    Storyboarding is more important in animation than in other methods of filming.
    Even if not everybody does it, it should be mentioned, as it’s a very good way to plan out your shots.

    Fail. Don’t bash my employer. :P PBS and boring do not belong in the same sentence. Anyway…

    I agree storyboarding should have it’s own episode. Set building might even require several episodes. There is a lot that can be said about it.

    Whatever happens, these episodes should definitely be put on YouTube so we can direct newbies to them instead of answering endless repeated questions.

    I like the format of the old ones, with a character explaining things rather than a narrator, as this is more fun to watch.

    -Smeagol, who notes that Crown of Syracuse was shown on a local PBS station.

    That’s why I’m not going to set any standards to how the lesson is taught.

    Any thoughts on allowing more than one video of a lesson be made? Unnecessary and repetitive? Or allows more animators to contribute to a lesson?

    That would be good because we could see other animators different approaches to whatever the topic, and how they would teach it. That way each video about the same thing wouldnt include the same old thing.

    Really? That’s pretty cool.

    They should, plus a lot of new people would rather watch movies than read an article.
    Oh yes, and about set design, for whoever ends up doing it:
    Please try and show how to do it in a way that doesn’t require a ton of bricks, because obviously not everyone has that.
    EDIT: Oh yes, and when you say narrated, do you mean with a minfigure talking the whole time, or just someone saying stuff? Thanks.

    I disagree. When you post video on YouTube, you consign distribution rights to them for whatever purpose they wish. Brickfilms should retain control of the distribution of ALL its community projects.

    I think cooperation between the parties should be highly encouraged. In cases of multiple entries covering the same topic, perhaps a better approach would be to have the project team choose one or the other.

    Oh, never mind then.

    I’m in.

    There should be a THAC prep episode.

    I could do scriptwriting. I’m very familiar with the format of scripts.

    This sounds like an awesome idea. I’ve always wanted to make one of these, and I would love to participate.

    BTW, Blunty’s animation class film was about frames per second, so you can cross that off your list.

    I’ll find a YouTube link for Blunty’s tommorrow.

    -MMM
