Kel-chan also just released the first episode of Sanctum! She's been really ambitious with her recent 3D work.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

October made me feel super special inside! Great month all around. Let's keep it going for the rest of the year.

Also, I'm hosting a collab that everyone on Newgrounds can take part in:

So Man in the Woods was posted elsewhere a few times, and earlier than Newgrounds by a lot (6 months,) is it still an okay bid for Movie of the Year?

In my opinion, no.


Good.

Congrats to the winners! And congrats creativeusage!!

At least two that I voted at the top of the list are actually at the top of the list for a change, but it'd be strange if that was any other way. Definitely been a great month.

Should place of previous postation affect judgment process? Better late than never no? It's still an awesome movie. :/

I think as long as it came out in 2014, it deserves a bid.

I can't believe I would have a monthly trophy if monthly trophies existed

Hey Tom, there's no Spirit Science series?! I figured if I looked up Channels>Series, it would be there, or on a movie page, on the lower left in a helpful pod. Can't you get an intern to do some categorizing on behalf of NG? You'd think with more Baby Boomers retiring, they'd wanna focus on stuff like, collating :|


Vault 101 I have many old and deleted Flash submissions, PM me the filename, maybe I got it.

Some great movies were uploaded in 2014,i loved the 2 FNaF vids aswell. Not to forget the Animator VS Animation video which was just brilliant.

Can't wait for the Best of November already!

No I mean. It's not a Newgrounds movie, it was a movie posted to Newgrounds.

Unlike Lucky Day Froever, which was posted on Newgrounds first.


Good.

In my opinion, no.

The tough thing is that Jacob didn't know NG was cool with non-Flash-based animation when he first released it on Vimeo. It's difficult to try and judge movies based on their "made for NG intent" because despite NG having inspired lots of people to get into animation, nowadays they have YouTube in mind when they first release stuff, or they release on Vimeo because it's ad-free. We're in this weird space where we aren't owned by Barry Diller so we HAVE to run ads. I'm just ranting now.
