Hello dear Ubuu. I'm considering making a live action low-budget Yume Nikki movie. Haven't decided yet if it'll be a short or feature-length, or what worlds/areas to omit, or what the details of the story will be. I'm curious about what you guys/girls/squirrelkin think: good/bad idea, potential legal troubles since no one can ask Kikiyama for permission, what should stay, what should go, what the effects should be like (the token idea from the comic seems doable), what you'd like to see in such a production, whether or not you think dropping a crossover from something else is a good idea, etc.24 posts and 7 image replies omitted.

I'm really just gathering my thoughts on the concept and who better to ask than fellow fans of the ganme? I do think that I'd like it to have little to no dialogue just like the game, very much "show don't tell." Also, has anyone talked about this anywhere before?
Can't wait to see what comes from this. Thanks in advance, everyone :-)
There are no cases of people creating free fanworks and being successfully sued. Like ever. One time The Pokemon Company tried to sue a kid and they ended up losing money in the process, lol.
Do what you wanna do man, but don't pretend that getting sued by Kikiyama over this is even a remote possibility.
No one is going to sue you, do you have any idea how many people rubbed their armpits with kiki's copyright? Or how many Sonic fans should be executed for this?
At this point, it's almost as if you were making this up on purpose to discard the whole idea of a movie if there ever was one, no one can be this naive…
Do you deny that there is a legal risk, even if it is marginal?
"Marginal" is kind, thousands of bigger and more corporate franchises got fan films, if you're actually serious about making one you should know this, not only is improbable, but we're also talking about a person who has been MIA for like 8 years.
Granted, if I go to work today a satelite may explode in space and its remains could destroy the office where I work killing me, but I want to go to work today.
