The eight animators that will be taking part in this contest are as follows:

T-Man
Spitzer
Miccool
SSOutPhase
Bubbleman
Jaws
Stone

Congratz to you guys and good luck. I also want to pass on a big thank you to everyone who sent me there entry's. I'd like to point out that we didn't choose the eight animators on animating skill alone. I asked for 2 of your newer/best animations. A lot of great animators entered but some of there animations were not good demos of there skill as the seven who were chosen. The eight that were chosen gave great demos of there skill of animating not only stick figures but backgrounds and presentation. You never know when a contest or collab like this will come around and it's good to develop your portfolio. I'd like to give an honorable mention to Ln3uq, SSJBryando, Apples and Kitsune.


The prize structure for this contest is as follows:

All eight animators will receive $100 dollars U.S. at the end of the contest.
First place prize is $300 dollars U.S. (on top of the $100).
Second place/runner up prize is $150 dollars U.S. (on top of the $100).
Theme for this contest is as follows:

The theme is "Movie Parody". Bellow is a list of movies that each animator will be able to choose from to do there animation on. There can be no duplicates so first come first serve rules apply. Once a animator chooses there movie theme then that theme is off limits to the rest.

Star Wars - Spitzer
LOTR
Terminator
Matrix - SSOutPhase
Indiana Jones - Miccool
Mission Impossible
Conan the Barbarian
Jumper - Jaws
Gladiator
Back to the Future
talladega nights
Batman
Spiderman - Stone
Superman
X-Men - Bubbleman
300 - T-Man
Pirates of the Caribbean
GhostBusters
The Bourne Trilogy
The Mummy Trilogy


Note: Pick a theme you believe is doable within the confines of your animating skill and not just because it's cool. You will have a limited time to work on this so pick something that you can sum up quickly or redo (in your own way) a famous scene.

Contest Rules are as follows:


No foul language, nudity or adult themes.
Try to keep the file size to around 4 megs, lower the sound quality as too many people make the mistake of using perfect sound at the risk of large file sizes.
Use a preloader and have a start button or menu screen. Nobody likes animations that just start. They want to be able to push start.
Please include a stickpage.com intro animation that links to stickpage.com in a new window.
Please include a persistent link to stickpage.com in the top corner that links to stickpage.com in a new window.
Make sure to give yourself proper credit but please, no links, logos or names of any other sites other then Stickpage.com.
The structure of the animation should be stick figure based. Now if you feel you need to draw a character like "Yoda" for cinematic appeal then do so as long as that character is in a supporting role and not the main character. This rule applys to props as well.
You have 4 weeks to complete this animation. April 11th is the due date.Note: Information regarding the rules and content regarding this contest may be altered or changed during the course of the contest so keep your eye's peeled to this thread.

Good luck...

Holy crap, I'm even greater then I thought I was.

<3 ZuLu



I call Jumper.


*edit*

Do we make a joke of the movie, remake a scene, or make our own serious scene?

Oh, also, congrats to everyone else who got in.

^_^

ZuLu
03-14-2008, 06:52 PM
Remake a scene of the movie or sum up the movie in quick cut scenes. You can redo a scene word for word or put your own spin on it. You got 300.

T Man
03-14-2008, 07:10 PM
Hey zulu, do you mean parody as in we have to make it funny or twist it up?

SSOutPhase
03-14-2008, 07:15 PM
O_O

Wow, I'm speechless. Well, I'll go for The Matrix.

But one question, is the winner chosen by their animation skills or their humor? Which one matters more?

ZuLu
03-14-2008, 07:46 PM
Hey zulu, do you mean parody as in we have to make it funny or twist it up?
You can do either. You can remake a scene word for word action by action or you can put your own twist on it. It can be funny or serious. It can be epic or stupid. Your call...


O_O

Wow, I'm speechless. Well, I'll go for The Matrix.

But one question, is the winner chosen by their animation skills or their humor? Which one matters more?
Winners will be selected by Crazy Jay and myself. We will concentrate on animation skill and presentation. Presentation meaning overall enjoyment from watching your animation.

Spitzer
03-14-2008, 08:04 PM
THANK YOU!

To know I'm one of the 7 best means alot to me, thats Zulu/ Crazy Jay!

Now its time to step it up a notch [or a few at that] >=]

This is a tough choice though. Jawz got the one I wanted the most xO

So I guess ill choose...

So as long as it's related to the movie, it's fine I guess. Good luck everybody!

jawz, which animations did you show zulu?
Im curious.

and one more that I can't show you because it's the SPP CTF Menu.

You can do a serious fight. Parody simply means "your take". If you want to do a scene out of the movie or a recap of the whole movie then do so, do it serious or funny it's your call.


Btw, are the order of animators listed on the first post listed from best to worst animators in your opinion?
No, there just listed in no specific order. I actually intentionally mixed them up so that people wouldn't get all crazy about who I put first or last.

Spitzer
03-15-2008, 09:04 PM
So, may i ask you this, Whats your order? ;3

Scarecrow

Miccool

Also, another question. When we're done, are we allowed to submit it to sites like Newgrounds or Deviantart? or are we only allowed to put it on SP?

Cause that'd suck.

Please don't release any animations to the public on any site. On the contest end date you will be instructed to PM me your final entry. After that we will post the winners. We will then showcase the best ones on Stickpage.com for a short duration. Then you will be allowed to submit your animation to any site of your choosing but not before.

Miccool
03-17-2008, 04:17 PM
OKay, thanks for the info.

Miccool
03-18-2008, 02:35 AM
Also, can I try to change mine from Indiana Jones to Tomb Raider? Cause mine doesn't look like Indiana Jones at all..

