---THE MOVIE DOES LOAD IT JUST DOESNT SHOW THE LOADING BAR PLEASE WAIT A MINUTE.---

If the movie lags try to lower the quality.

Well I finally decided to submit it here on Newgrounds, my graduating project for my animation class which I made one year ago. I made the music myself you can download it in the audio portal, all instruments where played each one at a time.
It was my first time mixing it all together and is not quite at the level which I wanted it to be.
I also did a lot of rotoscoping in this movie filming myself and drawing over it as an expirimental test. The song was inspired by various things such as the music of Cab Calloway and Tom Waits.
Please PM me if you find something wrong with the flash

LYRICS:

Small conversations, obscene
relations just an unwashed fake romance.
Horny sound from a growlin' hound and a perverted old street cat.

Dirty floors, suite coats black ties
Come to take their chance,
He got a big bag of money, just for his dirty honey,
For his sore street romance.

Daddy's little girl, in a pretty red dress,
And a pink pistol in her hand .
Her tears are black and her hair is a mess,
she could not understand.

She blows the sax like no other,
She learned to play, from her mother.
Easy lover, under the cover
and a bedtime story from a prostitute,

Who was never taught the explanation, never had the education
to feel another vibration of love.

He got a big bag of money, just for is dirty honey,
For his sore street romance.

interesting

though alot of cliche "intense wide angle" shots you created seemed unnecessary, and the trumpet was completely flat through the entire song. you might say it created a bit of noir sadness, like the trumpeteer wasn't even happy enough to tune up, but no. thats a basic recording issue thats simply glaring all throughout.

this of course doesn't make it bad by any means, but it does leave it far from perfect. i liked the visual style, the silhouettes, the motion, and the effort highlighting certain objects.

not bad work.

Thanks for reviewing, yeah the trumpet is very flat. I was only playing the trumpet for 2 or 3 months when I was recording this, but looking back and seeing lots of things that I could improve now easily only confirms that improvement has been made :)

Thanks for the review.

Now thats classy

This is really something. Its reminiscent of such a classic style of music, but thats what makes it unique. The animation was nice too, had a dark feel to it, which goes well with the music.
