After a message from Mr. Fulp himself, the collab is now front paged! I've never been front paged for anything I submitted. I have for a few collabs and such, but this was submitted under my name! So thank you so much to Tom, and to all the supports. Means a lot, and glad to see some extra exposure for the collab and its participants :)

[June 4th]
I'm pissed off at my own idiocy! I just realized that after all the work I put into this, I never gave it a preloader!!!! How many people watched it, all they saw was a white screen while it was loading, voted 0 and moved on!? Although it is frustrating beyond belief, I can't live in the past. Atleast it's fixed now. Ugh...

-------------------------

"Did You Hear That?" is a collaboration of sound and animation from 10 talented artists here on Newgrounds.

All participants in this collab were hand selected by me, Goat-Man. All activities in this collab were conducted through privatemessages. Meaning members had no interaction with each other, and never knew who they were working with.

Each member was told to hand in one random sound effect.The sound was allowed to be anything that they wanted. I took all handed in sound effects, and organized them into a random order. Each member was given this compiled sound file, and weren't allowed to change it in any way.

Since there were no interactions between members, each animation came out 100% different because they were unable to take ideas from one another.

The name "Did You Hear That?" came from the idea that each sound effect was interpreted differently. So each member heard and invisioned a different scene than the others.

This is actually the first time that members in the collab will be able to see everyone that they worked with throughout the project. But, that was really just me being a tease more than anything :P

Thank you so much to the members for your hard work and efforts.
This was a blast to work on, and I loved organizing it!
I hope you all love how it turned out as much as I do.

Good idea

Very interesting collab! It's really nice to see what each artist came up with.
However, the repetition of the same sounds effects do get a bit annoying after some time.

My suggestion is that you let the artists mix up the song order next time. It might be even more interesting.

For the sequel I didn't allow it. I'm not sure if I ever will. This is already over some peoples heads. I fear that nobody will understand what the collab is about if I allow that.

really nice

i love the idea i love how people interpreted the sounds differently i think people need to actuly read about what this is suppose to be before reviewing.i found this amazing because as a child i used to listen to music ant try to think of what it meant and made a story in my head.thanks this was a really good watch


Noodle responds:

I agree, but really it's their lose if they don't take the time to appreciate it properly.
Glad I could connect you with that childhood memory a bit :)

Great!

This was a brilliant idea, to be honest. The different views people have on the sounds given to them really came forward in this Flash. Personally, I liked the ones created by MyKindOfFlash and TommyVF best, but like I said, that's just my opinion.
Hope to see a next one soon!


Noodle responds:

Thanks man, the next one will hopefully be out in a few weeks.
Look for it in July :)
That's the plan anyways

its a great idea to see what pepolpe thinks when it hears a saound like the ones that repeated the laser sword or the eagle (flying) and the clasical rubber duck pretty interesting (have you thinked to make a game whit that?)


Noodle responds:

Not really sure how I would make it a game. But I am currently hosting the sequel :)

wow :o

dude that was tottaly awsome but what i did not get was why was i hearing the same sound over and over that got kinda annoying but it still was really cool i would give it a 10 but the annoyiny sounds kinda.... 9 is good


Noodle responds:

You were hearing the same sounds, because everyone was free to animate whatever they felt like to match the sound file they were given. Everyone was given the same sound clip in the same order to work with
