First question!

Is it supposed to or can it be "cartoony" like Tim Burton style or is the goal photoreal?

Hello...

Well, the style can be 'fantastic' ala Tim Burton, but the end result must look photoreal... especially since your work will be composited onto a live-action plate.

Good luck everyone.

So let me get this straight? What our video will be composed of is a 5-20 sec. shot showing "things" turning into a carnival. That's it?

I don't mean to say that's easy, cause it won't be, but that's pretty much it, right?

Just making sure everyone caught this. We're to composite the 3D elements into a PHOTO PLATE, which if I read this right can be a single shot or a few different shots photocomposited into one for our use.

Correct me if I'm wrong... not sure if I'll have time for this one but I'm sure gonna try!

Just to go with Bischofftep ..this means No video this time? right? Just Photo?

I remember one of the first rules that was, No teaming up...cuz hehe it seems that all the people who won lately were teams...

I'd like these things to be clear.

Thank you.
Xavier.

about that photoplate...

about that photoplate...

how much freedome do we have to mess with that plate? my mind is running wild with ideas...

1. what are the limitations for editing the BG plate?

2. can it only be a still or can it be a live action background? ex, so leaves can be blowing in the background and such...

3. can it only be a photo of a real forest? or can it be a constructed miniature created with real materials? (that would be fun)

this is my first chance to try some "live action magic" with my animation so I just wanted to confirm the guidlines befor I go off the deep end... this has the potential to be really crazy... hope we can be as creative as possible.

Only 5 ft. big?

So let me see if I have this right...

the 10 ships are 5 feet long... and they unfold into a carnival.

A carnival for gnome sized people? Or do these ships fold out and transform Tex Avery style into human sized attractions?

If they transform from tiny to huge, then we would have to scout or create a pretty good clearing for the scene to take place. How much detail would a 5 foot ship hold in contrast to such a huge background plate?

Indeed... something like that.

As far as the BG plate, you can edit it all you like, as long as the end result is photographic.

Can you shoot video? If you want to, but that will make the process of retouching much more difficult.

Can it be a miniature? Sure, again if it looks photographic... to the point that we can't tell that it was a miniature.

glad that you like it... I find it much easier to work on a project if there is a clear 'story'.

In regards to teams, that is fine with me.

Like what? This carnivle is for :

A) gnome sized people

B) The ships fold out for regular humans?
