So this is my last minute entry for Madness Day.
It was basically done in a little over 24 hours, so it's not the best animation I could've done - but it was a really fun experiment. I'm not sure if it's funny.... or not funny... Anyway, enjoy!
Happy Madness Day! Gogogo!!
Something Beyond Madness
A Madness cartoon without violence is actually pretty experimental, but this is more like a topical documentary overall. It almost qualifies under Drama or Noir, because it isn't really meant to be funny. It's also very political, with people spouting "face-ist" in regards to the matter at hand.
This is a very cool flash, because it sticks out of the typical premise of Madness by incorporating actual voice-overs and a more somber atmosphere up to and including the non-techno soundtrack, a radical departure. It is also the first Madness in recent memory not to include the standard array of mutants somewhere out in Nevada, instead placing the original faceless folk in an unnamed city living typical lives. Peel back the tribute to a violent cartoon series and discover a biopic-style one-against-the-system story about rejection and alienation.
Wronchi accomplished something quite different when he created this Madness tribute: he created something far beyond Madness itself. He actually created a drama that transcended its origins so well, if you never knew what the Madness cartoons were, you'd swear this belonged to another category. That's an achievement in itself. The fact that it's a Flash less than 2 MB also adds to its appeal.
5/5 and 10/10
It's not too often I find something truly confrontational almost anywhere anymore and I hadn't expected this to have the impact it did on me. In your, from what I can read from the description, attempts to make something funny, you've come to make something a lot more meaningful. This is a flash that... as far as I can tell, goes into something that's happening in the world right now, and slowly, people are doing something to change this, and I seriously loved how it mentioned that these kinds of movements shouldn't even be necessary. Underneath this flash is a hard fact that needs to be faced and you just did such an awesome job with this.
And the fact that this is a Madness tribute doesn't even need mentioning. :D
I think it is safe to say this is the funniest madness video I've ever seen. Great idea!
NICE man was kinda deep but i wouldnt say as deep as some people are reading into it.....its kinda like that southpark episode scrotie mc boogerballs...
