A* Ep. 2 Trailer

Author Comments

Continuing on with making bite-sized trailer versions of my old episodes, episode 2 of Supermassive Black Hole A* now gets the trailer treatment. This one was a toughie to trailerify due to how the story goes, but whatareyagonnado.

The full episode is already here on Newgrounds, and is also on the A* site,


And yes this is an old episode, so sound/art/animation are a bit rougher than they are in more recent ones. Ah, progress!



Not much, but it's a trailer. Although I found the scientists voice acting was, holding back, the animation was smooth, could use some more frames, but it could do. I'm not sure how you like to color, but I kind of thought that the shadowing would be a bit much, the whole movie, but don't ask me-
-Overall = 7/10, not anything truly special here, but don't give up, keep making flash my freind!

Ah yeah I think I can get much more Proctory with Proctor's voice (if that's who you mean by "the scientist": he's the guy with the huge glasses :); he's a bit more out there in episode 5 (final scene), so check that out if you get a chance and let me know if you think it's an improvement for him.

Also the latest episode--5--does start to incorporate gray tones for more shading/smoke/etc effects, and I do think it helps a lot!

Nice voice acting

and some of the artwork was very cool as well. however, there were a couple of flaws, for example, a majority of the animation was basically two frames long, i would suggest adding more in-betweens. and also, why did you even upload this trailer here if the full episode is already uploaded? for more publicity? it just seems rather redundant to me.

People find this review helpful!
smbhax responds:

Whoa, somebody actually complimented the voice acting! :o Thanks!

Totally redundant! But I'm making them for my own web site--so people popping in can just get a quick preview of an episode--and figured I might as well put them here since...well, since I've got them! Besides they do seem kind of handy, since you can't skip ahead in Flash (well, I'm not that sophisticated to make a skip control), if you aren't sure you want to invest in watching a full 8 minute episode, you can just check out the minute-long trailer to see if it'll be worth it.

Really I started making them because since my full episodes lately (as of episode 5) are too big to put here on NG (and deviantART, although actually I'm not sure if dA has a size limit...), I have to make small trailers for those...so I figured I might as well be complete about it and have trailers for all my episodes.

And yeah a little extra publicity couldn't hurt. :o
