Ever want to expand your horizons? Work with others? Produce high-quality content for the site and general public? Possibly even develop mobile apps? Join Stone's Animation Crew and Internship!


We've recently just released one of our projects;

Stick Figure Test Facility (http://stickpage.com/stickfiguretestfacility.shtml)

If it does well, we will be making it into a mobile app! It took 3-4 animators about 2 months of hard animating to complete over 40 animations for this project, a voice actor and an artist from our group to bring it together.

The goal of this team is to provide you with an opportunity to work with others in a real-life experience in game development and animation. You may even use this as an internship if your school offers an internship class / program. One of our members, InfamousBonk, has actually used the SAC as his internship at his high school. When you have helped complete an official project to completion I personally will write a letter of recommendation that you may take to future internships or employers.

You will be working with me and the team on a daily basis, generally on 1 of 3 current projects. It's fun, we get a lot done and we are proud of what we make!

We are currently looking for dedicated members to help create quality projects with varying time frames for the following skill sets;

- Art/ illustration
- Animation
- Game development / beta testing
- Voice Acting

If you are interested, leave a comment here or apply via PM to me show casing some of your work. We are looking for fairly experienced artist / animators and this may not be for everyone, but I welcome everyone who is interested to apply.

Thanks!

I would like to be part of the team, if you like. Beta-testing on the games, and improving some with suggestions.

I would actually really be interested in this as either an artist or animator (I prefer dealing with artwork). I don't really have any animations that I can showcase for as far as stick figures go since I prefer effects or background elements. I also have some experience with actionscript and can help with some innovative ideas.

As for my availability, my tour in Iraq is ending in just less than a month so I'll have a ton of free time to contribute to this and be present for any sorts of discussions. My tablet is currently KIA while I wait for a replacement usb cable, so I wouldn't be able to really start anything for up to two weeks (it's in the mail).

As for my portfolio, he's some old to recent stuff I've done to give you an idea about my style:

I guess I couldn't be part of this group because of my inactivity the last time I joined this, sorry for that.
It was a busy school year, couldn't help it, at least I got a high grade this school year and ended up a salut.

Nevertheless, I thought I couldn't be part of any game developments because of this, but surprisingly, I was successful being a character artist at one of the games my friend in Hyun's Dojo was making, a tribute to Five Nights at Freddy using creepy RHG characters. Perhaps it's not because I'm that lazy, or that I'm too busy, but because this team communicates through that site. It was quite dry actually, I didn't know what I was supposed to specifically do. Just a suggestion for you guys, it would be better to have a meeting in Skype as a group call, you could literally feel the presence of everyone. Welp, congratulations for the successful game stone! Hoping for more enjoyable games to come!

Sounds good. Here's a joint i made with darknesspawn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5gIyPREM_0&feature=youtube_gdata_player and I'm also a good voice actor. I just don't have anything to show for it lol. I can program a little with action script, but I'm not good enough to be able to do anything with it. definitely wanna be a beta tester though.

I think that wasn't the issue, the issue was your time zone. We are all on our IRC / skype. Aside from trello and that we generally hold weekly meetings which you also couldn't appear for because of school or timezone issues. HOWEVER, we definitely encourage all peeps to join / rejoin if they have the time to dedicate.

All others who are interested, go to our IRC #SAC and camp out if I'm not there. Im trying to work nights now so my day time responses are more limited. Which, might help those with varying time zones in alll actuality.

I know this may seem like a really stupid question, but what's IRC? I never really knew what it was.

Hmmm, you're right. I think those meetings were like, 3 AM in my timezone. I couldn't possibly stay late at night, especially when class was going on. A month from now, I'll be a college student, and I'm taking up a medical course, therefore it would be a lot harder then. I was able to help out with the Five Nights at Freddy tribute since it's summer right now.

I actually have to make a continuation of Scribblenauts Unlimited: Rescuing Stickpage, my game tribute animation. I paused the progress to help with the game since I never got to help with SAC in its gaming endeavors and I thought it would be a new experience. The animation's going well, when I finish it, I'm gonna "try" to get it sponsored hahaha. So yeah, since I'll be a college student, I will have like, an hour or half, dedicated to animation each day. It would have been nice to rejoin, but being a member of something so important and enthralling... my timezone just doesn't support it...

Sorry for my past inactivity stone.

I've been previously doing some story plots, usually fantasized. I have no sense on doing scripting or stuff. But I'll try my best. I'm trying on the Game Development.

Do you have to be a certain age for this group, and do you have to meet somewhere to talk about game devolpment and updates and stuff? beacause im only 11, but im really into animation, I make short little minecraft animations, but no stick animations yet. But, I would like to be a Beta-game tester, and I could have suggestions for games and stuff.

want to see my best minecraft animation? go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEsC4djxO7M

I'm sure Stone is only really looking for more experienced people to help him out. There are several tutorials in the tutorial section that will teach you how to animate and post them.

He's probably not online right now. But Arch's right. In order to participate, you gotta have the skills to do so. And if you learn and keep going over time, eventually you will have the skills to join in on something like this. But right now, you're just not experienced enough. I recommend getting some practice, learning some stuff, and when you're confident in your skills, then you ask to join something. Because nobody's going to have somebody do something they have no idea how to do. So once you learn how to do it, and do it well, you can join things pretty easily.
