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...

This is the best mafia collab i've ever seen!This is great work! 10/10!!!!!!

Das ist Fantastish! :D Now i see that Newgrounds is serious business.



But just saying that is an understatement, this is a masterpiece.

absolutely fantastic

this is probably the best collab i've ever seen, and ive seen a shitload. i love the fact that it wasnt just a series of short animations bunched up, but it was a coherant story that you all made to fit together. absolutely brilliant. and the animations indiviually were all FANTASTIC, i mean i don't think i've seen cinematography like that for any other animation. all the styles worked very well also, and the story was very well portrayed. fantastic job to all of you, i tip my hat to the creators. 5/5 just cause i cant give it a 10/5 ;D great job
