So we have until late October to produce a short doco on TLMP no more than 10 minutes in length.

This would go a long way for us if we won. $2,000 AU to be precise.

We need to start talking about what to include in this documentary.

I’ll let you guys start talking as you’re all about to get online as I’m about to go bed in an hour or so.

What you guys who want to contribute need is a decent camera that will record at atleast 640×480 resolution and be able to send me the films for cutting together.

I think we should draw up some concept art and storyboard panels that we’d be able to edit into the film so we actually have something to show from the project.

If by chance we have voice actors by then, it’d be neat if we could put their voices over the storyboards so the audience would have an idea of what the finished project could look like. Kind of like an animatic, but it wouldn’t be animated.

You and I could also film ourselves talking about the project.

Ya, I intend people to talk about their rolls in the project. You and I mostly obviously.

I would also like some concept sets done in terms of art, but the story board idea with the actors is a good one. Some clips of people’s finished other work would also go down well so people could see what it looks like when it’s done.

Also, we should have a “how we do it” as well just showing the basics.

We’ll need to pick a director for the actual project it would seem for this.

Sorry if this seems a little incomplete, I just came back from my first sparring match and though I only got hit once (in the head) it seems to have done it’s job fairly well :P

I could probably contribute animatics if we happened to get that far. I’d like to think I’m a fair artist, but I’ll leave that up to the overseer to decide.
The prize is certainly enticing, with that sort of money we could buy any specialized pieces needed, a few cameras, and what have you. Of course, as said, we still need something to show. Let’s just make sure we don’t rush anything simply for the sake of this though.
Also, perhaps it would be useful to have a list of questions for people to answer so no one gets too in depth about anything that isn’t really going to be pertinent to the actual documentary?

Agreed on the questions list. I’ll start thinking up some questions, if anyone wants to suggest some you’re more than welcome

Ok, so here’s what you need to film you guys in this order.

Your name (screen name if you wish to remain anonymous) and where you come from (don’t get anymore specific than country and state/region)

Your role in the project, try to expand on it as much as possible as I will be cutting this down so don’t worry about going on too long.

And film yourself carrying out your role, IE: if you want to be an actor then mess about with the script or if you want to be an animator then show yourself shooting some random stop-mo.

I’ll be talking a lot about the project and could quite possibly take up half the film.

If you think anything else should be added, feel free to speak up!

Let’s get this done!

EDIT: and some concept stills would be great as well!

Goodo, remember to shoot as much as you can. The audience or anyone else doesn’t want to listen to me talk for ten whole minutes :P

Who is allowed to participate in this? Am I? If so, do you just want me to make a video of myself animating, or make a drawing of the characters? I can draw pretty well. I’ve been told I’m a darned natural at it, though I’ve never had a lesson in my life(or at not least one that tought me anything).

I’ll talk about the story and stuff, mostly, without giving away any spoilers. I’ll see if the other writers would like to participate as well.

okay that’ll do perfectly! i will print off a copy of the script and ramble for “gosh who knows how long” (i can really ramble) and you can pick out the useful stuff!! if you want i can also “pretend to be an animator just so you have some more variety!”

p.s my animating skills have increased since the last time i applied http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITd3l3p6 … annel_page
