Those of you who see this and are like, da hell thats not how pico went. Well, imagine this story as the true happenings, beneath the cover up of Casandra being an alien thing, what really happened. Or not, u can just not believe it. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

Low Quality is suggested...

This would be my Pico Day submission entitled, A Pico Thing. It's a little bit more than 5 minutes long and 5,000 frames(a lot of it is frame by frame). I gotta thank newgrounds for helping me get to where I am today. If this site didn’t exist, I would be somewhere very far away doing something very different.( maybe a pirate in the Caribbean).

It all started around March 15th, the week before my spring break. I read one of Tom's front page posts and it mentioned Pico Day, and I just kind of read it over, not thinking I would actually make a cartoon. That night I thought about it. I was still unsure whether to make one or not. So I went and played the Pico game the next day, and it struck me, Pico vs The Scientist Nerd, so I began to storyboard that idea. I figured it would be done, so I put a little more spin on the idea...

So I finished the storyboard, and during my spring break started to animate it. I put in lots of references to other stuff. One of the more obvious ones is Alien Hominid.

So as I worked on the cartoon relentlessly, college would occasionally take up all my time( or hanging out with people, I do that too) and I went for some time without touching the cartoon. So it only about a month of work, but it still took a shitload of work, and I am definitely proud of the final product.

Yeah, anybody gonna read this far down? Sorry about the music, I didn’t really have much time to make a full out soundtrack to the movie on my own, and just didn’t look through the audio portal. Sorry the size and lack of an entertaining loading page.



it was very cool the movie was awesome evry bit of it
but casandra mutaded cause she is a penilinin or something like that if u dont get it play u.f.a here on newgrounds casandra was the leader of them

well, then this is just an alternate version of pico ;)


Well firstly, i loved the way you took down the bad guy at the end there it was both cool and funny. What stood out the most to me in this flash was the way you went crazy with the camera angles, it actually made me feel like i was part of the action, it was just terrific. For a flash that doesn't have any voice acting i thought this did very well when it came to telling the story without any words. The music selection in the background suited this well. Overall i thought the action scenes really stood out in this.

i like it

cool, but you still gave me a 6 which means 4 of your points weren't give to me. WHY? IF YOU CALL IT GREAT AND YOU LIKE IT WHY NOT GIVE A 10?!?!!?


I dug it.

The animation was surprisingly very fluid, it had a nice flow to it. It's obvious a lot of work was put into this. The most glaring downfall (as has been pointed out before) was that Garageband sountrack. It was all over the place. A lot of cool stuff can be done with those loops, but they stuck out too much here. But it is a forgivable flaw in what is ultimately one of the better Pico day submissons thus far.

i am an animator and movie maker by trade. I spent the majority of my time on the animation itself and really wouldnt have had the time or focus to make a more decent soundtrack. I felt it was good enough to get the job done thou.

Good stuff

Good intro, I was wondering if it was the submission haha.
When I saw the real animation I thought 'wow'. It wasn't too short like most of the other pico day submissions I have seen so far.
I like the blam tank idea, most amusing. But the music seemed a little - strange? It was good but parts of it just seemed ot to fit with the animation.

yeah...the music is my least favorite part about this movie....oh welllllllll/
