Ok…here’s the deal. For a while now I have wanted to do this project. But it needs a flash animator, or any kind of animator, who is fast, talented, and has a good sense of timing and visual comedy. What we want do to is this:
We will chunk out segments of the ExtraLife Radio Show, say 2 to 4 minutes in length, and then have the animator take that audio and create a short film out of it. But its not simply just animating characters posing as us and talking. The idea could include some of that…but the result would look more like this. You would cut away to show a funny visual representation of what is being said. In other words, if we are talking about Dean Cain, or Shortround, or some crappy B-movie, you would create funny little cut-aways that would match what we are saying, etc.
There was a show on Comedy Central called, “Shorties watching shorties” that did this sort of thing, only they used the soundtrack of someone’s standup routine. Does this all make sense? We want REALLY good work, someone who has actual talent in the area of animation. Someone who is good enough that these could eventually be compiled into DVD’s and such other things. We know the audio is good…now we just need a visual genius to make life grand.
If you want to give this a shot, here is a snippet of audio from the show that you can animate around. We will watch EVERYTHING we get, but not sure we will repy to everyone. And if something is pretty good, even if its not the one we choose, we will still show this stuff. We will give ALL donations connected with the shorts, and ton of exposure to the guy who does this for us. (As well as a guest chair on ELR.)
