We need a team name and logo!

Id like the team name at least to be decided quickly. (say, by next week).

This has been discussed before;
http://forum.magicball.net/showthread.php?t=4672

But little agreement was reached.

Anyone can suggest a team name below, and anyone can also "second" a suggestion.
All suggestions that have been seconded will be put to a poll.

By default, if nothing else, and will Ell's permissions, Id suggestion something just like "Magic Ball Network Studios" (or similar).
Shorter or more imaginative names would be preferable, however as it would be easy to make a nice logo from.

People can also volentier to make the logo or suggest ideas.

I'd be glad if I could be of any service for the RMP... even if that service may just be an utterly small one.

I'll see if I can dig up some more nice names, or perhaps see if I somehow can use my imagination to come up with some new ones.


With regards, the homeless one

"Magicball Network Studios" is quite large
"Magicball Studios" is much better if you ask me (MBS)


Well something like that, couldn't get the perspective and "wave" good enough

oww..I like that.
Although that's just begging to be animated in a rather annoying and time taking way

How about actually doing some work on the movie instead of making up names and logos?

I like that. I like that quite alot. Though I think it'll look better if the film was rolled up at the far end of it.

As for animating it, I don't think it would be that much work. Not compared to the actual movie, atleast.
Besides, it can be animated in a number ways. I'd go for a simple way if I were to do it, since that would probably look cute.

I'm currently working on the first intro (around 5 minutes) of the movie in the hope of inspiring more activity around the project.

I was thinking of animating it going past the camera quickly, with the ball frames slowly building up to a flickering animation of them bouncing.
(while progressing though the magic ball colour stages...and maybe fire ball melts the film strip....)
I get carried away too easily.

Yeah, kinda adeline like logo, but the name is a bit weird, Twinsenicem or something? I've forgotten within looking at it and scrolling down to post, I think it should be simpler. I like Magic Ball Studios, or Magic Ball Network Studios. White Leaf Studios is okay as well. And the MBN studios logo looks quite good, but I think it would have to be animated oddly.

Well, for the films intro I first just thought of a very simple rippling logo with the same sound effect as from the game.
(as if the logo was reflected in a puddle with a drip hitting it)

I think it would be neat if it was drawn (animated) like it is in LBA2.

I'm actually working on a new Intro without a Logo
Every(means every color) Magic ball goes through the Screen and then one Ball comes nearer to the viewer and fades out.
Then the ral Logo appears.
I think it would be a good Intro for el_muertes Logo^^ so tell me what you think

Its a nice idea, but wouldnt fit well in the context of the start of the movie.

The movie starts on a starfield view, quite slowly/gently.
So the logo needs to be simple and its animation, if any, paced slow to match that.
Thats why I was quite keen on just a simple "water droplet" style animation for whatever logo we choose.
Allthough Lightwings idea of it being drawn on would also fit the pacing well.

hmz..for that mater,
What would El's design look like if done in a more drawn/sketch like style?

I'm a bit worried it wont show up well against the spacey backdrop.

This is roughly the backdrop the logo will be put against;



And this was what I meant by the ripple animation;

Something higher quality like that with a nice logo I was thinking.

If you guys don't use White Leaf Studios, I think I'm going to steal it for the Prequel, m'kay?

Of course, since I came up with it, I can't be stealing it.
