Treasure Hunt 2008 RESULTS 4/4 Nov. 17th, 2008 @ 10:59 AM Reply

Last month we had a Treasure Hunt contest that resulted in thousands of recommendations for overlooked submissions. I decided to break the results into four parts, the previous three being:

1. Overlooked Movies
2. Overlooked Games
3. Overlooked Series

Today's post is an attempt to point out some other noteables from the Treasure Hunt.

I'll start off with the list of great submissions that never got enough time or love on the front page:

Moving along, I'm gonna highlight less-known movies by well-known artists.

Marciano was a fav in 2002 with the Kill Toons series. He really came into his own with Galapagos in 2003, but I wasn't even aware of his later submissions, such as Rapaz:

  • Rapaz
    Rapaz by marciano

    Type
    Movie
    Rated
    Ages 13+

Similarly, AlantheBOX has been a highly celebrated artist, with a long-awaited DVD in the works, but perhaps you haven't seen some of his lesser-known stuff:

Backseatkiss has always been a favorite of mine that never gets the attention he deserves. You can start with this overlooked submission:

Psycosis91 has done some great work with sprites, but this video never hit the radar:

Scarydoll became an early king of twisted films on NG, with Lost Dias Sin Dias. That same year, he released this overlooked film:

Disk Extermination was front paged, but not the glorious version 2:

Kol-Belov is another long-celebrated artist whos name has come up repeatedly over the years. You may have seen PUSTOTA, but have you seen this?

Noiserover was featured in the first Treasure Hunt post with Comfort and was an early inspiration for the Vampires collection with The Undead. Here is one more submission of his that you should see:

Jim Ether is another artist who made a splash in the early days of NG with his submission, "Pimpin' Aint Easy." He later became unhappy with it and replaced it with a video about hot dogs. Since you can't watch Pimpin', you can watch this:

So that wraps it up for the 2008 Treasure Hunt. I announced there wouldn't be any prizes for this fourth post, so if you missed that, I'm sorry... No prizes. Everyone wins the prize of getting to watch lots of cool movies.

I'm planning to attempt a quarterly treasure hunt, focusing on three months at a time rather than the entire history of NG. On that note, it's about time to get started on the 2008 Flash Portal History!

I'm also gonna try to make more posts about specific artists. I get nervous that doing this will only create a new way to disenfranchise those who get overlooked, but I think it will be worth doing.

What are your favorites from the list above? Also, share your thoughts on artists you would like to see spotlighted.

It was really a huge treasure hunt this year, much more impressive compared to our previous treasure hunts that we've had before!

Great job everyone.

Oh, crap, I missed the treasure hunt?! I was looking forward to it but my PC crashed and wasn't working last month DX

Well, congrats to the winners, and I suppose I'll wait 'til next year >_>

I don't even know all of those artists, but some submissions look good. I'll be sure to watch them later!

And it would be great if the treasure hunt was quarterly, although there would be less flashes in each treasure hunt.

God damn, I've seen/heard of at least a third of these, but thought they had already been frontpaged or in collections or both.

Less Flash would hopefully result in more views for the Flash that's listed.

If I may, here's another submission that was up on the frontpage for less than 24 hours because of Clock Day 08:

Wow if it wasn't for you making this Tom I wouldn't have noticed almost any of those submissions. It's a shame how a good submission can fall off the face of the earth to hardly ever been seen again. I know just from having 1 or 2 decent flashes submitted this year that just stopped getting reviewed. It's rare that they get run into. This should help point out some of them even though a lot still go unnoticed.

Also, have you read and put consideration into the PM that I sent you about my name change? =P

Flash Portal History 2008 is already here? This has been a great year, so it is hard to choose who should be included. I'll do my best to give you a good list Tom.

Series
You must include GunChest in the Flash Portal History 2008. GunChest suddenly appeared in 2008 (yes I know about his earlier submissions, but my point stand) and produced many great movies.

Angry Dog is another series that must be acknowledged.

Fallen Angel is another great series that appeared in 2008.

DOMOFlashVideos only joined NG in 2008.

Other Submissions
Games

Movies

That is all I have for now. I hope that it helps.

I actually remember voting on that one when it was in the judgement state or when it was just submitted, haha.

Anyway, gongratulations to those who won somethin' and I'm off to waste my free time for using my price then! :)

Do we suggest flashes for the flash portal history collection or is there another way?
