    Short Animated Film: Concepts

    Hello!

    My Name is Carl and I am working on a Short 3D Animated film with 28 other volunteers, and are looking for a bit of help in the 2D department.

    Itís a sci-fi film about the human race fighting for survival after earth is destroyed by an evil alien race. The humans are forced into an unknown part of the galaxy, where they must rebuild their civilization and prepare for the final showdown with the Alien Race.

    Right now we are looking for anyone that is talented with mechanical design and environments. If you think you could contribute to the project, please donít hesitate to send me an e-mail at darkvortex@dimensionproductions.com and/or visit our forums at www.dimensionproductions.com/dvforums

    Thanks!

    -Carl

    sounds like a great chance for an up coming concept artist to get there feet wet, and gain expiriance working with a team.
    i worked on a simalar project called F8 while i was in school, and it plated a big part in getting me where i am now.
    good luck!

    Thanks,

    The main idea of this project is for people to develop their skill while working within a team. We have experienced and beginners on our team, all contributing to the film.

    what type of style are you looking for? and how long would the film last.

    i could maybe help with the alien concepts. i would like to, but it depends on what skill level your looking for.


    sounds like a cool project.

    Cool, It'll be quite interesting to have a look at the existing concept art for this project.

    What interests me is the concept work for the 6 Star Wars films, especially the Ep I art.

    Whens the deadline? Like are you planning to do this in the next month or do you have like 6 months? Cause im too tied up in other projects right now, it sounds like a great oppertunity however. Ill gladly help, but i have no time for the next month or so, after that i have all the free time in the world. What i really wanna do is practice some storyboarding skills, and this is the only oppertunity ive ever really had to do that apart from my own little projects, ill do concepts and other production art to. But ide be glad to be your storyboard man. Hopefully i will have picked up a bunch more stuff in austin (i.e dan milligan as far as storyboarding goes) .

    We Plan on having the film completed by the end of 2004, so the deadline is quite far away. tHe film is set to be about 15-20 minutes, but that may chnage when the script is finalized.

    If you want to help out, send me an e-mail with some example work, and i'll get back to you as quickly as i can.

    Unfortunately i dont have any work that i can show you right now, but soon enough i will have some images.

    Does your group have experience working together, and working on a group project? I went to animation school, and was involved with 2 different group projects, one that got done, and one that failed. I'd be happy to pass along some info I learned if you are relatively new to this...

    I get that feeling when you say you haven't finished a script and you want 15-20 minutes by the end of the year....you know how long animation takes, right?

    I am still waiting for the final version of the script, but that does not mean that work hasent begun on the film. we've pretty much been working on the film for 3 months.

    Feel free to pass along any information that you wish, just drop me an e-mail or PM, and we'll talk!

    *bump*

    For anyone who has any doubt, this group are both serious about getting this completed, and more importantly, all seem to be good people who are willing to offer help and advice in all aspects of design.

    But I mean seriously, I don't need to tell you that, Androids recommendation should be all you need!
