career and sent it off. Of course I wasn’t aware just how bad the script was at the time. All I knew was it got accepted. It wasn’t until 2009 I was viewing the script in action, by which time I began to realise just how pitiful it was.
Now I’ve come to accept the atrocity it is and can laugh about it. After all, I was only 15 at the time. I’ve come on in leaps and bounds since then (at least I hope so, though given that dreaful cliche I just used I don’t have much hope).
So here, for your amusement, genuine or derogatory, is the first script I ever wrote for LegoSantaMoss studios:

Also, if you guys wanna see some of the many scripts that went unproduced from that Clone Wars series, just says so in the comments below.
