it seems we've all been talking about dropping this project and as far as I know it is unanimous now. I’m actually sort of glad about this(albeit disappointed in my self and in you guys, way to go people!), the truth is that none of us was really entirely happy with what came out of the story phase and it is better that we didn’t put all our effort into finishing something that none of us would end up liking, the good news is that we have all also agreed that fake heads will still exist(as far as I know, correct me if you do not).

we still have about one and a half of a week to meet up and plan something else, im guessing that’s enough time for us meeting once more, but not enough to have anything better than last time. which took us two meetings to plan. what i do think we can plan is the way in which we ought to work in the future.

I personally don't believe the anthology form works well for us(but hey, that’s me). I want to suggest instead a system that involves each one of us in a different "specialty area" i.e. concept art, script, character design, backgrounds, etc etc. now, everyone will be involved in each of this areas giving a direction to the whole thing, but in the end it will be the job of one to make each part follow a given direction to benefit the main concept, kind of like an art director. there could be areas that are not constrained to just one person, namely script and animation, there’s is no reason why we cant all work in these areas together, but there will be a pre-established style that someone will have come up with, with the help of everybody else. this is just a suggestion anyway. we could conceivably still work in anthology for if no one likes this idea or finds it unpractical.

anyway comment or write a new post.

I can't help feeling like a failure, but them's the breaks, I guess.

In terms of our next project, I agree it might work better if everyone was in charge of a specific aspect of production. It would also help if we weren't a bunch of lazy ass motherfuckers (I'm talking mostly about myself here).

Are we starting a new project right away? I know you Pratt brats begin school on the 28th, would you be up to working on a film outside of what you already have to do for class? I honestly don't know if I could. I think it'd be cool if we each come up with story proposals over the fall semester, take care of ALL the pre-production stuff, and bust our asses animating over the break. Instead of trying to sync our ideas, we'd be able to go deep into the recesses of our fucked up imaginations and come up with some crazy shit everyone would actually want to animate.

Yeah, that's a good idea. I'm sure we can figure it out and stuff. Yeah, let's have class first for a bit, and then see what we can do and how much we have to handle.

i do think we should meet up once more even if just over the internet, only so we can agree on some very vague yet essential things about the next project, for instance. what mood is it going to have, is it serious or comical, is it going to be surreal , cartoony or realistic, etc etc. this just in order for us to be in somewhat the same tune, and not plan something entirely diferent in our minds.

another posibility could be that each of us writes a treatment without any of the restrains mentioned above, at the end we just choose the one we like best(this could prove to be a problem if we dont agree). anyhow all i'm saying is we should meet to get some stuff straight. but thats me.
