The original idea for this collaboration started this year. I wanted to get together a group of the best Madness tribute artists on Newgrounds and make a collaboration that would stand out from and serve as a model for other Madness collaborations (hence PARADIGMadness). So I decided that the collab would have a basic plot - a cohesive storyline that all the other collaborators would have to stick to. This came in the form of a package. The goal for each collaborator was to animate their own character transporting a small package across Nevada,. At the same time, they would try to make it look as though their part fit in chronologically with the parts before and after it.
I tried contacting nearly 20 artists, some of whom included popular Newgrounds artists (e.g. MasterAardvark, Sexual-Lobster, Krinkels), but only received 14 positive responses. Over the months, as the collaboration progressed, this number dwindled to 4 artists. Though this did not bode well with me, the collab, contrary to my expectations, did not go under. In fact, the remaining collaborators went above and beyond the call of duty in order to make this collaboration as violence-packed as it is.
And here, today, despite the obstacles that come along with producing any big Flash movie, we, the Paradigmadness Collaboration Team present to you the fruits of our labor.
