This is my first official Flash-vid on Newgrounds.
The goal was to make some karaoke-clip for a friend’s song. After synchronizing it, I decided to enhance the whole project with some animations. To give it a certain style, I choose to use only four colours: White, black and two kinds of blue. It starts off with the simple karaoke, so people can memorize the refrain, and then it continues with some rhythmical animations.

Even if the song is in German, it’s sung by a Belgian singer, who sings for our local traditions: carnival.

I'll be honest, I had no idea what any of the lyrics meant. However I thought the animation was nice for typography. The colors were nice and the texts showed up clearly and smoothly. The song was also catchy. I gave it a 4 because I wish there would be more graphics to go along with the text, but that's just my opinion.

Damokles responds:

Thanks for the review!

I have to agree with your opinion and I guess that I will try to follow your advice for my next project, if I ever do something in this style again.

This was alright, though this should have been in the Audio section of Newgrounds instead of here. Just saying.

Damokles responds:

Well, I didn't sing, nor did I play any instrument, I just made the animation, so the song is not really my creation.
