If the movie lags try to lower the quality.

Well I finally decided to submit it here on Newgrounds, my graduating project for my animation class which I made one year ago. I made the music myself you can download it in the audio portal, all instruments where played each one at a time.
It was my first time mixing it all together and is not quite at the level which I wanted it to be.
I also did a lot of rotoscoping in this movie filming myself and drawing over it as an expirimental test. The song was inspired by various things such as the music of Cab Calloway and Tom Waits.
Please PM me if you find something wrong with the flash

Small conversations, obscene
relations just an unwashed fake romance.
Horny sound from a growlin' hound and a perverted old street cat.

Dirty floors, suite coats black ties
Come to take their chance,
He got a big bag of money, just for his dirty honey,
For his sore street romance.

Daddy's little girl, in a pretty red dress,
And a pink pistol in her hand .
Her tears are black and her hair is a mess,
she could not understand.

She blows the sax like no other,
She learned to play, from her mother.
Easy lover, under the cover
and a bedtime story from a prostitute,

Who was never taught the explanation, never had the education
to feel another vibration of love.

He got a big bag of money, just for is dirty honey,
For his sore street romance.

I really liked the style of this flash, and the animation was good. But I felt that the plot was a little hard to understand. Who was the main character? At first I thought it was the singer, but then it seemed like the 'smiling cardplayer' had the main role. Then this other guy shot him, and I thought that he was the main character. But then suddenly we get to see this girl crying, and we never get to see the person who used the gun again.
Anyways, I would have given you 10/10, if it were not for what I saw as lack of plot.
Great music. :)

Hey thanks for the review, there is a plot in this flash but my main goal was getting the mood and images to match the music like what you see in most music video´s. I´ve had several reactions, some people thought there was no story while others catched on to every detail of it (which surprised me)

Thanks for the review.

Quite like the style, lyrics weren't clear at all, subtitles would have helped I have to say. Interesting project and I can see where you're coming from, still it's always a downer to be reminded of prostitution and its dehumanizing effect, I picked up something like acknowledgement and sympathy from the song, but again couldn't pick out enough to truly tell you what was being sung.

Keep it up, hope to see what else you can do.

I love the atmosphere and effects, but somehow fbf animation wasn't good enough, sometimes it added more noir feeling, but sometimes it looked just awkward, but overall great job!
