Here's the first half of my part, I just need to add two more scenario's.

Pretty good so far, like the side-mirror effect.

I think I've done enough creeping around this collab.
There is obviously talented artists here, and that has peaked my interest.

I decided to storyboard my idea.
Click anywhere on the frame to see the next "scene"

This way you know what I'm going for before I do it.

And don't expect it done too soon. I do have other commitments.

Maybe there's fitting music in the audioportal. I like it when people use music from the portal. But Jaga Jazzist is also great :)

Hmm... Well, I don't want to. I want the red balloon to be different.

Everyone's parts are so AWESOME, my part is so fast-made and choppy compared to yours :C

I was just wondering if you guys can help me out.
I need 30 reviews for my movie before wednesday. I'm working my way up there, and i'd be happy to return the favor for anyone. Please check it out.

Now that i've kind of "temporarily hi-jacked" this thread, i'll be sure to get a part done ^_^

This is not relevant to the point of this thread. Also, it's not wise to get your friends and other people to give you 10's, the NG admins are cracking down on that sort of thing and stuff could get deleted.

How long exactly can our parts be?

As for music, I think that a kind of ambient music would have a good feel to it if the parts are a bit slow too. There is a lot of good ambient music on the Audio Portal, but I suggest you listen to this first. This Is A Process Of A Still Life has great ambient music.
I think 'All my Blessings Are a Curse', 'Constantly Under Surveillance' and 'The Possibility of Flight' are great songs to use. Not to mention that you can download them for free from their side (the link above).

It's really great, but I think you've missed the main theme there: cardboard. If you'd use some more cardboardtextures it'll be fantastic

great stuff all of you, I'm really liking it, all of it!

vincoid, I'd prefer parts not to be much over 45 seconds at MOST, but if it can maintain a flow with the rest of the parts, then that'd be fine, as long as they can transfer freely from one part to the next, length isnt a big deal.

nick, I love your part, FABULOUS sky ^_^

biskits, I didnt really understand your part when it was really yellowy, but the other guy in front of the moving background was pretty cool. if you could make it seem less traced, that might be a nice direction to take it in.

marcy, rockin' as always. I sort of agree with robbies comment about the balloon, I know what you're going for with emphasis and contrast, but maybe could you tone it down just a little bit? not much, just a teeny little bit.

thanks for the FLA ziwon! Im still totally amazed by that train you animated. well done. hope you can continue to add pieces to the cardboard city, but you've done some awesome work already, and if you're too busy, thats totally fine. :)

My part:- clickyclicky.swf

that's it all cardboardy-eesh. :) i took out that weird yellow bit....
i thought because it was cardboard i'd make it really jagged because it's... cardboard...?

if someone can post a link so i can upload my .fla that'd be cool, or if you want me to expand on my bit i'll do that first :DD

I just watched your updated part while that still life song horizon/line was playing. It's really awesome.

Anyways, sorry about my lack of posts. Lots of family nonsense going on. My dad's not going to be with us much longer. I'm fine though. This is spring break, so I wouldn't be able to be at the computer lab very much this week anyways. Next week I'll get cracking again. See you guys on the flip side.

Oh, yes, I'll keep up the constant ego stroking going on here to say: AWESOME PARTS EVERYONE!

biskits, your subway scene should be intergrated with ziwon's somehow.

That's a nice length for me. I might make a storyboard for it this weekend.

Great news: I'm going to work on my part right now. I'm going to write down some stuff first to see what I can come up with. After that I'll see how I can fit all that in 45 seconds or so, and then I'll storyboard it.

I think the whole thing will be done in about 4 days to a week or so, depending on how much other stuff comes a long.
