Hey mirek03!
Welcome to the Challenge

I made the assets download link a little more visible now in the main Challenge announcement sticky thread, so feel free to go download them

Also, I need ya to change/update your WIP thread TITLE to conform to this please:

Format your WIP thread title like the following:
"USERNAME FX-01-2008".

EXAMPLE: "RAGECGI FX-01-2008"
(The "01" part is the challenge number)

Thanks again for joining, and I look forward to watching everyone over the next 2 months

Good luck!

Sweet thanks man!

Yeah regarding the title, all you have to do I believe is go up to your first post, and click the EDIT button in the lower-right to edit your post, and change the main title to:

MIREK03 FX-01-2008

OK, after logging it out at CGI school for a few eeks i might just be able to start this challenge

what i need to know is..

is this to be in movie media

story board format (as in telling the story comic style.., swap 'story' for VFX)

is this one comped image and how we came to the image.

i looked through the rules but couldn't find the answer.., i have so little time and too much work. hopefully i can combine some downtime with work here.

Hi Mirek

Glad youve got some time to do it!

In the general rules it says that its an 8-10 second video, and goes over the final deliverables (and codecs)

I think the stroyboard is just to get your idea across and can be pretty much anything (scribbles over pics, to a full blown storyboard)

hey guys, i sit everyday thinking i gotta do something here.., but the more i go to CGI college the more i know i know nothing. i really dont think im good enough yet.., not that i worry about losing.., just dont know what to do. college is FULL on.., i should incorporate the two projects.., this as one for college but cant.

i will have a crack at it time permitted but i dont want to do the smash the dam thing.., id rather do a total extension over haul an colour correct/gain, the scene.

home work is killing me.
