**Thanks a TON for the February nomination new grounders! Just to have one title next to of all those other great flashes means a great deal to me! AND A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED out of the kindness of their hearts! Really, thank you! And I'd just want to assure everyone once again that I read all the reviews you give me on a daily basis! Thanks to everyone who has left one!**

We've all heard the song. I decided to make a music video out of it!

After three painful/agonizing years of work (one year creating it, one year mourning the loss of all my work on it due to a virus, and one year recreating it from scratch), my music video for Haddaway's, "What is Love?" is finally complete.

*If you're animation isn't running smoothly, try turning down the quality by right clicking*

Although it is a day late for Valentine's Day, hopefully you guys can still enjoy it!

Don't forget to watch past the credits! ;)

Some fun facts :
Movie length is 4 min and 30 seconds
12,193 total frames
1,375 symbols
absolutely everything was mouse-drawn
Countless cans of Mountain Dew and Mexican Fiesta flavored Cheez-Its were consumed during the making of this music video
Along with the hidden items, there are secret buttons throughout the movie. See if you can find them all!

I take no credit for this awesome song but all Animation was done by me.
This movie got me thinking.... What exactly, is love?

OK until taken to a chat board

Was enjoying it and had found most of the clues until I clicked on a billboard and was taken to a #@!% chat board. couldn't get back to where I left off.

Ruined it and I'm not going back through.

Didn't seem to special for me...

I know I'll get a bunch of people saying my review was "unhelpful" (even though putting flat 10's and saying "That was funny." is something nobody seems to find unhelpful), but I only found the movie "okay."

Graphics: The stuff synced up to the sound well, and some of the visuals were good. However, the FBF animation was generally very jagged and the tweens didn't look very natural (more easing). Additionally, a lot of the gradients didn't look very good (usually too contrasting).
Style: Ripped off South Park. Ruined any chance of you trying to look original, really. Sorry. (Also, the breast animations during her run didn't seem very tasteful.)
Sound: Good song. A little worn out, but not terribly so. With that said, it's not something that I think makes a good music video animation. Definitely more of a club background song more than a storyteller.
Violence: -
Interactivity: Easter eggs are always nice; make movies more fun.
Humor: There were little tastes of humor, but certainly nothing laugh-out-loud funny or anything.
Overall: It was actually a little sub-par for me. In the future, I'd use a song that doesn't sound so ambient, avoid the borderline-cliche theme, try to get the motions to look more natural, work on the gradients, and definitely, definitely use a more unique visual style. Hope your next movie goes well.

Kinda Boring...

Good animations, but the Flash gets boring really quickly..
