ATTENTION!!!!!!! WHILE WATCHING RYANS PART WHERE IT ENdS WITH PICO HOLDING A LITTLE GIRL, MANY PEOPLE THINK THTA WHEN YOU CLICK DARNELL IT TAKES YOU TO THE MAIN MENU. I MADE THE MISTAKE OF PUTTING THE MAIN MENU BUTTON OVER THE DARNELL HITS BUTTON, I CAN'T FIX IT NOW FOR LONG REASONS BUT JUST BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU HIT THE DARNELL BUTTON, IT STILL WORKS.

My second pico day submission.

Pico fights are the generic thing to do on pico day. I wanted to do that but give it a twist. I decided to do a collab, give it some sort of continuity, but then the idea of making it interactive came to mind. where the viewer chooses where to take it. I admit there are some continuity flaws. But over all it's a first of it's kind. maybe this will spawn more similar idea collabs that will all together be more polished ideas of this concept.

As for the collab itself, i am really happy with the result, personally. I think that it consists of a good variety of styles and approaches to a pico fight. I think the videos produced by the artists are very fresh and interesting to watch over and over. I seriously cannot pick a favorite. Each is literally fantastic in it's own way. For that i thank the artists who joined up to make this project what it is.

As for Thanks, there is also a good handful of people i'd like to thank.

To start off I'd like to thank MaestroRage who produced some great musical pieces. Unfortunately time grew short, and couldn't finish up some great music he had in store.

Secondly, Christian B. Christiansen, cause i thought of this collab with him and he stuck to making the intro and his part through whatever circumstances.

Thirdly, the Swain, who jumped in yesterday to help how he could through some technical difficulties the project was going through.

Fourthly, Corey Griffin (Atomic-Noodle) who i know is great at making menus and displays from making my site and was open to designing some kick ass menu work for this collab. I suck at making menus.

And lastly, (but definitely not least) Keith, who successfully fixed all the faulty programming at the last minute and saved this project. Thanks Keith, I owe you a bunch of drinks at the London Meet in August :)

AS FOR TECHNICAL STUFF, DON'T FORGET THAT THIS IS AN INTERACTIVE MOVIE AND MAKE SURE YOU GET TO WATCH ALL THE POSSIBILITIES. JUST SO YOU KNOW THERE ARE 4 POSSIBLE ENDINGS.

I hope you enjoy... Happy Pico Day everyone, and Happy birthday Tom.

uber funzorz and stuff

I think this movie just made my day, it's awesome!

i LOVE the fact that the artists are so different, (eg. van harken and dan berry) I've literally just played thru the film 4 times to watch it, I felt using scene select wud ruin the feel of it.

so yeah jdisasoldier is a complete idiot, you don't into the PICO day winners for nothing after all ^^

Poor attempt

The transitions from one scene to the next were very poorly done. There is just too much difference between the styles of animation, and it makes the entire project look rough. A collab should be more seamless, but this doesn't flow well at all. The interactivity aspect is a great idea, but it wasn't done very well either. The choices didn't seem to really give the viewer much say in what happened for the most part, and you really only get to make a couple before it's over. All in all, a good idea gone bad.


AlmightyHans responds:

too much difference in style? isn't that what a collab's about? A collab should be more seemingless? I'm sorry but most collabs out there are music collabs or a list of short movies. I think this one is a bit more seemingless ecause you have a continuous series of actions, maybe not increadibly continuos from one to the other, but very clearly does go together. As for the interactivity aspect, you and a few others are complaining about it not having enough choices. Currently you have 4 possible endings if i were to add just ONE more choice. the total of artists that would be in this collab is 15. and i wouldn't have been able to handle that many for this style collab. Where 15 people would have needed to keep continuity and such. and clearly explain to 15 people detailed rules, and make sure everyone gets it right. This collab might not be perfect, but i'm hoping that the concept will be taken by others and slowly evolve to great submissions for the site.
