Fan Art and Fanfics Will Not Get You A Disney Lucasfilm Star Wars Contract

You have to write a fanfic with love.

Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG 77) #Blockchain

(Originally posted on Tumblr 2018)

Your work will go unread, ignored and unseen. No one will steal your work to get famous because they “stole your idea” and presented it to Disney Lucasfilm.

No one will admire your old work.

Employees of Disney Lucasfilm do not look at work and they cannot even share their own work because it cannot be made public.

You are delusional if you think your idea supersedes the legally contracted ideas Disney Lucasfilm has that is out in the open or their non-disclosure agreements and in their bank vaults.

Stop being a narcissist.

As far as Disney Lucasfilm cares about your art or fanfic, it is theirs for the taking. They own the intellectual property, the copyrights and the trademarks on all images, subject-matter, and stories with the derivatives of the said work.

They also have the advertising and marketing strategies that far exceeds…

Headcanon: Thrawn has a HUGE crush on Sabine Wren

THRAWN X SABINE

tumblr_p2w4ljwb9u1upakypo2_1280

From the 2017 novel, Thrawn by Timothy Zahn.

In the excerpt above, it clearly states: “…All the brushstroke spoke to him; all the light curves told the story of their creator”. Well, by the time Thrawn got to Sabine Wren’s graffiti art, he did not really know her beyond the Imperial Databank reports they had on her.

But, Thrawn had done a cursory study on Mandalorians (possibly before he left The Unknown Regions) and when he learned Sabine Wren is Mandalorian, he became perplexed about how any Mandalorian would be an “artist”.

When he studies her art, he is perplexed by her.

Her art shows line and color control with her “brush nozzles” to relay art in nature to functional design. Then he never imagined she would send him a “message”.

Apparently, Thrawn interpreted this message in a manner Sabine had not considered. That Thrawn would see it…

Mortis and the Time Bandits

In the 1982 movie, Time Bandits, there is a “Map of Creation” that anyone who has the map can move through time and interact with the people, take items of interest and store it. The villain, “Evil” wants to take the map and end time.

The link between Star Wars, Mortis Trilogy and Time Bandits is now “time movement” is the Force, and the Mortis deities created it. The Map is not physical but experiential — by experiencing the Force and what it has to offer from the past, present and future, a Force user can move through time, to interact with people, take items of interest and store them. The villain is the “Dark Side” but more about “wasting time” than ending it.

 

In Time Bandits, a former Beatle sang a song Dream Away:

How We Choose To Roleplay (RP)

How SWAG77 Chooses to Roleplay (RP)

Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG 77) #Blockchain

Ezra space-1

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 chooses to roleplay (RP) a particular way that provides strong, accurate and authentic performances on social media.

Our guidelines are listed on this site: http://bit.ly/guidelines77

Support our efforts: http://bit.ly/SWStuffWAG77

We go at great strides to vet all our members to see if they know how to roleplay in a professional manner, willing to follow the guidelines as we have set them, and have a strong desire to read the literature, write scripts and fan-fictions. We cannot have subversion to our processes because of the amount of work required to organize several social media accounts that are managed and are under monetization through the main company, Ariafya LLC.

We expect all new fans to the SWAG77 to review our sites, our writing, our headcanons, our fanfictions, and our roleplays.

We expect all new fans to participate in our Q&A’s in a fair manner.

#StarWars Fan Art by unapproved Disney Lucasfilm fan artists

thrawnsabinelighter
Fan Art for SWAG77 Get Thrawn In Campaign by Panda Capuccino.

Fan art is something to behold, especially when it is in our fandomverse. And attribution is a good thing. It is upon the kindness of the sharing party to provide decent attribution from the shared art. But it is not MANDATORY and DEMANDING IT IS FUCKED UP!

Artists are taking forms they did not create and using their talents to create derivatives with their skill. Their skills COST, and that should be what is important and remunerated and by our group, we respect it. But the final completion of the art of a derivative work that the artist does NOT own the intellectual property license nor has approval from Lucasfilm to create, is NOT — NOT what needs to be attributed by law.

You can go to court to demand copyright, but you don’t own the license. You created the work out of the kindness of your heart. That’s just the final artform work.

Here is Disney Lucasfilm’s  legal framework that our parent company, Ariafya LLC follows (source):

Our long-standing company policy does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials.  In connection with anything you submit to us – whether or not solicited by us – you agree that creative ideas, suggestions or other materials you submit are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and us in any way, and that you have no expectation of review, compensation or consideration of any type.

