This collab is relatively different from most collabs, it basically is ONE story line divided into 5 sections, and each section created by a different artist through their own artistic opinion on how it might have been.

i was very lucky to find the animators i found for the collab, i like em all because their styles are so different, and i think that in a collaboration project its always nice to bring different styles together and see how one thing can be viewed through different perspectives. But, now speaking of the animators i have to honestly admit that i am extremely thrilled to have someone aboard the project like Luis, i remember back when i was just starting Flash, my brother and i used his "Grime vs. Squeezy" bit as a good example of a flash animation for a long time. so it's funny to end up in the same boat now. That was just a little factoid i for some eason felt that i needed to point out.

...This collab was first started off by a good friend of mine, i was only an animator making a part in his collab. but a few things got in his way and he didn't have time to get it all done, so he handed the project to me. and due to technical complications with members of the collab and information about this and that, i decided to completely redesign it and start from scratch.

since i already have SO many projects I'm working on i at first thought about accepting to lead this collab, but i think this idea was really interesting and would allow me and other animators to experiment with their more serious side. plus, i always wanted to make a Noire movie, or something along those lines for Newgrounds, and i thought this was the perfect opportunity.

anyways, this is the "Valentine '29" collaboration project, my first collab, maybe my last... but who knows. i hope you all ENJOY...

Obviously Took a Lot of Work

Incredible. I really, really liked this. Almost all of the styles were original; it's really refreshing to see something other than anime for once. Regardless, all were well put-together. Great job.

Fucking awesome

I gotta admit it to ya dude, this is pretty fucking amazing.
I learned not so long ago about this whole massacre thing at school (never actually paid attention) but I knew what was going on 'n stuff.
Best part; Luis (sorry Hans :p
Overall graphics: pretty nifty, the second scene, didn't really fit in, it was more 'cartoonish' then noir..but still good on itself! It runs very smoothly, even with the occasional blur (wich makes my computer go al freaky normally) so you guys made watching this very plesant !
Overall Sound: Well the first part was very well done with background music etc...voice actor is great! :p and it al creates a good mood for the rest of the animation.
Overall style: well i heard this somewhere thta the actuall idea of a collab is to combine the very things in wich each animator is good at into one animation to create one super animation, and well this is the perfect example of that. no more to say then "fucking awesome dude"

Sir, i would like to kiss your toes now, thank you for this nice piece of entertainment.

All I can say is wwwwoooowwww this is some freakin awesome animation, all of it was so smooth and the stop motion holy cow wish I could do that. Man you guys should do some more like this one. Plus being a history buff I really enjoyed it, but I do have one question did one guy really live through the shooting I though they were all preaty much swiss cheese and didn't the police think that it was a shootout that lasted for hours because of all the bullet holes in the place. I could be wrong but was just thinkin outloud there.
