Coop has announced the first Monthly Writing Contest of the new year! This one is really ambitious, where you need to create a story or concept to go along with a song in the Audio Portal, the goal being to write something so good, an artist will then want to animate it! Everyone would be credited in the final production. See Coop's post for more details.
Goat-Man has announced auditions for Did You Hear That? Volume 3. Each participant contributes one sound effect, at which point GM puts them in random order and each person animates an individual cartoon set to that soundtrack. It's a neat collab and a great opportunity to get involved! Here's how Volume 2 turned out:
Another recently completed and inspiring collab was the 24HRC:
Led by RicePirate, a group of artists each took on chunks of a storyboard to complete a unified story. There will no doubt be more 24 hour collabs in the future so keep an eye out!
At the top of the front page we're currently featuring BearBound, one of the stars of the latest NG Game Jam.
So yeah... SOME GOOD COLLABING GOING ON.
Through the ongoing process of updating thumbnails and genre info, we revisited the 2006 works of Matt Sandbrook this past week, such as:
Matt just happens to have submitted a Christmas movie, after a four year lull.
deadlock32 could use some votes of support for his child resistant marker/pen container concept on Quirky! It's a neat site where you submit invention ideas and if the community gets behind them, they get made.
Six days remain for the current voice acting competition.
Only three days remain to vote for the Best of December! Check your account page to see if you're part of the voting pool.
