The best GARFIELD FALSH ANIMASHUN COLLAB ever!

2011-09-11 19:38:54 by TmsT

Falsh animatorz, this is our collaborative tribute to Jim Davis and his hilarious, lasagna-munching cat, Garfield!

The Plan: Everyone selects a different Garfield comic, then animates it in a different style and/or genre and with any other tweaks and twists that would qualify it as a parody and not outright copyright infringement.

An example of this would be "Lasagna Cat", with its live-action cosplay sitcom interpretations of Garfield strips. (Following them up with related Garfield music videos as Lasagna Cat does would not be necessary for this collab, but such extensions on a strip are 100% acceptable.)

All levels of artistic competence are eligible for this collab - as long as it's animated and some resemblance to the original comic is evident! The closing date for submissions is flexible, but Christmas is a good cut-off date if there are still outstanding submissions by then.

All the animations will then be compiled into one SWF and put on several sites on the interwebs (including Newgrounds) where the magic of viral social media will make it arrive on Jim Davis' computer and he will laugh, as he has made us laugh so heartily over the years.

TO JOIN, just head on over to the Facebook group to claim your strip to adapt into an animation. Or if you can't use Facebook for whatever reason, just email me at frencheroticfilm@gmail dot com!

The Facebook Group is here!
Invite other animators to join, by all means. The more, the me-ow-rrier!

The best GARFIELD FALSH ANIMASHUN COLLAB ever!

"ZOMG you're the guy who make french Erotic Film! I used to watch that all the time on AlbinoBlackSheep back in high school! :D"

you mean like YESTERDAY :trollface:

also newgrounds needs a REPLY to comments feature like DEVIANT ART or any MODERN web site has. seriously ng is coded like shit.

also what resolution and FPS are we on? i hope 24 fps otherwise ill get pissed. resolution? i dont care much about. i hope you can open CS5 FLAs.

(Updated ) TmsT responds:

Yes, it's 24fps, default size (550x400) though you can add your own borders to make it look square or widescreen or something else. Format is Flash 8 or earlier coz I'm too cheap to afford Flash CS3 or whatever it's up to now.

Hi! Thanks for telling me the secret to "french Erotic Film" bonus track, so many years replaying it and it never occurred to me to right-click...
Also I can't wait to see the collab, I'm a fan of the old Garfield (back when he was actually fat)
