I personally would go with 1 film made well.
The only problem is we might not be allowed to be in a group of 8 and work on 1 film. One thing we already know if we wouldn't want to be split up to work with other people so there's a bit of a problem there.
I'd say for the summer,definitely initial ideas, storyboards and animatic as well can be done and maybe start on the modeling. texturing i think will be too ambitious to have done by the end of the month. We don't want to do too much and not have the tutors disagree with it.
So at least everything at least done that we can pitch with should be great and done by then.
Also, once we've set up a final choice of animation we'd work on for the third year, i'd like to buy a domain and hosting to have our site and have a personal blog on our server. This will make things professional and give us the serious, must finish feeling.
It'd be awesome, rather than having to have a stupid blogger or wordpress, we can have it all on one domain.
it would be best to meet up during the summer or at least have a skype group conference to discuss each persons role and tasks.
Also, VERY IMPORTANT!! WE NEED AN EPIC PRODUCTION SCHEDULE WHICH WE'LL NEED TO STRICTLY STICK TO, so we need to hook up and get that done!!
