I'm glad to finally have this finished after 6 months of work accumulating of lines, music, and sound. I also got to work with a bunch of different talents who were able to contribute in their own way. TwinComposer (Hill and Wynn) added a whole different dynamic to what otherwise would have been a bland flash. They were a lot of fun to work with and I enjoyed interacting with them and brainstorming themes and parts together. Talk to them if you need music for your flash!
Another special thanks to my voice actors, who added a lot of quality to the flash, as well as my sound composers JesseJames11, and A1desertstorm! Also Teejay-number 13 for his 3D effects and Budge007 for his additional help testing and giving me feedback.
This idea has been with me a long time now, and if feels good to have it done. I'm a huge fan of old newground flashes based on videogames, and to me this is a contemporary tribute to those who inspired me into animation. Originals are coming soon though! These have been a great way to learn the basics of animation.
I tried my best to make this as interesting and fun as possible for what it was. I still plan to learn more from it by reading all your reviews, which helped me get anywhere decent in the first place.
Enjoy

Also Special thanks to Chaosdrakath for his final beta

That was superb. Everything flowed really nicely and the 3D effects really added visual depth to the movie. Voice acting was also amazing. This whole movie felt to me like watching Star Wars Episode 4 set in the Mario universe.

However one thing I found quite jarring was the mixing of drawn vector elements with sprites. Every time the scene changed from pixellated sprites to smooth graphics it knocked me out of the story. I noticed that the vectors were used in the close up shots to show character expressions, but there is a way in Flash to make vector graphics look like sprites.

:iconeastbeastfilms:
Eastbeastfilms Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Student Filmographer
Thanks I agree about what you said about the vectors : > one of the learning experiences I had while doing this flash was getting more into drawn animation and I guess I was just eager to incorporate it in my latest project XD I understand it can be jarring, and I know now to either do one or the other : >

And yes, starwars was a big influence on this project lol Thanks for taking the time to review! : >

That's okay. After seeing this I'm sure you can make some great drawn animation. I'm not biased against sprites, but working with them does feel a bit limiting.
Reply
:iconeastbeastfilms:
Eastbeastfilms Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2013  Student Filmographer
Its true, and a lot of my friends feel the same way. Drawn animation can be funner and more rewarding. Sprites are a good teaching tool though
