Entry #151

Paradigmadness II

2013-03-28 04:06:57 by Alpha-Nuva

It's time. Time to start recruiting members for Paradigmadness II. I'm hoping to see some faces from last year, as well as some new ones.

Still keeping the same format as last year: the movie will start out with an intro, followed by a sequence of separate parts created by other animators, filling out a story. This year, however, I have a solid story that I want to complete!

Animators will be split up into 3 teams, each animating a respective character whose stories all intertwine. with each other. This will limit the creativity that we had last year, but will allow us to animate more directly and effectively, as we will have a set plan rather than parts that roughly link together.

The idea is to animate Seeker, Edgar, and Newton as they travel through the underground facility and ultimately complete their mission. So, in effect, this movie will be Paradigmadness II/Rebooting the Madness 3 all wrapped into one movie.

As we did last year, only the best Madness tribute animators may sign up for this. If you feel you qualify, write a comment or leave me a PM. If you were on the team or invited last year, consider this an automatic invitation to return. Hopefully, this year, we can get some responses from the greats of NG.

Well, this is amazing. I would be honored if I could get a chance to join the project.

(Updated ) Alpha-Nuva responds:

Your style's not exactly what I'm looking for. If you can make it a little less bouncy and more accurate in terms of physics, I'll let you join.


2013-03-28 06:38:00

D: If I have enough time I'll apply for this, the sequel of the most epic madness collab..
Hope this time every member can finish their parts.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

I'd love to have you on board. Your stuff looks pretty solid now.


2013-03-28 07:30:08

As much as I'd like to be a part this, I doubt I have the required skills :(

(Updated ) Alpha-Nuva responds:

You're almost at that level that I'm looking for. Tighten up your skill a bit and you can join.


2013-03-28 07:53:17

I would love to join again.
And this time I will make sure that I finish my part early, not in the last freaking minutes like last time.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

Hence why I start recruiting early on in the year as opposed to a month before MD.


2013-03-28 08:23:43

I'll join again. I felt I didn't do as well as I could of done.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

Anything you wanna bring to the table this year would be much appreciated.


2013-03-28 10:01:41

I am intrigued by this.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

You can totally join. I'd love to toss you in for some dramatic shots.


2013-03-28 10:07:16

2013-03-28 11:37:29

*Epic Inhale*


2013-03-28 15:34:33

Alpha-Nuva responds:

2013-03-29 07:14:40

I'd really like to join. I maybe not so awesome animator, but I'm pretty good with sprites)

Alpha-Nuva responds:

sorry, animators only.


2013-03-29 15:42:34

I want to join.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

sorry bud


2013-03-30 00:12:35

If I had more skill I'd join too bad i don't


2013-03-30 00:30:10

Everyone is waiting this moment!!


2013-03-30 02:12:46

Do you think it would be out on Madness Day 2013 ??

Alpha-Nuva responds:

of course


2013-03-30 09:06:21

Hi, Alpha. May i join in?

Alpha-Nuva responds:

Send me a preview of your work and I'll see.


2013-03-30 13:11:48

I mean I am an animator, but not the best, and I could do some decent animations, u can watch my latest movie, to judge.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

Not bad, but not exactly what I'm looking for either. Keep doing your thing, though!


2013-03-30 20:56:50

I'm not much an flash maker but i just made a clay Madness of myself. Check it in my art


2013-03-31 15:08:07

Well since I am getting back into my habit of animating long scenes I might ask to join later? Madness Day 2013 is quite far away.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

Just as long as you have time enough to animate before August.


2013-04-01 05:43:50

could you see what i can in prove on i am going to make a link later........
and this is my first year making madness so may be not Paradigmadness 2.....
and maybe next year i could join Paradigmadness 3 if there will be one


2013-04-01 13:58:16

How much skill must animators have for join paradig madness 2?
and how much skill have i?

Alpha-Nuva responds:

go watch the first one.


2013-04-01 18:19:30

One of these days... months... years...
Eventually I'll be good enough to consider trying to get into projects like this. These kinds of high skill only animations are what motivate me to better myself. You guys are a real inspiration! Keep it up!


2013-04-01 18:21:14

Oh (sorry for the dub post), and are you still planning to do Hunt of the Shoop this year, or is that getting pushed back again?

Alpha-Nuva responds:

hots is dead


2013-04-01 21:38:59

Daaaw fuck.
Meh. Have you asked Xionico about getting in on Paradig? I know he's been pretty much dead to the internet after XM3, but if you could get him it'd be pretty kick ass.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

I'm not too hot for his style, tbh. Call me a hater, it just doesn't float my boat.


2013-04-02 01:37:31

Completely understandable. It's definitely about as unique as you can get while staying in the realm of Madness, but by being so different from the norm I imagine there are quite a lot of people that just plain don't like it. I was a bit of an anime berd for awhile, so it appeals to me.


2013-04-02 05:31:43

my test http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/2d4baea600 55062fd919de56481c5817 so what could i improve on please tell me

Alpha-Nuva responds:

a lot of stuff. watch more animations one frame at a time to get a better understanding of how characters move.


2013-04-02 08:44:43

Well i will not join anyway *yao ming meme* Because they are better than me


2013-04-08 16:12:13

oh gud i didn't really improved last time i wanted to join dis...

Alpha-Nuva responds:

http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/08af70848d 3dcda36070d7d33305cc68

Alpha-Nuva responds:

Still needs lots of work. I can't let you join, bud.


2013-04-10 13:01:10

well ye i tryed to make a delamortes style.
http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/21930a1718 4b0b04527ce8e3a155074f
The recoil back is a little exagered and the reload is too fast,
the rest is good, um yea i think lol.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

Recoil's definitely exaggerated, but reload is fine. If you can just stop your character from hopping every time he fires, I'd definitely let you come on board.


2013-04-10 14:09:59

I have a style?


2013-04-10 19:16:48

Thanks for the invite :D
I'll try my hardest not to disappoint you :)

But I have a question. Is it is necessary to use the krinkels's sprite? Because I'm beter with the kenamii's sprites.

Alpha-Nuva responds:

tighten up your skills a bit and you can join. this was a little slow and stiff.


2013-04-12 15:47:47
