Re: FIRST Robotics Movie

I wonder if they are going to recreate the scenes and use the actual team members as actors/actresses or if they have pre-recorded film they are using from the season?

Re: FIRST Robotics Movie

I look forward to the day I am able to screen this movie at my movie theatre.

I certainly hope it actually happens! They have my support, that is for sure!

Re: FIRST Robotics Movie

I'm only 1/6th of the way through the book, and It's wonderful. I heard that it was going to be a screenplay, not a documentary, so they would have to remake some of the things, though I think they will take some Lunacy footage and mix it in there to add to the genuineness of the feeling of FIRST.

Re: FIRST Robotics Movie

This is Awesome!

What I would do is use the current year's game that they film it in as the movie's game while keeping the premise of the underdog team alive. It seems impossible to fake a build season.

At the same time I've been thinking that a FIRST team would be the perfect TV show. Every season would be a new game so there is no chance of getting repetitive year to year. The build season can easily be filmed in such a way to be condenced and elongated to fit into several action packed episodes. Also, the matches are short enough that full elimination rounds could be shown in an episode or broken into two. My baseline thought process is along the lines of American Chopper. Everyone knows that the build season is crazy intense when figuring out designs to the stress of being ever behind schedual to the emotion of regionals. If they made this I think discovery channel would have an absolute hit show that would push STEM awareness to the next level.

Anyways, that was totally off topic.. A movie would be very awesome!
Regards, Bryan

I really hope this becomes a movie as long as they keep the part where we're mentioned.

Don't mean to derail the thread, but does anyone have the first two seasons still? The links in the old threads don't seem to work anymore.

Re: FIRST Robotics Movie

As a friend of someone featured in The New Cool (Luke, on the CAD team) i totally think they should use those kids to act it out. If not i think it would be great to have Luke played by Ashton Kutcher...

Katie and I actually had the opportunity to meet Michael Bacall at the kickoff this year... and we mentioned this to him

Really, though, Mr. Bacall seems to 'get it', and I hope this works out.
