Very creative, but needs some improvement
As a fan of Pokémon and a HUGE fan of Left 4 Dead, I was very impressed that you came up with such an interesting idea. However, as an audio production major, I feel that there could've been some significant improvements with the sound levels. Your selection of Pokémon music to accompany certain parts of your animation was really well-timed (i.e. when Louis takes the pills) but when I started watching the animation, the music was at a comfortable volume but then out of nowhere that first hunter sound effect came in and almost blew my ears off. Perhaps you could've increased the music volume or lowered the volume of all the L4D SFX a lot. Also, you might wanna look into applying some bit distortion to the L4D sound effects to give them an authentic 8-bit sound so that the Pokémon music and Left 4 Dead SFX have a very similar quality to them. However, as far as art and animation goes, you pretty much nailed it. It's perfect for this animation. The sequence of the battle was excellent as well. Great job!
As a beginner to managing sounds, I made the music quiet to lower it's size, I think lowering the sound fx to 8-bit quality would sound crappy and then no one would shut up about it.
Thanks for the advice anyway.
Umm yeah I'd say the only reason I'm giving you such a rating is because I've never had a flash animation boggle my mind so damn much in my entire life. Congratulations for most likely breaking the record for the longest and most fucked up cartoon on newgrounds.com
Oh by the way, congratulations for gradually wasting countless amounts of time for those bored enough to stumble over here for the past 6 years. I will say that's one hell of an anniversary.
I'm somewhat short of words here, but that's only because I can barely describe how I feel about your masterpiece.
On top of creating the animation, which was amazing might I add, you actually wrote the score for your project! That became clear to me shortly after I noticed the keys being played on the piano in the beginning match what's being played (yes I have perfect pitch.)
The story was also brilliant, in that it follows the passion of a struggling and lonesome musician who has nowhere to escape except for the piano. Your timeline and selections of scenes was of professional quality; especially the way it concluded.
Your extraordinarily talented. Keep up the great work! =)
P.S: Ignore the morons who are accusing you of 'ripping on metal'. I, for one love metal yet that was one of the most interesting scenes!
I LOVED IT!!!!
I gave this a 10 for sound just cuz my buddy Pete played Chris, unfortunately he wasn't given the proper credit, but I just let him know, he's sending you a message (I believe his NG account has 'scoogi' somewhere in the name). Keep up the great work!! 5/5
I honestly don't know what Tom saw in this but...
....it didn't make me laugh at all. Here's a question for you though. How could you have possibly needed 4 people to make this flash? I believe the only possibility would be 1 person did the animation, 1 person did the music, and 1 person held a microphone while jerking his friend off. =P j/p man, though I wonder if anyone else got curious 'bout that. honestly, i think you can do better than this guys. the only upside is that i ended up waitin' for sumthin to happen and ended up watchin the loop for like 10 seconds, lol. sick shit
Graphics (3): Nothing too be proud of.
Style (4): Loops have been done before, but this one fooled me, maybe cuz I'm high.
Sound(5): Yeah...it definately sounded like actually jerking off. Scary.
Violence(0): That is if you don't count the damage done to my eyes and ears.
Humor(2): It was ...kinda funny...I guess. Guess if I'd cracked a smile I"d give u a 4.
Overall(4): Improve your skills and come out /w some serious shit.
got a good laugh at the end with the 'i'm sure he will' and the dad has the lube in his hand. by the way...at the end it sounded like u had a guitar chord from 'innervision' by system of a down followed by a record stopping not even half a second after it was playing. i may be wrong, but my ears are pretty damn good. anywayz...GREAT animation dude! keep up the good work! =)
one hell of an animation dude!
soad is my favorite band ever, and no one will ever top them. and the way you portrayed the song bounce was VERY amusing, and just FUCKING AWESOME to sum it all up. i love how u even got a little of marmalade from soad as well for the credits. keep it up!
||nn||-_-||nn|| ROCK ON!
Heehee, Marmalade has to be one of my favourite SoaD songs.
Nothing beats the early days =)
Oh man! I'm about to work my first black friday. cuz i just got my first job...and omggg I already pictured myself doing the same thing. Waking up at 4AM (which ill have to do if im gonna be at work on time). It says on my schedule I'm working from 6AM - 11PM. That's FUCKED UP! lol
its nice to see jill enter the room and it kinda just play thru a sound clip edit from Resident Evil that I heard like 5 years ago along with a poorly designed door. It's a shame that despite not animating anything else, you could've designed the one background just a 'little' better. And Jill too, but what do I know? I personally don't have experience submitting flash with an old sound clip and miraculously have a 3.34 Score due to a bunch of n00bs voting this thing to be good. All my BLAM bl0ng to this!
dude omg you are the man!
system of a down has been my favorite band since the album toxicity came out, and I'll say NO ONE in the universe could create a better system of a down music video.
Graphics: 10...you drew the bass player VERY well so mad propz for that
Style 10: Of course, System of a Down!
Sound: 10 ...might I need repeat myself? Loved choice for Radio/Video as the credit music.
Violence 4: Eating live chickens is a little weird
Interactivity: 1 Good preloader but not too fancy
Humor: 2 I laughed my ass off when Bush was there readin the paper.
And Cool popped up, then Fonzie stood by a brick wall doin' his thing "in denial"
Overall (((50))) psyche, only can give you 10. Best I can do. You're going places man, keep it up. There is more political controversy now than there ever was in the history of the U.S. You should professional script and animate Political Toons. You should be #1 of all time of NG as well. KEEP THEM COMING! :-D
