UPDATE: Front page! Woo! Also, I noticed some confusion about TOFA. Yes, it is INDEED a REAL TOURNAMENT, happening right now on Newgrounds! You can view it here: http://tofa.newgrounds.com/

Dear future Dave, next TOFA entry, try not to make it too dialogue centric!

This is my entry to the Newgrounds Tournament of Flash Animators (TOFA) 2011 Open Round. The theme was to "Create a Game Show" and I only had 3 weeks to do this (it was actually only 2 weeks for me because I kind of goofed off the first week.)

This was based off of a movie my three friends, Matt, Ty and Mike made back in High School called "Amateur Film" where Tom, my twin brother, left to go do something, and my friends were bored and wanted to make a movie, so they kept pitching ideas for a movie, and each pitch would get a little cut away scene that would show why that kind of movie cant (or shouldn't) be done. I personally thought it was pure genius, but I wasn't a part of it! So when I saw this TOFA theme come up, I thought that I could make the spiritual successor to it by making this idea.

All roles have been reprized, just the setting is different. I hope you enjoy!

I found this to be a funny little cartoon. It's probably because of the good animation. It just wasn't great. I appreciate you dropping the title. I had no idea what that meant! It could have used more jokes though.

Some of them were predictable. For the most part, it was enjoyable. The meta references were pretty nice. How about a game show about saving kittens? No, some kittens might die.

Wow, would i know that i will be swell for this.

Like, this is such fine for a flash submission.
Let me guess.

I am really fuckin' swell for this bull shit. >:)

I knew it!

I knew this would win! Great job Dave!

This is how network television really makes shows

Believe it or not, it seems people like this in real life are making reality TV shows these days.

The animation and voice acting were all superb.

The only weakness is the recording style, or the voice recording equipment itself it appears. Vocal placement seemed a bit distanced away from the microphone.

Yeah, I have this really crappy old $5 mic I got from Super K :/ really need to fix that lol. Thanks for liking!
