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...

I havent seen anything this good in a loong time

This was amazing, it used about every single effect in flash that I could think of. The scripting and directing, including use of music, was excellent. I don't think I could ever make anything this good.

It felt like I was watching a movie, to make this effect is a big accomplishment, I hope to see future submissions like this.


Very good

This is very original. I love the preloader. I've read up on the Valentines Massacare.

Smooth, great animations

Pretty much everything was truly perfect. The lookout wasn't as 'noir' as the rest, but I liked the total very much. You (Hans) did a great job finding so many good animators. You guys really did some great animations, everything was so smooth.
Also, very nice idea to give one collab one story. Mostly collabs are just an excuse for bad animators to get their short, bad movies in the portal. In this one, all movies were good
