Wow, thats awesome! I feel like some competion about making the bestest part, do you guys feel it too? Probably not. But, hey! Some competition never hurts.

Sorry for double post

Can we use other textures, just not too much, so the central theme involves cardboard.

Excuse my English ... it's not my native language and I'm really really tired of learning my exams.

I'm still not for sure doing a part for this. I'm still creeping the forum for now.
I just wanted to say, very nice. With the right music, it could be very relaxing.

My only suggestion, is use darker cardboards to scan the title and buttons. Those colors seem so out of place, when eveything else is textures


GAH!

competitions always nice, when its not mean spirited, but I dunno, jake's set the bar pretty high guys :)

If you're done with that piece, send it over and I'll add some sky and OFFICIALLY BEGIN COMPILING PARTS ZOMG!!!1one!1. You're right about it making a good intro/first part, It'll go first, just after the menu :)

gatling, sure, use some other textures, thats cool. but yeah, keep it as cardboard-centric as you can :)

good to hear Ziwon!

thats a good point goat-man, I'll fix it up!

For music, I'm curious if any of you have ever listen to jaga jazzist. it's super chill and super awesome. I used a song of theirs in this movie I made. Check it out.

that sounds really fitting, thanks for the recommendation. Nick and I will look at the various options for audio once we've all got the parts together and sequenced nicely, but that one really does sound fitting, and its quite possible that we'll go with it, what do you think nick?

Here's a preview already!
It's just a fast "story board".... The scenes will have smooth transitions and I'll add sound and stuff. Hope you like it, I love it myself :)

Update.
This is just a little part I've been working on, I made another one before, but I wasn't happy with it, plus I'd used too many black lines in it. Anyway, there you go. This collab is going very well, I'm very happy.

Not really, the only problem regarding file size will be when people have to send the FLA. to Morroways. Even then, we can use stuff like MegaUpload and SaveFile, it will just take a while to upload. In terms of the Final .swf, it can definitely be under 10mb, for example, my part which I just posted is only 40kb. Things should work out sweet ^_^

you guys should get YouSendIt accounts. 100 mb hosting for 7 days and it's totally free. It just sends an email with a link to the file. Check it out.

not a bad idea, but savefile goes up to 60 megs I think, and you dont need an account at all. Also, I'd be amazed if anyone's .FLAs became more than 60 megs ^_^

Yeah. I just think YouSendIt's the fucking bomb. (drunk posting...again). I hate to say it so early, but do you guys have any plans for sponsorship? If not an entity that actually sponsors, perhaps mochiads or something? I know that makes things hard with a collab, but seeing SOMETHING being gained from a project like this would be amazing.

I'm going to work on something for this tomorrow I believe. Hopefully I've got some more fbf for you guys to see and go oooh, ahhh to. It's insipirational.

For this next part, I'm thinking something with a person holding their hands under a skin and letting the water drip onto their hand. just real elegant and awesome

Neal, I love that fucking background you made for your little scene their.

Another little slice of information, I based the city skyline off of one I found for Pittsburgh. This means, this whole thing to me is going to be based off of my wonderful city. I hope you guys can relate to how much I fucking LOVE this place. Super livable with some of the most amazing people I've ever met.

its an idea, I know Nick has worked with mochiads before, and I remember hearing someone talking about some new NG ads where you get 2 cents every time someone looks at your video, I think it was I-Smel, which would all be cool except that we'd have to divide it however many ways, which would be tedious and would probably not amount to any of us recieving much. We'll see what we're thinking once its more or less finished.

sounds good, cant wait to see it.

I dunno if we've got a neal... maybe you meant nick? ;)

Thanks Morrow and Jake! For my next part, I think i'll make it a lot more scrappy and with more characters. In terms of sponsers, we couldn't use Mochiads because they only sponser games. But NG ads may be a possibility ^_^

hey morrow, I know you said you wanted that fla, but how about I complete a couple more parts and then I send you one big fla? would that work out okay for you? I figure we should see some more of what's going to be made and then talk about lining them up.

Hey. Started working on it just now (I always think I have a lot more free time than I actually do). But there's no hurry, right?

I have a question. I have this really cheesy, but somehow appealing idea to base my part around a guy who almost commits suicide, but doesn't go through with it. So, is that OK as long as I avoid violence and keep it peaceful?

I'm probably gonna keep asking little silly questions all the time.

Anyway, everyone's parts look great.
