Are there any rules against having people help with tiny stuff like inbetweening or background touch-ups?

Just listened to my own recordings of a character (in my script) and ouch (didn't work out as planned).

So, guess I'm gonna have to find a few actors in short notice (two gal characters (girlfriend innocent, then ugly), three guy characters (two heroes and one villain).

If interested just PM (I'll search NG community too).

Thanks.
P.S. Will definitely submit a preview once the voice work is done. To a great open round!:)

I must say I am really looking forward to all these entries. they look amazing so far. I always kept a close eye on TOFA and now I shall watch NATA. There are so many creative people here it just blows my mind. Keep up the good work everyone!

Hell yeah! Who needs voices!? Let your animation do the talking.

This looks like it's gonna happen. So here's my progress:

Voices: NOPE
Storyboard: 100%
Writing: 100%?
Blockout Animation: 27%
Final Animation: 0%
Colors: 0%

Here's a screenshot from one of the scenes.

I worked a lot on the weekend and now I'm two and a half minutes in. This is coming along reasonably well!
A little excerpt from mine, if anyone's interested: http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/f5424d257cf626a7ce2fbd0a ea58c500

Everyone's stuff looks really awesome so far, by the way!

Wow, yours looks great so far! I love your use of colors in this, too. It looks very sharp and bright. Your frame by frame is very nice also. I'm curious about the story, but I suppose I'll have to wait until you submit it. Keep up the good work!

Thanks! ...well, I sort of am stretching the theme a little, but it's related. I was reminded of that scene in Back to the Future 2 (I think) where Doc draws that little graph showing multiple timelines, and I did something that relates a little more to that than time travel. The rest will have to remain a secret for now :)

Well, that's what is great about an open-ended theme. It leaves plenty of room for interpretation, and gives the participants lots of room for creativity. I'll be looking forward to it!

If I animate everything I've story boarded I'm looking at a animation that comes out to 5 minutes and 15 seconds!
God help me :(
I'm waking up super early tommorow!
I've got the first part out of 5 parts animated now moving onto the second scene!

That's a really awesome car. I mean, the whole thing looks great, but I can't draw cars at all, and this one that you have is really impressive.

Thanks, man! It took a lot of observation and attention to highlights/gradients to give it a nice, polished look.

Also, how the hell did you animate 2.5 minutes in eight days? Don't you have school or something?

Had the opportunity to work on this all day today. That will never happen again. Here's the updated progress report.

Writing: 100%
Storyboard: 100%
Backgrounds: 100%
Blockout Animation: 40%
Final Animation: 0%
Colors: 0%
Sound: 0%

I haven't had to do sound work in years. Anyone have a good resource for sound effects?

Finally another screenshot:

Well, I go to the computer lab at lunch to animate, and grade 10 doesn't exactly give me much homework at all, so I can pretty much work from when I get home to when I go to bed, too.

Also, SenorLlama, try freesound.org. It's where I get all my sound effects from, and it's a really great resource.

Instead of just animating I'm going to storyboard the rest of the animation and then add the backgrounds so character animation is easier to focus on :)

Good! Hey someone's on newgrounds other than me! Our school is like the last school to go on vacation haha.
So basically i have like 6 minutes of animation to do. I've finished story-boarding the remaining animation. Now i'm making backgrounds for scene 2 and 3. Tommorow I'll make backgrounds for scene 4 and 5 and then TRY to animate everything!
If it goes according to plan I'll still be cutting it super close!

Even I can tell that there are going to be a lot of awesome animations this year!

I'm trying to throw something together as well, but I feel that I'm rushing it a little too much because of exams and I'm also a little uncertain about the simpe/naive style I've chosen for this intry and how to animate it most effectively. Anyone want to give some constructive critisism? :)

The only criticism I could make is about the pan across the doors is a little slow. Otherwise it's looking really good.

Well that's nice, thanks! :D
I'm just worried that If I make it faster, people wont have the time to read the signs, since it kind of introduces the idea of where the main character is. Maybe I should thing of something in order to make the pan more interesting though :/
