    Default Is there a title yet?

    Given there's already a story to the movie, i wonder if there is already a title chosen.

    Any cool suggestions if not?

    just trying to keep the ideas flowing. It would be so cool if an idea born on the forum actually made it to the screen

    what, you dont think fans are capable of good ideas? just take a look at Longhaul's concept art that started as fan-art and actually became the robot mode used in the movie.

    No offense, but ... they're "capable" of good ideas, but very few fan ideas make even passable when it comes to publishing or film.

    Art is one thing- computer and art are forms that can be very unique. But when it comes to titles, characters, stories... they get super "fan"-like. You can *always* tell when something is fan made, no matter the budget.

    I've seen it for years, people will pick it to pieces.

    Well, at least to pay for... I have no problem watching good fan stuff on YouTube- if it's really good.

    If I'm paying 12$/movie, and 30$ to buy it- I need the production value and quality behind it, not just words or "I'm a fan therefore I can..."

    yes, that sound right...its just that if they made a fan movie, anyone who wasn't a fan probably wouldn't understand half of it...it would just be too much for them..we would understand, but everyone else.....hmm..debatable

    Nelson's right.


    Buuuut, a fan's idea might be transformed into a better one. But that doesn't mean it's a good idea.

    If a movie is only assessable (read:comprehensible) to the die-hard fans who have seen/read all related material a million times, it's no good either. Writers and directors should have some idea of the source in a case like this, but to drown the movie in the old stuff would shut out a big audience, so a lot of money. And if you give the fans the chance the make the ideas, and rework them, movie makers will be even more buried than they are now, and then there are legal issues.

    Can you guys imagine the disaster the TF movies would be if they were just for G1 purists or something? These movies aren't even the same continuity!

    We don't even know what the movie is about. How could we hope to come up with a decent title? Leave it to the film crew.

    The best line of Transformers 1 came from a fan submission. I was disappointed they didn't do it again for TF2.

    They had a contest to have a line that prime says in the movie, and the winner was, "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings."

    Oh yeah... but a fan didn't come up with it. It was a line that already existed in the cartoons
