I Resubmitted it beacuse of the audio problems...now I fixed it


Super 8 database cinema is open source interactive flash animation.
It is sequel of interactive compilation called Super 8 cinema which was
submitted on newgrounds in march of 2009. Now there is one animation called ''Guilt'' and it's fully open. If you choose random mode, cpu will generate order of shots. If you choose custom mode, you can make your own cut of this animation. But first...watch the animation in linear- cronological way. You can activate modes by dragging roles of film into projector.


Three animations in ''Super 8 cinema'' (first one) was called after moments
(hope, joy and fear). This animation I called ''gulit'' and i tried to show that feeling using minimalistic style of animation and aestetics of super 8mm clips.


You can make your own cut of this. You can post timeline code in your comments. For example... linear code is 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-1 2...My alternative version of animation is...4-2-5-7-6-8-10-11-3-
(in editing you can use same shots over and over)
Posting various codes of versions in comments allows expanding the meaning of this animation. I'm looking forward to see your versions!

My ALTERNATIVE VERSION: 4-2-5-7-6-8-10-11-3-9-12-

For those who didn't watch the first one super 8 cinema:

Freaky awesome

I haven't ever seen anything original like this. cool, but really weird. try adding color?

Artistic thoughts...

A nice change to see an animation leaning towards artwork. It is noticable that
at least some of your artwork has been traced from video. However I am not sure this detracts from the work or not.....

Open source?

What do you mean by "open source" as it refers to your Flash submission here? Are you implying that if some one asks you'll give them the original FLA or something? I'm not sure you're applying the term correctly, which would mean you don't know what it means.

On another note, the separate "scenes" or clips you can shuffle and what-not were just too abstracted from one another for it to really be worth trying to compile them into a new order. In my opinion, at least, the "movie" is basically meaningless no matter what order you put the shots in. Which means probably not a lot of people are going to bother with creating their own video "code". It's a neat idea, but you would have really needed to put some time and thought into the clips you included in order to make it interesting for people to go about forming their own, cohesive, video sequences. As it stands, all you have is a bunch of poorly drawn/animated random shots of garbage (again - my opinion)... which does not lend to cohesion of a movie-experience whatsoever.

Lastly... what the hell was with the animation of the guy reaching down his throat and then (apparently) out of his own ass? Not only do I not see the correlation in that to your theme of "guilt", but it was really, really poorly done. He reached into his mouth with his HAND, directly... there is absolutely no way his ELBOW is going to come out first on the other side of anything. Just strange, and like I said, not worth the time to examine and re-shuffle the clip order.

I like the idea, but not as it is executed here.


I really liked the art/animation style on this flash, and the music fit very well with it. I found that scene where the guy eats his own arm strangely hilarious. Also, it's pretty cool how you can rearrange the movie however you like. I just wonder what you were thinking when you came up with this.


Wait 4 the second part
