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...

nice work

i decided i'd give this one all tens for my review because of two reasons. 1. to compensate for those people who gave 0's even though they haven't seen it yet and 2. because its really really good and i like the artistic-ness of it. nice idea too. (ok, so maybe i had 4 reasons)

i think the change in graphics, while slight, was really effective in a positibe way. the graphics and movement were really smooth and well done for each animations. really some talented work.

Great movie.

This is something for NG to be truly proud of. The graphics in all the scenes was superb. I liked how in the second scene we got a little history channel. But the last source I came across said that the man the lookouts mistook for Bugs walked down the sidewalk. But that didn't really detract from the overall product. Great job. If only every flash on NG were this good.


freaking sweet Luis's is the best part


My hats off to you chaps
Quite a peice you've made here
great animation, good voice acting, and good styles
hats off to ya'll
