Hello Newgrounds, long time no see...
From the creator of "Aura" comes a brand new [quite old by now, actually..] flash production - SMILE! .
What was to be quick side project turned into a beast that took me over 3 months... Three months of forsaking and returning, three months of occasional work suicides and sleepless nights...

as always, NOTE: May not be liked by everyone, but was never meant to be liked by everyone. If you're here only to watch funny mario parodies, then you can skip this movie now.

Enough nagging. Watch the movie.

(There are quite many people that get confused by the ending. Just to let you know - yes, it's supposed to be the way it is. )


what.... the....

i have never seen anything like this before... where did you come up with the idea for this? this was extremely weird and graphical, even though the people were just faces on a rectangle... again, extremely weird... i, dont really know what to say about this... it wasnt very funny, at all... but the graphics were very, very good and the music couldnt have gone better with it...
and wtf was with the end? a disco ball and an orgy?? WTF?? anyways, i guess i liked this...
(THE THUMB: up!!!)


very good...but man was that disturbing. I'm not quite sure what messagw you're trying to get across, but I have some sort of idea. Anyway, great job.

Good except the ending

I loved it because it should a real meaning. I don't know if you were trying to convey a meaning and I really don't know how to describe it, but the ending just ruined it.


I woke up this morning and for some reason had this odd feeling you were making something new and i had this clue that it was coming. Now to the movie. This movie was amazing, the black and white animations were very well done, and it grabbed handle of the audience very well. Also the very monotone dark style was neat, and some nice zoom affects. Music went very well , and the plot to show someone to smile, and force them through all the pain, was nice to watch. Also this was to represent, how bad this world really, is and violence and pain is really all that happens. Animations were very smooth and bloody, and the torture was great. Very artistic, and there is no flash of this kind anywhere. Detail was impressive, and alot of unique talent for sure. Also the end scene was awsome, and the camera angle work was nuce, the dancing was to show an fake emotion, do to there brains being over whelmed. ALot of talent, and these are the real flashes. These are the flashes that take thought, mind power and the will to create.

Overall and incredible film, with some amazing unique style of graphics, and some happy smiles. Violence was indeed great, and a very powerful film. Genius my friend

You are very talented , hope to see more.
