Deciding on the basic story of the animation, along with all of its key events and characters.
Creating the script for the animation. Each person will post one page of the script, following up on the previous page. Every page of the script must be approved by two URPG graders before being an official part of the animation.
Artists of Bulbagarden will begin to create rough sketches outlining the action of the script. Every storyboard panel must be approved by two other members of Bulbagarden.
The artists that are a part of the project will begin drawing out the scenes shown on the storyboards. (Note that the artists mentioned can submit any number of frames they want. You can just sumbit one frame and then not continue to be a part of the project if you so wish) This is where the other forums enter the project. Each forum will be assigned five minutes of the animation. Every keyframe must be approved by one other person.
Phase 5-In-Between Frames
The artists will draw the frames that connect the action of the keyframes. These frames will also have to each be confirmed by another person.
Phase 6-Final Touches
This will include many small processes, such as creating the credits and disclaimer and putting the animation into a video format. Finally, the video will be posted on Youtube, along with other places if anyone so desires.
