Some of you were saying, "wouldn't it be fun if we all did a joint cartoon project?"
I said nothing.
I remembered "Anijam" which is on youtube but probably won't be there for long. Most animators hate youtube. I've surrendered to it.
Marv invited a group of animators to participate. He didn't tell anyone in advance what the character would look like. You received the last sequence of drawings from the person who went before you, did your own cartoon with the character, and then sent your last sequence of drawings on to the next person as designated. You had to do fifteen seconds. Around this time various "jam" projects were attempted by different groups of independent animators. I never thought any of them was entertaining. There's a self portrait project I participated in too.
Anyway, I'd totally forgotten about it until a youtube buddy sent me a link.
Later Marv Newland tried a more ambitious joint project, where a group of animators were asked to storyboard a reinterpretation of the Faust story. I still get a kick out of the storyboard I did for that. Unfortunately that project never got further funding.
I could just keep posting about bear paradise for two weeks but other people's vacations can get wearying to hear about I think.
