This collab will be conducted 12:00 AM EDT (newgrounds time) on Friday, August 19th to 11:59 PM EDT on Sunday, August 21st.
Hello everyone. I've had this collab idea for a long time, and I finally spent some time to flesh the whole thing out. If you're a creative animator who likes to collaborate, take a minute to read the following.
This is a bit of a cross between pass my flash and a time trial type collab (sorry, Luis!) The idea is to pass along the flash file from animator to animator for 72 hours of nonstop animation. In order to get this to work, however, I'm recruiting a team of seven animators (other than myself) and ONE musician to score the finished collab.
AUDITIONS CLOSE WEDNESDAY , 11:59 PM EDT
On the the day before the 72 hours, I will send each of the selected participants a link to a typewith.me room where we can chat and post our finished documents via the dumping grounds. I will animate the first part, and then pass it on, who will pass it on to the next person, etc, etc. I am limiting this to seven animators not only because I want all participants to be co-authored, but also because I want to guarantee that everyone who gets accepted gets a chance to animate.
Everyone will have five hours to animate their part(s). If you need more time, you can ask for a two hour extension. If you fail to reply within six hours, the part will be passed on to someone else.
After the 72-hour time period, a musician of my choice will score the finished project. If you'd like to score it, feel free to send me a PM, or post in this thread with a few examples.
Also, I am looking for another organizer! I already have one organizer other than myself, but I'd like to get three, so someone can be in the chatroom at all times, monitoring everyone's progress, and passing it along. If you're up for being an organizer, write that down on your audition!
I will create the menu. SO DON'T ASK.
WHAT I NEED FROM YOU:
To audition, I am requiring you send in at least TWO examples of what you consider to be your best work. DO NOT simply link me to your NG userpage. DO NOT claim that you've "improved" since the time you created what you sent in.
THE THREE DAYS:
The 72 hour period will start 12:00 AM EDT (newgrounds time) on Friday, August 19th. It will end at 11:59 PM EDT on Sunday, August 21st. To compare this to your time zone, see this: http://www.timeanddate.com/library/abbre viations/timezones/na/edt.html. Please post what days/hours you will be busy!
If you have questions, ask in this thread!
[TL;DR]: Collaborative flash-pass to be conducted in 72 hours. Now hiring.
