The VietNAM Rap Project

Hey Newgrounds, been a LONG TIME. Who remembers me? Anybody? No? Oh, alright.

Back in the beginning of August, our government teacher, Coach Shives, forced us to make a stupid project. The best part? It had to be a song. Now, as much fun as THAT is, we decided as a group (well, I decided) to make an animation about it, forgetting how long animation takes...again.

THIS is that project!
DON'T EXPECT PIXAR-STUFF HERE. Like, honestly, we had 3 days, and even then we reached the deadline without ever actually finishing the lip-sync (which I did afterwords and worked the hardest on in the end). Not too mention, we were PRETTY unenthusiastic about it, granted, we have a reason, this doesn't look like that much fun, does it? Whether that adds to the humor or not is up to you. For me? WHATEVER. So, no, this isn't the next Bonehead or the next Maximillion Bagsworth, but this is, however, a nice little snack, so take a bite already!
And, yes, expect BUTTONS for TIMELINES in all my future animations, and BETTER LIP-SYNC. This should give you an idea of what I'm talkin' about.

Oh, by the way, this took me 6 days, which, in Newgrounds Animator Terms, means 3 days of intense, heart pounding sweat-workshoppin' over my keyboard, 1 day of getting it in on deadline unfinished (still got a hundred, haha), 2 weeks of hating the project, 4 days of turning on the project and looking at it, and 3 days of actually finishing it up.

FUN FACT - For the first time ever, and probably because it was taking longer than I thought, I checked how many times I had to draw lip-syncing mouths 'cuz I thought it give me a chuckle or a giggle or some kinda' chortle. It turned out to be 753 separate mouth drawings. 753, no mouth used twice, frame by frame, 20 frames per second. Dang. That's depressing.



Really impressed with what you did with a short amount of time, sweet artwork and great animation.

Keep up the good work, its refreshing to see something fun like this after a while. Loved the end credits "NEWGROUNDS" lol

well done :D


Pretty good by regular flash standards but pretty amazing for a 3 day school project. Like all of your animations it was pretty smooth and had amazing lip-syncing.

Gosh SO many mouths!

Hot damn, that's a lot of mouths to draw!! Haha

I might've drawn that much in my past animations, though I've never taken the time to count.
Having said that, the way you do mouths is pretty interesting and unique! Although eventually frame by frame might bore you out. It did with me, and I do about half reusing mouths and have frame by frame.
Also, your mouth syncing is superb, I think it'd be even better looking if you made chins go down with the talking as well. it's a pain though, as I have to do that with my Kolawskum characters who has a beak..thing. lol XD

The backgrounds were nice and simple, and I liked the colors you used.

Overall pretty awesome! And interesting enough to watch the whole way through so nice job! :D

Thanks a bunch, Onions!

I was absolutely DREADING the mouths by the way.
I animated all the motions first, and then I was like, "...crap wait, people have mouths. Kill me."


Dillon: Got eleven kills then called in the dogs to wipe out the Viet Congs.

Casey: Then they retreated and that was cool, we went back to camp to look for the pool.

Chase: ...but...

Dillon: There wasn't a pool.

Casey: Oh yeah, camp sucked.
P.S. If I have mistaked something, Its not really a big deal.
P.S.S. 10/10 5/5

Great! I loved it, and you say it is not done!?

Spectacular! It's educational too!! It's really fun, and I loved it even though it is not done. This gets a 10, but your next one gets 20/10! *encouraging look* finish it, finish it, finish it!
