WOW 0o0
thanks soo much for all the great reviews everyone :D
i had no idea people would like this so much :P
all my friends thought it was great, yeah, but their my friends
to hear such awesome reviews from total strangers...its just amazing ^_^

just to clarify, im no n00b at animating, as ive been animating for several years, doin lil flipbooks n what not xP

i cant garuntee any future reanacments, but ill certainly look into it

there will be more movies in the future though, so keep an ear to the wall :]


hey all! :D

ok, so this is my first ever COMPLETED flash project. I have several projects in the works, but this is my first ever complete one.
this is also my very first submission, so be gentle :|

I made this for a history project last year. The topic was to choose an historical event that had occured within the last 60 years. So i thought it would be funny to do the Cuban Missile Crisis, and have America, Russia, and Cuba playing poker, but still having it be technically historically accurate.
There's a boring explanation of what and when the Cuban Missile Crisis happened if you're for whatever reason interested. it was mandatory for the project =/
i had initially intended voice acting, as i matched up the lipsyincing as best i could with what the actors would have said, but i ran out of time, so i took the lazy way out n slapped in a few captions and let the song take over the audio.
the ending was rushed a bit as well, as i literally finished the movie IN CLASS before i had to present it.
i got an A+ :]

Good history lesson

I am a person who always prides myself in knowing a lot about history. I could however not really shake off the feeling that the animation was not the best. It is still an enjoyable cartoon to watch, simply because of how well the satire goes. You have made a good analogy by comparing the crisis to a card game. It goes to show how each of the countries had their own roles. It was also just funny to see the USA get angry and beat up Russia and Cuba (although apparently Russia got it much worse here).

albiokay responds:

lol well Russia was technically the cause for the crisis, and the initial enemy of the US at the time
why wouldn't they get it worse :P
and thank you for understanding my humor in having the Cold War represented as a game of poker, nobody seems to have gotten that yet :]
and i wasn't striving for the best, or anywhere near it. this was aimed at an "easy-to-please" crowd, that is, a teacher simply expecting an accurate project, and a room of classmates who all made powerpoints and posterboards, lol
plus, i had a deadline to be wary of. i'd like to have done more, especially with dialogue, but i simply hadn't the time or the recourses at the time
but thank you for the review :)

America wins!

Just more proof that those other countries don't stand a chance against the good ol' U.S.A.!!!

albiokay responds:

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I enjoyed it :D

I thrash other movies for lack of story. You picked something topical and made it funny. The flash was good, overall a success. 9/10 you earned it :)

albiokay responds:

thank you very much :D
