AUGUST 6, 2005:
I worked quite hard on this movie, and hopefully it shows still. It doesn't have much animation or clarity to the plot, and if you don't understand what it's about then that sucks. For those who aren't down with the subtle movements, selective timing, and interpretable (is that a word?) plots, then the next movie I make may please you a little more. It's going to be all frame-by-frame, and will contain a more straightforward storyline.
Okay, here's my new movie, "The City". Turns out someone already submitted a movie called The City, but oh well. Anyways, I haven't submitted a thing for like 2 years now, so it's surely been a while. I put a lot of work into this movie (mostly because I didn't half-ass the art), and I'm very proud of it. A few scenes I feel could've improved a bit, but basically it turned out how I wanted it to. It's a movie about emotions, and I haven't ever really done that before, so it was something new to me.
I made all of the images with my trusty old mouse, so that could explain some sketchy art here and there, but I don't think it's noticably too poor. The music was performed and written by my brother Kyle. Since the movie's length and the length of the song are pretty close in time, it was designed to fit perfectly.. But since some of you may have slower computers, and because some of the graphics in my movie are pretty large and result in lagging, the song may end earlier than planned. The song was made before the movie was. I didn't really have a choice unless I was to crop the movie. I think the song fits the atmosphere perfectly, so I planned on using it relentlessly.
Please leave constructive criticism, and/or positive comments. Both are greatly appreciated.
