This is a trailer/introduction.

Created with LS Maker, video camera, and flash.

This took a long time and a lot of effort. Hell this was made when there was still snow on the ground as you can see in the flash itself. It's just being done now.

This is episode 1 of 3. The reason it's split up into three episodes is because the file would be way too big if we would try to fit it all into one.

Please enjoy and review. Leave your youtube comments to yourself and remember that every type of movie is welcome on newgrounds. Not just flash. Remember Numa Numa right?

Sorry for the bad quality in video and also audio, but it's the only way to get such a big file to fit without being like 50 MB's.

Watch the high quality version here. (minus the space)

Like always, thanks to http://miharuforever.newg rounds.com/ for doing the flash related things. He will be coed on the submission if he wants to be. I'll talk to him about it.

It would probably help if you watched Hay Wars first just so you knew what was going on and everything even though there isn't too much of a story yet. :)

You were trying I see

This is the greatest movie ever.
But it's still pretty good.
It was a bit funny and was a good trailer for what looks like what's going to be a good and humorous film.
Now the dialogue seemed kinda cheap though and there was some really bad acting in this movie.
But it was worth a laugh.
The special effects were okay but there weren't many of them.
So you did okay on this and I'm anticipating the realese of this film.

Fro responds:

This film won't be released.

Bad acting?


Not quite there

This isn't the best movie I've ever seen, but then again, it's by no accounts the worst one either. I think that the visual effects that you used over the metal track were poor, to say the least, especially as the movie screed didn't fit in the line "Comes the highly anticipated..." It sets a bad tone for the whole piece.

When it comes to the video, the music was too loud for the voices in places, which really let it down. Personally, I wouldn't waste so much time with producing a lengthy introductory video, that keeps going to a black screen for "directed by", "starring" and all that other stuff. You can get that out of the way in a few minutes. This looks more like a trailer, rather than the first episode. It doesn't really offer much of an introduction - if you were trying to make it look like a movie trailer, get a final frame piece, with a big promotional shot, some great graphics and some things like the traditional billboard print for who's in it and everything.

Still, something to work on, is always good.

Fro responds:

Yeah in the author comments I mention that it is just a trailer for the movie, but I agree with you this really didn't turn out well. Not in flash at least. Try and watch the youtube version, which is also posted in my author comments and you will notice that the audio and video problems are fixed and it runs much more smoothly.

You can also think of it as an introduction when the other 2 episodes are played right in a row and it runs together quite smoothly. We've decided not to finish this now and you'll just be getting some sprite flashes from me and that's probably about it for the movies that I submit to newgrounds. I'll try to get 5 sprites or so more and then I'll be done.

Thanks for the review.

Looks like a promising movie.

This trailer did a good job of building up anticipation for the finished product. You and that Nick fellow are pretty good actors. My favorite part was definately the "Do you know what day it is" part, that was a brilliant sequence of events. There were a few glitched here and there, but it must be difficult translating video to flash format. Anyway, keep up the good work and I am looking forward to seeing the whole thing!

Fro responds:

Flash rapes video files.

Thanks for the review.


Ah, hey Corey. Im sry this has taken so long to get to you, but im more active now so, heres my review.

Well, the voice acting is very well done, and as many people have stated the music goes along heavenly with the whole war theme. I also like the location, if that counts for anything.

Again ill go along with people saying the quality isnt amazing, and i also had some problems with glares from the sun at some points during the movie.

It is better than anything i can do. If this is the trailer, then i am pretty sure the whole movie will amazing. Good Job! And like you said if the violence wil be better than Hay Wars, then nothing could go wrong.

Fro responds:

The only thing that could go wrong would be that it won't actually get finished because it's such a tedious project. :(

Thanks for the review.


Well, the trailer is very promising. The acting here is very good. You guys sound and look like you would be doing this every day.

Too bad the quality of the picture is so low, but I guess if it was a higher quality then you would have problems with the file size limit.
It's a good thing that you also have a higher quality version on youtube.

Like sonofkirk stated, the text moves around too much. It's ok that it is "animated" as this is a bit more interesting than if it would just sit there. But this was too much. Also, some of the text couldn't be seen as it was off screen (for example the line "the highly aniticipated" was cut off at the end).

Also, the picture and the sound where slightly off during the middle of the trailer.

Anyway, this trailer looks very promising and I hope to see the full "snow wars" soon!

Fro responds:

The funny thing about putting video in flash, unless you are allowed to have a file size that's like 15 MB, the sound just doesn't line up no matter how hard you try.

The text in the beginning was my fault. :( It's my noobnest with flash.

You won't be seeing the full snow wars soon if every though. :(

Thanks for the review.
