It was okay

I liked it, but some of the voices were much quieter than the sound effects. I had to turn the speakers way up to hear them speak, then way down when something happened. Other than that, it was extremely random, there for, it rocked.

Great chain of thought.

Would like to see a much longer version...would even be a great full length movie...like the way the thought process works from scene to scene....since one thing always leads to another it leaves the whole thing wide open....could keep going for a long time....now, about the sound...why would Roy steal that credit from Bob...or why would Bob want to take credit for it....I guess it could be worse....

Why'd you submit this twice?

You said you'd made changes from the original, but you hadn't, it was exactly the same as the first one there was nothing different about it at all.

As this is the same submission as Your Insanity, here's my review for that.

From the start it was just completely random and it worked really well, I enjoyed watching it, it was a good movie. The whole thing just looked like you were making it up as you went along as each thing that happened next was just completely unrelated to what happened before. There were a few things I didn't like though, these were the frog, which was an ongoing joke throughout the movie, I just found it really annoying and I didn't like it at all, I also didn't like the part with the old lady as it was just completely irrelevant to the movie, despite how random it was. The only other problem was the sound, thevoices were of a poor quality and were also very quiet, and the sound effects were mostly just really annoying and horrible sounding. The movie could also have done with perhaps being a bit longer and continuing on as I was really enjoying what it was that I was seeing, and I was dissapointed to see it end where it ended at, I did like the whole idea of it all being filmed though, it just added to how good it was. Anyway, well done, good job, keep up the good work.

Please don't submit the exact same submission twice, there's no point in doing so whatsoever.

Sorry about giving this all 0's and for voting 0 but that's my rules when people submit the exact same entry twice, even if I liked the movie, like I did with this one.

Peace Out, Afro Stud

I respect your policy on voting 0's for resubmits, and I appreciate your criticism's as they are entirely constructive. Thanks for that.

Here's a little background on why I resubmitted the flash: First let me say that this was back in the days of newgrounds when (at least as I was aware) you couldn't "edit" your submissions or upload a new version of the swf. What you had first put up was there until the end of time unless you talked to Wade or someone else from the NG crew.

That said: The original swf had been made and submitted using, I think, flash 4. On top of that, it was my first EVER attempt at real flash work. So there were some major issues in the animation and sound sync of the original. At that time I hadn't discovered the Audio Stream property and was using everything as an Event. Then Flash 5 came out just a few months later and the improved processing of the new engine really accentuated the little flubs in the work.

All this added up to the original submission only playing correctly on 'average' computer systems. If your system was just one or two hundred megahertz slower or faster than mine, then a lot of things came out of sync from how I had intended them.

So I re-encoded and touched up the things that really bothered me about the film and re-posted it. (The Audio is still all Events because even then I hadn't found the glory of the Stream.) Later, I contacted Wade and asked him to replace the original 'Your Insanity' swf with the updated one - but leaving both entry submissions up for continuity sake.

So, that's how I ended up with two Your Insanity submissions. Of coarse, now I've got so much viewer feedback and so many reviews on each of the submits that I wouldn't want to dump either one unless it could all be consolidated. And with a PHP system as hefty and cross-referenced as Newgrounds, I doubt any of the crew would be up for volunteering the time to make it happen.

Anyway, that's the story. Thanks for asking! ;)


"The animator is a very busy man-


and then the credits roll.

That was freaking awesome, good sir.


THAT WAS HILARIOUS!! This silly crud happens all the time in my workstation!
