Author Comments

Um, guys? Its a collab, there's wasn't SUPPOSED to be even a vague plot, so if you're just going to review and say 'OMG it was liek borring and so i haeted it whar was the story? lolololol 0!' we've heard it before!

Hey thanks for the front page tom! Here, have a key to the city! And daily second, thats pretty cool!

Animators who I haven't co-authored will be co-authored as soon as they add me! :)

This is Cardboard City

When nick and I (moro) were trying to come up with a theme for a collab we could lead together, we were kinda stuck. We both wanted something that could be made cohesive, something that all the parts by all the animators could have in common, without looking too similar. We puzzled together for a little while, and then I started thinking, what about a city?

And that was that. Both of us LOVE textured animation, and we decided cardboard would be one of the more interesting substances to play with. With that, the collab was started, and little by little, it picked up speed, with gradually more and more people seeing the thread and trying stuff out, which was pretty cool. One of the main things we were going for was for the animators involved to stretch themselves, and we think that happened.

Haha, well, I guess I should post the lineup we've got for you fine folk tonight :)

Moro
Nick
Handsome Jake
Ziwon
Dr Clay
Vincoid
KyleDaFox
Biskits
MarcyVF
Biskits
and Goat-Man

these were spectacular the whole way through, when I made them do push ups they didn't whine, there was no trouble at mealtimes, we just all had a really good time.

Vincoid won the house of cards contest though. he's quite good at that ;)

The collab ended up being huge, a lot larger than I had expected even though compared to other multi author stuff here on NG, there weren't a huge number of animators. In total it's... well, might as well do ALL THE SPECS AT ONCE OMG LOLOLOLOLOL

specs

7674 frames in total, including menu, preloader game, dr.clay's piece, EVERYTHING!
319.7 seconds long, which makes it like, over 4 minutes long
24 frames per second
700x460

so ya, myself I was really shocked this morning when I added everything in and found it was almost 8000 frames long. I've never had that before. thats a lot of frames. but we still can't say its OVER 9000 because ITS OVER 7000 just doesn't have that same ring to it, haha. :)

Hmm. what else. UMM.

well ya, as I said, all these guys were really fun to work with, and I think it shows. Myself, I'm quite pleased with the standard thats set, and hopefully its good enough for you high end critics out there too! :)

COOLIO NIATO was nice enough to make us an absolutely amazing preloader game, which was really cool of him to do. Its an awesome game. I'm addicted. My record so far is like, 25000 but Im sure a bunch of you can beat that, so if you do, PM me with a screenshot and I'll try to do better than whatever you got. hahaha.

but seriously, a round of cardboard applause (the loudest kind there is, of course!) to coolio for that.

I THINK THATS IT!

so, without further ado, we present Cardboard City. Enjoy the show!

-Moro, Nick, Jake, Ziwon, Vincoid, Goatman, Marcy, Kyle, Dr Clay, Coolio, and Biskits :)

oh and if you've read all this, congrats! there's also an easter egg on the menu ;)

that is all.

how dare you tell anyone how to vote!

if the collab was weak, which is was way under par for a collab, then it was weak.

why would create a 4 min animation without a plot? i mean i know it took allot of effort but unfortunately for you i feel it was in vain. 4 minutes is too long for me to sit through something without a plot or point. if it didnt have one, and someone like myself said something about it, maybe you should listen..

even the idea of an animated cardboard city was bad. i think it wouldve been more awexome if you had made real cardboard city.


MorrowDays responds:

how would we have made a real cardboard city and submitted it to newgrounds?

why would we make a collab without a plot? Im sorry, have you not seen any other collab on newgrounds? A lot of them are just visual presentations done to have fun and work with other people.

but whatever, an opinion is an opinion.

good

Some retarded people can only enjoy a movie where someones face gets ripped off. I know that newgrounds is mostly amature animation(NOT AN INSULT), i think the opposite of everyone else, i think that its a great idea, and with even more time put into it, it could be in a film festaval.
