Dr. Wilson has finally discovered something his has craved for years: a cure for cancer. But after a terrible accident, everything changes. Dr. Wilson's assistant is dead, and something horrible is on the loose. Only Inspector Bill Gristle and his skilled CSI team can solve the mystery and stop the creature known as the Beast.
This version of Beast is almost nothing like the original concept. I first thought up the idea of Beast in March of 2006. I had just heard about the new movie The Omen, and that it was going to be released on sixth day of sixth month of the sixth year of the new millennium, or 06/06/06. 666 is, of course, the Number of the Beast mentioned in the Book of Revelation. I thought it would be cool to release a quick brickfilm on 06/06/06 with a "beast" theme as a little joke. The original story this: on 06/06/06 a demonic creature rises from hell and the world ends. Original, huh?
The direction of this project quickly changed when the Brickfilms.com "Fame, Infamy and Glory" Contest was announced. I threw out the old story and began a new one. The basic premise was a retelling of the werewolf and Frankenstein stories with a modern twist. I tweaked the story several times to fit more in with the Fame, Infamy and Glory theme required by the contest, and I added the crime scene investigation theme as well. The end result was a massive 15-page script. I began filming the key scenes, but I quickly realised the project was too large and I wouldn't be able to complete it in time. I cut out two major subplots and half the characters. This left me with a managable film, albeit weakened and watered down. I finished filming, but I was struck with another roadblock when I began editing. Films submitted in the contest had to be ten minutes or shorter. I have over twelve minutes of footage. I grit my teeth and removed every excess shot, and cut words out of sentances to trim the dialogue down. Beast is the result. It's skeletal and diluted, but it had to be done.
I still have the original script, and all the voices, and I'm not going to reveal anything else, because eventually I'm going to make and release Beast: Director's Cut. I am not setting a deadline, and I'll work on it slowly, making each bit the best it can be. It might be released in 2007, it might be even 2008. But I have a feeling it's going to be a whopping half an hour long. So stay tuned. But don't hold your breath.
