Dartenbeck—and everyone—-else to kind of recap the community movie progression.
What we had done at first was come up with a few ideas for stories. Then Mcguiver came forward and said he had started a animation idea with some ducks—His story was “going south” . He also had done some nice work on a couple of duck models. Seeing these models as making a great start I took his movie idea and added a little detail to the story to what we currently had been voting on here along with three the other stories. Then Rashad came along and kind of organized things and setup “jobs” for people in the production of the movie—at least a start to get some organization. He and Mmoir are the producers. We had to start somewhere. So then being a community project we decided to have a vote on the stories we had had so far and hence this poll set up by daz forum moderators—(thanks again)
Concurrently - the idea came along that we really needed some “practice” on how to work together to make a community movie so we created the first shot practice movie thread of “easy come easy go” . Mmoir had put out the wristwatch as some modeling practice and some folks chimed in. We also worked out some storyboards and some ideas how to use Carrara for storyboarding. This is when Antara made some sketches of the alien head as who knew at the time if we were not going to be making an alien movie. Then Mmoir made a boy character and Wendycatz added face morphs . This guy will be used for the “easy come easy go ” first shot practice animation. Then a coin was made and some folks worked on getting more animation working on the dude for easy come easy go.
So watching the voting eagerly in this thread—-we had been hoping for more votes and participation. And so we are just trying to get more participation at this time ....and the “easy come easy go” first shot movie is a great way to start on things until we solidify the movie idea. I think the folks we have on board are great and willing to work hard but we really want to do something special. Not just do it.
So some of the folks have been particpating and some leading in a major way like Mmoir and some just helping, making models, storyboard, rigs etc and some just commenting or making story ideas and some just giving advice but still—-its all good just to participate;
So I have tried to run through all the threads of which there are too many—(smiles ) and here is the list of folks who have participated in at least some fashion . If I missed anyone let me know and I apologize.

So not exactly a huge list but not a meager one either. Hopefully we get more as this progresses forward. ANd more folks become more actively particpating. It is a community project. So progress is not going to be in a straight line always——and sometimes we will need to go back to the start as it were if necessary——-its just the nature of the beast. The key is participation and support and the willingness to work together.
So it may seem a little chaotic what we have been doing so far—so I hope this helps a little to see what we are trying to do.
