Old Feb 15th, 2006, 12:43 PM        FORUM EVENT: "THE ELECTRIC COMPANY STORY!"
Our latest I-Mockery forum event has arrived, and this one is for an old show from way back in the 70's that only some of you will remember - THE ELECTRIC COMPANY. Regardless it was a classic show that anyone could enjoy, and it had lots of stars appearing on it regularly such as Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby, Gene Wilder, Rita Moreno, Mel Brooks, and even Spiderman.



THE ELECTRIC COMPANY STORYTIME ADVENTURE!

The goal is to birth a story using manipulations of "Electric Company" screenshots/characters. Look at what other people have posted and create your continuation of the story! It's like that campfire game you kids used to play, only on the internet and with the possible threat of legal action!

You have until March 15th, 2006 to make your contribution to the story.

After the story is completed, it will go up on the I-Mockery.com frontpage as a new article to be viewed by all! (this is pending it's actually worth posting on the site, so make your posts good ones!)

Additionally, we (the admins) will vote for 'best picture', with prizes!

GRAND PRIZE (1 Winner): "The Electric Company DVD set" (click here for info on the set)
THE REST OF YOU: Your contribution immortalized on i-mockery.com and/or a pat on the back and/or a thankful middle finger!

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE

Anyone with a registered I-Mockery.net account can participate.

RULES FOR PARTICIPATION

1. No "not safe for work" material.
Do not post anything that you wouldn't show your grandmother. We at i-mockery love our grandmothers. And yours.

2. .JPG and .GIF file formats only.
No .bmp, .png, .tga, or whatever else you assholes are going to try to pull.

3. No hotlinking.
The image uploader for this event is linked at the bottom of this post, so please use that to upload your pictures. Do not host them on your own space.

4. No outside captioning.
All of your text should be included INSIDE the image. Try to use the "Comic Book Commando" font (which can be downloaded HERE) when you are including narrative text such as "Later that day...", "Elsewhere...", etc. It's not a requirement, per se, but it will definitely make the story look better in the long run.

5. Images must include content from an Electric Company character screenshot. If you have trouble finding a picture to use from the Electric Company show itself, you may use screenshots of other shows/movies that the actors who appeared in the electric company were in. (ie: screenshots of Morgan Freeman in the Shawshank Redemption, Bill Cosby in Picture Pages, etc.)
Not your artistic interpretation of the characters.

6. Images must be equal to or below 600 pixels in width.
So that you don't stretch out peoples' web browsers who run in 800x600 resolution. Also, make sure your image file sizes are within 300k.

7. Maximum of 2 pictures per post, but unlimited posts allowed.
If you have an idea that really needs a couple pictures to flesh it out, feel free to post two pictures to do it. This does not mean that you only get to make two pictures in the story - You can post as many times as you like. Provided...

8. Do not post twice in a row.
Let other people create the story too; Let at least one other person post before you add to the story.

9. Images must be manipulated in some way.
Do not just take a screenshot and add word bubbles. That's not the point of what we're doing here.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Images created in any digital editing program are accepted, be it Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, MSPaint, or others. We only ask that it be of somewhat reasonable quality and that it continues the storyline being created by the other forum members.

Here's how you participate:
- Read the story thus far
- Create an image with content from any Electric Company screenshot (or simply by using characters that appeared in the show)
- Upload your image using the program included at the bottom of this post
- Post your contribution in this thread and include the name of the poster whose story you are continuing. (This will always be the last poster in the thread.)

(just scroll down a bit to see where the story starts)


SOURCE IMAGES

We've got a bunch of assets you can use, but feel free to search elsewhere on the internet for additional images/footage from the show. Anyway, here's what we have for you to use:

http://www.sesameworkshop.org/tec/downloads.php
http://www.sesameworkshop.org/tec/
http://www.sesameworkshop.org/tec/trivia.php
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Electric_Company (good history of the show and a few external links at the bottom)
http://www.tvparty.com/lostelec.html (more history of the show with a few screenshots)

You can take screenshots from any of those pages in addition to any images they have available for saving to use for your story contribution. In addition to that, we have some trailers available for download which you can use to get additional screenshots:

Quicktime:
http://www.shoutfactory.com/av/elect...Co_trailer.mov

Windows Media:
http://www.shoutfactory.com/av/elect...Co_trailer.wmv

Additional video clips:
http://www.tv.com/the-electric-compa...02/videos.html
http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2690989?htv=12

Again, if none of these images help you, you can simply look up the electric company on imdb.com to see who acted in it. You may then use screenshots of other shows/movies that the actors who appeared in the electric company were in. (ie: screenshots of Morgan Freeman in the Shawshank Redemption, Bill Cosby in Picture Pages, etc.)

Alrighty, that's it! Have fun and help create the greatest Electric Company story evar! :o

You guys are making this way too easy for the two people who've already posted to have a chance at winning. The fact that there's some classic Spider-Man cartoons on this DVD set alone should get some of you off your asses to enter the contest :o

I feel such an urge to keep this going until someone with more skill than me (anyone) picks it up.
Not that I wouldn't mind winning.
