This Whole Motion Books Thing

So what's all this nonsense about Motion Comics?

Are they going to be The Next Big Thing or is this all a bunch of over-hyped fluff? Llama Emoji-03 (Sparkles) [V1] 

If you have an existing Comic, would you adapt it into one? 
I know Marvel have been using similar motion techniques for a while now so it's nothing particularly groundbreaking, but nice as a tool available to Deviants, no?

I'm thinking they would suit Graphic Novels more than an ongoing Comic, simply because of the sheer extra workload involved...

Personally, I think they're a promising medium and I will probably experiment with something along those lines at some point, but heck- making a normal stationary comic is sapping ALL my free time and energy these days, so I can't really imagine animating every page too. But it does seem like an interesting way to bring your stories to life, and I LOVE the ability to add sound and music.

I already have a list of songs I listen to as a soundtrack of sorts, to help inspire me in the right way for each scene I'm drawing. If it weren't for copyright issues it would be SO COOL to be able to use these as background music in a Motion Comic...

However, I'm unsure if Motion Comics are a bit distracting from reading a story. Things like panel size/placement affecting timing, being able to view a whole page at once, re-reading bit's at your leisure...time becomes space in traditional Comics and adding real time elements seems to break that a bit. 

The only kinds of motion I've seen work well in this respect (without breaking the spacial pacing of a comic page) are animated gif pages like this and this.

If you add much more motion than that, I'm not sure if they can really be called Comics anymore or have become... something elsePhilip Fry (I'm not sure if) [V2] 


Anywho, in other news....I'm thinking of bringing back Sketch of the Week. Some of my old watchers may remember it :)
What do you guys think? Would you be interested in taking part?
