With these, I think I made the page a lot neater and a lot more professional, With this update, I am also announcing that Scene 4 has been rethought, for those who know less about this (Farmer), the 'Cougar scene' was too hard to animate, the legs on the cougar were impossible to draw effectively, thus between Myself and Tub we have came up with a crueller, yet funnier 'Beaver Scene' in which a beaver is looking in awe at it's newly built dam, and watches in horror as it is destroyed by a bomb.
Also, if a new comment is posted, I will add it to this PPT so just post it on the page and I will update it, the same day... This goes to everyone! </li></ul>

8th October 2009, 17:00 ~ Tub Intro finished, Four Seasons Spring used as soundtrack, might spice it up more later. Nathans role changed to artist, I will now do the animation now. As soon as Nathan has the rough dimensions of the characters in scene 2 i will start to animate and put in special Fx and sound Fx.
8th October 2009, 16:06 ~ Lucas We have just been agreed jobs 'n' stuff so: Tub(Toby Jones): Actionscript, most of the other flash. Canning(Nathan Canning): drawing and characters. Lucas(Luke Batchelor): Site update, info update, etc... Updates since last time: I have corrected some grammatical errors and added the deadline for entries, also made the posting in order and made the page look sexy, also added a countdown timer to when we shall hand it in. Tub has created some generic sound for our animation such as lightning and static for the TV effect. Canning is waiting on permission for use of the drawing tablet. The competition opens for entries on Monday 11 January 2010. The deadline for submitting entries is midnight (GMT) on Thursday 1 April 2010.
Note form Mr Farmer - 08/10/09 Guys this sounds amazing. I can't wait to see it finished. I have had a look at your .fla file and the TV static is great. This is a excellent idea with lots of humor. Next job is drawing your animals, characters etc. Keep up the great work.
7th October 2009, 23:00 ~ Tub Nathan and I have created a rough shape of the animation, added some sound like intro, first, third scenes and the credits. Also made the TV static. Credits are made, just need spicing up I'm starting on special Fx like confetti, and we're working on the into should be done soon! Food Chain.fla ~ Wouldn't let me email. Note to Nathan and Luke, Post date and time of updates, just to make it more clear what we have done/are doing.
7th October 2009, 16:30 ~ Lucas Storyboard: Intro: The Food chain (written in chain's ), fade in for 1 second, play for 2 seconds, fades out for last second, (Spring playing) Static from TV Grass seed grows majestically, with benevolent music, shining in the sunlight, then get mowed down by a lawn mower (morning, by peer gynt) Static from TV Bird pecking at caterpillar,constantly missing, after a few pecks cat pounces on bird (none) Static from TV Golden eagle standing strong, get's hit by lightning, turns into a roast chicken image (brittainia) Static from TV Big cat hunting, music getting tenser cat accelerating towards bunny, elephant stands on, bunny licks cat face (family guy fast animal slow children) Static from TV Bear swipes at fish, missing, finally catches, big fish tail slaps, KO on floor fish flapping on face (gushing water music) Static from TV Jaws music, sharks fin towards seal, when shark about to strike, tense music bit..killer whale jumps, eats (jaws....) Static from TV Human tensing muscles as seemingly unbeatable. Standing on no.1 on pedestal, shark in small fish-tank, bear with his fish, happy, confetti, 100 tonne weight falls on pedestal music, (Da, Daa) cheering, fireworks), medal shape, more confetti Credits role on-top of weight.
Idea from Lucas: Food chain food animation add some humor could be about a minute.
