Calling all artists, writers, lurkers, and invisible bears: Have you ever wanted to make your own animated short?
Well now you will have that chance. Introducing the first Pixelton Jam Session.
What do you get?- To see your idea come to life by professional animators!- Be part in making a great community animation- YOUR NAME in the credits- The ability to toss this on a resume/or to gloat to friends
What do you need to do? (Anything you’d like!)- Share your funny ideas- Write a story- Create a cartoon/gag to use in the story- Design a character- Draw a background- Do anything fun and creative and share it!
Or you can share this with friends so they can have a chance to join in!
We’re starting with a blank story slate, except that somehow the story needs to include Fil and Kirby as they start a journey in the fictional tropics of Pixelton.
Everything else is for for you to create. For us to create together. We’ll keep plugging away until we submit a full concept with storyboards to a professional animation crew to complete the project. And to help you out click on the links below to download jpeg images or vector illustrator files of Kirby and Fil. You can use them to play with, or to script your ideas to share with everyone. Or play with only.
And I’ll play referree to keep pushing the project forward, fil in the gaps, do storyboards, etc. Easy peasy to create a fun animation for all to enjoy.
How will we vote on the best ideas? How will we share ideas? I have a few plans but any last minute thoughts or suggestion you guys have to make this better would be great.Also, new comic coming for Tuesday (tomorrow). Yay!
