I'm not sure if it will do any good or not, but would anyone mind me plugging this project on a-m-v.org? There are actually two Christain AMV projects going on now, so it might be a good time to ask for help with animators.

Good idea! AMV.org does have good resources at it's disposal though.

I don't know if you've done it yet or not, but go for it! I've never actually looked around AMV before, but I have seen things people work on from there. Animators are really the key part of this whole project, so if they possibly have people who can help, it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I've updated the main thread and my website. Could character designers please put your files up on imageshack, because I don't want to waste lots of space on my site for the pictures, plus it would make the thumbnails look more consistant. Thanks.

I put my character design up on photobucket. I don't understand imageshack.

I'm sorry to say that I will not make the next (possibly two or three) meetings. The meeting last night came when I really had lesson plan writing to do and I'm starting to realize how much my student teaching is affecting my daily schedule. Since my main "job" on the project is still forthcoming, I'm going to lay low for a bit and focus on my career job.

If people need due dates for motivation, I can throw this one out. My spring break begins on April 10th. If we can have the intro episode voice recorded and storyboard done by then, I can set to doing some serious work on the animation. (I think we can do it in one month.) In between there, I'm going to play with Flash to get a feel for it and plug the project as best I can. But if I seem quiet, please don't think, "one of our animators abandonded us."

Also - please don't take this for asking people to mold their schedules around mine. I don't know what the other animators' schedules are. I'm only suggesting the 10th because it seems a reasonable amount of time.

If I get done any other things for the project, I'll post them here. Thanks for understanding everyone! Feel free to e-mail me if there's something going on I need to know about.

We have a script for episode 1 already. ^_^ Oh, and we also have a new website:
http://mejika.originalcharacters.com

I changed a few minor things, the most notable being that all the images are hosted from the same place and I put the leaf background on all pages.

I should clarify, episode 1 is a dream sequence, so only Corean (the human girl) speaks in it. I'm currently working on an audition write-up for the various characters. I'm taking a guess that starting the auditions for VA's is still about a week or two in the future.

Which reminds me, who is taking charge of listening to the voices and/or casting the parts? Or is that a group effort?

Could someone send me the script for the first episode? I assume it was distributed at the fourth meeting, which I was unable to attend. However, I should be at the fifth, barring unforseen circumstances.

I'm at an anime club meeting tonight, so I can't show up, but I am just about done with the audition page. I'll PM it to you when it's ready. ;)

Just to check: will there be a meeting next Monday? It would be helpful to know as much beforehand as possible.

Yes, there will be. The reason I didn't show up last time is that my sister-in-law came by at 5:30 and didn't get me home until 9:30. I called CR as soon as I noticed I was too late to see if anyone had shown up.

Does anyone not want to have a meeting? I know two people in the group are graduating and with the end of the semester here many are needing to study for finals.

We had another unsuccessful meeting tonight. It was scheduled to be at 8 CST/ 9EST. Topics were to be discussed, such as "Storyboard progress, Voice Actor Submissions, And scheduling.

As Doe some of the members of this project are near graduation (me included) we were going to discuss if we need any meetings.. for a few weeks...

Let's not allow this project to die, folks, we have put in a lot of hours trying to figure out what to do with it. I truly believe we can do this, I believe that there is a message in this feature, and if we get out butts in gear we can truly accomplish great and awesome things for Christ..

I will be absent for one more week, and then I will be able to participate fully again after that. What is everyone else's schedule?

Production, production, production for the next 4 weeks, then I'll have a week break, then I'll be in Arizona for two months, working jobs, seeing friends and family and producing my audio drama. I'll be open for voice actin but that's about it!

I feel the need to apologize. After being the one who brought this up I ended up not being able to make it myself. I will do my very best to attend the next meeting. Should it be the week after next?

Just to let everyone know, there is no posted due date for auditions on the website, however, I did have to post a due date for the voice acting alliance board, and that date was June 10th. If you want to audition and you can't make that deadline, PM Doe or me and we'll be happy to work around it. But we would like to start actually casting and recording soon. ^_^ (BTW, starwarsboy90, we did get your audition already. Thanks!)

I also sent a message to all the people who said they were interested in helping animate, but if I somehow missed over you, please PM me! Thanks!

Hey all. We haven't had a meeting in a while - usually due to low turnout. Last Monday I wasn't there because I had just moved into my new apartment and have learned that my Internet will be wireless. I've tried getting on Yahoo there and I swear the longest time I've stayed on is seven minutes straight. I'll try to find an alternative to use during the meetings, but right now I'm not sure what I'll be doing.

If you haven't checked the Mejika email account recently, we've received new auditions.

Also, does anybody want to do a new meeting schedule with the start of summer? I know at least my schedule is completely different than it was during the Spring semester.

Hopefully we'll be able to have a full meeting soon. As of now we're still having them on Monday nights at 9 EST. ttyl!

For me, just about any time is fine provided that it is consistent. I can make time for such meetings, but if they change it will be very inconvenient. Also, I will be gone from the 25th throuh the 30th of this month.

We're accepting any auditions, I believe.

If anybody showed up today, I was unable to log onto the Internet at my home. It completely stopped working last Wedensday and we haven't been able to figure out what exactly is wrong. My computer was being used to try and trouble-shoot the router. We were literally on the phone for 3 hours today trying to fix it - yet it still doesn't work. I just ran to my school to borrow the wireless here to see if anyone was still on and to write this message as soon as we gave up on the phone instructions. It should be fixed by next Monday because our company decided to just send someone over to fix it in person. I'm extremely sorry to anyone who this has inconvinienced or who showed up for meetings that never occurred. I'm trying to work everything out as fast as I can. If there have been any discussions which I've missed out on or topics brought up, please tell me. Thanks!

I'm *so* sorry. I completely and totally forgot yesterday! >.< I really wanted to talk to you guys about animation and stuff too. :(

Do we want to meet another time this week or just postpone until next week?

Very sorry again. I'll set up an e-mail reminder for myself so it doesn't happen again.
