View Full Version : Assassin's Creed Fanfilm

01-07-2010, 01:43 AM
I recently watched the assassin's creed: lineage on YouTube. I really liked the live-action style of the episodes. Then the idea hit me. I have skills in making films and green screening(not as good as the people that worked on lineage of course. But still ok.). Why don't I make a fanfilm?

I started to begin the script writing progress and then I though, 'would ubisoft let me do this?'

So, I am here asking, is it ok if I make a fanfilm? I am making sure I won't be sued or anything.

The film would not for profit purposes (maybe to cover costs but to to go in pocket) and I would not claim the Assassin's Creed idea as my own. I am just a guy that wants to make a fanfilm that he can upload it to YouTube.

So, what do you think?

I think that you need a good looking costumes and a good actors... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And I think that it will be okay to make one, because theres a whole lot of fanmade AC films over the internet anyway...

Re1ndeer, as far as I know, provided you credit Ubisoft, and do not profit from the production, you should be OK http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Yeah, they really can't sue you so long as you're careful to clearly disclaim that it is fan fiction, that you don't own it, and that you're not making money from it.

In that case, at the very very most they could ask you to remove the video (presumably from youtube or whatever) if they had a problem with it, but there wouldn't really be any grounds for legal action. Besides, Ubisoft don't seem like the kind of the company that would have a problem with the fans getting involved like that.

I've been tempted to try my hand at some sort of fiction within the Assassin's Creed universe, but I always want to do something more grand than just story-writing but don't really have the means to create anything else.

What about using the assassin's creed music? I just want see my possiblities. If a ubisoft person could contact me via email that would be great but not needed. I just don't want to make this film and then be sued or it not being able to be seen.

How old are you cos if your a kid or a teenager, and are planning on filming you and a friend running round your house with costumes that are bits of clothes mixed together, then it will fail.
if however your actors are adult and can put on a convincing and serious accent, and you do actually make short films, and you have good scenery then yeah go ahead ubisoft will let you, they might even put you on their fans got talent section.

There's no problem with you posting it here, but somewhere in the Terms of Use is a clause about 'intellectual property' if I recall correctly - meaning that anything you have made that you post on Ubisoft forums becomes Ubisoft's property. It's extremely unlikely your script would be taken and used, but it's worth reading through the forum rules and Terms of use http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ok thanx for nowing that
here is a part of A script i wrote about,
I do not own assasins creed and i do not make money on it, it just a fan thing:
i tried to make i real (fan)moviescript of it.
just think about how it would look in a movie when you read it:

Thereís a dark chamber thereís not much light, you see desmond(25) alone sitting on his bed.
The flashing. From light (were you see Desmond tinking) to dark (you see nothing) to light( you see lucy reading te message) And you here a voice talking, minervaís voice.

Screen flashing, you First see a boy(desmond) thinking
A girl(lucy) behind a desk and a computer Reading a e-mial

My name is Minerva, Iíam from the Those who came before, human kind wouldnít understond the those who came before but they have to understand our warning, We Created humanity, we gave them birth we shaped them, but they betrayd us, But both the humans and Those who came before were so occupied with themselves and their craving for war, that they failed to "notice the heavens, by the time we did acknowledged the heavens, It was already too late, because of that mistake the World burned Humanity Burned, later We Simply recreated human kind, but we took majore massures, to ensure us , en the heavens, that a similair disaster wonít happen again.

(turning around to look altaÔr in the face)
So donít break your third, understand.

( walking from the wooden statue to a wooden beam)
