SLEEP TALKERS COLLAB
============================

There was a topic on Reddit today about things people have said while asleep.
http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/17jg5n/whats_the_
weirdest_thing_anyone_has_ever_said_to/

I think these statements would make a funny animated collab where each animator takes a statement and animates that awkward moment when it happened!

ANIMATORS AND VOICE ACTORS: If you're interested, please PM me a link to something you've animated/voiced and which of the following you'd like to animate/voice:

AVAILABLE PARTS:
======================
A. "you can put the sugar on the fence to prevent weasels"
B. "the whales have eaten all my sunscreen"
C. "My hands are on fire, I've got to shut the door."
D. kid once clapped twice really loudly while sleeping and simply said "silence."
E. A friend texted me one night after I had fallen asleep asking me if I was still awake. Somehow I texted her in my sleep "I'm not, but others are..."
F. My husband told me he once woke up to me grasping at his ass and saying "I'm catching your, I'm catching your, I'm catching your memories!"
G. "Tell Africa I'll call them in the morning."
H. I lost the Magna Carta, guys.. Help me find it!
I. I was sharing a bed with a friend, he was asleep and I was awake. I farted, it smelled like death. A few seconds later, he sat up, turned to me and asked "watcha cookin?"
J. I was reading and didn't realize my boyfriend was asleep when he suddenly said "All that matters is you're safe." ("Safe from what?") "From the cave sharks."
K. Yesterday, my husband was snoring while still half awake.. And out of the blue, he says to me "I stagger my snores to hide my numbers."
I snorted.
L. Brother sat bolt upright and said very sternly, "I NEED A TRADE"
M. "Give me your bra, I'm making chili..."
N. "You're my favorite Asian." I'm not Asian.
O. A small creature ran across my roof, and my sleeping girlfriend stiffened up, opened her eyes, and said in a voice much higher pitched than her usual voice: "it's heeeeeereee!"
She then went back to sleep. I did not.
P. "stop smoking, you know the dogs said not to."
Q. My girlfriend, in the middle of tossing and turning, shook her fist in the air and said "HAM!" very angrily.
R. Woke up about 3 am and wife was whispering in her sleep 'there is a creature here from the strong'. I thought WTF? And rolled over... Only to see a glowing eye floating about 4 inches below my ceiling across the room. ...reached for my gun and flashlight. Aimed both at the eye and discovered our smoke detector had fallen out of its housing and was hanging by some wires with the green 'everything's OK' light glowing happily away.
S. "I don't know how I don't know how I don't know how" (You don't know how to what?) "Smash the cupcakes." (Why would you want to do that?) "So one doesn't become the leader."
T. "YOU CAN'T HAVE MY PANCREAS"
U. "give me a glass of ocean milk."
V. "We have to sue them for everything. Including the waffles. Sweet waffles....(pause and snoring)...(mumbles something about booty and Mrs. Butterworth)."
W. Wife: <deep sigh> I don't think it's ever going to pass.
Me: What's not?
Wife: My blanket.
Me: Your blanket?
Wife: Mhmm.
Me: Pass what?
Wife: Physics.
X. "FETCH ME MY SWORD!"
Y. My ex sat straight up in the middle of a nap and yelled "HOW MUCH DOES CHURCH COST?!?!", at the top of his lungs, and then laid right back down. I Couldn't stop laughing.
Z. One night when I fell asleep before my boyfriend, I let out a high-pitched "weeee!". He asked me what that was all about, not knowing I was sleep-talking, and I replied, "you know, weeee! Like the game." ("What game?") "The crock pot game."

If your skillz are up to snuff I'll PM you back and tell you you've got the part, then I'll post in this thread a new list of available parts to choose from. Make sure you check the latest list before sending your request PM.

Thats a neat idea, I'll do one of them. I'll leave it up to the VA to pick what he/she is inspired to do a good voice bit for, then ill just work with that.

I'd like to do this one!
I'll whip up something you can judge me on when I fix my computer. Flash won't reinstall for some ungodly reason..

This seems soo awesome! Any chance I could be judged once I finish animating something for the collab? I mean, could I go ahead and animate this prompt /O. A small creature ran across my roof, and my sleeping girlfriend stiffened up, opened her eyes, and said in a voice much higher pitched than her usual voice: "it's heeeeeereee!"/ and if you it comes out go you can put it on the collab and if it doesn't then no.

Yeah, you can do whatever you want, but no guarantees it'll make the cut...

My wife and I have frequent conversations while she is asleep. It's absolutely hilarious. A small example of a true conversation:

Wife: I want an apple.
Me: Ok, what's your favorite apple?
Wife: Pie. My mom used to make banana cream pie when I was little, but that's over now.
Me: What, being little?
Wife: No, the donuts! We at them all.
Me: Were they delicious?
Wife: Of course! They're donuts.

I am a voice actor willing to do any of these (and even multiple if anyone so desires). I just need an animator. So if there are any animators out there who want some high quality voicework (or scripting for any of these), let me know! It's a great idea. I just hope I get a partner!


Always willing to voice act. Make music in my freetime. That's what I get for not having Flash

If you could voice my prompt that would be awesome, and greatly appreaciated.

Feel free to put together your own teams for a demo, just remember there's a minimum quality standard.

Voice Actors: Just go ahead and have at whatever ones you want to do then post a link to the NG dump where your sound file can be downloaded and PUT YOUR USERNAME NEXT TO THE LINK IN THE POST TEXT. From now on I won't be teaming people up officially, I'll just assign animators to parts and let them choose from the pool of voices which one they want to use.

That means, I'm not letting VAs "reserve" specific parts. These are so short, we might as well let everyone have a go at whatever they want to do when it comes to voice acting.

Animation assignments will continue as before.
===============
ASSIGNMENTS:
===============
Animator: http://luis.newgrounds.com/ officially has:
G. "Tell Africa I'll call them in the morning."

Animator: ittekimasu (http://ittekimasu.newgrounds.com) officially has:
J. I was reading and didn't realize my boyfriend was asleep when he suddenly said "All that matters is you're safe." ("Safe from what?") "From the cave sharks."
===============

P.S. If you're an approved animator and have finished your first piece, feel free to PM and request another piece.

See above, it's free game for any Voice Actors, just record and post your lines and, if the animators like them, they'll use yours!

Awesome animatic. I don't have anything to add to it, only that I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.

I've finished an animatic of mine so pointers and feedback would be appreciated also.

http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/592ee71abfb949dbdacce468 89d8a09d

I had some additional questions like is there a certain length you want us to stay between? I had pondered about having the animatic zoom into the caves so that you could see Cave Sharks but thought perhaps it might have made it too long.
