    Channel Surfing 2

    That right folks its back! Channel surfing will be back in full swing here very soon, so get your thinking (and creativity) caps on. Something I would like to point out about this one is, I am not going to be director of the project like last time.

    Originally thought by You
    But why Pooon?
    Well I have a lot of things I wanted to get out of the way first and I also have another idea in mind, similar to channel surfing in the way that it is made up of community made shorts, but different in nature and a billion times more intense, so having someone else take care of this will give me a chance to make this idea a reality. Its called "The Beat" and I'll probably begin production in a couple weeks time if everything goes correctly. I'm going to be planning this with Olly K.

    As for channel surfing 2, I have left that in the hands Mega Toon. He was a big part of channel surfing one and I'm sure he'll do a great job with this one. But don't fret, I still have a strong part in the project and I'll make sure it gets the polish necessary before being released but as I mentioned, I'm sure he'll do a great job. Now I don't know if he wants to do anything different with it but I'll be sure he'll let you know well in advance. But whatever the case start thinking now and I want this one to blow the first one out of the water. Remember, the ones that everyone really noticed were the really well made/drawn ones and the funny ones. Especially the funny ones.

    One more thing I'd like to add. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, follow the guide lines. 400 X 300, 24 frames a second, no longer than 15 seconds, send the fla not the swf, and don't make the cartoon out of action script just use motion tween like a normal person (You may think this sounds silly but one of the clips was made this way and it was difficult to get working with the rest). I spent 50% of my time fixing up these errors and this time if it breaks the guide lines, we'll just not accept it until its right, this way we can spend more time on the over all production. Now I don't know if he's planning on changing the guidelines (I doubt it) but, as I said before, if anything is different he'll let you guys know.

    And with that, I hand this thread over to Channel Surfings new director, Mega Toon.

    Sorry poon just got your PM. Great to see the thread is already started.

    I would like to go with the original guidlines posted here. We eventually be able to tie them all together:
    http://www.flashkit.com/board/showth...hlight=Channel

    As for a deadline right now isn't one. I'd like to get as many people on board as possible. So the deadline really depends on you guys.

    I've also got some ideas for implentation of the next Channel Surf. So you will notice me more and more in the Help forums asking questions. Again this will me a community project. So I will also need FK to help me out.

    Let's get started, whether you are alongtime member or just getting started here. This is the perfect opportunity for those looking for animation help to pick my brain.

    Email megatoon(at)shaw.ca with any questions. Or if you would like some of my fla's to play around with

    I don't think he's starting right this minute. And besides, I gave a month for my deadline, mega toon might set his for longer.

    Don't feel any pressure to get something done right away. It takes as much time as it takes to get enough clips together.
    There is no absolute deadline.

    Really this is just to get my butt in gear as well. Animation had become somewhat boring before the last Channel Surf. I had alot of fun creating the clips. Reminded why I wanted to animate in the first place.

    Thought I'd get the bugs in everyone ear about Channel Surf 2

    Take care

    I'm in!

    EDIT1: Where should we send the FLA files?

    EDIT2:
    I'm not sure what you're going for, but if you want to do somesort of dynamic loading, actionscripting or something like that, I might be of some assistance...

    It's a secret. Actually, I've now planned to hold it off till around winter, because with channel surfing 2 happening now, doing two similar projects at the same time would be a mess. I would've started in the fall but I'm heading east for a couple months and leaving my computer behind.

    So yea, same as before. Random shorts and so on. Keep in mind, as I said before the ones everyone remembers are the well made ones and the really funny ones.

    Also, be sure to check the original for ideas or inspiration.
