This is one of the most strangest videos I've seen on newgrounds... How can kids find something like that in a sandbox? Thats impossible... Or next too...
I found three things creepy on this,
1. That one kid... He just wouldn't stop smiling no matter what happened...
2. All those clones of those other...err.. People.
3. When the monster attacked that kid, and how he was after that... It was extremely wierd...
If youd only given the kids some individual characteristics.
I was wondering how these animations were made and thankfully the guy down below me answered it. That's actually what I originally thought but could not believe it. Glad that was clarified.
Ontopic: I can't have enough of these. This is definitely going to stick to my head and I won't be able to forget it for a long time. I love seeing animations that show there was a lot of hard work put into them. This was one of them. Great job.
I love it!
I like the idea of kids stumbling upon a gruesome psychedelic monster. It reminds me of that scene in Pan's Labyrinth with the child eater.
Grumatorium is one of those videos that have so much charm, they pretty much explode with it. I'm an avid fan of Barfquestion's work, and as a fan let me attempt to clear a few things up about his work:
Firstly, The "animation" you see are really thousands of hand-drawn frames, painstakingly created and photographed with the utmost care into a stop-motion of sorts. This is the truth... anyone thinking otherwise can PM me.
Secondly, on a less... disproving note, the stick figures in Barfquestion's films are an alternate race of humanoids, actually called Barfquestions. They nearly always play the role of lead character, living alongside the ordinary (and comparitively dull) Humans. There are much less Barfquestions than Humans, and as such there are never that many shown in each film.
Good day, I hope this was beneficial.
