Aaaaah it's the LEGO MOVIE!
And that means it's time for a contest! Gather your keyboards, because it's time to write.
Your task is to write a script. Envision the LEGO Movie in your head. Now, create a scene anywhere in the movie. Fiddle with it; work it out. What are the characters saying? What is going on around them; what is the scene? Yo this is like your chance to be Sophocles or Shakespeare or something: Act X scene y. That is what you're going to be writing. (Please note that entries should not be Greek or other sorts of tragedies.)
Scene: At night, the streets are empty. Two figures: short, plastic. The one on the left speaks slowly. The one on the right, silent.
EMMET: And that is why it must be done. It's all on the line.
OTHER FIGURE: ...
EMMET turns around.
EMMET: Tonight, we dine at Denny's.
Dramatic music starts in a sudden crescendo.
So, you have about three weeks to come up with your entry. Let's say the entry period ends January 18th, okay?
Voting will be held through polls. Voting schedule to be determined!
