Thanks so much for the Daily 1st!!
Woo Thanks for the Front Page!!

===This is a Serious Documentary so if you want to learn something then watch it===
==Don't review/rate it bad because it isn't funny or isn't action packed==

First, of all I am extremely happy, I won an award for Environment Excellence. Not sure if it is best film about the environment or best film in the category even though I was entered in the Documentary category, but anyways Woot.

My school recieved a grant from the PG & E to help improve my school's computer labs and stuff, but the deal was that we needed to create movies about energy efficiency. So I decided to make my movie about Hydroelectricity. This originally was suppose to be live-action, but I was lazy and my multimedia teacher(Mr. Cutts) told me to animate it because of how much time I wasted doing nothing in class. So I created this about 2 months ago and my teacher recently sent this into a film festival and I won in Environment Excellence.

3 Gorges(The Dam used throughout the movie) and Hydroelectric Diagram were both traced. Although I will take credit for coloring and animating them.

Why Wind Farm Suck is an Audio in this documentary about me ranting about how useless Wind Farms are if you are stuck in a dome.(Joke don't take seriously)

This is a Pro Documentary showing all the Pros in Hydroelectricity not the Cons.

++Wow, thanks for all the reviews even though some reviewed bad. I would respond to all, but I decided I would be repeating myself. If you really want me to answer then PM me.(Answer a Question not respond to your review)++




Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very Informative!

Its good to see newgrounds as more than just a place for obscene animations and high paced, seizure inducing games... Not that thats a bad thing either!


Rated 4 / 5 stars


I liked the way you presented the positive attributes as compared to other sources of energy. This flash is pretty smart and informative without being boring. But still I'm going to have to say the nuclear power Is the way to go, since that is what I do in the navy.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


really good animation, but i'm mostly writing this review cause you said "Shaft!" really abruptly and it made me lol.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Now I'm not voting it down from 10 to 7 because it's not funny or action packed, but I AM voting it like this because it's a little choppy. Examples:
1.The arrows in the hydroelectric dam simply appear at the beginning. Maybe use a mask or alpha fade?
2. Sound bits. Somtimes they're cut off. Sometimes they seem to interrupt other sound bits.
3. Not choppiness, but the fish... do I remember right that they were just cricles, eyes, and triangle tails? It's a little "fishy" (As in the bad way)
But other than that, it seemed fairly fine. Also... what was the fps? It seemed JUST a little low, and I know it wasn't lagging. If it's below 24, I'd say bring it up to 24 :D
