  • NYCC Motion Comic – Call for CBS members collaboration

    Posted by vince on August 4, 2022 at 12:47 pm

    T-minus 62 days to NYCC !

    New York Comic Con will be here in two months, and it will be CBS’s time to shine!

    2022 has seen so many great interviews on CBS YouTube, and our members have been busy creating stunning work – lets celebrate some of that!

    From finished comics, to NFTs, to collaborative works, I am proposing producing a motion comic used on the big screen as ‘sizzle reel’ of what CBS is all about!

    We are formulating a Google Chat meeting, & updates will be posted with an upcoming time & date – This will take place: Saturday or Sunday EST to start discussing what can be used, as well as the time duration of the motion comic sizzler video.

    Meanwhile, please think of all the great moments this year, leading up to NYCC that we can add to the animation motion comic montage that will look great on the big screen!

    Post comments and questions here in this thread, and stay tuned for more info!

    For the ACTUAL execution of the animated MP4 sequence, I am donating my time to assemble the visuals in Adobe After Effects (and some other bells & whistles) and have it all ready for Buddy Scalera in good time for NYCC.

    Thank you everyone!

    Vince

    I suppose the question would be; what do you need, in what format, and by when?

      @philipspace – I am looking to have all the assets and start working on this in September .. BUT – before then, I will make a post to have a collective Google Chat online with everyone who wants to contribute!

      Stay tuned, and thanks so much

    This is a good idea @vince – Thanks for jumping into the conversation @mikedoestheart & @philipspace – Also tagging @artsmermaid @redheadeded @dknigjht1980 @jarrodelvin

    I submitted the panel proposals. I should hear back within a few weeks. It’s very smart to think in advance, since this sort of stuff takes a lot of time.

    If anyone has links to examples that will spark the imagination, please add them here.

    We should definitely include highlights such as Vince’s pirate NFT drop, tales beyond’s numerous appearances at street rests, the eternal con team shaking hands and kissing babies on the campaign trail interspersed with some of @philipspace ’s beautiful renderings (having his Gwen Stacy picture and sinister six pieces in particular would look stunning)… some necrotic panels in there… a panel or two from my BitterSuite comic… and then depending on the approved panels per Buddy, some fly ins about that…. I’m just spit ballin’

    Hello everyone,

    Sunday Sept 4th – 8:00PM EST Google Chat to discuss creating a motion comic for this years NYCC !

    STILL (flat) images of this years comic content to be animated into a cool MOTION COMIC for Comic Book School & Buddy’s stage panel.

    JPEG, PNG, PDF formats are good, no Photoshop files*

    A Google Drive Folder and release forms will be produced and shared in THIS POST.

    Stand by for the invites! See you in September!

      Good detail on what’s needed to get this to work. I already separated an aesthetically pleasing panel i thought would be good for the motion sequence. i made PNGs of each of the elements that can move, and made naming conventions for them. would that be okay to upload when the time comes?

      hi A.A. Rubin – 🙂

      The Google video chat has been delayed, as the Labour Day wknd is officially over –

      in the meantime:

      https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1PJw5JzO7B_uE61A5YlEVDMPGJao0AYPq?usp=sharing

      Is a GOOGLE DRIVE folder where people can upload their imagery to be animated.

      I haven’t yet made any release forms, and the Google Drive link is public – if those still interested to get your work up on stage, animated, for CBS’s panel at NYCC please upload your work!

      @buddyscalera @mikedoestheart @philipspace @redheadeded and any one interested to submit flat JPGS, PDFs, PNG imagery for at short 15 second animated segment to highlight the efforts of the CBS community in time for NYCC, – please contribute!

      Cheers, Vince

        As we chatted about, i uploaded my part of it to the Google Drive already — @buddyscalera I also uploaded one of the pose NFTs to Vince’s google drive with some of the layers separated so he can add some movement to one of the cape poses that looked epic 😀

          I hope to announce proper Google Chat day here, as Sunday 4th was awol for many.

