A very short film I made this morning after seeing a similar cartoon a co-worker drew at work the night before last showing a paper bag beating the snot out of a plastic bag.

Be green, save the environment!

Else there will be no life left to enjoy Newgrounds!



Rated 1 / 5 stars


is it better to choose paper? by every1 choosing paper bags wouldnt we raise the demand for paper? and is not paper made from trees? and is not trees what keeps the oxygen levels and pollution in there proper place? wouldnt it be bad to choose paper over plastic?

cuz last time i checked plastic trees dont help the earth, paper (wood) trees do

Myzzy responds:

Ahh, well to be honest the actually Green friendly option is to get reusable bags (be they heavy duty paper, plastic or a good ol' canvas backpack) because reusing what you already have is 10 times better than getting new stuff. As for the paper vs. plastic, if you use paper yes you cut down trees but paper decomposes better than plastic which uses chemical processes to be created and consequentially does not decompose as well.

So I guess if I make a follow up that has a decent plot line I shall need a backpack Man who can kick everyone's butt because thats the real green choice (and the one I personally use).

Here goes.

Looks like you really thought out the negative points of it. I'll break it down for you. The animation was ok, better than some I've seen at least, but not great. The graphics also were a little lacking, though that does not have to inhibit your work. I'm sure you can find a way to work around that with good content. Mainly, it was horribly short, and there wasn't anything to it. Come up with a plot and maybe Paperbag Man can live! I'd suggest, if you decide drawing in Flash is not for you, use pictures of actual paper bags! Once you work around the graphics end I think you can really unlock some potential. Looking forward to seeing what the future brings from you.

It was a Good Idea...

... Just Not A Good Movie

Myzzy responds:

Why not a good movie?
1. Too short
2. Animation Bad
3. Music Inappropriate
4. Plot Line Lacking
5. Missing a deep moral message
Please be more specific so I can make improvements to future endeavors.

Re: you messed it up

Instead of saying, "Plastic Bag Thug," you said, "Paper Bag Thug."

Even if it wasn't too short

You managed to mess up the ONE line of dialogue.

Well done.

Myzzy responds:

I am not sure what you mean by messed it up, if you mean punctuation after stop I fixed that, but otherwise it seems alright to me.
