Valentine '29

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...

My God that was the best animated flash i heve literaly ever seen!!


That's absolutely awesome!

I would like to congratulate you guys on this one. I just KNOW this will be on the frontpage, and surely get rewards.

I love the fact this has a storyline, not a lot of the movies on NG have it, and to do it in a collab would have been ever harder.

I'm looking forward to any planned collabs by any of you guys.

Only point of critique; make sure your sound is in order, sometimes the voices were hard to hear.


First review suckas!!

Okay, some seriously impressive talent in the collab. I enjoyed most aspects of it although it was probabley slightly rushed to meet the deadline, so I can see why some parts weren’t “mind blowing.” But overall it was nearly mind blowing XD, good job guys!
