Flip book?!! That's right! Hi-tech meets old school. No screen, batteries, or bandwith. Just you eyes, hands (opposable thumbs helpful),and your brain.
Instead of a Fan Movie, I adapted the preview trailer of Killzone 2 for the Playstation 3 (first shown at E3 2005) into a Dragonfly Game Flipz™ - Animated Story Flip Book, a new, innovative book format.
Game Flipz™ is the creative fusion of game graphics and the animated flip book, with a touch of comic book layout thrown in for good measure. Dragonfly Game Flipz™ brings static screenshot panels to life.
I've been working on Dragonfly Flipz™ for some time now, and would like to get feedback from you game fans. I plan to post more Game Flipz™ for other games soon. I'd also like to hear from the game creators, artists, management types, and book or magazine publishers. I love to have this books mass produced, but for now it is a "Concept Demo" and "Not for Sale". If you like it, send it to friends and Sony, etc. I plan to send a copy to Guerrilla Games just for fun.
Dragonfly Flipz™ Game Flipz™ books are a great way to collect all that great game trailer movies that are being produced, posted, viewed and downloaded. (This version of the Killzone was free download from the IGN/Gamespy website) Personally, I love the feel of a book in my hands, to enjoy the great artwork in the trailers.
Also I believe the Dragonfly Flipz™ Mini-book format is a great showcase for 2D and CGI artist making narrative shorts. I thinking of doing a "How To..." feature in my blog on my www.dragonfly.net site. Let me know if that interest anyone.
So, thanks for viewing this.
