This collab is relatively different from most collabs, it basically is ONE story line divided into 5 sections, and each section created by a different artist through their own artistic opinion on how it might have been.

i was very lucky to find the animators i found for the collab, i like em all because their styles are so different, and i think that in a collaboration project its always nice to bring different styles together and see how one thing can be viewed through different perspectives. But, now speaking of the animators i have to honestly admit that i am extremely thrilled to have someone aboard the project like Luis, i remember back when i was just starting Flash, my brother and i used his "Grime vs. Squeezy" bit as a good example of a flash animation for a long time. so it's funny to end up in the same boat now. That was just a little factoid i for some eason felt that i needed to point out.

...This collab was first started off by a good friend of mine, i was only an animator making a part in his collab. but a few things got in his way and he didn't have time to get it all done, so he handed the project to me. and due to technical complications with members of the collab and information about this and that, i decided to completely redesign it and start from scratch.

since i already have SO many projects I'm working on i at first thought about accepting to lead this collab, but i think this idea was really interesting and would allow me and other animators to experiment with their more serious side. plus, i always wanted to make a Noire movie, or something along those lines for Newgrounds, and i thought this was the perfect opportunity.

anyways, this is the "Valentine '29" collaboration project, my first collab, maybe my last... but who knows. i hope you all ENJOY...

I liked the whole thing exept for scene two. The animation was brilliantly done, amd I hope to see more!

Not bad at all

Pretty clever colaboration. My only negative comment is too short. But I realize that time is limited. Wouldn't it be a good idea if it was a bit more authentic? The meat of the story is there so I can't bitch about that.

I'd look forward to another of these works depicting some historical event. Please keep 'em coming if possible.

Someone suggested I see this because I'm planning a collab with a similar concept. I must say, I LOVED this. Very cinematic. Loved the music cues (Fargo, some version of the Syriana soundtrack, etc.). Excellent work. I am inspired.
