First it sounded like Jim and Ron would try to bring 8chan back after Jim talked to the Feds. And maybe he has spoken to Homeland Security already. But yesterday the House Democrats subpoenaed Jim to testify "next month". Another month offline would be the longest downtime the site has ever had. Did Jim get on a plane to the States before any meetings were scheduled?
if you have to gross, fifty thousand dollar plus a month, with art, animation or something
what would you do? hang yourself and stab your anus with a long pike? how much will you do? what are they? where would you target that much of sales? what are your predictions so that these things definitely sell? pls advice
Keep all critique request here. Do not create threads for critiques unless that thread is created for the purpose of discussing specific technique/genre. Before asking for a critique, ask yourself two questions.
1. "Is this the absolute best I can do?" If it's not, you are wasting everyone's time, and the critique will be worth very little to you.
2. "Do I want critique?" If you can't handle critique of all forms, you are wasting your time and everyone else's time.

>>31 >>32 And then we discussed information theory! By the time a signal get's to you, the event is in the past. The more complex the event, the longer the signal takes. Accounting for the complexity of global society, if you want to understand the present, you need to study the past. That being said, fauvism is way cooler than whatever the fuck the mona lisa is on about.
Last night I saw 2015's Latin Lover, its a comfy italian comedy, I liked that they spoke french and spanish It felt like a very good early 2000's tragicomedy and I really liked the "protagonist". Kind of pandering at times Also I saw Giant with Elizabeth Taylor and the best part about it was James Dean, I guess I just didnt get it. Its almost too long but it looks beautiful, its a good film to watch when youre going thru a flu on the edge of death but youre surrounded by comfy pillows and soup
I'm posting this so you guys won't create conspiracy theories. I know, my hope us futile. If everything goes well soon the site's and our problems will be resolved. But they will turn the site read-only mode for a while. I have no information how long the process will take. Keep calm and be patient.
Recently started to dig up some "forgotten" films that need love in order to restore or redistribute them. Let me know if you want me to look up a specific film you're interested in, right now we just finished a second try restoration for Madness by Cesare Rau https://youtube.com/watch?v=PI_wY7EUU_M [Embed] and next we want to move onto Cerco de Terror and Appuntamento a Dallas. (The first edition of Madness had a bit of color correction problems, it was too fucking dark at times)
On 8chan someone requested Gillo Pontecorvo's La Grande Strada Azzurra, so we're currently working on that too.
Wow, you finished working on this pretty fast. Groovy music on the opening scene. I saved the youtube autogenerated subs. They're kind of messy, but the timings could be helpful in creating English subs. Waiting for the site admin to allow .srt so I can post them.
>>132 Thanks man, dont worry about it. I'm working the subtitles right now, I'm about twenty minutes into the first edition, once those are done i'll just transfer them https://youtube.com/watch?v=Rw-p5cI3_lw [Embed]
Left the first draft up because I might work on the second one a bit more
>Outstanding experimental animated short. First a few words explaining this film's technique. Ito took a series of still photographs in a gymnasium setting up his camera incrementally in a circle. He then took photos of those photos mounted on stands in the same gymnasium (again in a circle) He then photographed these onto film in stop motion. The striking (and somewhat unnerving) effect is that you are flying into an infinite array of photos within photos. When I saw this as part of a program of avant garde Japanese film, one viewer brought their toddler, who immediately began to wail uncontrollably at the vertiginous display. If you ever get a chance to view this, please do, but don't sit too close to the screen or you may get motion sickness!
as we all know, 8chan has been down for a while and we don't know if it'll be back, however the site still can be accessed from http://18.104.22.168/ just wanted to share in case anyone wants to archive the board's content I've already archived the ressouces thread: http://archive.is/HYQNO
>>118 Nah, I'm not some poltard who imagines shills following everywhere. But I think mob frenzy has started to affect high-level decision-making much more than it should. While I'd be surprised if these archives were removed, there's already precedent for it happening. In 2016 archive.is removed all 8chan content. So I'm not taking anything for granted. Jim could make a fool of himself before Congress to start a new wave of 8chan hate.
>>116 right, forgot about that site, since I usually see archive.is more used on the chans. and I agree that one can't be paranoid enough, I regret not making a discord or some place as a setback, even an IRC would do it. >In 2016 archive.is fuck, I didn't know that, well it lets you download .zip files so at least there's that.
Stylesheet images. We could be here for a while so I'm trying to recreate the appearance of the old board.
I was thinking about enabling country flags too. I haven't done it yet because the flags would be forced on every post unless you use Tor. It's better to have the ability to opt out.
Meanwhile endchan has some cool features -- for example Eye of Sauron: https://endchan.xyz/.static/sauron.html . And I wonder about "Enable realtime" at the bottom of the page. Perhaps that is meguca mode.
>>120 >I regret not making a discord or some place as a setback, even an IRC would do it. Yes I had considered starting a chat for the board. I wasn't sure if it would get any action though. /film/ was already pretty slow, and I'm too busy to be online all day to keep it going.
>>179 Yeah those trees are really good and are my inspiration for drawing nature. Or at least improving my techniques when it comes to drawing nature. As you can see I'm nowhere near as skilled as the people whose art I've been posting ITT.
But they really do help as references, because seriously man, drawing trees is hard. You absolutely can't draw every detail, all you can do is give an illusion that there's detail by, as I said previously in the thread; Playing with the contours and lighting plus color contrasts observed in a real tree. There probably is an autistic savant out there who draws SUPER detailed trees out there though, I have not found such art pieces, but if he's out there, I tip my hat to him with MASSIVE amounts of respect and admiration.
>dude weed lmao
Nah breh, I study chemistry, so I can't afford to rot my brain like that. Plus I also have an addictive personality, so I avoid all sorts of narcotics and alcoholic beverages.
>>181 And a demonstration on how these layers work and why I'm pouring so much time on them. Trees, and anything that involves heavy coloring are the things I just don't like doing by hand when it comes to animation. Thank god for the layers tool.
How would you design a graphic for a top ten list, where every number from 1-10 is an animated piece of shit?
I was thinking that number 1 is simply just a dookie dropping down from the top. Number 2 could be a really slow, wet laid cable of massive shit. Number 3 is diarrhea on a dry fart, a quick single splash from left to right that leaves a shaped skidmark. And that's how far I got.
adding to the only decent thread here to reply to OP with suggestions
>>6 >The Animator's Survival Guide Read this if you want to hate animating. Williams makes it very tedious and takes the fun out of it, and animation should be fun. Check out http://johnkcurriculum.blogspot.com/ instead.