 

THE SKILL OF THE ARTIST IS NOT IN QUESTION HERE!

Should you want Disney Lucasfilm to consider your work as an artist or an author, you have to take the RISK to get your name out there. Do what it takes to get noticed by the fandom. PARTICIPATE IN THEIR ACTIVITIES! NETWORK! Don’t massively bad-mouth Disney Lucasfilm and their products.

Inside tracks and knowing someone on the inside is fine and a plus, but Disney is still a corporate entity that wants professionals in its repertoire. They want professionals to KNOW how to play the game and will not freeze up when it is crunch time. Disney is the big league.

If you are yelling and trolling fans for not attributing your work on social media sites, like Tumblr, then you are pathetic and not in the big leagues. No one stole your work, your game in PROMOTION of your work was sloppy and pathetic in this day and age of social media. So it would behoove you to learn this business, first.

If you are going to POST your work ANYWHERE online before the public eye, then you need a business plan of fandom social media engagement and reaction. Yelling at fans or trolling them is going to get you hated. Trolling is not Fandom.

I am not a visual artist. But I do have an official business license and I know how to work social media well enough to get my work where I need it and with commercial support. And yes, I will ask what’s in it for me because I do business, not placating sensitivities. This is not about someone’s emotional instabilities, this is adulting and there are things I have to do in order to complete my project goals that I have set for my needs in a timely manner.

You want to make friends on social media, join a dating app.

You want to take your art to the big leagues, that’s what I’m all about…

 

The Psychology of Taking #StarWars Too Seriously In Real Life On Social Media

star-wars_land_banner2

Fandom is many things. Being entrenched in it, and “Star Warsing” everyday can cause psychological problems as manifested online. We are not talking about having false dichotomies of “Han Shot” questions, we’re talking about when reality is enmeshed with a fictional world to create a delusion based on fantasy that hurts and bullies people on social media.

That is an a unhealthy fandom.

Health fandom is buying the books, watching the movies and TV shows, talking about the plots, reviewing the episodes on blogs and podcasts, cosplay, writing rational fan-fictions that had minimal self-insertions or wish-fulfillment, and roleplaying a character the way the character is manifested through reading research and actor’s and production interviews.

Here at the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 we have seen everything.

It’s fine to crackship, but keep it in perspective. It’s not going to be real. Don’t put your hopes over the top by bashing other fans. A crackship is a relationship between two characters that may be romantic/sexual in nature that would never have the opportunity to meet.

It is fine to speculate and write “metas”. But it should be grounded in the Star Wars literature — ALL THE STAR WARS LITERATURE that also includes Legends. Just because it is no longer canon does not mean that it is no longer valid to examine or interrogate, analytically. Metas are written points of view of how a story should be told and why.

It is not so much that we don’t like alternative points of view or alternate universes to Star Wars, it’s the authoritarian arrogance we hate that does not allow a fan to make choices themselves about what they choose to believe. Our opinions are based on the books, chapter and passage. If the book agrees, then we will go from there.

What we see in some Star Wars fans is they make up and pass off a flim flam to unsuspecting fans who don’t know what is true or what to do. When their false promises fail, these conned fans come to us. We have to re-educate them with facts: Star Wars Books.

We have also seen a heavy duty sexual component passed off to underage children in podcasts, which uses profanity and misogyny to describe characters. That is not Star Wars fandom. Bigotry, racism, sexism, Antisemitism, anti-Muslim, and rape culture is NOT TRAITS of Star Wars fans. Most of that podcast made too many false connotations in red herring logic as a causation to justify a hate logic. That is not fandom. That is spending too much time irrationally against people to justify hatred online and on social media.

The goal of Star Wars fans is to ENJOY Star Wars. Not HATE the content creators and do things to other fans to shame them and get their accounts suspended on social media. If that’s the kind of fandom desired, then Star Wars Actors Guild 77 and its band of pages and campaign is NOT desired.

What is going on is a diagnosis: Narcissistic psychosis.

The cure: Ghosting by blocking all access nodes

The treatment: Playing the gray rock to protect the hate onslaught a narcissist in a psychopathic episode on social media is suffering.

No response, just block.

The best way to think about is there are over 10s – 100 million on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. You do not need drama from a few accounts that block that fulfill. Sorry. That’s the way one needs to think about it.

Besides, our cure, don’t like what we say and want to yell at us? PAY US: paypal.me/SWAG77/100
