Hi there fellow newgrounders,
almightyhans, creator of ANIMATION INVASION and the CLATOMIC series here with an announcement:
-450x300 screen size
about the project:
The "Valentine '29" collab is about Al Capone's St. Valentines Day Massacre that took place in Chicago 1929. In this collab we will reinact the massacre by spliting it into 4 scenes.
the first scene, wich includes the phone call from capone in Miami to Chicago, and the looking out for "Bugs" Moran (Capone's rival) entering the garage to kill him. and finally, the spotting of "Bugs" Moran and the plan to kill "Bugs" Moran getting into action.
(animated by me, Hans Van Harken a.k.a. almightyhans) [email protected]
the second consists of the action in the plan. the initial plan was for 4 Capone gang members dressing up as police men, well 2 as police men and 2 as casual clothes, come out of a police car . 2 carried a shot gun, and 2 carried thomsons. they walked in as police men into the garage and demanded them to place their hands on the wall in a row, they did, following the "law". amd when they did, the fake police and casually dressed guys fired over and over at them and even fired more when their bodies were on the ground until they stopped twitching.
(The 3rd scene is shorter, for those animators who would like to participate but not do so much :P)
This scene the 4 guys escape after killing off the men into their polce car and drive away. Pedestrians around watch confused. The four men completed the job of keeping their identities secret, but the initial plan was no succsses, "Bugs" Moran was still alive and had not been present in the massacre.
When the real police arrived, they discovered a carnage not seen since the beginnings of the Jazz Age. Witnesses appeared confused. They couldn't distinguish at what point the police arrived and departed. In fact, they ended up not seeing anyone except the police. The seeds of confusions and conflicting accounts was to lead to a very difficult investigation.
in this collab, i would preferr to be more on the seriouse side, i'm half finished with my part and really tried to make it cinematic and dramatic. i't would be nice if this focus on the story can continue throughout the collab parts. i'm looking for the best quality material each animator can give newgrounds. i'll be especially pickyy choosing the animator who decides to make the massacre scene, because i imagine that will be most people first choice.
so that none of you think i'm just a noo who makes crappy stuff, i'd like to show you a preview of what i got so far... hopefully this will get you inpired or provide you with an idea of what this collab might look like:
if you want to be in this collab, it would make things easier if you had MSN Messenger that way we can keep in touch, do group convorsations and communicate much easier.
