Sweet picks there!

Also wonder how awesome will the Pico Day be this year!
Maybe I might actually do something for it this year, heh.

Wow, the movies' votes were pretty bad this month D:..

Half of the runner-ups were way better than some of the top 5 imo, but My NG was a good cartoon :).

The games are all awesome too :D!

Something thats like really special and commemorates the day more than a freakin certificate and money thats gone by the next day on strippers and booze.

Luis is absolutely correct. Send the strippers and booze directly to the winners this year.

How about if the prizes are something unique this year rather than some rediculous armor-games-like cashothon... its nice to make money but those contests are a dime a dozen. fuck that. it'd be nice for people to actually be motivated to make something for pico day because they enjoy the franchise and the site that bred them and not because they have their phone bill they need to pay.
sounds interesting, just know that shipping is a bitch,
shippin a piece of paper is easier :-D

now im curious, what you have in mind?

- A small "bonus" award could f.ex. be that the winner gets his profile image handmade, instead of the common level aura... or this could very well be something that the monthly winner would get when winning. it'd look cool on the forums at least. :) Maybe giving the winner some other site priviledges that would last for a year or so?

- #1 award, a trip to hawaii.... :) no really, a trip or maybe an invitation to the annual mod-meet, all expenses paid. Trip trip. E. Or a trip to philly, with a "Pico-Party" arranged by NG. Hook up some local NG audio artists (and/or other) and off ye goooo.

- a 1:1 Pico-dummy. with holes.

I'm surprised It's a Halo Thing only made runner up, despite it being a bandwagon fan-flash, it was quality work with grade A art, animation, script and voice acting.

wow, i was sure "It's a Halo Thing" would have made it to top five. I'm just as surprised as the Awesome's Creed being a top 5 animation last month.

oh well.

A number of people would like to make it to Comic Con each year and meet up with everyone and hang out.
The expenses of the trip usually keep them from doing so.
Perhaps this would make an interesting prize for upcoming competitions.

Why do you say, "Don't vote for videos."

If they're made in flash they're technically still animating.

Hell you're technically still animating IN FRAMES when you're filming something.

I don't see why must hold such a bias. I mean I understand that a lot of videos are usually stupid.

But you can paint with a camera just as much as with a flash brush. If you know what you're doing...

To do the things in Flash that a newbie could do with a camera would take generations. Like literally, to animate all the movements of a person in a 60 second film segment, I would have to work into my old age and then pass the cartoon down to my hypothetical son, who would continue to work where I left off. It's an entirely different art than filming, which already gets crazy exposure on sites all across the net.

Flash deserves its own sacred place. Until then, Newgrounds will have to do (bahaha that was like a joke only not as funny).

Sorry but making a real film takes just as long, I wasn't referring to youtube crap.

You guys think that you can just film something in 60 seconds and it will look like you want it to.

Haha.

Ah, like "My Newgrounds"? Well, obviously stuff like Afro-Ninja's "How to be a Guitar Hero" (which was nicely thought out, long, and well edited considering it was a one-man-production) are deserving of the attention they get. And yeah, making a "real film" takes just as long if not longer than it does to make a "real cartoon", but I haven't seen much of either around here ;)

Yes exactly, someone might be inclined to vote for an animation of that nature, but then see tom's little "NO VIDEOS" note and not vote for it.

lmfao seriously

i can say from experience, a well animated flash takes about ten times as long to make as a well edited film. ive made numerous decent live action films that i edited, in their entirety, in the course of a few days. i've also made numerous flashes that got so complex and difficult that they've taken months, even years to make... and im STILL not finished with em.
and if you want to get into it even more, a traditional animation takes ten times as long as both a flash and a film combined.

in short, dont act like you know the first thing about flash animation when you've never made one yourself

Hey, f00d, havent you heard?
Holding a camera in your hands magically grants you the power and knowledge of every medium ever, including all various forms of animation and the skills required to do them.

i mean thats how Tex Avery did it......
