Those red and green lights aren't just danmaku this time, because A Very Walfas Christmas
is right around the corner!
Once again, we would love to see all kinds of submissions from across the Walfas community. Our submission standards haven't changed much, but here they are:
-Keep it short. The shorter your sketches, the faster-paced the video will be. Longer sketches may be split into segments if needed.
-No copyrighted music. Music licensed under Creative Commons is highly recommended. We don’t want any strikes on the WSW channel. There are plenty of copyright-free and Creative Commons resources for music (Kevin MacLeod’s incompetech.com being the first and most well-known that comes to mind). Touhou music, vanilla and remixed, is fine, too.
-Keep it winter-themed.
-Keep it PG. We will bleep and blur certain things ourselves if necessary, but please keep in mind that we have a fair number of minors in the community, so please show some discretion when it comes to potentially objectionable content.
-Keep it Touhou. These specials are meant to focus on and celebrate Touhou. Please keep OCs and creator cameos to a minimum. Background characters for the sake of extras are acceptable.
-The final video will be edited and rendered at 1280x720, 29.97 (interchangeable with 30) frames per second. For best results, your sketches should conform to these dimensions if your resources allows you to. Sketches at 15, 10, 6, and 5 frames per second will look clean in these dimensions.
-Anyone can submit a sketch, and submit as many sketches as you want! No membership required! Fans and affiliates are more than welcome to contribute! The only people we won’t accept sketches from are those who have been permanently banned from the Wagon.
-Care about your work! Challenge yourself! These collabs are the perfect opportunity to put your best creative foot forward for the community and show what Walfas is capable of! Bump up that animation quality! Tackle voice acting and lip syncing! Use original writing and jokes that you can call your own and be proud of!
-Please be mindful that some sketches may not get in. We usually have a small handful of sketches for each special that we've had to cut for quality or content reasons.
-Render your sketches as either a WMV or MP4 file, then upload them to a file host such as Sta.sh, DropBox, or MediaFire and send Spaztique a note or Discord PM containing the link.
Chances are this will be a belated Christmas special as it usually is, so the submission deadline will be January 31, 2019, or once we have at least 7 minutes of material, whichever comes second.
In case anyone needs help with their sketches, please provide a link to any post you've made asking for help
, and we'd love to see people volunteer in the comments below as Animators
and Voice Actors
. Animators take completed scripts and audio tracks and animate them; Writers take sketch ideas and help expand them into complete scripts; Voice Actors provide voices for completed scripts.
If you're going to volunteer for any of these roles, please make sure you're available and willing enough to provide your help.PROJECTS IN NEED OF HELP
