Good editing and all that, but this is Newgrounds, not YouTube. Post some flashes.
I am also a big fan of puzzles and that's why like it because it was only about the jigsaw puzzle and contained no metaphors whatsoever.
Also, sweet animation and voice acting.
Sorry about the AIDS.
I'd write some poetry here too, but that would be gay. So I'll just reminisce all those happy times we shared making quality flashes together and shed a tear...
I'd be so proud if I was alive to see this... Never let go of your dreams!
Oh, you. You can be Ringo if you really want to be.
I can relate...
Consumerism is the plague of the western civilization. It's the source of all that's wrong in this world.
That's what I've been trying to say!
Oh, I get it....
The butler did it, right?
WHAT THE FUCK MAN DON'T SPOIL IT
My spanish is a bit rusted...
...but I liked the part where they died.
That's Chinese, not Spanish.
I don't really care for these political flashes. I dislike when people force their own opinions to you. I think this could even be considered to be real propaganda. I'm a panarchist and always will be, no matter how good your arguments might sound.
But because this reminded me of "Sloth Rape: The Musical", 10 stars lululululz.
You'll be pleased to know that my campaign for a ban on sloth's from public areas is going well and is set to be a huge factor in the coming election.
...except that there's no way a sloth could fap that fast, so -1 star for that. Other than that, it was excellent.
See, this is another reason to hate the common sloth. Ruining my fucking flashes.
Nothing really good about this...
Well first of all, I have to say something everyone already knows:
This would've been better on Youtube. The menu is a nice touch, but it's completely useless. The extras and photos are really uniteresting, so this would've worked better without them as Youtube-video. 12.1 MB is pretty much for a flash-movie.
The film itself was just plain bad. The whole plot seemed really immature and it was hard to follow it. I'm not even sure if I understood what was going on. It was also waaaay too short. Didn't like it one bit.
I also didn't understand why the quality was so bad. I know it was intentional, but why? If you were trying to get that old sci-fi movie-feeling, you shouldn't have used such modern camera-angles and shot so many short takes. Not really retro, in my opinion.
All the props were pretty simple and looked too cheap. They seemed pretty "household" to me. You didn't really manage to achieve any retro-futuristic atmosphere with them.
You also should've picked a better location to shoot this film. The background seemed out of place and it was a bit too bright for this kind of movie.
The music was really unappealing. It was repetitive and actually sounded quite annoying.
However, the intro was really well made, so I'll give you 3 for that.
I agree that narratively speaking it wasn't the perfect story, honestly I was just going for a cheesey little story to experiment with the Super 8 camera for the first time and make something retro looking while I'm at it.
If I were to use the traditional camera angels, I would have needed a set. Because these cameras don't pick up light so well, for the Shots they filmed back in those days, sets were built to have controlled light. They also had more than one day to film. I only had one, and was racing against the sun. So I had to shoot quickly and still keep it interesting.
The props were cheap and house hold looking, because they were.
Also, it's a short movie because it's really expensive to buy and develop super 8 film. And there are only 2 places in all of the U.S. that develop super 8.
I appreciate your response, and just decided to give you some feedback on your points.
some personal advice; don't act like you know what you're talking about. you might run into someone who picks up on your bull shit.
