Story, Final Draft

The Sentient


OPEN YOUR EYES

INT: HUMANOID GENERATOR ROOM.

The room contains three upright power charging stations for
the humanoid robots. There is an operating table covered
with blood towards one of the corners of the room. Generic
equipment that a person would find in a lab is seen.
In the centre of the black screen, a white dot appears and a
straight line shoots from both left and right side of the
dot. The lines reach the end of the screen and proceed to
elongate making the entire screen bright white. The white
screen eventually dims.

(From perspective/ eyes of of Ro8ot)
Ro8ot cannot see far as everything at a distance appears
blurry.

Ro8ot lifts his hands and looks at them. He blinks twice
while doing this. He looks at both sides of hands and flexes
his fingers slightly.

He takes a step forward and we hear loud thuds on the floor
(indicating his weight). He walks in front of a rectangular
pillar in the room. The pillar has a LCD screen with 3 news
paper article images flashing (2 seconds each) in loop.

The first newspaper article says ELIXIR IN MIT: IMMORTALITY
DISCOVERED. The second news paper article says MIT HEAD
ARRESTED FOR LIVE NEUROLOGICAL HUMAN TRIALS. The third news
paper article says MIT LEAD SCIENTIST ESCAPES FROM MAXIMUM
SECURITY PRISON.

Ro8ot takes a step back. Turns to the left and we see a
blurry image of a big metal man in the reflection of a large
glass wall. We see a computer screen kept on a desk in front
of the glass wall. Ro8ot bends down.
The screen reads:

FILE: SENTIENCE
PRIMARY CORTEX: HOMO SAPIEN
TERMINAL CORTEX: R8
TRANSFER:PRIMARY CORTEX BRAIN + AUTONOMIC SYSTEM TO MODEL
R8.

We see a digitized picture of a human brain (with different
parts of the brain lighting up) and a digitized robotic body
connected by a bridge that has information streaming from
the brain to the robotic body.

2.
RO8OT
(Softly whispered)
Noooo!

Change of perspective: We now see things from third
perspective. We see the side profile of Ro8otís face looking
at the screen.

The screen blinks once and changes to the side profile of
the Mad Scientistís face.

THE HEART OF DARKNESS

INT: MAD SCIENTIST LAB.

The Lab has a lot of equipment,
wires, pipes and spare parts of robots lying around. There
is blood on the mad scientistís lab coat and also around the
place emphasizing his scientific prowess and work in both
biological and technological sciences.
The mad scientist is looking through the microscope. He
moves a bit back and stands up. A computerized voice says,
DNA PARENT STRAND FRAGMENTED. The mad scientist gets
irritated and angrily grunts. He walks towards the door at
the south end of the room. He walks through a door (while
walking, we hear a female computerized voice say WELCOME
DR.VON IGORISH).
He enters the HUMANOID GENERATOR ROOM and sees the Ro8ot
standing away from the power cell, a little disoriented but
slowly coming to its senses. He gets very angry and starts
jumping up and down like a lunatic with his finger pointed
at Ro8ot.
MAD SCIENTIST
GET HIM!
2 big, bulky and clumsy robots appear from behind the
scientist and start running towards the Ro8ot.

RUN

The Ro8ot immediately navigates the room (using X ray vision
and plots a course to evade the security robots and escape
from the laboratory.
Switch to perspective of Ro8ot. We see him beginning to move
(noted by jerky camera motion for 2 seconds). A bar appears
on the arm of the robot saying...Low Battery. We see a
depleted cell with a single red bar flashing.

3.

DOA

The Mad Scientist pulls out a remote control from his lab
coat and pushes a button. The camera zooms out to a third
room. The room starts with a long passage and at the end is
an elevator shaft. A metal shutter starts dropping down
slowly indicating the elevator shaft will be blocked and no
transportation out of the Mad Scientistís lab will be
possible.

NOTE: All this happens while the security robots are chasing
Ro8ot. You will have to generate rooms or corridors to show
the chase sequence and cut between the chase and visuals of
the shutter closing just once to create an air of tension.

FOLLOW ME

The Ro8ot looks back while running and notices the two
clumsy security bots still chasing him (they destroy stuff
and tumble over things).

He turns around and raises his right hand at them. The right
hand turns deep blue and a surge/ wave of energy is seen
starting from his feet and moving up all through his body
into his right arm. A semi transparent blue blast is
released from his right hand.

