These auditions will be to take part in Did You Hear That? Vol 2
Here is the original
Just a really basic rundown of the concept.
Everyone in the collab picks out 1 random sound effect of their choosing. After each person has contributed ONE sound. Then I compile the sound effects into a random order.
This complete sound file is then sent out to everyone, and they are not allowed to adjust it ANY way. They may not add/remove sound effects, or change the time between the sound effects.
That's the trick of the collab. Everyone will animate the same sound clip. Because there is no way to know who you're working with, you cannot steal ideas either. Meaning every individual idea that emerges from the collab will be 100% based on their own interpretation.
It did pretty decently overall, snagging a Daily 5th while being relatively underrated. But a few days later Tom front paged it, the score shot up, and I had hundreds of reviews telling me how much they loved the concept behind the collab!
In the original, I hand picked everyone, and we worked entirely through PMs here on Newgrounds. This will be half true for Volume 2 ass well.
I don't think I know enough animators to be able to get a new team together in total secrecy. I mean no disrespect to the old team, I love them all to death for the work they did, but I am getting a 100% new team together! I would feel like a tool picking and choosing people to stay and go, so to be fair, they are all cut!!
Good news for you community of Newgrounds!
That means I will be holding auditions. Post me links to what you view as your BEST work. I prefer if you can link to Newgrounds submissions of yours, but if your best was in a collab, please host just your part on spamtheweb or dumpgrounds or something for me to check out.
I have a few new members already in mind. But not the full 9 I need.
This also gives a chance for some promising animators here on the BBS to maybe take a step out of their comfort zones, and maybe get a little bit or recognition for their part!
At this stage I'm not looking for sound files, just animation skills.
I plan to pick and choose some fresh blood from here on the forums. And if I end up with a few heavy-hitters, than that's pretty awesome too!
The auditions could drag out a couple weeks, depending on how long it takes me to pick out the best team! Once everyone is choosen, we will revert to the secrecy of the PMs!
For now, post here, and we'll see who we can find.
Good luck to everyone. I will alert you to your membership in the collab through PMs as well.
Because I'm a dink like that. In the best way possible of course.
Are you good at Flash and want to participate in a collab? Then PM me or post on the forum with your best work and I'll let you know if you can be in the collab or not.
