First off, my Brother and I are 38 and 34. As a matter of fact, the picture of me in our logo is me at 10 when I first started computer animation in DOS. I have been animating for two decades and he has been a professional singer/songwriter for nearly as long, so I don't want to hear any B.S. questioning the "legitamacy" of our work. We spent over a year working on this in our spare time when not freelancing for well known brands.
I only regret that the 10Mb size limit on Newgrounds forced us to split the video into three parts and compress the hell out of it. So, yes, it is a bit grainy, but I would hope you can look past that and judge the work based on its artistic merits and not on the limits of the medium. You can see the HD version on youtube if you want to see this in its glory.
The primary animation and elements were created in flash, the shading and 3D compositing were done in AfterEffects. The music was created and performed by my brother with Acid 6.0. No, this music is not his style, it was created and calculated to have mass appeal.
