    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...
