Movie Opening
Chapter 1: The Stealing of the Book
Shades of Gray:
A series of Epic immaturity as five guys get together to blackmail their former best friend for all the horrible, embarrassing and outright disgusting things he's ever done to them.
Chapter 2: The Phone Call (Online!)
Notes from the author:
Incase anyone is wondering. This is a complete Movie, but split into chapters. The reason why we are showcasing two vids per day is because of the 5mb upload limits of Newgrounds. Only two video's can be uploaded a day.
We hope that doesn't deter you from watching the series.

Thanks for watching!

Each chapter after Chapter 7 should run for about 4min and 50 seconds. We're trying to extend the time for each Chapter without compromising quality.


A good start

I've been hearing a lot about this series, so I finally decided to check it out.

Life action movies are certainly something of a rarity on Newgrounds, but it looks as though this will be quite nice. It is set up excellently for an indie film, and I am very impressed with the compression rate.

The song seemed really out of place though...

Anyways, not too much happening in the begining, but it's done excellently enough to make me want to keep watching. Good job.

I've been watching your progression through the series and I have to say your reviews were awesome. Jesse got you at some points where you thought one thing, but another thing happend. Goes to show you that somethings aren't predictable as you'd like think.

I'll get Jess to respond to your questions posed in some of your reviews. It's good to see how people see how we split up the chapters. It's a learning tool on our part too. =)

Well, i have seen "Shades of gray" chapters all around in the portal but never took myself the energy to watch them, but after 19 chapters and all seems to get great scores i knew i had to! This opening is really really cool! It looks just like a TV show intro! The song fits perfectly and makes you wanna continue watch, your performances and movements also look very cool, like you really know what you are doing. Which i definitly think you are, this looks from the start to be something major! GREAT job! Now for the other chapters, one question, what is the name of the song? I liked it! And i think you should type down all music used since you didn't do that in Authors Comments, that is a little minus from my side. Vote: 5

The song used for this scene is called "Safety Dance" by Men without Hats.

Sorry about that I goofed a tad on the Load script. I will fix the problem sometime this week.

Nice start. A bit crusty but nice nonetheless.

After seeing the majority of the series, the camera feels a bit crustier at the beginning. Nevertheless, this is a well done start to an awesome series. It would be great to have it as a movie. Top stuff.
