wow. in only a year of knowing about Flash, ive become part of the largest family on the web. When i first learned of Ng, i wasnt aware that it was a public submition thing . I thought a groupd of pros sat around making up shit. In fact, i didnt know how or wat they were using to make them. I remeber thinking, man , if only I could get a job just to put some ideas on that site. Soon enough however, i discovered the program was Flash, so i got it and within 2 days made my first movie. I submitted it to NG which made it thru ( Anti - Tabaco Comm. ) with a surprising score. And thus my love for Flash Animation and public critique began to grow on me. Now here I am nearly a year later with over 11 movies on NG and one with an award. Ng really brings out the best of us long time artist. ( ive been obsessed with art since they cut the cord ) and i spose this post is really to Tom. Thanks TOm , u really brought out the best of me man.
