I am going to shoot a League of Legends trailer and use it to pitch to movie studios in Hollywood. I am going to turn LOL into a feature film.

This is not an animation. I would be using real actors. There will be FX, CGI etc.

Please email premieringsoon@gmail.com and let me know who are the champions you would like to see in this trailer and why.

This is my Kickstarter preview link:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...token=7e27416d

It is not live yet because I would like to see if is any interest in the League of Legends Movie before I start raising fund.

Let me know what you guys think?

Kind Regards,

... Do you have the rights to do such a thing?

I mean, it's a damn cool idea, but when it comes to fan-made stuff, I think Riot might draw the line somewhere before Hollywood. >.>

I emailed them but the reply is very generic.

If there are enough support in the LOL community, it will happen.
So far, I do not see many interests.

Since it's a fan made video, it sounds feasible. I'd love to see it happen!

The only iffy part is the kickstarter. You're basically requiring users to fund $50k just to produce a trailer. While I'm impressed by the $0 budget sample you posted up, it doesn't prove you can actually make a high quality hollywood-style trailer, so I'm doubtful whether people will actually spend $$ for this.

As for the trailer, imo it's cheesy, which I guess is expected for something w/ no budget, but it's still pretty cool, and I can tell you're pretty serious about this. There were cut-edits literally every 3 seconds though - how many takes did you have to do? o,o

Honestly I'd put up like, $1-5 to help out, just to see it happen, but that's about it since I'm just a poor college student w/ a mediocre job.

Thanks! I was still thinking...
I was also posting on General Discussion and Off Topic. People there are nasty and discouraging...
I wished everybody would just tell me the champions they want to see in the trailer.

I think where you went wrong is claiming that the trailer will be pitched to hollywood for a serious proposal, then loading up a sample work that, while pretty impressive for a $0 budget trailer, isn't even close to "Hollywood" standards. Almost everyone will laugh at that idea, because it's ridiculous. If it was a fan-made nonprofit movie that would be distributed on youtube, then people would be more receptive.

It really gives people the impression that you're a bit delusional, but the truth of it is, making good movies is extremely hard and only you can decide for yourself whether you're willing to put in the dedication and craft to become truly good at what you want to do (I'm talking about years to decades).

The sample trailer you posted is good if you're talking about free, "hobby'ish" stuff, but if you charged for it, then people will suddenly think it's horrible. It's basically analogous to charging for fanfics, or asking for a fanfic to be published in bookstores.

To do something like LOL, it is no longer hobb-ish fan based. To do it right I will need FX makeup, costume designers, CGI etc. I know what it takes to make a good movie. Story, budget equipment and people.

Ok. Cool. Are you like one of the other "lets start a LoL movie" dudes? I'm gunna have to ask what you've got. Degrees, diplomas, the like. Because your role in the directing of that trailer would not be comparable to anything made by Hollywood. And you can't expect to say that without a budget thing as an excuse. If you were serious, you would have at least spent some money, from 100 to 1000 to give us a preview. Look, that trailer, kudo's to you. But that's not a trailer. A trailer is supposed to spark some one's attention. I got bored after the two guys walked out of the car.

The lighting in that? It'll pass in my book. The fact that you were not using a tripod at least? Not so much. Also, you made the cuts between the scenes too long in between, and at shoddy places. Not how a trailer looks. I've seen people make better trailers with toys, rather than actual "actors".

I'm gonna say that you don't know a thing about making movies, because what you request is not nearly enough. Don't bore me with details about hiring other people, what are you gunna pay 'em?

You've gotta consider, people with the capability to pay you, will be much smarter than the average 10 year old that gets impressed by everything. And those ten year olds don't have the money to pay.

I agree with everything stated above.
I also believe that $50,000 for a trailer is insane. There have been feature length films that have been made with far less of a budge. Paranormal Activity had a $15,000 budget. I do not know how much experience you have had in the film industry but I honestly do not feel like you have had any. You probably could find film students who want to make something for their portfolios and recruit them to make a trailer which would cost little to nothing.
