My third submission to newgrounds (my second real one). i had to make it really bad quality so it would all it in 5MB :'( This is 5 combat tests, each with different weapons. i used mostly clay but also a toy called Stikfas. When my mom saw the main page (not even any of the movie) she told me i am going sick in the head so expect a "non-violent" flash from me some time in the future (yeah right) Some of the soundFX don't work, i will fix these soon. i just wanted to get this up so i could continue working on my other submission to newgrounds. Yes i am planning some proper klaymations with story lines and hopefully they will be at least half as funny as Knox's (i've seen every Knox flash on NG, i think) Music used in this flash is Hopeless Ninja by Death_in_a_hat. or is it Kiefer?

you seriously need to improve ... how did this get past the judgement zone

anywho im not the type thats says something bad and just leaves heres a few tips...

1) seriously you need to make them thinner or bigger i mean how are the claymen supposed to move?

2)instead of video-ing it take it shot by shot then you can have him hitting your hand trying to get away from your hand or trying to grab your hand so he can be free anywho you get the point

3)although most poeple start off with webcams try to get a better camera

4)better music (i turned it off straight away)

5)i know tis was a test but you could make a long series (althogh i think it gets a little rediculose after 40 episodes)

Tatenda responds:

lol. Thanks for the advise but this was like the first thing I did and I have learned a lot from experience.

1)Thanks, I think for my next project, I'm going to make simple armatures for my models (wire skeletons that make them stronger and easier to move with outh braking)

2)I actually used a stop-motion animation pragram to make this and took it frame by frame. I dind't film it but it probably looks like it because of a rubbish choice of framerate but i've learned more about that too now.

OOHHH I get what you mean now! For the part with my hand in, I filmed it, but for the rest, I used stopmotion animation.

3)lol, I actually don't own a webcam, I used a camcorder but the quality looks really bad because I had to turn it down so it would fit into 5MB but it would have looked bad anyway because some of it was REALLY out of focus because I didn't know what I was doing with the lighting and stuff.

4)i dind't know (and still don't know) about how ok or bad it is to have copyrighted music in your movies without permission. Is it ok to use it if your movie is only going to be on Newgrounds because it's not for commercial use or is it still against the law?

Anyway, I just found some random piece of music that was something to do with ninjas so I stuck it in I guess.

5)When I have time, I would like to make a series. My next project will hopefully be ready by the end of this week because I want to use it in an interview to get into a school but It definately won't be a series but in two weeks I'll have 3 whole months to do whatever I want so I'm sure I'll be contributing to Newgrounds quite often. I've been busy lately with exams and stuff but...

No one even cares about anything I just said so they? I just wasted all this timne when I should have been revising. No one is even gonna read this.

Thanks for the advise anyway. When my next project arrives, I hope you will review it and tell me if I've improved or not.
