The animations in Banished Collaboration A were made for the 1st round of 3 of the NewGrounds Stick Showdown Competition in the Animation forum.
Round 1 - Professional Category : Eviltie, Oxob3000, ArmorStick, LuccasBode
Additional intro and outro animation by Eviltie

Our theme for round 1 is "Banished". A telekinetic man, a master of all nature and one whose force has no limits escape the mob that is chasing them out of their village.

Don't forget to check out our new "Review" section in the menu if you're a fan of the competition. You get to see who wins and why and maybe learn a thing or two if you're an aspiring animator. :)

I would also like to take a moment to express my gratitude to our friend. Over the past few years I've met many talented animators in this project. I can safely say he was one of the most dedicated and creative of them all.
***In memory of Luccas Bode***

EDIT: Thanks for the frontpage and daily feature! :)

I noticed a lot of you guys were wondering what happened to the purple character. The thing is the participants had to choose one of the 3 characters to animate. Nobody chose the purple one. The most common reason was that he was harder to animate.


i give that pink guy a snipers salute for being so damn sneaky he didnt have to do anything he snook around and got to the objective. very well made movie to

Well Done Guys

I must agree with djtooth, To say someone's force has no limit yet only show 2 or three different ways the nature and telekeneesis guy fight the others doesn't make it too fair. What happened to the shots of the red guy?

I'm sorry but I got to nock a half a star for that.

So... i didnt see the pink guy until the end... Was he being chased at all?

That's a good question! Actually, the participants had to choose one of the 3 characters. Nobody chose the pink guy because apparently he was too hard to animate. :)

Ah, quite nice! Collabs are always fun to watch for their variety and the 3d section was a pleasent surprise. I'm not a huge fan of stick figures but there was enough interesting animation and backgrounds to keep me engaged. The plot was a little thin, not much happened and i didn't really understand who the various characters were. The voice acting was okay but i never really got a feel fo the personality of any of the characters as they all spoke so infrequently and for such short periods of time. Regardless it was fun and well made!
