I meant to post about this last night, but forgot.
I've looked at the episodes, and well, from my standpoint, I just don't see how 19 episodes can be put into 5. If they were shorter, maybe, but these are a bit to long for merging.
I have come to a conclusion on how we can fix it. You can think about this, disregard it, or do whatever you want.
I think while we work on an animation episode of TEC, we switch to another series. We alternate every episode. Now before you say this is crazy, here me out. If I were you I wouldn't even consider doing this, but since the episodes have a run time of only 5-10 minutes, it could possibly work. If they were 15-20 I wouldn't even bother posting.I think if we end up working on two different series at a time, we would bring in fresher ideas, wouldn't be bored on one thing maybe no one will like, and we would probably end up using the same backgrounds that we're making for TEC.
I see some people doing this with shorter episodes and they have the same amount of subscribers as the groups that make longer animations. If we set a goal for finishing an animation in 2-3 weeks, I could see this as being a great start for us.
If we did decided on yes to this, I would suggest using one of the three role-plays below.
1. @Aislinn_Mollisong1's The Mollisong Files
This RP would work very well. They aren't in writing episodes, so we can make longer/shorter animation episodes depending on our time frame. One thing too is that it is already a finished writing. We know what we are working with and what we need done ahead of time. A plus is also that we could end up using the same backgrounds from TEC for this one.
2. @Ariella_Newheart's The Arbitrary Antics of Ariella Newheart
Even though longer episodes, this RP is really easy to follow and would also make nice animation series. Since the plots are in set positions, we can use basically 3 different backgrounds for just one episode.
3. @Emily_Purplebottle's Emily's Purple Bottle
I could see this as a sister animation to TEC. Even though it's a fairly new series, it would be very easy to make while the writer is still writing more of it.
There are even more role-plays that would work, but I could see these 3 animation series made first.
Just some more to think about.