Scarecrow
03-18-2008, 04:09 AM
Okay, I'm starting work.


Background is going well, it looks good so far. I'm going with my own scene, but I'll be incorporating a few of the most epic bits of the movie into it. Just to raise anticipation, expect to see someone get a bus 'thrown' at them.

This will be interesting :)

Miccool
03-18-2008, 04:38 AM
lol show us a screenie.
http://picshift.shiftlimits.com/files/3402dc99/884/SPPCOMPmiccool.png

reasons for why I think I should change:
1. no whip
2. no hat
3. Excessive kung fu moves >_>

Bubbleman
03-18-2008, 12:52 PM
looks good miccool cant wait!! and much credit to you as ive been inspired by the particals you use, for my animation, as im doing the nightcrawler fight in x-men 2 and those particals look great

Scarecrow

I say cut out the arguing, but I honestly wouldn't mind an extension. Three weeks is a little bit difficult for me, and I think I'll have trouble completing an animation in that time, but I'm not going to argue the point.

Miccool
03-19-2008, 12:48 AM
I say no extension! (So my chances of winning is higher >_>) I'm a bastard.

There would have to be a astronomical amount of support for this to happen. I know for a fact that there are 4 of the 8 that don't need an extension and so no extension will be given.

I don't know, I gotta say I'm leaning towards no extension. Miccool basically said it best. Everybody knew the end date, you have to be able to due some time management on these type of projects.

T Man
03-29-2008, 03:50 PM
Zulu, you're right. I've been trying my hardest to do this on the weekends. I'm booked everyday with midterm hw and baseball. Well, I'm gonna wip this out today.

Good luck everyone.
EDIT: The reason i'm asking for another week is because i'll be on spring break the following week. Miccool's had spring break D:

Oh, come on ZuLu, with more time, people who don't really need an extension can make their animations better, and people who do can actually finish theirs.

:/

You want best possible quality, amirite?

*hopeful*

Miccool

Fine, if you guys really want to extend this, then fine, I'll accept it. : |

Just don't extend it by more than a week.

I think I like what I have so far, In my mind i thought i had till the 14th for some reason. So i guess I'll be having to speed things up!

I've been watching spiderman for inspiration ;]:Spiderman:

Oh hey guise, I'm up to around 750 frames, but because I now work from nine to five at a locksmith for work experience, I'm going to have to start cutting down on the length of the animation and use less detail so I have a chance of getting it done in time.

I'm still having a hard time even with the extension.

Okay lol, I figured that out. But we still get to compete right?

Seeing as you're front-page'ing these I guess you'll give us more time to finish it after the competition to finish it, amirite?


okay i would make this sound more polite but i gotta go to work experience i hope you get what i mean kthxbai

Its just a case of how many things you've got going on at the same time.
I mean, you might have 50 odd layers, but that could just be for one 5 second cinematic... you only use around 15 for the bulk of the animation.

(But I guess you guys have lots of things going on in your animations all the time, so i guess that second thing I said doesnt apply)

StrunG
04-12-2008, 05:56 PM
It's pretty pathetic at how many people didn't finish their animations and still expect to be paid. The deal was you make an animation specifically for the competition and then you get paid. If your animation isn't done by the end of the competition, I don't see why you should get paid for it. That would be unfair to Zulu.

Of course there is exceptions for people who got a lot done, but couldn't quite finish in time. I think it should be up to Zulu in that case, whether he's going to pay them the full $100 or part of it, or whatever. I'm talking about the people who barely got anything done.

NCz
04-13-2008, 05:31 PM
If they are all posted in one big thread it will have about 20 pages of comments before the days over. It would also get confusing maybe. I would suggest each animator make their own thread on the appointed day. Threads get stickied. Then after about 2-3 hours for viewing in public. A poll thread could also be posted and stickied. With links to the animation threads.

Scarecrow
04-14-2008, 01:39 AM

Ok guys,

Out of 7 authors 5 presented a valid entry. The two that did not cannot be paid since nothing was completed. The authors that earn the $100 dollars are as follows.

Stone
Tman
Micool
Jaws
Bubbleman

Since there will be $200 in left over contest prizes. We are going to declare 3 winners. First place will receive $350, second place $250 and third place $150.

The winners will be announced by the animation being put up on Stickpage.com! Today the third place winner will go up. Tuesday the second place winner will be up and Wednesday the first place winner will be up. The winners will be paid during this week.

I'd like to thank everyone for there time and effort. I know it was a tough deadline and all the credit should go to those who finished.

P.S. Since this contest was very competitive and the first kind that Stickpage has done. We will be holding a second contest very soon with a different theme and new rules on who can enter and how.

Cheers,
ZuLu

Congratulations to Stone and T-man.

Wow, I can't wait to see who's on the first place. This is so dramatic. Who will be the number one? Will Jawz receive a confirmation to his self-called awesomeness? Will Bubbleman celebrate? Will Miccool finally confess that there is a secretly placed boobie in his signature and avatar?

Find out tomorrow, on StickPagePortal Forums.

HOW DID YOU KNOW =O.


This has been a nice competition. I bet everyone who has made a part won't regret it.






And about that boobie thing. I'd laugh if anyone actually looked. -_-

There's two more animations yet to be released, however they won't be released till next week sometime.

As for Micool, Stone and T-Man. You guys can release your animations to NG and anywhere else you submit them to if you like...

I'm still working on mine, I've just been swamped with school work the past week

:/

Several projects were due, and we did several essays and tests.

They're all done though and I have a long weekend so expect it soon-ish.
