(note to self: check out the stop-motion thread more often)

I think a photocomic as a start might be a good idea, but it seems less like something that the whole group could contribute to

I'm still suffering from severe writers block, but i swear that i will come up with something to contribute, even if it kills me

All in favour of a toy-comic? Say yay. All in favour of a stop-motion? Say nay.

I say yay.

(waving white flag as pathetically as one can be) I do know how to say goodbye in Russian if that helps?

I know I'll kill myself if I fail to give anything good. Welcome aboard the suicide express!

Before we know it, we'll be making a cartoon and a PC game as well. Maybe we can fit a different line into each one? For instance classics for stop motion, BWs for photocomics, etc.


PS: Skywarp91 is your signature pic from 1997 CCTV version Three Kingdom, Xiahou Dun? Kick my tailpipe if I'm wrong...just thought it looks so familiar...

I say yay to a photocomic... unsure if I can contribute to stop motion. I've made plenty of photocomics and I've made some stop motions -- and stop motions are a LOT more time-consuming and harder to make than a photocomic.

It's just because I don't think I would have the time to contribute to a stop motion. For example, this stop motion is made up of some 450 shots and took, me 5 days to make - and that was while I was on holidays, so it was 5 days of nothing much but stop-motion making, sleeping, eating and toileting. And that was just for about 1 minute and 5 seconds worth of animation! That was _before_ my baby was born... don't know if I would have the time to make a stop-motion now. (if I did, it would take a loooooooong time :/).

But a photocomic I can still make fairly easy enough. I just feel that we should be trying to walk before we try to run. Also, there are certain things that look better in a photocomic than in stop motion, like certain sight-gags.







Photocomics allow you to tell a lot more story in much less time to make. But hey, if the rest of you have the time and resources to make a stop motion, don't let me stop you. But I think it'd be good to do a "test run" with a collaborative photocomic series first. JMHO.

I think you'll find a lot of people like th emovies, it's just that there are also some vocal haters.

We're all fans of transformers, don't feel that any part of your interest is undervalued because someone else doesn't like it.

given the rather commonality of the movie toys, using them for an aspect of this project may make interstate cooperation a lot easier, different shots could be compiled in different locations with the same characters.

same goes for any of the more recent toy lines I guess
