Status suggestion - STICKY IN PROGRESS

Post by WalleyWaltzie on Fri Jan 08, 2010 3:09 am

Since this forum is mostly focus on a project, many people might join your forum and hoping to see more from this forum. To keep more attention and prevent them for stop giving up hope of this project, you have to make something more attractive. For example, like your working status.

- Example -
Storyboard: 95%
Animation: 67%
Colouring: 70%
Voice-acting: 100%
Scene-cutting: 20%

It's worth to make a thread like this, or even post these on 'home'. So this project won't be see as 'born dead' instead of 'looking forward'.

What do you guys think?

Now this is a good idea. Example per episode we could do this. But what is meant by scene cutting? Plus there is no accurate way of measuring the exact percent. So they could estimate just like how a fansub group does it.

This ain't a bad idea. I will discuss it with my boss.

If we decide to go with this, expect it to be up in a few days.

I think this a really, really great idea! Like this, we don't just tell other people that we are doing stuff and all, we also keep ourselves in check and inform people and also ourselves of our progress. This would keep slacking and all to a minimumC:

Well, if we were to do that, the only thing we'd have as of now is 'Storyboard: 10%' XD

I referred a scriptwriter to beatsan and he accepted him. Though I don't know how they auditioned.

@Joy: 10% of storyboarding? That's really not bad. I'm assuming the 100% is chapter 1 and 2 of course. Who's doing the storyboarding? Either way its good progress is made.

At least for the meantime, shen will be working on the script, until we find our real scriptwriters, that is. Or at least for the first chapter/episode. the last time i asked him, he said he was one minute into the script, so hopefully he's made more progress in itXD I know I'm kinda rushing him a bit and all but it's the first episode, and the most important one because people will gauge our standards based on it and if we take too long of a people will think that this project is all talk and no show. We wouldn't want that, would we? (sorry if my sentences string together weirdlyXD; just woke up<w<;;; )

And temporarily until we find a good storyboard artist, I'll be taking on that role. I'm really redoing the storyboards this time based on shen's script (plus this time I'm gonna do it seriously, the last one I did was too rough><) so I'll actually say storyboard, 0% done for now to be honest:P

Yes 1st impressions are most important. But speaking of the script there may have been some lacks in communication since beatsan said he has the script done. He told me all that is really needed for the script are the conversations since the storyboard will portray everything else. But I won't urge that topic any more so confusion won't arise, just to caution that everyone should be sure of their roles first.

Oh as for this idea of a status update. Why don't we make one of those sticky threads with only the percentages? and another sticky thread for all the confirmed members of the management teams?

The way Shen had showed the first script example, it seemed like a written version of what the storyboard would become. It just provides another perspective on how it's all supposed to be visualized.

Would it be ok to see a copy of that sample? I do like to see what the script looks like.

Well music-wise... I'd say it's about 0% done XD. But never fear! The music team is actually holding a discussion today on what we're going to do.

Clicky! It was from a while ago, back in the infancy of this project.

Hey guys. I know this is old, but it seems like a good idea.

Stay on topic too.

I suggest this be done, and put in the Progress forums as a sticky, to show those who come by our progress thus far.

Agreement? pikachu

Agreed. So someone should actually sticky it and this idea should totally be put into practice. It's a pretty awesome idea to say the least so I'm bumping this thread to remind everyione of its existence. Smile

I had an idea of doing something like this sometime back, but not with percentages, just a more practical "this is what we've done" appraoch. Doing percentages is not really possible.

I think I will make somethign like this (unless someone has beaten me to it) over this coming week. I'd do it now, but I'm lazy.

Well for a single episode, first we need a script. Then storyboarders put the visualization of that srcipt into pictures, thinking up the camera shots, expressions and the general flow of the anime (that's my job). Then it's handed over to the real animators who do an animatic of the thing, adding and taking away panels as necessary before sending it off for the lineartists. Around this point though the VAs step and do their bit. Then the lineartists draw the frames in thin line, then its sent back to the animators who actually animate it all so effectively we now have the the anime with the voices but no colour or bgm. Then it's sent off to the colouring team and/or music team who begin to work on their music/sfx/colours and then voila! An episode.

At least I THINK that's how it goes....bit unsure about the whole going back and forth between animators and illustators though...I'm kinda confused myself actually @_@

Um, the episode yeah, but not the opening...

Anyways, try and be on-topic kay John? ^^

So Supernova...Were you gonna make something this thread could use? Oh, wait, I can't ask that...but I've got a week off now so have you finished the miniscripts for Blue or Misty? I kinda need them...
Back to this thread though, I'd still like to put our statuses sort of under our avatar or something. Like a Facebook Status for instance...even though I don't have FB...but something like that may work...like something we can update easily, or is updated automatically.
