Rock and Roll Fantasy
This foray into CGI takes the audience into a world torn between the forces of good (led by Lennon, Cash and Dylan) and the forces of evil (led by Cooper, Osbourne and Gaga).
Electric Land (from the Bad Company song) is a place where each and every musical talent from every genre exists. Within this place, a great Rift has opened up which has been growing larger with every day that passes by and that which, some fear, will eventually engulf all of rock and roll. On each side are the opposing forces, each with different views on how to seal the Rift and bring rock and roll back together again. The forces on one side, whose leader is Alice Cooper and his queen, Lady Gaga, are hell-bent on capturing a kid known as the Unifier.
On the other are the Triumvirate of the White Room, John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, who believe that if the Unifier falls into the hands of the Dark Tower, all rock and roll will be doomed. Christopher, a boy who loves music, is propelled into Electric Land and follows an unlikely course through the different sectors, attempting to stay away from the overlord's forces while traveling with his chosen bodyguards, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen and Steve Tyler.
The film concept involves a nearly 100% CGI presentation that brings to life the world of Electric Land, as well as those amazing artists who are no longer with us. I seek to bring about a revolutionary type of film where a huge array of artists from all different musical genres come together to celebrate music and pay tribute to those artists who have made music what it is today.
The script, as it appears here, is pretty hefty, but includes many band names, as well as their members. Once those elements are taken into account, the film is a much slimmer work. This script was previously viewed by Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures.
A further conceptual construct for the film is that music will always be playing in the background, changing with the mood of the film and locations. The opening and the finale are both in live action, but are snippets into the life of the boy, Christopher (in the opening) and the man, Christopher (in the end). Is this a boy fantasizing about Electric Land, or is it a man looking back on his journey through his life?
I suggest if you read the script, have the internet handy to play the music indicated for the best experience for the film.
