Smash Bros. Collab! 2018-08-11 15:03:15 Reply

Following the release of the Dragonball Z collab a few months ago, we were super happy with the turnout from entries and the accumulated views from the site video +YT uploads. We were able to shake the internet with Newgrounds style, and now we’re lookin’ to go above and beyond with the Ultimate Collab.

Announcing the, Newgrounds Smash Bros. Collab!

We want to use a diverse array of characters, so try to cross reference the character excel sheet and keep your choices varying. We’d like to not have 40 Mario cartoons, and we’re leaning towards 6 uses of a character but exceptions are allowed.

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 or not and send you an invite to the Discord Server.

Don’t take it personally if you don’t make it in, 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!

APPLICATION: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bKaKLtYY84MXfGNWQYnk7sAAhn8-m7ykvwiNeRvV5hM

SPECS
Length: 10-60 seconds*
Frame rate: 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 November 7th

- We’d like to accomplish this collab in a reasonable timeframe BY the game’s release and we need time to edit this collab.

GUIDELINES / NOTES

- Must be set in Smash universe (does not have to be about fighting)

- No Brawl Taunts

- Nudity/sexual themes are fine, but no intercourse or penetration; we need to keep it M not A. (Nintendo will shut this down)

- Characters must come from franchises covered in the Smash series (Original-Ultimate)

- Any character not from Smash must be from an established video game franchise (i.e. Banjo & Geno, OK! Shrek & Naruto, NO!)

- Try to avoid meme-ish and overly technical jokes (show it, don’t tell), low hanging fruit has been done before

- You will not be the first person to attempt a Waluigi cartoon

- Try to keep it at least loosely focused on the character(s) you choose (you and your friends are not smash characters)

- Once you know which characters you want to use, update us so we can create an excel sheet for everyone to cross reference so we can achieve including all the characters!

- If you have concerns about your ideas and the rules (these aren't as picky as they sound), contact us in the Discord about it!

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. Humor/skill are the key factors in winning submissions, every entry is given the same chance.

Can't you just run the collabs like they used to be.

This whole applying before hand thing was bullshit during the dbz collab which led to it not even being in the same region of quality as the old school collabs even if it has arguably better animation.

@Blounty I think the best way to go around this if you don't have a great demo reel sitting by is to just work on a submission as if you got accepted on your own and then see if you can submit a bit longer before the deadline so you can see if you can get worked in somewhere. At this time this is the best way of making sure quality matches up.

Perhaps if I have time, and by some divine intervention come up with a good enough joke.

The old way leads to a bunch of people making parts that ultimately don't get in, they toil for months only to find out afterwards they aren't part of the collab if there's no application process. Just leaves a bunch of people sour they didn't make it in and spent all that time on it

lol sorry Ozone, I was actually really fearful in the days leading up that a collab would spring up. But don't let this stop you from making one!

We did end up letting in some submissions that did this, although one person wound up not getting in

Shit it's almost like you laid it out as a contest, even has 10 prize winners and all. Seems kinda strange to do that but also only allow certain people you choose to participate.

Pretty sure we wouldn't have got some of the funniest but badly animated gems from the old collabs if they had vetoed them before hand as well.

Sweet, a new collab! I'm keen to make some backgrounds and team up again.

If you're an animator who's been accepted and want some free backgrounds done, hit me up!

Here's a few examples of previous BGs I've done for various other collabs and jams:

They're open until the collab is ready to come out, even if we're 3 days away from done if you can make a cartoon in that time and get accepted, you're in!

Hi. Is it okay that I can make a collab entry with Source Filmmaker 3D animation? Or does it has to be 2D animated?

Just saying, if anyone needs a Sonic the Hedgehog or Wario voice, I'll gladly provide. I'm a voice actor, too.
