===The 3 Second Collab===

Here Is The Long & Awaited For 3 Second Collab!

Collab's History:
The Collab Was Originally Created On March 13th, 2008 By Yoshi77777. After a Few Months He Ran Into Issues And That Forced Him To Be Completely Inactive. One Day, DarkSoldier Was Browsing Through The Collab Thread As He Was a Member of The Collab And Noticed That Yoshi77777 was completely Inactive But No One At The 3 Second Collab Thread Knew Why? DarkSoldier Had Then Contacted Yoshi77777 About The Collab To See What Was Going On And Yoshi77777 Had Said That He Had Ran Into Issues not coerning the collab. DarkSoldier Then Thought About Taking Over Leadership of The Collab With Yoshi77777's Permission. Yoshi77777 Then Granted DarkSoldier Leadership Over The Collab. DarkSoldier Ran Into Many Problems With The Collab And Was Almost Sure That The Collab Would Never Be Released But Thanks To The Great Members Of The Collab DarkSoldier Was Able To Accomplish What Seemed To Be Impossoble!

Some Of The 3 Second Collab Members Wanted To Share A Few Words:

My part came about when i was trying to do a serious artistic flash - then realized i didn't have enough patience to make it, and therefore made what i had created into a 3 second flash. I'm pretty happy with the result and hope it stands out, or stands up to the quality of submissions in this collab. Thanks for watching, well done DarkSoldier for fixing it all up together.

Cheers, Gaz.

It was a fun and challeging collab, I wanted to see what I could do. SO I gave it a shot!
There was a bit of getting used to doing all the fbf, and I was learning as I went along
with the collab. I just can't wait to see what will happen next! Anyways I don't know what
else to say, and you shouldn't be reading this...Watch the flash and enjoy!!

I had fun working on this collab and I hope that you enjoy it :)

I joined this collab a few days after I made my newgrounds account, and was really excited to be in it. This was actually the first time I've ever used flash before, and my work turned out pretty decent. Although i'm pretty surprised that i'm still in the collab because I haven't been to the thread in forever.

ARAE (Dougie484):
Despite their being some criticism of this collab in the beginning, i am extreemly glad i was able to work with a great group of people! This is my first real partial submission and it has been a great experience! I hope you enjoy the movie =D!

It was a great experience to participate in this collab. It was amazing how the expectation of the people was growing as the days passed. All the animators who participated in this (not only the co-authored, but ALL people who made a part) should be proud.

A lot can happen in 3 seconds as you are about to see, I should know!

DumbCook444 (DC444):
This collab has been really fun, especially working with the guys such as simple-line, shadow-1409, funkycaveman, and of course the leader of it all darksoldier. But this was the first ever collab i have been accepted into as a co-author. But i was in the credits of Sprite TV 2. Anyway i had a blast working on flashes, getting advice for fixing them and all the 6,7, months put into this was just fantastic. Enjoy the movie and be sure to invite your freinds cause this collab is gonna rock you mother freakin' world.

I had a lotta fun on this collab, and even more fun making the flashes i submitted. I'm also very glad i got to be co-authored, because i don't think I could pull off a solo project, as working by myself is too demanding :D. I hope my pieces were at least mediocre at best, that way i'll feel comfortable at night knowing I at least improved a little bit.

I Feel Like I Know What I'm Saying, When I Say That This Collab Took Almost Forever :P

Enjoy The Collab!
Sincerely, DarkSoldier & The Collab Members~

omg no!

when i submitted my part i was expecting the others parts to be A LOT better! i'm so disappointed! i was so excited to see this collab but most party were just stupid! omg i'm so sad!

don't get me wrong, there were some really cool parts (liked the style of the short with the guy who is hit by an apple, i dunno the artist name - didn't look for it) but others are just stupid text! :*-O

but: funkycaveman, the menu was just great!

i dunno what to say anymore. -.-

The art quality was almost universally poor. Most of the collab segments looked like they took 3 seconds instead of lasting 3 seconds, harsh as it sounds.

Having a collaboration with such an abstract topic hurts it more than it helps it. There was nothing tying one segment to the next aside from the length, which was, as the title says, 3 seconds. It made it feel almost like watching a Warioware game, which is almost headache inducing.

The sound was almost non existent, as the song was it. It looped poorly as well, and was a little bit annoying.

Sorry, but this collab was not terrible enjoyable. I didn't even smirk at most of the humor, and it was almost universally low quality work. I can only advise to make a more cohesive collab next time, and improve your art and animation.

It was a good idea

But too many of the flashes were way too bad.

I was going to crack a joke about the animation BEING three seconds, not TAKING three, but I won't, because that is mean.

Next time, try 'n either...
-Recruit some better animators (No offence)
-Get everyone to improve by then. :D