    Guys, I am just getting caught up on email and message board posts that I had to push to the side temporarily.

    I have the three (3) panels that Comic Book School will host at NYCC. I plan to spruce them up this weekend and post the list.

    Thank you so much for taking the lead. I really, really appreciate it.

    Special hugs to @vince @mikedoestheart @philipspace & @thesurrealari for moving this forward.

          Hello All!

          Ok, I am done (and recovered) from the TIFF film fest , here in Toronto. I was P.A. for press junkets and movie star interviews. I am now hot onto our NYCC motion comic assembly.

          IF anyone has difficulty uploading to the Google Drive folder, please let me know!

          email me or reply here in the thread. I think I can get a dirty dozen talented CBS members work flying into action and hope to have 1-2 trial screen tests before the big event, come Oct in NYC.

          cheers

    I hope to get the panels listed today or tomorrow. That should help with the motion planning.

    I use PowerPoint for the show. That can run an MP4, so if we want to use them in the show, we can use them in the actual sessions! 😀

    @buddyscalera – Awesome! Fantastic line up for NYCC – excited to add these fine folks to the title slates!

    Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday have different topics & panel guest line ups – Would head-shots or just name titles be best to showcase the line ups for each day?

    Big thanks so far to @thesurrealari @mikedoestheart @philipspace for uploading their great art for me to animate. I will be adding the Anthology efforts artwork, NFT projects, as well.

    If there are ANY outstanding types of offerings/projects/ that are worth showcasing in the animated motion comic for NYCC 2022 – give a should out! Looking forward to making this shine. Cheers all.

    Hello all – The Members Work section is being assembled and the title design at the bottom of the video is also being designed/animated.

    For all your smiling faces, I shall need a nice quality mugshot that you would like to use – JPEG or PNG format is fine, HOWEVER: LARGER than 400 x 400 pixels in size please!

    Why? The higher the resolution, the better you will look, on the big screen!

    Mike Ponce has already donated his awesome profile pic – see screen-shot for how you and your main website or social handle will appear below.

    Thanks !

    Hey all,

    Things are progressing nicely, a big thanks to our 5 talents who will have each 4/5 sec of their work animated for the big screen @krisburgos @thesurrealari @mikedoestheart @philipspace @jarrodelvin

    The entire motion comic sizzle reel looks to run for a good 60 sec now, and at the end is a title card with everyone’s unique QR code for anyone in the audience with CBS to scan and check out.

    Download this and test it out, with your cell camera away from your screen. Staggered QR codes you say?.. A: Yes – because that allows someone from 50-100 feet away to scan the code they want with enough space around it! Ha-ha*! *(evil Bond villain laugh)

    @buddyscalera indeed has a clicker control unit to stop/start the MP4 video slide as its inserted into the PowerPoint. The very last slate, after this credit will be mine and a nod to the royalty free music used in the video.

    Stay tuned folks! The final reveal I could do for Sunday or Monday – Oct. 2 or 3 – evening time, EST.

    This will give enough time for any tweaks for the final run, and @buddyscalera time to test it out as well.

    cheers V

    Hey hey, the CBS Motion Comic for this NYCC is DONE!

    This gives the man of the hour; Buddy Scalera, a good week and a bit to test drive this as a slide in PowerPoint and any last changes, are easily met.

    Shall we do a Google Video Chat reveal? – time zones included – does the upcoming weekend of Oct. 1-2 work for everyone?? @jarrodelvin I believe you are 14 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time @philipspace I believe you are PST and 3 hours behind the east coast.

    Thoughts everyone?

    That’s awesome @vince ! I’m free Sunday to see it.

    Hey @buddyscalera , not sure if you know, the Creator Connection shows up fine in the NYCC app, however your other 2 panels are nowhere to be found. I was looking to bookmark them… but no dice.
