Here is script i have written.
My english is week so im sorry for mistakes and probably all form of it.
I attached also polish version for polish colleagues :wink:

Version EN

In times of 1974, in Poland Slask , many coal mines was shut down. Goverment system covered real truth , why they closed them. It was mistery until now. Here is version of events by few miners who was recognize as insane because this story seems to be unbelievable.

Blood mine.

500 meters under ground , screem filled out mine tunels. After removed huge piece of rock miners saw something different than coal wall wich they expected. They saw something more terryfing than worst nightmare. Huge flesh body, big as house,slippery and alfful like not any man or any animal. This thing was looked like viscera with consumed dead bodys. It was full of blisters, vains, teeth, tendons and big eyes. Miners could not belive what they saw. Worst was , this thing was alive and wanted to make contact with them. Miners like hipnotized, in beginning they wanted to run but curiosity won. It was big mistake, because they duty was for twenty four hours that day, and they families wasnt expect them too soon.

Next day early everything seemed to be normal. Coal mine from far was looking abandoned like always, only moving coal conveyors and coal dust was a sign that work is going in full steam. The previous day happening did change something. In exchange of coal , blood was comming from conveyor. Huge fontain of blood, wich looked like newly discovered oil well on wild west. Under main conveyor ,blood rain, where miners screamed like mad. They wasnt themseves anymore. Mutated miners, completely covered by blisters and worst, was eating each other and seemed to be happy for. Nobody knew what was next. That was last picture remembered by the peaople who told me this storry. We can have only hope that this terrible thing was destoyed for ever .


Version PL

W 1974 roku w Polsce na Ślasku wiele kopalni węgla zamknięto. Z racji ówczesnego systemu nigdy niepoznano prawdy, dlaczego je zamnknięto. Oto wersja kilku górników, których uznano za niepoczytalnych ponieważ z pozoru historia wydaje sie niemożliwa.

Kopalnia krwi.

500 metrów pod ziemią rozległy sie głosy przerażenia. Po usunieciu grubej warstwy skały ku zdziwieniu górników zamiast węgla ukazało sie coś okropnego. Cos tak strasznego o czym nawet nie śnili nawet w najgorszym koszmarze. Ogromne ciało, wielkie jak dom, obslizgłe, nie człowiek, nie zwierze. Wyglądem przypominające wnętrzności z kawałkami strawionych zwłok. Pełne bąbli, żył , zębów, oczu i scięgien. Nie mogli uwierzyć w to co widza. Najgorsze było to ze to coś żyło i wyraznie próbowało nawiazać kontakt z górnikami, kórzy byli niczym zachipnotyzowani. Chcieli uciekać ale ciekawość była silniejsza. Jeszcze wtedy nie wiedzieli, że to był duży błąd. Mieli dyżur całą dobę więc tego wieczora rodziny na nich nie czekaly.

Następnego dnia wczesnym rankiem wszysto wydawało sie normalne. Z daleka kopalnia zawsze wyglądała na opuszczoną nawet przy pełnej zmianie pracowników. Jedynie ruszający sie taśmociąg z węglem i węgielny pył byl oznaką ze praca idzie pełną parą. Wydażenia poprzedniego dnia coś jednak zmieniły. Zamiast węgla z taśmociągu tryskała krew. Niczym świeżo odkryta ropa na dalekim zachodzie. Ogromna fontanna krwi. Opadające krople wyglądały jak krwawy deszcz u podnóży głownego taśmociągu. Poniżej górnicy krzyczeli niczym szaleni. Nie byli już sobą. Byli zmutowani z organizmem który odkryli poprzedniego dnia.
Cali w bąblach, i innych okropnościach zjadali się nawzajem i na swój sposób radowali się tym. To ostatni obraz jaki zapamietali Ci , kórzy przekazali mi tę historię . Nikt nie wie co było potem. Miejmy nadzieje ze to coś zostało zniszczone na zawsze.

Nice start, great story, pretty deep, :slight_smile:

i like the concepts as well :slight_smile:

good luck mate


#14

Nice drawings. It seems like there is a big opportunity with the crazy miners emerging out of the tunnel: that whole lights at the end of the tunnel thing. Keep up the good work!


#15

Storyboards look wiiiicked! Fun concept too… :smiley:


#16

Awesome … I am sure you’re provide us with a suitably gory monster too :slight_smile:

If you need help fixing up the english script just shout out as I’d be happy to edit it for you.


#17

thanks,

axiomatic - Would be great if you could help me with script edit. I wasnt sure this script is even undertandable:) . I will put your name in special thanks if i will finish this trailer :).

Its storyboard with some details just see well what happening and to get general feeling of story atmosphere. Its not concept much. Im going to skip sketching concept part. In zbrush i can play around as well and get some final look and meshes - to save time wich i dont have much.

Marek I’ve read your story and to me it seems like its a story before story. Like they do in a movies, for example in lucas starwars before they show you the image text goes in where they explain how does this universe work and who is who.
If I may suggest that you put 2 characters in bathing suits (looking like this may be - http://michaelmay.us/09blog/01/0131_alientrespass_0poster.jpg) that will end up in this mine and then the story will roll up. This will be much more fun and 50s B movie sort of thing.

In any case your story is the best horror idea I’ve seen here soo far - soo good luck!

Good luck Starszek! Can’t wait to see more…
