    Guys, nothing so far? If none will participate then the contest will be closed down.

    I've been working on and off on my project! It's too bad, perhaps there wasn't enough time.

    Regardless, I want to keep working on my map. :)

    EDIT:
    Now that I think about it, I don't think I would have been able to finish it in time.

    Perhaps everyone working on this should reply, so we can get a hand on the number of contestants. If necessary and agreed upon by everyone, we can extend the deadline?

    I've never made a cinematic before but I've been meaning to sit down and try my luck at it. I've always wanted to lose to Ungoliath. Though as always I'm about to move again and hella busy. But I am, amazingly, pretty free today so maybe I'll start and make some headway on it.... I have no pretense that I'd make anything in time but maybe I can submit things retroactively à la Arowanna. How DOES anybody find the time and energy to do these contests anyhow? Ooh... wait, I know, maybe I'll take my friend's ADD medication .~. jk kids, drugs are bad, dont drink or you may end up wasting life on teh hive

    Also, just curious, how do people here structure their workflow? Storyboard? I find that my inspiration comes incrementally in different days- but I don't know whether to nail it down and get everything to come together or just work on my half baked ideas ...

    I write down my ideas on a piece of paper. Then I try to describe each idea within one sentence to get the general sense. Then I choose the one I feel that I can connect with the most.

    The second step is to write out a more detailed script separated into scenes. I try to get most of it on paper but not write everything. So, now I can start gathering resources for the script I have in hand. You might have to change the script sometimes since you might not be able to find each and every resource you'll need.

    Lastly, work on your cameras, sound effects, animations, dialogues, etc...

    Studies have been keeping me extremely busy! The timing really sucks. I don't think I will be able to finish my project before the 28th

    I do hope this goes on. Have an idea and a little progress (time being in flux for me as self employed, but hoping).

    I mean, it doesn't have to be. Maybe time it differently or push it a little. Sounded like several people wanted in if it just weren't at this very moment, so who knows.

    I see no reason to close a contest due to lack of time and start another going through all the trouble again. Just push it till it bleeds.
    Either that or create another time frame for it in the following months.

    I mean, this time it failed - but just save it for later. The theme is still very interesting.

    One month is not much. As I've already mentioned, cinematic maps are a bit harder than gameplay ones in mini-map contests since they require planning in multiple fields: story, cameras, environment etc.

    I agree with Deep, a month is no time at all for a cinematic esp when people likely have little time to spare for a hobby such as this anyway. But I'd be interested in challenging Ungoliath and/or anyone else interested in a less time-restricted setting (say... By the end of the year? Or whenever they get done? Haha).
