Dragonball Z Collab! 2017-11-03 16:56:00


It’s been far too long since we’ve hosted an OFFICIAL collab on the site, but after talking about it for a while, we’re ready to get the wheels rolling!

With the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ game coming out, we’re celebrating with an all new, official, Dragon Ball Z Flash Collab!! Call your girlfriend and let her know you’ll be a shut in for a while, cause the best new thing just sprung up. With a large roster of stellar animators on board, AND a large pool of prizes for entrants, this is gonna shape up to be a pinnacle of web content. This is open to any Newgrounds members ready to dogpile on this behemoth of a collab project!

APPLYING
We’re opening submissions to the community on a selective basis, while there’s a roster of people on board already, we’d like to give people the opportunity to join as well. You can apply by submitting your Username/Email/Demo Reel OR best sample of your work through our Google forms, we’ll then let you know if you’ve been accepted and send you an invite to the Discord Server.

Don’t take it personally if you don’t hear back, we’ll probably host this again next year so there’s always another chance to get in!

If you’re new to Newgrounds, set up an account and dump your content in!

SPECS
Length: 15-60 seconds*
Framerate: 24fps
Dimensions: 1920x1080 **
Format: MP4

*semi flexible
**if pure vector art, file can be upscaled in swivel. But maintain 16:9 ratio

DEADLINE
- Submissions are due by JANUARY 15th*
- No one likes when collabs drag ooooooon for eternity and beyond, we want to be able to release this just before the game’s release. MUST be submitted on the 15th or sooner.

GUIDELINES / NOTES
- Keep it pertaining to Dragon Ball Z and relevant to that subject, doesn’t need to be geared directly for the upcoming game and show references are welcome!

- Plenty of sagas to choose from http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Ball_Z#Sagas

- Humor focused collab, this isn’t a Twitter GIF where you do 100 impact frame sakuga animations. While action isn’t prohibited, make sure it’s involved in the joke so this doesn’t become just a showcase of just fight scenes. AGAIN, action is allowed, comedy is a must.

- Yes, we’re all familiar with Dragonzball Peepee but try not to be derivative of that parody. No shitty memes / low hanging fruit! Be fresh and use your own special flavor in it.

- Have fun with what you’re doing! Make something you’re proud of and enjoy.

- Progress can be shared but hold off on posting your full pieces til the collab is released. Keep it more screenshots / gifs.

- Work with any character you’d like, doesn’t have to default to Goku and Vegeta automatically!

-This really isn’t as picky as it sounds, generally you’re free to create whatever you want, key things are just humor / originality.

SUBMISSION
You can email your finished submission to collabs@newgrounds.com

Submissions will be judged fairly amongst (list of judges), votes are not based on status/personal affiliations. Humour/skill are the key factors in winning submissions, every entry is given the same chance.

Really good to see. Nothing I could get involved in but I'm always happy to see more happening on NG. Make it amazing, fellas.


Just some dork who's loved NG since 2004, yet isn't very artistic himself. You should check out my massive favorites lists.

I could also help with drawing objects but you have to cut everything out yourself.

If it was a Dragon Ball collab then I would be 100% in. Dragon Ball Z on the other hand, I've seen too many parodies to think of anything. :/

Response to Dragonball Z Collab! 2017-11-03 19:10:37


How many slots are there? Or is it open to as many people who make it past the application process?

One time Smash Mouth tweeted out my art.

Response to Dragonball Z Collab! 2017-11-04 01:16:24


I'm interested in participating!
Currently I'm learning flash and traditional animation, but I am better at the latter.
I would like to know if traditional animation, with the frames compiled in Flash, is allowed as well?

We actually just binged 12 episodes of DBZ earlier today. I'd be down to do a scene.

Response to Dragonball Z Collab! 2017-11-04 09:24:00


Awesome! Sounds really fun!
Man... we're finally getting a new Newgrounds collab after all these years

I've never watch Dragon Ball Z do I have to binge watch the shitty 80s crap? Or can I go straight to the new show

Response to Dragonball Z Collab! 2017-11-04 12:14:37


WOOO! I'm crazy excited for this one!

I need to get my computer working again to try and put my Wacom to work! Otherwise I will be happy to provide voices for this! All those voice workshops with Funimation crew should pay off!


Need a voice actor? Check out my site. For the last 2 years I've been taking classes from official FUNimation crew members.

Response to Dragonball Z Collab! 2017-11-04 13:48:55


A) Are smut submissions allowed? (comedic of course)
B) Will smut submissions be eligible to enter the contest?
C) What's the protocol on non vector work such as: Painted backgrounds
Painted Stills
ooo ooo Raster animation (Verve, Photoshop, Clipstudio, TVpaint)
ooo ooo Pixel animation [Easytoon, Paint]
3D or stop motion
oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Live action Hybrids

D){asking cause I found this odd but any reward is extremely generous and greatly appreciated} What's up with the rewards? All of these rewards are great but it's a bit awkward how things are organized. For example if somebody really wants a penicorn but they know they can't make first place because so and so is in it they have to shoot either for second or 4 or 5 in order to get it? Also the first place doesn;t get a supporter status.

I would heavily like to clarify that this question is to clear things up, not to mock the rewards. A god damn hard rock cafe coupon for a cheezburger sounds like an overwhelming reward for a collab prize hundreds of dollars is something huge. In addition it's 100% obvious yet I will still state this that anybody who wants to participate should do it for the fun not the money or rewards

E) What kinda file you need the final film in? do you want it as an mp4? swf? gif? vhs? film? casette? floppydisk?lazerdisk? flv? avi?

F) Can my submission end in a chala head chala or are the theme songs reserved only for the end and start (a part of the punchline not as credits or anything)

G) Who decides the order? Is it gonna be decided afterwards or is it a: XX submitted first BB submitted second

H) Can you submit more than one entry

I)If you can submit more than one entry does only one count towards the reward? do you have to choose which one? preemptively or does it just include everyone and any double up of prizes will count only once for the better one?

J) How much smut is allowed? Is stamper level stuff the limit (where it's fucking but it's not really porn and bearly anything is showing) or can we go full Zone on this?

K) How late can I join? I'm currently full time on the Robot day things I'm working on and I won't be free to join untill Mid December, would that be an option or is there a wall

L) Can I join now and start later in that type of situation or do you prefer not to reserve seats?

M) Can you get Chris Sabat to narrate the intro and name list?

This is probably alot of questions but I just need to know

Goodluck with the collab and thanks
-Gabriel

Got ya covered: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nYozPLpJRE&index=1&list=PL6EC7B047181AD013

^^^^^

This is the abridged Series, it has about half of dragonballZ (~4000 minutes) cut down to (~720) about a fifth of that, which would be 12 hours or 6 hours if you are on 2x speed. You can also watch the whole thing on youtube at twice speed and skipping around anything boring cause there's alooooot of filler and they talk super slow. You could easily knock the whole series in less than a day theoretically.
