This is my 2nd submission to NG - the first was well-received (thanks) and I've always wanted to do a video for one of my songs, so I thought I'd have a stab at animation. The song I chose is not my best, but it was the first one that I had visual inspiration for - I just like the idea of a bunch of drumming monkeys.

The song itself is about a friend who worries too much to fully live, and although the words aren't particularly comical, hopefully the video is.
The progress bar is draggable. There's also a mouse trail to play with during the preload.

Animation is a bugger. The sync is slightly out in places, but not terribly bad. Be warned, the movie is also quite CPU-intensive.

A lot of time & effort has gone into this, so *please* watch the whole thing before reviewing or voting. Thanks.

Monkeys! They're EVERYWHERE!

I tried to get the song to grow on me but I couldn't. Sorry. Since the music is sort of what the whole movie rides on, it seemed that I wouldn't be able to like this flash, but the quality of the animation itself is excellent. Good use of 3-D--not too pretentious, an excellent in/outro effect. You even made a play progress bar, volume control, and basic play/pause/stop controls... great job! I liked the monkeys... did you draw those by hand? (Frowns approvingly with wide eyes) I never thought it was possible to make a computerized hand drawn monkey worth looking at! That is all...


Denvish responds:

I drew them with the mouse in Flash. I could really do with a graphics tablet but I wouldn't use it enough at the moment to make it worthwhile. Sorry you didn't like the song, thanks for at least giving it a chance...
Cheers

Crap song but well animated

Crap song but well animated. Credit were credits due. Well done but next time choose a better song. Maybe some Foo Fighters or something.


Denvish responds:

No. I have no interest in doing Flash for commercial songs, why should I bother, when they already have enough publicity? Unless I'm going to get paid decent money for it.
BTW it's not the song that's crap, it's your tastes...

The insults born of Shakespear where entertaining, they reminded me of Monty Python. It brought a smile to my face. I'll use many of those.


Denvish responds:

Erm.... you're reviewing the wrong movie mate...

Incredible!

Hahaha! It had everything. At first i didnt like the song but it grew on me rather quickly. I reviewed another one of your movies today...and i have to admit it was a half-assed reviewing. I liked youre soundboard more than i led on :)


Denvish responds:

No worries, you weren't the only one to mark it down on graphics, in fact its scores for graphice are a lot lower than I would like, considering it has animation and looks pretty. The thing that does piss me off is when people give it less than 6 for interactivity, I think maybe they're the ones that didn't find the soundboard section.

Pretty song...

Well done flash :) I hope you do more music videos. You have real tallent. Good job.


Denvish responds:

I probably will eventually, but it's a laborious task animating, and it doesn't suit me too well, so I'll be mostly concentrating on Actionscript-based games & movies.
