that is not a hidden gem,
its been around for years and i even.....god forget it..
Isnt there suposed to be a time limit on the animations we find?
A- There is, in fact, no time limit on submissions. One of last year's winners, Mug Hug was THREE years old at the time of the 2008 NG Gem Competition.
B- It was released on 07/19/2007. that makes is approximately two years and 4 months old. That's not especially old. Certainly not as old as Mug Hug was in 2008.
C- There are plenty of flashes that have become finalists this year alone that are 2 years or older.
D- I don't see how anyone can not consider this a gem. It's has only a few thousand views, no awards and was not made by a famous NG animator. That's not to say the author hasn't made some quality stuff (he has) but none if it has broken above even 50k views and the last time he submitted something was over a year ago.
D- One of your own gem submissions -Swing Among The Stars Ep1- was submitted on 10/09/2007, or approximately two years and one month ago. Only 3 months "younger" then my pick. <cough>Pot calling kettle black. <cough>
In short, this is a great flash, made by a talented author that deserves more attention and I firmly stand by my decision to enter this as a gem and am pleased Tom has seen fit to add it to one of the finalist categories.
I rather suspect that you just don't like this animation , which is fine, it's a controversial topic but don't pretend that you are upset because it's too old or not a gem. I actually liked "Bang" better then any of the other entries but since I submitted it, my vote wouldn't count anyway. I'll just talk it up a bit instead.
Really different. Author's flatmate turned a class lecture on God, that he recorded, into a short rap. The author made the animation after hearing the rap.
This is completely original, well animated and has a good beat to it. I tend to enjoy replaying music videos more then any other genre. Plus, it's a thought provoking argument that was stylishly done. I really enjoy listening to it and would ask to consider it when voting for your favorite nerdy submission. :)
