A movie idea I came up with
Click to go to bottom
Hey guys, I just wanted to share this really cool idea for a movie I just came up with. Please let me know your thoughts. Maybe I’ll try to make it as an indie film at some point if I get enough money A group of alien botanists secretly visit Earth under cover of night to gather plant specimens in a California forest. When government agents appear on the scene, the aliens flee in their spaceship (or UFO), but in their haste, one of them is left behind. In a suburban neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley, a ten-year-old boy named Elliott is spending time with his brother, Michael, and his friends. As he returns from picking up a pizza, he discovers that something is hiding in their tool shed. The alien promptly flees upon being discovered. Despite his family's disbelief, Elliott leaves Reese's Pieces candy to lure the alien to his house. Before going to sleep, Elliott realizes the alien is imitating his movements. He feigns illness the next morning to stay home from school and play with him. It gradually becomes apparent that Elliot can "feel" the alien's thoughts and emotional perceptions, something that is clearly shown when the alien accidentally opens an umbrella, startling him, and simultaneously startling Elliot in a kitchen several rooms away. Later that day, Michael and their five-year-old sister, Gertie, meet the alien. They decide to keep him hidden from their mother, Mary. When they ask him about his origin, he levitates several balls to represent his planetary system and demonstrates his powers by reviving dead chrysanthemums. Already starting to pick up the English language he demonstrates his signature power, revealed through his glowing fingertip by healing a minor flesh wound on Elliott's finger.
But what if it was video game?
It is good idea but there is one issue. How can setting have Californian forest when all of california is on fire at all times. Forest would have burnt down.
