Short Collab!!!
« on: February 05, 2010, 01:00:25 am »

I call dibs on Director, and I'll model some stuff.
Characters:
Brian, a young 10 year old boy and the main character.
Lilly, a small hundred year old fairy.
King (working name) Pike, the king of the (working name) Snowlands.
Consultant, an old underfed man working for the king.

   Brian is looking at a snow globe when his mom turns off the light in his room. He falls asleep with the snow globe in his hand. He awakens at midnight to find he is in a snow land. He walks around a little while, and meets a snow fairy named Lilly. Lilly brings him to the castle where he meets the king. Brian requests a way home, but the consultant comes in and tells the king that the Snowlands have ran out of Norbs, ‘the magic hairballs’. While trying to find the magic thief, Brian is also doing work for the king as payment for letting him go home in the future. Brian awakens in the middle of the night in the castle, seeing a glowing light coming from a few rooms down the hall. When he investigates, he finds that the Consultant has stolen all of the Norbs from near towns and cities and is using them for some evil scheme. Brian turns the Consultant in. He is decided guilty over theft in a court scene, and the kings has the Norbs bring Brian home. Brian awakens, at home, with the snow globe in his hand. THE END.
 OR
A guy, James Sidney on the side of IGRA is in a small space craft sent to infiltrate the Dimension base, but is blasted out of the sky. He lands on Oaran (Or-ahn) where he cataloges many plants and animals. He meets a strange, crazy robot named N.E.D. (Netrix E-working-  DioRoid). James fixes Ned, whom in turn fixes James' ship overnight, and James flys back to IGRA. The let back on this story is that I don't know where Dimension comes into the storyline. A few of VERY MANY models for this one are attached.

i think you need a few more details. and you need to post what youve come up with right away. ive already started modeling and started writing a story. my main concern right now is what kind of story is it? is it a sad sob drama? a goofy comedy? what general style do you want the art? how long do you expect the animation to be? will there be alot a little or no dialogue?

pretty much any kind of details would help.

and on a personal note i hope alot of people sign up for this. ive seen many projects like this start or attempt to start. but i dont think ive ever seen anything come close to completion.

I'm considering joining your project, however I think there should be at least one creepy / bad aspect of it (rather than it all being just "happy")

eg. first thing that springs to mind is a crack in the "frozen wonderland" leading to a more grotesque / horrific underground / dark area.

My imagination is running!

yea i thought of the same thing while i was writing a script. i stopped writing because i dont know which direction dav wants to go. that and i dont know how long he wants it to be. but the jist of what i was writing goes somethin like this.

kid is in his room staring at a snowglobe with a castle inside. he falls asleep with it in his hand. he wakes up in the middle of nowhere in a snowstorm. he wonders around till he collapses and before he blacks out a "snowfairy" appears. he wakes up in her hut. they babble on about whats going on and how to get back and whatnot.

this is where i go hung up. it can go in a number of directions here. he could end up at the castle and has to defeat some monster type guy to get home. or the fairy can simply take him to the castle and find a way back home from there. like talk to the king or something.

my whole thing revolves around the snowglobe castle. but theres a number of ways to go about it. i dont want to just make up a story if someone already has one.

im just trying to get an idea of what to start modeling. i started modeling the snowfairy, but i think i can only do the head. im not so good with bodies.

1 more thing. if you want this to be a little more private so we dont ruin it for any1 who wants to see it. there are simple alternatives. + i think over time a forum posting would get 2 jumbled and unorganized.

OKay, i got one. basing off of where rellik left off, there's a bad guy who is the kings consultant, and the kid and the fairy go to the castle, and the consultant doens't want outsiders in, so they go defeated him and get home.

works for me. now we need a discription of the enemy so we can start modeling it.  it can be a completly made up creature or it could be like a wolf or a troll or something.

edit:

i read that wrong my bad. i dont think that would work that well. it could be the kings consultant but the "dont let outsiders in" wont work. u gotta look at the cause and effect of things. if you think about it the kid just goes in where hes not wanted in the 1st place then just beats up or kills some1.

i think it would be better if they go to the king for help. but he cant help because thier "magic powers" are running low. and no1 can figure out why. but the kid and fairy figure out that it is the kings consultant sneaking around and stealing magic or something. so once the kid and fairy capture or defeat the consultant. they save the kingdom and he gets to go home.

Ah, sorry to say this but if these ideas are set already in your minds I can't be part of the project. Lets just say I prefer a more origional story. No offence to either of you.
