The Projects so far this week:

See Below...















THE IP INCUBATOR CLUB.

in·cu·bate


/ˈɪnkyəˌbeɪt, ˈɪŋ-/ Show Spelled [in-kyuh-beyt, ing-] Show IPA verb, in·cu·bat·ed, in·cu·bat·ing.verb (used with object)
1. to sit upon (eggs) for the purpose of hatching.
2. to hatch (eggs), as by sitting upon them or by artificial heat.
3. to maintain at a favorable temperature and in other conditions promoting development, as cultures of bacteria or prematurely born infants.
4. to develop or produce as if by hatching; give form to: His brain was incubating schemes for raising money.

Welcome to the IP Incubator Club
The idea behind this Club is simple


POST MONTHLY UPDATES of Original IP that you are developing. Hopefully IP that can eventually help the creator generate some income.
Also you should provide CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK to the work posted by other posters of the club.

The idea of this "Incubator Club" is to get away from the gloom and doom and provide a lifeline of support for our fellow artists.

The artists will have at their discretion how much they wish to share on the projects they are working on, what program they will be using and the medium . But the IP HAS BE AN ORIGINAL CREATION.











DEVELOPER CO-SPONSORS
The idea is to match developers with individual sponsors. People whose responsibility is to monitor the progress of a specific project. The sponsors would be fellow developers. It would be their responsibility to provide support and provide guidance to the developer from an outsider's point of view. I'm not advocating "mentor ship" where there usually is an imbalance of expertise/knowledge between two parties. Rather, I envision sponsorship to be a vehicle for peer support, for consultation between and among artists who each have valuable tools, experience, and knowledge to share. Sponsorship is method for both parties to learn and grow professionally and perhaps personally as well.







The Concept



___________________________




Ok so lets recap:
The idea behind this IP incubator club is to provide a cool hangout place for IP creators. recap....
Weekly threads will be posted, to provide encouragement for developer to keep working on their idea.

On way to see this is to think of us as a spotter on your local gym.

I've been developing concept art and story for a little game for awhile and now looking for a chance to create the game itself. Please have a look.

Luna
action stealth platformer game

A travel through the child's imaginary world.


The story:
Luna and her younger brother living in a little town with their parents. Luna's brother has a very strong imagination. He spends his days in forest playing alone, exploring imaginary landscapes, fighting imaginary monsters and talking to imaginary creatures. Luna and her parents don't pay much attention to the little boy's strange behavior.

But one day the boy disappears. Luna goes to the forest where he usually spent his days, but surprisingly she finds herself not in an ordinary forest but in her brothers imaginary world, filed with strange creatures, creepy monsters and magic.

She now has to enter the unknown, find the way through darkness. save her brother, learn to fly and find the way home.

Hey everyone,
I know it is the end of the month but I'm going to post here with my inaugural Incubator post. I was laid off recently and have decided to take a part time job to provide a base income and leave me enough time to pursue my dream of developing an IP. I'll get a formal WIP thread started for august that follows the incubator guidelines, but since I don't have anything other than a concept right now, I didn't really see the point of making a thread with nothing to put there yet.

I like the idea of the incubator and it seems like there are some talented people that are involved. I'm looking forward to participating.

CONCEPT NAME: Irresistible Grace

STILL IMAGE: film banner coming week 1 of August

CATEGORY:
Children's Book/Short Film/App

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A story about a young girl and how a religious experience helps her see the world as a beautiful place.

STATUS NUMBER: preliminary post

TEAM MEMBERS:1

START DATE: Aug 2014

ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE : Not sure yet, I need to get my head around what assets I need first, break the project into phases and set up a production schedule.

WIP THREAD: Coming in Aug

WHAT WENT RIGHT THIS WEEK: got laid off last month, taking part time job to allow free time develop the project

WHAT WENT WRONG:got laid off last month

SHOW AND TELL: n/a

CONCEPT NAME: NeverEndingPrincessStory
CATEGORY: Animation
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Think Harry Potter meets Dallas. An original production with mass appeal. The catch-phrase is "Find Your One True Love" and the concept (IP) includes a fully-functional and state-of-the-art dating website to help you do just that.
STATUS NUMBER: 1 + contractors
TEAM MEMBERS: CEO/Head Dishwasher - Chris Cowan. I hire contractors from time to time depending on need. I will hire some voiceover arts @ $25. per "part" for example. Will probably use a service like Odesk for a consultant or 2 to get through all this software; get an "expert" opinion.
START DATE - Ongoing; go to youtube and watch the whole 1 hour movie or go to the website and register for the dating site.
ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE : It's NeverEnding of course...
WIP THREAD: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Neve...ry/210744261421
WHAT WENT RIGHT THIS WEEK: Spent alot of time watching videos and evaluating software. Got some great ideas/insights. Posted a short video looking for voice actors and received a response. Upgrading personal workspace before digging in; spring cleaning.
WHAT WENT WRONG: Spent a bit too much time learning and not enough producing. Getting confused about remembering what I used to know in web development, tons of new tools. Have to find 300$ to renew secure server certificate and register as apple developer. Want to spend more time outside now that spring is here too!
SHOW AND TELL: Check the production blog on FB for latest updates.

My expectations/commitment to CGSociety and it's members, if you accept my submission is the following:

* This work is "proof of concept" and is "made" by one person over time. It does not compare to feature film work and I know this. I work alone and am looking for valid and constructive criticism. "Daz models suck" or "You should use Maya" does not move me forward. "Try using this filter" or "no, I would do it this way.." does move me forward.
* If you promote me of course I will promote you; I like to share the link love; it costs nothing.
* You can AMA. You may not like the response but I will answer your questions to the best of my abilities.
* If you like what I am doing then please register for the website and try it out. I need some data/feedback on this area too. If you want to create a few accounts and test out the automatch feature, for example let me know and I will approve all these listings for your testing.
* I am not looking for anything for "free" and am not out to "screw anyone". If you do any actual "work" on the production you will receive a nominal fee for your efforts and credit. The expectation is that if this actually works and becomes successful of course the rates would go up. But you have to start somewhere.

Thank you for your consideration
