I’ve got a class of kids learning Blender. Some of them are working on Blobby, who will wind up as a cartoon face (eyes and mouth) that gets around by bouncing. Right now I’m thinking we’ll do lattice deforms for the overall animation and shape keys for the lip synch.
I’m looking for some short, punchy scripts. Three lines, two characters: Set up, response, punch line. Ba dum dum. Maybe 10 to 20 words, 5 to 10 seconds long. We’ve got a sound studio next door to the computer lab, and plenty of kids willing to ham it up in front of a microphone, so getting the script recorded is not a problem, once we’ve got the script.
And when I say kids, I mean kids, my oldest student is 15. So keep it clean…
Or not. I can filter out the raunchy stuff.
So what am I offering for your efforts? Fame and Immortality? Your name in lights? Not much, really. I’ll talk to the boss about getting the sound files posted as Creative Commons, so you can use them in your own work. Of course, that will probably only apply to the scripts we actually use, so it’s somewhat of a crap shoot whether your particular script will wind up as a 16 bit wav file. How about supporting education? Bringing up the next generation of Blenderheads? Yeah, that’s more like it!
