There's already a tweetjam thread, but how about a movie focused tweetjam thread? That's twice the fun :
- viewers have fun guessing the movies
- coders have fun figuring how to suggest a movie in a 140 chars max program
Besides the 140 chars limit, the only other obvious restriction is that it must be about movies, or TV series, cartoons, animes, etc. To make it short: if you can find it on imdb, there it goes. Beyond that, you are absolutely free to do what you want. Making something animated or not. Give clues or not. Hide the answer, give a link to the imdb page for people to check their guess without spoiling the title, or even clearly give the name if you don't want people to guess. You can make something new or an already submitted movie. Anything.
When putting then on Twitter we should use both #movie and #tweetjam tags. Currently, used at once they return no results, so we can make the pair our own while still being part of the global #tweetjam.
One last note:
Viewers can already see our code with the "code" button under the program frame, so there's no need adding it in text area. Let's keep this a visual thread.
Here we go with 2 movies from the same guy:
Excellent! I was thinking about making that scene too. Good job!
Ok, to make this post more useful, here's a simple one. Static too, couldn't make him blink his eyes.
@ultrabrite: That is so effing impressive! I'm pouring over the code and I still have NO CLUE how this works! (aside from the special mirror mode). Amazing! :D
@ElGregos:Nice one - captured Homer perfectly (even down to the slight "outward" eyes!)
Tron was one of 2 movies that made you a coder? Here is the other one, maybe?
Edit: had to submit this several times, it seems the web player doesn't like carts beginning with a label name, hence the useless line feed (at 1 char cost).
Okay, I'm totally cheating here, since I wrote this for the first tweetjam, but it fits the theme, so just for fun and not for any undeserved credit, here it is again:
Worst aliens are those among us. I'll show you.
Press any key to put the glasses on. Press any key! PUT 'EM ON!
Oh, you won't put them on, heh? I'll show you anyway:
@VgBlade: Thanks. Agreed - ran out of tokens to control the "speed" of the SFX() as well. There were plenty of other features that couldn't fit in either (alien "dots", ping trail, etc.)
Good spot for the ping timing. The ping also has a delayed start, but didn't have room for that either.
Tempted to do a full/true motion tracker (without the imposed 140 char limit), but I doubt I'll get 'round to it.
Thanks Felice. Here's a new one; I watched the movie tonight and felt like doing something about it:
Hints: colorful, a very long piano... extra black keys here only because of tweetjam restrictions though.
No idea? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0045464/
You heard the news... As a tribute, a #movie #tweetjam about an actor and what is probably his most iconic character is starting now. Who am I talking about? Which character? Come on, ain't that tweetjam below obvious?
To be continued...
Which Roger Moore movie lies in this 138 chars tweetjam?
I couldn't spare some tokens for an endless loop :S
Yesterday's tweetjam was http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070328/
A long time ago, the space movies galaxy suddenly got far far better. Happy 40th birthday, Star Wars!
Which Roger Moore movie lies in this 140 chars tweetjam?
TFW you're stuck at 141 chars and find out a-a%1 is 1 char shorter than flr(a)...
Yesterday's tweetjam was http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090264/
