The Newgrounds Collab *Revived! 2008-12-11 03:10:54
It has come to my attention that I pushed off the Newgrounds Collab for far too long. If you remember, I created the Newgrounds Collab a while back, and had to postpone it due to the start of school and what not. Now that Winter Break is coming up, and I recently was rewarded a new tablet from Tom, I got inspiration and decided to revive this collab.
This time I won't be so easy though. In the last thread, I was rather lazy and not so strict with the collab, but this time -- I'm going to enforce to see some progress, as well as other things involving the collab. To review what we once had, I'll mock up some things from the old thread.
In this collab, you will have an option to animate any Newgrounds characters and starring roles in animations across the portal. Some examples are; Pico from Pico's School or maybe even, Bitey from Brackenwood.
The parts will be based upon the animations in the Newgrounds Series pages. Or maybe even things apart of Newgrounds, Like Cat Dynamics or the Portal System (the bots?) Just be unique.
Now it's time to touch up specs in which are needed, such as deadlines, co-authorship, as well as what our FPS and Flash settings will be.
^ You are required to create an animation in which is based on a Newgrounds character, or Animation Series which lives on Newgrounds. Great examples are; There She Is! Blockhead!
* We honestly want to stay as much away from dialogue as possible. Which means, sounds or voicework, but there will be an exception if your part REALLY needs to involve dialogue. But the short silent film, is what we're aiming for.(I'm still iffy on this. If you make a really good dialogue part, this most likely will change.!)
* We really don't want to allow the robot clock voices either.
* No half-assed animations.
* You must be able to show a really good example of your Flash Animating Skill to be qualified to submit a piece. We really don't want any noobs taking the spot for a possible good animation parody.
* Have fun !
Adobe Flash Document Properties:
Background Color: White(default)
Frame rate: 24 FPS
The sound and audio for this collaboration will be decided all in all by the people taking part in the collab. I don't quite have a set track in the right set of mind at the moment -- But at a further date, we'll have a nice little poll on which audio track will be decided for our ending collab.
To prevent further interruption or problems, I would appreciate it if when you send in your collab piece, that you will send me a Flash 8 Format file. I can not work with CS3 files due to the lack of the program. Only submit Flash 8 work. Thank you.
Another thing, please avoid using names of your Movie clip, and symbols as "Tween 1" or "Symbol 1." Use a unique name, such as "Rudy_01." So it'll prevent any further editing of names, it'll help out alot. Thank you for that as well.
The Co-Authors will be determined by your animation skill. The best animator of the bunch will be selected to be co-authored. So if you're aiming for a spot, please take your time on your part and earn the right spot. There are 9-spots for Co-authoring -- So I apologize for whom don't get a nice spot. I'll announce the people whom get coed at a further date, when the collab is actually completed and files(parts) are finally turned in.
Every author will have a affiliated name which will link to their Newgrounds page, as their part is playing, so people can be directly brought to their artists page. I will also need a little subtext from you as the artist since I am going to have a "THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN" Section, so if you don't send me one -- You just won't get a part in that little fun thing.
The first deadline is going to be set for February 14th, 2009. (Valentines Day.) SO PLEASE, Get your work out in time. That gives us about 2 months to work on this thing.
Just let's wrap this collab up, and see where it heads. I can't leave this back in 2008, I have to bring it up to reach 2009. So let's get this baby on the road again!
