Well, I'm basically still waiting for some input from opentarget and/or redmotion, our two original designated CAPtains... :!!



Yeah, well ... Thanks for the replies, but I don't think there is ~immediate interest anyway.


Cheers,

did somebody say Mutiny? I think we're in need of some dedicated project managers. People who have experience babying a project along from start to finish, and somebody who isn't going to disappear after a few months leaving everyone leaderless.

I'm an animator with prod. experience from modeling to compositing. While i'd love to head this project with a few others, I don't have that project manager expertise that I think we're in need of.

Is there anybody out there interested in the CAP that HAS some sort of project/production manager background?

All the Best!

While a little mutiny might sometimes definitively be a good thing, I am still hoping to reach the original CAPtains (I've sent them both a friendly PM!), so this "state of affairs" can be cleaned up with the least amount of virtual bloodshed...
:D :ymhug: ^#(^ :-

while i agree mutiny is inevitable if I dont get my finger out and get things moving, I would ask for another chance... :-ss

the original idea was to get people to contribute to the story end of the project so everyone felt included in the story development, while it was a great idea it seams to have fallen flat with very low responses from the forum users.

there is defiantly interest out there but people dont seam to want to contribute in the way we have set up at the start.
i propose that people should send in synopsis or ideas on a short that they would really love to see made, you can use any of the inspirational words from the other posts in the CAP section of the forum or you can start afresh whichever you chose.
send us screen plays or notes or just concepts...anything!

we will then put things to the vote and whichever comes out top wins the prize of the weight of the community working to tell your story!

so post up some ideas in the new CAP thread "Ideas and Synopsis"

As a moderator ^#(^ of this community I feel obliged to state the painfully obvious:
In the spirit of "new beginnings" :ymparty: I've locked all the old topics concerning the CAP (except this one) and added the clarifying prefix "[ARCHIVED]" to every title.
:D

I was thinking about the definition of a short film:
The Rules for the Oscars (why aim lower? :D 8-} ) define it as follows:
Quote:
"A short film is defined as an original motion picture that has a running time of not more than 40 minutes, including all credits."

That seems sufficiently vague for our cause, although 40 minutes seem way too long...

Any ideas? :-\

yes that is vague enough for us and i agree 100% that we should aim sky high for this otherwise there is no point.
I have an idea that id like to put forward myself and am just putting together a synopsis and a few rough sketches.
40 mins is long....very very long, i recon we aim around the 2-5mins margin?

And purely as a little bit of inspiration:
"French Roast" would be my number 1 choice in the short film category at the 2010 Academy Awards:
Go see it here: French Roast

(yes, I know I could've embedded it, but I didn't want to,
as it's not directly si-community related... :-?? )

yes french roast was defiantly a gorgeous looking piece! and a good bar to set for ourselves.
here's another that i thought was very nice: http://www.vimeo.com/4749536
as for the CAP if you pop over to the "ideas and synopsis" thread of the CAP forum you will find that we are making progress and have settled on an idea for the first ever softimage community animation project. come along and join in.
