Hello everyone. First of all, I do not know if it is the good place to post this message, as I have only seen open collabs in here. Anyway, here it is :

Dear animators,

Quite a while ago, I had a good script in my head, for a movie. It was called Dear Planet Earth, and I worked hard on it.
I started working on it, but my computer crashed, and I lost everything.

Instead of crying about it, I decided to do it all over, and way better.
I do have a little problem though.

I'm not that much of an animator. I know how to animate, but I'm not good at it.
Over time, I specialized in the art of "Backgrounds" and scenarios.
Here is an exemple of my work
http://img381.imageshack.us/img381/2849/wastelandrg8.jpg

I was kind of hoping, that maybe an animator would like to work with me, on my project.
Or maby more animators at once. Of course, for those wanting to work seriously on the project, we would be co-authors, on the exact same level. because honestly, I can't do it without you guys animating.

So basically, what it comes down to, is this:
I'm making a movie, and I'm recruiting people, to create something great together.
Character Animators.
Special Effect Animators.
Other Animators.

You guys name it.


Resume of the story so far
50 years ago, the last of the independant countries fell under the repeated assaults of the sons of Mendar, led by Mendar himself (I will explain more about him later). Then, Mendar established the Earth Imperium, and became the very emperor of Earth, and the first year of his reign, he eradicated the few unorganized resistant groups. Or so he thought.
What Mendar would discover only years later, whas that a small number of resistants of all countries banded together. Their name : The Tribe. Their Goal : secretely build an underground city, out of the sight of the imperium. They would grow in number and in strength, getting ready for the day of the revenge. The day they would make themselves known and feared. The day they would attack the cursed imperium
Today, we are in 2200. and the Tribe is close to his objective.


Voice Acting
If there are voice actors interested, here a short part of the script you can play with, and see if you like the script style. But, keep in mind this project currently in his first days, so voice acting is not for now. Still, I thought posting a little part of the script would give you guys an idea of the kind of movie it will be.

Dear Planet Earth
Part 1 : The Human Tribe

In this text, places will be written with [ ] and voice details will be written with ( )
Also , [H.Q.] represents the headquarters of the human tribe.

__________________________________________________ _________________________

[Narration]
The narration of the introduction takes the form of Drake’s thoughts.
-Drake : Fifty years ago, the world collapsed. One by one, independant countries fell under control of the Sons of Mendar, led by Mendar himself. The brutal tyrant became the very emperor of Earth. The first year of his reign, he crushed so many of us resistants. He thought he destroyed our will, our dreams of freedom…He was damn wrong ! And we will soon let him know. Soon, in his fall, he will see the result of years of fear and rage, of blood and tears. He will fear the Human Tribe

Eh, what’s that sound? Ah…Allan is back.


[H.Q.]
-Drake : I hope you bring good news
-Allan : Not really… [few seconds of silence]

[Flashback]
-Allan : (shouts) Come on, Anderson ! Get up ! We’ve got to get out of here !
-Anderson : No, leave me here. I wont survive these wounds.

[H.Q.]
-Allan : Anderson is dead

[Flashback]
-Anderson : Dont waste you time arghh! (pain sound) take the files and run (shouting really loud, he doesn’t want to see allan fail).
-Allan : (with authority) Listen up, Anderson. As long as you’re alive, wounded or not, I’m not going anywhere without you.
-Anderson : Then, you leave me no choice…
-Allan : NO, ANDERSON, DON’T ! [gunsound: Anderson shot himself]

[H.Q.]
-Drake : Did you destroy the corpse?
-Allan : Well…I…
-Drake : (sudden burst of rage) Dont tell me you did not ! Allan, for God’s sake, you know the rules. You perfectly know what will happen if the Imperium lays hands on the corpse. Now give me the files and leave. I must inform the Patriarch.

[War Room]
Allan opens the war room’s door, and sits between the other commanders.
-Patriarch : Well, we can begin. (takes a deep breath) Sirs, you all know why you are here.
-Allan : No. I mean, I am only an officer. I…
-Patriarch : You were an officer. And you also were the best of Anderson’s men. You will take his place as commander of the marksmen and expeditionary squads. That said, let’s get back to the plan. Drake, if you will.
-Drake : Of course Patriarch. (silences a few seconds). Anderson’s corpse is located in the sector 25. Our nearest outpost is on the 23rd. Normaly, the outpost men should retrieve the corpse…
-Commander Maloy : But ?
-Drake : But we dont have the slightest knowledge of this sector. We cannot take such a risk.
Commander Li : Why not send a drone?
Patriarch : No, they are too close from the imperium watch tower. They’ll intercept it.
Allan : Wait a minute. There’s something wrong about this, but I can’t figure what.
Soldier : Patriarch ! We have detected a huge energy signal coming from sector 25. We can even detect it here in the headquarters.
Patriarch : The imperium, not doubt they found Anderson. (for the first time, the patriarch seems nervous). We have no time for complex plans anymore. Today is the day I waited for 50 years. (strong and firm voice again) Commanders, prepare your troops. All of your troops. Maloy , your impact squads will reduce to dust the central droids factory. Li, you and your men will destroy the watch towers central system… As for Drake and Allan, find anderson.

