Finish My Story - My New Animation

Hello n00bz,

I realized I haven't been really much into the animation scene for quite sometime now, so I decided to whip up a fun little idea that will involve the whole Newgrounds community. I'm going to give you a beginning to a script -- it's basically going to be a starting setting for the story/animation and you have to finish it. I'll update the script occasionally in the thread once I pick, which part I like best and we will go from there.

Everyone has a chance to have their idea into the animation, just think of something clever and I'll use it.

The story is going to start off with the following:

"The story starts off with a little toy stuck inside a child's room. It looks sad and lonely as it wishes for freedom, and non-restraint from the boundaries of this room. He crawls up out of the toybox, climbing over the lifeless toys surrounding him and lands onto the floor.

Suddenly, he hears a large bang and you see a view of him, trembling with fear as he turns around to see what caused the noise... As his eyes expand, you see the figure that made the noise...."

------------
Now it's your turn to finish writing the story, where I left off. You have to write the next part of this animation. So what made this noise? And why is the little toy trembling in fear, because of this? Leave your most creative responses in the thread, and I'll pick the best ones once a day, and we will have a full script for an animation to create soon.

After the script is completed, I will begin the story boarding and creating this animation. So let's make this fun and the most entertaining film as possible. I thought this was a great idea, so I decided to put it into works. I don't know if this should be in the writing forums or Flash forums, so I just left it here.

I'll also release stills and story board art, during the course of the writing process to keep it more entertaining. So let's begin, and express your ideas for the continuation to this story. :) Thank you!

"The figure recovers from the its crouch after jumping to the floor. It is a dirty being, filled with neglect in every inch of its body. But it is obvious that it was a toy. Scorch marks line its chest from the waste up to the chin. Cuts and scratches mark the arms and legs like stripes on a tiger. The size of the figure makes the little toy look like a cub in a lion's den. The mere look of ferocity in the face of this toy gives the little toy fear. The beast walks up to the litlle toy, points and opens its mouth to speak."

I can't really think of anything else at the moment.

I've decided on the continuation to the story:

Ryabov says:

That person should be Luis. He takes the toy to a sack and then bring it to some kind of factory, where all the toys are digitizing to his movies. That's how Luis creates such plausible personages - he just kills real things, turning them into his animated slaves.

So we've got a villain :D

So as Luis takes this toy to the factory, what happens next? Here's a screenshot below of some art that I just whipped together of Luis. :)

As Luis takes the toy to the factory...a giant squid tentacle rises from the ground. Slowly, this giant monster crawls out of the pit that it has created for itself. As the monster reveals itself, you see that it has the body of a grizzly bear and the tail of a dragon! It's face resembles no other animal that's been witnessed by man! This 100 story tall creature spreads its wings and begins to fly while knocking over other buildings! Luis must drop everything he's doing and destroy this gigantic beast! He finds a conveniently placed potion, drinks it, and grows to be 101 stories tall! An epic battle ensues!


I laugh at your sigs!

I decided on the next part...

The little toy is dropped out of the sack
he is on a conveyer belt and around him he sees other toys lifelessly moving on other conveyer belts toward a large glowing box(attached to the conveyer belt). As the toy watches in fear a doll enters the box and a bright light explodes from it.
on the other side of the box a lot of long cords attach the box to a computer where Luis is already working on an animation. Theres a close-up on the screen and it shows the doll being printed out onto the program. And thats where he begins to animate.
The toy stands up and sees the approaching box in front of him (all boxes are linked to the one computer)

So what happens next? What happens to the toy on the conveyor belt? Does he escape? Does another toy help him? Does Luis interfere? Fill it in. Let's continue writing.

So far this is what we got.

- A toy wakes up in a room, all alone, and wishes for freedom.
- As he climbs out of a toy box with toys all around him, he hears a loud noise behind him.
- Behind him is Luis, and Luis is furious about the toy trying to escape.
- Luis takes the toy and puts him into a sack and brings him to a factory.
- The toy is placed on a conveyor belt, which is linked to a huge computer.
- Time is running out as the big computer approaches the toy. What will he do? How will he escape?
