Challenge #35: Talent Show
« on: July 25, 2020, 12:31:27 pm »

Maybe this has been done before, but what about a team based challenge. Everyone has their strengths when it comes to Anim8or, so why not collaborate?

I'm still working the idea in my head, but what I was thinking is to make a 2 to 5 minute episode based on a suggested topic.

Steve here: I split the topic to form Challenge #35.

One idea that I had is called "Talent Show". It's a sequence of short acts by various "talented" people/animals/whatever in a theater. The curtain opens for each funny, silly, or otherwise entertaining bit. So the segment between each act is the same, with the act's name and such followed by the curtain opening.

Since Anim8or now supports sound, even that part could be done within Anim8or!

Perhaps this "Talent Show" should be put on a Yuotube channel. Could publicize it through social media and maybe have people vote on the best act.

The talent show sounds interesting...We can pick a few ideas from actual talent shows like "America/Britain Got Talent" then each person could make a short clip limited to several seconds.

I pretty mush only do sci-fi stuff, though I have delved into other genres.

So how do we go about doing this?

How I though it might work is that there is one common shot of the curtain opening in front of a stage after showing the name of the next performer or performers, with the act on the stage. Then each contributor makes a scene with whatever act they want on the stage. Each act ends with the curtain closing, probably with applause :), and the title of the next act comes on, on is on a placard, etc.

So to do this we first need the common stage, curtain, lighting and such. At least the layout. Then everyone can start thinking about their act.

Note: the stage setting can be completely different. In fact it doesn't even need to be a proper stage. When the curtain opens we can show anything, outer space, the beach, interiors of buildings. You get the idea.

How does that sound?

Well its a start .I am sure someone can improve on that . The top needs rucheying or whatever you call it.
Just a quick go at the curtain animation. Plus i am far from an expert on materials. But included the files for novices really .I used to love getting users files when i started using this marvellous thing that is ANim8or.

There's no shame in grabbing creative commons textures. Probably 80% of the textures I use are CC.

While I like the talent show concept and I want to be a part of that, I had another idea.

Who knows what the television season will be like with this whole Corona virus plaguing the world. I certainly ran out of things I enjoy watching, so I was thinking of doing a "season" or "mini series" or maybe an anthology series to pass the time. I still playing around with the "Some Guy in Space," and itching to get some vocal talent to do some voice over work. Maybe collaborate with other Anim8or enthusiasts to make the series or whatever better.
