To kick start discussion off, we’re lowering our expectations of length of the film down to 45-60mins. Of course, this in the minimum and there is no maximum.

And we’re sticking with 15fps or animators will just go nuts if it’s anymore. Not that they weren’t nuts to begin with :P

What walk cycle are we doing? I’m best at the 5 frame walk but that’s weird(Hazzat :P ) and most people do the 4 frame or 6 frame.

This is what I was doing when I was doing stop-motion, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHJdCjzsP8I

I think that’s the 4 frame walk cycle, it seems a bit fast so maybe the 6 frame walk cycle would be best but I don’t know if I’ve seen one so maybe someone should do a test? :P

4 is too fast, so I’d say 6 would be best.

Does anyone have a 6 frame walk cycle shot at 15fps?

I would like to be an aninamtor for the big movie, but I don’t know if I could, as I am ignorant of many computer things, such as how to upload videos on here, etc.
I have been a brickfilmer for a while, my animating surpasses many people’s. The only problem is that I am not really good at knowing when to switch the camera, what angle, when to pan or zoom,etc. My walking is almost just like Smeagol’s, though.
Also, When will there be a casting call? I would really like to voice somone. One of the reasons I became a brickfilmer was to someday have my name on the big screen. I don’t know if i’m getting :o fftopic: and if I am, i’m really sorry. I don’t know where else to post this.

Just watch this site for when we re-issue the call for animators. In the mean time, you could try showing us your animations so we can help you if necessary :)

I think the length of the rough draft is around 75 pages, which is about an hour and fifteen minutes of screen time. The final script will be a tad longer, though, as there are some parts that I’d like extended.

Ok, check out my video and tell me what you think. It’s just a quick sword fight, and it’s not my application. I’m still working on that, and will post it in the actual application post. You’ll notice the glitch I’m having problems with if you watch the time bar when it stops before it reaches the end and the video has already played through. Anyways, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h44wDL04-gs

That was actually a good clip.

Although you might want to work on keeping the camera steady and smoothing out you animation a bit more but you’re on the right track!

Huh? I don’t see any wobbling in the clip. The zoom out was a bit unsteady, but that was it.

Thanks! My animation is usually smoother than that. I made that clip in less than 5 minutes.

There was a lot of light flicker. The animation was pretty good, though.