This is seen in a side scroll point of view. The blast moves
from Ro8otís hand and travels across the screen (the screen
moves from right to left). The blue blast hits the first
security robot who flies and hits the second and both end up
in a heap on the floor. NOTE: It would be recommended to
show the blast in slow motion when it is launched out of the
hand and then in double speed as it hits the robots and
destroys them.

THE END IS NEAR

Immediately after the security robots land in a heap, the
perspective switches to Ro8otís vision and we see the energy
bar rapidly flashing indicating his battery is nearly dead
(because he used the energy blast).

RESOLVE

Ro8ot runs fast and is just a few steps away from the
elevator. Switch to first perspective of Ro8ot. The screen
becomes dull and starts blinking (as if eye lids were
closing). Ro8ot nearly reaches the elevator shaft (the
shutter is nearly down) when the whole screen becomes black.

4.

We hear the following.
MAD SCIENTIST
Bob can run! Hehehahahah!

THE END






Good Luck to everyone having entered the challenge!

hey guys i am working on the main robot design and i got amazing idea in it i wil model it and show i to u guys soon.

i thought that its like one scientist making the robot so thought of it like full of wires around not that clean and not much resources.

i like brandon's idea for it but its too high tech and alone a scientist cant make one so thought of a better idea as i would be mixing ideas from I-Robot, Iron Man and tranformers

it's a second time I see some models from free collections that dust everywhere around net...it's just depressing, from a creative point of view. This model - http://www.richardjohnsmith.co.uk/marine.htm is also somewhere around here, I'm not sure that Richard S. would appreciate that.
I think it would be pity if you'll produce a movie with a good story, but after you'll find out that there are turbosquid models...
Bottom line is CGI industry guys know CGI industry.

I dnt get the point of u showing the marine by richard smith wer does that come in relation to our story at any point?

and about the robot is it a fault of taking tht idea and using it in this story?

If its inspired from that idea then is it a crime or wat.

Thnx for telling us this really appreciate it b'coz i have taken this idae from that model and mixed it up with my own elements.

If taking inspiration from any idea is wrong then we would change the whole concept of it.

richard smith's model was not in your b-movie thread, somewhere here in this forum I've seen it.

I don't suggest you do anything if you feel strong about your characters. It's seems only lazy and unprofessional use TS models. If I were in your shoes - I'd ask myself what would James Cameron do?! :)

Even the most strange, unusual desing of your own is more at value than 3d makeover robot.

Hope that you now see things differently :)

Anton ,
Thank you for the tip . And we agree . An unusual design is better than a make over robot.
Which is why we are redesigning the robot concept again and hopefully we get it better.
We appreciate you checking our entry , as beginners we are very thankful for any help we get . :)

Based on the comment by Anton I find there is no way i can prove my innocence.

In fairness to my team mates I leave this group to be fair to my friends.

I feel disgusted though for the accusations on me, I know that I am not wrong in my way and I am truthful to myself. I am innocent in my way and if taking inspirational ideas from the google images is wrong and from a movie that inspires me a lot is wrong then I am wrong but if Mr. Anton thinks otherwise then I cant think of anything else.

But based on the accusations I realize that my participation to the team would affect the whole team and I dont want to be un-fair to them.

Well this is a decision I have taken and if I am people think I am true to myself I would be happy enough to join back but for now I would leave this group and have my friends continue the challenge and GOODLUCK to them.

And I am sorry if I have hurt anyone in any way.

In regards to what has transpired, my team and I have come to the decision that removing, Dilen and everything that he has modeled, from the challenge is the only way to move past the incident and continue our project without him.
We would like to apologize as none of us were aware of this until Anton pointed it out, and we would like to thank him because continuing with the model would have been unfair to all the other teams. We did not wish for such a thing to happen, and we do not wish to be shamed by the incident.
Removing Dilen from our team is a major set back as he was one of the key members of our team, but we will not give up and we hope that after this set back we will be able to get back on track and finish up on time.

Our sincerest apologies.

In light of what has happened, here's our new model for the survivor robot R080t.

Thanks Brandon for the model.
A final model will soon be published, as well as a test rig/calibration.

A very cartoony like layer that fits very well with the scientist's personality.

this looks cool! :) I like the composition of 3 vertical towers with connecting wires. and over all this scene looks clean and sympatetic.
