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

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.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Animation > Lip Work

You make the entire animation of the man very vibrant and smooth, but I felt that when his lips moved it could've been done slightly better.

On another note, I'm a huge Jazz fan and I loved this work. I hope you continue!

Hats off, good sir.

The story was dark and gritty; the song and video matched perfectly. I'm a sucker for jazz and the Gorillaz. This seemed to take both of those and meld them into a symphony of win in my mind.

You have talent in the creative zones, sir. Keep it up. The world is better with your type of contributions.

Extra points for having the only song I've heard on Newgrounds that I downloaded. It's the first song on my new MP3 player.

Basset-Hound responds:

I'm glad you downloaded the song for your Mp3 player it really encourages me to record more music. I concider this song a demo version because I will record it better when I have more experience mixing and better equipment. Thanks for the review :)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Dark, heavy and absolutely amazing.

The visual style was a little rough, but that can be ignored and mistaken for artistic expression emphasising the grit in this bittersweet song.

The instrumental parts in this song are extremely well played, the blues guitar solo in the middle is both subtle and expressive and the trumpet was forceful yet well delivered. I feel that your singing in this masterpiece was little too heavy on the grit, and a ever so slightly lighter and clearer voice would have helped improve it.

I hope my feedback was useful, and good luck on your future works.
