Try reading what has been said earlier, if you're eager to join one would think you would have read through the thread.
It's filled, and from what I remember, people waiting in line if anyone cancels out.

The duedate makes me wanna do this later, but I do have time off for 3 weeks now. Bah, I'll make my mind up as we go :p

yeah i can see the white stripe too :\
but good work on the preloader Yhtomit!!

Thanks, guys.

About the white strip, that seems to be an issue with dumping grounds, because that doesn't appear when I load it up in flash. Minor bug, probably not an issue.

Awesome. I'll be interested to see what you come up with.

Yeh, OMK, your name's been put on the waiting list.

Well, if you've got time now, but might not later, then make use of it.

A couple questions. Is it first come first serve for the spots and no more submissions, or are the best 18 chosen? (Lets say the 18 are chosen, but then someone makes a really good part, is it left out?)

Also, if I choose to be layer heavy, can I dump it in a movie-clip for you? If not I'll go light

It seems like spots are filled, but I'd like to call the next opening.

Writing songs for cigarettes and credit would be cool.

Now, when you say don't make sound vital, what do you mean? Can there be speech? What music are you going to be using? Will it be super loud and will it overpower any custom sounds? And can I join?
And if I use Flash CS5, would that not work with Flash 8?

That's the theory atleast.

I would prefer the parts be kept greyscale.

The 18 don't get chosen until the deadline has passed. Experience of collabs tells me that there's some natural turnover in collab members over time anyway, so people on the Waiting List are likely to have plenty of chance to join. The 18 will be the best ones, chosen from the completed parts that are on the main list at the time of the deadline.

Also, if I choose to be layer heavy, can I dump it in a movie-clip for you? If not I'll go light

Well, those layers still take up digital space, even if they're not on the main timeline, so I would prefer them not just dumped in movie clips to hide them.

It seems like spots are filled, but I'd like to call the next opening.

No worries, I'll put your name on the waiting list.

The parts shouldn't revolve around the sound used in them. The only time it ever really worked in a Sketch Collab was in 2008, and that's because pretty much everyone used sound. It's kind of a case of either everyone or no one. And since last year's was a bastard in terms of file size even with limited sound effects, I would prefer it kept to a minimum.

And the music is selected once the top 18 have been selected, so that we pick a song that best matches the length of the collab. And the song will be chosen from the Audio Portal. I honestly have no idea what it's going to be at this point.

You can't immediately join because we're full, but I can place your name on a waiting list so that when a part becomes available I can notify you.

And if I use Flash CS5, would that not work with Flash 8?

Well, your part will have to be passed around from Flash CS5 to CS4 to CS3 to Flash 8, and converted between them. As long as you've kept it frame-by-framed, there shouldn't be any conversion issues along the way.

My grandfather passed away. So the basic sketches will be started next friday with that vacation I have coming. I will see if I can pump out a quick preview to.

I'm sorry for your loss.

But yeh, good luck with your part. Just don't rush it too much. You've got time.

Yeh, I'll put you both on the Waiting List.

But I do need to make it clear WE ARE FULL. THERE ARE NO MORE OPEN SPOTS, AND THE WAITING LIST IS NOW NINE PEOPLE LONG. I know there's some natural turnover as a collab goes along, but still, you're going to be waiting ages if you join the list now, so perhaps consider if there are other projects or collabs that are more in need of people to help right now before expressing an interest in joining this one.

And on a similar note:

ANYONE WHO DOESN'T POST WITHIN ONE MONTH OF JOINING THE COLLAB WILL BE KICKED FROM THE LIST. THERE IS A HIGH DEMAND FOR SPACES, SO PEOPLE WHO AREN'T MAKING USE OF THEIRS WILL MAKE ROOM FOR PEOPLE WHO WILL. This is just to make sure that people are staying active and paying attention to the thread. I know the deadline's in June, but I don't want this thread to show no progress until May.

K, I know I said I had time but then comes the homework you never see, because teachers always throw sapping, paralyzing sawdust in ones eyes, also known as lazyness syndrome.
Anyway, Imma dig through that, go on my cruise (which is in 2 weeks, being gone 2-3 days) and when I return, my deadlines are met, and I got easter break. So I'll do my shit then!

Good luck everyone! :D

Good luck to everyone! :)

Nice! That looks like a great starting point for a part! Nice smooth animation, the character's nicely expressive despite the simplicity of the design, which is good, however, the most obvious thing that needs changing is the background. I'm fairly certain I posted a download link to the background we're using, so if you could create a new bottom layer and stick the background image in there, that'd be cool. Other than that, I'm looking forward to seeing how that develops.

comment and tell me how i did

Not bad so far. The first thing that I notice though is that the lines are incredibley thick. I think it'd be better if you went back over that with a thinner brush size, maybe give it more of a sketchy look. Secondly, it is incredibly difficult to work out what's going on because the whole thing moves insanely fast. So yeh, slow it down, and thin out the lines. Other than that, not a bad start.

At 2 days ago, Travis wrote: I have started my vacation. I will begin work here shortly.

I've got an idea for the credits though. I figured I could have the credits roll like normal, but each co-author gets a slide with their name underneath a small sketch doodle likeness of them.

How does that sound?

Hmm... Who would be doing the sketch doodles? I often find that once parts have been put together, it's difficult to get in contact with everyone to get things together for extra bits like that.

Also, part of me's not quite sure you can really start on the credits yet, seeing as we don't actually know precisely whose parts will be in the collab. So yeh, feel free to brainstorm and make test credits, but I wouldn't expect to have anything definite this early on.
