72 Hour Flash-pass: Auditions Aug. 12th, 2011 @ 10:14 PM

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.

THE IDEA:
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

THE NITTY-GRITTY:
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.

So basically you start an animation then we add on to it whatever we want or are there any guidelines?

Like you animate a guy walking for example, then someone animates him tripping and falling, then someone animates him getting up etc. is that the kinda thing you're talking about

sorry i'm a little slow :L

If I could can I take like one of the very last parts?
I also think that a good rule is that the BEST parts go first.
Newgrounders vote less than 3 parts into a collab so if you blow them away at the beginning. than they already vote 5 :).
Normally I vote by if I like it 30 seconds into it haha terrible habit.

Maybe.
I do really want to. And when it's only a 5 hour commitment out of an entire weekend that's a pretty good deal. I'll give you a more solid answer closer to the date, but I can't say 100% right now


GAH!

Alright, Jomillex and I are changing the date, due to a lack of auditions and availability.

THE THREE DAY PERIOD IS NOW FRIDAY THE 26th THROUGH SUNDAY THE 28th. AUDITIONS NOW END ONE WEEK LATER (Wednesday the 24th at 11:59 PM.)

Sorry for any confusion due to this change. All those effected will be messaged.

I move into school on the 28th. So if I worked on this early, like on the 26th then I should be safe.
Again, I'll need to wait to give you a more solid answer.

This sounds good. You've seen my Tofa entries.
Also

And this is, yes, a tweened madness animation.

But it uses more camera-work and music-synching than anything else I've done.

Feel free to shoo me away if better people come along :P

Can you list those involved? Or at least tell us how many spaces are left?

I really would love to join but I'd have to make 2 examples of my best efforts, which I'd animate this week and dump-link for you to decide by next Wednesday.

Oops, I also wanted to say I can be your other organizer if you still need one. I can stay up all night if necessary. I'm in Arizona so right now I'm on Mountain Standard Time.

If you make it in, pretty much anyone who wants to be an organizer can be one, but keep in mind that I may end up making schedules for monitoring the collab if things start to get disoriented. Also, I'm only trying to recruit seven animators (plus me, Jomillex, and the musician) so everyone who participates can get co-authored, but I might stretch it a little if someone who barely didn't make it is okay with not getting co'd.

At some other time, Mark-er wrote some shit:
(seriously, how do I do multiple quotes?)

I'm not really willing to ask other people that I don't know very well to join, simply because It'd be a bit of a dick move if they didn't end up making the cut. (Plus, if I let all these people in without having to make the cut, It wouldn't be very fair to all those who had to audition.)

If you'd like, you can contact these authors and recommend them to audition. I have no problem with that at all.
