I would really like to do something like that

Ok this WILL happen.
Ok time to organize ourselves.
I will post an formal call to action thread at the FXwars forums later today.

So lets start organizing those who wish to join teams/ 2 weeks should be plenty of time.
Solo entries of course are kosher.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?
FILMING?
EDITING?
ANIMATION?
VFX?
MOTION GRAPHICS?
What is YOUR SOFTWARE?
Do you have LEGAL access to:
A Studio?
Filming equipment?
Camera?
What is your LOCATION?
Do you want to work with a local team or Remotely?
Do you have a preference (live Action or Animation?

So is it going to be by teams?
 
Old 08 August 2014   #34
Hey guys - I may have to fast track my entry to this weekend, as next weekend is going to be a little heavy for me!

Ill try to move stuff around - but if I cant Ill keep you all updated, and will certainly be as involved next weekend as possible!
 
Old 08 August 2014   #35
OK I will allow for people to do entries THIS weekend.
What I will do is to have similar topics on different weekends.

Like for example FIRE in one, and ICE in another. What do you guys think?

Oooh - I really like that! Its like a life vs death thing.

We could always have the 'main' challenge run over a longer period so that people can pick and choose which weekend they can work over? That may help with something like this having such an insanely short deadline - and allow people to participate when they can instead of having to wait a few weeks/months between challenges just because someone cant quite make it on a specific weekend.

So Sprint 1 could be:

22 August, 23 August, 24 August.

Sprint 2

29 August, 30 August, 31 August,

Sprint 3

5 September, 6 September, 7 September.

That may also help this gain a bit of traction on the forum - people may see the Sprint 1 and 2 stuff, and be inspired to join in Sprint 3.

Roberto, that would be great. So where do we create the threads? Is there going to be a new section in the mini challenges? Or we just use WIP animation for now?

So who's in for the first sprint? Shall we lock a theme? Anything would go, really.
 
Old 08 August 2014   #39
Im in for this sprint. I think we just use the existing forums. Perhaps at a later date if this takes off there can be some sort of dedicated place for it - but the normal WIP Animation forums are perfect for now!

If I am say "I am in", something will just pop out, and I'll be unable to do it.
So, I'll just keep my mouth shut, and hopefully, will create something that will push my skills further.

Anyway, whenever I am in, or out, I'll watch all threads.


offtopic:
@Puke
I watched yesterday what you did for the first "3 days cinematic" challenge, and it is stunning.
I also watched making off, and very interested in some of the stuff you did there.
Is it possible to upload slower version of making off, if you still got original capture?
I am mostly interested in creation of the trees (was that a camera projection?), and your compositing process.

I recorded it as a timelapse, so I dont have a slower version - sorry!

The trees were done with camera projection. Compositing was pretty simple passes in After Effects. I tried to get as much done 'in camera' as possible - so things like fog and plur were done in VRay.
I honestly cant remember too many details, but Ill be doing similar things this challenge and will record some video to go along with it!
 
Old 08 August 2014   #42
Thanks man, looking forward to this.

P.S. Just got an idea for cinematic.

Did you just call him puke? Not cool man.

I might get into this one, I hate rushing things up but it might be a pretty cool exercise!
 
Old 08 August 2014   #44
Hah.. sorry Pyke
In the Serbia those 2 letters are kind of similar (cyrilic "U" is written similar to "Y").



Sorry for the off topic guys.

Guys what I need from you is to spread the word on the seven winds.
Point past members to this thread.
I will start formalizing rules during the day at the FXwars forum.