Over time, I specialized in the art of "Backgrounds" and scenarios. I would like to show you an exemple of my work, but apparently I need to have 20 posts to show images. If there is an alternative, please tell me.

Just put a space somewhere in the link.
Ex: stickpageportal. com/forums/

Good luck with your project, I would help but I'm on hiatus from animating right now.

type the links out like this

ww w.

example

.c om

and the next poster will generally post the correct link for you [the 20 posts rule is kinda stupid, I know...]


The idea sounds good, but I'm not sure if it will be finished simply by how big of a project you make this sound. I think you should break it down into a several part series [sort of like killing spree] in order to keep its level of success high.

I'm not that great an animator myself, so I'll let better animators animate for this. But if you need a menu, preloader, or some other code. I can make one for you no sweat.

I intended to make different parts, it is a fact. Still, I wanted to give a global view of what the story is, or would be. Now, of course, I won't ask people "hey you want to make a 30 mins flash with me?" :heh:
And by the way, thank's for the menu and preloader offer ! I appreciate it.

As for the link, here it is.

DAMN! Thats a nice background. You should have no problem getting animators for this now =P

How long is each part going to be? 5 min at the maximum I think would be best, because if you go more than that you're sure to get deadly lag. EDIT: While making it I mean, not during play back

5 minutes looks like a perfect lenght to me.

I certainly won't spit on that advertising offer ;)
As for voice acting, I don't know if I said it before but, before I start thinking of when are the auditions, I want to be sure to have animators wanting to share the project with me.

okay, i see what your sayin
and also if your good at drawing backrounds, instead of making anims and showing them you can show off your work in the art section so people know how good you are

Here is a second image. I know it is not much, but I had to do this one anyway. It is a view of the wasteland from inside the Tribe's HeadQuarters.

You sir, will make an epic movie. Seems nicely planned out, and you seem like you are good at flash.

I would like to help. I would like to voice act, of course, will I be a co author--?

Lol, anyways, I think I can voice act. What type of animation is it? Full body, or stick? If Fullbody, I can't animate. And I can MAYBE do stick, cause I still suck.

Edit: I think I would do pretty well with Allan. I tested it out, I think I'm pretty good with it. I added your MSN.

Edit: One major downfall, I'm 12, so my voice might just be a LITTLE high :P

Yo dude, are you the guy that asked for an idea and I gave you one over PMing? Because this sounds dangerously closer to what I said....

Also, when you do have auditions, explain what the characters are. Like teenagers, adults, elder people, deep voice? Explain what they're like....

I do not know if this is some kind of lame joke, but no, I am not. This project has been planned for over a year. Half of hte first part was done when the comp crashed.

Also, look at my subscribtion date. I have joined the 3rd of may 2008 to recreate this project.


Also, when you do have auditions, explain what the characters are. Like teenagers, adults, elder people, deep voice? Explain what they're like....

This has been prepared for a long time already. Simply, I am far from the moment where I will start worring about voice acting auditions.


PS. Sorry for overreacting (perhaps), but honestly, such a comment freaks me out.

No big man, just wondering because just like a few days ago, this random guy who joined this site PMed me for an idea for an animation. So I told him about a group of refugee rebels who fight back on an all-out war against this ruler or whatever, the main character has a best friend, and a lover.

So I was just wondering because I forgot which guy asked me....

I see. a bit of a great coincidence. I believe you. Still, be carefull. Affirmations like this can blow up credibility, that would be frustrating.
Also, it definatly can't be me, for I have been roaming on various forums (deletion quality, here, Shiftlimits) with this project post for 2 days already.

Peace,

Well, I certainly can't animate incredible. That's my problem.

I think I might actually be able to do something for this, if you can draw me a side view of one of the charactersI can try and animate it and show it to you, to see if you like it.

By the looks of it, you got a lot of people here to help, so I'll voice act for ya........... if there is some kind of pre-teen that talks at all in this story. And I think this will give you the feeling of Half-Life 2.

hmm, i can definately help with sidescrolling hand to hand fights. (example of work http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/252214 ) but 3d and cinematics are not one of my good points unfortunately. but if you ever need a sidescrolling hand to hand fight you can call on me if you like :p

but to be honest im guessing there wont be much/any of that

I want to be on the team for voice acting. I'm thirteen and I still kinda have a higher pitched voice. I have a music teacher who has a recording studio, maybe if I got together with him we could help make a soundtrack to use in the movie?
I'm OK at guitar and My music teacher can play tons of instruments. So PM me back if you need help and I'll ask if you want my help.
