Well… thanks for your trust in me.
As RaichuWizDom suggested, I think we now have a sketch for the story. I just think we need to work a litte bit more to create a distraction to the viewer, a promess and a overturn (maybe things should be not so easy), or a way to change the rhythm.
I can see the 3 main acts(moments) of the movie:
1- Act: preparation of the cake( decoration on it )
2- Act: cake goes to the oven ( just the hands hold it )
3- Act: cake removed from the oven by a boy (cake removed from the oven by the hands, the boy appear on the turn around to show his cake to some older people). Happy birthday song?
This is a good idea, but we need to have in mind that the rhythm is not fast, and the visual, takes, angles should create our impact.
If you all agree, we can go on with this idea. But we need to work a little bit more with the story. Anyway, congratulations RaichuWizXom, it’s a nice idea.
About the tools… I am still using dropbox and trello for now, but please, if any suggestions(open source) come, we can migrate.
Just a comment: I have tried in the past some trello alternatives(kanban structure), as dropbox alternatives; but some people have problems with one or other… so, to avoid problems I always suggest these ones. If you find good tools that works with all kind of systems( win, mac, linux ), would be great. I only use Linux here, but I know that others use other systems, and that’s fine for me. No problem with that. We all need to work with pleasure and confort.
About the project, as fenix mentioned… yes, It is an open source project. We can follow the Blender Institute recipe, with a DVD at the end. So We all can help Synfig to grow up a bit more.
So, we need a Blog( it can be an subdomain from synfig.org ), making of stuff, a dvd / blu-ray with all content inside of it. All resolution movies, and source files under any open liscence. When finished, people can download for free the files, or donate to synfig.org to get a physical DVD/Blu-ray. What do you think about that?
