Hi,

First : It's an INTERACTIVE movie ! click on gardens !

it's my first submission on newground, but i look at this website since... hum... maybe, a long time ago.

I'm really a beginner in flash, but I had to do a flash animation for a school project (I'm French and the subject is a bit difficult to translate, so I just would say it has something to do with the garden.)

The aim of this animation is to show that misanthropy, helped by modern technologies (internet, video games... symbolised by guns and all funny things the misanthrope has in his garden) isolates some people in the society, and also to show how it could be dangerous for the misanthrope himself and for society. Yes, everything can explode ! ;)

It's a bit late in France right now, so I'm a bit tired, sorry if I have done some mistakes.

Great idea

But an idea isn't good enough. also there was violence in it. not suitable for all.


Breenoux responds:

Violence ? Maybe, not more than in cartoons childrens watch on TV all day long !

oh com on

When you put video on newgrounds, it's for animations whit (more long than 5 seconds) AND MORE INTERESTING
.
at the beginning, i was like "great intro but repetitive... i hope it's gonna be better at the middle of the movie"

then i realised this WAS all ur animation.
sorry but... make better

HOLY SH*T

I just loved this little flash By the Way, In your next version i recommend you put an indicator as some of the other reviews said. I wouldn't have enough guts to put up any of my flash animations because THEY JUST SUCK!!! You have talent my friend keep up the good work!

haha smart

the animation was pretty linear and plain, nothing that made me say "wow." But considering your amateurism, it was ok and actually had some fluidity to it. Personally i don't like schoolwork submissions (they tend to be pointless), but this one was intelligent and i really liked the idea behind it. sound was good but again, nothing spectacular. Keep up the good work

Mmm! That's good satire!

That was extremely good. Having watched a new submission, sometimes I have to give a lot of consideration to the score I give it out of 5, but not this time. That's a "WIN" for you :)
Script and concept was fantastic, it was a great satire of our generally subdivided society (which undoubtedly includes the Internet, as you mention). There wasn't any dialogue as such, but it didn't need much, and for once I wasn't craving voiceovers from the second I saw the speech on screen (where would they go, anyway?).
Animation probably won't win any awards. Even given the fact that you used stickmen it wasn't stunning, but that wasn't ever really the point of this Flash. It was a medium, and you did just enough to get your brilliant script out there and viewed.
I wasn't overly-sold on the audio. The music you chose was good, but maybe it needed more. Sometimes the change from silence to music was little rough and jumpy, maybe some constant background audio would have helped. But that's nitpicking.
Using ActionScript to advance the story... Interesting choice. By using that to break the fourth wall, you made the experience a little voyueristic (and therefore made another point about the Net). But I think that it should have been made a little clearer to the viewer what was expected of them.

All in all, an absolutely great submission, a real gem.

(Oh, and was I the only one who thought House No.2 had some parallels with Rina-Chan's little "love-note" to Youtube at the end of More Brawl Taunts? :P)
