This is the discussion thread for the January 2011 Movie Jam.

Three years ago, I received a PM from a fan with a story about Newgrounds. The story was so endearing that CarrotClock felt the need to make it a reality. The entire process took probably less than an hour.

This, combined with the recent hilarity of Dot Dot Dot has reminded me that you can have a lot of fun with the words written by other people, even if the story isn't that great.

For our first NG Movie Jam of 2011, we're going to start with writers submitting their short stories. Stories must be of a scope that can fit a one minute movie.

On January 28th, we will have a live webcast from the office where we browse the stories and pick our favorites. That evening, we will announce which production teams are tackling which stories. The teams will then have 48 hours to give their best effort to bringing those stories to life. The writers will be co-authored on the final submission and guaranteed at least 20% rev share.

Production teams will consist of any combination of artists, voice actors and musicians. The max team size (not including writer) is FOUR, so 2+ artists can team up to cover characters and backgrounds, etc. Music from the Audio Portal is allowed as additional credits.

Prizes:

1st - $130 store credit split amongst team
2nd - $100 store credit split amongst team
3rd - $70 store credit split amongst team

If I submit a short story can I also sign up to be on a team? Not that I would expect to work on my own story but is that a possibility OR is it that we can only do one or the other?

What if someone is interested in both writing a story and being involved in another aspect of production? Would someone be allowed to, say, write a story that ends up being used for a Flash and voice act for another Flash (or possibly the same Flash the story was written for)?

I think I can take a short break of writing stories for just my website and come up with a one minute long story. Also what about one sentence stories like the ones seen one onesentence.org?

I think we should be keeping these writing submissions PG-13 rated.

Also, I can write pretty good, just need someone wanting to do the audio and animation. Good luck to the other teams I guess.

I'm limiting it to one story because it would be too easy for someone to spam it with endless short stories.

If you did a one sentence story, it might require too much elaboration on the part of the production team... Could give it a shot but might get passed over.

Sounds alright then. I guess I'll be cutting down from the average ten to twelve paragraphs to just two paragraphs since that should be enough for a one minute story.

I can see this whole thing crashing, but other wise, I would gladly do background art or voices for anyone.

I threw my name into the hat for the winter game jam as a VA, but the misc group was way too crowded and I didn't get picked.
I'll throw my name in as a voice actor for hire in this group.
Feel free to check my previous work.
If you want me in the group, shoot me a PM and let me know who else is in the team, and I'll get back to you. A PM is guaranteed to get my attention, whereas if you just comment about the fact in this thread, I might not see it.
