Become a Hollywood star, writer and producer for an evening of moviemaking mayhem. Have you ever watched a movie trailer and learned everything you needed to know about the full film? Then this is the game for you... During the game you will make two three-minute movie trailers with your fellow players... then show them to the other teams. Finally you vote on the best ones at the academy awards ceremony - have your best acceptance speech ready!

For Dramatic Consequences we are looking for the movies that *you* want to make. Will we see 'The Yoghurt Locker' battle it out against 'A Bazaar - 4D' in the academy awards? Or would you rather see classics like 'The Maltese Pigeon' and 'Look Back in Bangor'? Send in your suggestions and the best ones will be used for Consequences (and made available for download from the Hollywood Lives webpage).

Jacklin, Kevin

Kevin Jacklin has been playing and producing freeforms for the last twenty years. He helped introduce the weekend freeform game to the UK, by producing such games as Café Casablanca and King's Musketeers. For the Convulsion conventions he has co-written three fantasy freeforms, including Home of the Bold. In Hollywood Lives, Kevin co-operated with renowned boardgame designer Reiner Knizia to bring a set of compelling game mechanics alongside the freeform elements of movie-making.
