[June 7th-13th]
After a message from Mr. Fulp himself, the collab is now front paged! I've never been front paged for anything I submitted. I have for a few collabs and such, but this was submitted under my name! So thank you so much to Tom, and to all the supports. Means a lot, and glad to see some extra exposure for the collab and its participants :)

[June 4th]
I'm pissed off at my own idiocy! I just realized that after all the work I put into this, I never gave it a preloader!!!! How many people watched it, all they saw was a white screen while it was loading, voted 0 and moved on!? Although it is frustrating beyond belief, I can't live in the past. Atleast it's fixed now. Ugh...


"Did You Hear That?" is a collaboration of sound and animation from 10 talented artists here on Newgrounds.

All participants in this collab were hand selected by me, Goat-Man. All activities in this collab were conducted through privatemessages. Meaning members had no interaction with each other, and never knew who they were working with.

Each member was told to hand in one random sound effect.The sound was allowed to be anything that they wanted. I took all handed in sound effects, and organized them into a random order. Each member was given this compiled sound file, and weren't allowed to change it in any way.

Since there were no interactions between members, each animation came out 100% different because they were unable to take ideas from one another.

The name "Did You Hear That?" came from the idea that each sound effect was interpreted differently. So each member heard and invisioned a different scene than the others.

This is actually the first time that members in the collab will be able to see everyone that they worked with throughout the project. But, that was really just me being a tease more than anything :P

Thank you so much to the members for your hard work and efforts.
This was a blast to work on, and I loved organizing it!
I hope you all love how it turned out as much as I do.


I loved this

This was a work of genius. I had to send it to other people, and I can't wait until the next one comes out! It is amazing how you had came up with all the different animations that could fit the sound.

Noodle responds:

Just to clear it up, every part was made by a different person. I get the impression that you caught that while watching it. I just am not completely certain based on your wording.

Thanks for passing it around!!
it's good to share

Best collab ever?!?

I think it's really funny to see how different people think different things when they hear the same sounds. U should definately make a volume 2, 3, 4 and go on like that untill u have reached volume 100.million.billion (in my humble opinion)

People find this review helpful!
Noodle responds:

Volume 2 is under way now! I already have 3 parts turned in.
It should be done be June/July.

I would like to continue the series, but I don't want it to grow stale. If the creative train starts slowing down I might put an end to it. But right now I can't see when that would ever be :)


IN THE MOST AWESOME WAY!!! lol, and when i say random i mean RANDOM! THis is just so funny and RANDOM-in the goood way...scratch that in a GOD way, lol- very good bravo!

Noodle responds:

After I submitted it to the portal, God, Zues, Buddah and I all had a rockin party. Zues plays a mean bass!

This is a collab idea from beyond!

It's amazing how people can interpret sounds differently, but also how similarly. Each flash was unique, but some sounds had the same idea, but ocasionally it was very different!

All in all, an amazing idea! So unique for a collab! But now the question, will/is there another coming?

Noodle responds:

Glad you enjoyed it so much!
And I can gladly say YES!
I have a set of entirely new animators, all handing in completely new sounds.
I don't have a due date, but you should definately expect a Did You Hear That? volume 2!

Amazing Idea, Really Cool

That was great. The idea of using the same set of sounds is really creative. All of the animations were great. A little bit of everything, from really abstract to realistic. Really cool collab. The only 'negative' thing I have to say is that there were a few spelling errors. Great job, can't wait to see your next peice of work.


Noodle responds:

Spelling errors? Like in the menus and such? Usually I'm pretty diligent at making sure I avoid things like that. I'll have to sweep through and see what I can find!
