I think the writer should post a paragraph or so of the basics in the story, and then from there, collaborate with the artists for the rest of the project. It would get the writer more involved this way.

That example story is messed up. Sounds like something Catoblepas would animate.

Do you think it would work just as well to relax the restrictions on how closely the teams have to stick to the more complicated story ideas? Maybe if the other people in the collabs were free to bend, change, or add to some of what's written (within reason) a lot of people might have a better time tackling some of it.

Also WTF liljim's icon??

That would be much better for the teams. And I might actually make a story now.

For example, one of the current story submissions could be summed up as:

"Wade and Tom are both pooping in the same toilet, but Tom's poop lands on top of Wade's poop and that pisses Wade off so he goes on a total acid trip. And Pico is there too."

Amazing story :3

Likewise, as an animator I want to be able to enjoy the content I'd be animating too. Sure it doesn't have to be my preferred genre, but I don't want to have to animate a story about a dick launching a giant shit bomb into a pussy with teeth you know?

.........Wait a minute... that scares me because that could be 1/3 of a potential story for kids to write now.... FUCK.....

I just submitted my story, and to be honest, the only reason why I came up with the idea is because I was thinking about the Battle of Gettysburg from the civil war.

Holy shit.

Well I just submitted a little script I wrote last year for Luis. Hope it fits. I thought it would be funny if it was made a short movie :P

I've organized 24 Hour Playwriting Contests and similar events before. It's best when the writer is ONLY allowed to write dialogue, then everyone else involved gets a bit more creative freedom.

I'd be pretty pissed if I was assigned that story to animate.

As well, definitely limit the amount of text. For the plays most people can put on a 10 page script in 24 hours. For animations, maybe one page max? Or maybe give it a word count.

And yeah, my script is a little more than a few sentences long, but it should be about a minute of animation.

Wade just goes APESHIT. He can't believe that his FUCKIN BROTHER had the BALLS to take a shit on his shit. WAde starts runnin around and fuckin up the whole goddamn office in a MOTHAFUCKIN ACID TRIP. (his ass hanging out the whole time.)

You totally ran out of ideas after the 2nd sentence.

On Friday we had a live broadcast where we combed through pretty much every submission from the previous week. If you missed out, here are some highlights:

I got Impractical Jokes out of judgment. Cool. Also, do you HAVE to adjust your image size? I'm too lazy.

So are all the previous stories before this announcement null and void? Mine was a bit longer than 3 sentences, but it still allowed for a fair amount of artistic freedom as it was mostly speech with a basic setting.

But I do agree that most of the stories would be useless for an animator to make and I would redo it if it was deemed necessary. My only fear is that with one sentence, what is the point really of having a writer? Instead of creating a story, 1-3 sentences is more like of a prompt than a story at the control of the author.

dear fulp,
so how about the day before submissions are due you can write a message to all the writers confusing the shit out of them for all the stories they wrote. it is true that most of the stories, mine included or not, are shit. but sorta thought the point was that quality did not matter. what it is that does matter? nothing does matter is what it is that matters. in fact, do six hundred words show that much more of a pictor than a couple of sentances. in a way yes i guess so but no because i could say purple monkey dishwasher which seems pretty pacific but ask your friend to draw a purple monkey dishwasher and then ask your neighbor to draw a purple monkey dishwasher and see how different the two drawings look. but if the limit is the sky what does it matter how shat and long the stories are what is funny is how they will be animated and turned to turned into a one minute video. i wouldnt worry about it if you got the animators ready to go, just do it, because if you're gonna change the deadline dont, just do let it go as scheduled. cause it seems like you asking peoples to rewrite or redue and it was starting to get a little confusing( the story post) but not enough people are gonna look before the deadline is up, which will probably lead to further confusingness. who cares. movies are gooooood.. cartoons are fun. let us go to space and visit the space station. i have read through most of the stories and most of them are distressing due to quality not length. and i would red them again but i am tired now. I WOULD LIKE A COOIKE. but besides that don't worry, just make movies for my puppy corn.
thank you,
much

Tom, I honestly think that this site, is going downhill and filling up with spam, the flash portal isn't like it used to be. People now rely on cheesy jokes, and aful animation, like the animation "Suicidal bird"

Tom I think what you actually wanted is for someone to pitch an idea for a movie, not "write a story". I think that's what messed everybody up.
