The shock of this submission passing judgment gave rise to the Clock Crew and movies like this.

In recent years B has been screened as part of an NG retrospective at the Animation Breakdown Festival in LA, the Ottawa International Animation Festival and the super-cool GLAS Animation Festival in Berkeley. Crazy, right?

This year we have two Clock-themed site skins in rotation, by @ZombieLincoln and @RobertClock.

Be sure to check out the Clock Day 2017 Collection!

It was odd that B made it through, but it was due to a bunch of people working together to undermine Tom's submission filtering system at the time. Tom took it well, and more people hopped on the train.

Small animator communities formed once the clock crew got bigger. I joined one of them when I was just starting out (The Milano Crew) and it really helped me learn and grow as a creator. Usually the work these crews spit out weren't anything to write home about, but collaboration flourished without borders which was pretty neat. I worked alongside people from Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Singapore, etc -

Kind of an inside looking out/outside looking in kinda deal. Had to be there and participate to fully appreciate it.

I might be generalizing but a majority of the clock crew's content consisted of shit posting and spam. The first thing that came to mind was what a bunch of retards and autists ( no offense).

I couldn't imagine what it's like to cry about people making flash videos you don't like.

who said anything about crying ? I was just merely asking a question, no need to get so defensive.

Wait, how do you screen B? It doesn't have an end, do you just leave it running for a few hours?


Good.

Yeah it just runs for a little bit. It can be awkward when the audience is just dead silent the whole time, but also kinda funny in its own way. People enjoyed it the most in LA.
