Okay, this is a re-submitted version of this, and I did this because:

1. When I submitted this the first time, I accidentally had the dimensions wrong, it was set at 550 x 400 when the actual size is 400 x 300.
2. I forgot to put in the actual credits.
3. I forgot to put in a bonus video. (At the end, after the credits)
4. There were a few glitches I noticed in the cartoon itself.

So without further ado, here's Television Rules the Nation as I intended it to be. I really hope you enjoy this, I put a lot of time and effort into it (Been workin' on it since Dec. 24th).

New techniques, great results

Another great submission from you Peter. I always love seeing your submisions, as you've got such a simple, but very effective portrayal of the tune.

I love the outlines that youv'e used here and the identification of the characters by the colour coding is such a neat part of the movie that I wouldn't dream of asking you to use anything else. The buildings and the radios / TVs / EMPs were really well conceived and animated.

I liked the homage to TRON that you put in with the motorbikes, it worked really well in this technocracy, as it has obviously become a society dominated by technology.

I look forward to your next submission.

Thanks man. I was pretty proud of this cartoon, and I thought the EMP's turned out pretty cool as well. It took me awhile to get'm right, but it was worth it apparently. And yeah, you caught me, the bikes are based off the TRON bikes, I figured someone would notice eventually. Anyway, thanks for the review. I appreciate it, as always.

Around the world!

This was really cool movie, i liked the combination of styles, the basic story and the music and bonus scene. The whole concept behind the whole thing was really really cool. And i can tell you put lots of effort into this.

Graphically this was very good, the people and backrounds were drawn quite simply but very effectively when combined with the colouring. The entire black coulour was very interesting, along with the neon lines of the outlines, worked very well. I also like the style change between the outside world and the We Ctrl U building, like they were all made of stone. The animation was nice and smooth throughout the whole thing and there were some nice efffects in there.

The audio in this was fantastic, and i assume it was the song that inspired you to make the flash? Unless you got really lucky :P
Daft punk are a brilliant band and that song fits perfectly with this flash. The lack of voice acting didnt matter as it wasnt needed.

The extra scene was a very nice touch, sort of a gag reel thing which is nice to see, overall this was a really cool and i hope to see things with similar style from you. Very Nice flash!

Jimtopia responds:

I really appreciate the second paragraph, because that's exactly what I was going for, the differences in the styles between everything else, and the "We-Ctrl-U" building. Like, you hit the nail on the head. Cool.

Also, yes, the song inspired me to make the flash. If it didn't, I'd be the luckiest guy on earth for finding it.

Thanks for the review.

Very good flash you have here. I really like the style of this movie. The coloring is somewhat unusual and very unique. Shows that you put a lot of effort and thought into this movie.

The song fits the movie perfectly, even though it could have been a bit louder (the tune in the credits was a bit louder than the tune in the actual movie).

The plot is very good and also very thoughtful. One has to think about what happened in this flash before one can fully grasp the story.

The bonus scene was a very nice addition to the movie. :)

Jimtopia responds:

I did notice that the credits were a little loud, but I kind of think of it as "waking you up," lol. Anyway, I'm glad you liked it, and I'm glad you liked the little bonus movie, I figured most people would enjoy that.

Animation was cool

It was a really good flash.
It had nice animation and a good song.

Don't worry about not getting an award, it's not like we do this for an award right....right?

Jimtopia responds:

An award is more like icing on the cake really, and it's kind of disappointing when you work hard on a cake for 2 months and you realize there's no icing to complete it with; so you're just stuck with an icing-less cake.
