    In conclusion, there are around 6 panels and five times 18-20 similar panels in one story.
     
  • How do you define an animated panel?
    Every panel is a 3-5 second long animation or loop that could be a small gesture, move, mimicry of a character, or movement of an object, etc.
     
  • Does the current tender include sound design (SFX) services?
    No, sound design services are not part of the current tender. Tdh will open another separate Request for Proposals for sound designers.

    Stories of Phase III will be based on storyboards submitted by children and will be revised by international legal experts.
     
  • Is it allowed to make changes in the Proposal document's content?
    Any suggestion, request, idea that could indicate changes within the Proposal's text has to be submitted in a separate enclosed document. For instance, request for changes regarding the time frames, division of the subtasks, etc has to be submitted in a separate document. No changes, modifications are allowed with the Proposal document's content.
     
  • Do you have any examples of illustration style you prefer? Do you prefer flat style, 3d style, cartoonish style, hand-painted style etc.?
    No, we have no preferences for style or technique of the illustrations considering that selection and final decision will be made by a Committee that includes various people who have various expectations.
     

  • Do all stories involve only the same 4 characters or more characters have to be developed for the stories?
    There will be more than 4 characters within the game, however all stories will focus on families, family members, relatives. There is always a main character (a boy or a girl) in the focus, sometimes alone, sometimes surrounded by siblings, friends, etc.
     

  • Regarding elements of a storyboard: are the elements of an animation storyboard (aka panels) visually linked to (like a seamless video) or  independent of one another?
    It depends on the story. However, having visual links/connections between the panels are necessary.
